The Harbor Inn was such a wonderful place to stay. We checked in and immediately jumped on beach cruisers to ride two blocks to the beach and get a sense of direction. There are also beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards available. The decor was special. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our short stay except we will be back.
Nothing not to like
Unique one of a kind furnishings . Very relaxing . Easy access to beach and wharf.only hotel where you could brew fresh coffee and have refrigerated coffee creamer
Not a thing.
Perfect location and clean, free bycicles are a big +
We rode Amtrak to Santa Barbara and Harbor House was an easy walk from the train station and to everything else we wanted to see over the weekend. Our room was very thoughtfully put together. The kitchen was much better equipped than we expected (I wish I knew what kind of coffee they provided--it was better than what I drink at home!) and the dining table by the window was perfect. Our goodie basket was generous and included some fruit and healthy options. Having DVDs available was convenient for evenings and a perfect opportunity to catch up on some movies that we had missed in the theatre. We are both slim so the chair and 1/2 provided in room 3 worked for movie viewing.
Our first impression was that the living area was dark but we were only in the room during evenings anyway so it turned out to be a non-issue.
proximity to the beach, cute decorations, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, cleanliness
Convenient access to beach and State street venues. Staff was very friendly and responsive. Extra nice touch was bountiful gift basket with plenty of goodies (fresh baked banana bread, fruit assortment, healthy beverages, liter of water, and snack bars).
On property parking is a bit cramped. Room and bathroom was on the small side but okay for one or two nights. Somewhat overpriced when compared to nearby properties/amenities.
We loved the cleanly roomy comfort of a home away from home. Not fancy but has all the little touches to make you feel at home such as a large comfortable bed, a rollaway bed for our pre-teen, a nice-sized fully equipped kitchen, nice closet space and a safe. LOVED the welcome basket of food and having free bikes on first come basis.
A little occasional distant train noise at night was annoying, not street noise as the hotel is located on a quiet street a few blocks from State Street. However, that problem is more than made up for by being within walking distance to Cabrillo, the pier, and nice restaurants and shopping on State St. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Everything - the staff, the room, the in room kitchen facilities. The location, the offer of using a bicycle from the owners garage. Only 11 rooms (I think) so such a personal place.
It is a fair walk to State Street - best to take the car or cycle. Or there is a free trolley which runs from the Pier up State Street.
We loved the location and the free use of bikes and towels. The staff was exceptionally helpful. We left several items behind in our room and they very kindly mailed them back to us.
Only complaint was the comfort level of the pull out bed. No support. Might be OK for a little person but our big 16 year old was very uncomfortable.
Personable staff, convenient location, comfortable and roomy studios. Great free bike loan added a memorable experience of cycling along the shore at sunset to our stay.
Like all property in Santa Barbara this is overpriced especially without a breakfast basket for a one night stay.
Great location close to beach/pier and downtown. Cruiser bikes free to use were awesome. The bed and pillows were SO comfortable! The breakfast basket is a must - the value is amazing and homemade banana bread was delicious! Small home-like atmosphere.
We arrived late at night, keys were all waiting, rooms were great, with the best bedding I have ever seen. Well equipped rooms.. Home from home.. but better !! Highly recommend..
Wonderful quiet, cozy property -- so many lovely touches, it's hard to count them all. From the super-comfortable bed, the brickwork courtyard and parking area, the comfortably tasteful flowers and decorations, the sound-insulated rooms -- it all combined to make this one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Thank you!
Very minor -- the in-courtyard parking was limited. However, parking on the surrounding side streets was available and the area was pretty secure and quiet.
staff is very friendly, bicycle can be used for free, location is very good, walk to beach only 5 mins.
Person at the front desk was very nice. She made us feel very comfortable.
Bed could have been more comfy if slightly bigger in size. Though, no complains as rest of the things quite compensated for this miss. Wish we would have stayed one more day.
The location is just 1 block from the ocean which is nice because it keeps traffic noise down. Loved the cute free bikes. Had room 2a - warm, inviting, comfortable décor, lots of natural light. Great bed! Breakfast basket was filled with all sorts of treats, enough for at least 3 breakfasts.
I felt it's overpriced. Extra taxes tacked on which increases the total bill. I realize they are city taxes - Santa Barbara is expensive. Will stay here again but will wait for a special celebration.
We loved everything about this place, so much so that we booked to stay an extra day while we were there. The staff were super helpful and gave great advise on where to go and what to do. The lovely package of food and drink was amazing, the home baked banana bread went down a storm. The bed was amazing, felt like a child it was so big, and it was SOOOO comfy. If we could have we'd have stayed longer. If we're ever back in Santa Barbara we'll 100% be staying here again.
I loved the warmth, comfort, cleanliness, the staff, THE BED! every detail to make it a place like home. I would recommend it to everyone I know who was going to visit Santa Barbara. Rick P.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful Very close to beach
I loved this place ! They have thought of everything! There are beach towels sun cream bikes surf boards etc . lively space outside to sit and read in the sun. One block from the beach. Bed was über comfortable and although room was smallish ,it was very nicely decorated.
We stayed here for 3 nights. we stayed in a corner room (204) which was spacious, immaculate, quiet and very comfortable. The bathroom, including spa bath, was huge and very well equipped. We enjoyed the generous welcome pack and each morning, we were able to prepare a good breakfast in the kitchen area before setting out to explore Santa Barbara. The walking distance from the wharf, beach and State Street is just right. We could not fault this lovely inn, the best place/room we stayed in on our 12 day Californian road trip.
We had a fantastic stay here! The service was outstanding and having the bikes there was a great touch. I would recommend anyone to stay here!
It felt like home
This is our second stay at harbor House, and we absolutely loved it. It is less than a block from the beach, and less than a walkable mile to downtown SB and its iconic State street. Once we got there, we parked the car and forgot it, and walked everywhere. The hotel staff and owners bend over backwards to make sure your stay is great. The rooms are beautiful, and the local scenery is the best.
Can't say that I found anything not to like, except maybe the WiFi was spotty and slow, but who needs WiFi on a vacation anyway?
Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, great extras like bikes to ride
