This hotel has it all, fabulous rooms, large comfortable beds, fantastic bathrooms. The staff are friendly and helpful, the car parking is ample. The location is across the road from the beach and pier. We mistakenly only stayed the one night on our trip south, a big mistake, at least two would be much better. You can catch a bus...

The Harbor View is in a great location, has everything you expect a good hotel to have. The staff are really friendly and make you feel welcome. Parking was $10/night, and was in the back of the hotel. The hotel has a coffee shop and bar/restaurant next door which patrons get 10% off at. Rooms were a good size, with...

Arrived at Harbor View as we made our way down the coast, very easy to find and a great location. The hotel is on the main road running along the sea front very close to the pier and harbour. The views out the front of the hotel are great! Not only is the hotel ideally positioned for the beach and...

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...

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...

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...
