We recently spent 4 nights at the Harbor House Inn. Its in a great location a few minutes walk from the beach. It was very comfortable and we loved room 1 and our little kitchen. This place has bags of personality and makes a refreshing change from lots of bland, minimal hotel rooms. The reception staff were very helpful with info about the local area. And the banana bread was delicious! Loved it!

Welcome/Check-in:- warm friendly and efficient, provided with local map and given good restaurant advice
Bedroom:- room 5 Queen studio -large comfortable Queen bed with lounge area and small but full kitchen
TV not easy to operate, but staff happily assisted with this
Quality of sleep:- excellent, very comfortable bed
Bathroom:- clean and fresh,older style, very good complimentary products.
Breakfast:- As a self admitted, non full service establishment, a breakfast basket is provided for 2+ night stays, including, fruit, cereal bars, juices and a fresh banana loaf. We supplemented this with cereal we bought -perfectly adequate and gives total flexibility on your timings for the day
Parking:- right outside, some spaces a bit tight, no long distances to carry luggage or shopping
Location:- one block from the beach and only a short walk to the harbour and wharf
Check Out:- prepaid,very quick and easy
Staff:- all warm friendly and helpful,
Value for money:- We paid $609 all-in for a 2 night stay in a large room, comparing with what we paid elsewhere in California, this was not excellent value but seems to be the going rate in Santa Barbara. Includes free use of bikes, housekeeping was very good
Would we stay again:- yes

Every once in awhile you happen upon a hotel that is just above and beyond. Harbor House Inn is that kind of hotel. Its a small set of "cottage-like" rooms, but the rooms are so absolutely beautifully appointed that the room is perfect. Its the type of hotel that you just want to hang out in your room all day - even though you are right on the beach in Santa Barbara.

On top of which, we were getting in really late after our nephew's college graduation. We called and let them know we were coming but wouldn't be there till 11. They usually knock off at 10:30, but they waited for us. Not only that, I really needed some ice water, and the desk clerk went out of his way to deliver a couple large bottles of water along with an ice bucket filled with ice - not sure where he found it at 11pm at night, but he did.

I cannot more highly recommend the Harbor House Inn. The is the ONLY hotel I would stay in anywhere in the Santa Barbara area from now on.

My husband & I loved this place! close to everything. Staff were so helpful. Rooms were decorated so nice with a small kitchen area to include pots, pans, utensils, dish soap, etc. They thought of EVERY detail to make your stay comfortable & relaxing. You even get a Welcome Basket of goodies upon arrival to include a loaf of fresh baked Banana Bread- and fresh Orchids in your room!!!! We will definitely go back!
