Pleasant welcome by Christian, great morning welcome in the breakfast bar by Chris. Very pleasant staff! Building is a bit older but, they have Christian renovations to the bathroom in my room. Nice location across the street from the beach.

This hotel is by far the best value hotel with an ocean view in Santa Barbara. Its proximity to the beach, trails and bike paths make it an ideal location for a relaxing weekend or week-long vacation.

Arriving late into SB we were happy to be able to get a room at this hotel and how lucky were we!!! Our room was extremely clean and spacious and the decor really gave it a beachy and seaside feel! It's convenient location to State Street, the Pier, and the Marina was a plus for us since we wanted to... More

We stayed at the Best WesternBeachside Inn in October. Four nights. Reasonable price good location and very friendly and helpful staff. All engaged in their job which adds to a good atmosphere. If we come back to Santa Barbara we will choose the same hotel.

We thought we would pop over to Santa Barbara for some wine tasting. The rain was pouring down when we arrived on a Monday. The staff was cheery and the front desk clerk gave us a room with an ocean view. The continental breakfast was quite filling and a staff member noticed I was taking breakfast to the room and...

The BW Beachside starts with one of the best locations in Santa Barbara. A short walk from the wharf one direction and the marina the other. The staff is so very friendly and helpful. Also, this is a hotel that acts like a boutique, hot cookies in the lobby every afternoon. Fruit infused water all day, and a HOT breakfast... More

The seams of the couch in our room were coming apart. The bathroom was clean but super small. There wasn't a counter in the bathroom, just... More

Good place to travel and stay. Comfortable, clean and very friendly staff. Breakfast was actually eggs and toast etc. We have stayed in many places in Santa Barbara but we wanted to be close to the beachside.

Close to the beachside path for walking. Our kids rode their new "hoverboards" and we walked the dogs. The beach, pier and restaurants are all close. Also, the big park just across the street is pretty view from hotel room and nice place to spend time. We would have taken the nearby trolley, but pets were not allowed. We definitely... More

A basic, safe, clean hotel with friendly staff in amazing location. fantastic value. Traveled with a young child and puppy. Staff made it easy and very accommodating. Best part is you walk out the lobby door and you are looking at the beach
