    Excellent dog hotel

    Great Location

    Excellent accommodation and super dog friendly. Visit Arroyo Burro Beach, an off leash beach for your dogs.

    Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort is very dog friendly

    We stayed twice at this resort on the way to visit family out of state. Our rooms were large with outside patio. The outside entrance to the lobby had dog treats and water for arriving and departing dogs. The grounds were beautiful. Well situated doggy bags and trash cans were available. This resort is very welcoming to dogs.

    Beautiful hotel that loves people and their pets!

    Just returned from 3 nights in an oceanfront room. Everywhere we took our Belle, the staff greeted her. They have water bowls for the dogs on the patios of the restaurants and lots of poop bags with trash cans. There is a ton of grass and endless places to walk your dog. We cannot wait to go back!!

    Good location

    Lots of places around the hotel to walk the dogs. Right across from the beach and grassy area by the beach is nice. Many restaurants with patio areas allow dogs also. The room itself was normal with a small patio that opens up to a small grassy area.

    Great location!

    We enjoyed our stay very much. It was right by the beach, and had great walks with our dogs

    Truly Pet Friendly!

    We just stayed at the Hilton with our Frenchie and had a lovely time! It was truly dog friendly, with a large water bowl and treats upon arrival at the main door. From there, we were given a ground floor room with basically a huge “backyard”. It was a balcony/courtyard, but at the end of the rooms, so we had about 120 sq ft outside for our pup to roam. When venturing around the hotel, everyone smiled and greeted us welcomingly. The room was clean and made for a relaxing visit. This was our first time staying in a hotel in a year due to Covid, and it was the perfect little family getaway! We would definitely book another stay and highly recommend it, especially if you have a dog.

    Idyllic location

    The hotel suite and balcony were dog-friendly. The hotel grounds were nice for short walks, and the grass and beautiful beach directly across the street were ideal. We did not receive a 'welcome' doggy treat bag on check-in, as we had expected, however (possibly connected with COVID-19 limitations?)

    If you do Santa Barabara, do it right

    This was as advertised. Worth the splurge to be that close to the beach with the amenities the Hilton provides

    Super-dog-friendly

    Not just tolerant of dogs, but dog-WELCOMING. Dog water and dog treats sit right at the entrance steps

    Dog goodie bag and in room dog menu!

    What a beautiful hotel right across the street from the beach! We had a dog friendly garden view room with a balcony and a glimpse of the ocean! The sound of the waves at night was wonderful. The room was decent size and the bed comfy. The Staff was extremely nice, especially Carley upon check in. They gave our pups a goodie bag with balls, biscuits and poop bags. The hotel is very dog friendly, even the restaurant allowed us to have dinner and drinks on the patio with them. There was even an in room dog menu! Parking was close, right outside our building. The hotel is a bit pricey after the resort fee, pet fee and daily parking however, we were on vacation so it was worth it. Some of the other slightly less expensive dog friendly places we looked into had really small rooms, so it was worth the extra money here for us.

    Outrageous Pet Fee!!!

    We've stayed here for years with various dogs. We've seen the pet fee go from $25 a night to now $50 a night. We will be finding somewhere else to stay with our dog because once you add the pet fee, to the resort fee, to the parking fees, to the taxes... You can easily add 50% to your advertised room rate.
