It was very beautifully manicured. Room was clean and quiet. And it was conveniently near the ocean and favorite eating spots. Loved it and would return there.

Atmosphere was tranquil. Liked it was close to the beach and pier. Loved the seats and table in front of our room. Allowed us to watch the sunset. Only downside was breakfast. Selection of food and coffee easily skipped. Did enjoy the complementary wine and cheese.

Location is great. Hotel is not.

Pros: The location.
Cons: The hotel could use a very extensive renovation with most of the interior painting, fixtures, and carpeting.
Location: It's right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Very close to Santa Barbara's famed "State Street".
For the price paid, this hotel was a disappointment. It was run down, old, and came complete with strange smells. They do a halfway decent job of "trying" to keep it up, but that doesn't stop this hotel for showing its age. I think the best way to describe my experience is to say I felt like I was staying in a cheap Motel 6 that had been renamed. Now here's the good part. This hotel is located right across the street from the beach, so if that's what really matters to you, then you might overlook the condition of the rooms. It's also within walking distance to restaurants and shops, so I'd rate this place very highly on location. Unfortunately for me, I was there for the wineries about 25 miles away, not necessarily for the beach. I would have gotten a hotel closer to the wineries, but I wanted to be near more restaurants and stores. Almost all of Santa Barbara's small hotels are outrageously overpriced because it's a touristy beach town near wine country, so despite what I've said above, this is about the best you'll get (especially near the beach) for a reasonable price. I'd recommend this particular hotel to others only if they care much more about the location than they do about the condition of the hotel.

West beach inn- pleasant surprise

Perfect location for walking to beach, pier, marina, state street and funk zone. Across street from beach. Street side has great views but can be noisy- we turned on ac fan and we're fine. Beds and pillows were great. 5:00 wine and cheese nice touch, ok continental breakfast. Great boiled eggs. Nice small well kept inn. Had 2 rooms, party of 5 rooms good sized with balconies overlooking ocean.
