Great location, across the street from the beach. Room relatively quiet considering we were on the first floor. Parking is a bit pricy and confusing, had a lack of communication issue but was fine. Very nice place

Nice rooms. Lots of street noise from Cabrillo which the hotel fronts and is the ocean side, calms down in the evening though. Furniture needs some work. I need some more characters, so Santa Barbara is a great place. Might want to try some of the other "boutique" hotels in the area.

Spouse and I used a Hyatt free night plus points for a two-night stay. Our room overlooked Cabrillo Boulevard so had an ocean view, but no balcony like the rooms in the rear overlooking the parking lot. Older construction meant a very quiet room, even facing Cabrillo Blvd. Mattress and super-soft pillows were excellent, almost as comfortable as our hybrid...

my room was well worn and a bit small for the $400 per night price tag. The view, from my balcony, of the parking lot was less than spectacular. On the plus side, there were some tables and chairs out in front of the hotel which looked out onto the pacific ocean. We had wine and enjoyed the view and...

On the other hand we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our terrace, we agree that it is a wonderful spot to sit back, relax and enjoy the sweeping...

Having booked this last minute for a supposed bargain 120 dollars a night, we were disappointed with this tired looking hotel. From the outside it looked good, but internally it needed a bit of TLC. The room was clean but tired looking, pool was nice but small, there was a jacuzzi and a sitting area with a fire pit which...

To be a traveler, one does not need to encumber the stress that often comes with a great excursion. We decided to play like we're from out of town, and came in for the relaxing opportunities that Santa Barbara can offer. The staff is friendly, the weather is great (even with the early afternoon June Gloom), and the pool provides...

We went to look at the hotel as a possible wedding venue. The wedding coordinator, KRISTA, was incredible. She went above and beyond, from her hospitality upon our arrival to her flexibility with our modifications to the contract. She was outstanding!! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding venue. She has an ease about her that makes...
