"Very spacious and clean."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Front desk was very helpful and checked us in within five minutes of arriving. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Thermostat didn't work in our room so it was toasty but we only spent one night so really didn't need to complain, etc.

"Clean, comfortable and family friendly."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel is a great deal for the price. We stayed due to the proximity to legoland. The shuttle experience was simple and efficient. The hotel itself was a bit older but clean and well maintained. The breakfast was good and the pool was heated. And they had a pack n play for the baby. Nice stay! I'd definitely stay again.
