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. The pool was next to the breakfast room which dissuaded me from an early morning swim, I'm not keen on an audience. We were able to... More

This hotel was so friendly, convenient and perfect for my needs. I visit friends in Santa Barbara and loved starting the day at the West Beach Inn and ending it there. Will definitely stay there again.

Having stayed at a ghastly hotel in Pismo Beach on our ten day tour of California, we approached the West Beach Inn with some trepidation. We need not have worried. It turned out to be a glorious experience! The rooms were spacious and immaculate. Close to all the local amenities we were able to walk to the pier and indulge... More

We stayed two nights on the way down to LA and it was our first time at Santa Barbara. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and our room was great, We went for a cost view room and the overlook to the harbour and the beach beyond was lovely. This hotel has a great location and nice restaurants nearby.... More

We stayed at this inn for 3 nights and chose it for it's location; we had to be in different sections of Santa Barbara that weekend. It's across from the beach, harbor and pier and great for strolls along the beach or to many restaurants and, of course, if you have time, a beach visit. The welcome was very friendly,... More

This is now the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at the West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara, California. Each stayed has won our emphatic "thumbs up". Located right across from the Pacific and Stearn's Wharf, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff friendly and the special amenities excellent. In the morning the continental breakfast is simple but... More

When we requested to speak w the manager, we were... More

Hello, I am compelled to respond to all of the inaccuracies in your review above regarding the "same day reservation" that your husband made last weekend. Once you no-show'd and the computer charged you the following morning, we left a message for your husband at the number he provided the night before. When you arrived at the desk the following...

Great hotel, very clean room with balcony seats. Staff very accommodating. Complimentary breakfast which was very good. Free wine and cheesed tasting every night between 5 and 7 pm. Not much more to say.

Nice people. Manager was super thoughtful. Ocean view. One of the best choices in Santa Barbara. A little bit more expensive than others, but worth every penny. Beautiful pool with ocean view. Free hot breakfast, wifi, parking. Walking distance from everything.

We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel and found it adequate but not exceptional. The staff was VERY courteous and helpful. However, we found the room noisy. We were on the 2nd floor and since most guests used the outdoor staircase, which is concrete as well as the outdoor walkway, we were disturbed many times by people climbing the... More
