"great hotel not good room location"
Our room #32 was way too close to the front office, we could hear all the transactions going on and the could probably hear us. I liked the hotel and the location is great but if you are looking for privacy don't rent #32. Also I called when I made the reservation and asked for a room recommendation that would be private and the front desk person told […] us to take room 32 so they gave us bad information.

The room was clean and cute, a little smaller than expected but still nice. The room had a blow dryer and iron which I always use so it was convenient. The location is right across the street from the beach and a short walk to the pier. I was concerned that it is a pet friendly hotel and the room might smell like pet but it was very clean and quiet. […] I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place close to beach and downtown"
Really liked the layout of the hotel - Spanish style, outdoor hallways between rooms. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. TV was pretty small, but you're kinda lame if you watch TV all day when you are staying in SB that close to the beach/downtown. Staff was friendly. Got a parking space off the street, which they have a limited amount of. Breakfast […] was nothing special. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid, cute, clean"
This is my third stay at CDMI because my daughter goes to UCSB and we have to drive her down and pick her up often between semesters. This hotel is a converted apartment blog with No indoor halls! Every room has its own entry from outside and they allow dogs for a small fee (and we have a small dog that comes with us sometimes). It also has wine/cheese […] every evening and a modest free breakfast (bagels, pastries, cereal, fruit...). The price is right for all you get. We once could not get a hotel at al because of UCSB orientation weekend and had to pay an outrageous $400 for a room that was smaller, no AC, and just way overpriced! CDMI is cute-- nothing fancy-- but quite comfy and homey:) the two bedroom suite is GREAT! A kitchen , two separate rooms with small flat screens, a small balcony, living room. If you have a family of 4 or two couples it is perfect!! Go. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Charming hotel near the sites"
Very clean hotel, comfortable bed and pet friendly. I wish there were in room coffee makers, sometimes you don't want to get dressed to go down stairs for that first cup of Joe. My room was upstairs on Bath and above the carport. While I could see the tall sails of the ships in the hrabor, I could also hear people walking by and those faux " Fast and […] Furious " wanabe's Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place for a getaway."
Stayed here one night after spending a weekend in LA. It's a nice little "B and B" close to the beach. Parking is a little tight since it is in a residential neighborhood but it wasn't much of an issue for us as we were able to park right in front of our room. It's less than a block from the beach and maybe two blocks from Stearns Wharf (the pier) so […] you can easily walk. The rooms were a bit small and older but nicely redone, new modern furniture and linens. No A/C but hey, it's SB, it doesn't get that hot, and there is a ceiling fan. Its nice they offer wine and cheese in the evenings and a simple continental breakfast in the mornings. All in all I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

"Small, overpriced room"
We were very disappointed in the room. The website photos were very misleading. It seemed like a chance for them to turn a storage space into a small, funky room, and charge a lot of money because of the motel's location to the wharf. At least the bed was comfortable and the shower was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a nice place!"
The staff was very nice and great.The place was very cute and felt like home.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for a single traveler."
Single room is very small but was comfortable since I was alone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short walk from the beach"
Individual "bungalows" are quaint, clean, quiet and the ambiance very inviting. Beautiful flowers everywhere, fire pit in the center seating area a relaxing atmosphere. However the descriptors in the advertising for the hotel are a little over done..."generous" continental breakfast buffet ? Not! My room had a microwave & a mini-fridge... i'd hardly […] call that a "kitchenette". I'm glad i had to get up early, since the gardening staff think nothing of making a lot of noise at 8 am, if i'd wanted to sleep in i would've been out of luck. It's a bit overpriced for what you actually get in the way of amenities, for what they charge i would've liked an ocean view but they are slightly off the main drag with no views at all.

"Nice relaxing spot"
This was my first time staying in a B&B. I was pleasantly surprised byt the coziness and convenience. The wine & cheese in the evening was great, the continental breakfast in the morning was just right.Genuine Expedia guest review
The fridge in the room was nice to have but the noise caused by its going off and on kept me awake most of the night. The TV was a joke. Smaller than my computer monitor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable for all."
Bathroom was very spacious. I thought it was going to have a fire place as shown in the web sight. I did not like the linoleum flooring.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Studio apt style B&B by the Beach, limited parking"
Room was like a stuido apt. Kitchenette, bed, couch, bathroom. Older property. Frendly staff. Breakfast is contental. Parking is not guarenteed. If you don't get a spot, you're on the street (which is crowded). If you do get a spot, have a small to mid sized car. the stalls are very tight. Courtyard is a little oasis. Staff was very friendly. Room was […] clean. Room was dated. Right next ot the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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

"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

"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.

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
"Close to the harbour"
We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon trip down the coast. It's a nice place and had a really helpful guy check us in. There's a good bar just a couple of blocks along selling a big choice of drinks and has pool tables, big screens etc. The breakfast was good and it's close to the harbour so we had a nice walk along in the sun before heading […] on our way.

"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

"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.

"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.
