Brisas Del Mar, Inn At The Beach
Ranked #21 of 52 Hotels in Santa Barbara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 March 2014

There is more to this hotel than meets the eye, first off it's a whole lot bigger than you first think as its a 50's condo that's had a make over with more evidence of it's humble past in the bathroom and kitchen. Whilst the room and hotel was older, there were no complaints as everything worked, was clean and service/advice received was fine.

When we first entered our room there was a music blaring from next door from what I think is a car wash or something, but that settled right down soon after dark but you may wish to check that out if your room is on the petrol station side

Room Tip: Rooms beach side (i.e opposite from petrol station) is quieter

we really enjoyed our stay here at this hotel. the front desk (William) service and help was excellent. the rooms were nice, clean and bed was very comfortable. the location is great..just a few mins walking distance from the beach. the hotel offers free wine and cheese, then cookies and milk after that on a daily basis. the hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept. it was a great time staying here and we will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Santa Barbara!

William at check in was awesome and pleasant. The room was quiet. We walked everywhere and didn't really need our car--walked even to State Street. Next time we'll have to take advantage of the bikes.

Greetings from Santa Barbara,

Thank you for your wonderful compliments of our fabulous Innkeeper, William. We are incredibly fortunate to have a dedicated team who genuinely care about the quality of service they offer each of our guests. As you mentioned, many of our guests enjoy our convenient location to downtown State Street and the waterfront, however, with so much to see and do in Santa Barbara, our complimentary beach cruisers are a wonderful way to explore the city. We look forward to seeing you again. Warmly, Greg Broussard ~ General Manager, and the entire hotel team.

I stayed here for one night while traveling through southern California. This is a unusual property as it has units that are similar to a small apartment. It was a bit more than I needed, and thus the price was higher than what I would have liked. I was late making a decision where to stay, so other choices were already booked. I did sleep well, as the room can be made very quiet. The breakfast did not seem up to par for what I had hoped at this price. The staff were friendly and was otherwise a good location. Would likely not repeat though, because I do not need such a large suite at a large price, but for those who are in a bigger group, it may be more suitable.

Typical Inn at the beach in case you are looking for fancy hotel this is not it. However Service and front desk employees were welcoming, accommodating my special requests and helpful. There are a lot of perks in this hotel that made it worthwhile: hot tub after a long day, complimentary champagne in room and free bike rental to go around Santa Barbara. I would definitely stay at this Inn again.

Decent place to stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I think I remember they served milk and cookies in the evening!
We just used it as a stopover after driving down the coast on the way to LA. Managed to walk to a local restaurant for dinner. Good option.

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your recent stay with us. Yes, your memory is correct!

As you mentioned, many of our guests enjoy the convenient location to the Santa Barbara waterfront and down town State Street with many restaurants and attractions within walking distance. Should our travel plans bring you back to Santa Barbara, we hope you come visit us again. Warmly, Greg Broussard and the Brisas del Mar team!
