Hotel was very clean (except the window frames/sills). A lot of attention paid to very small details in terms of exterior appearances. The staff were amazing. I had a "Garden Room" on the 2nd Floor. The room was clean w/contemporary furnishings. The room and bed were small (for the price), (for the price of a Marriott you expect a little...

We stayed there on a Friday night (one night only - no 2 night min. like others) and loved it. It was far nicer than a usual "mote"l with lots of extra touches usually found in a more upscale resort. The room was large and included nice furnishings, down pillows, robes and was VERY clean. The staff was very helpful...

My husband and I had a great stay at this hotel while in Sanata Barbara for a wedding. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is located right across from the beach. Great Happy Hour and good breakfast. I highly recommend a stay of any length at the West Beach Inn.

We spent one night in Santa Barbara at the West Beach Inn and found it to more than meet our needs. The room was not luxurious, however it was spacious, comfortable and clean, the bed was also comfortable. The wifi in the room worked well and the breakfast was simple but adequate, being a selection of fruit, toast, cereals, pastries...

Just arrived at the hotel, it's spotlessly clean, we were offered free wine and cheese reception, chocolates in our room, coffee etc. Just a lovely place. I can't see any negative anyone could leave this hotel. Thanks guys.

We needed somewhere to stay in Santa Barbara and after a quick look on trip advisor, we decided to book West Beach Inn - I wasn't really expecting much to be honest; I thought it would be a typical motel. I couldn't have been more mistaken though. The lobby area was clean and the check in was fast. We were...

Stayed here one night en route from SF to LA. Great location, close to beach and wharf. Expected a motel but found it to be much nicer, great pool area and grounds. Would definitely stay here again. Thoroughly recommend the Italian restaurant next door.

We went to Santa Barbara in April 2013 for my nieces graduation and we were a large family group the West Beach Inn proved to be economical. We upgraded our room which I think was a good decision because some of the rooms face the car park ours fortunately had a nice terrace with a view of the beach and...
