We stayed a night and it was great. We loved being able to use the cruiser bikes to ride over to Butterfly Beach. The staff were lovely and very knowledgable about the history of the area. Room was huge, comfy bed, shower was good.

The Harbor House Inn has become our favorite go-to spot for a trip to Santa Barbara. The rooms are adorable and very well appointed with everything you need for morning coffee (there is even 1/2 & 1/2 in the frig), and for cooking a nice meal if you are so inclined. But why would you do that with literally dozens...

We stayed here on our honeymoon in 2007, one night, and enjoyed it very much. When we made a return trip to Santa Barbara recently I thought it'd be fun to stay here again even though it was pricey (for us). Not so much. When I made the reservation I told the woman I spoke to that I hoped to...

We had a fantastic stay at the Harbor House Inn. The hotel is beautiful, charming and extremely clean. Our room was recently updated and felt brand new. Our bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it. We used the cruiser bicycles the hotel offers, complimentary to ride on the boardwalk to breakfast. I can't say enough...

We were on a road trip and a family member recommended that we stay here. We booked it 2 days in advance and were very happy with everything.

Wow! Very clean, spacious. Wonderful to have the kitchen with not just a microwave and fridge, but stove top and sink. Organic bath supplies. Beautiful breakfast basket for multiple day stay. Beach bikes free to ride. One block from the beach. Reasonable cost. I would definitely stay here again.

From the minute we walked into the office to check-in we could tell that these people really take the guest experience seriously. The front desk staff was pleasant, cordial and competent. When we walked into our room I was impressed by how roomy it felt and the bathroom is big by anyone's standards. I'm a clean freak and this place...
