Friendly, kind and helpful staff at the front desk and housekeeping. The rooms offer comfortable beds, linens, and towels. Just a few blocks to the beach, dining options and shops. The hot tub was perfect and the happy hour wine and snack in the lobby was a nice treat. We can't wait to return.

Delightful!

Friendly staff.

Staff and efficient with our requests. They were very friendly. We enjoyed the free bike rentals.

Large room and kitchen.

Good location and friendly staff. Easy walk to wharf and marina. Charming Santa Barbara style hotel with clean grounds. Complimentary wine tasting with snacks each day and fresh coffee in the lobby every morning. Very nice lounge area with sun or shade options to enjoy the wine. No complimentary breakfast at this time due to Covid, but they provide a bagged continental breakfast for every morning of your stay. Room was very nice (we had a suite) and water pressure in shower was fantastic. Bed a bit on lumpy side, but comfortable. Very small fitness room containing only a stationary bike, elliptical machine and treadmill. I would suggest taking out one of those three bulky machines and replacing with a rack of free weights and workout bench.

We loved this hotel after staying at two others beach hotels in two different cities, one disappointing and one quite small. Staff was friendly and efficient, the junior suite had a kitchen, sitting area, bedroom and bath. There were TVs in each room and bikes available for day use. It is located two blocks from the beach which we preferred.

Had a wonderful stay with pool and Mountain View’s. We were able to sit out and enjoy the view. Staff was friendly and nice. Close to everything we wanted to do along the beach. Our grab-n-go breakfast was a nice surprise. Definitely would come back here again!

The hotel is a cute, beachy property in a good location. You’re within about 20 minutes walking from the beach and pier, the funk zone, and State Street. The property is quaint and the pool was enjoyable. Downfalls of the stay were that it was loud. Housekeeping staff is active vacuuming in the hallways so there was no sleeping in with that noise. Overall it was a good stay. Very friendly staff.

I loved our stay here and can’t wait to go again hopefully next year! So cute and love that we had a kitchen we could use. Great location to walk to many things. Thank you to all the great people who work there especially Jami! I ❤️ Brisas Del Mar Inn by the Sea!!

Expensive and noisy

We got the best room at the inn! So happy and impressed with everything. It is super spacious and clean, bed is comfortable, fireplace, amazing patio(balcony), breakfast was in the fridge waiting for us, they even had premium movie channels. We will definitely stay here again and again. But most of all we loved being in the room because it looks magical.

Very clean and walking distance to all you need. Amenities looked nice but we did not take advantage of them.

We had a great 3 night stay. The hotel grounds, amenities and room were all very clean. The hotel staff were very responsive to our needs. The hotel provides breakfast which is delivered in the room in the afternoon. As well there is a chilled water bottle and Californian champagne in the fridge upon arrival. These are all nice touches. The hotel is located next to a park which is great for families with children and a short stroll to the waterfront. State street is also only minutes walking distance. They corden off the Main Street from cars so restaurants have space for outside dining. We were surprised how well the general public honored social distancing and wearing masks. There are signs all over the city to inform people of wearing masks and social distancing. We had a very nice time and felt really save in and outside the hotel.
