We are Hyatt members and always try to stay at Hyatt properties. This Hyatt, although in a great location, is really run down. Nice architecture, but the rooms are so out of date. Carpet is old. Our toilet had to be plunged twice. Very disappointed. I did not feel like I was in a Hyatt at all. Also, unless you...

We recently had the Hyatt in Santa Barbara as the block hotel for my daughters wedding. It quickly became the hub of a very busy weekend. Upon our arrival we were met by Roxanne our hotel sales rep, and offered an early check-in. And from that moment on treated graciously as though we were her own family. Every possible concession...

We checked in yesterday for room 108. The bathroom wasn't clean and there were hairs all over the place and we've been hearing noises from the jacuzzi and from the pool area. My 2 year old son wasn't able to take a nap during the day time. It's a nice property, the location is great. However first floor rooms are...

We stopped by for a day enroute to San Diego.. Built in Spanish Architecture, Hyatt hotel blends into the other monuments. Scenic mountains on one side and wonder beach view other side. Kids had good time at the beach..

This hotel exceeded our expectations for cleanliness and comfort-loved the bathrobes that were available for guest use! within sight of the beach, and across from a very cute cafe on the beach front. The hotel is slightly more expensive than others, but we got a great deal through priceline and felt the extra was worth it-although no breakfast is provided....

Pillows could have been better, ours were lumpy. Other then that everything was great. We would stay here again if ever in the area. Our room was very clean and spacey and very modern decor in our room.
