I have to say I was a bit disappointed in this place. The photos on the website make it look quite lovely, and it's not inexpensive. While it is perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable, it really is no more than a nice motor court. Outside balconies overlook the parking lot; there is no real view anywhere. I will have to...

Comfortable home away from home, nice Spanish style property, excellent and friendly staff, loved the wine and cheese hour in the evening. I highly recommend it. Nice and relaxing. Just a few blocks away from the beach, freeway is nearby.

This is a "motel" -- not an Inn. And not At The Beach -- at least not in my definition. Small parking lot, exterior access rooms, and nothing that resembles the pictures on their website. The guy who checked us in was nice and the cookie I grabbed when returning after dinner was good. Also nice to have a light...

My friend and I booked this hotel the night of after deciding to stop there on our road trip. They were so accommodating and the free breakfast was a huge plus. I loved the feel of the Spanish-style inn and it was so close to the pier! The staff was super nice. I would definitely recommend staying here.

A short stay over in SB, but Brisas was perfect. Priced fairly, clean rooms, great staff. Breakfast in the morning was complete and fresh. Facilities are kept clean, and usage of beach bikes are available and so much fun. Great job to everyone there!

We stayed here as a family of 4 and right from the off , the hotel staff were so welcoming. We parked for free and enjoyed the pool, free wine and cheese, breakfast. It was easy to wonder the short distance into SB and the staff gave us excellent tips on where to head to. Free bikes too.

Name of this hotel is very misleading. It is NOT at the beach. It's two long blocks away. We would never have paid these rates for only an average motel. The staff were pleasant. Breakfast was average and I wouldn't go back or recommend this place.

In the motel category, this place would be ok, but we paid a rate that a real luxury hotel would not refuse. That made us feel like this was robbery. Add to that the gasoline smell all over the place (the gas station is right next to the motel) and you have an horrible experience.
