Inn by the Harbor - Front

Hand-Picked Hotel

A little oasis well placed for walking to the beach and harbour

Set in lush gardens and reflecting Santa Barbara’s Spanish history, the Inn by the Harbor beautifully combines Mediterranean charm and modern accommodation. This adorable little property is built in the Spanish colonial style with white adobe, red tile roofs, inlaid tile staircases, and wrought iron embellishments.

Start your day with a delicious Continental-style breakfast at the hotel and then head to the waterfront and explore the nearby harbour, or to Santa Monica’s trendy ‘Funk Zone’ where you can find wineries, restaurants, art galleries, and shops.

This boutique retreat is located just a few blocks from the beach, providing the perfect setting for a tranquil escape here on the American Riviera. You’re also just 15 minutes’ walk from bustling State Street, with its restaurants, bars and independent cinemas. After making the most of the local area, you’re invited to lounge by the hotel’s swimming pool, or unwind in the hot tub before the afternoon wine reception which is a great way to meet the fellow guests of the hotel.
