"Great experience in Santa Barbara"
It is an excellent location, just across the beach and a very nice area. It is an historic site and has been preserved beautifully.Service is amazing and all the staff members are very helpful and friendly. We spent there only one night (and received a great upgrade). We are planning to return in the near future for a longer stay and bring along our kids

"Amazing retreat in the hills above Montecito"
We had a wonderful 4 night stay here. The hotel is so beautiful and the service is excellent and friendly. The restaurants and room service are excellent. The rooms are very unique. They range from small private luxury cabins to full homes. Very safe area. Sun and stars were amazing. Night time lighting is very low and romantic. Highly recommended, this hotel beckons you back when out sight-seeing and for a future visit! One of the the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Expensive, but worth it. We looked at several other options in the area and were so happy with our choice to stay here despite the extra cost.

"Very nice hotel close to the beach."
We visited in April 2015, older facility but well kept up. Outstanding staff on check in and each morning. Coming from Virginia in the humid south, we expected air conditioning just as a standard but it was not needed at this time of year. Much more reasonable than the hotel across the street where we stayed the last two times we were in Santa Barbara. Comfortable bed and pillows, not like our usual comfort of the Marriott's that we stay in but very close. Easy ample free parking and a very good breakfast each morning. Within walking distance of several stores to food shop, eat, or get toiletries.

"A great location!"
We booked two rooms for a weekend stay with our teen sons. The hotel is adorable and located right across the street from the beach and the harbor and a 3 walk block to Stearn's Wharf and State Street Shops. The free breakfast was great for the kids and the free wine and cheese in the afternoon was great for us! The staff was very friendly and the hotel well-maintained. There are more "luxurious" hotels in the area with spas and such, but you just can't beat this location and this price. Our kids loved the freedom of being able to just head over to the beach whenever they wanted. The pool and hot tub were a big hit as well.

"Beautiful view, spacious room, and friendly staff!"
We had a wonderful stay at the Harbor View Inn, at the end of March, 2015. We had a corner ocean-view room on the 2nd floor (room 203). We could see over Cabrillo Blvd. - straight ahead to the beach, Stearn's Wharf pier was to the left, and the harbor was to the right. The traffic noise level and construction project on Cabrillo was not bad, and did not bother us at all. It was a very short walk across the street to the entrance to Stearn's Wharf and (the beginning of) State St., and just a few minute walk in the other direction brought us to Sambo's pancake diner - a favorite on every SB visit. Our hotel room was spacious, and even had 2 balconies, (but the 2nd balcony overlooked the covered parking area). The front balcony was wonderful - we sat on the lounge chairs and just enjoyed the view. The room, hallways, pool area, and parking areas were all kept very clean, and the landscaping was beautiful. The parking might be a bit challenging at times...but I'm sure the parking attendants could help. The staff was so friendly and helpful - from the people at the front & parking desks, to the housekeeping & room-service staff, to the pool attendant - they always had a smile and a friendly greeting. The pool area was large, and though it was pretty crowded when we went, we still had plenty of room and personal space. We enjoyed our time at this hotel so much, and will definitely return on our next visit to Santa Barbara!

Our experience was great because we have our two small dogs with us and that was everything to us including being in front of the water on the beach in Santa Barbara. Get lots of ice specially in the summer time. We stayed on the first floor it was very peaceful and quiet at night.
