My second review after our 2nd stay at this hotel...Much Improved...I'm impressed with how this hotel improved so much 6 weeks after it's grand opening day! We were here for the first time when it first opened on April 5-7 during Spring Break (see my first review) and returned here for the second time for our son's 4th birthday on May 18-20! I only gave it 4 stars but it has a potential to be a 5 star hotel.
Check-in was a breeze this time...we got to the hotel at 1:30 pm...our family suite room was ready and we were able to check in early so that was great...we stayed in Adventure themed family suite on the 3rd floor room #3056 and we had a nice view of the hotel swimming pool...kinda cloudy day but we had a view of the ocean as well! We were inside the Legoland park 30 minutes later!
The family suite still didn't have much theming...but we opted for bigger space vs. extra theming in the room for the comfort of our kids so they have a place to sit and play...we had a sofa bed and an arm chair, a small dining table with 2 chairs...the room also came with a fridge hidden inside an office desk and another chair...we requested a microwave at check-in and when we returned to our room after spending time at Legoland park...the microwave was already installed...so that was nice! I forgot that the room didn't have an iron and ironing board and needed extra towels...I requested those and got them after 10 minutes...the manager wearing a suit and tie even brought them up to us himself...nice service!
We love that the hotel is very kid friendly...it was kinda empty being there on the weekend...play area was empty (which our kids loved because they had the whole place to themselves) when we checked in at 1:30 maybe because everyone was at the park already...still love that the hotel is literally steps away from the Legoland gate...you just walk to the hotel and you're in the room in no time to rest your tired feet from all the walking at the park...very convenient for the kids and kids at heart...need the back hotel entrance open for hotel guests though so we don't have to go around the front entrance to go back to the hotel from the park! We love the disco elevator...now that we were on the 3rd floor! We were on the 1st floor last time but we still rode the elevator and danced every time the 70's music came on! Our kids had fun stumping on a Whoopi cushion floor near the elevator...fun hotel for the kids!
Last time I complained about the check-out process but not a problem this time...we just left the key cards in our room but kept one for souvenir and called the front desk and they were able to check us out via phone we even had the hotel receipt waiting outside our room when we stepped out...the only problem with that is privacy...anyone can pick up that receipt and it had our info on it...I would rather have my receipt emailed to us instead!
Thank you LegoLand hotel for improving so much in just a few short weeks...our kids love this hotel...for the parents we just want the microwave, iron and ironing board available amenities in the family suite...you have plenty of room for them in there! Our 4 year old had a great birthday celebration...kids still complained about the pool water being cold so please do something about this...over all it was a nice comfortable stay at your hotel...we will try to come back for our 3rd stay to check out your Pirate themed family suite when our 4 year old is a lot older...he's kinda scared of the pirate's skulls and bones theme at this time. This hotel is our kids favorite hotel...ages 4, 10 and our very kid at heart 14 year old...he still loves building Legos with his little brothers!
