This is the first time I went to Santa Barbara and my sister-in-law's husband booked us at the Hyatt Santa Barbara. As a drill, this morning I did my pregnancy exercise by strolling over downtown. My body (and legs) is aching that I decided to go back to the hotel to take a rest. I WANTED A HOT BATH to... More

The best feature of this hotel is its location just a throw from the sea. You basically have to cross the street and you are at the beach. The hotel is a complex of main house and villas around which was originally The Hotel Mar Monte and have now gotten the Hyatt brand but if you have stayed at one... More

Beach is a few steps over the road but the main town with restaurants and shops is a good walk away. Santa Barbara is a fantastic place and the beaches are fantastic. The town gets busy in high season so book a restaurant. The Hyatt could do with a lick of paint but otherwise it is clean and tidy. No... More

This place ROCKS! I mean the rooms are really comfortable, and they have separate buildings you can stay in that give a nice local feel. I stayed in the Santa Barbara House. I was here to lead a seminar for two days, and I do this almost 200 times per year all across the USA and Canada. The most important... More

Pleasant stay for the weekend with the family. Pier is a bit too far for walking. Overall, nice older hotel. Staff was nice. Preferred to park on the street during the day, and would valet at night. Went with toddlers and the zoo is withing walking distance.

Overpriced with average (or less) offerings. Good location. Check for construction during your intended stay. It might add noise, odors and it is a general inconvenience. It is not advertised obviously.

Driving north from LA, my husband I decided to take the long road home and spontaneously stop in Santa Barbara for the night. I had never used hotwire.com or any other hotel discount website where you book without knowing the name of the hotel, but we were feeling adventurous and went for it. We were pleasantly surprised to land this... More

The room was enormous and comfortable. The room we had had a balcony that overlooked the parking lot but it did have a balcony. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The soda machine didn’t take dollar bills but I got over it.
