The rooms were spacious and well decorated. The view of the harbor from the balcony was great, loved watching the boats. The staff was attentive refilling breakfast items (typical continental breakfast food). Wine & Cheese by the pool was great. Hotel is a close walk to Stearns Wharf. Only downside is that the bathroom is small with limited counter space.

The nicest part of this hotel is the "lobby", which is really more of a check in area. The breakfast consisted of some fruit and boxed pastries. The pool area did not have enough lounge chairs and was full most of the day - this wasn't much of an issue for us as the area left much to be desired... More

We hit Santa Barbara around lunch time and booked our room at West Beach Hotel from the local Irish pub. We were excited when the drive to our hotel took us by the pier and beautiful beach. West Beach Hotel is located right across the street from the marina. Our friend has a bum knee so she asked if we... More

We stayed for one night on the way to San Francisco from LA. The room was clean and we had a nice sea view. The location is perfect. Attentive service, nice breakfast. If you are runner, get up early and excercise during the sunrise.

We had a balcony room across from the pool/beach and really enjoyed sitting there in the afternoon viewing the ocean. The room was clean and the staff were great. We had breakfast and afternoon free wine/cheese around the pool. We like to walk and this place is within easy walking distance of everything at the water front and to State... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights for a nice getaway, and we were not disappointed. We were efficiently checked into our clean room. We spent time at the pool each day and evening; it was always clean, usually quiet, and the nighttime lighting was really nice. We were just a quick few minutes drive to Trader... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel was. For three star, they go above and beyond your average hotel. Free happy hour each day from 5-7 pm in the lobby with cheese/crackers and wine; free breakfast each day (not a typical hot breakfast but adequate to get a bit before going out and about); chocolate "turn...

Cute little inn across from the beach. The rooms were clean and a little small. Free parking with a very minimal breakfast. Close to great resturants and they did offer wine and cheese tasting. Also great fishing just across the street!

I moved over to this location from another place I stayed for two days while in Santa Barbara. I like the fact that it is across the street from the ocean...with lots of beach activities...and restaurants close by. This place is kept up nicely for the price...clean, and loved all the lush gardens in and around the pool. Had a... More
