My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Casa del Mar. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed and the bed was very comfy. We also appreciated the free wi-fi, wine and cheese in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning. The service and advice was excellent and the position between the main shopping area and the beach... More

Rooms are small but cosy, clean and quaint. Spanish villa / cottage kind of feel. Friendly staff. Nice courtyard area with sofas and lounge chairs. Free cheese and wine 5-7 pm. Nice breakfast but limited choice.

I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Del Mar. The hotel is located few houses from the beach and few houses from the local bar. about 15 minutes walk from the train station and 20 minutes walk if you are visiting anyone in Santa Barbara college (up the hill). My room was beautiful and big and had anything I needed.... More

Our stay at this lovely cottage hotel was delightful. Many years ago, it used to be apartments, so as a result, many of the units have a little kitchenette, like ours did. We stayed in the King Courtyard room, which was roomy, it also had a fireplace, sink and vanity separate from the toilet and bath/shower, and plenty of charm.... More

My husband had booked this hotel over two months ago to celebrate our anniversary in SB, needless to say, it was nothing like we expected, given the price or website images. The pro's; location is near the west end of the boardwalk, so it's great for walking, inn was clean and had basic amenities, good water pressure in shower but... More

We stayed in the king balcony room (room 24) for one night recently. The room itself was very simple with few decorations. However, as others have noted, I found the king bed very comfortable. There were plenty of pillows as well. The room came with all basic amenities (though no hair condition). A few caveats: expecting a regular balcony, we... More

I stayed in Room 27 for one night in February. It's a Queen room with an entrance right off of Mason. The room itself felt like a studio cottage minus a kitchen. Very cozy, modern, clean and quiet. AND NO CARPET! YAY! The sink was located in the bedroom. The bathroom had a window, towel rack, toilet and shower. The... More

Had a great stay, staff very friendly and welcoming. Wine and cheese in afternoon, milk and cookies later! Nice breakfast. Also a free bottle of champagne! Best were free bike use to ride down to beach. Only negative is that the hotel is quite a distance from beach area and shops; long walk but a nice bike ride

Casa Del Mar Inn is certainly ideally located, however, it does not offer the amenities I expected given the price we were paying. For example, there are only a few dedicated parking spots. Otherwise, you are on your own to locate street parking and must get a parking pass from them early Saturday morning if you don't want to get... More

The privacy here is amazing! So quaint, cozy and quiet, perfect for the Business Traveler. The layout of the rooms facilitate a great work environment. Beds are comfy, everything is pristine. Liked it so much I booked another week! Really glad my co-worker referred me to this hidden Gem!
