I have visited Santa Barbara several times in the last year. It is a tricky town to find nice well located hotels under $200 a night. I have stayed at the West Beach Inn twice in the past few months. While it is an older property, it is a great choice if you want to be near the beach.
I like lots of things about this hotel. It has a beautiful courtyard and small pool area. It is across the street from the harbor and is an easy walk to the pier and lower State Street. The rooms are reasonably nice... you may even manage a peekaboo view of the harbor from the rooms that are't sold as ocean view. Parking is easy and convenient.
Unfortunately, the doors/windows all face the the courtyard which means that you don't have any privacy from passerby's if you want to enjoy the view. Things that I wish they would improve include the beds (very firm) and the noisy wall unit ventilation system.
