The Holiday Inn Express® Santa Barbara is 100% committed to our guests and dedicated team members’ safety and well-being, and we’d like to share with you some of the best practices we have implemented with this commitment in mind.

Our hotel rigorously follows CDC, County, and State guidelines for combating the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Guests will find hand sanitizer readily available at our entrance and masks at the Front Desk.

Our entire hotel has undergone the Pure Maintenance® sterilization and disinfecting process, which prevents the possibility of any surface to human contact spread of viruses or harmful bacteria for up to at least 90 days following each application. Current Pure Maintenance® certifications are posted in the lobby.

Including the expanded IHG Way of Clean® program, our team members are trained extensively on the most current, proper procedures for cleaning and disinfecting all areas of the hotel, such as the guest rooms, common areas, and high-touch-point surfaces.

We’ve instituted guest-only access, which ceases public access and allows only our guests to enter the hotel with their keycards and team members.

New signage where applicable as well as floor markings at 6-foot increments in our lobby assist guests with navigating COVID-19 city-required guidelines during their stay.

Prior to starting each shift, we check each team member’s temperature and health; once cleared, all team members wear appropriate PPE equipment while working, and our Front Desk features a full glass protective barrier.

Please call should you have any questions about our cleaning practices. We look forward to welcoming you to Santa Barbara soon.
