Stayed here for one night at the way up the coast and really enjoyed it. Santa Barbara is beautiful and it was a pleasant walk into the town from the In . The staff were incredibly fried kg and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and lots of choice plus lovely spacious rooms.

Two night stay for a family wedding in Santa Barbara. Good value for the money. Rooms were adequate in size and clean. Needs air conditioners in the rooms. Host was very informative and helpful with good restaurant recommendations. Very good breakfast. The location was good for walking to the beach. I would definitely return to this hotel again if I...

We stayed for two nights in one of the fireplace rooms. Although it was too warm for a fire the room was spacious. The location is wonderful, right behind the Hyatt, so there is a great beach that is close. Also it is right by the trolley stop so we never moved our car once we parked it. Frank the... More

The Inn At East Beach is a treasure! I am hesitant to write a glowing review because I don't want there to be no rooms available the next time I need to travel to Santa Barbara. The Inn at East Beach is a bit like stepping back into time...the building is possibly a 50/60's apartment building? Each room is accessed... More

This little place is tucked into side street not far from the beach and the marina. The host was a very nice man who was genuinely concerned about the comfort of his guests. He went out of his way to be helpful in every way possible. The rooms are clean and property is generallly very well kept. The only issue... More

The location is great, the hotel is quiet, nicely appointed, staff is friendly and helpful, the 'continental' breakfast is amazing, the bed is comfortable, there are bicycles to rent, parking is free, it's just wonderful. What a find.

Travelled as a couple and had a great stay while visiting family in Santa Barbara. It's a small property with amazing staff. Every person I spoke with was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was enjoyable, the general manager a pleasure to speak with, and the location was amazing. Stayed in room 127 and had no issues of traffic noise. I was... More

It all starts with Frank the manager. He sets the tone for his entire staff. They all care about you. It is a great place to relax and have a great time. Great breakfast--It is a lot of fun to hear FRANK describe the menu.

Yes the manager is very friendly, but.... Stayed in room 129. The back rooms have extremely loud noise from the 101 freeway. So loud that they actually equip the room with complimentary ear plugs for the guests! This is just wrong and they should warn their guests about this issue before booking. The front rooms are probably ok, but it... More

Fantastic location, it may as well be on the beach it was so close and easy! This place is an incredible value in a very desirable, beautiful and pricey neighborhood. Room was spacious, beds and bedding were top notch. FREE parking and very nice complimentary continental breakfast. The only cons are you can REALLY hear your neighbors walking around above... More
