What a fantastic place! Great location near the beach, wharf and main shopping street with friendly staff, fantastic rooms, a complimentary amenity basked that is better than any we've seen, glorious lounger chairs, luxury linen and towels, and a wonderful bed and pillows. We will return without hesitation.

My room had the most comfortable bed I have ever laid in! I often times have trouble sleeping in hotel beds. Not here! This bed was incredible. The other less important things were all 5 star as well. Tastefully decorated and in a great location. I stayed in the Spanish Garden Inn last time, which is nice but this hotel...

I always feel like I'm home here. Extremely clean, great breakfast basket, and quality linens! The staff is very friendly and remembers me from previous visits. Also, I finally got a chance to use the bikes - very nice!

We very much loved our stay here. They knew exactly what we would want it seemed as we had a huge breakfast basket in our room with all the things you would need to get started - butter, cream for coffee, fruits, banana bread. Very comfortable bed and close to the beach as well.

Beautiful property with ample amenities, excellent customer service, and rooms that contain great attention to design, comfort, and detail. Couples massage package was a delightful treat, as were the complimentary bikes. Location was central to all the local sights and we enjoyed our stay immensely - would come back and definitely recommend!

We had a great one night stay in 2A, very spacious and comfortable. Front desk staff was really helpful and friendly. Excellent dinner at Toma Restaurant just down the street, and good breakfast the next morning at Sambo's, also close by. We will be back!

We both had been married before, so this time we know what we want. The Harbor House Inn it is, at least in Santa Barbara. We don't need champagne and flowers (although we dearly love them!) on this passing-through-town night. We wanted super cute, modestly priced, convenient, and cool. The Harbor House aces all those tests. Cody and Paul, who...

We thought this property was so cute. Everyone we encountered that worked there was very friendly and helpful. Santa Barbara will be very nice when all of the construction is completed, but the downtown is a little sketchy with a definite homeless problem. We were there in the rain, but still managed to enjoy the bikes along the beach. Don't...

We have stayed here numerous times and was always comfy. This time we chose the king room with fireplace thinking it would be great since it was cold. We the fireplace was just nice to look at only. The worst was the room heater. The first night it took more than 4 hours to semi warm up room. The next...

From the moment I arrived until I left, the staff did absolutely everything to make my stay remarkably wonderful--really knowing the restaurants, being very specific regarding my trip into the mountains, suggesting the best places to bike along the coast. I was greeted with a BIG fruit, nuts, and juice basket and encouraged to use one of their bikes to...
