Highly recommended
Clean and safe for a family visit to Legoland. Highly recommended. Carry cash to pay so you don't have to pay for the (completely fair and normally hidden) credit card surcharge.

You won’t be disappointed!
I am a hotel snob. I would have never looked at this hotel if not for traveling with my brother who had limited funds. I was so pleased! Owners were very friendly. Room was clean and had everything I needed. Beds were comfortable and area was quiet. Does it need updated? I would say yes if I was at all interested in the decor. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! Definitely a winner and I will stay there every time I make this trip!

4/10 Fair

It's a Budget Inn, Next time I'll pay more.
I most likely wouldn't write a review. But after reading all the great reviews about the Budget Inn and all the bad reviews of hotels very close to Lego Land that are around the same price I took a chance and traveled 15 extra minutes. I did not want to pay $270 to $600 just to pass out after a full day at the park. My experience, I like to inform you all the manager was very accommodating in making things better because the hotel was fully booked, I took a break from the park to get a room and key. The two rooms I was offered had such a chemical smell It left a terrible flavor on my palate. I was committed and I thought I had no choice. When I return to the hotel there were 8 -10 men on the second-floor pathway drinking alcohol and whistling at me and my 10-year-old child. I tried to get into the room as quickly so they wouldn't know the room I was in, guess what the key didn't work. I went to the office which is locked, like as if there was maybe bad things that happened. The manager came out of the locked door and said I have an other room I may like better. I told him I was concerned and uncomfortable about me men drinking and verbal gestures. The manager assured me that they we leaving to work over night and we will be safe. He was right they all got into a passger van a left as the manager was showing us the the room that had a smell but it was acceptable. At 5:45 am, there was an explosion of glass bottles outside my door, lucky not my new car. Next time I'll pay more.
