"Holiday Inn...CLEAN, COMFORTABLE & GREAT LOCATION!"
Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express met all of our expectations. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. Staff was warm and informative. The location is excellent as we were able to walk to and from all the attrractions Downtown, including the Urban Wine Trail! All wineries/tasting rooms were easily reached via walking. We will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We were surprised when we checked in as we were expecting something different from a Holiday Inn Express but the hotel is decorate well, the room was comfortable and clean and the location is amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and unkempt"
The hotel is a converted old motel. the lobby is old and tacky. the bed was sooo uncomfortable my wife and i could barely sleep. The room was small and the bathroom fixtures were dated and old. There was someone's old used boxers left in our bedroom closet!! The location is great next to State Street but overall the hotel SUCKED!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is centrally located with a lot of great bars, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The parking is convenient and the breakfast in the morning is a good way to start the day. The hotel has two buildings. We had a room right next to the laundry room overlooking the street on the first floor of the adjacent building which was kind […] of a bummer. You could hear the thump of the washing machine and dryer with the cars driving by which put a damper on things. I'd recommend this hotel but make sure you have a nice room in a good location in the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Got stuck in the air going from Denver to Santa Barbara, no way to contact Expedia or Hotel. Plane returned to Denver, could not get into Santa Barbara until midnight next. Cancelled trip, missed wedding and was charged first night because I did not contact them. Sorry, phones weren't working at 25,000 feet or whatever.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location! Santa Barbara is amazing!"
This is a nice hotel with an excellent location within walking distance of shops and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
I lived in Santa Barbara for almost 30 years and was more than pleasantly surprised at this little gem right down town. My husband and I needed a place to stay for our son's wedding in Santa Barbara. I had reccommended it to a friend not long ago who wanted an affordable hotel within walking distance to downtown. I remembered passing it often and thought […] it looked nice. She told me that she enjoyed her stay there and would reccommed it to others. I was amazed at that price that there was a valet to park your car if you couldn't locate a parking space in the 2 lots provided - parking fee for not 1, but 2 cars was inexpensive. The room was clean, spacious, nicely appointed and supplied all one would need - from toiletries fo refridgerator. I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels around the world (as a travel agent and traveling for pleasure) and this hotel, though not in that league has nothing to be ashamed of. I would not only reccommend it to others, I most certainly would stay there again. From the front desk to house keeping and the valet everyone was very friendly and courteous. High marks all around. Thanks to the staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite Good for a HI - Express"
In general this is better than a typical Holiday Inn Express. That said, it's extremely expensive for a typical HI. I'm not blaming this on the hotel, they are pricing in their market. That's Santa Barbara-- a town full of mediocre hotels that are seriously over priced. If you like low quality, mundane, Spanish traditional decor for the price of a NYC […] chic boutique hotel than SB is your town. Rooms appear to be somewhat recently renovated, OK size but, not generous. Staff was very nice. Location is great if you want to be right of State Street which can be a noise problem but, we did not experience that. The elevator, however, is frighteningly loud - like a snooze alarm that never goes off. Do not get a room by the elevator. Rate included breakfast. Nice to run down & get a real cup of coffee (which was actually good) in lieu of the coffee maker taking up precious real estate on the bathroom vanity counter.

