Staff not helpful. Room carpet dirty.

Outside look is good. But i would not stay there again. Room expected to be a king or queen bed it was for my husband and me get away, the person told us we had two double beds I asked him if he can do something so we can get at least a room with at least a queen bed and he said there was nothing he can do, he said that next time I should contact the hotel directly for reservations that I should not go to priceline site that they would have given me a better deal and the room I wanted . ... more

I liked the way the outside flowers and plants were maintained. They did try to make up for the dated hotel by placing cookies, coffee and candy in the room, But it certainly does not make up for the dingy outdated rooms. What a disappointment.

This hotel has not been updated in years. The rooms are dingy, old and outdated. The room was so used, it was difficult to think about putting my bare feet on the carpet, sit in the brown upholstered chair. To add, the worst is that it was overpriced.

Best Western can do better than this. This hotel should have been remodeled 15 years ago. We felt like we were in a time warp. It was disappointing. ... more

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! ... more

In heart of downtown SB, walking distance to Granada Theatre and dining/retail, beautiful Spanish Mission styling. Excellent service at valet parking, front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping. Wonderful canopy bed but definitely used the step stool. Only thing missing was a ottoman to put up your feet.

Absolutely nothing. Expensive but worth the splurge.

Staff is very accommodating, helpful and cheerful. I am very appreciative that they took the time and care to find an accessible room for my elderly mothers needs.

The walls are very thin. There were huge parties happening next door and upstairs (spring break, no fault of hotel) but the thin walls made it worse. I could hear movement and conversation before the parties began. Very thin sheets also.

This is a well priced hotel for the area. Accommodating staff is their big plus. I will stay here again, after renovation work is completed. ... more

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... ... more

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
