“Great Family Vacation near Legoland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2008

We just returned from a one night stay at the Carlsbad Sheraton near Legoland in a Club Level room 1329. The private entrance to Legoland was the main reason for our 4, 5 and 7 year old. The pool area had ping-pong and bean bag toss games the kids loved that. The on-site restaurant was very welcoming to our three high-energy children and we saw lots of kids in the restaurant too so we felt comfortable. The room was spacious BUT ONLY had 2 kids stations (CN and Nick) how about younger stations, toon disney, sprout, etc. Overall, the hotel was brand new and clean, staff very friendly (always saying hello and high-fiving the kids in the hallways) The club level room had plenty of breakfest hot foods and cold, and the evening reception had wine/beer and hot foods 5p-8p just enough to tide you over until dinner. GREAT PLACE, we will be back!!!!

Stayed July 2008

Overall it was a really nice place to stay. It's brand new, nicely designed and really clean. Everyone is really nice and it's well situated, especially if you're going to Legoland
BUT...
I don't understand their choice of mattress. It's like putting lipstick on a pig. You dress up this hotel so nicely, design great interiors, even pick out above average linens but cheap out on the one item that's inevitably going to be used, the bed. For the first time in my life, I checked the mattress type to know to avoid it, Sealy Super Saver designed for Sheraton. The room still smelled new and, yet, there were dips in the mattress. We can't figure out if they were so cheap that they've been wrecked already or if they just brought in old mattresses from another Sheraton. Neither of us had back problems when we went to bed but, fortunately, it seemed to be included in the package and we got to leave with parting gifts such as soar backs and swollen skin. I straightened out the mattress pad (just an absorbent one) about three times before giving up. If I had to stay there a second night I would literally dread going to bed. I've never had this experience and considering the amount of hostels I've stayed at, I think that says a lot.
So basically, the hotel is a perfect place to stay if you're looking for a clean, friendly, nicely designed space and an excuse to wake up to a friendly bottle of Vicodin.
