I took my son and granddaughters to Santa Barbara and once again the West Beach Inn was our "go to" hotel. The girls, 14 & 10, loved the pool and easy access to the beach right across the street. The trolley stops right in front of the inn which was great to get to the zoo and downtown and costs...

We stayed at the West beach in June 2014 and really liked it. The location is great, really close to some good bars and within walking distance of the centre. We were able to park easily in the car park and check in was quick and smooth. The reception is small and there is a pool which we didn't get...

We booked this hotel through Expedia several months ago. This hotel has a good location, within walking distance of the pier and downtown, but it is an older hotel with very small bathrooms. It may be my own responsibility, but when we checked in and I realized the age of the hotel, I went online to find out what the...

Hello and thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. The two rooms you booked were Harbor View rooms with private balconies and two queen beds in each, the rate you saw online upon your arrival was our starting rate for a smaller room with one bed which would not have accommodated your party. Unfortunately Expedia does...

This was a wonderful setting (the gardens smell amazing and you are a stones throw from the beach!). The rooms are fresh and clean. The beds are extremely comfy. The front desk staff is extremely nice. The pool and jaccuzzi are perfect. The location is great and everything is very walkable (one site parking is free! so just leave you...

Our extended family stayed at the West Beach Inn last week. When the manager saw we had several families coming they upgraded us to a three bedroom Master Suite. All I can say is WOW! Besides the 3 large bedrooms & 2 baths there was a huge living room that easily fit our group of 16. The Kitchen was also...

The location was simply excellent. Santa Barbara is a wonderful community to get away for the weekend. The beach is protected, the shops are extensive, and there are many wonderful restaurants. The hotel has been updated and the rooms are nice. the pool / hot tub are a wonderful sanctuary. Highly recommended.

We decided to stay here based on the excellent reviews and we're glad we did! The hotel is really a chic motel that has been modernized with Mad Men undertones. Our room was spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had some issues with our original room which were promptly addressed by the very helpful front desk....

A comfortable 2&3 story hotel right across from the beach, bike path, and a walk to State Street shops. Some rooms have water views, others enter from the courtyard and pool. Breakfast in the lobby won't fill you up, but afternoon wine and cheese are a nice offering if you aren't out enjoying all that Santa Barbara has to offer....

The location, room and staff was excellent. We had a room facing the harbor and we really enjoyed our stay here. Big plus that they offer free continental breakfast, wine and cheese hour as well as free parking. The hotel is also located right next to Toma Restaurant & Bar which is a great restaurant.
