35th Anniversary Trip
We had a balcony room & enjoy sitting on it at night. The church on the next block rang out the time each hour during the day & the the bells played a hymn. It was so peaceful. We could also see the carriage rides past the hotel. All lite up at night they were beautiful. COVID precautions were still in place, so we couldn’t eat in the dining room. It was a very neat experience to stay in a historical hotel.

nice hotel
Excellent location. When I called the day before they said we could park there in the morning So we could walk to LEGOLAND, but when I went in to ask the front desk person acted like it was a burden, but we did get a parking pass and that worked out perfectly. They told us we had a jet tub, but warned us the jets did not work. The bathroom had a dripping sound with black water damage at the top. The showers would become hot and then cold suddenly. The one front desk guy was super helpful with tips. Overall, it’s a good hotel with a good location, but it definitely needs some attention.

My room was upgraded to a handicap room with balcony access. There was nothing to see but a small unattractive parking lot. I used to restroom downstairs and there wasn’t any toilet paper or paper towel in it. Our lights kept dimming. Let’s just say, for the amount that I paid for this room I was very disappointed.
