This was a nice property. Check in was very quick and our room was ready upon arrival. The staff was very friendly. They offer a nice breakfast in the morning. It was conveniently located near Legoland.

Location is great and staff is awesome. I would definitely stay here again for a family trip. Family enjoyed every minute of it. We are breakfast every morning at the hotel and it was good. Saved us quite a bit of money. I will stay here for business trips in the future too.

We stayed here for a short getaway - celebrating our wedding anniversary and one of our kid's birthdays at Legoland. The hotel is generally in good condition and fairly modern. Our room was decent. There is a lot in a small space. We enjoyed having the kitchen, the pull out couch bed (uncomfortable, however), a separate room (very tight with... More

I stayed at this hotel during the last week of May. I managed to get last minute tickets to Legoland, and this hotel is perfectly situated a few minutes away. My first floor room faced the pool, and even with kids enjoying the outside area, you could barely hear them. The breakfast was pleasantly stocked, and very filling. I would... More

A clean, quite spot. Nothing exceptional, but certainly delivered on my expectations. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Since there was only one person working the desk when I checked-in, it took about 15-20 minutes because there were 2 other guests who had concierge questions.

I have always been a big fan of Residence Inn's and this property was no different. It's located in a business park setting. Kind of off the beaten path and away from a lot of busy hotel sites. It is closely located to Legoland and the outlets. The hotel was spotless. We stayed in a 2 room suite. The was... More

The staff was very accommodating, very friendly, and the complimentary hot breakfast is definitely a plus! Michael at the front desk was very helpful and went out of his way to help us when my husband thought he lost his wedding ring.
