The Inn at East Beach, Santa Barbara
Motel quality at a Hilton price - avoid
Overall I was very disappointed with my stay at The Inn at East Bay. The staff was pleasant with me, but I witnessed an argument with another guest while I waited to check in over the cost of parking not having been clarified ahead of time. I wasn't aware of this either, but wasn't willing to spend the time or energy over $10. The room was not air conditioned, as it was listed. I was very concerned that my key unlocked both the exterior gate and the door to my room, meaning that if someone else stayed on my floor their key would also unlock my door. The fridge was not clean, and the bathroom was in severe need of attention - stains on the floor and walls and part of the toilet seat was cracked.

Good price, great location
Overall very good, Wifi was pretty slow in our room. Free breakfast was simple but perfect, close to the beach (5m walk) room was much bigger than I tought.

Good stay at the Inn at the East Beach
Nice Inn with good status of the facilities. OK breakfast buffet. Negative though was a $10 charge for the parking. Walling distance to the beach and pier.
Mikael, us1 night trip
The Inn at East Beach, Santa Barbara
Was in town for less than 12 hours for work- checked in late to the hotel to find that parking was an additional charge. Then when I got up to my room- it had a weird smell- the bathroom (carpeted floor) was damp and was possibly the reason for the smell. When I went to use the desk to check my work emails- the desk was super dusty- like they haven't wiped down that area in a while. Then the bed was very lumpy- it was just me in a king- i had to try to sleep in the middle so i didn't fall into the dip in the mattress. I used to stay at this hotel years ago for work- and then had been priced out of it for a while- so when i saw that there was a good price- i decided to check it out again. It is a great location right next to the beach- but i won't be staying here again. IT was just too dirty and the bed was uncomfortable.. I also remember there was a way better breakfast offering than there is now. I guess the charm has worn off from years ago.
