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.

I went there with some friends for New year, and it was amazing! The staff were helpful and super friendly! The location is really good, walk distance from the beach and lots of bar and restaurants! We loved and will recommend for friends and family.

This was a lovely clean beachside hotel. Right across the street from the harbor. It was also walking distance from restaurants. Staff was very friendly also. Our balcony faced the ocean which also faced the road so expect some noise, but not terrible.

We were traveling with 3 adults and 3 small children so we booked the Patio Suite; with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and living room. This room did not disappoint. We loved having so much space! The windows were huge and let in lots of light, the kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes, pans, and flatware that we needed, and we were super close to the pool. We loved being just a short walk to Stearns Wharf as well as the harbor. There was even a little grocery store we walked to, less than a mile away. The breakfast provided was also very good and I appreciated how they managed to provide a great deal of variety even with covid precautions in place. The best part, however, was the service. They were very responsive and always friendly. This is the first hotel I have every stayed in where I requested a crib for a baby and the crib was ready and waiting in the room when we arrived. This is an older hotel, but the service, location, and space cannot be beat.

Our stay at West Beach Inn was really nice. It's such a great location that we never got in our car. We went for a Whale Watch tour that is literally across the street from the hotel. We enjoyed a short walk to Stearns Wharf and MOXI museum. We also walked to the many, many restaurants on State Street. The staff was very friendly and professional. We enjoyed the evening wine/cheese hour. The Continental breakfast was pretty decent for these COVID times - fresh fruit, muffins, cereal, oatmeal, etc. Some hotels I've stayed in, recently, offer a packaged granola bar as their "breakfast"! Our room was comfortable and clean. There is an elevator. I noticed another reviewer stating that there is not.

This hotel is a three star hotel so it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles but if I go back to Santa Barbara, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Our rooms overlooked the harbor and as an early riser I enjoyed watching the sunrise and watching the fishing boats go out. In the morning I sometimes took a walk along the beach. The funk zone, Stearns Wharf , sores, restaurants wineries and Chad’s, our favorite place for breakfast we’re all within a 5 or 10 minute walk. The room and hotel were immaculate. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Theyhad coffee in the morning and a lite continental breakfast, which we partook of when we were on the go in the morning. They had wine and cheese complimentary late afternoon. It wasn’t fabulous but it wasn’t bad, and it was a nice little perk. They were also very responsive when we needed something. I looked at other 4 star hotels in a similar location and they were double the price. The only drawback was the noise from garbage trucks early some mornings. This hotel was a great value!
