We stayed here for two nights in July (our second time), and once again Frank lived up to his reputation, he really makes this place what it is!! The place is clean, comfortable, has good size rooms and IMO it offers very good value for money in (pricey) SB. The location is really good, WiFi worked perfectly and the self... More

We were thrilled with how close to the beach this motel was. Check in was fast, smooth, and super friendly. I met the owner (who lives on site) twice, and both times was super helpful. It is a bit too far from state street to walk, but a quiet location that was still close to everything. My only complaint was... More

Every staff member I spoke with was friendly and helpful. No WiFi issues. Comfortable beds. Hotel is in a great location. The morning breakfast offerings are good but the hours are 7:30 to 9:30. As many other reviewers mentioned, the rooms don't have AC. You might not think it's an issue in Santa Barbara, but it is. Even with the... More

Stayed 1 night while making a road trip from Dana Point CA to Carmel by the Sea. Liked the hotel so much that I regret that our stay was not longer. Frank Santana was an amazing host. He was constantly upbeat and helpful in so many ways. His continental breakfast blew me away. The quality of the baked goods was... More

On arrival in the cool, perfectly tidy reception you are met by the perfume of vanilla and the friendliest of hosts who provides detailed information about the inn and Santa Barbara. Bedrooms and bathroom are clean, perfumed, nicely decorated, good size and cosy. Comfortable big bed with plenty of sheets and pillows. Cute toiletry selection. Breakfast is of great quality... More

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
