Need more attention, more personnel to clean common areas.

No refrigerator, no microwave, water dripping from ceiling. In room.

Refused to stay on property. First room was filled with bugs. Second room had less bugs but many in the curtain. I understand the area was having an outbreak but it was unacceptable in both rooms. Front desk staff was nice about the situation and honored the request to cancel the booking. Will not recommend at all.

Nice place to stay for the money , close to Legoland

Yes it's an older motel, but it's kept up nicely. the staff was really really friendly (I mean everyone from the front desk people to the cleaning staff and the restaurant employees too). The Location is a real winner with it being so close to Legoland. Also that included breakfast is really amazing (it's a REAL breakfast !). It saved my family time and money everyday we were there. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Overall I'd say it's a bit of a dated older motel, but for the price, you'll never find a better value anywhere. We enjoyed our stay and will plan on using this motel again on return visits !

It’s a dump. After spending a evening I smell like an ashtray and I don’t smoke. There was a smooshed roach on the floor. Worst place I’ve been in a long time.

**Previous reviews almost deterred us from staying! Very glad we didn't listen and stayed!** We booked this hotel because our trip was based around going to Legoland. Legoland is literally right behind it. If staying on backside of hotel you can see the tops of some rides. We walked to Legoland took us under 10 minutes. Hotel is in a safe and quiet area. The hustle and bustle per say like Orlando is way off from this location. It seemed the whole area closed at 9. The staff and security guard were extremely friendly and professional. The price was excellent for what we received and what we stayed for. Could the hotel use some upgrades, yes. If the price per night was high I would expect it. We payed 58.00 a night. Far far less than any other hotel close to the area we looked for. This was our first time to Legoland and this particular hotel was an excellent choice for us. Note also we rarely stay in hotels as we usually rent private homes on our out of town vacations. If you're going to Legoland and want the closeness to the park but do not want the price tag or crowd stay here.

WHEN I GOT THERE THE RESERVATION RATE WAS NOT HONORED AND I HAD TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL FEE. THE ELEVATOR BY MY ROOM WAS BROKEN SO I HAD TO CLIMB 3 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS , WHICH THE STAIRS ARE RUSTED AND BROKEN AND VERY SCARE TO CLIMB ESPECIALLY IN THE RAIN ON ONE DAY. OUR ROOM ONLY HAD 2 WORKING OUTLETS. THE TV REMOTE ONLY WORKED IF YOU PUT IN THE CHANNEL YOU COULD NOT SURF TO FIND SOMETHING. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE UNLESS THERE IS NOTHING ELSE AVAILABLE IN THE AREA. YES IT IS CONVENIENT FOR LEGOLAND BUT NOT WORTH IT

Vomit on room chair. Hair in shower. Trash not empty. Didn’t get clean towels. Complained 7 times between the 3 rooms we had. Leaking faucet (bad).

There was a fresh butt stain on the sheets from a previous guest, holes in the curtains from moths or something and the shower curtain was broken. We love to go on trips and most hotels are ok, but this one has been the worst so far. Also they charge a $30 a night pet fee that we couldn’t find any mention of on their website or orbitz. We told the manager and they insisted we still pay. Considering we arrived at the hotel at 1am we didn’t really have the option to go anywhere else.

From the look of the lobby and the friendly personality of the front desk clerk and security guard I thought I was at a pretty decent place. Wrong!! Heat didn’t work. Bugs in the room. Water was barely lukewarm. If I planned on staying more than just a few hours I would have demanded a refund. I am not the complaining/nitpicking type but this hotel brought it out of me. I would never stay here again.

We checked in late after a full day at legoland. the lobby is beautiful, it gave off the feeling of great expectations for the rooms. Wrong. The rooms are super outdated and in need of some serious remodel. Im not a picky person when it comes to hotel cleanliness, but they need some help. The check in was easy, but they forgot to mention the breakfast needs a voucher in order to get a free meal. I paid full price, because no one told me at check in. Then i left my info with the front desk and I was told they would contact me about the breakfast issue, Never Heard form Them. It fit the purpose for the night. Would not stay extended amount of time.

Very dirty bathrooms. Out dated fixtures. Room over all was very dirty like the only thing cleaned and changed was the sheets.

The room was dirty when we arrived . There was dead roaches in the bathroom. The microwave didn't work and the only way to turn off the tv was to unplug it, otherwise it would stay on. Only good thing about the hotel is it was walking distance to legoland. The pool was dirty as well. Horrible hotel!

Miserable stay. AC barely dehumidified air. Shower rod broken allowing water to spill on floor. Never replenished in-room cups and coffee. Bedding barely stayed in place on bed. Floors felt very dirty. Critters in bathroom. Tub is elevated 6"-8" above level of floor making it very uncomfortable exiting the tub - not recommended for short, or older, or peoplr unsteady on their legs. Need I say more? It needs to be completely renovated.

Check-in was easy and we were given a description about the layout of the building and where to park, etc. First the key did not open the door - there was a trick that another guest had to show me just to enter the hotel. Then a big inconvenience was the elevator was out of service. Next, there was hoodlums just hanging around outside their rooms and that made us feel uncomfortable. The room and beds were comfortable and just what we needed. The shower handle was stuck and extra force was needed to turn it on. My wife could not turn it on.
