Finely polished resort with modern and beautiful grounds. We stayed here for three days visiting Legoland and were completely satisfied. The proximity to not only Legoland ( 8 minute walk) but to also a nice variety of restaurants close by via car, makes this a great stay. Well done, I will be back.

Stayed here for a trip to Legoland and San Diego. Just a walk from the hotel to Legoland. Beautiful grounds and rooms! Reasonable prices. Staff was excellent and attentive. Would definitely stay here again on another trip! It was so worth it!!!

We stayed here in August 2012 and booked it based on close proximity to Lego Land. Very upscale resort. The room, the property and that staff were all near perfect. Food was outstanding and the bar had unique original drinks I completely enjoyed. (Maple bacon bourbon!!) Nothing but high praise!!

We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel. It was definitely first class. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was wonderful. Since we will have to return to the area, we know exactly where we will be staying. Thank you Sheraton.

So you've decided to take the little ones to LEGOLAND? Well, stay here- not the LEGOLAND Hotel. Why? A better hotel- nice amenities, clean, modern - and you don't have to see Legos every time you turn around. You'll see plenty of those at the park. The Sheraton also has a nice off the lobby bar and restaurant called Twenty/20,... More

Easy afternoon checkin. Having spent the whole day at Legoland and being drenched by the much-needed downpours, it was an added treat for my drenched husband and I to receive a card for two complimentary drinks at their bar. Small bar area and nice restaurant with new menu/new chef. Service was fast and food was tasty. Rooms are large, bed... More

I was expecting a mediocre property, but boy was I pleasantly surprised with this Sheraton! The grounds were beautiful, staff was beyond friendly and professional, room was very nice, comfortable bed and ocean view! They have a large pool and jacuzzi surrounded by palm trees. The bar was really nice. They made great drinks and they had blue cheese stuffed... More

Stayed just one night at the end of our vacation; we have 2 somewhat small kids that can share the hide-away bed so the 1 BR suite was perfect. Since we were only there for the one night, we didn't get a chance to use the pool, but it looked very nice. Room service was very good (after all day... More

The facility and the resort were excellent and it made the trip down all the better. We went to go to LEGOLAND and saw the resort online and decided to give it a shot. We couldn't have been happier. From the drive up, everything was great. All of the people at hotel were nice and friendly. The check in was... More

Much better value than the Legoland, great spacious clean rooms, you could actually see the ocean from our room. The grounds are very well-maintained. We were here for Thanksgiving, and although X-giving dinner at the hotel is pricey, it is worth every penny! The chef and the restaurant did a great job with full-blown Thanksgiving dinner and all the trimmings.... More
