Social distance motel
Jul 29th, 2020
We selected this hotel for the full size kitchen and inviting pool. The hotel staff is very accommodating and helpful. I enjoyed having breakfast bags delivered to the room, milk, juice, granola bar, yoplai yogurt, apple, and cereal. In addition, we had a chilled champagne bottle waiting for us in the refrigerator. The cons: we had noisy neighbors that stayed until 11 pm, drinking and smoking pot in the parking lot below our room. Security was called broke up the party. I understand we are in vacay but guest should be mindful of their neighbors. I would recommend this hotel because having a full kitchen makes vacation much more easier and there’s no need to go out to a crowded restaurant for breakfast or purchase overpriced drinks at bars. Another, plus was the warm pool and most guest kept their social distance. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Not by the harbour, but not too far

Clean and tidy, with plenty of parking. Eating area at front, with free wine and cheese etc. Small pool. Good location to walk around from. No bar. Some of the local area to walk at night, is a bit worrying, couple of shops and ptrol stations nearby. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Inn by the Harbour got 5 stars, which is saying something considering we spent 1 night (instead of 2) during the lockdown. Frank was on reception and he was simply amazing!! He was apologetic that the facilities were closed-including the pool. He was knowledgeable and informative and a really nice guy. We were given a beautifully spacious room overlooking the pool, which included a kitchenette and dining area. The hotel itself was close to amenities and was a beautiful short walk to the pier and promenade. The silence at night was only disrupted by the crickets in the distance. We were feeling low as our holiday (to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary) was being cut short but we definitely ended our trip on a high. Can't thank Inn at the Harbour and especially Frank for the kind and warm welcome. Not only would we highly recommend the hotel but we cant wait to return and have a 'do over'. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Decent base for exploring!

We stayed here for 1 night and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff as well as the contact from the hotel in the lead up to our booking. The rooms are dated and dark, but perfectly functional. The location of the hotel was the best part for us. We were able to walk to the waterfront and enjoy a meal overlooking the marina. Even though the hotel is on a busy corner, we were never bothered by excessive noise except for the reversing trucks in the car park in the morning. The road the hotel is on is full of other hotels all of a similar motel style. Santa Barbara is an expensive place to stay so doesn’t offer the best value for money, but Inn By The Harbor was an adequate place to spend the night. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

This was an overnight pit stop for me and my partner as part of a road trip through california. What an awesome place! We have being staying previously in some chain places and yeah the're good, but this place was something special. Firstly it's appearance, whilst small and quaint, it's in perfect keeping with the environment and neighbourhood around. Perfectly located from the beach with a beautiful garden through the middle. Rooms are perfectly adequate and clean, some may argue they need updating but I would be cautious to ensure if they ever were, they kept the beautiful charm they have today. Frank checked us in and told us all the hot spots and places to go, he even helped with our on ward trip to Monterey and how best to get there and where to stop along the way. Thank you Frank, we would not have seen what we have on this trip if it wasn't for you. Our trip through california has ment we have stopped at so many different places and so many hotels, this was by far most awesome place and one of the best hotels. Thank you Santa Barbra and thank you Frank for your help. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
