My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It was much nicer than expected. We had a partial ocean view from our room. The rooms were nicely upgraded and the large walk in closet area was great. We were able to keep our suitcases in the closet to avoid cluttering up our room. Free breakfast was nice... typical...

A surprise treat for my daughter's "Sweet Sixteen" treating her and her 2 friends to a luxury Suite located on the beach in Santa Barbara... Unfortunately the fun trip was overshadowed by the Hotel Management who was inappropriate, and unfriendly, really ruining our weekend Vibe. Literally 60 seconds after walking into the room the phone rings with a VERY rude... More

We stayed at the West Beach Inn for several days as a home base while we went out each day and explored the area. This is not a resort where you would want to park and sit by the pool all day, so if you are looking for that kind of vacation, you are probably better off elsewhere. A few... More

Great location opposite the West Beach, comfortable rooms, free parking and nice freebies like the wine and cheese served in the evenings. We had one small problem, a lack of hot water to the shower , sorted out very quickly. We were on the second floor looking over the garden and the location was very quiet. Sterns Wharf and State...

I had you at Wine Reception, but it is also their location that you just can't beat for the price. Across the street from the beach and a short walk to the Pier or Harbor. And a few more blocks and you are on State Street, the shopping mecca. You have to walk up State Street, under the 101 and... More

A basic, clean hotel with close proximity to beach, restaurants, shopping and other areas. Be cautious about cancels (72 hours) I was not informed of their policy, had an emergency and delay ... without "corporate" approval I would have been charged.

This hotel looks like a regular motel, but the jacuzzi, the pool, and the place makes it kind of interesting. The rooms are not big but are convenient and clean, calm, and the parking lot allows you to do everything by walk. A very good place. And not so expensive. It is located very close to the harbour, so very... More

We had a great weekend stay at the west Beach Inn. Great staff, very comfortable bed, and well maintained. Easy to get around Santa Barbara, just catch the local shuttle for 50 cents and cruise State St. Santa Barbara is always a great escape.

We stayed here for 3 days including on New Year's Eve. We had reserved a double twin bed with an ocean view. The pros: Location - ocean facing, close to State street where all the restaurants and shops are located, walking distance to the pier, water based activities like kayaking available just across the road, reasonably priced for the location...

West Beach Inn is well located across from beach, breakwater, and harbor near Stearns Wharf in picture perfect Santa Barbara. The rooms are clean and comfortable, harbor views are awesome and the staff is very helpful. We had a car problem and staff went out of the way to get us a ride and a good mechanic. Parking is free... More
