We chose West Beach Inn because of its ocean view and reasonable (for Santa Barbara) rates. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Our view from our large balcony of the harbor and ocean was spectacular! The hotel is in easy walking distance to restaurants and other area attractions. I only wish we could have...

Wonderful location directly opposite the beach and yachts but also just a nice distance away from the jetty and the hustle and bustle. Walking distance to everything! Room was adquate although nothing special. Tea, coffee, fruit available all day in reception was brilliant! Self-serve included breakfast was great with good choice and lovely to sit beside the pool. 5pm biscuits,...

I really loved it here. From the location, to the relaxed vibe, to the clean & comfortable room, I was really impressed & would definitely return. We were fortunate to get a free upgrade to a more spacious room with a balcony overlooking the pool & Santa Barbara's beautiful coastline but we'd have been happy enough without that. The complimentary...

Thank you for your kind remarks! Guests do tend to mention our relaxed vibe - it's true, when you are on vacation we want you to be able to sit back, enjoy the property and surrounding areas and leave the housekeeping to us. Toma's, the restaurant you mentioned, is truly fantastic and we are thrilled that it is just steps...

Our stay at this hotel was fabulous. The rooms, gardens, pool and hotel are so clean and beautiful. They have a welcoming wine and cheese at 5:00 everyday by the pool. They have coffee, tea and water out all day for your convenience. The continental breakfast is very good. This hotel is conveniently located across from the beach and walking...

Lovely large room with view of the yachts. Able to do our laundry easily. Convenient having a free breakfast and an extra bonus of wine and cheese provided in the evenings. When I left something of value in the safe and phoned them they were very willing to post it to me at no charge. Also located next to the...

We spent one night here on a road trip around California - arrived via the road through Los Olivos and past Lake Cachuma on a beautiful day - so we were sold on Santa Barbara even before arriving! But the West Beach Inn was a real find and somewhere we would love to come back to on our next trip...

We stayed one night at this hotel and asked at the last minute if our son could join us. They were able to give us a room that had a small room off of it for him to sleep in. The bed was comfortable, the room large and very quiet. The next morning we woke and took a walk on...

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.
