We booked this place because we decided to go for a night to SB on our way to Ojai the next day. It advertised as newly renovated in 2015 and looked decent. But for almost $300 for the night, this place was absolutely terrible!! First, we had to call over 5 TIMES to make sure we got in this place... More

We booked this hotel on the grounds that it had been recently renovated. We visited for the 4th of July for2 nights. When we entered the room I immediately noticed that if it were renovated it was cheaply done. On the2nd day I decided to pull the curtain back to look at the ugly view of other apartment buildings.

We choose the Santa Barbara house because we have been to the Hyatt down the street and had a good experience. This was completely different. The staff explained that this place was "better" that the actual Hyatt because it was recently renovated. The furnishings and bedding were new and nice but there were minor things that were overlooked. The shower... More

I think the most important thing to keep in mind is that Santa Barbara is a VERY expensive place to get a hotel. However, that being said, I cannot recommend the Santa Barbara House portion of the Hyatt property. This is an older, rather poorly constructed building which has been re-purposed into hotel rooms. The rooms themselves are decently appointed,... More

We stayed at the Hyatt house it's a little bit far from the the hotel itself & pricey for what you get, the AC is very loud at night, you'll hear people talking or walking in the hallway but the room is big & balcony is nice. Overall the hotel/house is ok.

As other recent reviews mentioned, the property may be listed as Hyatt with a pool but you have to walk two blocks in your suit to get to the main building. We walked around a while before having to ask how to get to the pool area. The room was very clean and neat but the price was not right!... More

Being a remote site for this sprawling Hyatt property, this is the red-headed step child of the bunch. It has no front desk and therefore nobody to mind this otherwise very nice property. Our room #143 was also particularly bad (avoid it at all costs) as it is nearest to the front gate (which slams loudly each time it closes)... More

Everything was quite clean, and balcony was not bad even though it only gives you a small park view. It's a bit cheaper than the main Hyatt Santa Barbara buildings, but you can use every facility in the main buildings at the same time. Parking was somewhat tricky cos parking lot was tiny. When you ask for any room service,... More

We recently stayed in the Santa Barbara House. While this part of the Hyatt Santa Barbara it is NOT on the hotel's main property. It is a standalone building about a block and a half from the main property. The rooms, while the front desk, states that they were recently "refurbished" were not of the same quality we expect from... More

When we booked the hotel, we chose the "Santa Barbara house"-room option, as we were only going to stay one night. Stay away from this if your booking. The building looks like a old dirty motel, and you have no views, and the railroad tracks and highway close by. The only good thing is that the parking is free at... More
