Nice, clean, convenient hotel with an awesome breakfast! People at front desk were very friendly and the shuttle service was a great perk for transportation to Legoland and the drivers were very friendly!!

I love Hyatt Place, and stay with them everywhere I can. It has become my first choice of hotel where they are available. But this one in Vista/Carlsbad is the best one I've stayed at. The staff is extraordinarily friendly. The hotel is spotless (they are always cleaning... the floors, the windows, etc.). And the management of the free breakfast... More

Excellent, enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We took our kids and grandkids to Legoland. The hotel was close to the park and had shuttle service. The breakfast selection and quality of food included with the room price was very good.

Dear Kevin V, Thank you for selecting our hotel to meet your needs during your trip down from Santa Clara. Even though we are in northern San Diego county, our relative proximity to the 78 and 5 freeways makes it easy to get to points south such as Sea World (barring traffic).

I've now stayed here a few times while on business trips to the area. The Hyatt Place is always, clean and tidy and quiet with good size rooms and excellent facilities. The staff are always helpful if you have any snag. It can get quite busy on weekends due to its proximity to Legoland etc. Rooms on the west side... More

We stayed in room 130. The towel rack inside the shower that holds 'clean' towels were VERY rusty. It questions the cleanliness of the 'clean' towels after they are placed on the rusty towel rack. The light switches inside the bathroom were 'finicky' as the front desk staff puts it. We had trouble using the bathroom lights, especially at night.... More

Good hotel. Clean and quiet. Don't expect a lot of friendly attitudes or eager to help employees though. Stayed here with wife and 3 children. Overall satisfied, but would have appreciated some help with luggage or an implied concern that anyone at all working there cared about our experience.

This hotel was amazing. The room was quite large and very clean and accommodating. We felt like we were in an apartment! The buffet breakfast in the morning was really good. Incredible variety and tasty foods as well.

We were very happy with this hotel!!! Well-appointed and nicely laid out hotel room. Everything worked and ran well including the wifi and fitness room. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and the facility was large enough to accommodate customers without crowds or long waits. The staff was very efficient and polite. We would come back again!
