While the Hyatt house San Diego/Carlsbad lacks a view of the ocean and is tucked away just off the highway, the property is a great option for families visiting the area and its attractions. Plus, it’s an all-suite and budget-friendly property.
Besides offering all-suite accommodations, the hotel is pet- and kid-friendly and offers guests free Wi-Fi, breakfast and evening socials. Just two blocks from the beach and minutes from LEGOLAND California, the hotel’s highway location also makes it easy to travel south 30 minutes to San Diego and its attractions, or 45 minutes north to Orange County and Disneyland Resort. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the local attractions, as well. Forget the call of the beachfront properties and stay here when visiting Carlsbad; you’ll have more room to spread out and you can still walk to the beach!

The Art of Smart Timing
