Overall, the hotel was nice. Staff was friendly, it was clean, the food service was good and the WiFi was strong in the room. The property is older than we expected, however. The room was small and needed an update on decorations badly. But the bed was new and was upgraded from a queen to a king (which may one reason why the room felt small). Our major complaint was the price. We expected a more upscale hotel for the price we paid. As for the hotel itself, we would stay there again. But we will not do so, as it is too pricey for what we got.
"Nice and close to the marina and some restaurants"
Hotel guest were nice and the rooms had updated bath & kitchen, bed was comfortable. My only complaint is that our room sits next to the car wash and when they started washing cars in the morning I was awaken.
We returned to this hotel because of its location, directly across from the beach. It is an easy walk to Stearns Wharf and State St. This hotel has A/C, pool, room service, etc. The beds are comfortable, room very clean, and staff very friendly and helpful. We treat ourselves to the "Ocean View" room which is fantastic!!

Located oceanfront in downtown Santa Barbara, Harbor View Inn is across from Stearns Wharf, and less than 3 miles from the …More
My girlfriend and I were hesitant to book at first as it is a "hotel and hostel" and we had never stayed at a hostel before. We read many positive reviews so decided to try it anyway and are happy that we did.
The hotel is in an amazing location, just a block up from the urban wine trail (so fun!) and backs on to State street (great restaurants and shops). It is also a quick walk down the the beach and pier.
The rooms are very cute with unique decor (mermaid wallpaper, etc), which we loved.
The bathrooms are sleek and modern and are very clean.
The pool chairs were hilarious and very fun.
Would recommend to anyone! Younger crowd 20-40
We stayed in a spacious room! The welcome basket was such a sweet touch. The staff was friendly and the check in/check out process was a breeze. The free rentals of the bike beach cruisers were a bonus! A short block and a half from the beach...perfect! I would definitely come back and recommend Harbor House Inn to all!
We absolutely loved the atmosphere here. It was close enough to downtown amd the beach.
We loved the room. It was smaller than we were used to but we never really use the space in bigger rooms. It was perfect! The bathroom was different and we didn't mind.
The staff was very helpful! Answered all our questions and was very polite!
We want to come back and stay in the room to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
Separated from East Beach by Stearns Wharf, a stone's throw from Santa Barbara's many dining and shopping destinations, West Beach is the place for adventurers looking to go kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing. With views of boats coming and going from Santa Barbara's main harbor, West Beach is also the ideal spot from which to enjoy the annual 4th of July and New Year's fireworks shows.
