Spent two nights in room 2A and enjoyed every moment. Lovely large room, fantastic bathroom and well furnished. Location is also excellent as it's a 2 minute walk to the beach and the harbour for whale watching, and a couple of blocks over from State Street. The welcome pack was also excellent.

Loved this place....loved its attention to detail with the grounds and each room. We stayed in room 118C. Loved the layout of the room...large separate area for storing lots of clothes and suitcases, bathroom equipped with everything you will need on vacation and a very well equipped small kitchen....which we did not use, but the breakfast basket provided was so...

The hotel staff was awesome, very helpful with all requests and friendly. Parking on-site was steps to the room and the lobby. Free beach cruisers for use, if you are so inclined. And, the best part was a freshly renovated unit which had all of the amenities you could want. Great spot, would highly recommend.

We spent one night in Santa Barbara as part of a very rainy California road trip. When we got to Harbor House, we were given a room that had all we needed but was extremely small. I asked the staff if there was any possibility of moving to a larger room, and they very graciously arranged for us to move...

It was decorated in antiques and included a fully functioning...

We stayed in a king suite (room 118a) that as warm and inviting. The suite is decorated in beige and blue and it looks like a room designed by Pottery Barn. Sea grass wallpaper, windows from ceiling to floor, beautiful decorating accessories in every space and a kitchen stocked with every convenience. In addition, every area in the room speaks...

When we were looking for a place to stay in Santa Barbara, there were several places that looked enticing. We decided on Harbor House Inn because of the option to use their bicycles! We truly enjoyed our stay. The room was nice because it carried all the amenities. It was nice to brew a fresh pot of locally roasted coffee,...

My husband and I spent a week at the Harbor House last year and loved it so much we just had to go back. Karen, the owner, has taken care of every little detail to make your stay pleasant. Each room is tastefully furnished. The little kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need if you choose to cook....

We were pleasantly surprised by an unexpected upgrade. The fireplace, textures, luxurious linens made our stay there memorable. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. The bikes were readily available and in great condition.

Our favorite place to stay in Santa Barbara. We've been staying at the Harbor House Inn for over 10 years now, and make an effort to stay here a few times a year. Not cheap, but definitely worth the price.
