Santa Barbara tends to be pricy for the room quality, but we found Brisas Del Mar to be a decent choice for the money. Rooms are nondescript but reasonably comfortable; ours had the advantage of being on a corner so had windows/light on two sides. Service was very accommodating and friendly. We appreciated the many extras, from the sparkling wine in the room to the DVDs available on loan to the nightly cookies (wine and cheese could use an upgrade, but then what do you expect for free). Would have appreciated the loaner bicycles if the weather hadn't been so rainy! Expanded continental breakfast was not exciting but nicely set up, with a pretty good range of choice from yogurt to fruit to boiled eggs to pastries. Pleasant tables outside or you can stay indoors by the fireplace.
Location was better than I expected from some of the other reviews. Very easy access to Hwy. 101 and a short walk to the beach (the "Inn at the Beach" label is a bit of a stretch as it is several blocks away). The immediate neighborhood is not super-deluxe but is well kept. Mostly residential (small houses and apartment buildings), with a number of other small to mid-sized motels and inns.
