Lovely hotel with warm, personable staff who go out of their way to make you stay pleasant. William McNally is especially helpful and sincere. I definitely recommend the Brisas Del Mar in Santa Barbara.

The Brisas Del Mar inn by the beach is a lovely and quaint hotel with personable staff members who go out of their way to truly exceed expectations. One staff member in particular, William McNally, made himself available to us throughout our stay and assisted us with every request, recommending excellent restaurants, upgrading our room, and sending items to the...

Perfect location to walk to the beach, wineries, State street shopping! We never used our rental car except to drive outside of town for a day trip. The staff is great and very helpful. It is a motel type of set up and not a newly decorated one. However we noticed many of the lodging spots in SB are set... More

Brisas Del Mar is a cute boutique hotel situated near downtown Santa Barbara. I was here for a brief business trip, but (through my own fault) neglected to actually book a hotel or anything until the night before the meeting. I found an excellent last minute rate for two nights at Brisas offering free Wifi and parking. When I arrived,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and we were very impressed from the time we checked in until the time we left. The front desk greeter was friendly, acknowledged us as soon as we walked in although he was helping another guest, and was well-versed in the Inn's amenities and surrounding activities. Chilled champagne with real glasses awaited us... More

The inn is back from the beach but an easy walk. The rooms are good with all the required facilities and very clean. The staff are very helpful and this follows on for features like a bottle of wine in the room on arrival. A very good continental buffet breakfast which we ate outside in the garden, the wine and...

While the name says it's on the beach, it is actually 2 blocks away. Easily walkable. The hotel rooms are showing a little age, although the rooms are clean. The grounds are nice. The breakfast was quite good for a continental breakfast, DNS the staff were helpful and friendly. If you're looking for good value, but not something super special... More

The location of this hotel is PERFECT walking distance to beach, harbor, State Street shopping and wineries, but why walk when they let you use their bikes for FREE? Yep, just one of the many perks at this charming hotel. Mornings offer free breakfast, pastries, muffins, cereal, juice, coffee & tea in their lovely lobby. Afternoon Happy Hour offers a... More

I can't say enough great things about this place. Only stayed one night, but they impressed me so much, I will definitely be back. Went to check in, and the front desk staff was having a hard time finding my room reservation, due to the fact that I had gone through another travel agency to book. No fault of their... More
