About Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, Vista

Family-friendly hotel near San Diego attractions

20 minutes to the beach

Hyatt Place San Diego is less than 20 minutes by car from Carlsbad State Beach, great for snorkeling. At nearby Carlsbad Premium Outlets, a 16-minute drive away, you can indulge your passion for fashion at stores like BCBG Max Azria and Joe’s Jeans.

Legoland fun

An 18-minute drive will get you to the Flower Fields of Carlsbad Ranch, where you can take an open-air wagon to explore 50 acres of lovely blooms. At Legoland, 16 minutes by car, you’ll marvel at the skillfully rendered details of the colorful sculptures and theme park rides.

Free breakfast sandwiches

You can’t go wrong with the free kitchen skillet's signature breakfast sandwiches or the 24-hour gallery market’s to-go cookies. Freshly brewed Starbucks roast will give your day a jump start, and craft beer or an exclusive Mondavi wine will come in handy poolside.

Free WiFi, sleeper sofas

The comfy furnishings start with Hyatt Grand Beds, and extend to the sleeper sofas that will give your guests a blissful night’s sleep. If you’re not ready to call it a day, you can go online with the free WiFi, or take in a movie on the 42-inch flat-screen TV.

Are all pets now allowed?
I don't like the fact that dogs are allowed in The rooms. I'd prefer to know if there are rooms used solely for pet owners. I'm a huge pet lover but I don't bring them with me and I understand the need for emotional support animals but I feel as though it does make me think twice if animals I'm allergic to ha e been in my room. I'd prefer not to be at breakfast with a huge German shepherd at the table. It brings down the upkeep of the hotel

Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, Vista
Hotel was very well maintained and provided everything we needed. Although it was quite busy, the room was very quiet! Breakfast provided quite a few options (hot & cold) and had some variety from day to day. The breakfast area was very crowded (probably because it was Spring Break), but staff opened up a conference room for extra seating which was nice. Pool and hot tub were well maintained and perfect size for our kids to jump around and enjoy. Close distance to LEGOLAND and hotel provided shuttle service to and from park (although we opted to drive for convenience of storing things in our car if needed). Layout of our room was a bit odd, but I think it was because we had a handicap accessible room (sofa bed faced king bed, so of course our kids wouldn't sleep if we even seemed to be awake in our bed), but we did peek into the regular rooms and they seemed to be laid out differently with sofa bed to the side of the regular bed and a small "screen" between them offering at least the illusion of a little privacy.

There was a miscommunication on the shuttle, but the overall stay was pleasant. Staff are very friendly and the place is clean.

Very pleasant place for a Legoland vacation.
Great place to stay on a trip to Legoland. A little ways up the hill but discovered local spots to dine around the Vista area. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Definitely a recommended place to stay with family.

Hit and miss place
This hotel is located in the business areas of Carlsbad. Staff was friendly. The quality and selection of the breakfast was good although the breakfast area was crowded and seating was a pain. The lobby and outside premise of the hotel was clean and well maintained. The room was dirty! There was a dirty rag left in the bathroom, OLD DIRTY UNDERWEAR LEFT BY THE PREVIOUS GUEST IN THE CLOSET, the bath towels were damp !?!, and the fridge didn't work. Frankly, I'm extremely disappointed in this hotel. This hotel definitely was not what you would expect from a Hyatt hotel.
