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...

During the rain, we stayed in Santa Barbara at the West Beach. The gardens and grounds were beautiful. The hotel staff was very informative of areas prone to mudslides and helped us find ways to see the sights despite the weather. Both the complimentary breakfast and evening wine & cheese were well appreciated. Our corner room was bright and welcoming....

Thank you for your review! Ugh, the rain... but we need it so badly with our ongoing drought. I'm glad the staff was able to steer you around and that you were able to still enjoy our slice of Paradise. Hopefully we will see you next time!

I arrived in the early evening to check in at West Beach Inn. Even in the dark I was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful the grounds were. I originally booked a single queen room but wavered on weather I would prefer a double queen room. The gentlemen was very accommodating and offered to show me the two rooms so I...

We traveled with our 8 month old and originally we had a queen over the garden, but there was no was his playpen would have for in there, so we upgraded to a king and it was awesome.

Hi! I can't wait to pass your positive comments along in our next staff meeting - it is what they look forward to most and thrive off of the feedback. We all enjoyed cooing over your beautiful baby, too. ♥ Thank you for your kind comments.

The room was spacious, well lighted and clean. The beds were comfortable. Wifi was easy to get on to. Coffee and cosmetic products were available. My husband and I were stunned at the huge problem SB has with homeless people. They are on every corner. I grew up in SB and this wasn't an issue even 10 years ago.

We are always glad to hear from our guests - we have the best beds!!! Yes, the homeless issue in town is a sensitive one, but one that I know our leaders are continually attempting to address. We enjoyed hosting you and look forward to seeing you again soon. ♥

We truly enjoyed our stay at the West Beach Inn. Our room was spacious and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We found the very large spa/hot tub very relaxing after a long drive. We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

I'm soooo happy that I chose the West Beach Inn! The staff was very nice. The room was spotless. Nice wine & cheese in evening, but I was very happy with the continental breakfast. The only drawback is the noise from the road, but with earplugs I was golden. Several hotels in the area are under construction or next to...
