Great Location! Old Property!

The location can not be beat..right across the street from the beach, and very close to State Street. We had a harbor view room with a gorgeous view.. The staff were nice. There is a small wine and cheese reception daily, as well as a decent breakfast (juice, coffee, pastry, yogurt, cereal, fruit, bagels..). The property is very old. The elevator is super tiny with an odor. There were areas of mildew on the bathroom, and the linens had a few stains on them. There's no gym. The room is nicely appointed and fairly spacious. The Jacuzzi is nice. Parking is good. We basically needed the room for sleeping, so I did not fret about the room.

Great visit!

We found the staff very helpful suggesting locations and ways of getting around Santa Barbara. The location was central, and handy to public transportation. The room was very clean and the service was excellent. We plan to stay here again.

Nice Stya

the hotel is located conveniently close to all the touristy places. front lobby staff was good and generous enough to give a room upgrade. I had a nice view from my room. rooms were kept clean. Only downside (if any) i notices was the hotel walls are too thin and you hear neighbor room noises.

Cozy, little get away..

Loved it! Nice view, comfortable room, great staff, and very clean. The only downfall was that the bed was a little uncomfortable but besides that it was great. Totally recommend people to stay here!

Great location for the price

My boyfriend and I chose West Beach Inn as the hotel for our anniversary weekend in Santa Barbara. We loved the location - it was close enough to State Street (2 1/2 blocks) yet far enough away from the crowds of State St. The electric trolley runs in front of the hotel (every 30 min) or you can walk the 2 1/2 blocks to State St to catch the trolley every 15 min. It is conveniently located less than a mile from the train station so we walked to the station on our way home. They offer wine and cheese each nice which is an added bonus. The room was nice and comfy but appeared to be a bit aged - the shower and bathroom in particular. As a result some things did not look exceptionally clean but it was a result of the age of the bathroom. The hotel was a great location for a decent price compared to other ocean-view hotels.
