Stopped here for a night this week with my best friend. When we arrived we had been upgraded to a suite!! Nice gesture and the suite was huge. We had no need for the kitchen, but enjoyed sitting in the living room rather than the bedroom like the previous 2 weeks of our trip. The complimentary wine in the fridge... More

We were so impressed with this hotel, we would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to anyone. The staff were so helpful and nice from the moment we arrived. They upgraded us to a suite which was a big room with adjoining living room/ kitchen area. The rooms are a bit dated but that is the only flaw we... More

Very quaint retro, boutique hotel. Many special treats...champagne upon arrival in the room, free bike usage, breakfast, wine and cheese were special treats. The staff were awesome. The room was a little dated, but exceptionally clean.

We were made to feel really welcome at the Brisas. All the staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. The complimentary breakfast was fine but perhaps not the "luxury" breakfast it was described as. The complimentary bottle of champagne in the room and the wine and cheese tasting in... More

We would recommend this Inn to anyone. The rooms are a bit old/tired looking but everything is there. What makes the difference is the service, we found the staff very helpful, the location and we really liked being able to rent 2 bikes and cycle on the bike path closed to the harbour and the beach. The free wine+cheese and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2014. We chose this place because it appeared to be within walking distance to the main parts of town (and it was). The property looked like an old motor inn, but it was actually very charming. We checked in and were taken to a dark room at the back of the hotel,... More

What a lucky find this was. A quite unique courtyard style property with lovely rooms ( just a little dark) and good facilities. The staff and service were exceptional from the time we arrived. Contrary to what an earlier reviewer said about being disappointed with breakfast, we weren't. In the 7 days of staying at various inns this was the... More

The Inn provides a suite of rooms with a full, well stocked kitchen. Everything is old fashioned and tired, but spotlessly clean and in working order. New TVs in both rooms. free wifi and a DVD library which kept the children happy. The pool was the star attraction for my children as it was 8 foot deep at one end.... More

I came here for 3 nights with a friend. We were immediately greeted with freshly baked cookies (delicious - may I add), and were given lots of information about the hotel and also the local area, in terms of restaurants, things to see, etc. The staff were very friendly; the pool was a great sun trap too, with the rays...

My sister and I arrived in Santa Barbara without having booked an accommodation for a weekend. We called Brisas del Mar and they had just had a cancellation. The staff were super friendly and welcoming, the room was beautiful, and a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine waited in our fridge. Every day, they host breakfast at reception with a small...
