West Beach Inn, a Coast Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is great and the staff was on point, but the hotel is overrated. Our room had a view of the water, but was poorly sound rated so we heard all of the workers at 4am getting their boats ready. The shower did not have a light inside the tub so it was dark. The handle that turned the water on was not all together so I had to hold the handle when turning on the shower.

Pleasant staff very accommodating -great location - would recommend.

Hotel room dollars just don't go as far in SB...that being said, this is my new favorite place to stay. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and updated. Checkout wasn't until noon. AWESOME location and view! Quiet room despite being in a busy area. Breakfast and wine daily.

Love this hotel. Second stay and looking forward to staying there again next year!

Great location, enjoyed complimentary wine in the evening. Good room but very uncomfortable sagging bed - will not return for this reason as I wasn't able to sleep

This hotel is in a great location, only walking distance to state street and the pier. My husband and I have stayed there twice and love it. The rooms are very clean, a little small but was not a issue to us since we spend most of our day shopping and at the pier.

Save for their not having any extra razors at the front desk (I had to go across to the hotel next door), this place was great. Really clean and modern interior, which surprised us as it must have been an older building.

Staff was fantastic, wine and cheese UN the evening was a nice touch, pool and hot tub were great, and it was a very easy walk to Stearns Wharf. Will be back!

Had a great stay at the West Beach Inn, and our Harbor View was beautiful. Enjoyed the short walk to restaurants and State Street. Highly recommend West Beach Inn.

nice big rooms -great location -friendly help --old fashioned but updated motel

Driving up the coast from San Diego to San Francisco.Staff was friendly and very helpful. Pricing of room was very reasonable.Breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese at night.Walked across the street to ocean and restruants.

Great location. Clean rooms. Friendly helpful staff

Hotel and room were very nice. Great location, enjoyed the wine and breakfast offered as well. Easy walk to anyplace we wanted to go.

For years we've stayed at Hotel Milo (formerly Hotel Oceana# just down the street.... but the last few times, we've had problems with the rooms, the breakfast, etc. So, we decided it was time to try a new place. West Beach Inn was a very nice surprise! Updated, quiet room overlooking their courtyard, with the ocean beyond. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Limited but quick #and free# continental breakfast. Prices comparable to others we've stayed in in SB. Walking distance to the restaurants on the pier, as well as State Street and downtown. Easy #free) parking. Guess we've found our new "favorite" for all those SB trips we make during the year.

Great location - right across the street from the beach and super close to the harbor and Stearns Wharf. The Inn is lovely with tons of upgrades at what once used to be a pretty basic property. Little extras like bathrobes, in-room refrigerator, chocolates, definitely elevated the stay!

When we arrived our room wasn't quite ready which was disappointing considering it was 430 in the afternoon but that was really the only blip at all. The lobby was clean and the pool and Jacuzzi area was nicely kept up. There was a complimentary wine and cheese/cracker offering from 5-7 which was a nice touch and the included breakfast had a wide variety to choose from as well and they kept everything well stocked and fresh which was nice. The beds were amazing, super comfortable with nice pillows and coverings. The bathroom is incredibly small but honestly being across from the beach and having a great nights sleep is so much more important I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

have been here before and are always happy with our experience love the remodel and the staff is great

I loved staying at this hotel. A simple complementary breakfast, and nightly wine and cheese hour just added to the value! Even late in April we were able to enjoy the pool and hot tub. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful, especially with suggestions for what to do in the area. My boyfriend wished there was a workout facility, although we were close to a biking/running path he took advantage of. My only mark down was I have slept on more comfortable beds in various hotels. They were comfortable, I slept good, but I did miss my own bed.

We normally stay at the other end of Cabrillo Blvd. but chose this end instead. We were quite pleased with the hotel. The room was comfortable and the grounds very pretty. We would stay there again.

Location was great, everything else ordinary, attitude of staff varied. One was very rude, but the rest were OK. Was it worth it? I guess so. Will I stay there again? Probably not.
