Why You Should Consider LEGOLAND California Resort

One of our team members, Javi and his family, just recently stayed at the LEGOLAND California Resort. You can’t get the real low-down on LEGOLAND California Resort better than a firsthand account!

Here are the four top reasons why he and his family absolutely loved staying at this Southern California hotel.

A Hotel Geared Towards Kids

A themed hotel that’s all about LEGOs is about as great as it gets for kids. But even as adults we can’t forget what it was like when we first played with LEGOs growing up, and visiting this LEGOLAND hotel is about as nostalgic as Lincoln Logs for us.

It has so many activities for kids such as dance and LEGO stations all over the lobby. Not only will your kids enjoy it, but it will bring out your inner kid as well!

Themed Rooms - With TREASURE HUNTS!

Javi’s room was the Kingdom room, which was full of medieval decorations. Its room decorations, down to every small detail inside the room, bathroom, and on its walls were what really made the experience come alive.

One thing you may not know is that every room includes a secret treasure hunt for you and your family to try out!

You can’t have a LEGO themed hotel without - you guessed it! - LEGOs! And, boy, were there LEGOs upon LEGOs all day long - from the rooms to the characters walking through the lobby.

Be sure to get a picture of you and your family with one of your favorite characters before you go!
