West Beach Inn, a Coast Hotel
Good location and value
Close to beach and marina and accessible to state street. Plenty of free parking and the complimetary breakfasts and wine / cheese in afternoon were nice, Staff very friendly.
Pool area is limited. We stayed in garden view room and it felt a bit tired / motel type accom. The ocean view rooms looked better.
Overall reasonable value for money.
Great place to go
This is definately a great place to stay during your visit to the west coast of the USA. The rooms are nice and clean. The pool is nice and complementary wine and cheese is offered to the guests at sunset. The location is near the beach and close to the city Center.

Wonderful little gem!
We booked this little place very last minute (ie on the day of arrival) as we were doing a Pacific Coast road trip from Vegas – Yosemite- LA. Santa B proved to be our favourite part of the trip, not least due to this fabulous little gem of a hotel. Normally we would look at 4-5 star hotels but this was the only one with any availability that wasn’t extortionately priced, so we booked – but without high hopes. However, we were so impressed. Very friendly and helpful. Free wine and cheese tasting each evening, located right opposite the beach- although we ended up using the pool all day as we largely had the entire pool area to ourselves! The pool is very deep (8 foot) so children never seemed to appear, blissfully . It’s also a beautiful pool- tall palm trees and bright flowers surrounding it so you really feel on holiday. Free towels and sunbeds, free ice cold water all day, a laundry room you could use, great air con, and a wonderful breakfast included in the price. Also free parking, unusually. We only stayed 2 nights as we wanted to crack on with the trip and explore LA, but once getting there we immediately wanted to return to Santa B and the west beach inn. Sadly it wasn’t available any more so we didn’t. I would gladly return to Santa B to stay in the west beach inn for an entire vacation.
Great hotel, great staff, great location what more can I say. When we arrived we where treated to wine cheese and coffee all free and to top it all of a great pool right across form the pier. Wonderful rooms and o would definitely stay there again and in any of there other hotels if they are this standard.
This hotel is in a good location for beach, harbour, marina and shuttle into town or tourist hop on hop off trolley.The rooms were a reasonable size and clean and comfortable, wi fi worked.
The pool was next to the breakfast room which dissuaded me from an early morning swim, I’m not keen on an audience. We were able to breakfast outside but had the weather been poor the breakfast room would have been too small. Breakfast was satisfactory.
An incident occured while we were there that affected our comfort for one of the nights but the manager responded appropriatley. Overall good stay.
Tip- Don’t miss the Museum of Art in Santa Barbara
