I was very pleased with my stay at the Best Western Beachside Inn. The staff was very friendly and respectful. The room was clean and updated. The pool was heated and very clean. Best of all, there is an all you can eat hot breakfast served in the lobby from 7:00-10:00 in the morning. Not just donuts and coffee. There...

Very nice hotel. Very clean, friendly, easy parking. Dog Friendly. We would stay here again. The check in was quick, the staff is professional, the breakfast is hot and very fluffy scrambled eggs. Convenient to terrific restaurants, and the walk thru the marina was dreamy.

Very well located, clean and friendly staff. The only thing I didn't like that it was a bit too noisy from the street and on the other side of the door, as you could hear everyone pass by. It was the tiniest lobby/breakfast area I've been to, however choice of food was decent enough and although not everything was tasty,...

Pleasant welcome by Christian, great morning welcome in the breakfast bar by Chris. Very pleasant staff! Building is a bit older but, they have Christian renovations to the bathroom in my room. Nice location across the street from the beach.

This hotel is by far the best value hotel with an ocean view in Santa Barbara. Its proximity to the beach, trails and bike paths make it an ideal location for a relaxing weekend or week-long vacation.

We stayed at the Best WesternBeachside Inn in October. Four nights. Reasonable price good location and very friendly and helpful staff. All engaged in their job which adds to a good atmosphere. If we come back to Santa Barbara we will choose the same hotel.

We thought we would pop over to Santa Barbara for some wine tasting. The rain was pouring down when we arrived on a Monday. The staff was cheery and the front desk clerk gave us a room with an ocean view. The continental breakfast was quite filling and a staff member noticed I was taking breakfast to the room and...

The BW Beachside starts with one of the best locations in Santa Barbara. A short walk from the wharf one direction and the marina the other. The staff is so very friendly and helpful. Also, this is a hotel that acts like a boutique, hot cookies in the lobby every afternoon. Fruit infused water all day, and a HOT breakfast...

This hotel is priced right, but you get no luxury accommodations. The staff is efficient and helpful--the staff top notch. The actual rooms are VERY small and the decor is clean, but very old.
