Lovely hotel, good value for money
We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a road trip between LA and San Francisco.
It was a friendly hotel with a pool and parking set just across the road from the beach and the harbour. It was very well placed to either walk into the main part of the beautiful Santa Barbara or to explore the waterfront area with it’s sandy beach and impressive yacht-filled harbour.
The room was very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. This included a lovely soft bed, air conditioning and free wi-fi.
Overall a great stay and much more reasonable price-wise than some of the other hotels in the area.

Spacious, quiet, clean room. Great TV w/ cable. Free parking. Right across from harbor. Room faced harbor. Nice patio outside room for AM coffee and AM paper. Several good restaurants within walking distance. Pier and marina easy walks with God. Restaurants. Can ride local shuttles to StateStreet, which is also within walking distance for the hearty. Excellent restaurant next door – Tomas. Would definitely stay again, although a bit pricey.

Beachside hotel with easy walking to main attractions
Stayed for 4 nights in lovely Santa Barbara. West Beach Inn is in a great position opposite the marina and beach. Easy walking to good restaurants next the marina, and about 20 mins into the main shops and restaurants, although you can get the trolley. There is free parking on site. The rooms are small but well equipped, with a nice balcony overlooking the pool and view of the beach. Usual American continental breakfast. Would definitely recommend.
THE place to stay in Santa Barbara
My family and I were travelling through California and added a stop in Santa Barbara at the last minute. (SOOO glad we did, what a great town!) We called last minute and got a great deal on the NORTH SUITE of this hotel. The suite had it’s own private entrance, a HUGE living room/dining room and a great bedroom. They had a cot in one of the closets. The kitchen had everything one would need and the huge table sat six. Very nice accommodations.
The pool area was nice and ocean front (more on what ocean front means in Santa Barbara in in minute) The pool wasn’t massive but was still nice. The lobby had free coffee, tea and water all day but also had a nice breakfast in the morning.
The location was great. The hotels that are ocean front are across a street from the beach. Don’t be intimidated by this because Santa Barbara has about the friendliest drivers ever and they stopped to let you cross the street no problem. So, this hotel is directly in between the Pier and the Harbor. Easy walking distance to either of these especially since there is a nice wide walking path. Both of these places are a must see with some shops and places to eat but also, just nice views. Don’t go to the Harbor at high tide because you will get very wet and the walkway is pretty slippery. Lesson learned.
You can walk to State Street from this hotel, just a little bit of a hike BUT there is a trolley that runs down State Street. So, if you walk to State Street get on the opposite side of the street and catch the trolley down if you want to.
State street by the way is where the shops/bars/restaurants are.
