A little gem!
We were very positively surprised by this inn, it was very clean and had a perfect location for a quick one night stay in Santa Barbara. They have both pool and a hot tub which was great, unfortunately didn’t get a chance to try as we only stayed overnight. Would have liked to stay longer! Parking and breakfast were free which we appreciated.
Intimate, romantic inn across from the beach
This is my second time visiting and they remembered my last stay. The inn is across the street from the beach. Parking is free and so is the continental breakfast. At 5pm there’s a manager’s reception with complimentary wine and cheese and crackers. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Ask for a room with a view. I’ll be back again.
Stayed three nights; nice large room on ground floor with semiprivate garden patio. Nice updated bathroom; however, quite small. Beds were very comfortable, but very high making it a little challenging to get into. Continental breakfast was adequate; pool area was small, and chairs/lounges filled up fast. Most I’ve ever paid for a room, but I did shop around and this was the going rate for a motel close to the beach.
Nice Retro Hotel, Nice Location, Small Rooms
Went to a family wedding in Santa Barbara, the West Beach Inn was recommended by the bride and groom. As mentioned by others, the location of this property is awesome, right across the street from the beach, about a quarter mile from the pier, about 100 yards from the original Sambos and less than a mile to State St (the main drag for shops, restaurants, pubs and entertainment.) All very walkable.
This a retro property, felt like right out of the 60′s. Expected to see Don Draper walk out of one of the rooms. The rooms have been updated and clean. The only drawback is that the rooms are small. They could do without the desk in the room.
Nice pool area, a little pricey, however, not really considering the location. I would stay here again.
Location, location, location
This motel sits across the boulevard from the Santa Barbara beach, which on a weekend afternoon is filled with people and sailboats on the water – very picturesque. It was a little noisy in the courtyard, but settled down at a reasonable hour. The view can’t be beat and this is a well maintained and lovely little property. Given that this is a very popular destination, I thought the price was reasonable. You are right by the pier. Wonderful stay.
