We needed somewhere to stay in Santa Barbara and after a quick look on trip advisor, we decided to book West Beach Inn - I wasn't really expecting much to be honest; I thought it would be a typical motel. I couldn't have been more mistaken though. The lobby area was clean and the check in was fast. We were... More

Stayed here one night en route from SF to LA. Great location, close to beach and wharf. Expected a motel but found it to be much nicer, great pool area and grounds. Would definitely stay here again. Thoroughly recommend the Italian restaurant next door.

We upgraded our room which I think was a good decision because some of the rooms face the car park ours fortunately had a nice terrace with a view of the beach and... More

We stayed 5 nights in a nice room with a very comfortable king size bed. This is a small inn with very pretty, well kept grounds, pool & spa. The staff really understands good customer service. Patricia, Joseph and all the staff went out of their way to accommodate us in a friendly, caring manner. The location is great, across... More

We really enjoyed our 3 days at West Beach Inn. I did a lot of homework before choosing the West Beach Inn and so glad i made this choice. We made the reservation via the hotel's own website and got a better deal than any of the hotel "hot deal" sites. Check out West Beach inn's own promotions page. The... More

My husband was here for a week of work meetings. So I was able to tag along. I thought thought it was great. We had had a bad experience in our travels and after traveling for 25 hours, we were finally able to get in. The night time gentlemen got us into a room, fairly quick. However our reservations were... More

We stayed here at the beginning of April 2013 for Spring Break. I made reservations ahead of time through Expedia and got a relatively good price. The property is located across the street from the marina and diagonal to West Beach. We were able to walk to the beach portion in about 3 minutes and Stearns Wharf (shopping, dining) in... More

The staff was very nice and helpful. We had a great view of the harbor. Close to everything.. free breakfast and wine and cheese pairing in the evening. Also free parking. Within walking distance to the wharf. We would end each evening on the balcony with a glass of wine.

I stayed here one night after a long (post-St. Patrick's hangover) drive from Monterey. The front desk staff were friendly and checked me in quickly. They informed me of the continental breakfast and offered some opinions on where I could eat dinner. The breakfast the next morning was nothing fancy, but definitely sufficient. They had bagels, bread, etc. with cream... More
