We spent one night here on a road trip around California - arrived via the road through Los Olivos and past Lake Cachuma on a beautiful day - so we were sold on Santa Barbara even before arriving! But the West Beach Inn was a real find and somewhere we would love to come back to on our next trip - in fact, as the basis for our next trip!!
We arrived a couple of hours before check-in but sorted all the paperwork ready for the moment the room was ready (earlier than the published check-in time). Our check-in host was really helpful, and gave us a fantastic recommendation for lunch which we sampled and adored! Once into the room, it was very spacious for 4 with a great view across to the Harbour and beach, and a lovely balcony where we spent the evening watching the moon dance over the sea. The beds were extremely comfortable and all of the accommodation was spotlessly clean and well cared for.
My only point for improvement would be on value for money as we stayed at better resort-type hotels than this on our trip for less money - but this may be down to the deals that were available on the day, and I hope future travellers find good deals! It is a great place to stay with reliable service, wifi and free parking in a beautiful location - I'd love to return.
