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

We called last minute and got a great deal on the NORTH SUITE of this hotel. The suite had it's own private entrance, a HUGE living room/dining room and a great bedroom. They... More

I arrived for graduation weekend and stayed here with my fiancé. We got in and were very tired so we went straight to bed. Woke up the next morning and jumped in the shower. There was hair in the shower...which I could forgive if not for the blood spatter I found on the comforter when I walked out and turned... More

West Beach Inn was a great place to stay in Santa Barbara. We were in town for a few days for vacation and this place was perfect. Clean quiet rooms. We were in a "garden View" that was just outside the pool, lobby area. Cute, comfy chairs outside our room to enjoy the view of the pool and marina beyond--nice... More

Loved the view from our balcony. The bed and room were very comfortable. Enjoyed the pool, breakfast, wine and cheese. Very friendly staff. Was within walking distance of the pier, beach and good restaurants. Whale watching tour, kayaking, bicycle rentals and Segway rentals close by.

The West Beach Inn was lovely in Santa Barbara. I had looked at the property before arriving in LA, but had not booked anything as my schedule was flexible before I had to be in Newport. Had never been to Santa Barbara so decided to drive from LA and check it out, (approx 2 hour drive). LOVELY coastal drive for... More
