The room is perfect and there is a kitchen and include everything, they also offer some tea, chocolate and coffee. The bed is king size and it very soft. The outside environment is so beautiful. There are some sofa and chairs, so you can lay down and enjoy it. Overall, it's a best room that I have ever live before....

What a wonderful inn! Great staff! Cozy, with everything you need to be comfortable. Suites with full kitchens , comfortable beds & nice bathroom. Easy to park with close proximity to the beach & pier. Breakfast basket that lasted a week . Sambo's & Brophy Brothers within walking distance. Loved staying there! Felt at home even away from home.

We have stayed at Harbor House twice and both times have been lovely. The convenience of the Inn allows for harbor strolls and easy access to all tourists sites. Having a kitchen makes all the difference when staying several days. The room is beautifully stocked and attendance by the staff is prompt and courteous.

Great Hotel, very comfortable room, lovely amenities inside the room. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable stay after a long haul flight from London. The room was very clean with generous bathroom bits eg robes, plenty of towels, shampoo etc. Would recommend taking the bikes for a cruise along the water front. Hotel very close to restaurants and...

Very nice stay on a very nice property. Well worth the money. There are bikes available to guests. A gem that is in walking distance from the Amtrak Train Depot. A great place to stay in Santa Barbara!

After an extended stay in Palm Springs we wanted to end off our California holiday with a visit to Beautiful Santa Barbara and a return to Harbor House Inn. We were warmly greeted by staff and a large basket of fruit, juices, delicious banana bread and other goodies awaited us in our room. We woke up the first morning and...

We stayed a night and it was great. We loved being able to use the cruiser bikes to ride over to Butterfly Beach. The staff were lovely and very knowledgable about the history of the area. Room was huge, comfy bed, shower was good.

The Harbor House Inn has become our favorite go-to spot for a trip to Santa Barbara. The rooms are adorable and very well appointed with everything you need for morning coffee (there is even 1/2 & 1/2 in the frig), and for cooking a nice meal if you are so inclined. But why would you do that with literally dozens...
