We stayed here for 2 nights on our way from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The location was good and the hotel suited our needs. We were just across the road from the beach-the room was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious-Frank was available every morning to tell us what was available-cereals,eggs freshly cooked pastries and muffins,toast etc etc. We eat it outside on the patio which was pleasant and chatted to other guests. We drove to the pier the first afternoon-parking free for the first 90mins and the second day took the shuttle bus to the shops. Our last evening we walked across the road to the beach cafe and watched the pelicans diving for fish as the sun went down-brilliant.

Stayed at the the Inn at East beach on the 16th October 2013 on a road trip from LA to San Francisco along the Pacific Coast highway. The Inn is easy enough to get to after leaving the 101 at jct 96a.
Christine on reception made us feel very welcome and made sure anything we needed we just had to ask. The room was clean, tidy, spacious and comfortable. The pier is about 20-25 mins away and about the same from the pier to Union street, the main shopping area which has the usual retail establishments and a good selection of eateries.
The Inn has a small pool, ideal for a dip after a long day.
We did the walk then crashed out in our room ordering pizza's from Marty's Pizza's, who promptly delivered to our room, washed down with a glass of wine.
Breakfast was a serve yourself, with juice, coffee, tea, cereals, toast, fruit and a multitude of pastries. All helped along by Frank the GM, who went out of his way to make sure you were well fed.

Thanks for making us welcome.

My husband and I had never been to Santa Barbara and really only came as a day destination in order to experience the coastal train! We fell in love with Santa Barbara! and it started with a pleasant stay at this budget-friendly, hidden gem, a 5 minute walk from the beach!It has somewhat of a small boutique hotel feel, with updated decor, and personalized service like a B&B! Frank, the owner, is super helpful, good humored, and makes everyone feel special.Continental breakfast was good, with huge, fresh pastries, bagels, breads, fruit, juices, tea, and a THEE best coffee!Frank gave us helpful tips about where to go, perfect dinner recommendations, and comp drinks at some really cool bars on State Street! The only 2 negatives are-you can hear trains passing, and sounds from neighboring units, so if you're a light sleeper, this may be bothersome. The other is the bathroom--the door isn't good for privacy and the floor is carpeted rather than tiled.The positives obviously outweigh the negatives!

Room Tip: Choose an upper level room if noise will bother you.

Dear Guest
I am so happy to hear that we helped you to fall in love with our amazing town and that you enjoyed your stay so!!! I do unserstand about the train noise and the bathroom door and I apologize!!! While we do offer ear plugs as one solution to the noise issue, I understand that isn't a comfortable option for all and soundproofing, as well as new bathroom doors and floors, may be something we are looking into for our future endeavours!!! I do hope we will have the pleasure of seeing you again on your next visit to Santa Barbara!!!

Christina Montalvo

This was our 4th visit to Santa Barbara. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The room was quite comfortable - loved the big kitchen even though we hardly used it. The check in service was excellent and we got lots of information at check in. In the morning we met Frank who was so sweet and accommodating. Breakfast is continental but quite substantial with great pastries. We'll be coming back and we'll also tell our friends! Thank you Frank and staff for the great mini vacation.

A cool retro property just a block off the beach. Great location! Free parking, WiFi, breakfast. Was a fast weekend trip, but we'll be back!! Frank makes this place special! Awesome source for any info, and a pusher of the delicious pastries! We loved the decor, although I would definitely consider new toilets and shower. The trough sink and new lav faucets were very nice. (Plumbing contractor, so maybe a little picky!) Fairly quiet. You will hear the train from time to time, and you will hear peeps walking by your room. We were on the top floor. The only other thing I could desire is A/C. The fans were helpful, and most of the time it's probably not needed, we just happened to be there on a hot weekend. You can't beat the value! Can't wait to be back!! Thanks Frank and staff!!

Room Tip: Floor two has higher ceilings I think. Our room had a fireplace as well. 127.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your feedback and your kind words! I am so happy to hear that you had such a great stay with us at the Inn at East Beach! I completely understand your point of view about our bathrooms and our lack of A/C. We are hoping to bring A/C to the property in the future! As for the bathrooms, we may have to include them in our next update! I will be sure to share this with the rest of my team! I loko forward to seeing you again!
