Santa Barbara

Harbor View Inn

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Super central waterfront location and a breezy, coastal vibe
  • A short walk to dining, shopping, bars and 20+ tasting rooms on Santa Barbara’s Urban Wine Trail
  • Every room comes with a patio or balcony


As the name suggests, the popular Harbor View Inn is perched right on the waterfront where State Street -- downtown’s main drag -- turns into Stearns Wharf.

Though not directly on the sand, the hotel is a few hundred feet across Cabrillo Boulevard from West Beach, a popular stretch among locals for picnics and pick-up volleyball. Location is certainly the main draw for guests, as many of downtown’s shops and restaurants are easily accessible on foot. The wine-centric Funk Zone and more than 20 tasting rooms along the city’s Urban Wine Trail are within a 20-minute radius on foot. The Santa Barbara Amtark station is also a six-minute walk away.

The stucco Mediterranean-style property is more relaxed than larger nearby luxe resorts, with comfortable coastal-inspired rooms that all come with a patio or balcony. It's "a taste of the best of old California, " says Forbes Travel Guide, with conveniences like an outdoor pool area with a spacious sundeck, bar and whirlpool, a full-service spa, coffee shop and restaurant on-site.
