                  The hotel was cool and more of a unique experience than chain hotels. I stay in tons of hotels and I enjoyed the retro feel to this one. It wasn't spotless but it was clean enough and I loved the comfortable bedding and the size of the room was great. The breakfast was actually pretty good - I normally don't eat the free breakfast at hotels but I did every day when staying here. It was really close to the beach, if not on the beach front, it was only a short stroll away. It was also really quiet. Although there were a lot of people staying there, I didn't hear any voices or banging doors etc coming through floors or walls. I was surprised at how peaceful and restful it was.

                  The main thing (and only important thing) that bugged me was the springy bed. It was super comfortable but bouncy which meant that when we were trying to fall asleep, any movement from the other person disturbed the one almost asleep. When one person got up in the night, the other awoke. It sounds silly and I have never noticed this before in my life but now I understand why they sell those special mattresses - the ones you can drop a bowling ball on one side and the other side doesn't move. I almost moved rooms so we could have two beds but I did like our room. I didn't get a lot of sleep but it wasn't because of noise. This hotel was quiet in general.

                  Craig, the manager, is a wonderful character. His upbeat, friendly way was a welcome ending to a tiring day. He is a true asset to the Inn at East Beach.

                  The "room service" was a bit confusing.

                  We really enjoyed Frank's morning conversation! In addition, the room was beautifully decorated and provided just the right level of comfort for our stay. Both Linda and Frank went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed, from corkscrews and wine glasses to postage stamps and mail service.

                  The distance from the Inn to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach was a little further than we thought it would be, but the bus and trolley stop is a short walk away (only a quarter to ride the trolley!), and cab fare to State Street or the harbor is under $10.

                  The owner is the most friendliest host ever. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Great room and gilchrist & soams bath amenities, too. Lovely continental breakfast as well.

                  All great !

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  The inn is really close to both the beach and the Santa Barbara Zoo (walkable to both - less than a block) plus the rooms were fantastic: the heating was via a glassed-in gas fireplace that switched on by a thermostat - really convenient and lovely to look at; the beds had great pillows; the bathroom sink was huge; the bath amenities were excellent, too. The innkeeper was a wonderful man who knew the area and was a delight to talk to.

                  A continental breakfast was served but the area did not open up until 7:30, so no coffee was available until then (the coffee in the room was terrible). Would have liked to have coffee on tap earlier.

                  Nice room breakfast included and nice pool

                  A over efficient staff at breakfast . got costs added to our rate once we arrived which was a little upsetting

                  The facility is tidy, clean and elegant. Location: one block away from East Beach. The manager, Frank, is possibly the best hotel/motel owner I have ever come across.

                  Extremely friendly & helpful ?owner. Excellent location within walking distance of beach & town, though quiet location. Breakfast outside, which was pleasant.

                  Didn't use pool as didn't look very clean.

                  Very welcoming staff, upgraded us to a suite on arrival! Very good location only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. When we return to Santa Barbera we will stay here again.

                  I loved the new renovations. The colors were really nice and the textural additions gave it a little something extra. I liked the price for what we got. The continental breakfast was great and provided a lot of variety.

                  Frank the owner was awesome. Personable, caring and exuding hospitality, he made the visit memorable. The Inn is closely located to everything one needs to visit in Santa Barbara. It was a great experience and I will be back!
