Our family of 4 very much enjoyed all of the amenities and the staff at Brisas Del Mar. Peter at the front desk was amazing during check in, my son could smell fresh cookies baking and Peter went back into the kitchen to bring him a warm cookie, he then offered us bikes to tour around Santa Barbara, which was...

We had a King suite which had very generous space, a comfortable bed and two flat screen TV's and DVD player. The kitchen area had a great sized fridge and china,cutlery and sufficient saucepans to cook. There was a microwave as well. We stayed 4 nights but with so many restaurants within 15 minutes walk there was no need to... More

Super friendly and helpful staff in a nice little hotel, close to the beach and restaurants. Love the fact that they have breakfast, happy hour, AND cookies and milk later in the evening. Nice way to end a beautiful day in Santa Barbara. Very comfortable bed provided a great night's sleep so we were rested and ready to explore the... More

Firstly, I cannot say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the Front Desk staff. They go out of their way to please. We arrived late at night, so missed the cookies and happy hour, but did have the breakfast buffet the next morning. It was fresh and plentiful, and basic. The beds were extremely comfortable, the room was clean,... More

What a wonderful find. A lovely hotel with superb staff who provide excellent service and make you feel very welcome. Fantastic rooms for the price and spotless. Peter at front of house is a wonderful representative who could do equally as well in a top London Hotel. He was impeccable. Location was only a short walk from seafront and there... More

We stayed overnight on the start of our trip up Highway 1. This hotel is an easy walk to the beach. Positives were the location, friendly desk staff, free parking. The continental breakfast was quite nice and we were able to have it outside.Afternoon cookies and milk were a very nice touch! Room for improvement: the bathrooms are becoming dated-... More

My husband and I have stayed here for the past five years. It is small and friendly. The breakfast buffet that is included is plentiful and tasty. Then the free happy hour each well attended. You get to know other guests. It is the ambience of the place in those common areas that sells it. And always an attentive staff.... More

We were only there 1 night while passing thru (misread price when booking or would have gone elsewhere)! so it was expensive as didn't get to... More

The website looked great, the pictures and description and the cert. of exc. from TripAdvisor and, at the time 4.5 stars led me to choose this. But when we got here the place was so very different from what we expected. We paid $357 per night, and felt it was really more of a $150 - $200 per night place.... More

After leaving LA, arriving in Santa Barbara was a dream (charming, smaller, gorgeous beach, relaxed). All the other reviewers are right about the staff and service which are brilliant. The hotel isn't on the beach but it's only a short walk away and doesn't matter. Yes, the our room wasn't super modern but was spotlessly clean and spacious and the... More
