We live in Orange County and just wanted to get away for a few days to relax by the ocean. This place has several nice qualities that gives you the feeling you are in a quaint upscale area with many nice amenities. The rooms are not huge but large enough for two people to feel comfortable and taken care of.... More

I stayed here with my husband for my birthday. Great, quiet location facing the harbour. It's only a five minute walk to state street. Ideal! The room was comfortable and stylish, the continental breakfast was more than adequate for me. Especially liked that they had boiled eggs and fresh fruit, and not just cereal and pastries. Really enjoyed the complimentary... More

Clean, big rooms, quite and comfortable. The only negative part is the lack of cooling or then it was broken. It is in the right spot of Santa Batbara, at the beach but only 5 minutes walk from the nightlife and restaurants. Would call the place safe. Ok breakfast at the pool area. Not the cheapest but also nothing to... More

This is a beautiful Inn — motel style but upscale, as one would expect in Santa Barbara. Fantastic views with a balcony to take in the harbor. Perfect! The problem with this otherwise beautiful room and view? Let me be very specific: A MAJOR, violent disturbance from Room 318, two doors down from my stay, on the night of 9/13/2014.... More

Thankfully, rarely do we have to deal with the mentally ill being brought to our property by a registered guest. We feel our evening supervisor did a fair job in assessing the situation, 1st by calling security and then following up by calling the police. After arriving and speaking with the woman the police then informed management that she had... More

We chose the West Beach as a seaside break in our Pacific Highway trip - and it was a good choice. Terrific location on the seafront, near the marina, but a short walk to the town centre and some excellent restaurants The breakfasts were very good, although the choice was a bit limited. Accommodation was very good, staff were attentive... More

Close to beach and marina and accessible to state street. Plenty of free parking and the complimetary breakfasts and wine / cheese in afternoon were nice, Staff very friendly. Pool area is limited. We stayed in garden view room and it felt a bit tired / motel type accom. The ocean view rooms looked better. Overall reasonable value for money.

This is definately a great place to stay during your visit to the west coast of the USA. The rooms are nice and clean. The pool is nice and complementary wine and cheese is offered to the guests at sunset. The location is near the beach and close to the city Center.

We booked this little place very last minute (ie on the day of arrival) as we were doing a Pacific Coast road trip from Vegas - Yosemite- LA. Santa B proved to be our favourite part of the trip, not least due to this fabulous little gem of a hotel. Normally we would look at 4-5 star hotels but this... More

This hotel is in a good location for beach, harbour, marina and shuttle into town or tourist hop on hop off trolley.The rooms were a reasonable size and clean and comfortable, wi fi worked.
