The Legoland Hotel: A Staycation Like No Other!


Legoland Hotel Welcomes You!

We love the Legoland Resort, and as members, have enjoyed watching the hotel be built from the ground up. We were more than excited when we received an invite to check out the LEGOLAND Hotel two days before the hotel opened its doors tot he public. We were in for quite the treat!

Fun from the moment you walk in!

From the moment you walk in, you are in for a treat! You can check-in and let the kiddos have fun playing on a pirate ship or climbing up a castle. The kids did not want to move from the lobby! Here is the scoop on this amazing hotel, it is a must visit and stay for families and here is why:

The three story, 250-room hotel is located right at the main entrance to LEGOLAND park. Guests at the hotel will enjoy exclusive early morning access to the theme park. I wish I could accurately describe the attention to detail at the hotel. Everywhere you turn, there is something fun for the kiddos and there is attention to details in every inch of the hotel. There are more than 3,500 LEGO models in the entire hotel.

I’m not a fan of elevators, but the elevators at the hotel are not to be missed. The Disco elevators are set to fun seventies music as a mirror ball rotates. I’m telling you, every inch of the hotel is FUN!

Now on to the rooms! Ahhhhhmazing I tell ya!

The rooms were amazing and we had to drag the kids out of there!

You can choose from one of three themed rooms: Pirate, Adventure, or Kingdom. We choose the Pirate Room and it was a huge hit with the kiddos. Every single room, has a separate sleeping area for up to three children complete with bunk beds, a trundle bed and their own tv.

It was so nice to have the kiddos sleep in their own room and the adults have their own room. Plus how many hotel rooms can comfortably accommodate more than a family of four? Not many, but the LEGOLAND hotel, certainly does! Every room also includes a treasure chest that your kiddos can unlock once they complete a special treasure hunt activity finding clues throughout the room. I am completely honest, when I say the kiddos did not want to leave!

There is so much to share and I honestly can’t fit it all in one post. I will share in a second post about the activities, the restaurants, and all the new LEGOLAND hotel has to offer. Stay tuned!

A Mini Getaway at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa


We had a blast staying at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort!

Last month, we had the opportunity to spend a fun filled day at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa and boy were we in for quite the treat! Located in beautiful Carlsbad and only a short walk away from the Legoland Resort, this hotel has the amenities to make it the perfect family getaway or vacation. Our family had a very relaxing and fun time. It was great! We were able to rest in a fantastic room, enjoy the amenities and also have some fun in the sun.

They loved every minute of our stay!

The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa was the perfect spot for our little weekend getaway. Like I mentioned earlier, the resort is only a  short walk away from Legoland. The hotel offers a private entry to the park. This alone is fantastic, because you don’t have to pay for double parking and you are always a short walk away from your room. If you are a beach lover, you are in luck! The resort is only about a mile away from the beach. We had beautiful  views of the ocean from our balcony.

We stayed in a standard room and it was beautiful! I couldn't get too many shots because the kids were jumping up and down before we could grab our camera.

The rooms feature very comfortable beds, flat screen televisions and complimentary high speed internet! A hotel always wins me over with free wi-fi! There is plenty of room to spread your stuff around and yummy smelling bath products. Ahh but I bet you’re wondering, what about the pool and the grounds? They were wonderful!

The pool was heated to perfection!

The pool is heated year round and was the perfect temperature. You can lounge and enjoy poolside service or join in on the aquatic fun. My kiddos had a blast in the main pool and also warming up in the jacuzzi. We spent a beautiful day lounging in the sun.

The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa is also home to a world class spa and home to Twenty/20 Grill & Wine Bar. You are also only about an exit away from the Carlsbad outlets and many family restaurants.

Make sure to take advantage of the Summer Memories Metrolink Package which includes accommodations, round trip Metrolink tickets, transportations, kids eat free, DVD Player and two tickets to Legoland. For additional info head here.

I hope you enjoyed your stay as much as we did! Have fun!

This year with gas prices through the roof and a very busy schedule, we have decided to skip a traditional week long vacation and are instead planning on a few weekend “staycation” getaways that are only about an hour or two from home. The kiddos love Legoland and we plan on heading to Carlsbad for a little getaway in the next few weeks.

If you are looking for a fun family getaway, I wanted to share a package that is too good not to share! The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa has teamed up with Metrolink to offer So Cal residents a fun and eco friendly deal that is perfect for that weekend escape! You can leave the car at home, jump on the train and head down to Carlsbad for a great time. When you arrive in Carlsbad, a complementary shuttle will be there to whisk you away.

The package includes a two night stay , round trip Metrolink tickets, two Adult LEGOLAND California Hopper Tickets, a complimentary in-room DVD player upon request, kid’s weekend activities through and all kiddos under 12 eat for free. Packages start at $229.00 and have to  be purchased 10 days in advance.The resort looks gorgeous and we’ve wanted to stay here for some time. It’s also happens to be located next door  to Legoland. You can’t beat the location!

I know this for a fact- Trains+Hotel+Legoland+Beach= Happy Family! My kiddos will be in heaven!!!
