"Great room, great location, friendly and helpful"
DirecTV with DirecTV remote instead of the usual clunky hotel TV. Although you probably won't watch 5 min of TV because the hotel is perfectly located for easy access to the beach, state street, and the funk zone. Many excellent restaurants, wine tasting bars, and fun shops are easily accessible on foot. They have free parking and free wifi which makes […] everything so easy. Couldn't have been happier.

"Quaint and Cozy"
Within walking distance of everything. Great restaurants on the pier and in the marina which was across the street. Free wine and cheese was a great perk! We upgraded to a king room - highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not what I expected for the price - appeared to be a motel that had some upgrades to it. Nice view from outside - right across from the beach. easy parking and not a congested area. Inconvenient that there was no food on-site - but probably wouldn't have been an issue if I was not a single business traveler.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel near the ocean"
Great hotel for launching explorations of down-town or the beach. Santa Barbara is expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect location on the perfect walking beach"
We have stayed in Santa Barbara many times over the years. This was a really very positive experience overall - generous breakfast in a bright room; big, hot, hot tub; lovely outlook to garden pool and beach; wide (but public) balcony with deck chairs for reading in the sun or shade. we would return in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
People complained about the size of room. The room was very roomy and comfy. My only complaint would be that we reserved months in advance and we should vVe insisted on 3rd floor so we could actually see the Harbor, the second floor was hidden by bushes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, rooms are nice but a little expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean, Friendly Staff, Convenient Location"
After searching for a hotel for a 2-night getaway, we chose the West Beach Inn and were happy with our choice. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms (although smaller than some) were spotless, as was the entire property. It's in a great location, across the street from the beach and walking distance to State Street. We enjoyed our stay and will […] return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were pleasantly surprised with the location and the hotel.....could see the water from the lovely patio bridge! The room was small but very nice and clean. Updated bath and DirectTv. Park the car and walk the pier, beach and state street. Can't wait to go again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walk to the beach"
Nice place and friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, comfort, perks"
Across the street from the beach, a block from Stearn Pier, and next door to Toma, an outstanding restaurant, this location can't be beat. Our room was a bit small, but cozy, and our bed was so comfortable that we fell asleep before we meant to. The room amenities were upscale. The evening wine and cheese was a nice touch, as were the 24 hour brewed […] coffee and morning continental breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything you could want."
A pleasure. Really nice staff, restaurants close by, free wi fi, free breakfast and wine and biscuits in the evening... Stayed an extra night it was so good!Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was Spotless, new condition, with efficient use of space. Lacked nothing (fridge, hair dryer, iron etc). One tiny drawback-wall unit AC was a bit noisy but not a problem. The grounds were beautiful and well cared for. The pool was a friendly place to swim and spend daily breakfast or cocktail time. The staff was attentive and helpful. Directly […] across from a beach and a very short walk to many eateries and public transportation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Review of West Beach Inn"
We had a fabulous experience. The entire staff were outstanding and the facilities was wonderful! We will go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
Situated right by the beach and harbor so easy access. Close enough to State St but far enough away so don't have the noise from the tourists. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great continental breakfast and the wine and cheese every evening was wonderful! Would definitely go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel with easy access to everything"
Beautiful view of the harbor and beach. Quiet clean up to date rooms with free access to wifi. Having a refrigerator in the room was great. Patios facing the beach are the best from the third floor. Breakfast was there at 6 AM every morning with a nice array of muffins, bagels, fruit, coffee and juice. Easy access to restaurants the harbor and beach. […] A short walk to great shopping.

