Castillo Inn at the Beach

Hotel in West Beach, Santa Barbara

Castillo Inn at the Beach features air-conditioned rooms with cable flat-screen TV in the West Beach district of Santa Barbara. Great hotel -- large, nicely appointed rooms, very comfortable beds, everything was upgraded and clean and beautiful. Nicest place we stayed in SoCal! Plus, the location a block from the beach and marina--and walking distance to State Street and the Stearns Piers--is fantastic! Highly recommend!
