The pictures on hotel tonight are somewhat misleading .. In fact v misleading. Plastic fake wood flooring ?? are you kidding me? I'm all for nice hardwood floorings at home but only see fake wood flooring in real budget motels. Clearly a very old motel/hotel (in great location) but a very inexpensive makeover. Shame that hotel tonight have included in... More

We spent a night at the Casa Del Mar on our way up the California coast. What a lovely venue. What a charming, quaint, friendly place to stay. On the practical side, quiet, clean and comfortable with convenient parking. The grounds of the property provide plenty of plant and flower eye candy to enjoy. We really enjoyed being able to...

We weren't hard to please so take this review for what it's worth. Wanted a safe, clean, quiet, pet friendly room close enough to do stuff without having to hear it at night. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Just an overnight stay but the experience was everything we wanted. We stayed in the room furthest from the front desk, outside... More

If you don't mind a little dated, very clean, charming with friendly staff. Great location, walking distance to wharf, great seafood restaurants on the marina side. 10 minute walk to heart of Santa Barbara, State street shopping has everything. Don't miss out on the 5 to 7 free wine and cheese offered in their lounge. We will book again and... More

We stopped here overnight on the way north from SD to SF and wished that we had a chance to stay longer. Santa Barbara is really beautiful and we will definitely be coming back ... and when we do, we'll stay at the Casa del Mar. The hotel is clean and tidy and warm and very well set up. We... More

I've stayed in several similarly priced inns in this neighborhood. This is the first one that smells and feels like a budget motel. Tiny room with no character—barely enough room to walk around the queen bed. On the plus side, it's quiet and the location is good—a block from the beach, half a mile to the heart of State Street.

I stayed here last November of 2014 for the last day of my honeymoon. This place is very reasonably priced and in a very convenient location that is next too many restaurants as well as the pier. There is complimentary breakfast in the morning. It was a very nice room and clean for the most part. It is a very... More

We booked a 2 room suite deluxe which was very spacious and we had a kitchen (which we didn't use as we were only here for 2 nights but it was large and well equipped). The room was very clean, and had a lovely Spanish feel. We utilised the fireplace each night as it was quite cool. The wine &... More

Loved this quaint little beachy spanishy vibe hotel. Great location is the main thing. The room itself is OK, not great though. Free wine hour at 5pm always helps though. To sit out in the little patio area, with a glass of red after a day of beach is genuinely one of those moments that, when you're stressed in work... More

My favorite part of our extremely private bungalow at Casa Del Mar Inn is the windows that open throughout! Fabulous! The grounds are gorgeous, we are walking distance to EVERYTHING and the staff and housekeeping are friendly and helpful! A perfect room for our four day stay! A little train noise at night (obviously no fault of the hotel) but... More
