We checked on line and called and booked direct from Australia months before we arrived. Friendly, great on the phone - helpful. We had driven from Las Vegas and arrived late in the day - tired, little bit out of sorts after staying at Trump. Arrived at Harbor House Inn - friendly, warm welcome. Really nice welcome snacks and drinks... More

We wanted good wheelchair-accessible accommodation within walking distance of the ocean and near restaurants. We were not disappointed by Harbor House Inn. Our room was clean, attractively decorated and comfortable, and it was only a short distance to the water. The service was prompt and friendly. The breakfast basket was a nice welcoming touch.

We recently stayed at the Harbor House Inn. It was a very quaint place with each room individually decorated quite nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful. Aaron spent time talking about the area and gave great suggestions on where to eat. It was located close to the water and had great areas nearby to walk and enjoy the views.... More

The city has lots of cheaper and more expensive options, but the HHI combines many details that will make your stay incredibly pleasant. Great service, attention to details, great bedding, big suites, cosy environment and a reasonable value for money ration. I will definitely come back and recommend it to friends.

My wife and I took a weekend getaway to Santa Barbara to see Gabriel (Fluffy) Iglesias at the Arlington. (Great Show) I booked us into a king suite at the Harbor House Inn that had a kitchenette and fireplace. There was a welcome basket on the kitchen table filled with lots of fresh fruit and goodies, (the fresh baked banana... More

We stayed here on an extended trip around the States. It was the best value for money of all our stops. Was very hospitable - free bikes, near to the seafront and the welcome basket was beyond comparison. As an English person, I liked the selection of teas especially. As we are likely to be in LA again, we hope... More

We have stayed here twice, and both times we loved it. The rooms are charming, it is a short walk to the beach, and there are many great touches that set this place apart. A yummy welcome basket, free bike rentals, and especially the warm people... Paul goes out of his way to make your stay special. He was so... More

The hotel is not so big, no luxury, but it is warm. It is different then big hotel chains. It is like a charming B&B in Europe. The location is good. I liked particular the free bicycle. Nice for going to the beach and chopping. Like backhome in the netherlands, but then with a blue sky and palmtrees.
