Location It was an apartment converted to hotel ( I guess) . Hardwood floor when walking made screeching noise ... Also from top floor as well ... When the neighbor rooms use the restroom the water they use in shower or flushing sound was felt like it's happening next to you .. Had only swimming and not enough bikes so don't expect that you will be able to get one.. The telephone was not working ..
hotel milo was had lovely grounds. everything was nice quality and very comfortable. across the street from the beach and a close walk to state st. the staff (especially Sam!) was very nice and helpful. the walls were quite thin and I could every word from the people in the hall or those at the pool.
Location, location, location Roommate couldn't get into room before 4pm when she arrived mid morning. Not sure what priorities are used to determine which room is cleaned first... was it because I booked through a travel metasearch engine rather than the hotel? Also really surprised that the printer needed a cartridge to print, and staff was not able to print our boarding passes on another printer.
Location close to the ocean and nice comfort areas. The bathroom was old, probably needs new plumbing fixtures. Also the tiles were very slippery. Refrigerator wasn't working, and ice machines are located in remote areas of the hotel grounds. The room was hot and humid, might need central air to help with this problem.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Can't beat the location. Incredibly loud drilling, construction or something going upstairs woke us up at 7 AM and wouldn't stop. That was a fun surprise. Tried to call the front desk multiple times with no answer. Eventually got moved to a different room where it was quieter but the hot water more or less didn't work. Also in the new room the overhead light for some insane reason randomly turned on at 6 AM every single morning and woke us up. Pillows left us with aching necks. For the money, the quality of this hotel was impossibly shitty. Staff were very friendly and helpful but whoever owns/runs this place is coasting on the location alone and keeps the rooms in an embarrassing state. Would not stay here again or recommend it.
Attractive grounds The room was tiny and very hot with no air circulating. We had to check out.
Good location Extremely overpriced hotel. We paid over $400/ night for a room with king bed, so small that you couldn't walk around the bed, room was called Santa Barbara but it was smaller that any room I paid over $400/ night. The tub was very gross and smelly, the headboard to the bed was scratched and disgusting. No air conditioning. Not nice service at the front desk. One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in.
Can't beat the location right on the beach. Grounds are nicely landscaped and beautiful. Handy to have the continental breakfast provided (nothing special but ample fruit, cereal, muffins and coffee). Friendly staff. Rooms are sparse; walls are paper thin between rooms; all hotel room doors slam when closed, shaking our room each time hotel guests come and go. $30 a day extra to park on-site plus valet tips adds up quickly. Except for the fabulous location, hotel guest room feels like a Motel 6 (and we had a partial ocean view deluxe room!)
The room was hot, tiny and extremely uncomfortable. You couldn't even open the window because they had martini glasses, wine bottles, snacks etc in the way. There was no AC and only a fan. If they would invest in some AC units, it would have at least been tolerable. Some of the staff were rude as well. And it was overpriced. Don't stay here, stay anywhere else.
Absolutely loved this place. The beds were so comfortable, the staff was as friendly as can be, the bike rental was perfect. We stayed in early November for the half marathon (husband and cousin ran it) and the location was perfect. We booked early so got a great price. If you wait, the rooms can be very pricey. It's all about location location location. But we loved it!!!!! Will be back soon.
Location, good beds. They charged a $30 a day for parking and a $15 resort fee. We stayed two nights so that was an unexpected extra $100. The next hotel we stayed at didn't play any of those games.
Location and bikes they provide Remodel going on upstairs from our room. Front desk never told us about it going on. Very noisy and they started at 7:45-7:00 pm
Staff, room, pool, location good breakfast. Liked it so much going back in December for long week-end.
Very friendly and dedicated staff; breakfast included hot and cold items and was well-stocked with friendly service; pool area was nice and water was kept very warm; beds were comfortable, room felt spacious for a family; sliding glass doors to patio did an amazing jobof blocking street noise. We would definitely stay here again.
Clean, walking distance from the beach, close to downtown Santa Barbara, good price, free breakfast Motel style with exterior doors, could hear neighbors coming and going (this was not actually very disruptive), slow wifi
Great location/service and friendly staff.
Location Pool didn't open until 9:00!!
We had such a great time and were extremely pleased with the West Beach Inn! Everything about the hotel was perfect.....the staff, the room, the grounds and the pool were exceptional!
