I read all the reviews before I booked and thought it would be great to stay here for a couple days when we went to LEGOland. I was wrong. I booked two connecting rooms and called the hotel direct the day before to make sure they would be connecting since my kids are too young to stay in a non-connecting...

“Garden side (east facing) would be quietest. West facing might have ocean views but it is also the vast open carparking area.”

“Rooms facing the north east don't have much scenery to look at”
