I can't recommend this place enough! A great place to stay with Frank and Linda. Exactly what we were looking for in Santa B, nothing more nothing less, nothing fancy but clean and well sized room. SB is an expensive place to stay but this Inn provided a great value stay. Room was more than big enough for two adults... More

Nice place, and as the name suggests it's very conveniently located for the beach (less than a 5 minute walk). It's not particularly luxurious but it is extremely good value. The room was clean and comfortable with good amenities and the breakfast was tasty. What makes the difference is that the proprietor and the reception staff are incredibly nice people... More

We just returned from a long weekend at the Inn at East Beach. Location: One block from the beach. If you want to be on the beach first thing in the morning, this is the place for you. It is also right near a trolley stop to the waterfront and State Street. We did not have a car and got... More

Our stay at the Inn was ok. It's located behind the Hyatt, and is a block and a half from the beach. The front desk people are very friendly and efficient. Our room was nice with a small patio. There is no air conditioning, but an above fan and a portable tall fan. Unfortunately the ceilings are very thin (you... More

My husband and 3 year old daughter stayed here in late March. We had beautiful weather, so it made for a perfect day at the beach, zoo and for bike riding. The hotel is a very short walk to the beach and the zoo. Very convenient. Rooms were clean and toiletries were plenty. No AC, so it does get quite... More

We stayed here Enroute from SanFran to LA and were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality of the owners. Very clean and even more friendly. Great location for a bike ride along the coast and only a short walk to the bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed Santa barbara.

This is a nice little place with friendly hosts. You are made to feel very welcome at every step. The included continental breakfast is great -- be sure to try the endangered species turtle eggs! It is a block away from the beach, so you save a lot of money for those last few steps, so if you can live... More

This hotel is a hidden gem within Santa Barbara. Definitely punching above its weight and good value for the price (must've got it on a special deal)! Location is good right near to the beach and near to the local zoo and attractions. The entrance to the hotel looks really classy! The owners are fantastic very friendly and helpful with... More

Our family had three rooms. All were good. The junior suite was great We concur: we loved the vibe, the service and the location. The decor was done well for a mid century hotel. When our sink clogged late at night, they gave us a discount for that night. We are putting the inn on our list for future visits!
