Nice hotel, however there is absolutely no free parking on the street. This will cost you mandatory daily valet $10(very fast) and overnight parking of $28 totaling an additional $38 per night. Wow. The rooms were clean, nicely located right across from the beach. Staff was polite and wonderful. One thing I did notice is that the used room service... More

My family of four enjoyed our stay at the Hyatt. This expansive hotel Is perfectly located steps from the beach. The amenities and staff are wonderful and pleasant, and the property reflects Santa Barbara's old work charm. We will definitely return.

The Santa Barbara Hyatt has a wonderful location right across the street from the beaches and Ocean. The employees were excellent and always seemed happy and helpful. The food we had at the pool bar and restaurant was very good. That is the good news, and now for the bad. The Hotel is very impressive on the outside, but the... More

The bathroom grout and caulking need to be replaced, and the toilet was leaking in our first room. This is a maintenance issue that has obviously gone unaddressed for a long time. My wife and I just started trying Hyatt, expecting a more upscale experience than less expensive hotels but what we found was very disappointing. On the positive side,... More

The website for this hotel shows modern rooms in a hotel with pool, restaurants and other amenities. In truth the only modern rooms are in a separate property two blocks away in a seedy neighbourhood by the railroad tracks and freeway. Rooms in the main hotel are older and needing renovation. The hallways smell bad. I paid $350 a night... More

Window handle broken and wouldn't close -request twice to have it fixed and no one showed up. Walk on beach (great so close) but after we requested extra towels sent to room - told "be up... More

Dated Hyatt, food and beverages are uninspiring, rooms small and my room and bathroom smelled like vomit. They gym was dirty, out of clean towels and out of water in the water cooler -- this was despite the plentiful staff I saw on the property.
