This is a surprisingly spacious property for being so close to beach. And the beach location is what makes it appealing. Pool is a bit small but nice and clean. Staff was great. The fitness center was pretty basic (30lbs. Dumbbells max.). The room was spacious and updated, definitely comfortable . We were in the west wing and were told because we booked expedia we would get the "rack rate rooms"(i.e least appealing). Might book direct next time. We paid extra and upgraded to partial ocean view on first floor, which was really just a garden-pool view. I wouldn't do it again unless it was second floor. Overall, a nice place with a boutique Holiday Inn feel, just a bit pricey for not quite 4 star amenities.

I found this hotel on Expedia and was very pleased with our experience. The hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The Happy Hour and continental breakfast were such a nice surprise. We enjoyed our stay and will return if we are in the area again.
All is very good. Just make sure you get a room on the upper level. Room rates are very competitive for the area.
Clean. Well maintained. Staff does really try hard to accommodate guests.

What a surprise this property is. From the outside it is very pretty, surrounded by lovely gardens with beautiful flowers. When I first saw that the unit we had was right at the front really close to the street I was worried. Though not a particularly busy street, someone across the road was playing with the power tools and making a fair amount of noise. When you go inside though and close the door - silence. Perfect.
The interiors are like something from a home decorating magazine. A huge king size bed, large convertible couch, flat screen tv and high table with high chairs. Very stylishly done. Even a real orchid in a pot. A small well fitted kitchen with everything that you could need. A very nice bathroom with great lighting, huge fluffy towels and lots of mirrors. Also a dressing room. Yes, a dressing room with plenty of room for large suitcases and hanging space. Lots of coathangers. Everything was perfectly stylish.
Separated from East Beach by Stearns Wharf, a stone's throw from Santa Barbara's many dining and shopping destinations, West Beach is the place for adventurers looking to go kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing. With views of boats coming and going from Santa Barbara's main harbor, West Beach is also the ideal spot from which to enjoy the annual 4th of July and New Year's fireworks shows.
