the hotel reception is on different site which is the main hyatt. It's a bit confusing, in the information, it said the reception site will be different. But it never says it will be main Hyatt and it is more confusing as the hotel name is" santa barbara house". Not including any " Hyatt" word.. I never knew it's under Hyatt until I got there. Otherwise, the room is really nice, clean, spacious and very new. The location is not on the beach and kind of very inland. But it's no problem for me.

"Close to the bay. Easy access from Hwy 101.."
Arrived late and got an "ocean view" room which meant right above the Main Street. It was noisy but the view was great. The room was nice; the bed was really comfortable. The buildings and grounds were well maintained and very attractive. Seems like a great location; we were only there overnight.

"Comfortable, Welcoming Inn - Close to Beach"
We stayed at the Inn at East Beach for 6 nights and had a lovely time. Our room, #134, had a fireplace and afforded views of both the ocean and the mountains. Size matters only in comparison. We had enough room, for sure, although I'm guessing some might consider it small. The king bed was comfortable with 6 large pillows - for which I was very grateful. All the staff are quite friendly and helpful - especially Kamal & Maria. We wouldn't want to forget to mention Tim, Ephraim, and Josh, though because they were so nice as well. Continental breakfast was sufficient - various pastries and breads, condiments, fruits, OJ & milk, coffee & tea. During hours when breakfast is not available, there's a great selection of tea and coffees for guests. The pool was not available during our stay, unfortunately, but we did enjoy riding bikes on our last day (Thank You, Christina!)

"Peaceful Rspite "
Although we only stayed one night, we were greeted warmly by the host and shown to a very large, immaculate, newly decorated room in peaceful, neutral colors with a beach theme. The hotel was just a few hundred feet from East Beach, walkable to Sterns Wharf, and the FunkZone which made it very convenient. The breakfast was all freshly made and delicious the next morning. Since we were just passing through Santa Barbara, we had only a short time to explore but when I return to SB I will definitely look to stay at the Pacific Crest again!

    Pocket Guide: Beach Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara and neighbouring beachfront towns of Goleta and Carpinteria is known as the American Riviera, thanks to sweeping white sand beaches, a year-round Mediterranean climate and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Santa Barbara is great for a weekend or longer, or to use as a base for a tour of the Californian coast.

    Beachfront Hotels in Santa Barbara

    With some of America's best beaches, Santa Barbara has a wide variety of oceanfront hotels, from casual inns with swimming pools and diners, small, family-run hotels right up to sprawling luxury beach resorts.

    There is a number of hotels and inns within moments of Santa Barbara's East and West beaches, and within easy walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants downtown.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Surf Beaches

    Californian coast is renowned for its world-class surf spots and Carpinteria's Rincon Beach is one of the state's top surf destinations. Give surfing a try with lessons from one of the town's many surf schools, or try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or windsurfing.

    Or relax with the locals on Carpinteria State Beach, one of the world's safest beaches thanks to its flat, clean sands and shallow, reef-protected waters. Explore the rockpools, have a picnic or just lounge on the beach, listening to the shore birds and the waves.

    Santa Barbara's Dining and Nightlife

    After a day on the beach or catching some waves, head back to your Santa Barbara hotel for a shower and a relaxing drink in the bar, before venturing out to sample the city's vibrant nightlife.

    Lower State Street downtown is brimming with hip pubs, craft breweries and cocktail bars, as well as trendy SoCal restaurants. It worth remembering that Thursday night is college night, when the city's students make their way to the many local bars to take advantage of their drink deals.

    From oceanfront inns and chain hotels, to swanky beach resorts, use Expedia to find the best deals on Santa Barbara’s beach hotels.
