Reviewed 29 December 2013

We stayed here on our way home because the Holiday Inn Express' offer such an extensive complimentary breakfast. We were given a newly remodeled room. The room smelled from the new furniture and carpet. We thought it would dissipate if we ran the fan and so we unpacked and settled in. Being tired from the drive we choose not to...

Came here for a lacrosse tournament at the Polo Grounds only 3 miles away and convenient, easy in and out freeway access still close enough to Santa Barbara; nearby shopping center.

The first room I was given reeked of smoke despite being a no-smoking room. The second room was fine and quiet, however a friend complained her room had too much noise from above to sleep through the night. If you are allergic to animals I saw no less than half dozen dogs in the hotel. The place was not overly...

This is by far the worst and the dirtiest HIE I have experienced in my life. First I was not informed of being in a pet room. The carpets were so dirty I had to throw away my socks. DO NOT STAY THERE you would be better off down the street at motel 6

I stayed here whilst traveling up from LA to San Fransisco. Wanted to see Santa Barbara and this was the closest hotel we could get in budget. It did all we need. The service was helpful in providing maps for Santa Barbara and some recommendations. Also some close by shops and the beach 10 minutes walk from the hotel is...

The hotel does exactly what it promises. The rooms are comfortable, large and clean (although about to be totally refurbished), public areas are nice, and the hotel offers access to washing machines and tumble driers (massively appreciated on a short stay with insufficient time to send clothes to the hotel laundry!) The breakfast is a typically HI Express breakfast (fundamentally...

Review is based solely on my opinion only: Ok, I know there are some limited options for mid range- budget hotels in the area however if you are paying ~200$/night you should get a certain level of service. I've stayed in Holiday inn express all over the world and this is probably on the lower tier for service. Booked over...

My husband went to Santa Barbara for a week for work and I tagged long for fun.
