Nice rooms and plenty of parking

Pros: Cleanliness, lots of space in room, refrigerator, good screen size for TV, no problem finding a parking space, breakfast in morning, friendly staff
Cons: The support for the hand-held shower head had a screw slightly loose, so the shower head would not stand upright conveniently.
Location: We liked the outstanding brewpubs/breweries nearby with great food and the San Diego zoo/safari park.
Our room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, short wait for elevators and stairwells convenient, the staff very friendly, the breakfast very good, and I hear that they have 24-hour food availability with the in-house restaurant.

Hyatt Hotel - Near LegoLand

Pros: Clean and service was great. It fit a family of 4 with the room we had and all of use were comfortable.
Cons: The only thing is the breakfast room is to small for all the guests if the hotel is running full occupancy as they were short on seating.
Location: Plenty of places around to eat. Location was inland and the price was right affordability wise for a family of 4. Short distance to LEGOLAND for us.
Experience was great. Hotel was very nice, very clean, and service was excellent. Highly recommend this hotel. Its a bit out of the way from LEGOLAND but we found this pleasant as the hotel was quiet.

Nice rooms but a bit noisy

The hotel looks great, the staff were top notch and the room was amazing. However, there was a lot of noise that made it a little difficult to sleep, and the curtains in the room did nothing to block light so as soon as the sun was up our room was super bright. Food was ok, but mostly pre-packaged.

Enjoyed our stay

We spent a week at Hyatt Place with our daughter and it was nice and relaxing. Free breakfast was a hit. Free parking and free wifi were all wonderful extras! Staff was friendly and room was comfortable and clean. Lots of restaurants close by. We definitely would stay at the Hyatt Place again!

Never Fails to Please

Cons: Nothing I can think of.
Location: Well located for the commercial customer, which comprises the bulk of those staying there given its proximity to the Palomar/Carlsbad industrial compl
We stay at Hyatt Place whenever we go into the San Diego/vista, CA area to visit our children and their families. Although a "budget" hotel, the hotel has maintained a level of excellent consistency we've seldom seen in any hotel anywhere in the world. The rooms are always clean, roomy and very comfortable. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel even provides daily copies of the Wall Street Journal (something not the even the Royal Hawaiian in Waikiki does any longer!).

Best hotel experience yet.

The hotel and the room were such a pleasant surprise! The breakfast buffet was really enjoyable as well. The only negative feedback would be the cleaning service. We didn't get clean sheets and linens, they simply pulled them up off the floor at the end of the bed, and made the bed. We didn't get clean glasses or coffee cups, which was a bummer because they were dirty at our arrival. Despite that, we were really pleased with the hotel and our stay.

New Hyatt Hotels are great!

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
This Hyatt Boutique Hotel was a gem... It was new, clean and modern. The staff was warm and welcoming, we got their early asked to see if we could leave our luggage; Instead the person at the front checked to see if there were any rooms and offered an avail room-- that was great! We walked into our room it was very cute and modern the divider is great between the bedroom and living area. Free breakfast was a treat... good, a good selection and convenient! Great for travelling with a 2 year old
