Great location - Not so good Plumbing/HVAC

by Sam B on 27 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

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. However, physical infrastructure (especially plumbing) is poor. -Sewer plumbing unreliable - there was backup into the tub/toilet -Hot water...

More Like a Motel 6 than a Hyatt

by William R S on 27 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

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 location is great, just across the street from the beach, but....

Nice Historic Hotel!

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! Unfortunately for us, it was rainy and chilly 3 out of our 4 days. The dining room had a nice breakfast buffet, where we could sit and look out at the rain and waves. The rooms were fine-a little dated, but the beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a great shower-always hot! My only complaint is that t...

Perfect location and great service

by Emily B on 25 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

The Hyatt is a perfect location for staying in Santa Barbara. Right on the beach, guests can easily take a stroll along the ocean. I reserved a room block here for guests attending my wedding, and the staff were so helpful and accommodating. They even ensured the room I got ready in the day of the wedding had a balcony and a fantastic view right of the ocean. I only have a few minor complaints, and that is the reservation system for verifying room blocks was a little disorganized--guests wou...

Don't do it, even on points...

by cplax25 on 24 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Tried a nice weekend getaway on points/cash deal and left quite disappointed. Hotel is not up to Hyatt standards. Old, broken screens, etc. Multiple staff errors during our one night stay including phantom charges on our credit card. Took multiple emails and phone calls to finally get resolved. A/C units sit right above the bed and sound like a jet airplane in the middle of the night. Outside of the location, this hotel is a fail. Shame as Hyatt has put the minimum into this hotel for upkeep.
