Harbor House Inn is a great location ito stay in Santa Barbara. Perfect location. Walking distance from the wharf and State Street. It's a place that really makes you feel at home. We stayed in the deluxe king bedroom with spa - a fantastic room.

Very nice place to stay. Had a whole kitchen in our room. The staff was very friendly and the accommodations were great. It was just a minute or two walk from the water. They had bikes for us to use which was included in the stay which we used to ride along the beach. Very nice place and we would... More

Comfortable ,clean and well appointed. Not cheap, but a good value for your money. Everything in walking distance. The property , the location , and the staff is a 10. The welcome basket is an awesome extra you get with a 2 night stay. I highly recommend.

Great location, a complete kitchen with complimentary basket, coffee and tea. Paul made reservations for us when OPENTABLE had no slots. Buy groceries at Ralphs and save a bundle on restaurant food. Parking out front and a nice courtyard seating area.

Loved Harbor House. The location is conveniently located to the beach, walking distance to the Amtrak train station, pier and so many sights. We took the sightseeing bus to get our bearings and enjoyed the many facts shared by the boys driver. There is also a bus that takes you right downtown to shop, dine, or just sightsee. Santa Barbara... More

Wow. What a great hotel. Right off the main drag so it is both quiet and convenient. Our room was 118B and we were extremely impressed. Hardwood floors and a small kitchen made this a perfect stay. The bed and sheets were amazing and provided a great night's sleep. We walked to Toma for dinner and it was a very... More
