Welcoming hotel close to the beach

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: Breakfast in the lobby (or at tables outside in nice weather), wine/cheese at 4:30, milk/cookies in the evening, attractive grounds, quiet rooms
Location: The Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The walking paths by the waterfront. The shops on State Street. Brophy's restaurant at the Waterfront.
We really enjoyed our stay at Brisas del Mar. The staff was exceptionally welcoming and friendly. We particularly liked the location: close to the beach, waterfront restaurants, and walking paths, and only a 10 minute walk to the downtown shuttle that takes you up State St for 50 cents (25 for seniors). The Museum of Art on State Street was an extra bonus as it had a special touring exhibit of Italian art. The staff really went out of their way to make sure the stay was comfortable and pleasant.

Quaint unique hotel

Posted Feb 14, 2015
The building is rather old but quaint and unique. The room was kept clean and quiet. The staff was nice and the scones and cookies were great at the check-in.

Fantastic

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Fantastic customer service. They have wine and cheese in the front lobby before dinner time and then milk and cookies. Bikes to rent during the daytime. A free bottle of champagne in the room and 2 bottles of water. Plenty of movies to rent if you like to stay in. Tucked back from the noise of the street. Very affordable and close to downtown SB.

Great location, close to the beach

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Location, amenities and the staff.
Cons: Microwave in the room.
Location: Close to the beach, Stearns Wharf and Brophies restaurant.
The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgable and service oriented. Loved the location, daily breakfast and evening happy hour. William, the concierge was very helpful regarding local restaurants, and areas to hike and ride the complementary bikes. This hotel beats the chains hands down.

Great hotel right by beach

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Staff member Frank, the wine and cheese, the ability to rent movies from desk, the coffee in the morning, the location, and being able to rent bikes
Cons: Could hear other guests around the inn.
Location: Able to walk to beach or ride bikes near the pier. Also, Santa Barbara zoo wasn't too far away. That was neat!
Frank at this location was very helpful and accommodating! This guy needs a raise - he took the time to learn our last name and I noticed he even learned the last name of other customers as well. Quite impressive....There was some construction/heavy machinery being operated around the building which wasn't the greatest as far as noise went and some of the walls didn't block out sound too well but not much one can do about that. Overall, would definitely come back to stay at this location.
