My family and I stayed here for three days to celebrate our seven year wedding anniversary. From the moment we stepped into the office, Frank, the office manager, was extremely attentive and welcoming. He gave us tons of brochures and coupons for various restaurants and informed us about the local attractions for the week. A great perk about the inn... More

Pros - unusually friendly staff, ample free parking, very close to beach, smart & well designed room, quiet & relaxed Cons - no air con, breakfast was a bit of a bun fight with insufficient space Overall - trendy & good value (and Frank really is VERY helpful!)

Dear Dave, Thank you for taking a moment to tell us your thoughts! I do understand about our lack of air conditioning and am currently trying to work it into our next renovation budget.

We stayed at Inn at East Beach for 4 nights and were very pleased with the place. Our room was just across from reception which was very convenient and easy to load and unload our cases.

Hotel is in a great location just a block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. Great Boutique hotel experience. Rooms were updated recently, free wi fi, very friendly staff, and a great continental breakfast in the lobby of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Barbara

We spent 2 nights here during a road trip and wish we had booked longer. The experience from beginning to end was the best I have known at any hotel. Frank welcomed us and gave us useful information. Our room was spotless and spacious enough for a family of 4. The breakfast was spot on, good quality continental style with... More

We spent a week at Inn at East Beach and enjoyed every minute. The week started off with Frank (go there, now, and meet Frank!) giving us the low down on where to go, where to get deals - he was a one-man coupon and free dessert show! He also mans the breakfast station/room every day from 7:30-9:30, which was... More

Everything you need: bikes, boogie boards and sand toys. Great location at beach and close to downtown-state street.. Great fast breakfast.. and super friendly staff. Upstairs room quiet but no a/c was a little warm at night. They do supply fans..
