Horrible. how can Hyatt allow that this is a hotel under their brand. Train track, Freeway, parking lot view. All bad. But the building itself? Like a motel from the fifties. I think one can expect more for three hundred dollars. Never ever again.

Hyatt quality amenities. Smallish room, private and quiet. Walk to the beach and use of Hyatt facilities is great. Good economical place to stay. We travelled with a baby and a small dog and this worked well. Will stay again.

When the people in the room above walk around, the floorboards squeak. The electrical outlet next to the sink needs adjusting: you push your plug into the socket and the plug slips out. Another review mentioned that there was hot coffee and tea at the check in area at the Hyatt...well, not any longer. The spa at the Hyatt is... More

For the price we paid this was really good value for money. Its not really a hotel itself and is just rooms managed by the Hyatt down the street. The rooms are Hyatt style and very clean. Short walk to the Hyatt where there's free tea and coffee and use of their pool. The beach is also a short walk... More

This accomodation belongs to hyatt, but does not deserve the name of hyatt. The carpets are very dirty and the Air Condition is broken. At least the beds are clean. I suggest you to go to a better accommodation for this price.

What can I say.... After being suckered into this hotel because of a glitch with the Expedia app I expected an average hotel especially since it is managed by Hyatt. Here are the issues: *First of all: WEAR SHOES OR SLIPPERS ... ALL THE TIME! The carpet has not been shampooed ever, I think. My kids walked bear feet indoor... More

We booked a room more than 6 months before our trip, at The Parkside Inn, requesting an upper level floor and room with balcony. We didn't receive the balcony and almost canceled our reservation when we were told we had to pay extra for the balcony, despite having requested it (this is something that could have been made aware to...

Love, love Santa Barbara! Biked the beach all day. Parkside is the poor relative of the Hyatt located at the beach. We checked in at Hyatt and walked the block or so to the Parkside dragging our luggage. Should we have asked for a lift at the front desk? It was not offered. I think that the Inn might have...

This place was just what we wanted on a budget. A short walk to the beach and about a 15 minute walk to the town (restaurants, shops, etc.). I highly recommend taking a walk along the train tracks to Figueroa Mountain Brewery (137 Anacapa St.).

Showed up late at night and got a price direct, do yourself a favour use the wifi and book it online we saved ourselves about $40 doing this. Literally was just here to sleep and checked out early the next morning but it was clean and quiet located about 5 minutes from the Main Street. Also a good thing to... More
