Updated my original review to knock it down a few in ratings because of an incident at the end of our stay. He was standing on the little wooden stool while at the sink and it slipped out back from under him. Luckily my wife was there to grab him but he still had some pain from part of his chest hitting the edge of the sink counter. I am not sure… Read more
Updated my original review to knock it down a few in ratings because of an incident at the end of our stay. He was standing on the little wooden stool while at the sink and it slipped out back from under him. Luckily my wife was there to grab him but he still had some pain from part of his chest hitting the edge of the sink counter. I am not sure if there is supposed to be some grip at the bottom of those things but it can be real slippery on that floor. If you are staying at the hotel, check those stool first. Pros: Everyone is wearing masks Everyone does a good job in distancing where they can Elevators rules are one family per ride and the guests follow it. Room was very clean. I still feel they need to not book guest in the same room on the same day the prior guest check out. They should at least just give it one day in between. They just opened up the mini land area so guest can at least check it out and walk around that area. Big shop is open but stock on items isn’t as what it used to be. Still it’s nice to shop and build it in the room. They had a shared microwave on each floor which was nice and of course a fridge in each room. Cons Food - A limited selection and the value for what you get is a thumbs down in this review. Best options are to get take out from local restaurants since there are a lot around. We didn’t valet since self parking is pretty easy and the lot is so close. If you do want to help out and support the valet workers and bell hops, valet is available. Pool - They have reservation slots which is fine but they still overbook. The pool is a little too crowded during these times. Everyone in the pool chairs are decently spaced out but the pool is crowded (this was mid week even). They do utilize both pools (castle and legoland hotel). Overall: I would easily do this again during the pandemic. Safety was our concern and the rooms and overall hotel experience made us comfortable with how they are handling it (except the pool). The opening up of the mini land area was nice. At least they are trying to do something there. There are a lot of good restaurants to choose from nearby so there is a optional food solution. If they can improve on their food selection and even open up more of Legoland to where hotel guest can just go for a walk, that would be nice. Even offering some of the legoland food options for the hotel guest would help with the food options. I mean the burgers and churros have always been so good :) Read less

We stayed two nights in the Adventure fully themed with balcony room # 3012, We payed more for the fully themed and balcony (which I would highly recommend) as so we would have a table and chairs to eat on in the room. The room itself need some maintenance , as the canopy that was supposed to be above the bed was gone, and a row of tiles in bathroom were missing. The important thing thou is that it was clean. On the second day there, we rented a pool Cabana. The big question is, was it worth the $250.00? While yes and no .Upon check -in you have to reserve a time slot for the pool. the amount of time you have at the pool is, one hour and thirty mins, unless you have rented a half day Cabana. We choose to rent one, so it would give a little more space to social distance,so we could relax a little during Covid . It also gave the kids more time at the pool. So in that aspect it would be worth it. The problem with that is the Cabana was also in need of maintenance. The zippers were broke, so you could not close the sides at all. The other problem with that was , every hour and a half. everybody had to exit the pool while they cleaned for twenty mins., which by the way I was happy to see they took cleaning seriously, but when you get out of the pool it was so cold. While we had a Casaba to warm up in right? We would have if we were able to zip up the sides. The nice pool boy tried to fix it using paper clips but the wind keep blowing them off. He tried really hard for us, we really appreciated that.Finally toward the end he did get it to stay a little, it wasn't complicity closed but it helped some. Read less

We took a risk and decided to take the kids to the Legoland hotel even if the park is closed. Yes, the rooms are magical for kids, but the resort simply isn't ready to reopen. We waited in the heat for TWO hours to check/in and at the time of booking, weren't alerted to the fact that families can only visit the pool once a day and by reservation and also that the restaurant has limited options. When we called the booking line prior to our visit once we got word of the limited pool time, they kept skirting around the pool options and were incredibly rude. Add, there are just too many families here to allow for adequate social distancing. Having been to another hotel during COVID, we have a point of comparison and Legoland falls short. While we definitely appreciate their temp checks upon check-in, they would be wise to assign staggered check-in times to avoid families, mostly with kids under ten waiting in the heat. Fortunately, Carlsbad has nice beaches, so the visit isn't a total waste, but this will be our first and last visit to this famed resort. Read less
