Love this Quaint place!

I love the quaint Spanish style garden feel to this Inn, only thing that could make it better would be to have a Jacuzzi and better parking.


Great location and accommodations!

Located directly across the street from the ocean, walking distance to state street restaurants, shops, and the wharf. Clean, and pretty rooms. Complimentary wine and cheese was wonderful! Would definitely recommend to a friend.


A 4 overall

Excellent value with the winter special and good set up for me and my little dog. Updated room with a wonderful bathroom. The room however had a damp soapy smell like an older locker room even after I turned on the fan and opened the windows for quite some time.?The smell did not come from the bathroom. If not for that, I would have given a rave review based on value, charm, location, wine and cheese and breakfast. My only other suggestion would be to provide some protein with breakfast, hard boiled egg, Greek yogurt?

What a beautiful boutique hotel in SB. My husband, I and our two dogs LOVED the gorgeous King room overlooking the courtyard. The windows overlooking the courtyard were the tall French windows the opened. We made great use of the romantic electric fireplace. Ambiance and heat is A plus Parking onsite and on street. The one and only drawback I would say is it's distance from "Downtown SB". It's closer to the pier. But if you're looking for a cup of coffee nearby in the evening.......7-11 will be your only option. I recommend not touching the coffee available in the hotel lounge in the evening..........it's really pretty awful! Cold and tastes almost like dispensers are cleaned (but not rinsed) with soapy water.......Other than that I will ALWAYS stay at Casa Del Mar when next in SB


Very happy return guest.

This is probably my 10th stay. 9 of those stays have been for business and one for Fun. It is so much nicer to be in a Boutique style hotel and be close to the Beach, State St and the Freeway. Always A+.

Quaint but Modern B&B Style Inn

My trip didn't start out as planned. It started rough. Things changed for the better after meeting Dan at check-in. Dan is fantastic. He was still cleaning up from wine & cheese, asked if I'd like a care plate. Brought a tray right to the room w/ crackers, chesse, grapes & wine! Also made sure I had all the info I needed at check in. He is full of knowledge on the area--places to go, where to park, how to get places, where you can order food for delivery up until 3am......My boyfriend wasn't able to come up until the following evening. He would be arriving during the wedding. Never to fear, Dan to the rescue again! I left him one of the room key & my boyfriend's info. He made sure that my bf got the key, got his car info added to the room for parking, gave him directions to the restaurant and told him the best place to park! Cute room. A standard queen w/ a tub. Small but generally well setup room. A mini fridge? score! I had a place to store all my extra wine and cheese! Bathroom has shower curtain rods that bow out to give you more room. Little conveniences made it easy to feel right at home. Overall a clean place. The daily cleaning during my stay wasn’t quite up to par. Wasn’t being vacuumed. My bf actually got it himself one night to do. Hence docking a point on cleanliness. We were in one of the center buildings. Soundproofing may not be as good as at some places. Can't say for certain since I don't get out much. But we could hear our neighbor one night clomping around in their heels, banging things around, etc. SUCH a short walk to the beach, which is amazing! Firepit in courtyard lit on request. One of only 2 places on Bath street Thursday night that said “no vacancy” so I felt I had chosen the right place.


Great Room!

Lovely Characterful Inn

Really enjoyed the Casa Del Mar. The rooms were stylish and clean. The shower was very good..Its location is perfect close to the beach and not far from State Street I enjoyed the breakfast choice of bagels, cereals and pastries. Coffee wasavailable at all times and the Wine and Cheese in the evenings was a really nice touch.


My recent review casa del mar

3.2 on November 29, 2016

Being my first trip to Santa Barbara I had no idea of what to expect. It was my first visit to a B&B as well. The staff were top notch. Couldn't have been nicer. My room faced south; so it got the afternoon sun. HOT. No A/C. Ceiling fan didn't cut it. Box fan from front desk didn't do much more. Windows open day and night allowed street noise to filter in "without a filter!" Jeremy Lenzner
