Just a wonderful hotel in a wonderful town and a perfect location facing the beach and sea and near the pier. Staff were super friendly as we’re the residence of Santa Barbara the rooms are amazing as we’re the facilities. Stay else where at your peril

In for a wedding
My husband and I stayed at the West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara. From the moment we entered the lobby to check in we were very pleased. We were greeted warmly and given great info on locations of restaurants and places to see and also about the best way to get to the Courthouse where we were attending a wedding. The rooms are nicely updated, the pool is heated year round , and wine cheese and crackers are served every evening! The lobby is so quaint and is also where a continental breakfast is served everyday. There are cozy robes in to enjoy and turn down service. At each room there are 2 chairs and a little table where you can enjoy the sunset with your glass of wine. We thought that was a nice touch. We would love to stay here again!

Great location,Good Room
Location was great for walking to sites and restaurants along the harbor. It was a longer stroll to the shops on State Street but it was doable. The room was comfortable. Weather did not cooperate so we never used the pool or spa. We also skipped the breakfasts.
very very nice place but booring breakfasts
We really liked this place: very quiet, tidy, swimming pool, jacuzzi but for the person who likes to eat proper breakfast (not only sweets) this is just not a right place. If you will go to eat between 7 and 9 do not expect any ham or cheese. They will bring it after 9. I have no idea why, but it is annoying. If they will invest in breakfast they could be excellent.
Comfortable, Well Located and More
The very helpful guy at the Santa Barbara Visitor Centre made several hotel suggestions, all of which were close together in the West Beach area. We liked the look of the West Beach Inn, close to the harbour, so we stopped in to check availability. We were offered two options, both of which were well in excess of the rate advised by the Visitor Centre. However, once I mentioned the price quoted by the Visitor Centre, the receptionist willingly matched it. After all, it was the hotel that had advised the room rate to the Visitor Centre earlier that day.
Our king bed room was comfortable and spacious. There was adequate space on the granite vanity top. The glass-enclosed shower provided a strong jet and easy to control temperature. In the bedroom a welcome feature was the comfortable pillows. The TV control box appeared to offer some sophisticated features beyond simple channel changing, but we didn’t explore them. Since it was wet and foggy, we were not tempted to try the pool, but it looked inviting. We could imagine taking a dip and enjoying a poolside drink among the citrus and palm trees.
The unexpected bonus was the complimentary cheese and wine provided between 5 and 7pm in the lobby. A nice touch. With a typical continental breakfast included as well, we left feeling satisfied with the quality we had received for the price and good memories of our night in Santa Barbara.
