Good place to stay with family. Hotel provides breakfast had good services. Also near Legoland and across the hotel is the flower field many other stores around to go to.

While the hotel is the older, two level California style hotel, the rooms are clean and fairly updated. On the first morning of my stay, a water pipe broke and there was no hot water or any water for a morning shower. Not a good situation for anyone. The hotel did give me a full refund for that night, so that was very good. I was hoping for at least a partial, and they gave a full night. Overall, hotel is great for families and anyone who wants a decent room and not alot beyond that. Rates are decent.

Disappointed
Great location. Close to Legoland, shopping and restaurants. Staff acted like we were bothering them at check in. They were not pleasant, I would recommend customer service training for hotel lobby staff. Room location was disappointing. Power plant hummed all night right outside our room door. Pipes under our balcony connected to the building across from us were an eye sore. Dark and scary outside corridors, light right outside our door was broken. Some areas looked nice but think they give bad rooms to Hotel.com guests. Complimentary breakfast was very limited. Scrambled eggs were watery and tasteless. The complimentary shuttle to Legoland was nice, drivers were pleasant.

Disappointing location
The title makes you think it is by the sea when it is actually in an industrial area, far from the sea. If you give that up it is an ok motel.
