Charming Old Building, Great Location

4.0 on February 12, 2018

A classic old Santa Barbara building steps from West Beach. shabbily genteel - friendly and helpful desk staff, comfy bed; breakfast abundant though not great. We had a Standard Room, only strange thing was carpet squares glued to the hardwood floor instead of a proper rug, but it was a pet-friendly room so maybe that's why.


Great Lication, friendly service.

The hotel is in a great location, close to the water and easy access to shops and restaurants. Room 22 upstairs was spacious, but smelled a little musty despite all of the windows (and deodorizer) in this corner unit. Pets are allowed, not sure if that was the reason. There is free onsite parking, no resort fee, and very basic continental breakfast. Hotel also offers wine, cheese and coffee in the evening. Staff was very friendly. Check hotel website before using 3rd party booking sites for specials. Easy freeway access to get to UCSB. Nice stay, reasonable price for Santa Barbara beach location.


Great place to stay

3.8 on January 26, 2018

This is a great places to stay. Very friendly staff and short walk to the beach!!!


updated older motel with some charm

3.2 on December 25, 2017

We stayed for four days as the epic Thomas fire abated. The motel has a friendly staff but is located near noisy train tracks and has little sound or weather insulation. The staff was friendly and the continental breakfast and wine and cheese were nice. The location is handy to the beach and to State street. Also the only Sambos left is an easy walk for a full breakfast.


Return visit to Casa Del Mar Inn

4.4 on December 19, 2017

This was our second stay at Casa Del Mar Inn in Santa Barbara and we would certainly stay here again. The king courtyard room was spacious and provided the amenities needed to feel at home during our stay. Housekeeper did a wonderful job and worked around our schedule. The front desk was helpful with answering our questions about the area. Continental breakfast offered many options for a good start to the day. Being one block from the beach is fantastic and free parking is an added perk. The only downside was from another guest who failed to adhere to house rules by leaving their dog unattended in their room, barking consistently for over an hour. The front desk was made aware of the situation.


What a perfect treasurer!

4.8 on November 05, 2017

In town for a tournament at the Polo Fields and never having stayed in Santa Barbara before, had no idea where to book. A friend recommended the CDMI and I am so glad. What a treasure!! Close to Sterns Wharf, restaurants and Hwy 101. The rooms are charming! & the evening wine/cheese reception was perfect after a long day out in the sun. We will definitely be return guests!!! The front desk staff should also get a shout-out....VERY helpful!


Great Intimate Boutique Inn

4.6 on October 15, 2017

We loved staying at the Casa Del Mar. The atmosphere is very inviting and the small size of the property makes for a very romantic and intimate vibe where you feel right at room. The breakfast was a bit lacking, but everything else was outstanding. We would stay here again if our travels take us through Santa Barbara in the future.


Wonderful amazing AND dog friendly!

We enjoyed our stay from beginning to end, this place is enchanting and the service is A+++++++++++++, also our dogs loved it!


Great location, nice little hotel

3.2 on October 08, 2017

We loved the location of this little inn. It is so close to both State Street as well as the pier and beach. It's a nice, quiet location with simple but nice rooms. We also loved that it was dog friendly as we were travelling with our large dog. Our only disappointment was breakfast which had been described as "generous" but was anything but. There was mostly cereal and bread items along with some yogurt and oranges. Very basic and far from generous. We were hoping for more fruit options and perhaps even some eggs. Overall, we had a find stay and would return...we'd just go somewhere else for breakfast.


Unexpected Haven

4.4 on October 08, 2017

It's difficult to find a place for a long-term stay that is conveniently located when you have a dog. We found everything we needed at Casa Del Mar Inn. We had everything we needed from an outside entrance to a small kitchen and a comfortable work space.The front desk staff was incredibly helpful, polite, and professional. I would highly recommend Casa Del Mar to anyone staying in Santa Barbara - especially if you have a dog.
