Refurb is currently underway but we were not disturbed by any dust or noise. The workmen are courteous and the staff here are very welcoming and helpful. Lovely pool, although we didn't really get...

Travelling from San Francisco to Santa Monica this was an overnight and we were not disappointed. The Beachside hotel was in an excellent location and as suggested in the name it is exactly that beachside !! Quiet, comfortable, clean and perfect location for travelling Highway 1.

Good location across from the beach but found this hotel out dated. Room was very spacious but in need of a paint job. Lobby where breakfast is served is small but food was good. Felt price was a little high for the condition of this Best Western but I guess you pay for the location.

You could not control the air conditioning. You could only set it at one temperature, not hot / cold.The thermostat only went down to 70 and the ac did not work very well. If the outside temperature was below 70, the room still did not cool off. There was no circulation even with the windows open. At night, the room... More

This is a great hotel, very centrally located to the beach and a short walk to the town. The hotel was undergoing some refurbishment however this didn't impact our stay. The pool was clean and provided free towels. The room had a fridge and a balcony which offered views of the beach. The beach is lovely and the children were... More

We stayed on Fri and Sunday for Labor Day weekend. Everything seemed to be updated/remodeled. The rooms were clean and so were the hotel grounds. The staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. My husband and I would stay here again.

A tad noisy due to renovations and the lift was out of order, but perfect for somewhere to put your head down for the night. What a beautiful town, the food at Toma just down the street is the best I have experienced in California in the last 10 days of travel

Excellent location on beach with friendly and professional staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with whisper quiet AC and a novel compartmentalised bathroom set up that works well. The inclusive breakfasts were amongst the best. Not the cheapest, but a good compromise between price and quality. Really enjoyed our four nights in this well-run hotel.

Nice location in Santa Barbara where one can stroll the boulevard along the waterfront. Plenty of parking, nice reception, good continental breakfast in the lobby, great little courtyard pool and clean, well-appointed rooms. The room was small, but cozy and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed the balcony and the fresh air coming in. We didn't have a waterfront view since... More
