We showed up early in the afternoon and the staff had no problem letting us check in early and get to our room. We had room 132, and it was great. Right above the pool, I was tempted to flash back to my teenage years and jump from the balcony into the deep end. The set up of the place...

My partner and I stayed here on our stopover from San Fran to LA. We initially intended on only staying one night but were won over by the fantastic beach location and amazingly friendly staff so booked for another night. Great breakfast - 'grab a tray and fill it up and then come on back for more' was my introduction!...

This was our pitstop between SF and LA. We got in to the most friendly greetings of Christina and check in was so fast and efficient. I got out of reception under 5 mins with dinners recommendation, room keys, direction to car park, quarters for machine and where/when breakfast will be happening. The room was huge and beautiful. Whoever decorated...

Hop, skip and jump from East Beach, which was a huge plus. Loved the staff; Frank and Christina were terrific. Very good continental breakfast. Clean rooms and comfy beds. We all slept well. Wish there was a hot tub to go with the pool. Only minor complaint is that the toilet paper was as thin as you'll find anywhere. I...

The facility is obviously older - but it appears a lot of thought has been given to upgrading the fixtures, bedding, window coverings, etc. And the owner gave us a very warm greeting and went to a lot of effort to make us feel welcome. But the lack of a desk - or any kind of table - was a...

This is a great place, nice big rooms with a fireplace, big bathroom and a large dressing room. Frank - the manager is great, very funny and full of helpful tips. The only down side is it's a little out of the way for the main part of town.

My SIL lives in SB so we travel here once a year. The hotel we used to stay at changed owners and raised their rates. I'm not totally in love with Inn at East Beach. Frank was wonderful! Friendly, great with my son. Breakfast in the morning was amazing. All this for the reasonable price of my night stay? Such...

When you arrive at the Inn at East Beach, you’ll be greeted by Frank. Frank IS the Inn at East Beach. You’ll get a warm welcome like an old friend and more information about Santa Barbara than can possibly fill a few days. Located just one block from the beach, the Inn is a renovated motel. It has been very...

I stayed at the Inn at East Beach the night before and after my wedding, and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer! Upon arrival, my bridesmaid and I were greeted warmly by the owner, and given detailed lists of activities and discounts in Santa Barbara (we are local, so we knew of most things, but it was...

We started our visit with a welcome by Frank. He is gracious and warm and sets the tone for the visit. We got to our room late in the evening and were pleased with our electric fireplace/heater and cozy bed with lots of pillows. Although the building is older, they have clearly worked hard to address details and their mid...
