Best Western Beachside Inn Hotel Review: While you won’t bed down in Frette linens at this budget brand hotel, it does offer convenience at a relatively affordable price point. Unfortunately, the prime location --- on the busy waterfront corner of Cabrillo and Castillo streets --- means traffic noise. And with no air-conditioning and the ocean just across the street, you will want to open the window at times. All 60 rooms offer free high-speed Internet access and basic amenities such as coffeemakers, hair dryers and irons. Continental breakfast is also included. Located directly across from the Santa Barbara Harbor, the property features rooms with views of swaying boat masts and, beyond them, the Pacific. Stearns Wharf and Lower State Street are a short walk away.
