Boutique hotel situated steps from the ocean

Situated steps from the beach, this boutique hotel provides the ideal venue for your Santa Barbara stay.  Lounge by the glittering pool on the sun-dappled terrace, head to Spa Beaumontia for a relaxing treatment and enjoy hand-crafted Mediterranean fare at the hotel’s restaurant. Set moments from Steam Wharf and a brief drive away from the centre of Santa Barbara, this is the ideal base for a stay at on the affectionately named ‘American Riviera’.

  • Relax by the secluded pool
  • Excellent location close to the ocean
  • Enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment
  • Dine on-site
  • Beautiful Mediterranean-style architecture

A superb hotel

Bromley, United Kingdom

We were so pleased we booked the Harbor View Inn for our 4 nights in Santa Barbara whilst we were touring California. We were delighted when we were shown to our room. We had an excellent view of the beach and a balcony. The room was large with a perfect en suite. The location was perfect for exploring Santa Barbara and near to the Wharf and many restaurants. The service was really good. This was the best hotel we stayed at in California.

Amazing Property

Riverbank, California

My mum and I stayed at the Harbor Inn Santa Barbara from Tuesday May 1st and checked out Saturday May 5th. Our experience was absolutely fantastic, the rooms were so very clean, the staff was great in all areas. The beds were so comfortable, had a Kurig coffee machine, safe, ironing board, great hair dryer, powerful shower, lovely L'Occtaine soaps, shampoo, conditioner, lotion. And to add even a more thoughtful gift there was a bott We would definitely recommend the Harbor Inn to others and would come back again.
