Not worth it for one night stay. Check in is so late and check out is so early you really can’t enjoy the place.

10/10 Exceptional

Great location within walking distance to Legoland. Also close to dining options and shopping outlets. There are plenty of activities for families with children and a separate pool for adults only. Our suite was fully stocked with the essentials and very clean. The bed was super comfortable which made for a peaceful night’s rest after a long day! We enjoyed our stay.
