Clean rooms, outstanding staff, awesome breakfast! Free transportation to Legoland. Nice pool. One of the best places I have stayed! A great place to stay when visiting Legoland California. The breakfast included lots of fruit, bagels, French toast, croissant sandwiches, cereal, muffins and much more.

Great rooms! Nice housekeeping staff. But I didn't get the back corner room as promised. Out front instead, listening to the street construction noise. Speaking of construction. You have to contend with a big detour to get to the hotel. A little annoying after about the fifth time. Management gives conflicting answers. No we don't have a washer/dryer. Yes we... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night while visiting town for a wedding. Check in was quick and easy and the front desk (if you could call it a front desk) staff were very friendly.

The family recently spent 8 days touring So. Cal. and stayed at Hyatt Place. They raved about their accommodations. Their room was large and clean. The beds were better than average for a hotel.

This Hyatt Place is amazing. Great staff with hospitality and service as their focus. The location is good with easy access to many locations. Gallery food is well prepared and presented based on the standard Hyatt Place menu; however, staff make service 'local' and friendly.
