For the price, it was the perfect place for a one night stay. The biggest downside is having to check in at another hotel. There was free parking, but the lot was quite small and hard to park in. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and there were very nice toiletries. The lighting by the mirror and sink was... More

We drove up to Santa Barbara from Santa Monica staying a few days here and there from Nashville, TN. Santa Monica was nice but Santa Barbara is by far our favorite. The Parkside Inn is owned by the Hyatt Santa Barbara (walking distance). You have to check in at the Hyatt Santa Barbara then come to the Parkside Inn. The... More

We spent two nights at the Parkside Inn. They are pet friendly, which was a plus as we were traveling with a tiny dog. Hyatt owns and manages this property, but it hardly lives up to the Hyatt standards. The property is on a side street, across from a sketchy park. Parking was not adequate for the number of units;...

I agree with the reviewer below who says the one-star reviews for this place aren't justified. What you have at the Parkside is a humble but perfectly OK place that's fine if you need an affordable place to stay in a good location. Our check-in, around the corner at the more upscale Hotel Mira Monte, was quick and totally pleasant.... More

It looks terrible on streetview and combined with the negative reviews on this website I was worried. I had booked into it for 7 nights it because it was by far the cheapest in the area and I knew I wasn't going to be spending much time at the hotel. When I arrived and checked in at the extremely nice... More

This little gem of a hotel was a bit difficult to find and check in was at their sister hotel was a bit down the street, but once that hurdle was cleared the place was wonderful. It is an older hotel tucked between a park and the ocean. The room was clean and we felt safe. From this location you... More

Reasonable value for Santa Barbara ($150/night) although a little unusual in that check-in and facilities (pool, restaurants) are a block away at a separate hotel (the more expensive Mar Monte). Other than this it's a nice place, a couple of blocks from the beach and across a small park from the zoo. It is quite a long walk from downtown... More
