West Beach Inn, a Coast Hotel
Really nice Room
The room was lovely , 2 huge queen beds , and we had a harbour view room .
The beds were sooooooo comfy.
The bathroom was strange , it had the coffee machine in the toilet ! Very strange .
The free wine and cheese was lovely , free tea and coffee too.
I wouldn’t recommend the breakfast , as was dried and only toast or dried cakes .
The best place is 2 buildings to the left called Sambos the food is amazing and open at 6am.
Would I stay again , yes .
Located across from the harbor, West Beach Inn is within easy access to much of Santa Barbara. Though they are an older property, like many others in SB, they demonstrate an attention to detail to maintenance and housekeeping: daily pool cleaning, not a blade of grass or flower out of place, and a second round by housekeeping to check bath linens and to leave chocolates on the pillows. Even in California, one must appreciate the almost instant hot water at the faucet and shower, even on the third floor. Though numerous travelers have expressed some sticker shock with Santa Barbara lodging, the West Beach Inn appears to be a value. If walking or cylcing around are not, the 50 meter Los Banos public pool is located across the street(open year for the non-SOCAL residents) for lap swimming.

We stay here when we are in the area. They are updating!!
We always stay here when we are in Santa Barbara. It has been getting a little dated, but they are making some improvements. YAY We were not able to use the pool and hot tub this time, so we were a little disappointed, but it is fixed by now. They did a resurface of the cement and it looks very nice.
We had great service and they offer Breakfast and a wine and cheese time in the evening. Very nice!!
They also offer an anniversary special with can save you some money. Ask them about it.
WE will stay here again. WE like it there. Close to the shuttles, Piers, Restaurants etc. You can take a shuttle up town. Very nice shopping area.

A Real Find
The location next to beach was perfect. The motel had very nice large with rooms, but the bathrooms were slightly small. The shower was great! The beds, pillows and linens were lovely. The room had every possible amenity you could image. We had a first floor room with a sliding door and patio area with landscaping. The rooms on the upper floors had a view of the ocean, but they were already booked. Excellent value for the price, as Santa Barbara is a bit expensive. The happy hour in the lobby had wine and cheese, but the wine…marginal, but thoughtful. The continental breakfast was ordinary, but nice to have that option. Yes, I would return and recommend to my friends.
excellent room in perfect location
This hotel is a real find. There is ample parking and it’s easy to find. We had an excellent view of the beach from our second floor room. The pool is small but heated, and there is a hot tub — we didn’t actually use this, but people appeared to be enjoying it. It’s really the location that is the best thing here. The room itself was large and modern, all the amenities that were needed, without being “luxurious”, and the internet was free. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast is included — the typical cold breakfast but a good selection — and there is daily wine and cheese 5-7 (very average but drinkable/edible, a nice way to relax and chat at the end of the day). Friendly staff.
