Positive Reviews

Excellent location

Guests are delighted by the location of this hotel. You'll love being able to walk to attractions along the waterfront and if you tire of pounding the pavements, you can take advantage of the hotel's free bicycle rental. Also, the hotel is within a ten-minute drive of State Street, where there are some fabulous shopping opportunities and unique dining spots.

Awesome service

According to guest feedback, the service on offer at the Holiday Inn Express Santa Barbara is nothing short of awesome. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the Santa Barbara area and happy to share some great tips for local restaurants. Overall, you'll find the service friendly and accommodating and that the staff is on hand when you need them.

Great rooms

Although the rooms at the hotel are on the older side, guests rate them highly regardless, often describing them as full of character. The rooms are clean upon arrival and kept that way throughout your stay thanks to an attentive housekeeping team. Guests also find the Wi-Fi is fast and stable.

Negative Reviews

Some internal noise

As noted, this hotel is housed in an older property (the building dates back to circa 1917). Although this feature adds a layer of charm, it also means that you can expect thin walls and, consequently, some noise from your neighbors.

Parking can be tricky

Parking at the hotel is at a premium, so finding a space may be tricky. A fairly frequent recommendation from guests is that you avoid the stress entirely and pay a little extra to take advantage of the hotel's valet parking option.

Basic breakfast

The buffet breakfast shouldn't disappoint too much, but feedback suggests that it's unlikely to wow either. More than a few guests describe breakfast as distinctly basic and as offering a limited range of items.
