Cute, clean cottages around a darling courtyard, and the location couldn't be better--withing walking distance of State Street shops as well as the waterfront. Also just a quick drive to the dog-friendly beach. The two women who checked us in and out were extremely friendly and made us (two humans and a dog) feel right at home. We knew as... More

Adorable little place, 2 blocks from the beach and from the center of town. Nothing fancy, but clean, friendly and they allow dogs! Nice kitchenette's that would make it a great place for an extended stay.

My husband and I "stumbled" onto this place by just driving around looking for a place to stay. What a terrific find!!! The best place we stayed during our whole CA vacation. Friendly, totally cute, clean, and helpful regarding what to do and where to eat. We stayed in a large room with a king size bed, a full kitchen,... More

Dog & human friendly staff. Cute rooms, each includes a quaint kitchenette w. pots/pans, kinves/forks ect included. Also a small (gas/electrict, idk) fireplace. The grounds are small yet very cozy. Common area is a comfortable spot to relax for ppl & dogs alike. Beach is a short 2 block walk. State street shopping & restaurants are a short 5 minute... More

We spent the Memorial weekend here. The Beach House Inn is lovely and so are the people who run it. The accommodation was roomy, well equiped and maintained. The little touches like coffee in the morning and a lending library of books and DVD's were nice touches. The accommodation is also dog friendly and our dog was also made to... More

Two humans and two canines thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Beach House Inn. The property is small but very well maintained and located in a cute neighborhood close to the beach. The staff and guests were very friendly; everyone wore smiles--and who wouldn't with such a lovely setting! The location is within walking distance to the beach. Although several... More

My wife & I were spending an extended time (seven weeks) in Santa Barbara in February and March and this was a great place for us. Good location, great amenities, very friendly staff. We rented one of the one bedroom apartments, and were so comfortable we extended our stay an additional week. We'll stay here again.

We stayed August 2014. The property is in a great location, on a quiet street near the beach. The staff was warm, friendly, and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and if we didn't know it was a pet friendly hotel, we wouldn't have been able to tell. The best part of all was the QUIET. We stayed in the... More

When we arrived we were greeted very warmly and treated like family! We had the only unit that didn't have a kitchen but a great comfortable bed, fireplace and place to sit and sip wine while relaxing after dinner. This inn is extremely cozy and affordable for the Santa Barbara area. It is centrally located and within walking distance to... More
