Recent guest reviews

Staff was very friendly and the happy hour was a nice touch. Would stay here again and would recommend.

Nice hotel, friendly staff. Cold breakfast buffet, wine and cheese and cookies daily. Nice pool area.

Enjoyed the location and amenities such as free breakfast, wine in late afternoon, and cookies and milk in the evening. All included in price. I recommend this hotel!

Great stay. The Inn was quaint and nice. Champagne in our room. Room was big compared to a hotel we have recently stayed at on state street. Walk-able location.

Very friendly and helpful staff!! The ladies at the front desk were wonderful to talk to and patient in helping us find things to do while in the Santa Barbara area! The free bikes ended up being a huge perk! That was the best part about our trip!

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. Our room was upgraded. The complimentary champagne chocolates and hand written note were a nice touch! Best location daily breakfast, wine and cheese were a plus. Also free bikes to use which we took advantage of. Rooms were clean, spacious and very nice. Thank you to Brisas Del Mar staff you are doing everything right and we definitely will be back!

Close to the beach and state street. Staff nice. If you want an extended stay our room had its own kitchen others had sitting rooms. Good place for a family beach holiday

There is champagne in your room and they have a wine and cheese gathering every evening and cookies and milk at night. Very nice staff and u can borrow bikes to ride to town. Bed was super comfy but the shower could have had more pressure. Overall great!!

Very friendly staff, bike rentals available. Small but very nice pool and Jacuzzi. my only complaint was that the Jacuzzi was low on water and not available for use.

The hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely nice. The location was great for me. I could walk down to the water or get downtown fast. The breakfast was great and I enjoyed the wine and cheese every night. Overall I thought it was a great value and I would stay here again.

Great place. They upgraded us to a penthouse suite. Staff was great.

Las brisas was in a perfect location to explore Santa barbara. The staff was friendly & very accommodating. I was on crutches due to an accident earlier in our trip. The hotel upgraded our room free of charge so that I would have more space to navigate. I would definitely stay here again.

This was the perfect hotel. Only 2 blocks from the beach, free bikes to ride, great afternoon wine, cheese and crackers, morning breakfast, big clean room, easy walk to state street and short walk to the train, and the friendlies staff. Would go back tomorrow.

Brisas del Mar exceeded our expectations. The facility had a charm that we haven't seen in years. All the staff showed genuine concern that we were 100 satisfied with our stay and appeared to really enjoy their jobs and took great pride in providing exceptional customer service. The complimentary bike rentals and wine and cheese in the afternoon are things you just don't find at other hotels at any price. We will definitely stay here again!

Pretty and quaint. Decent breakfast. Great wine reception. Great location just not waterfront of course.

Very clean and the staff was very friendly. Very convenient and walking distance to the wharf. State St. downtown area to far for us to walk, but plenty of inexpensive public parking.

This is a very quiet and friendly hotel. Good food from fruit on arrival, cheese and wine in the late afternoon, evening cookies and good continental breakfast. This is our favorite waterfront hotel, only downside is it is one block from the harbor so no ocean views. Although it is on a busy street, the room are set back and so are very quiet. The rooms are also larger than the other older hotels in the ares. What makes this hotel is the friendly staff.

The shower was too small, and I don't like the windows that are facing the hallway. The complimentary wines and cheese aren't that good.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in Santa Barbara and stayed here. The staff were very friendly, the hotel room was clean and spacious, and the location is within a very short distance of the pier and State Street shopping. The hotel had complimentary bike rentals, dvds, continental breakfast/afternoon wine & cheese reception/milk & cookies in the evening, and a bottle of champagne for the room — all of these just added to the experience. We had a great time and couldn't be happier with our stay.

Although this is really a dressed-up motel that charges a premium (for motels) price, the extras are so nice that it becomes a great value. These upgrades/amenities include Spanish-style architecture; a lovely outdoor pool/jacuzzi and another nice seating area near the street; complimentary breakfast, wine and cheese (in the late afternoon) and milk and cookies (in the evening); and complimentary bike rentals (the cost of which would otherwise really add up if you rented from a local bike shop). The location of some rooms are clearly better than others; if you are willing to walk up a couple flights of stairs, you can get a good view of the mountains near the city. The staff at the front desk was excellent. Overall, I highly recommend this property.
