Perfect hotel for my family
Beautiful hotel. I planned a trip to Legoland with family. Family suite was the best. Very roomy. Comfortable. We walked to legoland 7 min walk. So convenient. I did a one night stay. The only complaint is check in was very late. 5pm. I did not like that at all. They said they were gonna call me to get me in early . NO CALL!!! and instead i called an hour before check in. Other then that. I would come again. And definitely stay here to come to legoland. The ladies at the counter were sweet. Thank you fir making me feel comfortable. The guy at the counter seemed rude and just waited for me to speak instead of greeting me. He needs hospitality manners.

Clean and nice rooms, minor areas for improvement
Rooms were super nice, clean, and updated. Pleasantly surprised at how stocked the kitchens were with supplies. Minor, but there was no body lotion provided, although soap, shampoo, and conditioner were. The hotel is going through some renovations which they are very upfront about and clear with what to expect. Activity coordinator was super energetic and nice. Front desk staff wasn't fully informed on amenities or process like if food could be delivered to the pool from the hotel restaurant, if there was a shower in the pool bathroom, etc. Water splash pad was GREAT for our 7 and 5 year old kids.