The hotel felt old and worn out. The Wi-Fi didn't work consistently. The tub didn't drain and even a short shower resulted in standing in ankle deep water.
the staff was great, we were greeted with wine, we had to change rooms and they were very accommodating. there were little gnats or fruitflies in our rooms (we changed rooms and the fruitflies were there too)- the bathrooms could've been cleaner- the tub had hair in it and could use a little bleach in the corners
Bed was comfortable The walls are so thin that you hear conversations next door and people walking and even moving in their bed above you. If you stay here, at least insist on an upper level room.
Local to event Very rude staff
The staff was very nice and help to direct us around town I feel the size of the room was way to small for the price
homeliness and location.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 days 2 nights as a getaway trip from work and we loved our little cottage! We booked the Santa Cruz Cantina and it was perfect for us! We loved the separate rooms and facilities within our own private little house. The only problem we had with our room was that the drains in the bathroom sink and bath tub didn't drain properly. The plug seemed to be stuck and had to be lifted/taken out by hand in order for water to drain.
Great location, great staff, great hotel
Our family of four had a great time at the Eagle Inn. Lovely rooms & super bathrooms. Breakfast was prepared and served individually. They even had cruiser bikes available that we used to explore Santa Barbara, which, given the super location, was easy to do. We liked the place so much, so didn't mind that there was only one queen bed per room. Rooms are too small for two beds, but fine with one bed. We also had one person who couldn't have taken the stairs, and were lucky to have downstairs room. Not sure if there was an elevator, so visitors should check for availability of downstairs rooms.
A quiete hotel located in walking distance to a number of good restaurants in the beach area.
Good location for the beach area,quiet aeea but close to action.Reception staff very helpful. Queen room quiet small.Breakfast very poor did complain about the variety and lack of key products.Expensive stay and it lacked value for money.
Very nice hotel with a friendly staff and in a great location. I will definitely stay again
helpful suggestions and cooperation with scheduling two blocks from the beach
The bedroom was amazing, perfect for lovers. The staff to the lobby was not really warmful
A beautiful hotel with really nice comfortable rooms. In a great location only minutes away from the beach and a 10 minute walk from the main nightlife.

Service and location
Well worth the money... beautiful rooms.
the beach across the street. Desk staff were very helpful.
The staff at the front desk. Super-welcoming, and they gave us a map of the area, as well as some recommendations, when they found out that it was our first time in the area. Nothing, I would definitely return. I would upgrade again to a waterfront view.
Location and facility were top notch! The staff could not have been nicer. Very personable and friendly. We felt like friends. Definitely recommend.
Staff was friendly and helpful Construction was loud
Rooms were very clean. Easy parking and amazing location.

Best location in Santa Barbara, right across from the beach and wharf. Ref in room was a mini bar, had to use my own cooler for drinks I brought to room. Ice machines were near byâ€¦ not to much of an inconvenience.
Needs basic maintenance. Plumbing, Electrical outlet put my cell phone out, but clerk fixed.
Nice clean room with seaview, perfect location.
Great location across the street from the beach/warf. Sundeck offers a beautiful place to enjoy breakfast. 3 star location, 1 star room. Small bathroom, shower backs up, noises from other guests walking upstairs.
The oceanfront location is absolutely perfect! The suite rooms with the jacuzzi tubs are the only way to go. Seriously, bring your own towels. You will also want to consider ear plugs as this is an old wood structure which is great at carrying noise.
Place,near the beach Small old towells ,only for hands and face,lights equipment not working - no reaction from stuff, Breckfast exist - but you need get it in very small place downstares and bring to you room- very non comfortable
Beach proximity Poor facility and dirty. Way too for thé poor state it is in.
It was within walking distance of many restaurants. The best part was it was directly across the street from the beach!
Unfortunetly, I cannot comment on one feature or attribute that I enjoyed at the Alamar By The Sea Motel. The rooms looked absolutely nothing like the ones online. They were extremely small and cramped. You literally had to step sideways to cross the bed. The room was adorned with furniture that looked like it came from a yard sale.... 20 years ago. There wasn't an iron in the room, and only 2 out of the 4 lights functioned properly. Parking was a pain because they only had 8 or 10 parking spots, but they were compact, and small. I was always worried that it was going to get damanged. The breakfast was a joke, they crammed a waffle maker on the front counter at the reservation desk. This motel was a terrible disappointment.
