good beds and pillows, very quiet.
a little over priced.
The room: very clean, well equipped, very comfortable bed, very quiet despite facing the 101 (windows must be of excellent quality!). Pool looks nice (we did not use it), pretty noisy though since it is on the 101 side.
The breakfast: not enticing at all, even the bread tasted bad... Unless you like oversweetened sticky pastries, already made omelets and miniature beef patties waiting in a plastic cupboard, you'd better skip the breakfast and find a better one elsewhere in Carpinteria or Santa Barbara (easy!). Cafeteria atmosphere does not match the standing of the room at all.
we lost an earring in sink and staff was very helpful
I very much liked the sofa couch microwave and refrigerator.
The only problem was the bad communication between bookings.com and Holiday Inn Express. The reservation sent by bookings.com to the hotel did not match the dates that I had reserved. Fortunately the guy at the front desk gave me a room even if the reservation he received from bookings.com was incorrect.
