I cannot say enough good things about this Inn. Our room was perfect and the attention to detail and amenities that the owners put forth in the rooms is above excellent. Superb! From the welcome basked of goodies to the great and comfy bed and living area. This place rates 10 STARS! The price is affordable and they even loan...

This is a Santa Barbara gem... I almost don't want to say how great it was because I want to keep it all to myself! Staff was friendly and helpful... the layout of the inn is really quite lovely with tables, benches, and chairs surround by flowers to sit outside and have a glass of wine with friends or your...

Wonderful space, loving people behind the counter, and all you could wsnt in the kitchen: Mr. coffee maker, a sealed canister of good coffee grounds, etc. Only missing the batch of chocolate chip cookies. See what you can do about that.

We stayed here in one of the annex units. The hospitality of the owners was exceptional. Room cleaned to high standard, air con efficient and silent, bed was more comfortable than have slept in for years! Situated in a quiet and part private residential area, one block to the beach front, several blocks into town. Highly recommended.

Extremely well run property w/very courteous & professional staff. Owner is 'On Property' often. Only 17 rooms, each one unique with attention to detail. Very, very clean! Love the kitchenettes. Great location. Looking forward to my next visit!

We stayed at Harbor House Inn for 4 nights during a recent trip to Santa Barbara. Our room was very comfortable, and it felt more like we were staying in a friend's condo than in a hotel. We were welcomed to our room with a substantial snack basket, full of healthy snacks, juices, and very delicious house made banana bread....

I love the Harbor House Inn. I'm in and out of SB for work every few months and it is always just a great place to stay: friendly service, incredibly comfortable rooms and a great location close to the water. My only critique is that the wireless internet doesn't run super fast (I work with decent sized data files), but...

Great location, friendly staff and high quality accommodations. The Harbor House Inn is only a small property but maintained to the highest standard. Traditional motel style, this place is close to the water and easy walking to local restaurants. We only stayed a short time but we look forward to staying again next time we are in the US.

Everything was pretty perfect at Harbour House in: Lovely rooms which had everything you may need on vacation plus a bit more and very helpful friendly staff. The bikes were good and fun to ride. The location couldn´t have been better and it was a quiet neighbourhood. If we ever came to SB again we would definitely stay at this...
