Great location, clean room very comfortable, walking distance to everything. Close to zoo and marina and wharf. The only drawback was nice seating outside each room that some people decided to use at 2 am

Staying 3 nights at Harbor House on Bath St Santa Barbara. Just perfect and a welcome respite after 10 days into our US travels. Great location - easy walk to Stearns Wharf, Amtrak Station, State St restaurants and shops. One block from the shoreline. Good business facilities which we needed; comfortable clean and tastefully furnished unit. Good size kitchen with...

Cute, boutique hotel. Staff is extremely warm and welcoming. We stayed in the Deluxe Spa King bedroom, and it was beautiful! Very spacious. About a block and a half away from the beach, so within walking distance to pier, marina, and great restaurants. Very quiet. We purchased the breakfast basket since we were only staying one night and had to...

Stayed in the Deluxe Queen Studio with Kitchen #Eight. This was a great experience. Very clean and organized. The room had a nice basket full of goodies welcoming us. Staff were very welcoming and pleasant. Upon arrival they informed us of some good restaurants and beaches in the area. Location is within walking distance of the marina, pier, beach, shopping...

The harbor House inn is awesome. We had room 116-C with fireplace, full kitchen, and king bed. It was one of the best rooms (top 25) I have ever stayed in and I've traveled a lot of 30 year career. Linens lovely. Towels and bath mats wonderful. Shower head water pressure good.

My husband and I spent one night here and will definitely come back again. It is one block away from the water. It is very quaint, comfortable and the staff couldn't be nicer. We enjoyed riding the free bike cruisers that they supplied.

2016年9月にモントレーからラスベガスへのロードトリップ中、1泊する予定で予約しました。到着すると、町はとてもかわいらしく、お部屋は清潔に整えられており、キッチンには一通り必要なものが揃っていてほこり一つなく、家具のセンスも町の雰囲気に合っていて、長旅の疲れを癒してくれる雰囲気に満ちていました。 残念ながらそのあと、急きょモントレーに戻らなければならない事態が発覚し、結果的に宿泊することができなくなってしまいましたが、私たちのトラブルに対しオーナーのClintが大変親身になって的確な対応をしてくださり、400kmのロードトリップに備えて少しだが持っていきなさいと事務所内にある冷蔵庫から食品や飲み物を提供してくださる等、心温まるおもてなしをいただき感動しました。また、もしも夜の間に戻ってきた場合に備え、部屋の鍵のありかを教えていただくなど、個人経営だからこその柔軟でゲストの思いに寄り添った親切な対応だと感じました。今回は宿泊することができず残念でしたが、素晴らしいオーナーに出会うことができ、私たちの旅の良い思い出となりました。次回はサンタバーバラでのんびり過ごし、ハーバーハウスインに2泊くらいしたいです。 On a road trip from Monterey to Las Vegas, we were supposed to stay at this inn one night. Outside was quite silent, you can easily reach bay area or fisherman's wharf on foot. The room itself was very pretty, clean and filled with heartwarming atmosphere. We were very excited to stay but due to some reasons, we...

Wow! What a wonderful Inn. Our room was just updated. You can see all the time that was put in decorating. As we waited for our room, Clint offered us water. What stood out was the owner, Karen, getting down and dirty helping getting our room ready. Thank you Karen and your entire Crew. We will be back!
