Okay 5,1
Pros: Separate kids space
Cons: Not much to do after park closes and not many extra amenities
Excellent 8,8
Pros: Almost everything was great. The staff was friendly, the hotel is geared towards families with children and there are many unique experiences. From the complementary buffet to the evening dance party, Legoland Hotel is the perfect way to experience Legoland.
Cons: The hotel is a little bit on the expensive side.
Excellent 9,2
Pros: Walking into the LEGOLAND California Resort and Castle Hotel made me feel like a child again. I loved all the Lego creations throughout the hotel and those in the room itself were magical. The kids' bedroom with the Lego building area was perfect and the treasure hunt such a great way to explore the hotel. Travelling with a 12 year old who is Lego obsessed, this place was definitely a hit!
Cons: It is so difficult to get to the hotel without your own vehicle. We didn't have a car and trying to get from Universal Studios to LEGOLAND California Resort and Castle Hotel was a nightmare. We ended up hiring a shuttle which cost an absolute fortune. The cost of the hotel was also very high, so this is a once in a lifetime stay at the hotel for us.

Mediocre 2,0
Pros: Location
Excellent 8,5
Pros: Good location, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The free breakfast was very good.
Cons: Since there isn’t a full service restaurant, there aren’t any restaurants close by (if you are new to the area). It’s really just located around other hotels. There are no facilities for charging an electric vehicle. There is an outdoor outlet, but it’s located right next to a handicapped parking space. That’s a deal-breaker for us, so we won’t stay there again. There are hotels nearby that do have those stations so they really need to upgrade.

Excellent 8,3
Pros: Located near legoland. That was our destination for this trip.
Cons: Key issued had many time failure. I had to ask staff to come open the gates for me. Staff are friendly and helpful. But room keys should not fail as such to the point I was locked outside in the cold
Good 7,0
Pros: Although i did not care for the food choices, there was a lot of food, even near the end of the breakfast time.
Cons: The breakfast was terrible. We were there for three days but i only went once. The selections were mostly carbs. The building was more like a rustic camp than a decent hotel. Different tables would help -- there were long commercial ugly tables. To get hot tea i had to find a server and ask for hot water. She had to take my cup into the back room to get it. For a relaxing weekend, the ending time for breakfast was too early!
Excellent 10,0
Pros: The best is the location and my kids love the pool amazing Experience
Cons: Breakfast
Okay 5,0
Pros: Staff helpful
Cons: No decaf coffee or tea in room. Door to room was terrible. Light and noise way beyond what was acceptable because there was large space between door and door jamb. Should not be able to see light all around door. (See below... there was okay motel, no resort!)

Pros: American breakfast with juices and coffee however was good to taste.
Cons: Nice clean rooms and good atmosphere.

Excellent 10,0

Excellent 8,0
Pros: Great location, very good staff, great parking.

Excellent 9,2
Pros: Breakfast was insanely good. Rooms were clean. I had the side by the freeway, couldn't hear it with the window closed. Bathrooms were nicely updated and clean

Pros: Complementy Breakfast
Okay 5,0
Pros: The shower was powerful and good
Cons: Shabby, dirty carpets, cobwebs, marks on walls, furniture all banged up. Very worn out furniture and linens. I knew i should have stayed at elsewhere.
Good 6,3
Pros: Great pillows. The pancake maker.
Cons: The bitter coffee. Ran out of coffee. Musty smell. Slow elevator with out of date license. Side gate near pool always unlocked.
Good 7,9
Pros: The breakfast offering varied each day but in general was as expected from a hotel buffet. Nothing fancy but a good selection to satisfy most palates.
Cons: The Beni Hana across the parking lot! Food quality, not so great... However, regarding the Holiday Inn Express, breakfast time was popular and got quite busy on the weekend days. This isn't necessarily a negative as overflow seating was adequately provided (in an unused conference room)
Excellent 8,3
Pros: Great Breakfast and location
Cons: Carpet dirty in hallways and bathroom faucet and counter not clean. Room not cleaned after first night.

Pros: The location

Excellent 10,0
Pros: location
Cons: air conditioner/heater was loud and ran the whole time
Good 7,7
Pros: The hotel itself was great
Cons: We had to have had the worst room in the entire room. Paper thin walls, super noisy, fresh paint smell, right next to the entrance of the hotel so no privacy from the outside patio. Super disappointed with our room.
Excellent 10,0
Cons: They were trying multiple times to sell timeshares. We did not come on vacation to be sold timeshares at the hotel we were staying at. They called the room twice and then attempted a sale when picking up pool keys.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Location relative to Legoland is fantastic. Loved the free shuttle to take you nearby places, like the local grocery store to buy snacks and breakfast foods for your room. Loved the family pool and splash pad area therein. Fantastic hotel!
Cons: Pool deck very slippery when wet, even when slowly walking. Likely accident waiting to happen.
Excellent 9,6
Pros: I liked everything I wish I would’ve stayed longer .
Excellent 10,0
Pros: I enjoyed the friendly staff provided us with instructions to get to our room with ease. The pool was fantastic kid friendly rooms were clean. It was close to many shopping areas and restaurants also close to Legoland within walking distance.
Cons: There wasnt anything bad about the place. Theres construction going on but that didnt bother our stay.
Mediocre 3,0
Cons: Not told major construction going on. Noise no access to areas
Excellent 10,0
Pros: The kids pool and hotel employee that was in charge of kids activities went above and beyond making he kids stay fun.
Excellent 8,3
Pros: The view to the ocean and watching the sunset is beautiful from this property. The adult pool area is extremely inviting and relaxing. The garden grounds are lovely and the clean, spacious room had everything I needed.
Cons: Current construction on the front of the property made it impossible to drive up & unload luggage. The underground parking is a maze (they should supply a map just for that!), and it took me over a half hour just to locate the closest elevator to my room, then to work my way from underground with my luggage through various hallways to get there, when in reality my room was just adjacent to the unusable front circle entry. This was a real inconvenience and hassle. The construction was rather noisy and I was surprised to see/hear it continue into Saturday as well.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: The location was fantastic, what a treat to find a boardwalk with an ocean view. The construction was a surprise but the hotel was quiet, clean and with fantastic amenities in the room. I wish I had planned to take advantage of their pool. Gorgeous!!
Cons: Since there was so much construction the lack of signage made getting around a bit confusing. And our room view was of the front entry-a bit of a bummer.

Excellent 8,3
Pros: Location of the hotel. Its in a very quiet location and close to shopping. Parking is good. Room is clean, bed is good, but since we are in the first floor, you can hear some noise on the upper floor.
Cons: Ice machine on the first floor is not working so you need to go up to the third floor to get ice. A sign would be nice to let other customers know that it's not working and an alternative way to go to the third floor. A free breakfast would be nice!
