My fiancé and I stayed here for four days in March, and I was very happy with our choice. We were just around the corner from the beach (no beach views, but I'd rather have a short walk over to the beach than stand in my room looking out the window!), and the location was quiet and peaceful. The Inn...

We stayed at the Inn at East Beach for a short two night stay in February of 2017. The Inn is tucked behind the Hyatt which faces the famous Shoreline of Santa Barbera. We decided to choose this hotel because of the Price and proximity to everything along the shore and state street. We were able to walk to the...

It's a cool little spot, but those who are used to AC, beware, haha. (That's typical of many Californian homes and hotels apparently though) The breakfast was your typical continental style breakfast, but it's one meal you don't have to buy - so it makes it feel worth it and like you are getting more bang for your buck. We...

This is a nice motel/hotel. The owner is a lovely man who obviously takes pride in his place. The location is convenient to the beach, parking is easy and access to the room is good. The decor is calm and pretty, with lovely touches that make you realize it is a loved place of business. Everything always seemed cleaned, and...

Park City, Utah
Reviewed 19 January 2017

The location is one block away from the beach, no beach view. Perhaps the upper story (2nd) have a slight view of water, not sure. The lower rooms by the pool have no view and I had little sense of being near a beach since that street is full of buildings. You need to walk maybe five minutes around the...

Our room was quiet comfortable and near the Beach and restaurants. It was very reasonably priced and had a comfortable bed and bathroom amenities. The parking was free and the rooms located behind locked gates for security. there was a pool available and the grounds and rooms well maintained. If you have any mobility issues this may not be the...

Someone like me who travels for about 2-3 months in a year, I find most the hotels of a certain standard give almost the same experience. And most the time difference between good and a great stay is the service that you get. This hotel/motel most definitely wins your heart with the service. Komal, the young, chirpy girl at the...

The rooms and the grounds were good - but what made our stay awesome was the staff. The gentleman who checked us in, the woman on staff when we left, and Frank the general manager were all so friendly and competent and really made sure we were comfortable and happy. Thank you!

This inn was absolutely perfect, especially because of the innkeeper Frank (and his wife Linda). We traveled from LA to SB for an overnight and could not have been more welcome during our stay. The inn itself was a block from the ocean, it was clean, there was continental breakfast, you could rent bikes on site (10$ an hour or...

Lower your expectations and you will not be disappointed. The check in girl is positively delightful and the location is great. The room is a CA1960's apartment minus the green shag rug that had been replaced with indoor/outdoor carpeting. The breakfast pastries are very good and the rooms are spacious.
