Since I'm in the hospitality business, or even if i wasn't, i believe in going to management if there is something wrong - which I did. I wrote a detailed letter. I think it was given a casual glance. The good things about the "resort" are the helpful valets, the 20/20 restaurant; and the linens are nice. This was the... More

I could not afford the Legoland Hotel. The Sheraton was a more than welcome alternative. We stayed here two nights for less than one night at the Legoland Hotel. Very clean and nice. GREAT pool. And did I mention that you have free parking and a back entrance to Legoland? These things make it a no brainer. You enter Legoland... More

We have stayed at this property once before and loved how close it is to Legoland, but our second time around our daughter got sick after we made our hotel reservations, not allowing us to make the four hour drive from Vegas to the hotel. I attempted to call the hotel and cancel the reservation and get our money back... More

Was a little wary of this hotel as I was travelling on business but it is situated close to Legoland and is a resort hotel but my fears were unfounded. The hotel room was good, quiet and I enjoyed 4 excellent nights sleep I had access to the business lounge which is worth it in allowing a peaceful breakfast and... More

Here with my wife, but this is a very "kid-centric" hotel. It is just outside the gates of LegoLand so be warned. The front desk and restaurant staff were excellent and the breakfasts were well done. Self parking in under the hotel and is $12 per night. Outdoor areas were nice and the pool area was in great shape. Only... More

We were in town to celebrate my grand daughters first birthday and chose to stay here at the Sheraton with our free nights as members of Starwood. We were upgraded to a lovely large room. We enjoyed breakfast in the morning. I wished we had more time to enjoy the hotel and amenities.

Had a business retreat at the Sheraton including meals, meeting space and lodging. The event planner was extremely helpful, responsive and able to tailor to exactly what our group needed. Took the stress out of the planning.
