I will start off with the positives...Great location, walk to the beach or restaurants..5 min from state street. Rooms are spacious and parking is free and easy. Evening snacks and wine are complimentary along with daily breakfast and wifi. The downside for us was particularly around the room location. We were in Unit 2 which was a couple of doors...

Accommodation in Santa Barbara is generally quite expensive but at least at the Brisas Del Mar they try to give as much back to their customers as they can which is something we really noticed and appreciated. From the extremely friendly welcome on arrival, the complimentary evening wine and cheese (followed by delicious cookies and milk later in the evening)...

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...

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!
