This visit was a staycation for us. I will admit when I bought the Groupon for my son's birthday, I thought i was purchasing a two nigh stay at Legoland Hotel. It is also important to note that our planned stay coincided with the Poinsettia Fire in Carlsbad. The hotel was full due to the families that had been evacuated, but that did not frazzle staff. We were very glad to hear that they had given those families a special, lower rate and that they really went out of their way to help families enjoy their visit during such hard times.
We were very impressed with the service. Though your room may not be ready, they welcome you to come and enjoy the pool as soon as you'd like. The pool is big with a splash pad which the kids enjoyed. The rooms are big and the facilities are both communal and intimate. One only needs to walk across the street to Legoland. Another plus is that the parking is included and you can keep your car there throughout the day you check out -- parking at Legoland is EXPENSIVE. The restaurant on site is the local brewery Karl Strauss which is a local favorite. A key to why this is a great family hotel is that Costco is just down the block...you can buy your tickets to Legoland, Seaworld, etc there as well as the food, water, and other items you will need for your vacation.
