Wonderful all around. Just slightly out of my usual price range ($140/night), but I'd come back for another special occasion. Staff was incredibly friendly, welcoming and seemed queer-friendly – which is especially important, because it's nice to not have weird, hostile looks for checking in with my partner. Rooms were cozy and comfortable; a tad […] smaller than I'd imagined, but I'd take cute & small over large & tacky. Light breakfast (bagels, muffins & juice) and evening snacks (wine, cheese & grapes) were fancy, and provided a little space to stretch out and meet other visitors. Great location to meander the beaches and downtown, and along the downtown bus route if you're not able-bodied or just lazy. One tip: This didn't bother me at all, but if you're a light sleeper and want to sleep in, you may want to ask to avoid the rooms just outside the lobby. The first row of rooms are right in front of the lobby door that earlybird breakfasters enter. They weren't at all loud. This also applies vice versa: if you're a loud morning person, and don't want to disturb the earlybirds, HAHA. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We just stayed overnight. It is a very charming place, free parking, internet and breakfast. We had people above us though who woke very early and were loud but luckily we're early risers too. Other than that a very nice place to stay,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for a getaway."
Like coming home. Super comfortable, quiet and beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a very pleasant little hotel - good location and very helpful and friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and nice location. Would stay again"
If you're real picky, don't stay here. Its an older hotel. It may have been old apartments, which is not necessarily bad. The rooms were very clean. The grounds are loaded with plants and flowers. The TV didn't work in the room. The front office person tried to fix it, then the maintence guy tried to fix it, so we moved into a different room. Both rooms […] were clean and if you like old architecture, you will like the place. The second room had plenty of room. There was a private bedroom plus the front room with a bed and a full kitchen. plus what looks like a laundry room. Also a large walkin closet. This would be a great room if you have children. Prices are high but thats what you pay in Santa Barbara if you want to walk to tbe beach or the pier. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and worth it."
Half a block to the beach. Nice cottage feel, individual mini houses. Nice and very helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"awesome spot close to the beach"
staying at the Casa Del Mar Inn was awesome. the room was super clean and spacious with great light as well as privacy. definitely recommend this hotel for the location and high quality / experience of my stay. wish I didn't have to leave!Genuine Expedia guest review
Not good!!! price to high. stayed in carmel nicer room and 10x better breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Casa Del Mar is in a great location to the beach, wharf, and State St. shops and restaurants. The room was a bit old- ancient kitchenette that I don't think even worked. But the room was clean and the updated decor gave it charm. The flowers around the hotel are beautiful. The breakfast was very limited- nothing special at all, so I'm not sure why […] they call themselves a B&B. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if the price was right.

"Birds, flowers and a fountain!"
The bed was deliciously comfortable. The surrounding area had singing birds and fragrant flowers. Also a fountain! I was able to walk to restaurants for dinner and to the beach for sunset. A cozy environment, with smiling staffers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Right by the pier and walking distance/short ride to state street. The windows in my room were a little weird. You could hear everything going on outside on the street. But the room was nice. Hot water worked well. Wine and cheese served in the lobby from 5-7pm was a nice touch. Breakfast was a little too basic, but other than that it was a nice small […] boutique hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
our experience has been excellent all around, from the wine and cheese served at our arrival, to the friendliness of the young lady at the reception (sorry did not get her name!), to the location. It has been great, so much so that we are going back this week again.Genuine Expedia guest review
this is my second send : Staff was very nice. There are no bay or ocean views so you need to change this . Bed and pillow were not comfortable. breakfast and wine and cheese hour very nice. It is a B& B . Dont expect hotel type service. However again the staff was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed was not comfortable. Pillows fair. Staff however was very nice and helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Casa Del Mar.. I was expecting a more cosy space for main eating area.. breakfast was just beverage, fruit, and carbs... I was expecting more of a full service breakfast..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Superb location across the street from teh beach."
Great location. Easy to park. Check in was simple and efficient. Rooms are spacious with chairs, plenty of room to put out two suitcases. I was not a fan of the softness of the bed, but that is a personal preference. Wireless access is spotty in the room, but works well in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good experience, a few minor issues"
Liked the location - like 2 blocks away from the beach. I liked the entrances were on the street, so it felt more like you're own little place. The decor was great in the room, great lighting. Wonkey windows in the bathroom that were a pain to get open and shut. The floor was tile instead of carpeting, which was a little weird. Their suggestion for […] dinner (the FishHouse) was AWESOME. They also had complementary wine and cheese, and a continental breakfast ~ all bread bread bread bread items. Since I don't do bread that was disappointing, and I had some problems with their wifi in the morning but it was a good experience Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Valentine's Day Get-Away"
Both the hotel and the staff were extremely welcoming. The grounds were impeccably groomed and the staff were very helpful. The only negative comment would be that the room was sparsely furnished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Casa Del Mar"
A charming hotel in a wonderful neighborhood. The bed was comfortable, the courtyard was lush and peaceful, and the staff was extremely helpful and nice. You can't go wrong staying here. That being said, three things to note: 1) no carpet in the room (I assume because it's a beach hotel, and that makes clean-up so much easier) 2) my room (queen) did […] not have a closet or drawers, which made it kind of difficult to keep clothes wrinkle-free and 3) "breakfast" would be a generous description of what they provide. There were croissants, bagels, fruit (very brown bananas one morning), juice, and coffee, but I was surprised at just how sparse the "breakfast" was. The hotel is surrounded by much better breakfast restaurants, so you certainly won't go hungry. The term "B&B" was very misleading in this case--more accurately, it's "Bed and Better go somewhere else for Breakfast." Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute Cottage-Style Room and lots of hot tea!"
Super happy that I randomly chose this hotel. My room was right behind reception. I was encouraged to park around back in the carport - thank you! The young man behind the desk was terrific. I must have drank 4 or 5 cups of tea? He was happy to duck into the kitchen and fill my cup of tea with hot water again and again and again. Loved the service, […] loved the room.

