We spent one night at the Casa Del Mar in April. We'd seen it while walking by to another hotel on a previous stay and the outside was pretty. When our other hotel was full, we selected this one. Because we know what the other places in the area offer, we found this decidedly average. The outside is so pretty,... More

This was just a one night stay but a most pleasant stay. We wished we hadn't stopped in SanLuis Obispo the night before and had stayed here for two nights instead. Our room was #22 and was spacious very clean, very modern with lots of nice touches. The bed was the best we have slept in since arriving in California... More

My fiancé and I spent three nights at Casa del Mar in April. The location is amazing and within walking (or short driving) distance of everything we wanted to do and see, and it was (mostly) clean. The wine and cheese offering in the evening was a definite highlight of our trip, and though the breakfast selection was cereal, pastries... More

My husband and I visited Casa Del Mar on a last minute trip to SB. Check-in was very fast and the beds here are so soft and comfy, I felt the need to upgrade my own once we returned home! The bathrooms are spacious and the shared balcony with partial ocean views was nice. We check out the "social hour"... More

This is a nice quaint little inn with a great location. 1/2 block to beach and walking distance to main pier and harbor with numerous restaurants - also very quiet. The balcony king room we stayed in for one night was spacious, nicely furnished and very clean. Wine and cheese reception in the late afternoon was a nice touch. Front... More

We booked (and paid more) a balcony king room, to be exact it was #24, as seen on the attached pic. What a disappointment when we found out that there is no balcony but small area to access to two rooms. There was a table with two chairs in front of the adjacent room which were used by the guests... More

We only stayed in Santa Barbara for one night, so can't quite comment on its location with respect to the centre of town - but it is practically on the beach, and quite near the pier and some nice bars and restaurants, so that was great. The room was nice and big, and despite there being a heatwave, it was... More

This is a small quaint hotel located within walking distance of the pier, State street and the marina with it a half a block from the beach. The hotel has the look and feel of a Spanish Villa; very nice. During our stay the Wi-Fi was included along with a continental breakfast and a wine a cheese reception in the... More

Our booked room was much too cramped and stuffy. We were able to upgrade into a larger room that was adequate but oh the smell. They must use heavy disinfectants due to the large number of pets that stay. We had to open all the windows and still could not air the place out. Breakfast was completely unremarkable - pastries...

Small yet charming B&B near the beach. The King room upstairs with balcony was a good size room with an upgraded bath and small re fridge. A small amount of street noise during the day but quiet at night. The wine and cheese at 5 was a nice touch.
