Signage to the resort is sparse, a nod to the mapquest age. Equally understated is the entrance/lobby, but after that its 'katy bar the door' as fun and lego characters abound at every turn. The room designers must be parents themselves to have thought of knee height peepholes, sinkstools in bathrooms and built-in nightlights. I never thought a place existed that could pry my kids attention off their ipad. Legoland hotel, where have u been all my (parental) life ?

Hello Ron O we are thrilled to know that you enjoyed so many of the details that went into the hotel rooms. The Hotel as well as the rest of the Resort was built with our younger guests in mind. We are all happy to know that you and your family had such a nice stay. We do hope that you will stay with us again very soon.

Warm regards,
Tamara Thomas | Product Excellence Managing Team

You don’t realize how little other hotels offer children until you’ve stayed at this place. A children’s toilet seat built in to the adult size. A wooden stool in the bathroom. A nightlight in the kids area. A detachable shower head for bath time. A peephole at a little kids height. A bathroom door that doesn’t lock and can’t smash little fingers. A high front door latch that kids can’t reach. A low light in the bathroom for tired eyes. This place is amazing. We brought our 2.5 and 5 year old for two nights. Little girl loved the dance party. Little boy loved the scavenger hunt. The bunk beds were a hit. Breakfast buffet was incredible. The entrance to the park is a few steps away from the hotel.

I will say the signage to the hotel is lacking. All the signs say “LEGOLAND.” This means the hotels AND the park. When you get to the parking entrance you think you are entering the park parking lot, but it is the same lot for all three- I think. Signage within the parking lot indicates “regular” parking and I’m not sure what that means.

Checkin is at 4, but our room wasn’t ready after 4. That was a bit of a problem after being in the car for 6 hours with 2 grouchy kids.

I would give this place 5 stars if it weren’t for their cancellation policy. It is 100% non refundable unless you pay a $25 fee at the time of your reservation. But that only gets you to 5 days prior to your reservation. At over $400 a night, this is a lot of money to lose if you need to cancel, even with advance notice. It appears they fill rooms quickly so I can’t imagine this is that big of a problem for them. Even Disney just takes a deposit for cancellations. We got travel insurance from a third party just in case.

Room Tip: The hallways are long with only one middle elevator. Stay in a busy area or prepare to do some walking every time you need something

It's wonderful to hear that you and your family enjoyed many of the amenities offered at our Hotel and the child-friendly aspects of the room as well! I do apologize for any confusion you may have experienced when coming into the parking lot at first. Both Hotel Guests and one-day visiting Guests enter from LEGOLAND Drive and then continue down their designated parking locations from there. The Hotels, both original and the Castle Hotel, have their own designated parking lots, with the remainder being for our single-day visiting Guests (dubbed "Regular Parking").

I am also sorry to hear that you room was not available immediately upon check-in and for your disappointment in the cancellation policy for the Hotel bookings. I have shared your feedback with our Hotel's Management Team to have these issues addressed and see where they can employ improvements. Thank you.

Legoland Hotel just can’t be beat when visiting Legoland.

We have stayed at the hotel twice, once in 2016 and once in 2018. The visit in 2016 was much better, but we would still give the place a 5 rating. When we stayed in 2018 their management seemed to have communication flaws, but the employees more than try to make up for it. For instance, when we called to say we had no Lego head ice bucket, they noted it on our room but did nothing about it until told in person. When you call for a luggage cart the message is not relayed to the guys until you go down and ask for it, etc. However, the employees are helpful and happy. They more than make up the difference.

Buffet breakfast is great and the location can’t be beat. Dance parties for kids, skits in the lobby, lego bricks at the pool, and Lego characters everywhere. Yes, there are a million kids but you probably are traveling with some too.

We arranged to meet our kids and grandkids for a few days of fun at Legoland and decided to stay here. There were 13 of us and we stayed in 4 rooms. We had 3 of the fully-themed adventure rooms and 1 regular adventure room (for grandma and grandpa). This place is amazing and clearly designed for the ultimate kids' experience.
What we loved:
The lobby has a large area filled with Legos for the kids to play while the adults get checked in.
The decor is amazing with clever themes.
The rooms are really cool with themed Lego figures, and other decor is nice detail.
The bath soap is made with a handle for kids. How cool is that!
There is a locked treasure box in the room. You must find clues within the hotel to get the combination to open the safe. There were different prizes each day of our stay.
A kids section in the room with bunk beds and their own TV.
Nightly entertainment for the kids.
A great buffet breakfast at Bricks restaurant and early park entry.
A dance studio with live DJ for the kids to burn that last bit of evening energy.
The whoopee cushion just outside the elevators on the first floor.
The elevators (you have to experience them to appreciate them)!
The staff. Very friendly and helpful. Clearly trained to be fun and responsive to the kids.
The only thing to improve is signage to the hotel when entering the parking lot. It's a long route around the parking lot to get to the hotel, but the only signage was for the Castle hotel and General Parking. Nothing for the Legoland Hotel and the gate attendant didn't give us any instructions. 3 of our 4 vehicles ended up going in the wrong direction when they first arrived.
Overall, it was a great stay and the kids loved it almost as much as the theme park. Highly recommended.
