arrived in Santa Barbara as our second last stop, hotel is fabulous really homely and doesnt have that huge hotel feel. Reception were really friendly and even sent up a bottle of champers as they knew we were on honeymoon. Rooms were huge and had balconys and were nice and quiet too. Santa barbara is a reall lovely relazed location lots of nice places to eat would definately go back and would love to stay here again - highly recommend. Lots of parking too.

I stayed at the Harbor View this weekend. The room was spacious and clean and the location is excellent. Being so close to restaurants and the beach makes this hotel a great choice for exploring Santa Barbara. The pool is nice and has a nice beach view and the poolside food was very good. It's nice to have beverage and food service poolside all day. Our room's view was ok--parton beach view/partial construction view. The room was very loud as we were over the parking lot. The toilet made noise all night as well. Other than the noise at night, I thought the hotel was very nice and a good choice.

Just returned from a two night stay at this wonderful little hotel directly across from the beach. The rooms were large and nicely decorated with beautiful linens on the bed. There were about six pillows on each bed in varying sizes and firmness making it easy to find the right one for myself and the beds were incredibly comfy.

The grounds are lovely and the pool area well maintained. There is a snack bar at the pool with attentive staff offering drinks and other refreshments. There was an eclectic mx of music playing at the pool--not too loud-- adding to the fun and relaxation of the day.

This is a wonderful value and I can't wait to return,

We had picked this hotel online using online reviews.  We have never been to Santa Barbara. You take a  chance and as people say, you never know what you will find!

What a pleasant surprise!
First of all a perfect location for sightseeing! Close to everything!
Staff went above and beyond and we felt very comfortable from the Bellhop, to the front desk to housekeeping. Though not an ocean view, The large king bedroom was warm, so clean, and inviting after a busy day of sightseeing. The staff was very professional and kind. We asked a lot of questions of the area. We appreciated their patience and thoughtfulness. We had a great vacation!

We stayed here for a weekend swim meet with our two kids and many other families from our swim team. It is the perfect location to walk around downtown Santa Barbara. Nice views, large, clean rooms, good service. The pool is small, but nice, with food and beverage service. It is right on Cabrillo Blvd. just off State St. and across from Stearns Wharf. Perfect weekend getaway, and we already booked again for next year! (It is expensive, though, which is the only downside, but that's because of the location and the time of year).
