This is a nice family hotel. It is called "Beach House", but it is a few block away from the beach. We stayed in July, it was about +30C and we were scared that there is no AC in the room. However, they have fans and temperature goes down at night, so it was not that bad. Our room had... More

My husband and our bichon frise recently spent four relaxing nights at the Beach House Inn. The large room was very clean and we had a well equipped kitchen - including a doggie dish. The flowers and multicolored Adirondack chairs gave the grounds a cheerful tone. You could enjoy sitting in the garden outside the room to see and hear... More

Easy last minute online res for a recent stop over during the height of SB Summer Tourist season with Dog in tow. Friendly Staff, basic but comfortable accommodations close to State and EZ access to all the action. I loved the pristine 40's pink Bathroom and the small patio.

Beach House Inn is a great find for those who travel with their dogs and for those who are looking for a more relaxed, casual environment. Their friendly staff was eager to help with dog friendly restaurant ideas. The room was large with a fireplace and kitchen. There is no breakfast included in the price, but they do offer free...

The Beach House Inn has a lot going for it; friendly staff, excellent walking location close to the waterfront, the train station, and downtown but our stay was marred by rooms that could not cool off. With temperatures only in the upper seventies, windows wide open, door open, and the provided fans going, neither of the two rooms we stayed... More

I was pleasantly surprised. The Beach House Inn is a dog friendly property that is VERY clean too. I didn't think that was possible. When I first walked into our room I expected the typical "dog smell" but instead found it to be odor free and spotless to boot. Believe me - I looked closely and found nothing to complain... More

We stayed here for one night with our dog. Staff was friendly and helpful when we checked in. Our room was really big, it had a fireplace and kitchen/dining area. I wish we would've made more use of it, but we only stayed one night. The beach is a couple blocks away, but we ended up driving every where anyway.... More

We stayed at this little gem in SB with our dogs and loved it. Very clean and cozy, and all the rooms have kitchenettes. It's located in an adorable little neighborhood just two blocks from the beach and shopping district. We stayed 3 nights and didn't need to get in the car to drive once. And when we checked in,...

Finally getting around to a review after the 3rd visit to Beach House. I travel from Seattle to Phoenix once a year with my 3-year-old lab, and always make Santa Barbara an overnight stay because of the Beach House Inn. Rooms are always clean, spacious and comfortable. There is a dedicated and very private, secure parking lot behind the hotel,... More

Spent the weekend at the beach house inn with my sister and our doggies for a girls weekend getaway. It was perfect. From the moment we checked in till the moment we left Pam and her daughter made us feel right at home. The grounds were well kept and very quaint. Pam directed us to various places that were dog...
