Great location, friendly staff, comfortable room. Would stay again

Pricey for the room we ended up in but that's Santa Barbara. Room was very clean except for some dirt or something in the sink when we first arrived, odd, may have fallen from the light fixture above after the room was cleaned.

location. across from the beach.

coffee was 15.00 for a small pot that said it was 9.00 They added gratuity which was fine, but then there was a delivery fee that I was unaware of reading anywhere. Should have just gone to Starbucks.

Not a fancy Hyatt, but clean , close to beach, weight room, street parking so you don't have to pay Hyatt for parking, kidney shaped pool and one Jacuzzi. ... more

We didn't stay at Parkside Inn because it was not what we thought we were getting. The hotel was dirty and the hallways had an Oder! We did not know that we had to register at the Hyatt and then drive to our room, we were very disappointed accommodations.

I think Priceline was not straight forward with the hotel accomendations, we will think twice before using them anytime soon. ... more

Staff was awesome, location was great, breakfast was better than I expected. Room was clean, well decorated and comfortable. Pool area was nice, parking was free and convenient. The Hotel was sooo convenient to the beach and State Street.

Bathroom door is louvered -not so good for privacy. Pillows were suboptimal- like a pillow case stuffed with cotton balls. Balcony was nice but wish there had been light blocking curtains.

Overall I was pleased with the hotel and would stay there again, but I will bring my own pillows. ... more

Location and price is then only positive thing about this hotel.

I checked put a half an hour afternoon checked in. The hotel has construction workers who stay there. They were leaning over the railing, smoking and drinking. I was I comfortable with that, not my scene and checked out a half hour after I checked in.

Great location, tiny rooms. You get what you pay for. ... more

I liked it because its near the beach.

Since we had the room downstairs, the people above us were kinda loud and we can hear them walking around upstairs because their floor were squeaky.

Other than the noises above us, the hotel was clean and the parking spots with roofs were great and we loved the view next to it. ... more

I really love the extra mile the staff goes to make sure you are a true guest of the property. Also, the all exclusive usage of the spa facility is such a class act on the Hotel¿s part.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
