The hotel is well enough looked after, our room was in good shape but was just rather small. The two main downsides were that although on the beach it's a bit far away from the centre of town. Also the parking is irritatingly expensive even if you want to self-park you have to pay the valet fee. There is free...

This review is for the Santa Barbara House which is one of five properties making up the Hyatt Santa Barbara. This property is located about a 1/4mi from the main building. It is located in a quite residential area across the street from a park. The property has a private parking lot with easy access and lots of shade. The...

Reviewed 23 June 2016 via mobile

This is a very average hotel in a very nice location. The rooms are characterized as newly renovated but we found them to be awkward and very uninviting. It isn't obvious what was updated other than maybe they painted the walls. The furnishings and fixtures are old and worn. The wall a/c units are older and therefore very loud. But...

We selected this hotel as we had a free Hyatt night in exchange for our membership fee. The best part about this hotel is the location and view of the ocean from the balcony. We did not have to pay the excessive $28 parking fee as we found a Diabled Parking spot that was free due to my husband's mobility....

I loved the location of this hotel: out of the primary tourist area of SB, but an easy bike or drive to just about anywhere you want to be. Pros: clean room, easy check in, very comfortable beds, free sangria/ or infused water in the lobby, friendly staff, free parking, nearly on the beach Cons: insanely slow wifi- likely due...

Hello and thank you for sharing your candid feedback regarding your experiences with us. Please accept our sincere apologies for the speed of our internet, an interface was down that affected some Hyatt Hotels, the repair was completed by early the next morning. I can assure you it is not typical for such slow speeds. Also, we are also saddened...
