Very close to the wharf and to the beach the hotel offers a really good location to stay in Santa Barbara. Our room was pretty good and when arrived we had the chance to enjoy the aperitif with wine and cheese they offer to their guests. Maybe a bit expensive like everything else in SB.

We stayed here for 1 night in August 2013 on a west coast road trip. On arrival we were very pleasantly surprised, super friendly staff and a beautiful boutique hotel. Plus wine and cheese every evening for guests to enjoy! Each room has its own entrance from the street and there is a charming courtyard for guests to sit in and enjoy. The rate was high compared to other areas we had stayed but all accommodation in Santa Barbara is high. Free wifi and buffet breakfast. The room was decorated beautifully and well maintained. Excellent location right next to the beach and a short walk to downtown.

Hotel rooms in Santa Barbara are very expensive, and Casa Del Mara represents a good compromise to the high end properties but still at a somewhat reasonable price. Location was excellent as the beach was just across the street. The pier and State Street were about two blocks away.

The property itself had some nice features including an outdoor public sitting area with a fire pit. There was a wine and cheese reception each evening from 5-7. It felt European as there was a free simple breakfast consisting of coffee, bagels, pastries, juice etc. We opted for something more substantial and Sambos, a local breakfast restaurant, was just a block away.

The room was clean and a bit dated, but nothing objectionable. There was free Wi-Fi which was a bonus. The TV was very small by today's standards, but there was a good selection of stations. The bed was comfortable and our room was located in the back so noise was not an issue.

Parking is an issue. There is free parking but parking spots are analogous to lifeboats on the Titanic: They have more rooms than parking spots. Street parking is available, but a scramble to get a spot.

After we had arrived after just 10 minutes, my wife exclaimed, "I would stay here again". She was impressed with the room, cleanliness, general lay-out, and charm of the property. Although flawed in some areas, nothing changed our minds after a three night stay. We would definitely return to Casa Del Mar.

We stayed at the Casa Del Mar for 2 nights in late July. Travelling with two other females can be challenging at times, but the Casa Del Mar was a very pleasant experience. From the minute you arrive, the hotel speaks quality. The place is clean, staff are dressed well and every question you have is answered. The onsite parking is great, as are the rooms.

For the reasonable price tag attached, proximity to both the town and the beach/ pier, this hotel should be on top of anyone's list.

Personally, the best aspect of our stay was the cheese and wine between 5-7pm daily. While the wine wasn't of the greatest quality, it was an excellent chance to meet other staying at the hotel. We met a number our lovely people that only enhanced our experience.

I would love to thank everyone who made our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet, however they tend to get warm later in the day, make sure you leave your window open.

We had two rooms and can only report a positive experience. The staff and accommodation were divine! Santa Barbara offers an easiness married in the hotel ambience. The rooms were fresh and airy, easily accessible from the roadside. The breakfast was also welcoming and more than adequate to set you up for the day. Would recommend. However, please be very mindful of parking on the roads next to the hotel - the Parking attendants can be over zealous! Ensure that you obey ALL of the rules otherwise you will be fined.
