College visit

The Hyatt Santa Barbara is in the middle of a remodel. The portion of the hotel that we stayed in has not yet been re-done and is shabby. Carpets are old, everything about the rooms feels, well, in need of an upgrade. The hotel did not meet my expectations based on stays at Hyatt's around the country. I cannot say anything about the portion of hotel that has been completed, as I was not in it. If I were to stay there again soon, I'd ask to stay in new section, and also be aware of the construction going on. The location is good, east of the bustle of State street and on the ocean. Everything is expensive in SB, but I couldn't help wondering whether the rooms would have been just as nice in one of the many surrounding hotels who advertise in the range of $100 cheaper per night.

Santa Barbara Hyatt

The prime location initially is quite appealing, but this is one of the most mediocre Hyatts. The rooms are spread across various buildings. Our room did not even have a view, but it was nearby the beach. Room was fairly clean, but it was necessarily a 5-star experience. IMO, too expensive for a 2.5 star experience. Worst part was the hot tub jacuzzi had a dissolved, used tampon which we had to have employees clean. It was apparent that was in there for over a a couple hours, so wish that could've been taken care of earlier.

doesn't meet expectations

When I arrived it was gloomy and cold the weather wasn't what I was used to seeing when I visit California. I liked how it accommodates dogs but thats about it wasn't impressed and I wasn't staying at the Hyatt but a building a cross the street called Santa Rosa. Just a open building with the rooms. Nothing much to it. THE Hyatt Santa Barbara was the building with all the amenities and looked pretty nice. I do not think I'd want to stay here again.

Loud and noisy

(-) My room was close to their parking (on the first floor close to the gym). I was continously hearing the loud noise of their staff talking/laughing together ( I am assuming the parking staff)... it was hard to sleep... It didn't seem like they paid any attention to the rooms right behind the parking space... (+) The room was clean.

Great Location

Very nice - bed was comfortable, room was clean and was quiet. The AC did come on and off all night which was a bit annoying but over all would stay again.

Rate was a bit high for the size of the room, but it was clean, tidy, the staff was friendly, and the bed was very comfortable. Would stay here again.

Valet parking is $26 a night but there is plenty of street parking. Just make sure you read the street signs for when you can/cannot park.

Parking policy

We were very pleased with this hotel with the exception of having no choice but to pay $26 a day for valet parking. The room rate should have included free parking as there was ample space available. I realize this is not unusual at higher end motels -- that's why I usually avoid them.
