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.

Just spent a lovely weekend at Casa del Mar with a group of girlfriends. The quaint architecture and beautiful landscaping drew us in immediately! The rooms and beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean. We enjoyed the happy hour wine and cheese; the breakfast was basic. Although the neighborhood was quiet at night, the hotel was within walking distance to... More

Wonderful old spanish style Inn. The beach is just a block away.Good Continental Breakfast, wine and cheese in the afternoon and Dog friendly. I'm a Santa Barbara native and this takes me back to my childhood. Nice to see a place that reminds me of the good old days!

Great location and wine & cheese hour are about the only plus about this hotel. I come to Santa Barbara 3-4 times a year and have stayed at many comfy,friendly,good location hotels (Franciscan & Eagle inn). Casa Del Mar ' s room was a typical small chain hotel room dressed up to be something more. Huge closet with unattached metal... More

Very simple little quaint rooms in a great location. It's hard to complain really. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised by the kitchenette in the room, microwave, mini fridge, comfy beds, direct tv, free wine and cheese during afternoon cocktail hour, coffee pastries in the am, half block from the sand, 2 blocks from the pier next to...

Only stayed one night but it was wonderful. Wish I could stay longer as the felling was so chilled and welcoming. Nice clean room that was walking distance to the beach and town. Breakfast was basic but suited me fine. Definitely worth the visit.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night during a short, two day getaway, midweek. We both had read reviews and seen photos and were pleased. I ended up booking a Courtyard King due to the fact that it had the in-room fireplace and the pictures looked nice. There was a 15% discount at the time as well, so... More

What a wonderful little gem! This condo-style hotel has the feeling of a small resort. Each unit is housed separately with a central courtyard. They also serve a light breakfast with great coffee. Room was spacious with a kitchen, full bathroom, and even a fireplace (which has a timer). Would've given 5-stars, but the carpet was extremely flat/rough and looked... More

Excellent multi-night stay at this property while touring the Santa Barbara area. The rooms are exactly what they look like in the pictures. Affordable rates, very clean and tidy rooms and property, friendly staff. Parking is free, but there are limited spaces on site, leaving some car travelers to scout for street parking and accordingly pay attention to daily parking... More
