This was our first time to Santa Barbara. Loved our beautiful room and the location! The staff was very friendly. We stayed in the King Suite. The welcome basket was a great added touch. Felt great to no be in a classic hotel room but more a comfortable and beautiful room.

This was a real find for us. It is located close to the beach and has free parking. There is a great cafe nearby called Sambos. The room is comfortable and brilliantly equipped. There was a welcome basket full of goodies. It contained the best banana cake I have ever tasted. The kitchen was small but really well equipped and... More

We had a very nice room that had a full kitchen, king sized bed, sitting area and even a large walk in closet. The room was tastefully decorated and had tall ceilings. The location is great-walking distance to Stearns Wharf, the harbor and many restaurants. We did not get in the car to go anywhere for two days. The room... More

This quaint little seaside cottage is exactly what we needed - just off the beaten path! Rooms are beautifully decorated with warm rich wood furniture that seem to go with the 1930s "escape to yesteryear" feel at seaside experience. However gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, nice cooking utensils... it had all the modern conveniences we needed!

Harbor House has been a favorite for many years. The rooms are so comfortable, every detail well thought-out and high quality. The decor is imaginative yet simple. The staff is so professional, gracious and meticulous.

I will stay here again when I go to Santa Barbara. The queen bedroom room had and outside back patio. There was a small living room and a small kitchen. The decor was excellent and it felt like someone's home not a hotel. They have bicycles your can ride at no extra charge which was fantastic. It's one block from... More
