  • Family with children

    This hotel's location was perfect - within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, piers and beaches -- but also had free on-site parking. The hotel was spotless, both in the rooms and the exterior corridors, and the staff was friendly and helpful. This hotel/motel was a great value, with nicely appointed rooms, and I would stay there again.

    The breakfast, while free, was nothing to brag about, but ok if you only want yogurt or cereal and milk!

  • Couple
    10.0

    My experience at this Best Western hotel was simply amazing. The room was awesome, way better that expected. It looked more like a room at a 4/5 stars hotel than one at a 3 stars hotel. Location was great, breakfast was excellent and most importantly, the staff was extremely courteous. As an example, Tomas took about 20 minutes of his time to help me and my fiancee organize my roadtrip to Disneyland, recommending (excellent) places to have food and nice locations to see at many cities besides Santa Barbara. I would definitely go back to this hotel if I ever go back to the city!

    At peak time there might not be enough tables to accomodate every guest that is trying to have breakfast.

  • 10.0

    Stayed here as a stop on the way down the coast. Excellent location and value for money. Very good facilities and great view from our room.

  • 8.2

    Swimming pool was heated which was great!

    Construction happening around pool area, very thin walls...I could hear my neighbors talking.

  • 9.6

    Did not eat the eggs but had great coffee.

    The tv did not wprk well. Hard to change the channels. Wpold be nice if it had a jacuuzi. Temperature of pool was great.

    The price for on Booked.net said 292.86.Was actually charged 369.28.Only extra charge was 3 dollars a day parking ..

    The view from the teracce

    Paper plates and plastic spoons for poor breakfast.

  • 7.0

    Very close to the pier and bars .

    Tiny room, but nice if you don't spend too much time in your room .

  • 8.8

    The Beachside is close to the harbour and marina in Santa Barbara, and only a short walk from the pier. Good onsite parking.

    The only downside is the pool area which is very small - however the beach is across the road!

  • 10.0

    Close to everthing....you must try fish and chips on harbour!

  • 7.4

    Hotel easy to find and beside a park.

    Construction going there door away.

  • 4.2

    The location was fine.

    The wooden floorboards made a lot of noise. Carried our own luggage as the office consists of a tiny room facing the street with one staff member on duty at any time. No food offered at all. Curtains in room were thin and did not block out light. Bathroom was tiny with no amenities. Room was small. Would not stay here again for the price and the lack of amenities.

  • 7.8

    We liked the location of this hotel, especially for the price. I thought the beds were comfortable and the place was clean.

    The air conditioner was blocked from going below 72 degrees and I would have been more comfortable at 70. I had trouble sleeping because it was too warm. The carpet was old, stained and worn.
