Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 211 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location The hotel is in a prime location to State Street and an easy bike ride or walk to the Pier. Just be aware, this is not a typical Holiday Inn Express. It is a historic building and that does not mean it has lots of charm. It's just an old building. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they have free bikes to use, and the parking was easy... although $14 a day was a bit outrageous. Make sure you get a room on the third floor in the back. the historic nature of this hotel means that all the walls and windows are paper thin. In a previous stay, I was kept awake most of the night by the late night bar hoppers. (room was on the first floor facing the street) My most recent room (third floor in the back) was very peaceful. I didn't hear any street noise. The city of Santa Barbara should allow them to update the windows. It would change everything. There is nothing specifically wrong with this hotel. Just know what you are getting in advance. If you are expecting an experience like you would find at one of the many new Holiday Inn Express' this will not be it. Great staff. Great location. Good rooms. March 5, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable rooms and great location My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Santa Barbara. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very quiet. The second floor balcony is an excellent place to drink coffee, read a book and get some work done while you are gazing at the mountains. Wonderful stay! March 2, 2015
