Upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a penthouse, it was HUGE! The hotel offers free parking, wifi, breakfast, cheese and wine on an afternoon and cookies and... More

I was staying on business and managed to book for the wrong week. The staff were very accommodating and sorted everything out without complaint. The breakfast was great, and the location makes walking to the beach easy. Highly recommended.

We stayed a BDM for one night the first week of August and were generally pleased with our experience. The property is centrally located between the State Street area and the beach which allowed us to walk everywhere we went.

Great hotel about 10 walk from beach, marina, and lots of restaurants. We only stayed one night but very much enjoyed our stay. Friendly and helpful staff, good facilities, all very clean, and the room was great with a good shower and amazingly comfortable bed. Breakfast included was continental and a bit limited but fine. Would stay again/recommend

We have just come back from a short tour of California and stayed three nights at the Brisas Del Mar. We wish we had been able to stay longer. Although it doesn't have all the facilities of a larger hotel, it more than makes up for it with character and friendliness. It is very well located a couple of blocks... More

We rolled into Santa B at 7pm without reservations for a hotel so that we could be flexible with our road trip, and expected to settle for a motel 6 near the highway but luckily we stopped to ask a couple places if they had rooms and Brisas was available.
