Could be better

by rfmilanez on 24 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

Thanks to trip advisor reviews I went to the right place: The address here on the website is wrong, it takes you to one of the properties but the front desk where you checkin is in another place - here's the address: 1111 E Cabrillo Blvd, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. It's around 1/4 mile from the building. The front desk attendant told me that the room was fully renovated but it was not. Some pain on the walls, new carpet and lights are not a full renovation. Besides that, the room could be cleaner ...

Bait & Switch ! This is NOT a 4-Star "Hyatt" Hotel ! RIP OFF !

by Craig W on 21 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

Trust me when I tell you this folks, this property is not even CLOSE to approaching a 4-star hotel. First, I was misled by the travel site that I booked the hotel through (I was promised a 4-star property with all the amenities, pool, spa, restaurant, etc.); what I got was swindled! I was put in the "Santa Barbara House" by Hyatt. Yes, the property is managed by Hyatt and yes you can use their facilities, which by the way are NOT adjacent to the SB House, rather, the property is nearly two block...

This place is a bit weird, but nice and a great location

by Mellyca on 22 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Recently I went to the Santa Barbara zoo and loved the location. I booked the hotel through a standard booking website. When we arrived at the hotel, at the address listed on our booking, there was nowhere to check in. There is a black security door that was unlocked, so we went in and walked all around, but there was nobody. When we departed the hotel, we found a house phone and discovered that the front desk was at a different location. There was no sign, no indication on our reservatio...

Caught off guard

by Steve98391 on 08 Sep 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Like so many of the reviewers we were highly disappointed with our stay here. The main hotel is 1 and 1/2 blocks away and the Santa Barbara house is set in between a bunch of apartment buildings. There are no amenities in this building so be aware that you always have to walk back to the hotel. We had to ask to have our table and chairs cleaned---they never came so we cleaned them ourselves. They quoted us a price of an additional $50.00 per night to stay at the main building. Once we walke...

Short to our expectations

by Sebastiano M on 29 Aug 2016 (Family Traveller)

Reception desk is @ the Hyatt Hotel down the road 1/4 mile away so your need to get there before checking in. Our room was renovated but not even close to the Hyatt standards. We stayed one night and was ok, but would not recommend - there are better value for money solutions in SB.
