Weekend Stay

Be prepared to pay a hotel price for a motel styled room. Room was clean and had the basics but could use some updating. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Twenty-four hour coffee and tea was available. The afternoon wine and cheese offerings were a great touch. The location was excellent for area attractions.

Standard

This hotel is ok. Most hotels in Santa Barbara are overpriced. The hotel is old, and if you don't have a room with a view of the ocean/harbor I wouldn't stay here. The view of the harbor/ocean isn't the best (compared to other hotels down the street) because there is a large marina parking lot in the way. Rooms are better then you would expect compared to the outside of the hotel. The hotel has a great location. The harbor and beach are just across the street.

Lovely inn plus a great value

Just a couple of blocks from State Street across from the beach and Stearn's Wharf it was the perfect location for us. Very pretty grounds, clean, updated rooms. The breakfast selection of bagels, danish, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee, as well as the wine and cheese in the evening make this a great value. We plan on staying here again.

Great location, big room, nice

We were very pleasantly surprised with this find. Room was huge. Bathroom was small but nice. Location was ideal, across Cabrillo from the beach and walkable to State Street shops, etc. Staff was nice and helpful. Highly recommend it.

Wonderful romantic weekend!

Our stay at the West Beach Inn could not have been more perfect. From the excellent service to the fantastic location, the weekend was such a delight. We will definitely return in the future. Management and staff were knowledgeable and quick to please.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you love seafoods, the Enterprise Sea Food has the best selections. And, you will not experience a service better than theirs. The steaks at Holdren's are good, but service sucks. We were the only Asian couple in there and they ignored us most of the time, unless we call them. Not even a goodbye thank you from their servers/order takers and receptionist. They even managed to mixed up our orders.

Nice place to stay

I went to Santa Barbara to sell my leather goods at the Arts & Crafts Show. I stayed at the West Beach Inn - It was a wonderful place. The staff is very friendly, rooms a very clean & beach is located across the street. You can see the ocean & pier from the balcony. There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance. The main pier is only a 15 minute walk away. There is a electric shuttle at the pier that will take you down town. My room was cleaned every morning promptly. They have FREE quickie breakfast food & drinks in the morning & FREE wine & cheese in the evening. The West Beach Inn made my business trip a pleasure. I would recommend this place to everyone.
