This is part of the Hyatt so you have to check in there, but this hotel is only 100 yards or so around the corner. You can use all the Hyatt facilities though, so that's nice. Our room had a king bed, a flat screen TV, and a small patio (sat 2 people comfortably). The only view from the hotel... More

We opted for this "sister" property to the Hyatt Santa Barbara since the price was so much lower. The Parkside Inn is in a quiet neighborhood about a block away from the Hyatt Santa Barbara which is across the street from a gorgeous beach. The hotel room was smallish but clean and adequate and very quiet. We had a refrigerator... More

Spacious Inn. Apartment style layout small living room separate bed and bathroom. It was clean on the surface but not deep cleaned found hair behind the mattress and on arrival there was some silverfish bug on the mattress underneath the welcome pamphlet.

This is a separate building that is part of the Hyatt Santa Barbara which makes it nice as they permit you to use their pool, spa and workout facilities, all of which are nice! The only drawback is the main hotel is about a block away so you have to walk to go to the pool/spa.The spa could have been... More

Big room, almost seemed an apartment, with living room and balcony, very comfortable bed. Quiet, good location, free parking but you need to check in at the Hyatt. Breakfast not included. Only stayed for 1 night but would go back.

Pros- The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Free parking. Hyatt amenities included. Cons- Dingy, dated, tiny, only somewhat clean, and very old bathroom. The TV reception was terrible. Santa Barbara or not, $100 a night should get you better than this.

This is a very basic hotel annex for the Hyatt. Staff allowed us early check in and will escort you to the rooms if needed, but its very straightforward & easy to find. It was not noisy despite being close to the RR tracks. Did NOT hear noise from elevator , nor other rooms. Pretty standard room, good size, clean... More

First, the pluses: The King bed was very comfortable. The check in staff and everyone else including the maids were very friendly and did their jobs well. We had a room near the elevator which some people have complained about, but we found if we kept the fan on all the time, the 'white noise' kept us from hearing anything.... More

We stayed here for 1 night with our 3 young children in a large size room with 2 queen beds and a baby crib. The baby crib was high quality and super clean. The crib was beautifully made up with a padded mattress and crib sheets, as well as, a lovely travel size assortment of baby toiletries! We thought this... More

Clean, quiet, great beds, great location, plenty of parking, friendly staff. You have full access to the Hyatt which is about 100 yards away. There is a park across the street. You can walk to the zoo and wildl
