Recent renovations were nice.
Our room (room 143) had some serious issues. Although a nice big room with recent renovations, the room is right next to/against the wall with both the front door and the elevator. The front door is a big metal gate, essentially, which slams and rattles every time someone comes or goes. This sounds is very loud in the room and actually shakes the wall, which is right where the headboard of the bed is located. Even worse is the elevator, however. The machinery or hydraulics for the elevator are in the wall and make a ridiculously loud noise everytime someone uses it. My wife and I got to the point where we couldn't help but laugh at how crazy this situation was. This room needs, at a minimum, sound proofing and probably more realistically needs to be changed to a non-room. Maybe a place to house the ice machine, which is just awkwardly in the hallway right next to the doorway of another room. I suspect many of these problems are unique to room 143 because of where it is located. But something really should be done to fix this.
You must check into the main hotel. No lobby at offsite location.
The hotel itself is very secluded with nice seems like newly renovated spacious rooms with nice bedding and bathroom. The hotel was fairly close to our destination (wineries in the funk district).
The hotel is actually a satellite for Hyatt Santa Barbara and is very confusing to get to/check in. You have to check in at the actual Hyatt Santa Barbara a street down from the "Park Side Inn" hotel (which they actually renamed to Hyatt Santa Barbara). There's no one at the Park Side Inn to check you in or give you any information on how to check in so we went to the actual Hyatt and asked the valet boy if this is where we check in for Park Side Inn, he looked at us like we were crazy (I believe he said "uhm.. no I don't know what Park Side Inn is... this is the Hyatt). Anyways, long story short, make sure yo go to the Hyatt Santa Barbara to check in first, and then go to Park Side Inn.
