Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Group Friendly property"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
A nice two story property with rooms with interior corridors, an outdoor pool & jacuzzi, free hot breakfast, free wifi and ample parking. Group friendly hotel, with everything a group is searching for rooms with some extra living room space, mini fridge, laundry on-site, fitness rooms, quiet location, etc. It is close to the 101 freeway, just 10 miles from Santa Barbara, close to the local beach, close to shopping, fast food restaurants, grocery stores and quaint beautiful old town Carpinteria. What makes this such a great location is how much you can save just for staying outside of pricey Santa Barbara.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"I wish I knew about you guys sooner, I've enjoyed being able to come home and go to the computer and see lots of hotels asking me to stay with them. (almost like that commercial, when the banks fight over getting your business) Will recommend to others and can't wait to use the service again myself." P.C. - Philadelphia, PA
