          Stayed 4 nights at this hotel. Exceeded our expectations. Great location, nice breakfast, kid-friendly, very efficient and friendly staff. Pool and garden areas very nice. Free shuttle or easy walk to Legoland. Convenient to shops, restaurants, and beaches.

          For the price we paid, the rooms were clean, it was in a safe neighborhood, and walking distance to many dining and shopping options. The grounds were clean and the staff friendly....would stay here again for sure.
