Legoland hotels

Anyone recently stayed at a hotel near Legoland and can provide feedback?

I'll be driving up from West Palm Beach and hoping it get as close to the park the night before but I don't mind stopping even if an hour or less away from Legoland if it is on route from the south.

Any suggestions to look at? Doesn't seem like there are much choices in the vicinity of the attraction.

probably not - it is within driving distance of WDW.

that say here a link you can look up hotels on traveladvisor - but take each review with a grain of salt

here is a link to some hotels close to it

.https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...-8&sa=N&tab=wl


if this does not work - go to google pick maps - ask for legoland in florida find hotels nearby

if you have a favorite hotel near Disney that might be the best. now won;t go with a disney hotel unless you are doing WDW.

I have a friend who works at Legoland who says all the hotels near the park are pretty scary. You may want to look a bit further out, maybe even closer to Orlando if you're willing to drive the extra mile.

I already did my due diligence research on tripadvisor and all the reviews were pretty scary for the ones nearest to Legoland but was hoping someone on the board would say otherwise as there are some decent reviews too.

We are driving up from west palm beach which according to google maps is 3 hrs drive and to Orlando is 4 hrs. I don't want to go all the way to Orlando because 4 hours is a lot.

Basically I want to drive up to closer to Legoland Sunday night and then layover. Monday morning I can hit the park as soon as open and by early afternoon, I would then check in at Disney. I really want to avoid going all the way to Disney Sunday night and then drive backwards to Legoland and then back to Disney.

Also hoping someone more familiar with the actual route from WPB to Legoland area, if there are any cities in between worth looking at for hotels. So even if I drive 2 hours north from palm beach and then stay at hotel that is still an hour south of Legoland, I am willing to so something like that. I just don't know the cities well enough in between.

It's about a half hour the other side of Legoland (heading towards Tampa), but have you considered Lakeland?

Checking Trip Advisor, I see a number of highly rated hotels there.

I did look into Tampa but if we are driving past Legoland then I might as well drive to Disney for an extra night. But thanks for the thought.



Is the neighborhood where Legoland is located a small town or something?

are you coming on I4 - then when you leave I4 and go on us27 - there is Davenport. It is a fairly nice area and has some good hotels.

now if you are coming a different way - say it.
