This hotel make sthe stay in Santa Barbara quite treasurable and heart warming by the managers' sincere services. Buried beneath Hyatt's charm and reputation, Inn At East Beach is definitely a hidden gem. The utmost quality I must mention is again the quality of service provided by the general managers who had made the check-in and check-out process most smoothly.... More

Stayed for two nights at the inn at East beach- a fantastic location with exceptionally friendly staff. We had a beautiful room ( recommend upgrading to room 117 with a great view if the beach- worth the extra money). The highlight for us was how important we were made to feel by Christina. I had mentioned I was planning to... More

We found the Inn At East Beach through Yelp and decided to stay for 1 night as we traveled down to San Diego. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out the staff was very nice and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable... slightly awkward layout, but we did have a lot of stuff.

We stayed here for 3 nights on a round trip through California and it was one of the best locations we discovered. Frank and his team are amazing and the hospitality was second to none. The rooms are a little dated with no proper AC but plenty of fans and it really did not detract from the overall atmosphere or... More

My family and I stayed here for three days to celebrate our seven year wedding anniversary. From the moment we stepped into the office, Frank, the office manager, was extremely attentive and welcoming. He gave us tons of brochures and coupons for various restaurants and informed us about the local attractions for the week. A great perk about the inn... More

Pros - unusually friendly staff, ample free parking, very close to beach, smart & well designed room, quiet & relaxed Cons - no air con, breakfast was a bit of a bun fight with insufficient space Overall - trendy & good value (and Frank really is VERY helpful!)

Hotel is in a great location just a block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. Great Boutique hotel experience. Rooms were updated recently, free wi fi, very friendly staff, and a great continental breakfast in the lobby of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Barbara
