Good Hotel

This was a good hotel for our family visit to Legoland. Originally, we chose this hotel for the free breakfast and shuttle however, both of these items were disappointing. The shuttle was unorganized and the two vans available could only transport up to six people at a time. For such a large hotel this was inadequate. We felt the $15 parking at Legoland was far more efficient for the money. Also, the breakfast was not great so we only visited the lanai once. Overall however, the rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. One last thing... The hotel room doors open to the outside so, if you don't care for this be aware because the photos don't depict this setup.

Family trip to Legoland

Staff was friendly, room was large (king room). We had a 6 year old share the bed with us and a 2 year old sleeping in a pack and play and had plenty of room. In room fridge was great! Internet was so slow it was useless, used a mobile hot spot instead. Our kids loved the pool, restaurant options close by and literally 5 minutes from legoland. Will stay here again!

Thank You!

From check in everything was awesome! The woman at the front desk was very nice and she was genuine in caring about our needs. The room was clean and very nice. We were disappointed in the eggs and sausage in the breakfast buffet but we had cereal, bagels and yogurt and were happy. It was quiet and very close to Legoland. If we do plan on going to the area again we will stay there. You cannot beat the location and price! Thank you!!

If you call Legoland at least a week in advance they can give you a better deal than any hotel or even their website. I called on the park hopper pass and save $10 on each ticket booking it online!!
