We booked through Hotel Tonight, a great app, and were allocated a huge suite which was big enough to hold a party in. Pam checked us in and was a mine of valuable information. We asked for a lunchtime recommendation and she had no hesitation in naming Brophy Bros on the wharf where we did indeed have an excellent lunch.... More

Second time my wife and I have stayed at this hotel in Santa Barbara. It's 2 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to the local breweries and wine bars. Great service and free breakfast. Older style hotel but very clean and well-maintained.

This hotel really tries hard to provide amenities and give good customer service. The suite was spacious and clean, The bed and pillows the most comfortable I have slept on for a long time. The breakfast, snacks and cookies good. The only criticism I have is that the decor is a bit tired and there is no outlook from the... More

I will start off with the positives...Great location, walk to the beach or restaurants..5 min from state street. Rooms are spacious and parking is free and easy. Evening snacks and wine are complimentary along with daily breakfast and wifi. The downside for us was particularly around the room location. We were in Unit 2 which was a couple of doors... More

Accommodation in Santa Barbara is generally quite expensive but at least at the Brisas Del Mar they try to give as much back to their customers as they can which is something we really noticed and appreciated. From the extremely friendly welcome on arrival, the complimentary evening wine and cheese (followed by delicious cookies and milk later in the evening)... More

I have to say I was a bit disappointed in this place. The photos on the website make it look quite lovely, and it's not inexpensive. While it is perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable, it really is no more than a nice motor court. Outside balconies overlook the parking lot; there is no real view anywhere. I will have to...

This is a "motel" -- not an Inn. And not At The Beach -- at least not in my definition. Small parking lot, exterior access rooms, and nothing that resembles the pictures on their website. The guy who checked us in was nice and the cookie I grabbed when returning after dinner was good. Also nice to have a light... More
