The Brisas Del Mar exceeded my expectations in terms of service. The rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable but what really makes them excel is their fabulous service. I was blown away! From the free parking to the fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, then came the champagne and cheese reception if all that wasn't enough. They also offer free... More

Quiet gem two blocks from the beach. We walked to our favorite restaurant Toma’s, had a wonderful dinner which helped create a great weekend. We were upgraded to a suite which was nice, wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. Their beach cruiser bikes (free for the asking) came in handy, along the... More

This isn't some quaint luxury cottage by the ocean or the W hotel, it's comfortable, clean,convenient and easy access to the freeways. I had no... More

The hard surfaces and set up at this place makes it loud like a drum. The woman who checked us in was fabulous and kind. The room was clean but the noise you could hear everyone's coming and goings and with the parking below the rooms there was not a good night's sleep to be had. The prices seemed high... More

The hotel is in a great location. it is within walking distance of all the desirable attractions of SB. I think the best part of the hotel is the list of... More

There is more to this hotel than meets the eye, first off it's a whole lot bigger than you first think as its a 50's condo that's had a make over with more evidence of it's humble past in the bathroom and kitchen. Whilst the room and hotel was older, there were no complaints as everything worked, was clean and... More
