Good place all around

The room wasn't large, but was clean, with high quality fixtures, good mattress and linens, nice art, etc. We had a fridge in the room, coffee maker, etc. Big TV. Staff was nice, location is great for beach and town access.

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.

Ideal Location with comfort

This hotel is conveniently located right across from the beach and walking distance to downtown. Great access to restaurants and shopping. This is also a great location for a runner - you can run up and down the coast and you are conveniently located to an amazing track. The beds are comfy and the bathroom had lots of space. They had a wonderful wine & cheese happy hour each night and the food options @ breakfast included healthy options. The pool is great too! I will return for sure!

Great Experience

The West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara is a very nice small hotel. This property had been recently updated, with tasteful European touches in cabinetry & fixtures, pillowtop mattresses, nice comforters and extra pillows. Just accross the street from the beach, the location was walking distance to The Warf, the harbor, State Street, and wonderful restaurants.

Very accommodating

West Beach Inn is well located with an electric bus @ $0.25 a trip / person running a limited distance along the lakeshore and into the main shopping area of Santa Barbara. Being more petite, the updated, modern sink was a little high. To have a well light room, all the lights had to be turned on. The staff could not have been more helpful!

Restaurants were along the lakeshore and all the way into town. There were two wharfs with eating & shopping accommodations. There are multiple beaches with easy access. There is a yacht club for boating excersions, boat rentals, etc. . . . There is a zoo at the end of the bus line . . . lots of fun !
