Cute little hotel with wonderful amenities. The queen queen bed configuration is great for families. The staff was eager to serve and offered assistance at every interaction. The pool area had a great little bar with a fine young man making delicious cocktails. Walking distance to State street and many fun sites including the court house and pier.

Yes it is clean but at $300 a night I expect something great, not a tired, aging place with a pool area that is cramped and uncomfortable. Extremely friendly and very knowledge-able staff makes it more enjoyable but this hotel is a rip-off at $300, would have been ok at $150.

I was disappointed yet not unhappy with this Hyatt. The staff is so warm and friendly it was hard to be upset. The room was drab and dreary but the beds were totally comfortable and the bathroom was small but pleasant. The A/C unit is LOUD! They provide earplugs in the night stand. The food and wine are great at... More

The room was clean and large. We stayed in an ocean front room which had a partial ocean view. There are nice trees in front of the hotel, and they block some of the view. The grounds of the hotel are pretty. We were invited to a free happy hour at the hotel, where they offered wine, beer and appetizers.... More

Had a good night stay @ Hyatt Santa Barbara. There is free coffee in the morning and Luis, the front desk manager made us feel special on our anniversary with a bottle of wine. The rooms are a little dated and very noisy, but that is no fault of the excellent staff.

This hotel was our last stop in California, and I can say that although the location is excellent and the room is very clean and well kept, the hotel has some annoying things that really made our stay a bit worse than it needed to be. 1. You cant park on hotel property, if you want to do so you... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt Santa Barbara on a Friday night during a trip up the coast. We got the room for free because I have a Hyatt credit card and we redeemed the one free night reward for this stay. Since we went out to dinner first, we didn't check in until 9 p.m. that night....
