Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a fantastic location right on the harbor but within walking distance of State St and major shopping. The rooms are spacious. Be sure to pay extra for a harbor facing room with a huge balcony. The only negative is the size of the breakfast area. It is very small and...

This was the second time we visit Santa Barbara. It's a tourist town with a lot wealthy people live here - so hotels are expensive. It's conveniently located - a very pleasant short walk to Santa Barbara Pier. Hotel room were bit small but clean, our room was on second floor and outside the front door there were a row...

Excellent location and free parking right across from the beach. The rooms are small but very nicely furnished. They feature a free wine & cheese happy hour. Price is affordable compared to most of the other hotels in the area

If you're travelling by car along Highway 1 in search of a comfortable option to stop off in beautiful Santa Barbara, this hotel fits the bill. Parking is on-site and close to the accommodation. Our room was sufficiently large enough for two people to spread out and the bed was comfortable (I enjoyed a good night of sleep). I don't...

Came to Santa Barbara for a three night stay. I was all around impressed and very pleased with this motel. We arrived late in the evening, but check in was quick, friendlly and efficient. We had a third floor (there is an elevator) room with a balcony facing the harbor. The room was fairly large with a king bed, sofa,...

Just a wonderful hotel in a wonderful town and a perfect location facing the beach and sea and near the pier. Staff were super friendly as we're the residence of Santa Barbara the rooms are amazing as we're the facilities. Stay else where at your peril

My husband and I stayed at the West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara. From the moment we entered the lobby to check in we were very pleased. We were greeted warmly and given great info on locations of restaurants and places to see and also about the best way to get to the Courthouse where we were attending a wedding....

Location was great for walking to sites and restaurants along the harbor. It was a longer stroll to the shops on State Street but it was doable. The room was comfortable. Weather did not cooperate so we never used the pool or spa. We also skipped the breakfasts.

Thank you for your positive review - that was a true DOWNPOUR during your visit, wasn't it??!!! Santa Barbara desperately needs the rain, but sheesh! Still, I'm pleased that you enjoyed your room - our location can't be beat, we are Blessed, indeed! See you next time and will order sunshine for your stay. :)

We really liked this place: very quiet, tidy, swimming pool, jacuzzi but for the person who likes to eat proper breakfast (not only sweets) this is just not a right place. If you will go to eat between 7 and 9 do not expect any ham or cheese. They will bring it after 9. I have no idea why, but...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. We appreciate your positive comments and constructive feedback about our breakfast as we are constantly learning what our guests enjoy and trying to balance that with no kitchen facilities! Thankfully the sweets have been replaced with hard boiled eggs, yogurt/granola parfaits, toast and bagels with cream cheese...

The very helpful guy at the Santa Barbara Visitor Centre made several hotel suggestions, all of which were close together in the West Beach area. We liked the look of the West Beach Inn, close to the harbour, so we stopped in to check availability. We were offered two options, both of which were well in excess of the rate...
