We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel and found it adequate but not exceptional. The staff was VERY courteous and helpful. However, we found the room noisy. We were on the 2nd floor and since most guests used the outdoor staircase, which is concrete as well as the outdoor walkway, we were disturbed many times by people climbing the...

I usually stay next door at the Beachside but not any more after a less-than stellar experience. The staff here went out of their way to make things easier for me, upgrading me so I wouldn't have to change rooms during a last minute booking. Harbor view is well worth it, best choice, high floor. Very comfortable for the price...

We have stayed here for many trips and have always found it to be comfortable, clean, nice amenities and a great location. We enjoy their breakfast service, 24 hour coffee and wine and cheese in the evenings. The pool is small but very nice as well.

This was a very nice hotel that was clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Upon checking in, the gentleman that greeted us gave us all the information about the continental breakfast, the daily wine and cheese party held poolside, and the free trolley service to State Street, which is the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. In...

We only stayed 1 night. The room was very spacious and comfortable although the bathroom was a bit on the small side. Plenty room for a family of 4 and a nice front facing balcony albeit not a great view really since the street is between the hotel and harbour. The pool area was pretty small but very nice, with...

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...
