We stayed for 1 night on our trip, the room wasn't great for the price we payed, quite dated and the air con was faulty and once reported there was no engineer to come and fix it. The room was clean and the valet parking worked really well so no issues in that sense. Maybe if we had stayed longer...

We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon and the staff could not have been friendlier or more professional. We were greeted with a gift of champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries. Our king size, ocean view room was very clean and nice. View of the beach was awesome, too bad it was raining, not the hotel's fault tho....

The hotel has amazing views of the ocean and the staff is helpful.The only main issue is that the rooms are old and the carpet is worn. I hope that they redo the hotel soon since the location is the best

Upon arrival, my friend and I found out that the hotel was fully booked and there were no more rooms with 2 beds. We booked through Hotwire so the super helpful and sweet Bella at the front desk informed us that it's based on availability. For the first night, we stayed at the building across the street from the main...

Average hotel. Expensive and not worth the money! Breakfast was very expensive ($30) but the food was no better than a 2-star motel! Onsite parking for $28 per night is expensive but free street parking is available (if you're lucky to get a space).

My wife and I had the worst experience ever. We were sharing a bottle of wine with three business associates in the bar when one of the three women in our group noticed a security guy taking photos of of them. He was also taking photos of the barmaid. Later when the bar closed we moved our group up to...

Great location by the beach. Hotel has many small buildings (some ocean facing) that blend nicely with Santa Barbara architecture. Staff friendly overall. Ask for ocean facing rooms, otherwise you may find yourself in one of the more remote buildings. Free Street parking is available, we were comfortable with that - so you do not have to pay for parking....

Hello and thank you for the very kind words regarding our staff and location; we couldn’t agree more with you about our amazing team here. We are sorry that you were affected by the hot water heater failure. We are happy to report that this issue was corrected very quickly by our onsite team, though there was a brief time...

We were going to spend a night at this hotel, but when we checked in and saw the room, we decide to leave. The room was spacious but only had one chair. The two queen size beds had been made with linens that were long past their prime. The bathroom was minimal. The staff were very nice and pleasant. The...

My husband and I just spent the past weekend at the Santa Barbara Hyatt Centric. All the hotel employees were wonderful and so helpful! The hotel is in a great location across from the ocean!
