I'm currently sat in room 387 as I write this review, looking out over the balcony to a side view of the beach and Pacific Ocean. What a dream to be on business here! The hotel itself is very old and in room attire is a little dated and ageing. It's what I would describe as "shabby chic". If your... More

If you are just here for the beach this is a great location its just across the street. There are several restraunts within easy walking distance. If you want to go downtown to the lively State Street it is nearly a hours walk. There may be a bus service but we did not look into that option. We stayed in... More

Usually Hyatts are great. This one is not. The hotel, rooms, and furnishings are all well beyond their useful life. The ocean views are great and the location is also convenient if you have a car. But the rooms are just old and nasty. The chain should really consider tearing this place down and starting again or seriously refurbing the... More

Excellent location pretty much right on the beach. The nostalgia is very cool. I can see how someone would not like but, if you enjoy the history it is worth the stay. The in room AC unit are very loud but I opened the windows at night and listened to the waves crash. The bar is pretty good. Sit outside... More

I am livid. This is absolutly the worst hotel i have stayed at. There is no way this hotel is worth what they charge. I dont leave reviews usually even with a bad experience but this hotel is so over priced i will never stay at a hyatt again.

Some reviews are not very kind for the Hyatt Centric and some are correct in saying that it is not up to the Hyatt Hotel standards but you are in Santa Barbara where buildings are old. Our first night the cheapest price was with Expedia which gave us later checkout and breakfast for 2 for $259, however his was on... More
