It is unfortunate that I can not give a better rating. This hotel is quite obviously under renovations (except for the lobby which is gorgeous) but I was so scared for my four year old to get on the elevators. The elevator near the front of the hotel lurched downward and my husband and I very seriously contemplated carrying all our luggage up the stairs instead. Dead bugs all in the corners of the walkways, rusty soffets and leaks everywhere, rooms are average motel fair. I will say the front desk staff were wonderful. We were originally in room 302. We left for the day to go to Legoland (of course) and when we returned the room smelled so strongly of smoke that it gave me a headache (both my husband and I are non-smokers). The front desk gal was kind enough to find us a different room on the same level (320). Room 302 had problems with hot water and the closet doors were faulty. However, the A/C was awesome a little loud but after a full day in an amusement park no one cared, we all slept fine. Room 320 had plumbing problems with the toilet but the water ran steaming hot. The problem with that room was more that it wasn't clean. There were hairs all over the place in the bathroom. My daughter likes to take baths but there was no way I was letting her tush hit the bottom of that bathtub (OMW Gross!). It was just a real shame. Now I know why it was only $70 a night (even with being right next to Legoland)!
Sorry, next time I book I will be going with a chain hotel down the road.
