This hotel is part of the Hyatt family and a bit hard to find. But it's modern, very comfortable, and we'll be,ow prices for lodgings in most of this overpriced city. Plus there's an onsite restaurant that has fantastic food, Italian mostly, and a pretty good wine selection. Only drawback is that it's hard to find and the parking lot...

About 1/4 mile form the main hotel. DO NOT get fooled like we did into believing this would be the usual Hyatt standards. This is like a motel backing on to a park with lots of homeless people. Car park is tiny and very difficult to park in. Rooms are relatively clean and cheaply modernized as this is a 'new'...

Worst hotel experience I've ever had. The pictures are a lie, the Santa Barbara house is an old decrepit building situated across from train tracks and a field full of homeless individuals. Aside from the terrible accomodations, the service was even worse. We showed up to the Santa Barbara house with no clue how to check in (along with 2...

I didn't know this was connected with Hyatt when I booked it. First impression was that it looked like an old converted apartment bldg. Gate locked with note on gate to check in at Hyatt Centric down the street. When we checked in at Hyatt, they told us they were giving us a FREE upgrade to the main Hyatt bldg....

We stayed for one night. First of all it was very hard to locate the check in desk, this is located on the back side of the Hyatt Centric off Cabrillo on Orilla del Mar. Once we found the desk, we were told that our room was not yet ready. This was fine as we had arrived at 1:00pm, which...

My room was located in a nice area. Walking distance from the Ocean. My room was very clean and stocked with all the amenities you could think of. The bed was extra comfortiable with lots of pillows. I enjoyed the patio with 2 chairs and a table to relax. I ordered room service and it was promptly delivered with 20...

My wife and I are very low maintenance travelers. If you can give me a clean room, safe hotel grounds, and quiet enough to fall asleep, you're well on your way to a good review. We don't sweat the small stuff and don't really care about decor, hotel staff friendliness, etc. because we are just looking for a place to...

Thanks to trip advisor reviews I went to the right place: The address here on the website is wrong, it takes you to one of the properties but the front desk where you checkin is in another place - here's the address: 1111 E Cabrillo Blvd, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. It's around 1/4 mile from the building. The front desk...

Trust me when I tell you this folks, this property is not even CLOSE to approaching a 4-star hotel. First, I was misled by the travel site that I booked the hotel through (I was promised a 4-star property with all the amenities, pool, spa, restaurant, etc.); what I got was swindled! I was put in the "Santa Barbara House"...

Recently I went to the Santa Barbara zoo and loved the location. I booked the hotel through a standard booking website. When we arrived at the hotel, at the address listed on our booking, there was nowhere to check in. There is a black security door that was unlocked, so we went in and walked all around, but there was...
