Nice hotel close to Legoland what I liked most of the hotel is that it has a private entrance to Legoland, you'll walk easy between the hotel and the Park... the price of the room is accessible, not exorbitant as the Legoland

Nice hotel but prefer closer to amenities Be aware they charge you $14 a day to park in their outdoor lot that surrounds the hotel. No other options around and the fee is not well disclosed - you will discover this when you check out.
