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

Did a lot of searching online for hotels in Santa Barbara. We decided to stay at West Beach Inn for location near the ocean, price and cleanliness. (Based mostly on reviews) Wasn't disappointed. The location is great. We stayed on the second floor which they said was a garden view. Decided not to pay almost 100.00 more for the ocean... More

Just a standard Inn, we had a room on second floor overlooking the pool which was very nice, I think they had upgraded us, this was not a standard room. The room was quite big and very comfortable, clean and with a decent bathroom. Location is very good in front of the beach, right in between the two piers, so... More

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
