One of the best stays in Santa Barbara (and we've been here many times before). The inn strikes a good balance between a motel and a B&B. It's a motel because you can drive your car up to the door of your room, but the interior is in the style of an inn, the room is spacious and well appointed,... More

This hotel is in a good location. It is close to the beach and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. The room had a small kitchenette with a coffee maker. We were given a big basket of complimentary drinks and snacks and home made banana bread. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. There are... More

This is a lovely property, a block from the main drag along the beach, harbor and near the pier. We had a duplex unit, very spacious and well-appointed with a full kitchen. All the staff were very friendly, full of helpful ideas and recommendations for nearby restaurants and activities, which included the possibility of riding one of the hotel's many... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 5 only because I think TA reviews should describe very accurately what you are getting for the price. For example, some of the reviews on this property talk about the nice pool area. They do not have a pool. The "patio" consists of chairs and... More

This is a very nice motel, but it is a motel. I get that Santa Barbara is expensive, but $375 a night, taxes included, can buy a much nicer place. At this rate you expect breakfast (replaced here by a basket of junk food, not replenished after the first night ). You also expect such amenities as bathrobes, in-room safe,... More

we traveled to Santa Barbara during the mid August. The room is very beautiful and big. There is a nice kitchen in the room with full gear. I bought some fresh sea food from the market and cooked them in the room. That was the best part of my trip

We had wonderful time in this hotel. The service was excellent. The hotel itself was quite romantic. The room was big and very comfortable.The pool area was fantastic. It was little pricey, but totally worth it.

Tanya and Allie were the kindest most helpful staff we have ever met. The rooms are 6 star quality from the Bed, linens, towels to all the extras....Beautiful is an understatement. The place was packed with expensive snacks and fruit and the homemade banana bread in the room was to die for. The use of free bikes, beach chairs, beach... More

Great hotel with big rooms, comfortable beds and fantastic location. Short walk from state street, lovely pool area on site and opposite the beach. There was a restaurant next door with lovely food that offered 10% discount to guests at Harbour House Inn. Would definitely stay again, we had a great time here.
