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.

My wife and I stayed for at Brisas de Mar, Inn at the Beach for nine days in early January. We had a wonderful visit there. The staff were all great. It felt a bit like a family "home" rather than a hotel. Our room was great and was nicely laid out. The service was excellent, as well. The perks were equally impressive...the breakfast, wine & cheese, and cookie times were all delightful. We also enjoyed the access to the bikes for getting around town. The Inn was also very close to the downtown areas and the beaches. We walked almost everywhere we were going in the city. Finally, when we rented a car for the last part of our stay, we were grateful for access to free parking. All in all, we would highly recommend Brisas del Mar. If we ever go back to Santa Barbara, we would, without doubt, return to Brisas del Mar, Inn at the Beach.

What blew me away here were all the little touches: Daily continental breakfast, cocktail hour (even kid/non-alcoholic friendly alternative of hot apple cider), cookies and milk hour: all of which you can enjoy outside in their patio area or inside with the cozy setup next to the fireplace. A chilled bottle of champagne with the whole setup awaited us in our room and because I'm an Orbitz VIP, I also received two free tastings at Santa Barbara winery, which we put to good use! We booked got a standard room (they also have rooms with kitchenettes in them). The room itself was ok. I think they we recently remodeled too. The bed and pillows, however, were so soft and fluffy, I got one of the best nights of sleep for as long as I can remember. It was hard to leave! They offer free bikes to explore the area too! A pool, spa and gym is also on site. The staff is so friendly. Every time we walked in, we were greeted with a genuine smile. Gorgeous grounds. It really has that "Santa Barbara" feel. Great proximity to the beach, the pier and Old Town. A lot within walking (or biking) distance. I would re-book when I come back for future visits. (Oddly enough, we were meeting up with my friends later on in this roadtrip and three of four of us had randomly stayed at Brisas and had great things to report!) Keep it up, Brisas!

The property was beautiful & quaint, convenient to the beach & wharf. Beautiful area.
