I loved that the price was decent and we were still able to use the amenities of the Hyatt hotel. I also loved that it was just a two block walk from the beach and the room was spacious and very clean.

Since it is an extension of the Hyatt, there was no concierge or reception in the Parkside Inn itself. You would have to walk down the street to check in. The hotel key kept randomly failing every day which made it more difficult to correct.

The room was very spacious and the staff were very kind and would go above and beyond to try to help us. The gym was wonderful and the location superb. It was only a 2 block walk from the beach and we didn't have to pay nearly as much as it would've cost to stay at the Hyatt. My only major complaint was that our room key kept getting deactivated and since the hotel reception was in the main Hyatt hotel, it made it much more difficult to remedy the situation. We had hotel key issues daily but the staff was k...

Close enough to the beach and part of the larger Hyatt Group

Near the train tracks which goes by several times a day.

Very comfortable and pleasant stay.

The location is very good, close to East Beach, State Street and the wharf. The rooms are nicely furnished, the bed was very comfortable, and windows open. They have a good continental breakfast with an amazing selection of muffins and pastries.

Almost all the rooms require climbing steps. The room price was very high for the rating of the hotel, but I paid it because it was university graduation weekend.

Very friendly and helpful staff (owners). Rooms were especially nicely furnished. One room (117) has a partial view of the ocean/beach, and is very spacious--I'd recommend reserving this room if one plans to spend much time in the room. Breakfast is served in the lobby, and can be eaten in the rooms or outside--might not work for some if the weather is not pleasant.

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.

Loved the location, it is walkable to many places on the beachfront, but it does take nearly 30 min to walk to Stears Warf so you have to be up for that. Rooms were clear and quaint for the most part. Quiet, decent flat screen TV's, the pool is warm.

The carpets need to be changed, they are pretty nasty (wear flip-flops) and lighting could be improved in the rooms, it was kind of dark unless you open the curtains on both sides of the room.

Great location, and good price. Convenience story one block over, and 3 blocks up, one more block up to a grocery store. Bedding was nice, and the whole place seemed pretty clean, no funky smells. Cute balcony, with a little ocean view.

The hotel has pleasant grounds and is in a great location across the street from the oceanfront. It has easy access to State Street and the Santa Barbara Bowl and other attractions in the area.

No free wifi in the rooms, the parking fee add-on is annoying as the hotel is surrounded by a huge parking lot and you have to drive to your room because the hotel is so spread out.

The hotel was generally friendly and accommodating, and the room spacious and clean. I don't know why hotels greet you with $7 bottles of water in the room however- it is a very unwelcoming gesture and guests would be far more impressed by the hotel if they offered a couple of free water bottles on arrival. There is a nice large pool area with cocktail service, but the pool was full of little kids so is perhaps more of a family friendly hotel than romantic getaway. The King room was quite large and had a separate seating area that was quite nice. If you really want a good view, ...

No

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. My wife thought that the immediate response to requests was something we haven¿t always experienced with other hotels.

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.
