The hotel clerk told me my two electric bikes would be safe 3 feet outside front lobby. Then proceeded to walk away in the middle of the night while my two bikes were STOLEN. There is a special place in hell for this hotel. The owner acted as guilty as sin.

It’s a very nostalgic hotel that maintains it’s originality. It’s walking distance to the beach, has a great pool , our room has mini kitchen and free breakfast. The price that we paid is so reasonable. I appreciate the manager and Gerry for their kind attention. The room needs an update on the flooring. But overall very grateful and content. Thank you

The motel's attraction is being one block from the beach. The staff were also pleasant and helpful. However, the property is pretty old and in need of some TLC. The room was comfortable but over priced. I'm sure they can get the prices due to the location. That said, I'd stay at the Motel 6 next door which looked to be in better shape.

Please do not book- have been scammed out of over £600 by them. The providers have pretended to be a new management company to avoid refunding money on stay cancelled by covid. Prior to that, they were saying there was banking issues. Have had endless correspondence where they lie to me. Was disappointing enough having to cancel a trip without stress of trying to get money back.

My sister and I had an excellent experience as a guest of Inn at East Beach. We drove in very late and booked this pet-friendly hotel sight unseen. The parking lot was well lit, and we felt very safe. We were treated very kindly by all staff that we met at check-in and check-out. The hotel is recently renovated, and the rooms are clean as a whistle with mid-century modern charm. This hotel is a spot I have already told my family and friends all about it so they can stay here too. If you are ever in Santa Barbara, this is a great spot to rest and relax. Surrounding the hotel is EVERYTHING. Restaurants, shopping, and the beach is only one block away. Little bonus, we could see the ocean from our balcony.
