We spent two nights at West Inn and Suites with our 2 boys (2 and 8). There was a mix of business people and families. We were visiting to see Legoland. This was a great experience. It was our third trip to Legoland and the first time in this hotel. We will definitely be going back. We stayed in a... More

Booked the hotel because of a visit to Legoland. I would not say the hotel is what I think of when I think kid "friendly". I would expect a larger, more exciting pool- or something fun in the hotel for them. Small pool and nothing exciting about it. limited spots as well. Don't go for the pool. The gym is... More

We spent three nights at the West Inn & Suites and were greatly impressed by everything about the hotel. Before we even arrived, the hotel was emailing with us to confirm a rollaway for our room. They also called the day before our arrival to see if there was anything else we needed prior to our stay. Once we arrived,... More

Trip Advisor helped us find this gem. We were getting away w/o kids/grandkids for the first time. I shared that with the hotel in an email, asking for a quiet room on the top floor. We were greeted with champagne on ice and chocolates upon our arrival. WOW what a start to this perfect getaway. Add to that the incredibly... More

Stayed here for my wife's milestone birthday celebration with kids and immediate family. Staff was professional and very friendly! Always fulfilled our needs. Free shuttle to anywhere within 5mi radius of hotel was always on time for pickup and return! They also provided complimentary crib and pack and play for our room, and baby car seats for infants and toddlers... More

My family and I stayed in a double King suite for one night while visiting Legoland and we LOVED it. The hotel is smaller and the grounds are very well manicured. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the time we arrived. The hotel is really clean and we loved our room. We're a family of 4, with 5... More

My 3 sisters and I booked a double king bed suite for our annual summer birthday celebration. We were delightfully surprised with the friendly, competent staff at check in. The hotel was nicely decorated with real orchid arrangements. The rooms were clean and the beds super comfortable. We enjoyed the free 'perks' such as the parking, breakfast, reading room, pool...