The location was great as across the street was the ocean and a block down was the pier. The guy at check in was very nice as well. Bed was rock hard. No light in bathroom. Only one light in the room was functional. Smelled musty. The guy at check out seemed more interested in the TV than the guests.
great location, by the sea. did not have thermostat for heat, there was a fake firplace but no instructions on how to work it.The bathroom window did not close, but we were on 2nd floor. the facility needed updating. The breakfast was to be picked up and carried back to your room, or eaten on the patio.
Luxurious bedding, pleasant decor in room, breakfast basket, quiet neighborhood, location near beach, helpful staff
Clean, well equipped kitchen, orderly premises and close to the beach. No "day curtains" on the windows. Passersby could look in.
The staff was really helpful and pleasant, and the room was verywell kept and perfectly sized for a comfortable weekend. The courtyard outside and the cute patio is a nice touch. We loved the breakfast basket and the nice, large bathroom.
I liked the anonymity offered by such a quaint and relaxing environment which made the trip very nice for people looking to get away. There seemed to be some noises coming from the vent. It sounded as though it may have been a critter, but I am not sure.
I loved the warm spirit of all the staff. I have stayed nearby many times and when I could not get the reseravations for the 10days I needed, I went directly to Bookings.com, as we found you to be so accurate when we travels Europe year bfore last. I was not dissapointed. I grew up in Santa B arabaraSince I have ot go to Want aBarabar reuguarlry now, I plan to stay there again. It is funky but comfortable and within easy walkign distance of the Marina, the Wharf and downtonw SB. Great acces to super restuarants. I hate being nickeld and dimed,so I love that the bottleed water was free in the hospitality basket, filled with fruit, fresh baked bread &lots of goodies. Also they have free biclyles you can use, beach chairs, towles,ect
The personal attention I received. Any concerns or requests were attended promptly. Most importantly, as a single female traveler I felt safe.
Customer service was great! Our room (King Suite with fireplace) was beautiful, super clean, with amenities beyond expected. We will definitely be stgaying here again!
Excellent location, welcome basket, comfortable bed, free bicycles including helmets and locks and very welcoming, friendly owner.
This hotel hit all the high points, staff was great, near the beach and all attractions of Santa Barbara, accomadations were quiet, comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely stay at Harbor House if I am ever again in Santa Barbara.
The hotel has a great location next to the train station, only a block from PCH, and a block away from downtown. Also nice that it's pet friendly. Staff was very nice and helpful. Come for the cost, stay for the real estate. The hotel is very small with tiny rooms and limited amenities. There is also about 180 degrees of construction happening in front of the hotel. They also have the condensed 5' x 5' hybrid bathrooms that wets 60% of the room after a shower.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is very well kept and the remodel was nicely done. Very good location, close to dining and shopping. You cant beat a 1 min walk to the beach! My wife and I enjoyed our stay and will be returning soon. Maybe next time we will borrow a couple of the beach cruisers and ride along the beach. Nothing
location. distance from the beach was great. not enough reserved parking. there was no carpet in the hotel room, which made the room much colder. the bedside lamp didn't work properly, and there were cracks in the tiles on the bathroom/shower walls. the lighting in the room was insufficient.
Location. My room was in the front of the property which was loud at times with cars and pedestrians. The parking lot can be dark and desolate.
Excellent location, very helpful friendly staff, good value for money. Would definitely recommend. No coffee/tea making facilities in room.
Warm, friendly, convenient, comfortable, clean
We liked the cleanliness and 'retro' look of the windows. The bed was very comfortable and there were reading lights on each side of the bed. The light over the sink was strong enough to see what one was doing, rather than just cast shadows. minor: I like a flat pillow and they were all fluffy.
Location near marina. Dog Friendly. Staff were great. MINOR improvement: Parking stalls were snug fit. Glad there was enclosed parking; wish the stalls were larger.
Within walking distance to the beach and excellent restaurants. Room was clean and comfy. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Clean and easy access to room...accepted pets. super skimpy breakfast for a place that bills itself as a B&B or Inn
Hotel is clean, great location, well kept, staff is friendly and helpful. None. I would definitely stay here again.
Location and good bed There was no reserved parking and not enough spaces for guests.
The hotel was quaint, almost b&b style. The location was fabulous in that it was almost in a neighborhood setting but within a short walking distance to all the downtown activities.
the rooms were well setup with good decor and the common areas were great
Location and breakfast
close to the beach, quaint place, comfortable, friendly staff bathroom was cramped
Comfortable, clean rooms with fantastic staff. All shopping, restaurants, beach and entertainment within walking distance.
