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.

Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, Vista
Incredible Stay
The hotel is located in a residential area so the traffic is light and easy. My husband and I loved how close it was to restaurants and breweries. The hotel room had a great set up that included a living room area that was great for lounging. The price included free wifi, parking, and delicious breakfast buffet! I will definitely be staying here again!!!! p.s. The hotel bar closes till midnight

Very Good8.0
Nice place no ice.
Only problem with this hotel is there was one ice machine on each of the 4 floors. They were broken on the 4th, 3rd and ground floor.
Scott, us2 night trip
Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, Vista
The hotel is nice enough. The bar is an extension of the front desk and only seats 4 people. The breakfast was mediocre. The pool was not heated and the Jacuzzi was broken. One of the two elevators won't go unless you push the floor button numerous times. Also, this hotel is VERY close to Lego Land and if you don't want to be surrounded by kids in every common area of the hotel, pick a different hotel. Oh, and our room had a really funny smell. If it was any stronger of a smell, I would have changed rooms.
Melissa, us1 night romance trip
Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, Vista
AC/heating unit super noisy, toilet bowl cover broken, shower doors super wobbly, cleaning crew too noisy, we would wake up every morning at 7 to the noise of vacuum cleaner, no breakfast menu available to order from, too far from Legoland, our original booking was very close to Legoland but changed our booking to this hotel at the very last minute. Was not restful, peaceful stay at all, not happy with the experience.
