Nice place but too hot Everything was fine, we always have a good experience with Holiday Inn - however it was a very warm day, the room was very warm, and it did not get cooled down until middle of the night. Why didn't the hotel staff turn on the air conditioner a couple of hours before our arrival?

Perfect Place to Stay The perfect experience from check-in to check-out. I took the train to Santa Barbara...It was a short walk to the Inn. Perfect. I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw the Inn. It was actually beautiful! It didn't look like the others around. It had a lot of character and the grounds were groomed ...

A real surprise! Although the hotel is older, the attitude of the staff was right on the money. When called to fix a sluggish toilet, staff was there almost before we hung up. We loved the breakfasts and the evening bar, both included in the price of the room. Would we book this hotel again? You bet.

Great for families visiting Santa Barbara! We really enjoyed staying at the Inn at East Beach for our short weekend trip. While we didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel since we were usually out during the day exploring Santa Barbara, we enjoyed the comfort of the hotel room when we returned to the hotel for the evening. The morning breakfast ...

Excellent Hotel just off the 101 The hotel was easy to find and had plenty of off road parking. We had a family room that was fine for 2 adults and 3 children. The room was clean, in good condition and comfortable. The breakfast was good. Our kids loved the pancake machine! There was a small shopping center just down the road. (But ...
