Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Best Western Beachside Inn’s quaint charm fits in with the laid-back Southern California ethos. Located across the street from the ocean, the hotel has spacious rooms and suites in a comfortable contemporary design. Ask for a room with a view of scenic Santa Barbara harbor to make the most of the proximity to the sea. Drift off at night to the soothing sight of ships bobbing on the water.

All room options have separate couches or easy chairs, perfect for relaxing and surfing the Web on the hotel’s free Wi-Fi. While online, research which one of the marina’s restaurants to try that evening, a tough choice since all are highly regarded for their fresh seafood selections.

The hotel offers a free continental breakfast daily and a heated courtyard pool for those who avoid the sand. If fun in the sun is more appealing than lazing around, a few minutes' walk south is popular Leadbetter Beach. Join an impromptu volleyball game or learn to surf on the smaller and gentler waves found at this slice of shore.

Stearns Wharf, a long pier popular with tourists for its restaurants, shopping and Sea Center marine facility, is about a 10-minute walk north of the hotel. Spend the day learning about local sea life and then meander historic State Street, which starts across the street from the pier. The blocks-long avenue is filled with specialty boutiques, eateries and entertainment.
