Not a resort but more of a motel. Got a good rate through priceline paid 79 a night. Booked 2 rooms. Room 145- It is clean but a couple of the towels had stained. Its a ADA room so we had plenty of space for a family of 4. There is a microwave and refrigerator in the room which is nice when traveling with little children. Room 149 clean but it smelled like a smoking rm. Called the front desk and they informed me that the rm is non smoking but the room above us is not. That was where the smell was coming from. Don't know why the hotel doesn't make the whole section of the building non smoking.
Great for family with children going to Legoland.
Basic breakfast, cereal, bagels, toast, suasage, egg, juice and coffee. Its free can't complain.
Small pool and not enough towels at the pool area.
Front desk lady ( Lisa) was nice and polite. Overall, nice motel and would stay again.
