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

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
