Local Restaurants are seating guests and some area attractions are open. Check with each one for specific availability. At the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Carpinteria we are continuing COVID-19 protocols in an attempt to continue to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus which is much lower now, according to Santa Barbara County Health Department and CDC officials. We do additional cleaning and sanitizing, and disinfection. Our staff wears face coverings and practices social distancing. Everyone at the hotel is required to wear a face covering in public spaces. Service to rooms is limited and breakfast has been modified by County Health Department orders. Between guests, our rooms are disinfected with Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers and FDA Approved disinfectant agents. We appreciate guests' continued understanding due to operational constraints and that hotel check-in may be delayed due to the additional time required for deeper cleaning and sanitizing of our guest rooms. Likewise, we may not be able to honor requests for late check-out in order to give staff the time they need to prepare for the next guest. Guests are expected to do their part to help limit the spread of the virus by wearing face coverings, maintaining social distance, using supplied sanitization stations, or delaying their visit if they are not feeling well. Thank you from the staff at Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Carpinteria.
