“Location is Convenient and Huge Pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This hotel would be a 2 star at best without the pool and the location. We were going to Legoland and it is less than 5 minutes from the hotel. They should offer a shuttle but they dont so we have to pay $14 a day to park because it was too hot to walk. The outdoor pool was huge and pretty clean. That is where the good ends. The bathroom was not clean. My son found a toaster strudel icing under our bed. I told him just not to look under there anymore. The beds seemed cleaned but who knows. The tv is about 30 years old and was fuzzy the whole time. The continental breakfast was pretty standard and they have a pool side bar and restaurant but it was not open when we were there. The hotel is under construction so I hope it gets better. Especially because Legoland is opening their own hotel next summer.

I booked this hotel because we were going to Legoland and it was close and some reviews were pretty good. It is gross!!!! Everything seems old and dirty, the locks on the door are broken, the bathroom is so small you can barely shut the door, the rugs probably haven't been cleaned in forever. Need lots of work to fix this place up, would never ever come back here!!!

I purchased this stay at a discount at a great rate because it was the closest to Legoland,Fl and the accomodations were average. The first room we checked in the code keys did not work and the room had to be changed but the staff did fix the problem immediately. The rooms were small and needed to be updated and the breakfast needed to be improved. The only things offered were juices,cereals,fruit,and waffles. Overall not bad for the money spent. Wifi worked great.

Room Tip: The hotel has a strange parking lot but overall the rooms on the bottom floor were very quiet.

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend and all I have to say is that this has been a horrible experience. The mildew in the shower is DISGUSTING, and it seems that the carpet in the room hasn't been cleaned in ages.

The hotel is currently being remodeled and I understand that they might be construction workers around during the day but from that to have a floor full of dust 24/7 and debris every where is simply NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Our kids wanted to go to the gameroom (The Kids Zone) and couldn't even be there for more than 5 minutes because of all the dust and debris.

Please DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!

So this past weekend my family and I spent the night in the Magnuson Grand on a visit to LegoLand. The hotel itself seems like a very old structure that they are attempting to update here and there. It's a good value for being so close to the park and I feel as they continue to upgrade this hotel it will only get better and better. My only complaints were minimal as the ac in our room wasn't working that well, the amenities they list are not all functional as the fitness center is a room full of broken equipment and their is no bar or restaurant that we could find. However, despite that I definitely feel like we would stay here again and from the other reviews I've read choose a room in the tower vs the main building as it seems those are better options with more options such as a refrigerator.

Low ceilings. This must have been a nice hotel in the 1970's. Furnishings look like they have not been updated since then. Cleanliness leaves much to be desired. But you should not expect much when you pay less than 100$/ day in Florida. One good point, the reception ladies were very friendly.

The tower rooms are clean and large. The fridge and microwave were handy. I like the proximity to LEGOLAND. The pool is huge, like the old time hotels. The elevators are a bit slow, but we'll go back.
