The Inn at East Beach is what we talk about when we talk about local immersion.

What it's like

The cozy two-story property, with 33 guest rooms accessed by outside doors, follows the contour of the pool—great for a quick evening dip. The Santa Ynez mountains rise above the rooftops to enhance the close-in, intimate feel. Superior Rooms have gas fireplaces, and the Junior Kitchen Suites include full kitchens and dining areas—ideal for families or extended stays. All guestrooms match the Santa Barbara vibe with exposed-wood beach-house-style ceilings, natural hues and faux-stone headboards.   

Independent spirit

19 years of providing local experiences and top hospitality.

Small touches

A complimentary continental breakfast is served daily in the small and welcoming lobby—perfect for a grab-and-go meal before picking up a bike from the inn’s rental service. 

Eat and drink

The Inn at East Beach is in close proximity to plenty of Santa Barbara eateries—just tell Frank, the charismatic GM in the Hawaiian shirt, what you're in the mood for and he'll point you in the right direction.

And more

Longtime general manager and unofficial Mayor of East Beach Frank Santana, goes the extra mile for guests. The Hawaiian shirt wearing friendly legend personally welcomes each guest and is quick to share restaurant recommendations, hiking trail secrets, souvenir shopping tips, and more.
