The front desk staff were wonderful! The room was nice, comfortable, and clean. It was nice to have the patio to sit in the courtyard. The location is convenient to the beach - about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. “Downtown” Carpenteria has some cute shops and restaurants just five minutes from the hotel. Other than the beach, there isn’t much to do in the immediate area. Downtown Santa Barbara is about a 15 minute drive from the hotel, unless traffic is bad. Room service food was just so-so, without many choices. The service was good though. We have just two complaints; the lack of on demand movie rentals; and the noise from the people above us. The floors were very creaky whenever the people above us walked about, and we could hear their bed squeaking as they were having sex, which was a bit creepy. Overall it was a good experience, and we’d stay there again.

Property was clean the only thing was the property was a little out dated

Nice room, It was clean. The beds were not good. The staff were nice.

The hotel is conveniently located in Carpinteria. They’re closing the pool at 6pm and opening it at 9am. Totally annoying because a lot of places have the pool open even the beach is open . The room was big so was the bathroom. The little garden is pretty.

Staff was great, Courtney at the front desk was amazing and the food at the grill was great.

The hotel was clean & classy. I love the lobby and the cute porch. The restaurant on the 3rd floor was an added bonus! The server was so nice!

The one issue I had was that the bed was too soft for my back. I was unable to rest because the bed was so soft. I love the Spanish architecture and the beautiful courtyard.

EVERYTHING one would expect was present, but an exquisitely landscaped atrium was truly unexpected -- added beauty for all to enjoy.

Room updated, but too much noise from hall and the room above.

Very nicely updated motel. Beautiful Mission style architecture with central courtyard. Restaurant was good and the staff very friendly. Really beats anything in Santa Barbara or Ventura in this price range and is central between both.

Nice lobby, garden patio, and and comfortable room. Close enough to the village to walk. Friendly staff. Restaurant and bar on site.

This was a great place to stay. Well presented hotel with friendly helpful staff. Nice restaurant. Carpinteria is a lovely town. We would stay here again.

I was honestly so impressed it has such a pretty property and the cutest little restaurant with a great happy hour. The rooms are spacious and clean. Never met a staff member I didn’t love. So much attention to detail here

Hotel uses too much plastic!! Would be nice to use real forks and spoons rather than plastic everything.
