Harbor View Inn Hotel Review

: In terms of proximity to Santa Barbara’s most popular tourist destinations, it doesn’t get more central than this. Located on the waterfront where State Street meets Stearns Wharf, the Harbor View Inn is the city’s premier beachfront boutique hotel. All 102 guest rooms and thirteen suites have personal patios or balconies, large flat-screens TVs and comfortable amenities. While the property doesn’t stack up against local oceanfront giants such as The Biltmore and Bacara in terms of luxury, it does provide ample comfort. On-site, Spa Beaumontia offers a range of services, while Eladio’s restaurant serves up California cuisine right next door. The swimming pool is nested within a courtyard protected by lush foliage that separates guests from the traffic along Cabrillo Boulevard. If you can afford it, avoid rooms that look out onto the parking lot. Considering the inn’s postcard-perfect location, the added expense of an ocean view room with a balcony is well justified.
