We stayed as a family of four for one night one way to San Fran on our U.S. Road trip. We had a king room with a separate kitchen and living area. Check in experience was superb. Peter was really friendly and we were mad to feel at home straight away. The local area was explained via a map which... More

This is a great place to stay the rooms are large and clean. The hotel itself was not exactly what we expected from the pictured but it was nice. The staff were all very nice. Used the hot tub one night and it was a delight.

As previous people have commented, the front desk and amenities are very good: free extras! Room was a bit dated which we didn't mind but there was a lingering smell of beer in the room. Also found a cheap earring so could question thoroughness of cleaning? However, really enjoyed stay here. Convenient location. Santa Barbara great.

The staff is very warm, friendly, and welcoming. I loved the #4 room with fireplace and kitchen. It was big, spacious, and so quiet and peaceful. We live in Ventura but love Santa Barbara so we will be coming back to this place again. We loved our stay it was elegant!

We chose Brisas del Mar primarily from reading TripAdvisor Reviews and it did not disappoint! We knew from previous reviews that it looks more like a motel, however, you are most definitely not treated like a motel guest! The attentive service, happy hour, cookies and milk, free bicycles, and nice breakfast were wonderful. It was also wonderful not to be... More

WOW - the minute we arrived I could tell we didn't have long enough here - it was actually only 6 nights ago we stayed - the last night of a 5 weeks Californian holiday from South Australia, William greeted us and was a wealth of knowledge - so incredibly welcoming & friendly - and his gorgeous side-kick, who sadly...

This is the first time to stay in this hotel. They were out of regular rooms , so was given an upgrade to the master suite. We always enjoy when being upgraded whether it is on an airplane or hotel. Can't say how the regular rooms were but the suite was very spacious, more like an apartment than a hotel... More

a stop for a night on a coast drive. Most of the hotels we were staying at were large chain ones. This hotel didn't meet that bill so we were a tad skeptical but this was put to rest as soon as we entered. We were bowled over with exceptional service. There was a complimentary wine and cheese hour followed... More

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...
