Good for one night.

Posted Sep 14, 2016
Pros: The pool was very well kept; nice and clean.
Cons: The building had card-key access, but one of the doors could be pulled open with a little force.
Location: I was told that LEGOLAND was nearby; but I didn't go there. There are various shopping and eating places within walking distance (less than a mile).
For the price, it was OK. Received a meal discount at the restaurant attached to the hotel. The bathroom had an odor that could not be defined. I asked them to come clean the bathroom. If they came to clean it, they did not get rid of the odor. I bought some Lysol disinfectant spray and sprayed around the toilet, the shower curtain and the fridge area. I changed rooms the next morning because I believe what ever was in that room caused my sinuses to react. I was there for four days and would not recommend staying more than a day or two. The pool was very nice. The breakfast did not have any eggs or meat. Many of the TV programs listed in the on-TV schedule were not available. The printed schedule for Showtime was in the room but it was not one of the channels on the TV.

Good hotel near Legoland

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: Great price, good facilities and near Legoland
Cons: Staff could smile more
Location: Legoland and lots of restaurants
Lobby is excellent. Everything clean and in good condition. The carpet in the hall didn't smell bad as it was the last time. The room was also clean and the bathroom was very nice. This is not a luxury hotel, but you have everything you need for a short stay.

Convenient.

Posted Aug 18, 2016
Pros: Clean
Cons: For what we ended up having to pay plus a security deposit we could have stayed at the Hampton.
It was okay since all we wanted was a place to sleep and shower for one night.

Good location for price

Posted Aug 9, 2016
Hotel staff needs a lesson in customer service considering you are in a tourist hot spot. Nothing fancy here, but suites the needs for a family going to legoland

Affordable but uncomfortable.

Posted Aug 1, 2016
Pros: Location and price.
Cons: Memory foam mattress toppers.
Location: Very close to Legoland. Many dinning options nearby.
Beds are very firm. The walls are very thin. I did appreciate the tile floor in the pet friendly room, not sure if in all rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are in the process of renovating. Only a certain few of our rooms are tiled for our pet guests. The beds are new mattresses. I will look into offering a Memory Foam Topper; I thank you for the suggestion. We hope to see you again!

Close to Legoland

Posted Jul 29, 2016
We stayed in this hotel because it was the only one close to Legoland given the season. It was a very comfortable room. Very clean except for old stains. I asked for a non smoking room and I still got a smoking room. That would be the only negative. Otherwise, great visit!

Close to Lego land

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: 5 minute drive to Legoland
Cons: Stop being so cheap
Staff was pleasant,courteous & helpful. Only 3 issues with this hotel 1. the hallway was to dark not enough lighting. They appear to be saving costs using dimmed lights in the hallway. Makes the hallway look Creepy..as I and my husband were waiting for a pair of twins to Pop up and say "COME PLAY WITH US" (The Shinning) 2. Family of four gets only 3 full size towels. Even after getting extra Towels from the front desk Housekeeping would reduce the stock back down to 3 on a daily basis. This was annoying after a full day in the sun, having to go to the front desk and ask for towels to shower. 3. Lighting outside the "porch area" They have a super bright light outside that lights the outside up so brightly, it comes thru the curtains. We were waking up at 2 am thinking it was morning already due to the lights. Curtains could be a bit longer to cover the Gap. Over all I would be okay with staying here again.

Thank you for your review. We are trying to be more ECO-Friendly. However, I will take your concerns and suggestions to upper Management so we may be more cohesive in achieving both goals; being ECO-Friendly and guest accommodating. We hope you give us another chance.

It is an older hotel and it's condition matches that. It is serviceable for a short stay at a lower price. That pretty much sums it up.
