    It was a good hotel. We were only there to sleep, and then off on our next adventure. We didn't like that they did not have water bottle refill stations. Staff was great!

    Liked the staff - super friendly and helpful, the pool, and the breakfast - perfect for kids. The rooms are a little dark and tired but clean and comfortable. Wish there was a restaurant or room service onsite as I had kids and was not able to leave to grab food.

    Loved the pool and patio furniture. Proximity to legoland and shuttle was great. Ongoing renovations to the bedrooms will help boost the property.

    The staff member at check in was lovely, my kids were thrilled with the beach balls she gave them and used them in the great pool daily while we were there. Our room was large and clean, and the included breakfast had lots of options.

    Think again...

    Overflowing toilet, cockroaches, and not good food. On the good side: location and shuttle to Legoland were great.

    Honestly The Best Hotel I Have Stayed At, Period

    I rarely give a hotel top marks; there's always something to complain about. So when I say this is hotel is 10/10, believe it. The property is beautiful. Check in was smooth and the clerk was very friendly and helpful, plus they gave us a swag bag. The room was well laid out, had nice materials and style, everything worked and nothing appeared worn out. You got everything you need and nothing you don't - microwave, fridge, ~40" TV, split bathroom with sink separate. Breakfast was delicious, with waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, cereals, bagels and toast, yogurt, etc. Only wish they had bacon, and maybe a few more tables (as their massive breakfast room was almost packed). Grounds were well taken care of and well styled. Outdoor pool. Check out was also smooth, but best of all, they had a free shuttle to and from Legoland, even if you're not staying the next night. The shuttles were clean and comfortable. I was joking with my wife that they were really working for a 5 star review, because in the half dozen we have stayed at this week, not a single one come close to the same level of comfort, polish, and amenities, including a 4-star Hilton. If every hotel was replaced with this one, the world would be a wonderful place. Please, never change (except add bacon, do that). We will definitely stay here whenever we are visiting anywhere nearby.
