We stayed at The Inn at East Beach April 17 to April 20, 2017. The room was comfy, cozy and clean. Our room had a fireplace which came in handy when drying our clothes after getting caught in a down pour on our morning beach walk. The hotel is a very short walk to the beach and the zoo. I...

$150 Thursday $250 Friday located 1 block from the beach behind the Hyatt. A typical hotel in Santa Barbara costs $350+ It's a nice location, we were room 134 so we even had an ocean view. The staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Beautiful walk to State St. 1 1/2 miles. The Inn looks nice from the outside but the...

We stayed for 3 nights (room 122) based primarily on price and TripAdvisor reviews having never stayed in SB before. Room was a reasonable size but bathroom was in a terrible state of repair. Desk was also dirty and no safe in the room. Front desk staff were good. As always they ask if stay was good and we explained...

Smallish room, but with fireplace and very close to the beach. Clean, friendly staff. Safe parking. About 1mile to state street (downtown) and restaurants and 3/4 mile to main pier. Beach is very good for running except at the highest tides. Beach is always walkable. There is a bike path also and Sunday art show near the pier area.

What a neat retreat! Booked for one night and had a beautiful view. Just a quick walk to the beach and very close to all food areas. Watched dolphins in the bay and walked for miles along the beach. Super friendly and welcoming upon arrival and departure! Fireplace in room was great for the cool evening! Would love to stay...

My fiancé and I stayed here for four days in March, and I was very happy with our choice. We were just around the corner from the beach (no beach views, but I'd rather have a short walk over to the beach than stand in my room looking out the window!), and the location was quiet and peaceful. The Inn...

We stayed at the Inn at East Beach for a short two night stay in February of 2017. The Inn is tucked behind the Hyatt which faces the famous Shoreline of Santa Barbera.

It's a cool little spot, but those who are used to AC, beware, haha. (That's typical of many Californian homes and hotels apparently though) The breakfast was your typical continental style breakfast, but it's one meal you don't have to buy - so it makes it feel worth it and like you are getting more bang for your buck. We...

This is a nice motel/hotel. The owner is a lovely man who obviously takes pride in his place. The location is convenient to the beach, parking is easy and access to the room is good. The decor is calm and pretty, with lovely touches that make you realize it is a loved place of business. Everything always seemed cleaned, and...

The location is one block away from the beach, no beach view. Perhaps the upper story (2nd) have a slight view of water, not sure. The lower rooms by the pool have no view and I had little sense of being near a beach since that street is full of buildings. You need to walk maybe five minutes around the...
