Across the street from sprawling beaches and scenic Santa Barbara Harbor, the West Beach Inn is the perfect place to explore all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Our central location means many of the city’s best restaurants, bars, and shops are just steps away. Our Mediterranean-style hotel features modern, spacious rooms and plenty of amenities.

Location, location, location!! A nice hotel for a very reasonable price. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Room was clean with ample towels and amenities. The pool area is very nice. We had a room in “the garden area” which had tables outside for relaxing with your group.

Nope, we are fine here! The Oil spill was in the "County" of Santa Barbara, up north of us, not here in town!

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. I think there are larger rooms....different styles, so I would imagine so.

"You have a choice of a 'harbor view' room or a (quieter 'garden view' room; we liked the quite in the back of the property."
"There are no quiet rooms if there is noise coming from the pool area as all rooms face the courtyard/pool or the parking lot."
"Double queens are large and comfortable."
"We really like the 2nd or 3rd floor facing the harbor and we prefer a balcony to enjoy our morning coffee!!"
"Room 316 was perfect for us."
