We stayed at the Harbor View Inn for 1 night in August. Santa Barbara is absolutely beautiful, it’s a shame we only got to spend 1 night there. The hotel is very clean and the staff are helpful. The room was very large with a separate dressing area and a large balcony. We didn't pay for a view ad therefore got a view of the car park which was unfortunate.

The swimming pool area is ideal, a large swimming pool, whirlpool and plenty on sun beds. There is a small pool-side bar but we did not use this. There is also a small gym with a few machines in (though it is quite basic).

The hotel is right on the sea front. The pier is just over the road and the walk into the town (where most of the bars and restaurants are located) is only 10-15 minutes - there is also a shuttle service that they inform you about at reception. Parking was $10 for the 24 hours which was not unreasonable.

The negative - the wifi connection is poor, especially if you have an apple product. We could only get signal in the lobby area.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra for a view, the view of the Harbour would have been very good

We had one night here, came on a walk in and not disappointed, great amenities, large room, nice balcony and great staff. The location across from beach and pier makes this an ideal choice for Santa Barbara.

Great location! Lovely place. Staff were very professional and informative. We were given an upgrade which blew us away! Beautiful room. The view wasn't great (hence why they spared the upgrade) the view was of the carpark, but we didn't care as we had a balcony and a beautiful room that was huge!!!! We were over the moon. Would definitely stay again!

This is a lovely hotel, with friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Its not luxurious, but more than good enough for an excellent stay. As it was Labor Day weekend, the hotel was full, so the pool area became very full and it was not possible to find a sunbed. However, it is a good sized pool area with sufficient sun and shade available.
The hotel is very handy for the wharf, and the pedestrianised shopping area. I have nothing bad to say about the experience.

My wife and I are on a tour from LA to Vegas via Sanfrancisco. We wanted to stay near the ocean in Santa Barbara for the first few nights after our flight from the UK. We had read good reviews about this hotel and our experience has certainly lived up to them. Very freindly welcome, fabulous location and large clean and well equipped room. Parking on site is a huge bonus for only $10 per day.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a pool or sea view. The road at the front of the hotel is quite busy though.
