I visit Santa Barbara a couple of times a year and have stayed at a few hotels in this price range. Nothing compares to the West Beach Inn. Was renovated a few years back, is very tidy, and the hotel staff is always welcoming and responsive. A good value in SB.

I must start by saying that Santa Barbara is a really expensive city (higher than SF), so it was extremely difficult to find a hotel very close to the beach for a decent price. My AAA discount made this a reasonable price, compared to others in the neighborhood. I have conflicting feelings about this property- the bedroom area was large,...

I am very picky about my hotels,but not OCD or anal about tile. When I go to an oceanfront property, I want an oceanfront room. These rooms are good size, clean, soundproof, with very comfy and clean beds. The big balcony overlooks the marina and beach. It also overlooks the street which is busy and noisy in the morning if...

I loved everything about this hotel. It's small, across the street from the beach, wonderful staff and nice rooms. From the minute we checked in, I felt I was in paradise. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean, nice and got all the amenities I need. Perfect location and peaceful. I loved the added bonus of...

The motel is in a great location--across from the beach and near the harbor. The rooms appeared to be recently renovated, except for the tile around the tub in the bathrooms. Our room was tiny and cramped however the biggest problem was discovering the bed sheets were crusty, stained and unclean. I discovered this in the middle of our first...

The patio outside the room and seating was lovely and the pool very small but very well kept. The staff are fantastic and the location across from the West beach...

Hotel was very clean (except the window frames/sills). A lot of attention paid to very small details in terms of exterior appearances. The staff were amazing. I had a "Garden Room" on the 2nd Floor.

We stayed there on a Friday night (one night only - no 2 night min. like others) and loved it. It was far nicer than a usual "mote"l with lots of extra touches usually found in a more upscale resort.
