We stayed at the West Beach Inn recently on our first trip to Santa Barbara. Our room was dull and overpriced. Coast Hotels appear to have missed training staff in general customer service skills. Very disappointing.

As a couple travelling with a baby, who stayed here for 1 night, we were very happy with our choice of hotel. The location is perfect, it's right on the beach front. The rooms are huge, clean and well maintained. Yes the decor is slightly out-dated but this hotel offers value for money and a decent place to rest while... More

We only stayed one night at the end of our vacation. What a pleasant surprise. We were right across the street from the Marina and a short walk from Stearns Warf. They have a wine and cheese reception every night. Plastic wine glasses allowed us to enjoy a glass by the pool and the jacuzzi. We requested a Garden view... More

We stayed here for two nights, family room was clean and spacious. Pool was lovely. The cheese and wine in the evening was a great idea. The location was perfect, close to the beach etc. The staff weren't that friendly or helpful though.

My husband and I stayed at the West Beach Inn for one night. We had a nice room on the second floor, garden view, but were fortunate enough to be able to see the water while we were sitting in the chairs outside our door – very nice touch. The location was perfect. Close enough to walk to State Street,... More
