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

Travelling from LA to San Fran along the Pacific Coast Highway and an overnight in Santa Barbra. The hotel is very quaint, even a complimentary wine and cheese each night at the pool, what a great idea! A chance to meet other travelers over a glass or two of California wine. Set up like a motor lodge, free parking, decent... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a road trip between LA and San Francisco. It was a friendly hotel with a pool and parking set just across the road from the beach and the harbour. It was very well placed to either walk into the main part of the beautiful Santa Barbara or to explore... More

Stayed for 4 nights in lovely Santa Barbara. West Beach Inn is in a great position opposite the marina and beach. Easy walking to good restaurants next the marina, and about 20 mins into the main shops and restaurants, although you can get the trolley. There is free parking on site. The rooms are small but well equipped, with a... More