"Great place to stay by the beach"
Took our dogs with us and had a great time, hotel was in a great location by the beach. Perfect for strolling out with our pups. Room was clean, just wish we didn't stay next to the room that served breakfast at 6:30am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was a very pleasant surprise with a very welcoming and homely atmosphere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice for it's age"
Nice location, it’s just a short walk to food or the wharf. The complimentary wine and cheese happy hour in the lobby was fantastic! The breakfast in the morning was standard but passable. The shower in our room was a little under par with the door handle missing and not quite as clean as I would keep it. But the linens and the rest of the room were […] very nice. Thin walls, so you do get a little traffic noise, but I honestly didn’t notice it while I was sleeping. I would consider staying here again if I were in Santa Barbara again.

It was a quaint place. Cute little rooms. Breakfast wasn't anything too special for being called a "B&B".Genuine Expedia guest review

It was a great little B&B with a nice continental breakfast. We had a grea time staying here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Casa del Mar Santa Barbara"
Absolutely excellent in every way. Super location. Friendly service. Lovely complimentary wine and cheese in the evening. Very pleasant continental breakfast (good coffee!!) in the morning. Very safe location and get close to lots of action .............. the pier, restaurants, shopping etc. Wish I could have stayed longer!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Casa Del Mar Inn in Santa Barbara, CA"
This B&B has stayed consistently quaint and pleasurable for all of the years that we have been going there. That would be 15+ years. Amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is good and the staff is friendly but I was a little put off by the linoleum flooring. Also, the bed wasn't very comfortable and the pillows were flat and very hard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Casa Del Mar is a fun get away"
This is the second time I have stayed at the Casa Del Mar. I hope to come back many more times. I love how friendly the staff is and how comfy the rooms are, my husband wasn’t as impressed, I just love the relaxed feeling and how close it is to the beach. I can’t wait for my next trip to Santa Barbara.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slightly over priced weekend getaway"
They did a good job of trying to bring up an old hotel but they stopped short in a few areas, and for the price you could consider it kind of an adventure. I think they probably should have carpeted the rooms instead of leaving the old linoleum tiles. The heater didn’t work (because the gas was turned off) the fan didn’t work, and the entry light bulb […] was out (I thought this was a safety issue so I reported it and they brought me a bulb and I installed it, like I said…adventure) Also, both my wife and I noticed that the hotel staff seemed to be just about at their breaking point. Nobody but the front desk clerk smiled and that was only because we were standing in front of her. Parking was tricky and one guest that I saw got a parking ticket...If you want a nice quiet breakfast, avoid the complimentary breakfast from this B&B. The cleaning staff have absolutely no guest etiquette and were borderline rude. Overall, it's a great location, and if you squint your eye's enough the place could be considered nice. Just avoid any contact with staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room smelled like wet dog. To call yourself a "bed and breakfast" is misleading and incorrect. The "breakfast" was warm bagels and pastries, in past experiences I have had an establishment which is a B&B actually serve a hot breakfast to its guests. Very disappointed with our stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel close to beach,and not to far from State St"
Our room was right on the ground floor on the main street. Through out the night constant noise from people locking cars outside (i.e. 2 beeps on USA cars) could hear people talking as they walked past, very little privacy as so close to the footpath people could look in. Also a little disappointing that there was no tea or coffee making facility in […] the room which is now common practice in most hotels even the very basic ones which we has stayed in during our trip. Tea and coffee was available from the breakfast area during the day. If we had stayed for more than one night I would have requested a room change. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, little noisy"
