This hotel has done a nice job with renovations and staffing. Both are great, Rooms are large and there's a good amount of parking available. Just know the bathrooms are small and only a very few rooms have an ocean view. It's close to the beach so that's convenient. The hotel has made good use of older location and there...

The hotel is located at the beachfront of Santa Barbara. Downtown is about 30 mins walk, while the pier is a nice 15 min walk from the hotel. I had booked the hotel for an overnight stay on my way to LA. Santa Barbara is worth a visit. Such a lovely place. Check in, check out was flawless. Service was...

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...
