Here now in Oct. 2020 - there are tons of people not wearing their masks in the common areas of the hotel. People are packed in close together. The staff doesn’t seem to care. I even had to remind a front desk employee to go put on a mask. Really disappointed in Legoland - this is a breeding ground for COVID.

This is the land of no. Almost everything is closed or severely restricted during COVID. Hours of operation are completely arbitrary and make no common sense. Don’t bring kids under 48”.

This is the land of no. Almost everything is closed or severely restricted during COVID. Hours of operation are completely arbitrary and make no common sense. Don’t bring kids under 48”. Pool requires life vest - our kids have been swimming on their own for 3 summers, but are under 48” - barely. I was actually proud of them when they told the lifeguard they were unwilling to wear a life vest and preferred to just leave. There is not much else to do during the day if pool is not an option. Hope the manager does not get on here and try to justify my review like he has done for others. I politely told them that this did not seen to be the right resort for us, and asked them to respectfully let us out of our second night at the hotel. They were completely unwilling to do so. Food is pretty good, and our kids enjoyed the 15 minute movie at Lego Land. Otherwise, just don’t have much good to say about this place. Internet service is pathetic, and every time you try to order anything or make a reservation you basically have to start from scratch. The technology is not that hard!!! Read less

We stayed there overnight in September 2020 with 3 young children. As a kid friendly hotel, their decor, scavenger hunt, dance parties in the elevator were awesome. Since we are in covid time-you have to reserve your spot at the pool. Unfortunately we didn’t receive the info for this until we arrived and only one time slot was left during our visit. From a hotel stand point, I was not impressed. Torn lampshade, dirty comforter (under sheet so didn’t see until the morning), customer service was via texting , restaurants and other info was via QR code’s that didn’t work. Ac broke while we were there and they sent someone quickly. Read less

We stayed during COVID. We split our trip between this hotel and Hotel del Coronado in San Diego and the kids, hands down, chose the Legoland hotel as their favorite. Check in: A true cluster. The reception room is small for the volume they do and there were only two people working on the Memorial Day weekend we traveled. Room wasn't ready till 4 PM and there was little to do while waiting since basically everything was closed. You stand in a long line with lots of people and the whole check in process was a little painful. I feel they could streamline this tremendously. Room: We chose Pirate fully themed and were at the END of the hall. It was a long long long walk BUT the kids turned it into races and just sprinted down the halls. This became a thing they looked forward to, so not all bad. The bunk area was spacious enough for the kids, bedding was nice. The trundle on the bottom was a surprise but our kids ended up just using the bottom bunk and top bunk. Adult bed area was average. Plugs were noticeably absent. We had two plugs on one side of the bed. Good thing I travel with extension cords and copious amounts of USB adapters. There were two fridges in the room, strange but nice. There was a desk which really should be replaced by a table with chairs. There was NO WHERE to eat in the room lol. We ended up eating on the bed. Why is this important? Read on, COVID has closed the restaurants. The bed was supremely comfortable, the AC worked too good and curtains were true blackout. It was EASY to sleep in there especially since the kids were in the other room away from you. The bathroom: Themed but really bad quality. Yes, there was a stool for the kids and the toilet had a potty seat built in. But, the bathroom is tiny. Counter was large, but the toilet was sticking into the middle of the sink area and in front of the shower. Shower filled up like a bathtub and we ended up removing the drain plug so it would drain. There is a slimy shower curtain that was just gross. Also, would have been appreciated to have those curved shower curtain rods that would have made it just a little easier to shower. Soaps were in bottles mounted on the wall. The shower had a wand which made bathing kids easy. Service: No daily maid service but you can request a towel replenishment and trash emptying, which we took advantage of. To retrieve your luggage, car, order food and contact the front desk you used either texting or an app, which took a little learning curve but ultimately worked out perfect. Food: Dismal. You order on the web, pay then go pick up your bag on the table in front of the restaurant. You have 5-7 choices per meal and the quality was terrible terrible terrible. Like microwave everything. Ugh. Super duper let down on the food. Pool: The highlight of the trip. Beach entry which remained shallow for half the pool, then a small deeper end. Four lifeguards literally on patrol. They were so on it. They would whistle at anyone mis behaving and saw one dive in after a girl that went under for a few seconds. We felt ultra safe. The covid rules were you got one time slot per day per family for your vacation. That time slot was 90 minutes long, then you got booted. UNLESS you got a cabana which then you got to retreat to your cabana during their "cleaning time" then they let in the next group of reservations. The cabana was fine. Some of the walls zipped shut, some didn't. There was some lingering trash on the ground. It had a cocacola branded fridge that kept items from getting hot, but didn't cool. Couch was cool to have and the table for 4 was nice for lunch. No food service. The aquarium was open albeit through a reservation and you stand in a line. It was not terribly interesting, you can breeze through in 30 mins. Lego land was open to walk inside and go see "mini land" which turned out to be just ok. Then you can to go to the gift shop and or get some soft serve ice cream. Lots of little surprises throughout the hotel for the kids. The elevators play disco music for the kids to dance to, there is a whoopee cushion in the carpet for them to jump on, lots of buttons to press. We are definitely headed back but wont expect five star food. We would also get a suite simply for the room, the regular room was just a little small. Read less

This is our third stay at LEGO Land hotel in Carlsbad and May be our last. We stayed for 3 nights for a tots of 900+ and the Castle hotel has no front desk staff, the door is open 24/7 for anyone to wonder in, the room was dusty, had sand on the carpet and a few of the LEGO figures were dirty as pictured. No house keeping us provided even after we asked and no one monitors the miniland entrance which was full of no hotel guests and nomlego land staff. The pool was crowded and no efforts were made to social distance therefore we did not allow our kids to swim. You can access hotel staff at the original LEGO land hotel and the treasure hunt is also not offered at the castle hotel. We were shocked with the lack of security procedures, felt that the room and property were unkempt and for the 300+ a night price tag left extremely disappointed. We did raise our concern to the sizzled which is a text number in lie of a front desk and when I mentioned leaving a trip advisor review received no response. I am really surprised the website didn’t inform us in advance there was no house keeping and sadly our room at check in was less than clean to begin with. We went to a local target and purchased cleaning supplies to clean it ourself. Read less
