Possibly the most approachable and friendly staff we met throughout our entire US trip and that says a lot given the generally high standards expected in this area from American hotels. Situated in a nice area very short distance from beach although slightly longer to State Street (which to be honest is no great shakes anyway). There is a college baseball park just down the road and loved watching the training and games.
Some of the rooms are a little dark largely because of a large screening wall built I think to obscure what I think are staff quarters attached to the site.
Highly recommend Emilios restaurant and the Brewhouse for food although the latter may be a bit loud for some peoples tastes!

I was traveling with my husband, parents and eight month old son. We booked into a one bedroom suite at Brisas del Mar, and did not want to leave the next morning! The staff were simply wonderful (Pam and Gustavo at the front desk in particular - thanks!) and really went the extra mile to make our stay a great one. Besides the wine & cheese, cookies & milk and free bicycle and DVD usage, we asked for an orange for the baby at the breakfast and were told they weren't really in season, so they weren't serving any...but five minutes later, they came by with one that they had picked off the tree! And the baby loved it :)

Suite was clean, large and nicely decorated. And it was nice and close walk to State Street and the wharf. We loved Santa Barbara and it was in part because of the lovely time at brisas del mar!!

We stayed here for one night and thought it was great! The room was clean and large. They provided coffee and bottled waters. The landscaping was well maintained and the breakfast was good for a continental breakfast. We would definitely stay here again! We actually wanted to extend our stay however they were full. Thus we upgraded to a 3 star place and what a mistake! We had paid much less at the Brisas Del Mar and the accommodations were much better!

This place was great! The reception staff were exceptional! Checked in, munched on cheese with wine, went out down State Street (main street in SB - 10 min walk) came back... had milk with cookies!
We took the bikes out to explore further down the beach and check the wharf out... they even let us do all the above even when we checked out.
Felt so welcomed, loved the town, loved the hotel... good job.

We stayed at the Brisas Del Mar for three nights and it was dificult to find a fault, so I'll just list the good points:
Staff at reception were friendly and efficient.
Room was clean and quiet.
Wine and cheese in the evening was a nice touch.
Free use of well-maintained 'beach cruiser' bicycles.
Nice continental breakfasts in great surroundings (watch for the humming birds).
Good pool and hot tub.
Short stroll to the beach/marina.

Overall, a very pleasant experience.
