Hard to get service at restaurant bar. The bartenders seemed put off when I had to ask for a napkin or silverware. Didn't think the California attitude would apply to the service staff at a hotel....but I guess it does for some.

"Nice hotel close to beach and town"
I would absolutely stay here again. Very nice amenities. Welcoming staff, easy to get to, and while the 101 is directly behind the hotel, and I had a room facing it, I could not hear freeway traffic.

"Perfect relaxing getaway!"
Absolute pleasure! Loved the patio seating all through out the hotel. Just take a seat and enjoy the view from all around the grounds. Loved the wood floors in the rooms. I felt like I was in a cottage full of character. Very clean and well kept. Will definitely go again. The breakfast was a plus! The staff was extremely courteous. Just what we needed.

"Great location, amenities, room"
Stayed in a king suite. Things we liked: Spacious - good sized room with large bathroom & kitchen. Property amenities - free to borrow: beach chairs, bicycles, beach towels, beach toys, DVDs. Service - everyone is super nice in a genuine way. Location - just a couple blocks from the water and a quick walk to Stearns Wharf. Quiet neighborhood most of the time, other than the occasional train (tracks crossing & station several blocks away). Funk zone is walkable from Harbor House Inn, though we didn't go.

"Professional staff made us feel welcome"
For a family with children, this hotel was great. There is an included, cooked to order breakfast every morning of your stay. Coffee and hot tea are always available in the lobby. In the afternoon hours, freshly baked cookies were available. And to make things even better, there is a hospitality wine and cheese hosted by the hotel for all guests Mondays through Thursdays. My kids loved the pool and spa. The grounds were well maintained and manicured, with lots of greenery and flowers. There is also a Catholic Church right next door if you are so inclined. The hotel is conveniently located next to several restaurants. We found it a convenient location to access Lake Cachuma and Solvang. The staff were so courteous and accomodating. We felt like family. This hotel served our needs well and I highly recommend it.

Hotel is excellent value, the rooms are comfortable and the exterior with its lovely landscaping/flowers is very inviting. In addition to the pool, there is also an charming restaurant on the premises with an extensive menu and an excellent and super friendly staff. The same is true for the hotel personnel, friendly, helpful, in short they added in making the stay in Santa Barbara a time to remember and of course a good excuse to return!

"Resort Ambience on Upper State in Santa Barbara"
The hotel was on upper State on a busy street several miles from downtown Santa Barbara. However it was an unexpected oasis with two separate areas of beautifully landscaped grounds, blue tiled pools and hot tub, and outside fire pits. The rooms were spacious with comfortable pillow top beds and immaculate sheets. Free water and fruit were replaced every day. There was an outside balcony for relaxing and enjoying the warm weather. The one slight down side of the room we stayed in was an end location that was not poolside as advertised since the balcony overlooked the gate and entry to the pool, but not the pool itself. I did like being on the second floor however.
