We always stay here when we are in Santa Barbara. It has been getting a little dated, but they are making some improvements. YAY We were not able to use the pool and hot tub this time, so we were a little disappointed, but it is fixed by now. They did a resurface of the cement and it looks very...

The location next to beach was perfect. The motel had very nice large with rooms, but the bathrooms were slightly small. The shower was great! The beds, pillows and linens were lovely. The room had every possible amenity you could image. We had a first floor room with a sliding door and patio area with landscaping. The rooms on the...

This hotel is a real find. There is ample parking and it's easy to find. We had an excellent view of the beach from our second floor room. The pool is small but heated, and there is a hot tub -- we didn't actually use this, but people appeared to be enjoying it. It's really the location that is the...

Because the manager, Patricia is one of the rudest people I've ever dealt with. Booking.com recommended this hotel, I was looking for peace and quiet to work on my writing. The first night was nothing outstanding, the beds are too firm and I was next to a parking lot so lots of in and outs but nothing that would encourage...

I apologize that your stay was less than expected and that there were some communication problems at the Front Desk. It's a shame that you didn't chose to be upgraded to a room in a different location as was offered. I hope that you were able to verify that your Credit Card had not been charged for your room as...

Whoever writes bad reviews about this place is crazy. For the money you pay and the location, this place is perfect! clean rooms, remodeled modern look & close to beach & State st.

Had a room on the ground floor and was truly impressed by the size, cleanliness and modern amenities in the room. The rooms are comparable to a 5 star. Parking is available on the property but sometimes if you come very late at night you might not find a spot in the parking lot. However plenty of street parking available...

Our family of four had a last minute overnight stay in SB on 12/30. We walked in to the lobby and were impressed with the overall look of the place.

We were particularly pleased in every way with the West Beach Inn. One of the reasons we chose the West Beach Inn is that it is a 10 minute walk from the train station in which we came, directly across from the marina and beach, a short walk to the pier, AND within a 20 minute walk of the downtown...

We didn't stay in Santa Barbara long, and the West Beach Inn fit our needs. It was close to the water, within walking distance of State Street (the city's main drag) and clean and comfortable. The price was a little high for what is essentially an updated motel with a fairly small room, but the fact that it was the...