"Very nice. Close to pier and Harbor."
Hotel and view were above our expectations. Close to everything, pier, harbor, State Street. Everything was close, even trolleys if you don't want to walk. So much to see and do in Santa Barbara. The hotel pool and garden area were great after a long day to just relax.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to beach, restaurants and all amenities"
Our room had everything we needed, service was very nice, breakfast and happy hour fresh and tasty, pool and hot tub clean and attractive, staff very attentiveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average. Great location."
I thought this place was pretty average. Surprised by the great reviews. Location is awesome- right across the street from the beach and about 1/3 mile along from State St. It was clean, but bathroom was very tired/in need of updating. Very small room and kind of loud. We opened onto the courtyard but the rooms facing the beach (with a balcony) were […] way better. Pool was nice. Small but deep and perfect water temp. Overall pretty decent but nothing to write home about. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking Cabrillo St and the beach beyond. Our room was very clean, and the bed was the most comfortable we've ever had away from home. They provide wine and cheese in the evening and a continental breakfast in the morning. It's located midway between […] Stearn's Wharf and the Marina, where we like to have dinner at Brophy Bros. We will definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel overlooking the harbor"
Lovely room with a small terrace overlooking the harbor and the parade route for the annual fiesta. It was very comfortable and close enough to State Street and the Wharf to walk to everything, but away from the chaos and very quiet at night. We forgot an important item when we checked out and alert staff called us right away and mailed it to us the […] next day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place close to beach and Sterns wharf"
The room and view was lovely, clean and nice staff. We actually booked an extra night here and enjoyed the morning continental breakfast as well as afternoon wine/cheese. The only downfall is the bathroom was soooooo small. Was clean and updated but no room. The room itself was very clean and bed was really comfortable. We would definately recommend […] this hotel and stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I will defiantly stay at this hotel again. The location was perfect. Right across the street from a clean sandy beach, a very short walk to the pier and lots of restaurants. Just across the street from the Sunday art fair that is going on every Sunday. Morning breakfast at the hotel is just enough to get your day started, and its free. The evening is […] winded down by wine and cheese at the pool every evening and also free. Staff is super friendly and they even come around the rooms in early evening to see if you would like a dinner mint and more towels or shampoo. I was impressed. Everything is clean and well managed. The only thing that would be helpful to the hotel to change for us customers: the doors to the hotel rooms slam and are loud. This happens sometimes at 11pm up to 1pm. at night depending on when other customers are returning back to their hotel room. It will defiantly wake you if your sleeping. Slow hinges on the doors would be helpful. Last thing is the smoking. You are aloud to smoke all around the grounds. (except the pool) I don't smoke and had people smoking right outside my room. The doors are not totally air tight. You get my picture here? There should be smoking areas for these people that are not near other peoples rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location, Quiet, Safe and Relaxing"
Upgrade to the Oceanside room it is worth waking up every morning and seeing the ocean from balcony. Front desk staff very helpful. I went with my sixteen year old daughter and would stay again. Pool cleaned every morning and grounds swept and free of debris, very well kept. Close to many activities, the front desk tells you were the best fish is served […] and will answer any of your questions. If you love to exercise this is the place to be as across the street is sand volleyball, bicycle, jogging, running path. For the skateboarder also a skateboard park a few blocks away. The wine, crackers, cheese, grapes, and lemonade at five o'clock is offered everyday, and fresh fruit all day long. There of course is a complimentary breakfast. A quiet hotel with poolside chairs and tables for lounging or sunbathing. NOT a place for young adults who want to party. Ten to fifteen minute drive from the Santa Barbara airport. Enjoy! We will be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and convenient"
West Beach Inn was exactly what we were looking for: clean, and a short walk to the wharf, harbor restaurants and State st. and across the street from the beach! Pool was smaller than it appears in the picture and a lot of folks hang around it during the wine and cheese happy hour, though the pool itself was not crowded. Our King room was not huge but […] still spacious and we were happy to have a/c which is apparently a luxury in SB! Staff were friendly, only suggestion is clean the glass around the pool, the Biltmore keeps theirs spotless, makes an impact! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I wish that, given their breakfast and wine/cheese "tasting" events, that there were more chairs - a lot of us had to return to our rooms, rather than enjoying the ambiance we'd paid for, because of the lackGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you're headed to Santa Barbara, stay here!"
I have nothing but good things to say. Great staff, beautiful hotel in good condition, and perfect location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They allowed us to check in early and we were pleasantly surprised by the location of our room. Nice balcony and view.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a perfect place for our 2 night visit to Santa Barbara. Located right across from the beach and in town. Very nice for a beach front inn- bathrooms were very nice and our room had chairs outside to sit in. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was included - no hot food, but fine. Great wine & cheese for guests from 5-7.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time in SB staying at the West Beach Inn. We walked everywhere! The best thing we did and did it a few times was pay $.50 to ride the trolley up State Street to the top and meander down window shopping/shopping and EATING! Great food in SB. We can't wait to go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint Hotel conveniently located."
We would definitely consider staying at this hotel again. Very quaint, and conveniently located close to State Street, the Harbor and the Wharf (all within close walking distance). Staff placed us in a nice room with a view of the Harbor, beach, mountains and pool. Couldn't have asked for better!Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice view and everything was perfect. Made our trip worth it. Definitely would stay again soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and upgraded rooms. SB is always a great place for special occasions. Continental breakfast had enough of everything an the 2 hour evening wine & cheese/crackers is a plus. Initially we were in room 201 which is directly above the laundry room and the humming of machines was annoying so they moved us to a better room. Overall good ex […] perience.

"Pretty but don't leave anything..you won't get it"
Pretty, older property. Nice garden, pool area. There is one manager that, unfortunately needs to shower more often as when he was in the common/check in area, there was a distinct odor. The bed was comfortable. I left an expensive curling iron because, due to the older design of the room, the plug for it was inside a closet. Consequently I did not […] see it when packing. Called later and "nowhere to be found' even though I offered a reward of $50.00. A bit pricey for the experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I would stay here again, my room had ocean and mountain views.The entire hotel was very clean, room was great, comfy bed and pillows, quiet, and had great furniture on the deck/patio to enjoy a glass of wine!

Good breakfast and happy hour! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, overpriced motel"
You would think that for $240 you should get a room that is a bit better than a motel. And you will - you will get a renovated motel room. Other than that everything is almost perfect - the location is great, it is quite and the parking is convenient. The breakfast was small and cheap, but it is not a big deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This was exactly what I expected it to be"
It's a sight better than most of the mom and pop hotels in Santa Barbara, sure it's not the Fess Parker, but frankly I didn't like the breakfast the Fess Parker, and the breakfast here was fine. The nightly wine-bar was excellent, and the staff was nothing but courteous and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"West Beach Inn"
Thank you to all the friendly staff that helped us during our stay. Our stay at the West Beach Inn was great! Everything was super clean- room, garden, facility!

"Wonderful stay at West Beach Inn"
We had a wonderful 5 day stay at the West Beach Inn. The reason I gave the room a lower rating is because the air conditioning was quite noisy. Besides that the room was wonderful . We had the garden room and orange trees right by the terrace. The pool area was extremely well kept and the hotel offers complementary wine and cheese every afternoon from […] 5-7pm. Sometimes we were late and they gave us wine to bring to our room. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is well stocked and fresh. Coffee all day available. The location is fantastic. Right across the harbour , easy to reach famous State street and other locations by foot or tram. We had a lovely stay and would deffinatly come back.

"Beach front near State Street - Prime location"
Whether you are in SB for the beach or for shopping this is the place to go . The hotel is quite small but the rooms are a good size. Small pool overlooking the beach. 3 blocks from State St makes for an easy stroll and 3 blocks from the Brewhouse if you are in to very tasty local brews.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really liked the hotel. It was small and comfortable with all the conveniences we needed. The staff was very helpful and nice and you can't beat the location. Our room was very clean and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
