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

Really cosy small Inn/hotel excellently located for central Santa Barbara and with very personal and friendly service. Rooms are basic and everything is in order; e.g. clean, nice beds, good small kitchen and ok bathrooms, This is not luxury - focus in on cosyness, excellent location and quiet rooms and a quiet patio/small garden (with a very nice and kind...

Previously stayed and the staff were GREAT! This time NOT so much. The greeter seemed short and unfriendly, had on a t-shirt indicating perhaps a replacement company fill in for owner. The room although clean, and comfortably furnished, was FREEZING and the fireplace did not work (which we didn't know until after hours). They have a huge list of how... More

We could not have been more pleased. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. So clean and lovely decor and most important, perfect for our dogs. Someone has taken great pride in keeping the Inn immaculate and even provide a clean sheet to put on top of the bed for the dogs to sleep on. Ample parking... More

We came across this hotel as we were travelling up Hwy 1, and were recommended this hotel by the lady at the Santa Barbara information centre. If we had more time we would have stayed here for longer; what a fabulous little hotel. Sandra, the host was great and very helpful pointing out a really nice place to eat just... More

We stayed in the Cozy King room with our dog. The room was perfect for a 2 night stay. The room offered a comfortable bed, two leather chairs with ottomans for reading and a cute table and chairs for 2 in front of the front window. The walk in shower was great and there was plenty of storage space in... More

For the last 3 years, my husband, dog and I have been coming to this little gem for Thanksgiving. It is centrally located (about 3 blocks from the beach), in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The rooms are large with a comfortable bed and a fireplace that is perfect for those early mornings and late evenings. The small kitchen is well... More
