First the good news - this is a very nice, quality hotel and prepaid online it is by far one of the best values and deals I have had online in a decade. You will be checked in by your barrista and bartender as the small "front desk" doubles as a cafe and deli and bar. The goodies there are... More

Last weekend, my family and I went to northern San Diego for a quick weekend away. We were traveling with a 2 and 5 year old. The hotel was perfect for our stay. We had to check in late and the front desk was very accommodating. The room itself was great. We had a king bed for me and the... More

This hotel is in the middle of a construction zone and an industrial area. There is nothing around except a home depot and a discount tire. The "local" restaurants that they list on their website are miles and miles away (that includes Starbucks). I find the reviews on this page regarding the breakfast as suspect. When you walk into the... More

My family and I went to San Diego for a short vacation, and my wife booked this hotel. It was absolutely perfect. The breakfast spread for the kids and family was amazing-- egg sandwiches, pancakes, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, etc. This was not your average spread. The place was quiet, the staff accommodating and friendly, and the rooms spacious. All... More

I love Hyatt Place as they are consistent in portraying their brand and Hyatt Place Vista did not disappoint!

My family traveled to San Diego for a weekend staycation, taking the kids to LegoLand and Safar Park. We arrived early Saturday morning, and hoped we could check in early.

Our friend recently got married in the Vista/Carlsbad area and booked a block of rooms for the various out of town wedding attendees. When we checked in, Sarah was very friendly, delightful and helpful. Our room was adequate for 4 women.
