Me and my wife spent our one year wedding anniversary in Santa Barbara and this was our first time visiting Harbor view inn. There is so much great scenery of the city surrounding this hotel, and the rooms were completely spacious and I don't believe i've ever experienced hotel staff as friendly as the ones I encountered here. After a perfect weekend anniversary trip my wife had realized she left her jacket behind in the room which would normally be long gone at any other hotel however Jocelyn and Berenice which I believe was the manager made arrangements to ship it back to our home, this will be our new and only hotel destination from on while visiting Santa Barbara.

Hotel's Favourite
Location, staff, views, rooms, personality. This hotel has it all! Customer service is top notch. Room service is great. Very centrally located for walking to Stearns wharf or up State street for shopping. Plenty of great restaurants in easy walking distance. If you are staying in Santa Barbara, WHY AREN'T YOU HERE??

After living in sb for 10+ years there was a specific location I wanted to stay in.... This was it! Right on the beach and near state street! We were worried about checking in late but Pauline alleviated all our worries... She assured it was ok, helped us with parking, and was sweet as can be during check in! Thanks Pauline much appreciated. We told her it was our anniversary and She even put a few small touches In our room. Very thoughtful. We met a few other staff like shayanna and Jason. We are handicapped and they went out of their way, very unpresumptously, to get staff to help with our bags. Thanks again! The room was nice and the staff was nicer. Can't wait to stay here again. 6, not 5, stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Peace love and harbor view! ✌️♥️🌊

I called to book with short notice and spoke with Jr. I let him know why I was interested in my stay and he truly took it away from there. He made booking fast, easy and even fun! When I arrived the front desk was beyond helpful. The room, the view, the location, plus the customer service and hospitality was more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you so much Jr, and Harbor View Inn crew! I will be staying here again very soon : )

We visited Santa Barbara for my mother’s birthday and could not have had a better stay. The rooms were clean, the location was perfect, and the employees were very nice. Check in process was very easy as well. Highly recommend this hotel!
