From very friendly staff, to clean and comfortable conditions this is a great hotel overlooking the harbor. The view is spectacular. The harbor is across the street and sunrise was amazing. It's a little pricey but a great stay.

After two separate 15 night trips in California and 10+ hotels, the West Beach Inn is by far our favourite hotel! The location is perfect, overlooking the harbour/beach and near the shops. Parking was very easy (and free!). We loved the wine/cheese in the evenings, sat by the pool before we went out for dinner. Amazingly; the pool and hot-tub...

Very friendly staff. Well located across the road from the beach. Awesome pool area. Especially liked the wine & cheese by the pool at 5pm. Breakfast was simple, but had good options. Family friendly & would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the West Beach Inn recently on our first trip to Santa Barbara. Our room was dull and overpriced. Coast Hotels appear to have missed training staff in general customer service skills. Very disappointing.

As a couple travelling with a baby, who stayed here for 1 night, we were very happy with our choice of hotel. The location is perfect, it's right on the beach front. The rooms are huge, clean and well maintained. Yes the decor is slightly out-dated but this hotel offers value for money and a decent place to rest while...

We only stayed one night at the end of our vacation. What a pleasant surprise. We were right across the street from the Marina and a short walk from Stearns Warf. They have a wine and cheese reception every night. Plastic wine glasses allowed us to enjoy a glass by the pool and the jacuzzi. We requested a Garden view...

We stayed here for two nights, family room was clean and spacious. Pool was lovely. The cheese and wine in the evening was a great idea. The location was perfect, close to the beach etc. The staff weren't that friendly or helpful though.
