This hotel has gone through a very nice modern renovation. You will notice it as soon as you walk into the lobby. It really sets the tone for a great stay in a wonderful city. The location is perfect for cruising the beaches and spending time in the Funk Zone. Our room was on the bottom floor and the nation... More

We stayed at the West Beach Inn this past weekend for a family Bat Mitzvah in Santa Barbara. I had originally booked a garden view w/queen bed room. Then upgraded to the king room with wharf view, but on January 26th decided to change the reservation back to my original choice of the queen bed with garden view. I received... More

Lovely rooms well furnished. Our room had garden view with table and chairs. Excellent breakfast and bonus cheese and wine early evening. It is in an excellent position overlooking beach and marina. A short walk takes you to State Street which is full of quirky shops and varied restaurants. The gardens and pool were very well kept and quite delightful.... More

We stopped here on our way through from San Francisco to Santa Monica. Great little place on the waterfront near the pier and marina. Rooms are good size and bed was comfortable. Complementary wine and cheese each night was a bonus and breakfast also. Pool and Spa here, great to wind down in after a long day driving. Close to... More

A fantastic location on the water just a few blocks from State St. When we checked in, we were pretty disappointed with the size of the room, very small, too small for 2 people. We requested a larger room for our next 2 nights, and got a great room overlooking the harbor with a good size balcony...well worth the upgrade... More

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely hotel. Our room 219 was very spacious and clean. The large closet with sliding doors and full panel mirrors was very handy. Wish there had been a vanity and outlets outside of the bathroom, though. There was certainly enough room for this. The bathroom was kind of small, but very attractive with a... More

This was our third stay at West Beach Inn and, as before, we had a King room with a balcony overlooking the harbor. The location is great -- an easy walk to Stearn's Wharf and the Harbor area, as well as to Toma, the #1 restaurant in Santa Barbara. There is a nice heated pool and a spa and everything... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Right next to the beach and everything I wanted to get to. Was nice to have some breakfast and happy hour services to make the stay even easier. My room seemed like it might be noisy given its location but I turned the fan on and didn't hear a thing. Perfect and the price was... More

When we are in Santa Barbara we always stay here. It is a beautiful view and the pool is nice and so is the hot tub.. We swam each day. Easy walk to the board walk.. Easy to catch the trolly downtown.. Take it all the way to the top and walk back. The hotel is clean and they have... More

Great location essentially at the Beach and walking distance to both Wharfs and State Street. We had the 2-bedroom patio suite which is a nice option for traveling families, but not representative for the average room I'd assume. The Patio Suite was nice, including 2 beautiful bathrooms. The pool is not too glamorous but nice. Breakfast is average, nightly wine... More
