Positives: Location Location Location. Walking distance to town, the wine trail and the beach. Nice outdoor space, low key breakfast and the people were very friendly. You get a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine with your room too! Negatives: The rooms are very old and really overpriced. The shower and bathroom were so old and dingy that I didn't shower...

We recently decided to spend our spring break in Santa Barbara and, after lots of investigation, settled on the Brisas del Mar, Inn at the Beach because of the good reviews which we had read. And we weren't disappointed. Even though we had had good experiences in hotels on other vacations, this was the first time that we have stayed...

This hotel is very old & expensive. We did have a quiet large room but it was very old & badly needed updating. The bed was comfortably & it's a nice location. A couple of blocks from the beach which was nice.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Santa Barbara. Rooms look like they have been recently redone. Very nice. While within walking distance of the harbor and Stearns wharf it was quiet and we weren't bothered by traffic noise. Staff was very courteous and we enjoyed not only the continental breakfast, but the wine & cheese in the afternoon...

We stayed one night at the Brisas Del Mar on our way down the California coast. We had a great experience and would stay again for sure! The hotel was quiet and had comfortable beds! The complimentary breakfast was a nice bonus!

Very decent hotel with spacious rooms. I rented a room with two queens. The room was clean and cozy. Free parking in a covered parking space. Complimentary water and champagne in the room and complimentary wine and cheese in the front office during happy hour time. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and courteous.

Generally, this hotel receives very good reviews, but I beg to differ. I found our room worn, and showing its age. We had a single king bed. When we asked for a fold out bed for our adult daughter, we were given a worn out futon with a single sheet and blanket. Ugh! We were on the 3rd floor which...
