Just a wonderful hotel in a wonderful town and a perfect location facing the beach and sea and near the pier. Staff were super friendly as we're the residence of Santa Barbara the rooms are amazing as we're the facilities. Stay else where at your peril

My husband and I stayed at the West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara. From the moment we entered the lobby to check in we were very pleased. We were greeted warmly and given great info on locations of restaurants and places to see and also about the best way to get to the Courthouse where we were attending a wedding....

Location was great for walking to sites and restaurants along the harbor. It was a longer stroll to the shops on State Street but it was doable. The room was comfortable. Weather did not cooperate so we never used the pool or spa. We also skipped the breakfasts.

Thank you for your positive review - that was a true DOWNPOUR during your visit, wasn't it??!!! Santa Barbara desperately needs the rain, but sheesh! Still, I'm pleased that you enjoyed your room - our location can't be beat, we are Blessed, indeed! See you next time and will order sunshine for your stay. :)

We really liked this place: very quiet, tidy, swimming pool, jacuzzi but for the person who likes to eat proper breakfast (not only sweets) this is just not a right place. If you will go to eat between 7 and 9 do not expect any ham or cheese. They will bring it after 9. I have no idea why, but...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. We appreciate your positive comments and constructive feedback about our breakfast as we are constantly learning what our guests enjoy and trying to balance that with no kitchen facilities! Thankfully the sweets have been replaced with hard boiled eggs, yogurt/granola parfaits, toast and bagels with cream cheese...

The very helpful guy at the Santa Barbara Visitor Centre made several hotel suggestions, all of which were close together in the West Beach area. We liked the look of the West Beach Inn, close to the harbour, so we stopped in to check availability. We were offered two options, both of which were well in excess of the rate...

During the rain, we stayed in Santa Barbara at the West Beach. The gardens and grounds were beautiful. The hotel staff was very informative of areas prone to mudslides and helped us find ways to see the sights despite the weather. Both the complimentary breakfast and evening wine & cheese were well appreciated. Our corner room was bright and welcoming....

Thank you for your review! Ugh, the rain... but we need it so badly with our ongoing drought. I'm glad the staff was able to steer you around and that you were able to still enjoy our slice of Paradise. Hopefully we will see you next time!

I arrived in the early evening to check in at West Beach Inn. Even in the dark I was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful the grounds were. I originally booked a single queen room but wavered on weather I would prefer a double queen room. The gentlemen was very accommodating and offered to show me the two rooms so I...

Hi! I can't wait to pass your positive comments along in our next staff meeting - it is what they look forward to most and thrive off of the feedback. We all enjoyed cooing over your beautiful baby, too. ♥ Thank you for your kind comments.

The room was spacious, well lighted and clean. The beds were comfortable. Wifi was easy to get on to. Coffee and cosmetic products were available. My husband and I were stunned at the huge problem SB has with homeless people. They are on every corner. I grew up in SB and this wasn't an issue even 10 years ago.

We are always glad to hear from our guests - we have the best beds!!! Yes, the homeless issue in town is a sensitive one, but one that I know our leaders are continually attempting to address. We enjoyed hosting you and look forward to seeing you again soon. ♥
