We just finished our stay here in one of their deluxe king studios and I can honestly say it easily deserves my 5 star rating. Here's the breakdown: Booking: Simple as most are. Location: Very good. There are locations that are closer to the beach and State street, however this one is not much further away. And I'd be surprised...

This was probably the best place we stayed on a trip through the Central Coast. Harbor House is a small hotel a couple of blocks from the beach. Each of the rooms was like a small studio apartment, with a small kitchen with a dining table where you could cook some basic meals. The rooms were clean and comfortable and...

Our favorite place to vacation. We love staying at Harbor House Inn. It feels like being at home, but only better. It's a perfect location, spotless and the owners do everything they can to make us feel comfortable. They keep the grounds very spotless and we love the bikes and beach equipment. We come back every year and won't stay...

It was my first visit to Harbor House Inn. The room 2A is very roomy and well taken care of. Everyone was really kind and helpful. Parking is a little tight but you are able to also park on the street. We really enjoyed the basket with all the goodies (plenty and such a good variety). The room is very...

Room 2A had all we wanted. It's spacious. Has a wet bar, great jetted tub, private patio, good wifi, and the property is walking distance to the beach and great dining. Toma's was excellent for dinner.The original Sambo's is equally close for breakfast and has an interesting history. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. A great experience.

A last minute online search for one night in Santa Barbara led us to the Harbor House Inn. Our room was delightful and we even had a small private patio. There are also areas in front to sit and relax with beautifully potted plants, as well as, complimentary beach cruiser bikes for guests. I would highly recommend this wonderful inn.

We found Harbor House Inn on TripAdvisor and booked our room a few days before arrival. Management was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants, etc. Our room was truly beautiful; an older building that has been lovingly remodeled and restored. We had a full kitchen, very nice remodeled bathroom, closet with terry robes, very comfortable bed and a...
