First off, you are greeted by Frank...very fun, welcoming manager of the property. This a renovated 1950"s style property which is what I refer to as econo-luxe. Great location, lovely setting, fabulous breakfast and many conveniences such as bikes, etc. right on the property...without the price tag...really very reasonable. We will definitely go back and have already referred to many... More

Recently stayed here for two nights as part of a California road trip and really could have stayed longer. We arrived late evening and were met by Frank the manager. This man is reason enough to stay here, he's the most welcoming person iv ever met, he made us feel at home straight away and couldn't do enough to recommend... More

Really enjoyed our stay, nice accommodations. Everything you need for a family beach vacation. Frank is such fun in the front office. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Complimentary breakfast was continental style, but such a variety. Beautiful fresh fruit, pastries, boiled eggs, juices, cereals, toasts, yogurt, and other treats. The only reason I did not rate a 5 is due... More

We love this motel for so many reasons. We ended up needing a room on the first floor and Frank made it happen. Frank is simply the best. The breakfast is beyond belief. It was quiet with easy parking. Great location. Highly recommended.

The hotel is literally 1/2 block from East beach where there is an outdoor beach restaurant. It looks like a 50s hotel but the amenities are just fine and the service is excellent and the breakfast is very good continental style. Juices, parboiled eggs, cereals, good quality pastries, quiche etc. Second time staying here and would tay again.

My usual Montecito hotel was full, so I scrambled to find a place for one night passing through Santa Barbara. The Inn at East Beach is in a little hotel row, near the Zoo and across the street from the beach volleyball courts. It's a great location for all Santa Barbara's attractions, and near enough the 101 to get back... More

This was a great location and just across from the beach. The room was clean and the staff incredibly friendly. Breakfast was continental but with a large selection. The only drawback was there was no air conditioning but there was a ceiling fan and large floor fan for our use. Overall, great accommodation for a good price, considering other places... More

We did not have the best room I think, but my family with two teenagers enjoyed it here. A great position of get to the beautiful East Beach and a gentle stroll up to the pier and wharf areas.

Staying at the Inn at East Beach was one of my favourite parts of our California road trip. From the moment we walked in, the staff were so friendly and helpful.
