Brisas del Mar, Inn at the Beach Hotel Review

: If you’re looking for intimacy but don’t want to pay boutique prices, this Spanish-style property offers a practical solution. Part of the Santa Barbara Hotel Group’s collection of small hotels and inns, the 31-room Brisas del Mar is well situated between downtown and the palm-lined waterfront --- just two blocks from the harbor and less than a mile from Stearns Wharf. While quaint touches such as evening cookies and milk add an element of charm, there is no escaping the property’s roots as a mid-century apartment complex. A remodel mostly concealed the old bones, but the parking lot remains a centerpiece. The guest rooms and suites, however, are clean and comfortable. Complimentary Wi-Fi and continental breakfast are included, and a daily wine and cheese reception is an elegant touch. Families should consider one of the suites, which offer full kitchens and plenty of room.
