We loved walking to the piers and restaurants from the HHI. We also loved the separate rooms and kitchen there. The staff is very helpful and told me how to walk to a local market to get food for breakfast. The flowers and surroundings are also quite lovely. We didn't use the bikes but many people were. All in all,... More

Harbour House Inn is a fabulous place to stay . The rooms have lovely antique furniture and lovely little kitchens . Also there are tables outside surrounded by lovely plants . No attention to detail has been missed right down to by cycles, kid's boards and beach chairs and towels . The breakfast basket we were left was delicious and... More

We stayed here for 1 night, found it on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We had a standard room with a double bed, air con & a small kitchen/diner. The service was excellent, very friendly & helpful, but not in your face. It is in an area with lots of similar buildings and isn't a large 5 star hotel... More

Unfortunately I submitted this review accidentally for the Harbor View Inn which is nearby, but I don't know anything about it. Harbor House Inn has an excellent location. We walked from the Amtrak station. Beautiful location on a very quiet street, yet close to the beach, the Amtrak station, and the downtown and waterfront shuttles. Every staff member we came...

I was a little reluctant to stay here based on some of the decor photos which made it like very country and outdated.. This is not the case. This is one of the most pleasant, clean, neat, and well stocked aces we've stayed. The room was beautiful with many windows which could open to hear the ocean waves and let... More

My friends and I stayed here for one night on our way to Pismo Beach from LAX. Check-in was easy and we were made to feel welcome. The room was tastefully decorated, a great space and spotless. I'd most definitely stay here again, without hesitation. Location-wise, it's around a 20 (slow, meandering) minute walk to upper State Street. The neighbourhood... More

I wish we had been able to stay for more than just one night. It is as charming as it looks. The area is quiet and safe and close to so many things. The welcome was warm, hassle free and helpful. We were in the "deluxe king bedroom" and it had everything we could want. The décor is comfortable and... More

We stayed in 118A which was very spacious and well kept. I would be happy to live here permanently! Not the cheapest but Santa Barbara isn't a cheap place overall. We were welcome by a polite man on reception and received a food hamper as we were staying 2 nights. A great benefit are the complimentary bicycles which we took... More

We stayed at the Habor House Inn for one night. The staff we encountered were all very nice and helpful. The Inn is close to the train station and very close to the beach. The rooms all seem to be decorated differently which make them all unique. Our room #3 had a small kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and microwave, things... More

We just stumbled upon this great Inn while stressing out on where to stay as we were traveling with our dog. We normally stay at Fess Parker but, they were sold out and we are glad they were. They only let pets in their studio rooms which was a total bonus. The room was large and had a full kitchen... More
