I have travelled a lot recently and experienced varying degrees of service, quality and comfort. Quite simply this is one of the BEST places I have stayed in, not just in the US but the world. Efficient, thoughtful customer service with, just like Santa Barbara itself, a relaxed laid-back vibe. Immaculate rooms/studios providing everything you could possibly want for a... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. Off season prices are very good. In season a lot higher but the amenities are great. Parking is right in front of your room. There is a complimentary basket of goodies (juices, snacks, fruit, and bread). Rooms have a full kitchen and are large. The staff is very helpful and courteous.... More

We stayed here for one night....but wish it was for longer. The owner Paul was so helpful and very friendly too. Our room was a deluxe queen (room 6). Comfortable, homely and super clean. We were celebrating my partners 40th birthday and Paul kindly provided us with a welcome basket full of goodies! Wish we had time to take advantage... More

Our suite at the Harbor House Inn far exceeded our expectations. It was convenient to Stearns Wharf and the Funk Zone wineries and restaurants. Our room was full of charm with a delightful sitting area, a very functional kitchen and a very comfortable queen size bed. The kitchen had a full size coffee maker and a "limitless" supply of excellent... More

Visited Santa Barbara on Sunday 24th of January after business trip to LA and booked the hotel late in the evening while sitting at Starbucks. What a pleasant surprise it was, what a wonderful and quiet place. Near the beach, walking distance to the city center. A very dedicated receptionist made me feel very welcome and provided good tips of... More

Love this place, the room was super cute, clean and fully equipped. They also have a movie library for you to borrow from. Having the kitchen was super convenient. The location was perfect, almost walking distance to a lot of reaturants/entertainment or a cheap uber ride. Would definitely go back again

We stayed for two nights. The room was very cozy and charming. Everything was small/cute sized, perfect for hiding from the rain. It had a fully implemented and stocked kitchen with a table, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The property is equally charming with very friendly staff. They have free bikes in good condition and DVD's. The property is located... More

We had a wonderful three nights here. Our two sons joined us, one with his wife, the other with his girlfriend, so we had three rooms altogether. Each was spacious, clean and well appointed. The grounds are clean with a comfortable sitting area and you are but a block and a half from the beach. Upon arriving at your room... More

Sought last minute overnight accommodations in Santa Barbara through Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Simply put, my husband said, "If I could design the perfect hotel/inn/vacation rental, this would be it." Every detail had been well thought out - kudos to an amazing staff! If in SB, stay here.
