How it Ranks: Harbor View Inn ranks #6 out of 38 Santa Barbara Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Recent guests say the Harbor View Inn's location is its main selling point. Located at the entry to Stearn's Wharf, the property sits across West Cabrillo Avenue from the beach, and just a short walk from downtown Santa Barbara. Some travelers note that room rates here are fairly steep, especially when compared to larger resorts nearby. However, guests are quick to praise the employees — particularly the concierge — for their eagerness to help you enjoy your time in Santa Barbara; staff members are efficient when it comes to arranging dinner plans and suggesting things to do in the area. Meanwhile, every room has a private patio or balcony to allow guests to breathe in the sea air. And outside their quarters, guests can be found lounging poolside, enjoying massages in Spa Beaumontia or enjoying dinner and the view at Eladio's Restaurant & Bar.
