The hotel is just fine. Staff is nice, breakfast was nice and parking wasn't an issue at any time I needed to park. The only complaint I have is the water pressure is really low. It's basically a low hose setting. Aside from that I would stay again. It's one mile from Lego Land and two blocks from the ocean.

This hotel is comparable to a Motel 6, not what you’d expect from Hyatt. The staff is friendly and location is great. There’s WiFi and the AC was nice and cold. The kitchen area is nice with a large refrigerator. But the room layout makes it feel small and a little awkward, there were many stains on the couch, the latch on the door was broken with a black splatter on the peephole making it difficult to see out of. One of the dresser drawers was broken and the carpet looks and feels like it hasn’t been cleaned in years. There was only one towel in the bathroom (the staff did bring more right away) and the extra blanket in the closet was frayed with a hole in it. The overall feel is dated and dirty. I would not stay here again.

Immediately upon walking into the bathroom of our room we saw this gross hair tie (complete with hair from it's owner) left in the bathroom! It definitely makes you worry about the cleanliness of the rooms! The card reader on our door was a pain to use because it didn't register the car half of the time. The pool didn't have towels the two different days that we used it during our stay, we had to go to the front desk to get towels. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was edible.

We only stayed one night, but I liked our room. It was very roomy compared to the Hyatt Place rooms, which is where we usually stay. The front office personnel were courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast included an omelet bar that morning, which was great. Overall, we had a good experience.

The staff was very helpful, especially during breakfast. They have an omelette bar, which is different from other Hyatt hotels I have been to, and very nice. There is no laundry room, but they do have a fitness center and a pool.

First the good stuff. Great friendly staff and the hotel is easy in and out from highway 5. Good breakfast free in the morning and open till 9:30am to make it convenient for anyone to have a good but to get started on the day. The room is small and the way it is organized can give claustrophobic feeling. Walked in and found ear plugs and wondered why. The answer came soon enough in the way of a train track very close by. The double plied windows are of no use as you hear the train often enough. A light sleeper will have terrible time sleeping. The walls are so sheet thin that I woke up for the sound of next door shower. The bed is so soggy, had tough time sleeping in. This is the first ever Hyatt that I regret staying. Definitely not what I expected.

My wife and I have enjoyed this hotel for the past few years and I must say the staff is very nice and the beds are comfortable. However, things have changed and not for the better. There used to be an evening happy hour with wine and food, that's gone. The breakfast selection is dwindling, the last 2 times we visited the spa was not working,and there were metal parts on the gas grills which were rusted through. There was trash in the parking lot, an aluminum can on top of the hedges all three partial days we were there, broken concrete parking bumpers stacked in a pile, there were large chunks out of both arms of our desk chair, a broken chunk out of the bathroom door frame, the toilet flushed occasionally and the stairway carpets could have used a good cleaning. It's like Motel Six at Hyatt prices. We won't be back, sorry to say.

I didn't expect that much but Hyatt was wonderful and peaceful place. All of people who work there are soo nice and kind. Room was so clean and quiet. Free breakfast was good and satisfied. I'll stay there again for sure when I visit Carlsbad.

Staying here for 4 nights. One night down and we are loving it. Beds are comfy, different pillow options, kitchenettes, etc... The breakfast is awesome. A bar for the adults. The staff are very helpful and kind. Pool isn't as cold as most pools. Very relaxing and fun stay for a 3,4,5, and 15 year old with 6 adults. We're all loving it.

Perfect for biz trips! Outstanding customer service (forgot my razor and the lady at the lobby provided me with a free shaving kit). Nice building. Great location close to everything. Breakfast is solid: your typical scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, yogurt, and related. Rooms are big and beds are comfortable. Great value overall!

This place is amazing. I flew in from jersey for a wedding, arrived on Friday. Pool was open, food and drinks were available. As soon as I checked in, I was made welcome. I ordered some food, was sent up to my clean room and was called when my food was ready. I ate and had a beer, took a nap and came down at what would have been 11 eastern time. I could still eat. They accidentally put meat in my meal and looks like I got no bar bill that night! Next day was even better. Got dressed for the wedding and stopped down for a bite and a drink. They shuttled two people... (two! )To the wedding. When I got there, realized my gift was on the bar. Figured that was long gone. The hotel manager saw it, personally found me and delivered the gift. The service is amazing. I highly recommend!

Nice hotel. Could have a better pool for the area. Breakfast buffet is the same every day so it gets boring if you're staying multiple days. Other then that it was a nice hotel.

Great for staying closes to Legoland the room was perfect. Slept 4 adults and 2 kids comfortably. Wish there had been an indoor pool or at least hot tub. Breakfast was great. Clean, easy to find, friendly staff. Overall great stay.

Enjoyed overall. Service was fine and the rooms were nice. Breakfast is pretty good and there is free parking. It is a short drive to legoland. Would definitely stay again but for what it's worth would also prefer staying in the grand Pacific palisades if the option was there and cost efficient.

Kids free hotel! Heaven on earth!!! Rooms are modern, not super spacious but they made the most out of the space. Rooms come with convection microwave so you can do a small roast or get your cooking on. In-n-Out is about 13 min walk from the hotel. If you can’t find nothing to eat, it not a bad option!!! Breakfast hours [email protected]:30am during the week, so make sure you don’t miss it!

