We stayed at this hotel in the beginning of November and it made our vacation a memorable one. It is almost brand new and well maintained. We were in California for nine days and stayed 4 nights in this hotel. The beds were the most comfortable out of the 3 hotels we stayed in. I really felt at home here... More

My daughter and I stayed here with her one year old daughter. We picked the Hyatt Place because of the great reviews and amenities. While the room was large and very clean, I was disappointed that some basic needs (for us anyway) were lacking. There was no hair dryer in our room as advertised and no microwave. It would be...

This place is brand new, modern and very stylish! Last minute booking got us a king-sized bed with queen sized sofa sleeper which was comfy - bathroom needed more light, but everything elsewhere was nice! Breakfast had a lot of choices, especially like the fresh berries and yogurt, and the 'egg mcmuffin' sandwiches! It got a LOT crowded at 8... More

The hotel staff gave us a great first impression when they let us check into our room before noon. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. We enjoyed the large TV and easy access to all the inputs, built into the TV stand. The sink had lots of counter space (always a plus), and I really liked the modern... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hyatt Place in Carlsbad. This hotel is new (opened July 2012), very clean and quiet. The rooms are large. The beds are very comfortable. You should have a good night's sleep. Fast, accessible WiFi. The staff is great. I will return to the Hyatt Place in Carlsbad.

New idea for hotels. I like the free bfast and the huge room. I will stay here again and for $78 it's a screaming deal. The check in / bar/ cafe is odd, but at least the are trying something new. Location is good. TVs are massive.
