The location was across the beach from the waterfront and a block from the main drag of downtown SB so it was a perfect location. The hotel grounds, the main lobby, and the areas open to the public were very nice. That being said, that was the only nice part about this hotel. Oh, and the valet were extremely polite. And a 12pm checkout.

The hotel is very large and we walked around for quite a while with our luggage in hand to find the entrance to our building. We we were asked upon check-in if we had a map, but never actually shown where on the map our room was. When we did finally locate the room, adjacent to the elevators (very noisy), the room was horrible. Why we were placed in the disabled accessible room was beyond me for my family of four. At least if there were no more rooms, please let me know upon check-in. I started to make a fuss, but we were only there for one night and to be honest, the lobby was super far and my fiance and I had just carried all the luggage to the room ourselves and were sweating and we had to meet our family for dinner soon. There was no rod to hang our clothes in the closet, but there were several hangars on a hook that I have no clue what I was supposed to do with. The entire bathroom looked like one giant shower with a drain in the middle and the grout looked so dirty, I felt uncomfortable walking in the room at all without my flip flops. The room itself looked as modern/updated as a Motel 6 (no offense Motel 6) but for the cost of the Ritz-Carlton. I was totally unimpressed. I was told there was a free continental breakfast so we headed there the next morning but when my eighteen year old daughter asked the host if this is where we the "free breakfast was," the host corrected her and said, "It's not free-it's complimentary and you need vouchers from the front-desk." Last time I checked, those two words meant the same thing. We all walked over to the concierge desk and I told him we didn't receive vouchers and he responded, "That room doesn't usually qualify for the breakfast. It's only for the upper tiers and Hilton Honors." Shocked by his tone and disbelieving, I repeated the room number and I asked if he were sure. His response was identical and he looked down and continued doing whatever menial task he was doing before. We were dismissed. Never would I stay in this hotel again, no matter what the cost. Unattractive rooms and the worst customer service ever. I loved the Doubletree until this.

Great location

This hotel is definitely more like a 3 star, not a 4 star. There were no 4 star amenities in my opinion. The entire property was old, weathered, and outdated.

My room had a broken sliding door, the sofa smelled like FEET, the shower curtain was torn, the ceiling had a messily drilled hole (yes, HOLE)... I could go on and on! Internet is also NOT free. Food/beverage service at the pool was slow and we had to call the front desk to bring towels to the pool area. If you are looking for a luxurious romantic getaway, this is definitely NOT the place.

Lovely rooms, super location, useful and enjoyable public spaces. Breakfast was everything you'd want and more. Bed and room were very comfortable except for the lack of air conditioning on a hot hot day.

No air conditioner, no hair dryer. Room was hot and suffocating when we arrived. Should have been aired. A bit spendy weekends.

Quaint older property full of charm. Location can't be beat for Santa Barbara beach access, pier and State street shopping all within walking distance. Staff is really, really good.

Liked the walk out garden area. Also the fruit, candy, water and robes in the room and the way the room was furnished. The staff was also very friendly and helpful.

The room was very small and the hotel very old with exterior ill-fiting doors and one window that did not close. Also breakfast was not included with the room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the West Beach. Our room was quiet, well appointed and very clean. The view, looking through the garden out to the sea was gorgeous. We enjoyed the delicious pastries, and fresh fruit in the morning sitting at the table and chairs outside of our room. It was perfect. The location by sea gave us the opportunity to ditch the car and walk to restaurants, shopping or on the beach. Ultimately relaxing! The only complaint I have is that the pillows were very soft, which is probably just my personal preference of a firm pillow. Free internet is a super plus!

The room was spacious.

The room was VERY grimy and poorly maintained. The mattresses sagged, and the bathroom door was chipped and splintering on the bottom. Everything was very old and run-down. The pool had algae growing in it.

I will not stay at this hotel again. Although the lobby was lovely and appeared to be freshly renovated, I have never seen a dirtier or more poorly-maintained hotel room. Although the towels and bed linens were new and sparkling, the walls and bathroom door were covered in decades worth of visible grime. The bottom of the bathroom door was chipped and splintering. The bathtub and base of toilet were very inexpertly and messily caulked, with about an inch thickness of caulking all around anywhere mildew might grow (which led me to think that the bad caulking job was intentional, to hide existing mildew). The room smelled musty and the sofa and cocktail table looked very old, like pre-1970. The AC unit was so loud I...

It was very overpriced for what I got. No fridge in the room, a bathroom that felt like a public swimming pool locker room, thin towels, and no pool towels at all.

Service and front desk were very welcoming and helpful.

Walls are thin.

It looks like it's being really renovated. Excited to see what it turns out to be. It was just me and a girl friend of mine, we ended up in a nifty suite looking place that had a king bed, and two queens in a separate room. Could be good for families.

Mar 23 2014 Posted by Verified Hotel Guest

Clean, big enough, minimal but not lacking, free bikes to use, price was reasonable, especially for Santa Barbara

The room had zero sound proofing, so we heard every conversation of people who walked by, an hour long yelling and cursing and door slamming by a neighboring guest, and 8 AM trash trucks dumping, all as though they were IN our room!

I wouldn't stay again because it's important to be able to sleep in a hotel. That's my #1 priority. And if you can't sleep (and I'm a heavy sleeper) because of all the racket, to me, the hotel is a failure, in spite of everything they're doing well. They had louvered windows that didn't even close all the way, both in the back and front of the room. Back let in sounds from the alley (trash trucks and loud dumpsters), front let in loud neighbors.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
