I stay here twice yearly for a week, and the room is very large and the location is convenient. There was nothing outstanding on this visit; however, I was awakened late at night to the sound of a slamming door over and over, along with power tools. I finally looked out into the hallway and two men were working on... More

Dear BCTE4, I am disappointed that after three stays with us, we have not made you a raving fan! I do sincerely apologize that you were awoken by our team working on a damaged door late at night. I have discussed your comments with our engineering and housekeeping team regarding the attention to details during your daily housekeeping. We should... More

The Hyatt Place came recommended by a friend with young children. We weren't disappointed! We had a great experience, the hotel staff was wonderful, very accommodating, knowledgable about the area and child friendly. We also loved the perks, like, free breakfast, the hotel shuttle and the free wifi!! We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Angela G, I love word of mouth recommendations! Social media is a great tool to begin the screening process of where to stay, but to have a trusted person in your life give their advice on where to stay is like gold, and I am delighted that we met your expectations, and have now earned your recommendation! We have... More

The rooms are setup just like every other Hyatt Place. This lends itself to work well when traveling with children. When you get there, it might not look like there are many places to eat nearby, but they are all within a mile or so.

This is a plan-B choice if you couldn't book any in the city of Carlsbad. Room was super clean, and dead quiet. Staff is of typical standard hotel chain. Free breakfast beats most "continental" ones, though demand for free fruit always surpasses supply. It is not too far from Legoland, but the driving at total dark night might be a... More

Checked in on July 4th and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Arrived early and they still accommodated me following a long hot drive through the desert. They guided me to my room and I was able to clean up and take a nice nap before meeting friends at the beach for the 4th celebrations. Once again the staff... More

Nice location alternative near San Diego. Clean. Helpful & friendly staff. Quiet even with a lot of families due to Lego Land being near. Close to the beach. About 30 miles to the pier/downtown San Diego. Near eateries & shopping. Decent, not gourmet, breakfast. Wi-Fi available in the the rooms.

There was an abundance of families with children at this hotel, which was not a problem for me since I was staying here with my sister's family and my own. The relatively small swimming pool was teeming with kids, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. The continental breakfast was in a nice setting, but seats were hard to come by around... More
