Enjoy Santa Barbara Hotel's Historic Charm

Classic touches of California Spanish Revival add to the historic feel of the Holiday Inn Express® Hotel Santa Barbara. The hotel's historic property, also known as the Hotel Virginia and built in 1917, features Malibu and Catalina tile-work, exposed brick walls and wrought-iron railings, all in a convenient downtown location.

With the hotel's location in Santa Barbara, the sights and sounds of the city are just steps away. Quietly charming, Santa Barbara boasts stunning Spanish architecture at sites like the Santa Barbara Courthouse. The beach and Stearns Wharf are only a few blocks from the hotel, while the Santa Barbara Zoo is about two miles away. Don't miss a chance to see the Santa Barbara Mission, known as the "Queen of the Missions."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Family friendly and close to everything you need in Santa Barbara August 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Santa Barbara HI Express Hotel has convenient location. Friendly staff. Mattress was bad - felt like I was sleeping in a valley August 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great beds and service Spent a weekend visiting daughter and stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. This is one of the best Holiday Inns I have stayed at, and I was especially pleased with the comfort of the bed, staff attentiveness and its proximity to the downtown area...close enough to walk to and far enough away for it to feel like I was staying in a quiet little town.
