Great location, hospitality, and upkeep!

The hotel sits across the oceanfront street from the sandy beach and the water. The breakfest is quite complete with fresh fruit, yogurt, a selection of cereals, bagels, sweet rolls, muffins, coffee, and juices. The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Several family style restaurants were very close from a pancake house to pizza. A short walk to a trolley service put you in easy distance to a mulitude of great restaurants.

Great value in a pricey town

In town for a wedding and just needed a place to sleep that had a good location. We read the reviews on [...]and they did not dissapoint. Excellent service, well appointed rooms, very comfortable bed and an overall great value. We would definitely recommend West Beach Inn to anyone looking for a cute spot for a weekend get away

Excellent Hotel

It was a little less satisfying because we got one of the smaller rooms in the area. Actually, it got a little loud because of the Spring Breakers and kids running around. None the less, we still enjoyed the ocean view and access...as well as the complementary breakfast and cheese/wine. Great stuff!!

Stay at the West Beach Inn

Loved the view and spacious balcony in our ocean view room. The service was friendly, rooms clean and spacious enough to spread out. Bathroom was a little cramped but no one cared. Continental breakfast was fresh and generous and the evening wine and cheese reception was relaxed, plentiful, with enough variety to suit everyone. The jacuzzi was perfect and all in all this was the nicest place we stayed on our week long journey up the coast of California. I could have stayed 4-5 days and been extremely happy.

This Inn sits right across from the pier, to dining is plentiful to either walk or drive a short distance. It is also close to the main street leading to downtown Santa Barabra. Great location.

Couldn't have been better

We were checking out UCSD for our daughter. The location is perfect - right on the beach. Great service with beach chairs and umbrellas. Casual and friendly environment. The food was also good and reasonably priced. Rental kayaks on the beach were also a lot of fun. No complaints at all.

beachfront is spelled wrong

My sister and I loved the location of this hotel right across from the beach and not far from downtown. There were many restaurants in easy walking distance. We did a lot of hiking and birdwatching on this trip. On the beach right across from the hotel we saw a whimbrel, great egret, snowy egrets, marbled godwit, great blue heron, willets, and black skimmers. The hotel personnel were pleasant and helpful. The room was comfortable- great bed. We enjoyed having cereal, rolls and juice at the hotel for breakfast and fruit was available all day for snacks. Between 5 and 7 every day they provided wine with cheese and crackers. I would definitely stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Emilio's, just steps away from the hotel, gave us a coupon for a free (delicious) dessert when we checked into the hotel. We each had a beautiful salad for $10 and the free dessert for a dinner total of $21 at a lovely place.
