Very comfortable and close to beach

I arrived shortly after 3 and my room was ready – which was great since I had just driven 4 1/2 hours from the Bay Area.

Our room was nice, clean and looks like it’s been partially upgraded. The bathroom was small, shower even smaller. My husband (who thankfully wasn’t on this trip) at 6’5″ and 300lbs wouldn’t have fit without water cascading out the door. The shower had multi-use shampoo, conditioner and gel – which is more earth friendly! The towels were nice – not luxurious, but not sandpaper either.

Bed was comfortable and the sheets soft – again, not luxurious.

The a/c was the most efficient and strong blowing I’ve ever come across! Sitting in the bed across the room I could feel the air blowing strongly.

Due to COVID they didn’t have wine/cheese in the evenings, but coffee & muffin/cereal/fruit were served (desk person handed to you) in the reception area.

very nice place to stay

friendly staff, HELPFUL front office, great location, very cozy and comfortable room, everything was great. Now, if the hotel could only do something about guaranteeing decent weather, that would be wonderful! 😁

Great harbors views but noisy

We enjoyed our stay but dang this hotel is noisy.We had 3rd floor king suite,
(One of the best rooms in hotel)Nice having balcony with view of harbor but unfortunately it’s right on Cabrillo.It was so nice sitting out and having a glass of wine so loved that!Toma restaurant diners were literally right below us and first night had rowdy,drunk diners below. I’m not complaining though. Just keep this in mind if you want to go to bed before 11pm.(The diners did leave before 11pm so didn’t impact us)The noise that did wake us was garbage trucks that came very early,around 5am, on Monday morning and traffic is really loud on street. Going in we knew staying right on street would be noisy but we thought it would be a bit quieter because it’s off-season and it was on a Sun/Mon night.Toma restaurant (below the hotel) had tons of tables and diners so just be aware.We aren’t sensitive to noise (until 11pm) so it didn’t bug us but sitting on balcony we can hear diner’s conversations lol
Not sure we’d stay again,not being able to sleep is kind of a deal breaker. The price was right though,we only paid little over $200 a night.
Breakfast wasn’t good-Cheerios,Blueberry or poppyseed muffin.
Hotel was a little outdated.Room was basic,nothing fancy, but for price not complaining!Pool was open until 9pm,limited to 6 guests.
We have been going to SB for last 25 years and noticed each time it seems to be a little more run down with increasing homeless.We did see some of them passed out on the grass areas in Hotel Milo late at night.We almost stayed there,glad we didn’t! We felt very safe at West Beach hotel and the staff was very friendly!

Cali Coast Road Trip

We totally enjoyed our stay at West Beach Inn. The people at the front desk were pleasant and welcoming and we felt safe during check-in. COVID protocols were communicated. Our room was clean, comfortable and in working order. The rooms have been refreshed but overall the hotel is a little worn around the edges. Our room had a nice view of the harbor and Stearns Wharf. We appreciated that the rooms have A/C…another hotel in the area does not…which can make it uncomfortable to sleep. With the sliding glass doors closed, we did not hear much traffic on Cabrillo Blvd. The location is very convenient to walk to restaurants in the area. (Highly recommend Brophy Brothers for clam chowder and fish and chips!) The garden area is well cared for and peaceful. It was very enjoyable to take morning walks in either direction along the water/Cabrillo Boulevard. The reduced (“Grab and Go”) breakfast was very nice. We appreciated there was no parking fee. We would definitely return!

New and refreshed

Rooms were newly refreshed in a contemporary beach-y manor; Pillows were super comfortable; staff were unfailingly polite and helpful; prices were fair (also, no “resort fee” or parking fee!). It’s an older facility but nicely remodeled rooms, many facing the harbor. Would definitely stay again.
