When we arrived there was no parking outside our apartment and as soon as we opened the door there was a terrible smell. The decor was also extremely dated with rips in the sofa's upholstery. The good points were it's location as it was walking distance to Santa Barbara Pier. Also the complimentary breakfast was a nice addition. At £130... More

There is a lot to like about this Hotel, Location, large rooms (stayed in a Jr. Suite), charming old Santa Barbara style. But, the hotel could use a freshening... linens are coarse, bathrooms old, wall lamps sagging, and the huge and very ugly desk chairs should be tossed (or donated). The free breakfast is minimal (compared to the next door... More

Within a couple of blocks from the beach, Casa del Mar is located. Very cute "Bed and Breakfast" small rooms but comfortable. In the afternoons they offer wine and cheese in their living room; breakfast is basic with good selections of coffee. Around Casa del Mar you find a couple of restaurants or/and walking distance to State Street. Excellent service.... More

Our stay was for two days as we were in town for a wedding. The room was clean and quaint and the staff was pleasant and friendly and the bed was very comfortable. The location is almost perfect and the price is average for the area. It is less than a block from the beach which is nice. They offer... More

Cannot beat the location, in walking distance to Stern's Wharf and State Street. Charming inn with super-pleasant staff...we had a two-bedroom unit which was very comfortable and while a tad dated, still has that charming Santa Barbara feel. And a separate eat-in kitchen. And...our pup loved it too!

You don't need to bring your pet to enjoy this hotel but we did and were very happy with our choice. The location is great- just across the street from the beach, and close to the wharf and loads of great restaurants. It is not fancy, but the rooms (King, second floor) are large and clean and the staff is... More

My husband and I spent one night at Casa Del Mar. We came to town for a camping trip and got there a day early to explore Santa Barbara before heading into the mountains. We wanted a place where we could walk to things. When we arrived we were first shown to a room right off the lobby. It was... More

We stayed two nights and liked it. Our room on the ground floor was quite dark and that was not so nice. However, we needed a double queen bed room and they were all located on the ground floor. Great touch with the free wine & cheese in the late afternoon. The complimentary breakfast was also fine and there was... More
