Beach House Inn & Apartments
Ranked #5 of 18 Santa Barbara B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 5, 2011

My husband and I stopped for one night on our way up the coast without having booked accommodation in advance. We found this place on Tripadvisor and were so pleased when we arrived. This inn is an absolute gem! The owners are so friendly and keep the rooms absolutely immaculate. We had hoped for a nice room and maybe a fridge but to our delight there was a full kitchen, as well as a king sized very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom with dressing area outside of it. Outside, there is a pretty little grassed courtyard with comfy chairs and little bistro tables to sit at. After checking in we went off to explore the beautiful town of Santa Barbara, came back, made dinner and walked the two short blocks to the boardwalk along the beach. What a wonderful little stop and for sure we will stay here again, only next time for longer.
p.s. The price is amazing too!

Our stay could not have been more enjoyable. This quiet inn was just a couple of blocks from the beach and wharf -- easy for play and rest. The room with kitchenette was well equipped and comfortable. We made breakfast in the kitchen and ate in the garden courtyard; it was just right for us.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side (#1-4) can get quite warm on a sunny day (good in the winter and possibly to...

Big thumbs up to the Beach House Inn! We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding and heard almost all of our friends gripe about their own hotels (too loud, expensive, bad service, too small, etc...). We had no complaints whatsoever and we paid less! Gotta love Tripadvisor! Our room had been nicely rehabbed and was extremely clean. Room had room for a desk, a couple nice chairs, and a small kitchen area (fridge, microwave, cabinets). No breakfast, but freshly brewed coffee at the front in addition to the make it yourself coffee in the room. We would definitely return.

This small, private, former garden apartment, remodeled into a pet friendly motel is darling, convenient and reasonable! It's updated kitchen and bath are clean, comfortable and relaxing! There was no sign of a pet having been in our room - fresh smelling and no stains, yet pets were present on the property - relaxing on the grass while owners read or relaxed in bright colored patio chairs. I'll be back each time I travel to Santa Barbara!

Room Tip: Visitors with extended stays can utilize one of two larger suites and feel right at home!

Four of us needed a place to spend the night in Santa Barbara after visiting Lotusland. We checked out a few that cost between $149 and $239 for boring hotel rooms. We drove around the corner and spied this place. Yellow with pink doors and tons of plastic Adirondeck chairs, patio tables and chairs on the lawn area courtyard. We were shown an APARTMENT decorated in 50's fabrics, King sized bed, two fireplaces, two TV's, hidabed in the living room and a full kitchen and dining area...all this for $126!!! We took it immediately. The people were sweet and friendly,,,,gave us four videos to watch....tea and coffee provided, etc. We sat outside and drank our wine, had appetizers and watched the sunset and then walked a five minute walk to State Street to have dinner at the Fish Emporium. This place is dog friendly too! Would go here again in a heartbeat. Good value, fun place, roomy and REAL!!

Room Tip: Check out six and three. Six is the big apartment with full kitchen!!

Best deal we could find in town on short notice. Three friends and I arrived on our roadtrip through Cali in Santa Barbara on Friday before Labour Day weekend. All motels were either overpriced or full, but we luckily found the Beach House Inn. The staff is very very helpful and super friendly. The room was very spacious and the price was a really good deal. Location is perfect, close to the beach and the main street (bars, clubs, shops) is not far away either.

All in all, this place totally exceeded our expectations and was the best Inn on our trip through California up to now!

If we ever come back to SB, we will surely stay in the wonderful Beach House.

Thanks, Beach House Inn :-)

2 friends of mine and I were on a trip through California when we hit Santa Barbara and decided to stay in the Beach House Inn. Before that we had a terrible night in Santa Maria where we would never stop again on a trip.
As mentioned in other reviews the owners are very kind and helpful. It made us feel like staying in a B&B what felt like heaven after Santa Maria.
They thaught us everything we had to know about SB before we headed out to explore on our own.
It's a short walk (prlly 5min.) to get to the shuttle that takes you for 25cent downtown and even at nighttime when the shuttle's not driving anymore it takes you about 20 minutes to walk.
We would come back any time to meet the "Beach House Inn-Family" again and there's no other place in SB that makes you feel like actually beeing in SB as this place.
