7.0 Good
Pros: Large comfortable room for a great price. I also liked being able to park in the underground garage.
Cons: I was hoping they had a complimentary breakfast bar, similar to other hotels of the same price range. They did have a Bistro with food and drinks you could purchase. But if I was going to pay for breakfast I would rather go outside the hotel.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: close to the beach, big rooms, clean

Pros: The space is my suite was amazing. So many nice thoughtful touches and a big comfy bed. I could have stayed a week!

The Fish Market Restaurant adjacent to the property is an excellent dining experience. The units have efficient, fully equipped kitchenettes, comfortable beds and chairs and private patios or decks. Accommodations are a great value for the location. Would be an excellent choice for an extended stay.
Cons: Bathroom is cramped, which is a minor complaint. Being on the first floor means you have a lovely patio and easy pool access, but you can often hear and feel the movements of your upstairs neighbors and a metal security gate that clangs shut loudly outside your door as other guests use it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole experience was excellent. Kids had a great time
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good for kids And breakfast is delicious with lots of choices. But $--- for one night stay is not all worth with only just room themes.
Cons: 4 PM Check-in time is very late. it should be at least 2PM. Especially during winter. The moment we check-in it gets dark.
7.0 Good
Pros: Lego land staff was really helpful , understanding after the hell I went through with booking.com probably the worse customer service i dealt with.
Cons: Lego land hotel, no complaints. very convenient if you spending the day at the park. as for booking.com!!!! i booked the room in Canadian dollars and was charged in USD. There customer service manager didn't want to correct the mistake but offer me a 25 gift card which i refused to take. On there website it allows you to see the rates in the currency of your choice. After receiving the confirmation it still didn't state it was in USD besides the resort fee which is clearly outlined prior to booking. I only found out through lego land hotel that it was charged in USD. the second thing is i booked a room at there new hotel location and was given a room at the older hotel. great job BOOKING.COM , your crooks BEWARE Canadians, very difficult people to deal with.
7.0 Good
Pros: I love the separate kids bedroom space and all the little details. The knights room had a night light that illuminated constellations on the ceiling. The beds are super comfortable and everyone slept very well. The kids enjoyed the pool area, the lifeguards were always alert to the kids in the pool. Great selection at the breakfast buffet. The staff was helpful and friendly and did a really nice job of moving families through. The treasure chest surprises each day was a bonus for the kids however there are only 3 options and on day 4 they got the exact same keychain that they got the day before. The location was great. It is easy to go into San Diego, Sea World, or La Jolla for a day trip. And of course with a 2-day park hopper to Legoland it is the perfect place to stay..
Cons: They only have basic TV/cable. After a long day of play would've loved to cuddle on the bed with the whole family and watch a Lego movie. Tried to use our mobile hotspot with the smart TV but could only get audio. Also, when we showed up the master bedroom fitted sheet was dirty, multiple hairs on it and a couple dirty marks. We got in late and had to wait for the bed to be changed. There is outdoor entertainment but it's the same thing looped over and over. I was shocked there were so few Lego shows available since the Florida resort in 2017 had the Lego movie on 24/7 in the kids' room. It is expensive to stay and you get charged even more if you have to park a car overnight. Would be nice if the resort fee included the cost to park a car on site.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Just outside the park.
Cons: Didn’t had a good smell impression as we got out of the elevator to go the room. The smell reminds us of hospital or a nursing home. Not good!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything it was amazing
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were kind. My son loved trading mini figures with the staff around the hotel and the housekeeping staff did a lovely job keeping the place clean. The location was perfect near LegoLand.
Cons: I got sick from the breakfast banquet 2 out of 3 mornings. While the chef was kind and explained what was safe with my allergies. Unfortunately, the rest of the kitchen staff seemed to have issues accommodating allergies. They seemed annoyed by it.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was big and facility was clean.
Cons: Front desk or receptionist wasn’t available when needed.
5.8 Okay
Pros: I would say the distance to Legoland- walking distance and available shuttles. Quiet area. The pool area and Restaurant facing the pool was the best part of our stay at this hotel.
Cons: First when we arrived they gave us a room on the first floor with the parking view. we had to go to the room to find out that it is not what we expected and paid for as a deluxe room which as they described has a coastal view. After we went down to let them know, the manager in charge showed us so much attitude and kept arguing instead of trying to change our room to what we paid for. 2- the air conditioner/ heater wasn't working and we froze the first night putting it on 76 degrees when it felt like 66. They had to ask Engineers to come check it the next morning. 3- The toilet clogged up the first day and they had to ask their maintenance to come fix it. 4- The beds were so saggy that you would wake up with backache every morning. 5. The blankets were not cotton and breathable, so you would feel so hot under them, but so cold if you didn't use them due to broken air conditioner. 6- We had to wait 25 min to get a table for breakfast and we had to ask the waitress for spoon, sugar, etc etc.
4.0 Okay
