Average hotel with easy access to LegoLandI expected a little more from a hotel named "resort" but it looks pretty old both inside and out. The door and window seemed loosely fitted with the amount of light and noise they let in. There was also a faint smell of urine in the bathroom. However it was clean and comfortable and the shuttle to ...

Conflicting check-in time with hotel vs expediaI booked my stay via Expedia. I screenshot my confirmation and it stated check-in at 3pm. When I inquired at the front guest, they told me and showed me the hotel check-in time at 4pm. So confusing. I'm surprised nobody catch the different advertised check-in hours.

Legoland's closest hotelThis hotel was filled with families on their way to Legoland. Despite that, the hotel staff tried to find us a room where we would be buffered from all the noise and the crying. This hotel isn't one of Hampton's newest ones, and has seen some wear from all the families coming to go to Legoland, but ...
