My fiance and I recently stayed at Inn at East Beach for two nights while in town for a concert at Santa Barbara Bowl. We were able to check in early and enjoy more of the day in Santa Barbara.
About the location: The hotel is two streets from the beach and close to a crosswalk. It is located in East Beach, so the area is not as crowded as it would be if staying near State Street, which is a definite plus. There is a great market nearby where we purchased appetizers to enjoy in our room. A block and a half away is the bus stop for the $0.25 shuttle that takes you up and down the waterfront to State Street.
About the hotel and staff: The room was extremely clean and more spacious than anticipated. The multiple windows allowed fresh air to flow through the room. The bed was comfortable, the decor had a laid-back beach vibe, the towels were incredibly soft, and the toiletries were perfect. We stayed on the first floor and noticed the noise of the people above us; it didn't bother us, but if you are a light sleeper you may want to request a second floor room. Frank and his wife are both friendly and accommodating. The breakfast they host is more than your average continental, including local coffee/bagels/pastries, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal + milk, toast, and condiments galore. The pool has comfortable chaise lounges, chairs, and tables scattered around it.
We will definitely be staying here again next time we're in Santa Barbara!
