We go to Santa Barbara frequently and have stayed at most of the hotels around West Beach. But by far, our experience at Harbor House has always been the best! The rooms are immaculate and even though the property is older (as is every place in West Beach), the decor of each room is nicely updated and the kitchens or kitchenettes are well stocked with everything you need to make meals, should you decide to do so. Also, these are small things, but I love that each room has a large safe big enough to put two laptops and more; love the bath robes for lounging; and love that the rooms come with two suit case stands instead of the typical one (so my husband and I don't have to put one suit case on the floor or chair). Finally, I love not feeling like your being "nickel and dimed" to death....bikes and beach stuff are complimentary, free wifi, free DVDs, and that lovely complimentary welcome basket--a nice and yummy touch!. The owner is a true hostess. Thank you!

We stayed here one night and I wish we could have spent a couple of days, the room was so cute, modern with a very period feel with antique furnishings and a small kitchen, very comfortable with beautiful gardens outside the door and bikes to use for free! Just a block away from Sterns pier and dinner at an Italian restaurant around the corner was delightful. Shower was a little small but the room seemed like a modern blast from the past which was great. Staff were excellent.

The Hotel is very close to the beach and in nice quiet neighborhood. We had a very clean and well decorated King size bed with well-equipped Kitchen. Free rental of bicycles. Touring with bicycle around the beach and to downtown is great and fun.

We were quite happy with our stay at the inn. The staff was friendly, and we had a nice basket of snack items and juices in our room when we arrived. The room had a small kitchen which was well outfitted, even though we did not cook beyond making tea. It was very pleasant overall and quiet in the evening.

The area was perfect - within walking distance of State Street and just a couple blocks from the ocean. We were attending a wedding at the Biltmore on Saturday and found this to be a nice location, just a 10 minute drive to the Biltmore. We did feel that the price was a tad high for the size of the room.

They also have bikes available to take out, which would be nice for a more leisurely trip. Harbor House Inn is surrounded by other inns, but this was not an issue. Parking on the property is tight, but we easily found street parking nearby.

Room Tip: Since all the rooms are different, I would recommend that you view the website tours of the rooms, or call the inn and they will help you select a room.

We spent 3 evenings at the Harbour house on our trip along the Californian coast. We were made very welcome . There were bikes, beach chairs , towels etc at our disposal .. The rooms were clean and the bed really comfortable . There was garden furniture to sit outside for pre dinner drinks before we walked to restaurants and the beach was really close by .
