This hotel has some wonderful things going for it - it is conveniently located, very clean, comfortable, reasonably priced with courteous staff - over all up to the Holiday Inn standards that I have come to expect. The added Legoland Shuttle bus service is a real plus. The hotel shares an entry drive with the Hampton Inn and an Outback Steakhouse on a busy local business road. The Red Lobster was on an adjacent property as is a Boston Market, plus a Panera Bread a few doors down.
The down side that kept me from awarding the 5th star was the advertised but unfulfilled Lego Toy that was to be given to guests with children. We were told upon checking in that the toys ran out very fast. Having read the same situation in other reviews I had hoped it was a temporary situation but apparently it is a regularly occurring problem. It was a bit of a let down and I wish the hotel would stop advertising on something they could not deliver. The other issue was the swimming pool, which closes daily at 6 PM. I had wanted to take my child to the pool after we returned from an early dinner, only to read the sign indicating the early closing time. This was highly unusual in my experience and my child was, of course, disappointed.
