Wow! The experience of our stay was by far over and above the personal customer service of any place we stayed at during our road trip from San Fransisco to San Diego, CA. When we arrived, William greated us w/such a pleasant greeting, a great smile and explained the amentities of the hotel. He then explained that there was a bottle of champaign waiting for us in the room complementary of the hotel. He expressed to us that if there was ANYTHING we needed he will be at the desk until 11pm.

When we needed a resturant, called the front desk, he asked what kind of food we were interested in. He then said he will call the restuarant for a reservation. Myself and my mother stayed to rest. I then called William to ask where the ice machine was. He replied he will send a bucket of ice to our room. I also said my foot was swollen and when he arrived with the ice, he aslo had an ice pack for my foot.

The room was very clean, and neat. It was an ocean side view, but we arrived at night and left very early in the morning. The air was very cold, so we just drove down toward the water and saw the ocean, and a cute little town driving out of town.

I recently stayed @ this quaint "boutique-style" hotel to celebrate an Anniversary for the 1st time. I have to admit that we (wife) had a very pleasurable & leisurely experience. I booked the spacious penthouse on the second floor, which housed a master bedroom complete w/ a deluxe king, full bathroom connecting to the bedroom, full kitchen including appliances, utensils, & pans, living room with an automatic fireplace & pull-out sofa bed, & large balcony w/ a view! The icing on the cake was definitely the complimentary champagne waiting for us on the counter-nice surprise! Brisas doesn't cut you short when it comes to value (i.e. free beach cruiser rentals, wine & cheese hr, & cookies & milk hour, dvd's, etc.) The property is well-maintained, quiet, & is steps away from the beautiful harbor & warf. Surprisingly, there was no charge for parking & the room was very close to the car. Service was impeccable, from the telephone inquiry through the checkout - Lily @ the front desk was pleasant, professional, & very helpful throughout the process. Overall we had a wonderful stay & will be back definitely.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony, you have to book the suites or penthouses & includes the mountain side view as opposed to the beach.

My husband and I have stayed in Santa Barbara many times but never near the beach so we decided to try this place. It's not a luxury property but it really does a great job with what it has. Firstly, the service was wonderful, especially Willaim who was a real concierge giving us advice on everything that was spot on. The rooms are a good size, nice beds, linens and bath products, especially the robes. Food was just ok...average pastries on paper plates but the wine at happy hour was really quite good. We did not end up liking the location...over a mile walk to opur favorite part of State St. and it seemed a bit of an iffy neighborhood for walkiing at nite. There is a pool and hot tub and they are very friendly to children so it's great for families. All in all, pretty good for the price.

I stayed here one night only. The front desk staff was efficient, helpful, and courteous, and the breakfast in the lobby was delicious. Many nice touches abound, including, when I visited, a real Christmas tree, gorgeously decorated in the comfortably appointed lobby. The bed was very comfortable. I especially liked the separate dressing area with a large vanity and mirror. My room had plantation shutters and a ceiling fan (I suspect most rooms do), both of which made the room quite homey. Doors open into the parking area, which means that it can get a bit noisy during the day with people coming and going. This is an older property that's been beautifully modernized.

We recently spent a month at Brisas Del Mar, and truly hated to leave. The staff, to a person, was helpful, always accommodating, and friendly. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and well maintained. We had what could be considered a suite, with a small kitchen, living room, and bedroom. We were not expecting the Ritz, but what we had and enjoyed was a lovely continental breakfast each day, wine and cheese in the afternoon, and milk and home-made cookies in the evening. We've stayed at several hotels in Santa Barbara and this surpasses the supposedly more upscale ones. Maritzia and William could not have been more solicitous and the morning staff was just as lovely. We plan to return soon.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the lobby would be our preference.
