Great little hotel
After looking at Fess Parker Doubletree and Hotel Milo, chose West Beach Inn. Breakfast was good, not full of sugary sweets but with bagels, toast, boiled eggs etc, warm pool and large tiled hot tub, wine and cheese hour was fun. Free parking and staff very helpful, clean rooms and public areas. Definitely worth it!
As weather a bit cool for the beach, visited sea center, zoo, movie discovery museum and the mission, all worth it. Farmers market Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings, with lots of fruit tastings!
Went to Santa Claus beach and saw dolphins.
Ate at marina at Brophys for fish and lived Toma, very delicious with terrific kids menu, nice wine recommendations.
Next staying in Ojai at Blue Iguana Inn, nice pool and hot tub and short ride from Santa Barbara.
A little loud but nice.
Nice! Pleasant room with a private balcony. It is crazy how expensive Santa Barbara is, and this King size view room was no exception. BUT we didn’t have to pay for parking, it had a nice view, and we walked the harbor, marina, wharf and beach!! Loved the location, but had to keep our balcony door closed at night because of the noise. Biggest complaint I had was breakfast…muffins, croissants or scones would have been nice, even mini ones. I would stay there again.

Some much to offer!
The location is perfect, across the road from the beach and 2 blocks ro State Street (main road with shops and restuarants) and equal distance to the beautiful Marina with bars and restaurants and water sports. The rooms were large with a verandah looking over to the water. Small bathroom but we don’t spend long in there. Washing facilities which were easy and cheap plus handy. The pool was enjoyed and not too busy. Bonus is wonderful free wine, lemonade and cheese by the pool from 5-7pm each night…loved it! The free breakfast was good with bagels, cereal, porridge, fruit, toast, coffee and more. Also, vouchers for free bike ride along the beach and paddle boarding at the Marina…we loved them both. In addition free parking and wifi! What can I say, after travelling along the west coast and staying at places where they charge additional for everything, thus was refreshing!!!! Oh, the staff were super friendly and helpful too!!! Thank you and will be spreading the word.

Great place to explore Santa Barbara
Really enjoyed our stay at the West Beach Inn. It feels like a jazzy motel but with a cool edge.
Location is brilliant for exploring the harbour and State Street.
We were also pleasantly surprised by the pool which was lovely to relax by with
the complimentary Wine and Cheese served between 5-7pm.
We would definitely stay again

Where were these people?
So many great reviews that I just don’t understand. This is a Motel 6 by the beach. We tried to leave when we saw it but had booked through Booking.com and it would have cost us over $300. So we are here feeling like Tom Bodett is going to walk by any moment. Which would be a highlight!
