If you want to celebrate an anniversary or any other special occasion then make a reservation at Brisas Del Mar! Great rooms, terrific, friendly and informative staff and LOTS of perks! Each guest is treated to a free bottle of champagne, chilling in the mini-fridge as well as bottled water. At 430pm free wine and cheese is served in the... More

Everybody at the Brisas del Mar is exceptionally friendly. The moment you walk into the front office, you feel welcome, no matter whether you are a grown-up or a child. Hospitality is what it's all about. A welcome drink, sparkling wine in your room, free bicycles and very friendly and helpful people. The hotel itself isn't the most modern you... More

We hadn't booked anywhere on Saturday of the Memorial Day long weekend (being from out of town we didn't know about it) so were very fortunate to find a vacancy at this lovely establishment. Better still we had a penthouse with our own private balcony looking towards the mountains. The 'suite' consisted if a large bedroom, bathroom with spa bath,... More

The staff were outstanding in providing a welcoming experience, and the inclusive happy hour wine and cheese were most enjoyable. The breakfasts were above average with excellent baked goods, pastries, fruits, cereals, juice and milk; but, did not include hot proteins - hard boiled eggs were extent for protein. The important aspects of the rooms were good such as good... More

Santa Barbara was our first stop to spend the night after driving from San Diego and passing through Santa Monica and Malibu. We couldn't have gotten a better place and service. Staff was amazing, location incredible, and complimentary bikes and wine & cheese happy hour were an unexpected plus. We totally recommend Brisas Del Mar Inn.

Brisas del Mar lives up to its Spanish translation, "sea breezes," and is a beautiful and comfortable inn with a seemingly humble air about it. We stayed in the beginning of May, and its people are its real stars. We had my 92-year-old father with us in an adjoining room, and they couldn't have been more accommodating - putting us... More

There were many reviews discussing the age of the property. Yes, there is some outdated aspects to the Inn, but it doesn't take away from the experience. Comfortable, clean rooms. Air conditioner works great. Free wine, cheese, cookies, milk, breakfast as well as champagne and water bottles in room! Free wifi. Free use of bikes to ride on beach bike... More

Stayed here in April 2015 for one night as part of a road trip. It was a little expensive (around £100 per night was our budget for the holiday), but actually my favourite hotel out of the five we stayed in, in total. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the little touches (bottle of sparkling wine in the... More
