The best part of staying here is having the free continental breakfast with Frank the manager. He is so friendly and helpful. He is also very funny. This place feels like a boutique hotel without the high price tag. It is very close to the beck and a decent walk to State Street if you are up for some exercise.... More

Having travelled all over the country I found this hotel very interesting in terms of its central american artwork on the walls; the textures of the bathroom and the amazing pale blue stonework on the walls. Discussed this with the hotel manager who told me it came from Indonesia. Room was clean and as I said different because of the... More

We recently stayed at the Inn at East Beach on our south-west USA trip. This little happy place should be kept as a secret hidden place. But ok...I try to be honest with the tripadivisor users: It is really fantastic. WiFi included, rooms very nice decorated. Comfy beds and a real awesome breakfast. I definitely already miss it and will... More

The only regret we have about The Inn at East Beach is not having time in our schedule to stay an extra night! Staying in Santa Barbara in a hotel with more than 2 stars is never cheap but the website offered us a very good september deal which made a junior king suite cheaper than a normal room in... More

We received a very warm welcome from Frank who provided an abundance of information on the town and gave us some useful vouchers for bars and restaurants. The beds were comfortable, the showers nice and hot and there was ample parking at the back for our hire car. Breakfast in the morning was superb with a great selection of pastries,... More

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
