Lovely hotel near the beach

good location, was underwhelmed with facility

the location of this hotel is great. when we got there just after 4 (check in is at 4) our room wasn't ready, but the front desk staff took care of our amenitities fee to compensate. our room wasn't very clean, i.e. dirty furniture, both bedside tables had what looked like something spilled and dried all over them& was a lot older in person than what the pictures lead you to believe. the other frustrating thing was that the description of the fees and what was included was somewhat misleading/confusing. it said if you pay a $26 fee - you get breakfast. we were prepared to pay this and were hopeful there would be breakfast available to us but the front desk staff told us there are just onsite restaurants and a buffet where you would pay for what you get, rather than paying an initial fee for breakfast for your whole stay, which is what our understanding was. we were hoping to have breakfast available to keep us from eating all 3 meals out. overall it was not terrible, but i've stayed in better kept, newer hotels with more amenities included for the same price. probably won't stay here again.

Parking and staff could improve

Parking ridiculous $37 a night. When I talked to the person checking me in. She kind of had that take it or leave it attitude. She could have at least tried to justify it some how. When I asked how much would I be charged total including resort fee. All she kept saying was $29 resort fee, and $37 Parking per night and i kept askinghow much are the total charges that are going to be charged. Anyway, moral of the story, $37 per night is rediculous. Out the door I paid $209for 3 nights including resort fee. I was missing some things from my room that were in other rooms., some things were ripped or weather beaten. That being said, house keeping did a great job, waterfront suites were great, literally waterfront. It is a beautiful spot.

Add Another $50/daily

Pros: Staff, wifi, comfortable
Friendly staff, rooms comfortable, good wifi. There is practically no public parking available, so you are forced to pay $37.50/day to park at hotel. Add this to the "resort" fee and it's $50/day.

Extra fees galore.

Pros: Clean rooms, comfortable beds, pools and slides for kids.
Cons: Exorbitant fees.
Location: Nothing immediately close by.
Extra fees essentially doubled the cost of our stay. We made a date change greater than 3 weeks prior to our stay and they assessed us a huge fee. Reservation date change fee (weekday stay made greater than 3 weeks prior to reservation) $400. Parking fees (3 night) $115. Resort fees (3 nights - despite arriving after all amenities closed the first night) $85. (Based on number of nights - not negotiable.) Kids turned on cartoons on T.V. - $13. (No lock out for on demand.) Other than the cost, the rooms were clean, the pools were nice, the fitness center had weights and equipment but nothing to wipe down equipment with. The valet and bell service were friendly and helpful. The concierge recommended an expensive restaurant when we asked for a low end family friendly place (didn't take that advice). Overall a nice place to stay, but we won't stay there again because of the extra fees. We could have stayed a little further from Mission Beach for cheaper and still enjoyed the experience.

Not what you would expect at a Hyatt.

Pros: The staff was friendly, and the manager did refund my resort fees and one night of our stay.
Cons: Replace the outdated AC in the building, and clean the rooms well.
Location: Plenty to do at Mission Bay. We rented Kayaks and paddled around the bay. Plenty to do in San Diego.
We made a reservation online through Travelocity for the Hyatt Regency, Mission Bay, San Diego, CA. The picture showed a beautiful tall building by a great pool, with a view of the bay. What we got when we arrived was "Bay 2", an old dilapidated 2 story building on the other side of the pool. We called it the Hyatt slum. For about $300 per night (with resort fees) we got two queen beds, a room that smelled like mothballs/mildew, dusty, dirty carpet, mold growing in the grout of the tiles on the floor, walls, and sinks in the bathroom, and an AC unit that was ancient, extremely loud, and did nothing to remove moisture from the room. This was our final stop on a two week vacation around the Western United States. We had great hotel experiences for less money everywhere else we stayed, and all included a good breakfast. Not the case here. While there was a great outdoor pool with water slides, a pool-side bar, and friendly staff, the room left much to be desired. If you want to spend the day partying by the pool, spending a lot of cash on food and drinks, and just need a room to pass out in after you are drunk (the only way to fall asleep with the AC running), then this is the place for you. Otherwise, I would not recommend this place to anyone.

evaluation of the hotel

Pros: Quick check in, very courteous.
Cons: We were looking for a place to eat. We checked in about 11:30pm after arriving at the airport, getting our luggage then our car.
Location: It was okay. Not too far from the airport and away from the city.
We arrived late in the evening to the hotel. The parking was kind of far away. The room was clean and served its purpose. We enjoyed the coffee in the morning.Overall room was OK.

Terrible Staff!

We arrived at 9:00 pm and were "upgraded" to a room with a view. Little to find out that the recent storm wiped out the water main and gas line. My wife and I woke up to cold water. Called front desk, and they said it'll be fixed in a couple hours. We went on with our day. Came back at 8:00 pm and still no hot water. Called front desk again. They said they tried calling us, for that we need to change hotels. Talked to a lady and she said since we booked through Travelocity they can not send us over to the other Hyatt. We got transferred to the Dana across the street. I did not pay for the Danas standards. It's a lesser hotel than we wanted. Front desk told us to keep calling throughout the next day to check on the water situation. We gave her out cell number to call us since we were not going to plan our day around them. Called again later in the afternoon, and still no progress. We checked out of the Dana and went home. Multiple guest from the Hyatt were sent to the Dana and we're not happy with it. Some even had to pay full costs for their stay. They had a younger gentleman named Anthony who felt bad about the situation and took off our parking fees and resort fees. His attitude was way beyond his fellow employees. Sad situation for the hotel, but terrible attitudes of the staff, and the unwillingness to help ruined my wife's birthday trip.

Relaxing weekend getaway!

My boyfriend and I decided to get away for the weekend and I had stayed at previous Hyatt locations and I have always had a good experience and this one was no different. My boyfriend and I will definitely be coming back!
