My family of 3 (2 parents, one teen) stayed in a 1 bedroom suite here in mid-August. The suite was very large, big open space LR/eating area/Kitchen fully equipped, very nice. My son slept in the fold out queen sofa bed and said it was comfortable. The king bed in the separate bedroom was also comfortable. Bathroom large as well (and yes, the large closet is at one end of the bathroom, as others have noted). Checkin w/Covid prototcols was easy. 2 amentities I have to mention as big positives are the free bikes which we took on a several mile bike path along the beach and into estuary area. My husband and son rode all the way to Goleta. I was concerned they would run out of bikes but they have plenty.Bring your own bike helmets. 2nd amenity is the free electric car charging which we used. There is only one space for that so if it's taken, you might not get to use it. Breakfast was provided in bag in the fridge, a little disappointing since just cereal/yogurt/juice. We did not use the pool or hot tub but pool is very small. Great location, just one long block down from beach. I recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

I recently spent the weekend at the Brisas Del Mar and it was lovely. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They have free bike rentals and when our tv was having connection issues, Mickey at the front desk, was kind enough to show us their DVD collection. I would definitely visit again. Thanks!

I stayed here with my husband for 5 nights at the end of Feb 2020. We stayed in a standard king room. This hotel definitely has more of a motel feel, but I also think it depends on the room you reserve. We chose to stay here because of the price so I kinda knew what I was paying for, but I read on other reviews that some of the other rooms are much larger. One thing I didn't like about my room was how dark it was. We had a few windows facing an apartment complex, but they were covered in thick glass so you felt pretty enclosed. Our other view was of the parking lot. I felt like the room was clean, but there was something odd with the AC/heat. We would freeze at night and had to turn the heat to 80 to feel some warm air coming through. Also, it's pretty noisy. I didn't sleep as well as I thought (bed was pretty comfy), and ended up getting sick the last day, which was probably due to freezing overnight with lack of sleep. I really enjoyed the daily wine and cheese selection, coffee , and DVD rental. We also utilized the pool one afternoon, which was nice. We like to walk so the distance to the beach and State Street didn't bother us. I would recommend to stay here 1-2 nights.

Found this little hotel on a last minute getaway to Santa Barbara. Booked 1 night then extended another night after checking in. Mickey at the front desk is a great asset to the team. Rooms are clean, a tad expensive for off season but its Santa Barbara, everything is expensive. Wife and I loved the complimentary wine hour and our 2 year old loved the complimentary cookies!

Expensive for what it is but that presumaeably is Santa Barbara and we hit it at a weekend/valentines and Presidents day so bad luck for us. Stayed for 3 nights. Good looking property. It is essentially a motel but trying to do all manor of things to set itself apart and it succeeds very well. Welcome at reception was lovely and all the extra touches (mentioned by others) are there. I personally wouldnt go so far as to call the breakfast deluxe continental and I'm not sure what that would consist of but the quality of the food was very good, not sure about boiled eggs in plastic pouches though. Didnt like the plastic cutlery - very common we found in other places too, and paper cups for coffee and plastic for juice, paper in the rooms too. Free dvd rental a great idea and there are loads to chose from. Walking into town is easy or down to the beach. There is a 7 11 store very near for any bits you need and Brewstore was good for a meal and beer selection. Parking was free - a bonus - a bit tight but easy otherwise. Laundry on site $2 per wash and for drying each takes about 30 minutes. We didnt use the pool but looked clean and felt warm. Could hear the Amtrak but not after 22.00 or so and not as much road noise as expected considering location to road. Stair ways are carpeted which seemed a bit odd as outside and a bit worn. Room good enough and bed comfortable. Good TV. Liked the tile work oround the building
