Best Western Beachside Inn

Santa Barbara, California Coast

The hotel

Most choose Best Western Beachside Inn for its location: just across the road from the beach and Santa Barbara Harbour, and a stroll from Stearns Wharf, with its seafood restaurants and boat trips. But it’s got more than a good address. It comes with little treats to make your stay in Santa Barbara both easy and comfy – like the complimentary WiFi and Continental breakfasts each morning, to the microwave and fridge in your room. Then there’s the swimming pool: hidden away in a courtyard-style setting, it has an intimate feel and Mediterranean styling that make it an utterly relaxing spot. But, if you prefer to do your swimming in the ocean, there are several stunning beaches just a short stroll away.

We came for University Days at Westmont. My friend and I walked to the Fish House Sunday evening and enjoyed a walk along the beach path the next morning after our free breakfast. I also enjoyed a very comfortable night's sleep. It was the perfect home base for our weekend.

I had a very nice room looking out over the marina. With poor WiFi and lukewarm water every morning for my shower, it wasn’t worth the price I paid for the room. My first room for $249 looked out over a wall and roof. When I complained, I did get a nice view for $269.

We enjoyed our stay. Great location, clean rooms, big shower, great bed, breakfast choices were abundant and the food was good. Free parking a definite plus. Really nothing negative to say about this hotel.

Excellent place to stay for a girls weekend getaway. Close to harbor amd walking distance to state street and funk zone. Rooms were clean and the girls loved the decor. The check in and check out was so easy and convenient.