Cute little hotel in a great location very close to the beach. The rooms are a bit older, and the bathroom layout was a bit odd (shower and toilet in separate room, sink in with bedroom). Windows didn't block much sound from the street, but luckily we had to get up early anyways.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Good location."
No real complaints. Parking was a little scarce. Had to park on the street the first night. Aside from that no issues. Would stay there again. Nice location steps to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice lil cozy place to stay"
Great neighborhood, clean, very close to the beach and walking distance to city center. Only downside of the hotel: no a/c in our room. Inexistent. We didn't need it since it was in Fall...you've been warned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an excellent stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was very close to sea front and several restaurants. Free wine and cheese was served nightly which was a nice touch. Would recommend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to sea"
Nice place. close to all. Room access from outside only. Very calm street during the night. No air conditionning but it was not a problem in march. No onsite personnel during the night so outside access could be a security problem. The urgency phone number is posted on the hotel door!! Breakfast is basic and the furniture in the dining room is used. […] The carpet is stained. Not nice for a honeymoon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny and disappointing"
Of the seven hotels we stayed at in Southern California this trip, this was the most expensive and the least liked. The room was tiny and noisy. Breakfast was skimpy and could not get a piece of toast. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was a pleasant surprise, but we would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel near the sea"
Great hotel, right by the pier, about 20 minute walk into town. We were served cheese and wine before we went out for dinner, breakfast was nice, and there's even an outdoor jacuzzi! The room was very clean, Internet worked fine, and the staff were all very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing service, complimentary wine and cheese was a nice touch. Close to everything, super comfortable bed. Modern style which I like alot. Thanks Expedia!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was in a great location, 2 min walk to the beach, 10 minute walk to the pier and downtown, Friendly staff. Great stay Thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cute but lacking"
Each room has it's entrance off pretty plant filled pathways that makes it feel like you have your own little home. The hotel staff was helpful and accomodating. The daily wine and cheese is a nice touch. Our room was comfortable with nice furniture. The hotel is very well kept and quiet. The finish in the shower was quite strange. It looked grubby […] even though it was very clean. The owners really should consider installing tile to make it look nicer and more inviting. It would also have been nice to have a coffee maker & fridge in our room. I would not recommend this for a stay longer than a few days. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Très mauvais choix"
Nous avons payé un tarif exhorbitant (digne d'un hotel luxe.....) pour une chambre sombre avec le lavabo dans la chambre, au rez de chaussée en face de la réception : la salle de bains est minuscule: si vous êtes aux toilettes, personne ne peut accéder à la douche ! La superficie de la chambre est ridicule. Le système d'entrebâillement des fenêtres […] est archaïque : une petite manivelle qui passe dans un trou percé dans le chambranle de la fenêtre permet d'ouvrir les fenêtres de 3 cms.....du coup la chaleur rentre.... Si vous ne voulez pas être vu des gens passant devant votre fenêtre il faut abaisser le rideau opaque du coup plus aucune lumière naturelle (qui est déjà faible avec le rideau levé). Les photos sur internet ne reflètent pas du tout la réalité. Le petit déjeuner est quelconque et l'accueil indifférent. A éviter ! Rapport qualité prix désastreux.

"Chambre inconfortable et sans sécurité"

"Sehr nettes und gemütliches Hotel in Strandnähe"
Wir haben bei unserer Rundreise einen Stopp in der wunderschönen Stadt Santa Barbara gemacht. Das Casa del Mar Inn war sehr gemütlich und somit perfekt geeignet. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet. Der Strand und die Promenade sind quasi fast vor der Tür. Die Shops und Bars der berühmten State Street sind auch fußläufig zu erreichen. Die Zimmer sind sehr groß […] und sogar mit einer kleinen Küche ausgestattet. Die Wine Hour ist ein sehr netter Service. Auch das Frühstück war absolut ausreichend.
