The Best Western Beachside Inn in Santa Barbara, is a great value for the area. It's centrally located, perfectly near the beach and downtown. Everything you want out of your SB experience is just a stone's throw away. Foodies, and party-goers would be pleased with the proximity to the "funk zone." The hotel itself was clean and exactly what we... More

I guess $370 ex tax for a motel room with 2 queen beds close to the beach and walking distance to State Street on a Friday night is maybe par for the course in Santa Barbara, but I was a bit shocked at the price. Nice little pool and free parking but it is just a standard motel with little... More

Santa Barbara can be so booked up on weekends, for no particular reason. And it is hard to know what of the mid-priced hotels to trust if you're new to the area. This hotel is clean, well-located to walk all over, including the Harbor, Stearns Wharf and to easily get to State Street for all of the action. The Harbor... More

Perfect location across from beach and walking to harbor. Prices were very reasonable for summer time compared to others in same vicinity. Staff was great, very accommodating and rooms large and updated. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for two nights during a ten day trip of the west coast. I cannot fault this hotel at all and was my favourite place to stay out of the five we stayed in. Location is spot on being just a short walk to the wharf,harbour and state street and just across the road from the beach. Our... More

We had a great view from our room. We were facing Cabrillo Drive and our view was of the marina. We had a 3 to 4 block walk to Stearns Wharf. We also had a balcony on the 2nd floor which was absolutely great to sit outside and enjoy the view of the marina and ocean. Would stay again if... More

Hi Jan, Location and views...Just check out the TA photos..Obviously you paid few dollars more for that view and balcony, but come try out some of our less expensive rooms with our pool views, after all your not in Santa Barbara to sit in your hotel room all day and stare outside :) See you soon!

Wasn't expecting much from my first stay at a Best Western. The hotel is in a great location next to the sea, parking was super cheap and they have a great little pool as well. The room was very clean and neat with nice shuttered windows which were spotless. The room was quiet and can't pick a fault with it.... More
