"Affordable but nice hotel, right near the beach."
The hotel was very clean, and pleasant. The hotel-room was more of a motel size, with the AC in the window, and exterior facing doors, but the room was clean and great for the price, compared to other beachfront hotels. We have no complaints. Its good for couples who are spending most of their time and money on the town or the beach.

"A great location!"
We booked two rooms for a weekend stay with our teen sons. The hotel is adorable and located right across the street from the beach and the harbor and a 3 walk block to Stearn's Wharf and State Street Shops. The free breakfast was great for the kids and the free wine and cheese in the afternoon was great for us! The staff was very friendly and the hotel well-maintained. There are more "luxurious" hotels in the area with spas and such, but you just can't beat this location and this price. Our kids loved the freedom of being able to just head over to the beach whenever they wanted. The pool and hot tub were a big hit as well.

"Great location, not so great a room."
The garden and grounds are lovely. The continental breakfast is poor for the price of the motel. The sink area was extremely inconvenient. The coffee pot, coffee, mugs, glasses, ice bucket, plastic glasses, etc. took up so much room, it was hard to find room to put our essentials. Narrow area around sink. The wood shelving was inconvenient. Long mirror useless because no light on that side of room, plus the TV stand and luggage rack were right in front of the mirror. Poorly planned room and frustrating. Light all on the side by the bed. Even the air conditioner was hard to reach with the table right in front and drapery hanging almost over it. Coul use updating. I think it was pricey for what we got, but the location was excellent.

"Awesome place!"
I can't imagine why the score is only 3.5 stars...this place is awesome. I was affordable (off season) and straight across from the beach. Heated pool, awesome jacuzzi, and beautiful rooms. We had a room right off their garden area which was very nice to see with the curtains open. The patio furniture around the seating areas is even new and comfortable. Multiple restaurants and the wharf are within walking distance. There are great running paths down the beach also - just across the street! Thumbs up. Not sure if they have "family friendly rooms" as we were traveling without the kids this time... but we'd love to stay again.

"Great location"
Great location! It is across the street from the beach. It is located between the harbor and Stern's Wharf. The grounds are well kept. There are fruit tress throughout the property, a nice pool, and hot tub. They served free breakfast in the morning and Wine & Cheese every afternoon. I had a room close to the street, the pool, and the office so it was a little noisy but I had a parking spot in front of my door. The room was very clean. I had trouble with my shower and the staff fixed the problem immediately. All staff were very friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed five nights on a family vacation. The room was clean although the basic construction left something to be desired (the exterior door for instance had a one inch gap at the bottom. Enjoyed the company of fellow guests at the eveniong wine and cheese party.

"Spruced up ancient Motel"
Normally stay at a much nicer resort in SB but it was spring break weekend and everything was booked. This is obviously a 3 story motel built 60 years ago and freshened up with some paint. I'd never stay here again. The Motel feel just isn't for me. I'd have prefered to stay in an equally priced Hyatt or marriot. *Pool is tiny *Room is noisy and only has window AC *Tons of noise outside from other motels in the area *Parking is tough *Wifi is great

"Beautiful gardens, great location"
We stayed here for three nights for a quick get away. The location of the hotel is wonderful across from the waterfront. It is easy to walk to restaurants, the piers, the beach, etc. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the courtyard. I really liked the set of chairs they have outside the rooms. From our chairs we could even see Sterns wharf. As for the room, the beds are hard so if one likes a hard bed, they will be pleased, I do not. The closet is spacious. There were enough hangers for my clothes but not my husbands. There is a refrigerator in the room and the coffee in the room was quite good. The breakfast was limited..pastries, toast, bagels and cereal so we chose to eat out after the first day. That said, it was better then the alternative of nothing. The staff was nice and friendly. The pool looked nice but we were too busy to use it. The grounds were beautiful, lots of flowers in bloom such as Bird of Paradise, Angels Trumpet and Hibiscus. My only other complaint about the room would be about the positioning of the bathroom. If the door to the room is open or the curtains...one can see directly into the bathroom. I believe some of the other rooms facing the water may have that layout but not the ones facing the courtyard.

