Brisas Del Mar turned out to be a gem for a one night getaway with my husband. I never cared for the hype of staying directly across from the beach since Santa Barbara is pretty easily accessible and those places were asking way too much for just a room. We got a nice room here just two blocks up from the beach, in my opinion nearly half the cost (depending on where you called and what they offered you) and we got all kinds of treats to go with it. A huge attraction for me were the free beach cruisers for their guests to take out 4 hours at a time and to be returned before dark. They have about 20+ available with U-locks, basket on the female bikes, and that helped us get to our activities around the area with fun, ease and a bit of fresh air exercise. There are bicycle lanes on most of the streets and of course along the beach which made it enjoyable. We rode to eat lunch, dinner, visit the Summer Solstice vendors, did the Urban Wine Trail, watched the Saturday parade on State Street all on bike or foot from this hotel. That's just the beginning. They serve a decent breakfast each morning, then offer wine, cheese and crackers in the afternoon, milk and cookies at night, some apples are always available. There is a bottle of champagne waiting in your room complimentary with your stay and a coffee maker with supplies and two bottles of water, mini fridge, wall hairdryer, lockable safe inside the wall. Beds were comfortable and room is stylish with flat screen tv and blu-ray dvd player for the 1,000's of free dvd's you can borrow from the front desk, even new releases. They allow us to rent 2 at a time and we had a nice movie evening after roaming around town. Okay, I agree the bathroom is a bit dated in the original 50's-60's style with updated hardware, so if you are out to impress your special date, maybe this is not what you are looking for. But if you want great service, a clean comfortable place to stay, lots that make your stay even more enjoyable, you will not be disappointed with this place. This place deserves to do well because it shows they really want you to enjoy your time here. William was terrific and helped us with all our needs. Free parking, setting is like a small inn or motel but that is mostly what you get around the beach area in Santa Barbara. Pool and spa were nice as well.
