Although the front desk and breakfast staff were very helpful and accommodating, this hotel is in desperate need of renovation. There is no elevator, and the carpet, drapes and furniture are very old and worn. The odor in the hallway was terrible, and we found a large cockroach in the tub on arrival. Most of our towels had holes in... More

We only stayed in the hotel for one night when we went to Legoland but the hotel was pretty good. Wasn't the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed at but it wasn't the worst either. I would stay there again if I had to that's all I have to say. 👍🏼👍🏼😜😜

The pet rooms were clean and relatively quiet. The restaurant attached to the hotel billed itself as a sports bar featuring wings but it actually served decent Mexican food with great guacamole and margaritas. The only problem in the room was the telephone had been removed prior to our stay, so to communicate with the friendly staff at the desk... More

Well nothing fancy this motel offers large clean rooms at reasonable prices. We stayed here for two nights while taking our grandson to Legoland and it was ideal. After a long day at the park their swimming pool was clean and well-maintained. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel where the food is all right, but there are many... More

Hotel room was decent for the price I paid, but I had no phone in my room, some of the outlets didn't work and I got kicked out of the pool area because I had two guest over who were not staying there. I was told there aloud to be in the room but only guest staying at the hotel... More

I am sorry to hear your visit with your friends was not enjoyable. However, for security and liability reasons, anyone not staying in the hotel is not permitted use of the pool. We do have the regulations posted at the entrance of the pool. Also, Housekeeping is closed by early evening. Anything extra requested comes from the Front Desk. Thank... More

About 5 minutes from Legoland. Clean, comfortable rooms. Basic amenities, no frills. Thought we had reserved a suite type room with living room area from booking.com which was misleading because this Howard Johnson does not have any such rooms. Pet friendly. Very nice, clean pool area. Pool is 8 ft which is really nice!! Great choice if you are Legoland... More

We do have rooms for guests traveling with pets available but these rooms are to be requested if available as all... More
