The best location , we stayed in the original building with old fashion heater . It was really noisy , finally we had to turn it off . Parking $28 seems to be a little over price for an old pricy room ,with a loud heater . Very nice staff & excellent location!

I was very disappointed at the standard of the hotel. The hotel requires a serious updating as the decor is very dated, it was also cold as all of the outside doors were left open creating a draught.

Clean, well maintained, hotel right on the beach. Nice amenities including an outdoor pool and fitness center. Decent on-site bar and restaurant, but within walking distance of several restaurants and local shops. It is a pricey cab/Uber ride from the airport, so if you do not have transportation factor that in to the stay. However the shuttle to LAX has...

Dear Amigo42, We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed our Hyatt Grand Beds, they are specially engineered for our guests with their patented design. We agree that our location is perfect, steps away from the beautiful beach. On the other hand we do apologize for not meeting your expectations with your guest room as well as your breakfast...

I LOVE this town! As a child my family had a home in the area, but as time went on that became no more. So after many years away from this scenic area my boyfriend and I decided to go on a much needed road trip to the beloved Santa Barbara. Our choice of stay was the Hyatt because of...

I attended an family celebration and was overwhelmed by the amazing attention to detail by the staff. Krista and her team were so professional and the food was amazing. Highly recommend this venue, you won't be disappointed. It's beautiful and a great location, right across from the beach!
