Selected this Inn based on reviews. We were expecting basic accommodations and were pleasantly surprised by the little extras. The room had a balcony overlooking the marina, a mini refrigerator, complimentary coffe and bottled water in the room, thick terry bathrobes, turn down service and chocolate candy on the night tables! We have had these treats at high end hotels...

This Coast Hotel looks more like a former motel that has tried to convert itself. The room was very small, but nicely furnished. It was difficult to move around much. The bathroom was good sized but spartan. The courtyard rooms are situated with front doors that guests must walk in front of so there is a lack of privacy. There...

This is a good hotel, well located on the beach front in SB: quiet and calm. Easy walking distance to the town centre with a good selection of eating places. Breakfast, available in the hotel lobby was not up to much

Spent a couple of months researching hotels and decided on West Beach Inn due to the location, modern rooms, free parking and breakfast (which is what you want when you're getting up early and making the most of the day!). The price was extremely...

Perfect spot to make "home" while visiting Santa Barbara. It's small size and convenient location made it an easy choice over the bigger, more commercial establishments. The front desk staff was very efficient, and we were in the room in minutes. Our 3rd floor, harbor front room was very clean and updated with all the conveniences. The Pier is a...

After a 6 hour drive down from Vegas, the sat nav took us to the door. No queues, straight in. Easy parking. The lift is a bit small but we got the luggage up. The room was a good size on the 3rd floor with a sea view. There is a road between the hotel and the beach but its...
