Great hotel - excellent service

We spent one night with my girlfriend in this hotel.

The hotel is in front of the sea and close to the city center (5 minutes walking).
In general everything was great.

We would like to remark the outstanding service from Jou at the reception desk. He made us feel very welcome.

Location, location, location!!
A nice hotel for a very reasonable price.
Beds and pillows were comfortable. Room was clean with ample towels and amenities.
The pool area is very nice. We had a room in “the garden area” which had tables outside for relaxing with your group. Very quaint and nice.

My partner and I have been back from our holiday over a month now (3 weeks driving around cali coast). And I have to be honest, my heart is still aching for this dreamy hotel.
We fell in love with Santa Barbara and therefore fell in love with The West Beach Inn. I mean how could you not.
The whole atmosphere of Santa Barbara is like somthing out of a great romance novel.
We arrived at the hotel afternoon Sunday the 9th of sept. Our room was not ready but they put a rush on it. We sat in the patio area by the pool and took in the hotel grounds while we waited.
Once checked in we were on the 2nd floor of the part of the hotel that overlooks the inner hotel grounds.
The rooms we think have recently been renovated and are really nice. The rooms are not big but they are big enough and cosy.
All amenities you could need. The room had air con however the machine was a bit loud but we turn our air con off through the night anyway.
Just outside our room on the walkway were two very comfy chairs with a little table which we made use of on an evening before going to bed. The fact other guests walk past isn’t an issue, it still feels very private and if you can’t manage a simple hello to your neighbour …just stay inside haha.
The hotel offers happy hour complimetory cheese and wine in the reception pool area every evening. Due to how our days timed we didn’t attend but a lovely touch.
Breakfast was also down in reception pool area, really good choice of cerial, breads, pastry. And plenty indoor outdoor seating.
Pool area really nice, half shade half sun I would say. Spent a nice couple of hours there. Didn’t get crowded.
The location of this hotel is such a massive selling point. Stones throw from beach and harbour, 10 minutes walk to the pier.
We really loved this hotel and town. I really would pack up now and move there if I could. You never know, maybe we will one day.

Great hotel ‘a little gem’

We really liked this hotel. Great location right by the beach. We were invited to a cheese and wine reception which was nice and served some nice food and drink. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Nice pool and jacuzzi area. Would definitely recommend. Short walk to the pier and about 20 min walk to main restaurants and bars.

We loved our visit at West Beach Inn! Comfortable, clean, great service, nice pool area plus breakfast & wine & cheese

We were upgraded to a harbor view room which was very nice. The room is pretty large, we had plenty of room. Our room, the pool area and lobby were all very clean. We enjoyed the pool each day. The pool is heated, just enough to still be refreshing and there is a hot tub. Wine, cheese and crackers were offered every evening and a nice perk before heading out to dinner. The manager was very helpful in helping us to map out a drive through the mountains and neighborhood.
