          All staff and rooms excellent, breakfast tops! Located at the beach and across from the Marina and a walk to main State Street and the famous Stern pier! Restaurants close, great for walks and bike ride and a short walk to the train station!

          When anywhere near Santa Barbara, the Beachside Inn comes into our minds. We were at the Harris Ranch heading home and cut across to the beach to stay at the Beachside Inn. Definitely a delightful experience.

          we booked a room thinking the place was pet friendly but when we arrived, we were told no pets. The web site says pet friendly but we had a bad experience here, being turned away with our poodle. We are going back to Santa Barbara and as we are BW rewards members we prefer to stay in BWs, but we are very confused by the mixed messages at this hotel
