The location was great for us- just off the 101 when we had finished driving the PCH on the way from San Francisco to LA. The hotel was nicely decorated, clean and in good shape on the inside. We were happy to have one of the few 1st floor rooms with a small outside patio and put our dinner leftovers... More

The staff made all the difference in the world during our stay. My husband has cancer and a short time left to live, and going back to Santa Barbara one more time was his last bucket wish. The front desk did everything under the sun to make our stay the very best, Chris in the breakfast area was so cheerful... More

We hadn't booked before making our way Santa Barbara. When we got here the lady was really helpful and in the 5minutes between us enquiring and coming back to book the room, the kind we wanted was gone! They go so quick! Luckily she was kind enough to do a discount on the next room up for us. All the... More

We loved being able to bring our dog, and he loved his little patio off the side of the room, overlooking the park. The best were comfy, and the room was spacious. The location is great, walking distance from anything we wanted. We'll definitely be back!

Great location, nice people, committed to guest comforts, very clean, convenient parking, parking cost only $3.00 per night, you can walk to the beach across the street and to the two piers and the week end art vendors (must be a hundred of them) nice stuff.

great location right on the sea front.not to far from main shopping area and places to eat. the rooms are clean and beds are comfy and tv is a good size. internet connection is poor.noise can sometimes be a problem as walls are quite thin.

Quaint hotel across the road from the marina. Bit dated but just what we wanted en route up Pacific Highway. My husband had stayed there 30 years ago while working in Santa Barbara hence the reason for staying there! Staff excellent, very friendly and helpful.

This Best Western is a somewhat dated in its room décor, but it was immaculate and clean. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. The breakfast room was small but the food was very good. The great thing about this hotel is its location. A short walk across the street puts you at the marina and harbor. A short walk... More

We stayed at the best western beachside inn, while in Santa Barbara for work and it provided a clean and comfortable stay. Muhammad at the front desk was great and very friendly. We had a nice room with a small balcony - nothing fancy but very comfortable. There is free internet provided, plus a free breakfast in the lobby. The... More

Very nice and clean property and close to the marina and beach. The room was clean and bright and had good beds and towels. This property is located right across from the beach and city pool. Will stay here on our next trip to Santa Barbara.
