Great beach retreat hotel with excellent customer service, going to Santa Barbara look at the Hyatt Centric. Great location near the beach and attractions plus great location for walking or riding a bike along the beach.

First let's acknowledge all the scary reviews. I was so freak out by them, I almost cancel. A week prior to checking in, I called and talked to the front desk and my concerns were put to rest. They were super accommodating and assured me our room would be to our satisfaction. We stayed in the dog friendly building across...

The hotel is on the main drag along the beach. It served secret service for Reagan when he was at his ranch. You walk into a small,dark, lobby that is dated. Free coffee is there. We arrived a day early because we errored in the reservation. They had a room and would give it us for $430. It was the...

This is a fantastic hotel with gorgeous ocean views. We had a very relaxing stay and the staff were helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast had a wide variety to choose from. We would definitely stay here again if we ever pass through Santa Barbara.

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 Nice architecture, but the rooms are so out of date.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...
