Very nice place to stay in Santa Barbara. Clean room, decent bathroom, convenient parking, and a warm welcome and send off from front desk staff. Iris was very helpful with recommendations for local cafe's. Conveniently located; close to beach & downtown. Next trip we will definitely use the free bikes to cruise the shoreline bike path. The welcome bottle of... More

its not the cheapest or is it the most expensive room in town, but it's a pretty good value that's real close to everything Santa Barbara has to offer. My wine tour customers stay there over and over again. Pete, @ ppwinetours.com

Customer service goes a long way in my book, and there was no place that demonstrated that to me better than Brisas Del Mar. For our entire trip, every staff member here was friendly, smiling, and helpful, and they went way beyond what was required in order to make our trip pleasant. Santa Barbara in and of itself is no...

After spending a week with family in LA I decided to go on an adventure of my own to Santa Barbara. Here, I discovered Anthony with his ready smile, helpful hints and suggestions to add to the huge room, full sized kitchen and spotless bathroom. Breakfast was a fresh delight each morning and the wine and cheese in the early... More

We stayed here and were very impressed. The room was quiet and clean. From the moment we checked in until we left we couldn't have been more impressed with everything. They do a continental breakfast, wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies and milk in the evenings. Free wifi, free bikes for guest to use and free parking. That... More

All rooms had their own front door from an outside walkway. Inside - a huge, comfortable bed, TV, eating space, separate area with tea and coffee making facilities and a huge shower. There was a little note from the management indicating a free bottle of champagne. The reception was next to a delightful lounge. The comprehensive breakfast could be taken... More

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