"Nice hotel near the harbor"
While the map indicates the road in front is a big avenue, it's actually very quite and easy to cross (cars are very pedestrian aware). The walking paths along the beach and harbor are very inviting, and have lots of activity. The hotel is near the State Street area where you can catch a bus to go shopping. The harbor has a great restaurant, Brophy's (recommended by the hotel staff). Breakfast was simple, but adequate to get you started on your day.

Four female family members, two Moms and two daughters, stayed at the West Beach in on our scenic drive from LA to San Francisco. We loved our walks to the end of the pier and it was mild enough to sit on our room's balcony. We really enjoyed having coffee, tea, and fruit available at all times☺️

"Nice convenient hotel near the beach"
West Beach Inn looks like a beach motel from the outside but the rooms are nice and modern. It's convenient to the beach and really close to many fun areas of Santa Barbara. There aren't a tons of bells and whistles but it's clean, easy to get to and comfortable for a moderate price. My only issue is that because the rooms exit to an exterior and not an interior hallway, the noise level at night as a little higher than a standard hotel.

"over all great place"
The hotel's accommodations were great, just a few blocks off State Street and the warf. Overall great location and amenities. Breakfast is offered until 10 a.m. and wine and cheese in the evening. It was great having those options, however, I would recommend swapping out a few items for a bit higher quality. The bagels were hard and not too tasty. I think adding fresh cut fruit would go a long way. Also the wine and cheese were not great quality, just average store purchased cheese, cheese whip and crackers.

"A Little Gem"
We stayed there for one night on a trip down the California coast. I was very impressed with the hotel. It is not flashy, but the rooms are very large, recently renovated, and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located on the edge of a picturesque neighborhood looking out to the beach. It was easy to find and about a five minute walk to the wharf, where there are shops and restaurants. From the hotel you can see the ocean and pleasure boats on one side and the beautiful mountains around the other three sides. I felt very safe walking around at night. I highly recommend this hotel, and intend to return on future trips, hopefully for longer stays.

You are truly made to feel like a welcomed guest with complimentary wine, cheese, and crackers along with bedside chocolates in the evening, not to mention a deluxe continental breakfast in the morning. The bed is very comfy, and the windows open to allow fresh air. Only drawback of my room is that the only comfy seating was outside on the balcony.

"An ok stay"
Location was fantastic but had multiple problems with staff. In one instance I asked what time breakfast was and was told it was until 11 but it was only until 10 so we missed it. Then on the day of departure a maid walked into the room without knocking. Good thing we were dressed. And then my room key card was deactivated before I was done packing up to leave. It's not that the staff were rude, unfriendly, or bad to me, they just weren't 100%. I didike the wine and cheese hour as well as the fruit and water in the lobby 24/7. And I very much appreciate the complimentary bottle of water in the room. Not enough hotels do that nowadays.

"Almost 5 stars!"
We received an upgrade to a room with a balcony and view of the harbor. This would have been ideal had the weather not been stormy; coffee on the balcony in the morning. The room was very large and the bedding was comfortable. This is an old building with upgrades to décor. Bathroom was small and difficult to maneuver; open door made sink inaccessible. Free continental breakfast and evening cheese and wine was what made this hotel the right choice for us.

"Good location; shocking disregard for security"
The location and landscaping were good, as were the pool and spa. Our windows (large enough for someone to get inside) were left open by housekeeping staff both days, and when I expressed concern to the desk staff she told us that room windows are left open routinely due to the humidity, that there is no crime in Santa Barbara (!), and that no guest had ever complained before. No apology or acknowledgement that the guest should be the one who does/does not leave windows open. Also, the afternoon wine was watered down so much that it was unpalatable. For a hotel that aspires to a higher rating, these flaws are unfortunate.
