The property was in the midst of being updated and there are nice touches improving this property. The kitchen was being remodeled so we had to go across the street to the neighboring hotel (owned by the same people) for breakfast. Lots of works blocking off the front office entry way and different stairways around the hotel. A little inconvenient, but completely justifiable for thr remodeling/updates.

Our rooms were very spacious, and nice. They were very clean and having a kitchen with little ones was super convenient. And it was very close to Legoland.
