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...

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
