Harbor View Inn

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’.

Good experience

Peoria, Illinois

Great location, very close to the beach, the wharf and State Street. I stayed in the main building and had a nice, big room with a balcony. I have no complaints about this hotel. Staff was very friendly. Fitness center clean. Pool was very nice. I’d stay there again for sure!

Great value with unbeatable location!

My daughter and I came to stay at the hotel this past Sunday night. We had a lovely stay in the newer North Wing. The room was very spacious with new furnishings. Perfect for relaxing after a full day at the MOXI museum, bike riding along the beach and swimming in the pool. Great service from everyone. We'll be back!