The Lilac fire forced us to evacuate. With pets. Considering our options, the Hyatt house proved to be a great choice. Location is great, being pet friendly helped tremendously, the room was accommodating and spacious. Plus we had almost a fully stocked kitchen. It wasn't a vacation and we were glad to have a mini apartment. Their morning breakfast was the highlight. It rivals the likes of Dennys. And it's FREE. Great service, nice staff, and the bar even had nightly food specials. Overall we were very pleased with the price of the room, free parking, free high-end breakfast, and more. Yeah there's room for improvement but in a pinch Hyatt House pulled thru.

Great for business travel with the kitchenette and daily breakfast with fresh omelettes. Just 2 blocks from the beach and great running or walking along the bluffs overlooking the beach. Easy access to 5 and very close to the outlets and Lego Land. Perfectly situated and very friendly staff! Loved having the small bar for a quick glass of wine at the end of the day.

Overall I was happy with our stay, the location is great close to Legoland and plenty of options for food close by. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a one bedroom suite that was spacious and worked well. Unfortunately we could hear every step loudly from the room above us, constantly running back and forth. The room was clean to look at, but older and had a must kinda fishy smell that lasted the entire stay. Overall it was affordable, great location for us, and a nice complimentary breakfast.

I have stayed in this hotel several times. The hotel and staff are great...for the most part. Cons: Hotel is pet friendly so the rooms have an underlying pet smell no matter which room you are in. The staff is unknowingly biased towards the opposite sex. An older woman often favors and does special things for nice young looking men and a few older gentleman do the same for pretty ladies. It seems harmless but watching men get overlooked for service or women get snubbed at breakfast was uncomfortable. Pros: Location is great! Hotel is clean. Front Desk Asst Mgr is super friendly and helpful. They are pet friendly (yes pro and con...I brought my fur babies, I just didn't want to smell the others!)

Room is clean and big, linens are well prepared, breakfast is hot, including cooked-to-order omulet, from savory to sweet. The only downside I can tell is the room key. My keys didn't work till I gwt back to the reception for three times. I think they need to replace the entire magnetic key system.

VERY nice staff. However, room was extremely smelly...like old moldy wet towels. Could not get rid of the smell....bought a candle and opened window. It's in the walls....just old hotel. Room 127. Coffee maker was broke, had to request new one and they brought it within 5 minutes, much appreciated! The room keys barely work.....took 3 or 4 minutes of trying over and over. It just is what it is, no use trying to get new keys. So that was frustrating.

Nice lady checked us in very quickly. Our keys didnt work the lock so had to go down to get new ones. Same rep said it must have been my fault because I must have put them next to a magnet. Okay? Room was big but could have been cleaner. Couch had stains on it and the throw pillows were dirty and stained as well. The tub was leaking and must have been for a while as the tub was flaking and peeling around the drain...gross. Bed was super comfy and had a great night sleep. They provided several options for Breakfast and the waffles and sausage I had were good. Checkout was quick and easy. For the price it wasnt bad, but ultimately the cleanlyness of the bathroom makes me give 3 stars.

The room was smaller than expected based on the description of the room. But the room itself was great. Breakfast was a good assortment of options from the classic scrambled eggs and ham to waffles. The coffee wasn't my favorite but if you're not particular, its alright. Overall, great experience.

This is definitely not your typical Hyatt experience.. feels more along the lines of Best Western type hotel. I've had issues here [ie poor internet connection, thin floors leading to noise.. etc] but the staff always tried hard to fix the problem. They just don't have a Hyatt quality level property to work with.

This hotel was excellent! Our room was just the perfect size. Hyatt has thought of everything to make guests' stay as stress free as possible. The WiFi was excellent and the kitchen had everything we needed. The staff was outstanding from the front desk to the cleaning crew. Everyone was accommodating, helpful and kind. The hotel's location is perfect. 5 minutes to the beach by car, 5 minutes to area supermarkets. The commute to San Diego was a breeze (about 30 minutes). Thank you Hyatt House Carlsbad team for helping us make our So Cal vacation one to remember!

The location is great! It's right off the freeway and minutes away from the beach, outlet mall and great restaurants. The rooms had a good layout. The room we went into had a nice cooking area. The furniture is of good tast and comfortable. Our kids were very well responded to as we sent them for more towels and pool ameneties. All in all a great place to stay for a night or for the week.

Requested a late check-in, which was fine. But when we arrived no one was at the front desk. I called and called with no answer, ended up waiting 15-20 mins before someone finally came back. The hostess then complained about another guest, not very professional. Other than that first experience, so far so good.

this is a beautiful hotel with fabulous amenities including a butler service but I have to say that things like wifi usage and the business center use age should be free to guests. I paid $10 plus .79c to use the computer to print out my boarding pass - I think at the rates they charge that's silly. Also a coffeemaker in room should be included.

Good sized rooms but for the price, I'd expect that. The buffet was "kidised" and we decided to go elsewhere as we didn't think it was sufficiently well monitored. Apart from that the staff were helpful and the place works reasonably well.

perfect for a family going to Lego Land. If you avoid the weekend you get way better prices. And the flower fields are really close by, they are worth seeing. It is just a short drive to the beach, and they have a free shuttle to and from Lego land. The breakfast buffett was decent. the pool was nice and it was very clean and quite.