Not the best Holiday Inn experience, but for the location is a deal, although is excessively expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Friendly Service & Good Value"
Taking into account the class of hotel, it was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy, relaxing and convenient"
My experience at this hotel was wonderful. My family and I took a trip to Santa Barbara via Amtrak from Los Angeles. It was a great trip, very relaxing. The Holiday Inn Express was about 3 blocks from the train station located off of State St. When I checked in the staff was very helpful and courteous. The rooms were clean, the hotel is a bit older […] and is mission style but kept very nice. The location is central to the Wharf and shopping. We walked and rented bicycles to tour the city. State Street is a good place for shopping and eating. The continental breakfast was very good and very convenient when you have two young kids. I was very satisfied with this pick and would definitely return, Thank you Holiday Inn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but comfortable"
The Holiday Inn bring what you tend to expect from the Hoiday Inn. The renovation to the property dresses it up and makes the overall feel more comfortable. The rooms are small but offer all the needs. If your traveling with children the room will close in on you QUICK! The location is excellent especially if you're a shopper. Expect to pay for parking […] (approx. $10 plus tip with valet). The breakfast is the standard Holiday Inn continental breakfast. I recommend you grab a cup of coffee and walk to one of the nearby breakfast restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best thing is the location"
The location is the best. And the breakfast is very nice, considering it's free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"EXCELLENT LOCATION - 1/2 BLOCK TO STATE STREET - WE'LL BE BACK!"
This hotel is the perfect location for a short 1/2 block walk to the great shopping and fine restaurants along State Street. A shuttle can also take you up and down State Street if you prefer. Small sized room for a big king bed, but it was very comfy (and some smaller hotels in the same area don't even offer kings). Hotel is older ("historic") but […] well maintained. A little traffic noisy through the night if your window opens to Haley Street. Front desk staff and maid service staff were always pleasant and very helpful. Nice breakfast included, too! We've stayed here before and we will certainly stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Virginia-Holiday Inn Express"
This hotel is a beautiful, historic landmark located half a block away from State Street. It's location is incredible. The hotel itself is very clean and aesthetically pleasing. The only problem I had was finding the hotel. The hotel is also named Hotel Virginia, and that sign is very distinguishable. However the Holiday Inn Express sign is not so distinct. […] Just look for the Hotel Virginia sign. Also, there is an architectural marvel of a building located behind the parking lot. It is a very tall and slender building that is reminiscent of the work of Antoni Gaudí. I would recommend checking this place out. The history and info of the building is documented on tiles built into the wall next to the building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location, Clean"
The hotel was in great location. Easy to walk to shops, bars and eateries. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We got a great nightlife suggestion from the door man. The room was very clean and super comfortable. We didn't experience any noise problems. We were located on the 3rd floor. There was not an elevator from the first floor, […] we had to use the stairs. Parking was $9.00/per night which wasn't bad @ all. I'd highly recommend this hotel and the next time I visit SB, I'd stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express - Santa Barbara"
Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Noise does travel in from outside of the room; this was not really a problem. More of a muffled sound. Other than that I would recommend this hotel. Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yes would definately recommend"
Exactly what we expected request a non ground floor for noise, It was perfect clean , friendly, location could not have been more perfect. CLose to beach, pier, state street, shops dining clubs, bars everything walking distance no need for a car. Will definately stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but room can be noisy"
We stayed on the first floor, right off the parking lot. The walls in this hotel (at least on the first floor) are paper thin. We could hear people coming and going down the hall all night long. Also, this place seems popular with school groups and teenagers are not well known for their courtesy toward others. This, coupled with the paper thin walls, […] made for a VERY long night. Can't blame the hotel too much, though, since they didn't birth the teenage visitors. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was super clean and so close to State Street. I was traveling on foot so it was great to be able to get to restaurants and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We would stay again.."
But not one the ground floor. Room was very small and noise from the street and adjacent rooms was horrible. It was New Years but at anytime it would be noisy. We got zero sleep. They moved us to 3rd floor the next night and we were 100% satisfied. Wonderful room and quiet quiet quiet. Complementary breakfast very nice. Fantastic location (not beach […] but right where everything is happening). Short walk to theaters and great restaurants. Staff great, clean facility and very attractive building. Just don't stay downstairs on street side. We would definitely stay again. Great value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express-The Virginia Hotel"
From the memories of what this hotel looked like on the inside back in 1996-1997, I was quite amazed at the difference. The hotel now holds the antique charm that it was meant to have, and the rooms are most definitely more cozy. Everything was as expected and so much more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good v alue nice staff"
This hotel was very handy and the staff were good. The only issue was really how dark the bedroom was - not enough lighting, like living in a cave!! But that said if the rate is right I would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Near all the bars & restaurants & walking distance to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very comfortable hotel"
The location of the hotel was good for us as it was close to the centre of the town. Car parking was close by and hassle free. The room and breakfast, etc. were of a standard that we expected, so no disappointments. Although the hotel is part of a chain the staff offered a friendly welcome and all our requests were attended to promptly and in a helpful […] manner. If we went to Santa Barbara again we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A stones throw from the mai street and pier. The room was good value for what you got and its location. Its not 5 star, but we just wanted a place to sleep and this was reasonably priced and vry convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Holiday Inn Express, Santa Barbara"
This was the worst accommodation that we stayed in during a month long visit to USA and Canada also the most expensive, including a couple of 5 star hotels. Rooms desperate for refurbishment, plaster and paint peeling from the wall in one place, bathroom fan was very noisy which came on with the light switch. This was disabled not fixed, not a pleasant […] solution. Glasses were not replenished on a daily basis also coffee jug missing and never replaced. Best of all we found moldy bagels at breakfast.

"Centralt Santa Barbara"
Hotellet ligger centralt i Santa Barbara nära restauranger och affärer, till stranden är det en ca 10 min promenad. Rummet var ganska litet men det är ju inte på rummet man är! Rent och allt fungerade. En enkel frukost ingick och tipset är att gå upp en våning (2) där det finns en stor terass och äta frukosten där :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Das hotel ist perfekt gelegen, an der ecke zur statestreet. Die zimmer sind nicht gerade schön, aber gross und sauber.

"Sentralt og bra"
Vi var fire i følge som delte to dobbeltrom (to queensize-senger pr rom) over fem netter i påska 2013. VI var særdeles tilfreds med beliggenheten siden hotellet bare ligger et steinkast fra hovedgata State Street og også kun i kort avstand fra stranda. Vi opplevde å få svært god service av hotellet, også ved endring av bestillingen. Rommene er praktiske […] og velutstyrte. Frokosten var enkel, men grei. Skulle vi peke på noe, måtte det være en litt dårlig trådløs forbindelse i hotellrommene. Tjenesten var for øvrig gratis - det er ingen selvfølge i USA. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fique atendo no Check-in"
O hotel é muito bem localizado, próximo dos pontos mais importantes de Santa Barbara, possui um bom café da manhã. Porem eu havia reservado um quarto com cama King e me colocaram em um quarto muito pequeno com cama convencional. O quarto era adaptado para cadeirantes, o que era muito desconfortável para utilização do banheiro adaptado. No momento do […] Check-in o funcionário deveria ter maior atenção aos dados da reserva e deveria ter me alertado que o quarto era adaptado. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Une bonne adresse"
Hôtel d'un très bon niveau doté d'une literie particulièrement appréciable. Il est présente un positionnement agréable à quelques minutes à pied de la mer et proche du centre ville. Petit bémol: le parking est payant (9 $) et l'absence de piscine (l'océan est frais à Santa Barbara, moins de 20°).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
