Inn At East Beach
Ranked #32 of 52 Hotels in Santa Barbara
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We needed a somewhat-affordable stay near the beach and the Inn at East Beach did the job. Very close to the beach! Very clean.

The staff, including Frank who is advertised plenty on the website, were very friendly and accommodating. The King room was a good size for two people, had a separate toilet/shower from the double-sink area. Our only slight complaint was about the room occasionally getting too stuffy. There is an overhead fan and oscillating fan in the room, and yet at times during the day it felt a little hot. At night it cooled down sufficiently.

Finally, the continental breakfast was ample and tasty. I'd recommend the hotel to others.

And, as a total aside, If you are not from the U.S., you'll be in good company here! So many Europeans visit Santa Barbara during the summertime apparently!

This motel is quite ordinary and the price we paid would be high in other places but for Santa Barbara the price was reasonable. The motel is near the beach and about 30 mins walk to the centre. Apart from the bistro at the Hyatt opposite there are no restaurants very near the hotel. We had an excellent meal at Fishouse about 20 mins walk from the hotel.
The room we had was comfortable . The breakfast was ok if you like huge cakes but proper juice would have been appreciated.
We loved our stay in Santa Barbara and this motel is worth considering if you are visiting.

What a perfect place to stay for a summer getaway! Great location, wonderful service, with clean well-appointed rooms. Of course what makes it stand out is the wonderful hotel manager Frank. He couldn't have been more personable and helpful; he really went the extra mile to make sure everyone had a good experience. The only drawback was the noisy/squeaky gate by the pool, so I recommend asking for an upstairs room away from the pool.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel completely unplanned and just lucked out!
The room was fabulous,ample free parking and just a short skip across the road to the beautiful beach.
The reason that this hotel SHINES in our review and our hearts was the Hotel manager.
Everyday we arrived for our complimentary breakfast and He was there with the most welcoming smile and attitude.He was a pleasure and could not do enough for us.Recommending his favorite coffee and his homemade "Turtle Eggs".He would not let us leave hungry, and packed us up a napkin full of goodies if we were going to the beach.
Many large hotel chains could take a page out of his book to understand what a guest needs and the way to make it happen.
I can not say enough good things about this Hotel,from the great rates,comfy rooms,cute pool, and Wonderful staff.A+++ in my book! I will always stay here when in Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: Ask for a double with fireplace. nice and cosy.

Awesome little inn. Most def coming back. Not overpriced. Great spacious room. Silent. Windows left open to hear the breezed. Could not ask for a anything more. Oh yeah maybe air conditioning. Just in case in the future you find yourself with loud neighbors. But it was awesome they had a fan.
