Our stay was fine. The office chair bent too far back and the bed was too soft. However, we were VERY appreciative that there was such a wide variety of food with O-U kashrut available at breakfast. OK

This was an average motel, not much more than a Motel 6 except for the Breakfast. The breakfast was great. I had trouble with the internet and heating cooling system. I asked for someone to come fix the temperature the next morning after, they told me it was regulated at the office but I guess forgot to fix it there.

My girlfriend and I came for a stand up paddle race in Santa Barbara. We stayed at the Best Western Beachside Inn. It is right across from the SB Harbor. We were able to walk over with our boards & paddle-so accessible. The staff Janice & Nick went out of their way to help us during our stay. They provided... More

Nice room overall, decent breakfast, but microwave oven and tub stopper were broken. Staff overall was nice. Good location, near the harbor and juat a short walk to Stearns Wharf and State Street. The internet was OK to connect to, but seemed slow. Worked OK at first, but later in the evening I tried to watch a streamed TV show.... More

We had an exceptional time staying here. We had trouble with our keys working on our room and the staff went out of their way to compensate our troubles. The manager,Harvey as well as his employees, Janice, Maynor, and Nick were absolutely wonderful to me and my family. By far the best hotel experience we ever had!! Very much recommend... More

We picked this place due to its proximity to the Wharf. Plus, the advertised "harbor view" got me. Well, the harbor view was obstructed partially by trees and the traffic noise-ugh! Also, noisy hallways as we could hear every footstep. I read about these problems in the reviews, but had hoped for a better experience. Older place that has been... More

Great front desk help. I loved my harbor-side room and balcony. The front desk person upgraded the rooms for my coworker and myself to the harbor-side. The breakfast was decent for a continental breakfast. The staff in the breakfast area were very helpful. The rooms were spacious. The bed was super comfortable. Overall, a great Best Western!

Very cute small hotel right on Cabrillo Blvd across from the marina. Walking distance to peer and public transportation to go up State St and into down town Santa Barbabra. Yummy complimentary breakfast with a marina view. I stayed in a marina view room with a lovely balcony. Good value for Santa Barbara.

incredibly friendly staff...amazing customer service! And hot breakfast! They helped me with business items like faxing and even gave me white out to fix an error on a document! It was quiet and really close to the harbor and walking distance from Santa Barbara City College.
