Stayed here for 3 nights during spring break. The rooms were. Good size, clean and comfortable. The Sheraton pool was a great way to spend the afternoon and was pretty empty since everyone was at Legoland or neighboring attraction. Poolside lunch was good and 20/20 restaurant was great for breakfast. Walking distance, or free shuttle ride away, to Legoland. Staff... More

I didn't know what to expect with this hotel, as I don't normally stay at Sheratons. I was pleasantly surprised - the beds were very comfortable, I actually fell asleep unexpectedly my first evening here. The room was clean and tidy, the area was very nice and grounds were pretty and easy to walk around, although the ocean isn't as... More

This Sheraton is relatively new and I've stayed a few times over the last few years for business events in the area. I actually also stayed here with family the week they first opened. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the general staff and the restaurant servers. The food is great and the environment is fantastic. Set above... More

A great spot if visiting Legoland. Very nice Pool area and grounds. Rooms are nice but nothing special. Include a small refrigerator, but no microwave. Nice patio / balcony, but VERY poor patio furniture makes using it unlikely. Business Center is difficult to locate and no one could tell me exactly where it was. The restaurant is very nice, but...

A GREAT 4-Star hotel experience! $14 Resort fee includes wi-fi & bottled water we didn't take advantage of the pool or fitness centers or Legoland entrance. Perhaps due to all the negative posting about added $12 parking charges we were not charged for self parking. Parking was extremey convenient for our room ask for the Main Building. Very impressed with... More

The property is very well maintained and relaxing. The staff is professional, friendly and very accommodating. While it is near Legoland it is a nice resort also for professionals with clean, quiet rooms and excellent services. The 24 hour pool, jacuzzi and gym make for a terrific experience. GREAT location, staff and facilities!

The perfect spot for Legoland as you can walk over. Facility management seems under par but maybe it was just the coordination of events for the hundred Chopra guests that made things awkward as we would all descend on eating spots at once during breaks. I'd definitely stay here if bringing family to Legoland but otherwise I'd stay somewhere closer... More

We have been to this hotel twice in the past year while visiting Legoland. It is an ideal place for Legoland because it has its own access to Legoland through the parking lot. Our daughter loves that. We also like the relaxing vibe. The lobby smells delicious like all of the Sheraton hotels. I also like the flavored water in... More

This hotel is located on a hill overlooking the ocean. I couldn't say more positives about this hotel. My ONLY criticism is the hidden $12/day parking fee. Just add that into the cost...parking fees are for urban hotels. The pool was a nice little area to hang out. The views of the ocean or the golf course are great. The... More

Perfect location, stunning hotel, beautiful surroundings.. The staff is super friendly, rooms are spacious and love the fact that the Jacuzzi is open 24/7. Down side is you have to pay to self park @ $14 or a few bucks more is worth it to valet park. There is also a resort fee. Lots and Lots of kids as this... More
