Our location

A Relaxed SoCal Getaway

Ideally situated steps from the beautiful beach, our hotel offers easy access to Stearns Wharf, Santa Barbara Yacht Harbor and other Santa Barbara landmarks. 

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.

Welcome change of scene

After months of staying isolated at home, my husband and I craved a change of scene. We booked a weekend at West Beach Inn, a hotel we have stayed in many times. The staff were welcoming and safety protocols were in place. While there were limitations to using the pool area and only a basic staff served breakfast, we greatly enjoyed our stay, The outside areas were cleaned frequently and all looked safe.

Romantic getaway

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid July. The hotel was great regardless of covid! Updated rooms, very clean, right across the street from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the pier. Would definitely recommend & will be back!
