Satisfied

I found the Parkside after an exhaustive online search and thought it would meet my needs for my stay in Santa Barbara, and it did exactly that. Nice room, very quiet and clean and a very cozy bed.

Nothing to write home about

This hotel was significantly overpriced, but we were staying during the UC graduation weekend and I believe all hotels in the area jumped up their rates. Regardless, their were some oddities beginning with the check in at another hotel a block away and the nasty smelling sink. I'm not sure if it was the drainage pipe or the water, but smelled like low tide. Also, be warned if you are driving a big truck or SUV. Parking is really narrow in the small lot. Other than that, the room was comfortable and everything worked.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Most of the action is on or near State Street. There is ample parking, free for the first 75 minutes. You'll save by staying away from State Street and driving in.

Godd value, hit-and-miss on amenities

The room was small as advertised but the king bed was great and there was a small balcony and min-frig. Strangely, they included a nice touch like a wine opener, but totally forgot to stock the bathroom with soap or shampoo. Depending on your needs, that could be a good trade-off.

Santa Barbara Girl's Getaway

Stayed here for a birthday weekend with my best friend. Location was great. Walking distance to beach & convenient drive to State Street. Used the spa & pool at the sister hotel (Hyatt SB) and the services were fantastic. Rooms were big. Beds were comfortable. Parking was easy. I was upgraded for free and given complimentary breakfast up to $44 every day. Nice surprise. I would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay

Parkside Inn was great. We brought our dog and our stay was fantastic. We were close to everything. The hotel is beautiful, clean, staff is welcoming and the rooms were above average! The bed was very comfortable, lots of pillows, warm comfortable. Amenities at the hotel were great, gym, spa, restaurant. It was so close to the beach...I loved it!

Our stay

Good comfy bed and clean. Was a nuisance didn't have prior warning of need to check in at Hyatt and no facilities on site as such. Felt this was expensive, have paid far less elsewhere and been as comfy and clean. Hotel receptionist friendly at check in and out.
