    Superb

    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!

    Exceptional

    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.

    Superb

    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!

    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.

    Fabulous

    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.
