“Catered to the Bride and family”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

This hotel was fantastic. This hotel was booked by our entire family and many of our guests for our wedding for the weekend. When we first got engaged, we went to this hotel to check out the rooms for our guests. Nick walked us around the hotel. He gave us a tour of their best room 322. He then went downstairs without being prompted and made sure our room was this room. When we arrived for the weekend we had a panic with many details of our trip and details of the hotels. We called the hotel and Mynor told me he had everything covered. He worked with management to make sure that we were well taken care of, even beyond their normal policies. During our stay they worked to make sure all of our family and guests were on the same floor and same wing of the hotel. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and congratulating. The hotel was also very nice, breakfast was great and the hotel is an ideal location to State st, the beach, and the harbor. I would highly recommend this hotel. When you walk into your room it feels like your secluded on the beach with the accommodations of a nice hotel. Thank you Mynor, Nick and staff!

Room Tip: The third floor can't be beat. Rooms 322-320 have amazing views.

Fantastic place to stay over the road from the beach, pier etc. Light and bright, very clean, spacious room, with views, very comfortable bed, and hot shower. Friendly staff and an above average breakfast for Best Western - an extra effort is made to make it appealing. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

My husband surprised me with a Highway 1 coastal birthday trip and this hotel was one of our stops along the way. We didn't have a reservation but they had a great room with a view of the beach! The decor was very beachy which matches our home, very clean, and unbelievably quiet. Would definitely stay here again, it was a bargain for Santa Barbara area!

Although we found this hotel very costly due to location, the hotel was extremely clean and very friendly service. Staff went above and beyond to exceed expectations. The location was ideal, as it was only steps away from the beach and the harbor.

I think Best Western Hotels are generally quite good and this one is no exception. The room was very comfortable but the location makes this one a stand out for the money. It across the street from the beach, in walking distance to many restaurants and the main Santa Barbara attractions.

Across the street from the beach - perfect location! The rooms are immaculately clean! The staff was incredibly helpful and cheerful - really made me feel welcome. I usually stay at higher end hotels but the service I received topped them. I will definitely stay there on my next trip to Santa Barbara.

I stayed at the Beachside Inn twice in the span of 2 months. The staff went out of their way to upgrade my room when I complained of not sleeping due to noise. If you want to enjoy the beach and/or visit SBCC, this is the place to stay. There is no shuttle to the airport.
