You are right across the beach and there is a downtown shuttle stop right outside the hotel so the location is great. BUT this is a tired worn out hotel badly in need of refurbishment. Because of the location they can get away with it. It has the Hyatt name on it but the quality is not up to par.

I was overall disappointed in our stay at the Hyatt Santa Barbara. I didn't think the service, the people and the standard was typical of the Hyatt Brand... Rooms were outdated.. there was a leak in our room that was sticky and disgusting.. hard to believe that nobody noticed it except us.. Late check in... unfriendly front desk... Awesome bellman...

My family & I stayed from 7/23-7/27/14. You won't regret your stay here. The entire staff is very nice & friendly, the hotel is clean & charming, and the bonus is that it's right across the street from the beach! This place is a must! Thanks again Hyatt SB! -MT

I stayed for 1 week at this property and had a great time. I was on the 3rd floor with a King bed and balcony room facing the mountains. While I would have hands down preferred an ocean view, this was a decent enough 2nd choice and would gladly stay here again. I do agree with some of the comments... More

Beautiful and well groomed property; service was excellent and the sleeping rooms were spacious and beautiful. Great location right across from the beach and State Street; central to all activities that could be accessed by walking.

We stayed there for July 4th. A nice hotel, BUT, first, you have to valet park for $27 a night or park on the street. Never mind the fact that there are open parking spaces right in front of your room! Finding a parking place on the street was extremely difficult, therefore, we had to pay the extra. Then, we...

This place is great for young families. The location is right across from the beach. Easy walk. Very nice beach to enjoy. Also, on the other side of the hotel you can walk to the Santa Barbara Zoo. Great zoo because its not too big and you can enjoy the whole place in less than 3 hours. The staff at... More

It's a great location right across the street from the beach. Rooms were spacious, and the staff extremely helpful and attentive. The only drawback - No Wifi in the bed rooms, which was inconvenient. I'd stay here again.
