Santa Barbara Lodging's General Manager: Frank Santana, the Legend

The Inn at East Beach has earned a reputation as not just another Santa Barbara beach hotel. Maybe it’s our hip retro-50’s flair and unexpected amenities. Maybe it’s our commitment to service and value, with low daily rates that anyone can afford. Maybe it’s our phenomenal East Beach location surrounded by top Santa Barbara attractions.

Or, maybe it’s just Frank!


For the past 19 years, General Manager Frank Santana and his wife Linda have worked tirelessly to make every stay at our hotel in Santa Barbara one-of-a-kind. From the moment you arrive, Frank’s warmth and graciousness will set the tone for your visit. That’s because keeping guests happy is a true labor of love for Frank, and you won’t find a GM anywhere more dedicated to his mission.

It’s no wonder Frank has developed a legitimate cult following that has our guests returning again and again.
