We stayed one night at the Inn at East Beach and were very happy with our stay. The hotel is charming, clean, and in a great location, just across the street from across the street from the beach (i.e., cross a very quiet street to the Hyatt, then cross the next street to the beach). Frank, the manager, is friendly... More

Frank Santana is the man! The man who makes your stay in Santa Barbara a top experience. He is a master in hospitality. The energy he has to make every single guest feel like a VIP customer is incredible. I suppose that's why he is called being a true (alive and kicking) legend. Thank you for making this day and...

What a wonderful experience! 5 of us stayed only one night as we were just doing a stop over for a vineyard tour, but we all wish we could have stayed longer. I think we all agreed that Frank made the experience. The rooms were also quite nice and the beds very comfortable. Was surprised to find a continental breakfast... More

This hotel is wonderful in so many ways. The laid back feel makes it so easy to unwind. The rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious and dining is pleasant. I would recommend this for both business and holidaying, with the beach about 100 yards away.

We were very pleased by the wonderful location - right behind the Hyatt overlooking the ocean and the great service! We definitely enjoyed the room we had with a front view to the ocean! The breakfast was simple but nice. Good coffee and biscotti's that were locally made!

Hidden behind the Hyatt right off the beach perfect location quiet central to Ocean boulevard. A kitschy little motel up do with nice amenities and the most solicitous and delightful hotelier you'll ever meet. Meet Frank and you'll feel as if this is your home.
