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

Dear John Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry to hear that your stay was less than enjoyable. I do understand about our soundproofing issues and we are currently working to have it upgraded. While we do provide earplugs in all of our guest rooms, I understand that this option is not comfortable for everyone. Sadly, our location... 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

I can't recommend this place enough! A great place to stay with Frank and Linda. Exactly what we were looking for in Santa B, nothing more nothing less, nothing fancy but clean and well sized room. SB is an expensive place to stay but this Inn provided a great value stay. Room was more than big enough for two adults... More

Nice place, and as the name suggests it's very conveniently located for the beach (less than a 5 minute walk). It's not particularly luxurious but it is extremely good value. The room was clean and comfortable with good amenities and the breakfast was tasty. What makes the difference is that the proprietor and the reception staff are incredibly nice people... More

We just returned from a long weekend at the Inn at East Beach. Location: One block from the beach. If you want to be on the beach first thing in the morning, this is the place for you. It is also right near a trolley stop to the waterfront and State Street. We did not have a car and got... More

Our stay at the Inn was ok. It's located behind the Hyatt, and is a block and a half from the beach. The front desk people are very friendly and efficient. Our room was nice with a small patio. There is no air conditioning, but an above fan and a portable tall fan. Unfortunately the ceilings are very thin (you... More

My husband and 3 year old daughter stayed here in late March. We had beautiful weather, so it made for a perfect day at the beach, zoo and for bike riding. The hotel is a very short walk to the beach and the zoo. Very convenient. Rooms were clean and toiletries were plenty. No AC, so it does get quite... More

We stayed here Enroute from SanFran to LA and were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality of the owners. Very clean and even more friendly. Great location for a bike ride along the coast and only a short walk to the bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed Santa barbara.
