West Beach Inn, a Coast Hotel
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.
They dont ever have to worry about dealing with me again!
Because the manager, Patricia is one of the rudest people I’ve ever dealt with. Booking.com recommended this hotel, I was looking for peace and quiet to work on my writing. The first night was nothing outstanding, the beds are too firm and I was next to a parking lot so lots of in and outs but nothing that would encourage a complaint. Then I wake the next morning to someone dragging furniture across the roof of my room. It went on for 30 minutes before I asked the housekeeping staff to pick up the furniture instead of dragging it back and forth. They apologized. That’s fine, but the dropping and picking up of anything and everything began and I called the front desk. Patricia. There is no way her staff is disruptive and by the way its 10AM – so this is what happens at that time. Basically I needed to deal with it. I complained again at the front desk and Patricia offered to move me to another room I told her I just want to go somewhere quieter, after back and forth with her agitation inciting my agitation I asked for the manager’s info so I can let her know that Patricia’s attitude is that no one ever complains so if one has a problem with the hotel, its their problem. She told me its my problem and Its HER hotel and that Teresa Stiff has no more power than she. I asked for her number, she gave it to me when I called Teresa, Patricia answered and sent me to Teresa’s voicemail. I wanted Patricia to call her on the phone in front of me since the number was just a runaround and Patricia then threatened to call security. She wanted to call security on me for being disruptive. I was staying in this hotel, they have my money. I told her to call security/police and on what grounds would they arrest me? Because I would not leave her hotel was her response. I decided to get my belongings and check out – as I left she said “You need to go!” from the front desk. So what could have been dealt with, by her just being a bit more respectful, less defensive and more professional. Its a 3 star motel with a 1 star attitude and it starts with the woman who is “in-charge” up front.
Great Place for your money & Great location
Whoever writes bad reviews about this place is crazy. For the money you pay and the location, this place is perfect! clean rooms, remodeled modern look & close to beach & State st. Had a great time with my girlfriend and everything was a short cab ride or a walk away. Sambos is a restaurant nearby, the pier is right there, bike rentals, state street. Friendly staff. I highly recommend this place for its location, price and cleanliness.
