Culver City, California
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Stayed at the Parkside Inn in Santa Barbara for three nights. We chose this hotel as they allowed dogs. First night we couldn't sleep because the bed was sloping towards the head, woke up with a head ache. The bathroom was gross and moldy, and the carpet was moist. Got the management to move us to a different room. The...

Thank you for bringing this information to our attention. I apologize for the troublesome stay. This is not the standard we want Parkside to uphold and your personal experience is very important to us. I will pass this information along to our maintenance team to ensure our beds are level. As we have undergone renovations earlier this year, we purchased...

This hotel is owned and operated by the Hyatt. It is is an older hotel with no amenities on site, but you can use the Hyatt's Santa Barbara Hotel amenities which are just two blocks away. We had no problem with walking there and using the pool, etc. The room had no view (but that was ok with us) we...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the Parkside Inn. As a guest of the Parkside Inn we encourage all of our guests to utilize the Hyatt’s amenities. Located just a block from Hyatt, Parkside Inn guests are a short walk from the beach and Waterfront Trolley which makes trips throughout the day up and down Cabrillo Blvd,...

Stayed here in April for a wedding in the area and couldn't have been happier. Reasonable price and walk to the beach and to the Hyatt pool and fitness room - all included in the price. The parking was great and free - rooms large and exceptionally clean. The staff was very attentive to any needs we called about. Refrig...

We had a very nice stay at the Parkside. We knew about the check-in and 'annex' arrangement when we booked, so there were no surprises. The staff was very nice and check-in was efficient. Our room was basic, but clean. The beds were super comfortable. Bathroom was worn, but clean. We had neighbors on each side and we didn't hear...

Check-in to the hotel was down the street (5 minute walk) from the actual hotel at the Hyatt. Which I was a little disappointed with until we were told we had full access to all the facilities at the Hyatt, including pool. The rooms were spotless and very large. 5 minutes walk from the sea front and about a 20...

The Parkside was a great deal for the price. It is 2-3 blocks away from the beach. Check in wasn't a problem. You do have to check in at the Hyatt. The room was clean, and had the basics. You can use the amenities at the Hyatt, i.e. gym and pool. Pets up to 50# are allowed for a fee....

We stayed at the Parkside Inn on Veteran's Day. The building is styled and painted to match the Hyatt. The furniture, bedding, towels, & toiletries are identical, and the building was spotlessly clean. No cobwebs, mold or smells. New dual-paned sliding glass doors block outdoor noise, and large flat-screen TVs, along with microwaves, and refrigerators are a bonus. I almost...
