Nice, clean and spacious room. Looks better on the inside. The bed was very confortable. Our room had a regrigirator ans small kitchen area. I would have liked air conditioning, but would defenitely stay here again.

Everything in its place! A very enjoyable stay, very comfortable, very clean, great location. Just one thing, don't eat too many hard boiled, endangered turtle eggs. Look forward to returning. We stayed in the junior suite which was nicely appointed, room #129.

Beach is 1 minute walk away. Small hotel, but the amenities and the rooms are very comfy and everything appeared to be new. The tub was only thing that does not fit this description, but again, it was all very clean and comfy. The owner of the hotel was a perfect gentlemen and greeted all the customers every morning with... More

Mid-century modern motel ( in a good way) just a block from the beach. Very friendly and accommodating staff. No AC, but that seems to be fairly standard along the coast where it doesn't get hot. Fans provided in the room worked nicely. Complimentary continental breakfast was good with fresh fruit, yogurts, cereal, and about 20 different kinds of muffins,... More

My fault for not paying attention to the comments & listing, but our room (106) had no air conditioning, and poor cross-ventilation. Fans, yes. Of course, this would be a non-issue for people who actually dont like AC and like sleeping with the windows open. If stairs are an issue for you, call them directly for a reservation since there...

I have family visiting from Ireland and booked them at the Inn at East Beach. Was happy to find them a place since they only had one night in SB and I had booked the room a few days ahead. Orbitz called the day before their arrival to cancel saying the room was no longer available but they could find... More

Just one block from the wonderful zoo and one block the other way from the superb beach. Primo location for families. Frank is a star, making the morning breakfast - lots of yummy options - an extra treat. Obviously loves people. The pool is a great extra, something our kids missed at other hotels on our trip. The rooms are... More

Family of four had a really good time at Inn at East beach. The room was clean, it had Coffeemachine, frigde and Windows that could be opened. We really enjoyed the pool area and breakfast was good. They also have self laundry. I returning to Santa Barbara this would be our choice.

I really enjoyed the Inn at East Beach. Frank was a wealth of knowledge and helpful. He made us feel right at home. The continental breakfast was great! It was a couple of blocks from the beach and the electric shuttle.

Our Travel Agent found this place for us. We loved it. It was spotlessly clean, had comfortable beds, was decorated nicely with some attractive unique touches and the staff (the owner??) was friendly and welcoming. We were alarmed to discover no air conditioning in our rooms, at first. But we opened some windows and figured out that we didn't need... More
