After spending a week in San Diego, we planned to head back up Route 66 & stop for a night in Santa Barbara. We arrived, with no plans & no clue of where we were going. We happened upon this little gem of a hotel en route to the beach (only 2 blocks away) myself, my husband & 3 kids... More

Upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a penthouse, it was HUGE! The hotel offers free parking, wifi, breakfast, cheese and wine on an afternoon and cookies and... More

I was staying on business and managed to book for the wrong week. The staff were very accommodating and sorted everything out without complaint. The breakfast was great, and the location makes walking to the beach easy. Highly recommended.

Loved this hotel with its lovely staff - Peter was very helpful and knowledgeable helping us settle in when we checked in. We had a lovely large room towards the back of the hotel site, which was quiet and spacious. There was plenty of storage space, with a large dressing area next to a bright airey bathroom. The bed was... More

Very nice place - very clean and the location is excellent for visiting the beach. Check in was fast and very helpful with tips and advice and a map. The room was large, air con was great and the bed was really comfy. Also the breakfast and cheese/wine are great! The pool is always very busy so if planning to... More

We stayed a BDM for one night the first week of August and were generally pleased with our experience. The property is centrally located between the State Street area and the beach which allowed us to walk everywhere we went. (Bikes are available) We booked a Wine Lover's package which included a tasty Chardonnay with a nice tote bag and... More

We had a great stay at this location. We were in town for a wedding with a 15 month old and a 5 year old. We had a master bedroom with a large walk in closet and a living room/kitchen with pull out couch. After traveling all day with little ones, it was great arriving at this hotel. We had... More

Great hotel about 10 walk from beach, marina, and lots of restaurants. We only stayed one night but very much enjoyed our stay. Friendly and helpful staff, good facilities, all very clean, and the room was great with a good shower and amazingly comfortable bed. Breakfast included was continental and a bit limited but fine. Would stay again/recommend

We have just come back from a short tour of California and stayed three nights at the Brisas Del Mar. We wish we had been able to stay longer. Although it doesn't have all the facilities of a larger hotel, it more than makes up for it with character and friendliness. It is very well located a couple of blocks... More
