Happy with the room. It was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large and perfectly clean as well. Room had a kitchen with a microwave and refrigerator. The decor was pretty dated, but not in disrepair. Pleasant and prompt innkeeper. Free breakfast with juices, fresh fruits and pastries. Location is probably the best part about this place because you can easily walk to the beach as well as downtown Carlsbad.

... from dinosaurs to pumpkins, Lego friends girls to Star Wars characters. We initially went on a boat cruise to get ourselves familiar with the park, and this took in many of the iconic world images in Lego - including models of the Opera House, the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. The detail in these models was incredible, and the number of bricks was into the hundreds of thousands for some. We then walked around ...
... when the center closes (3 times per day), we must clean every surface and toy that has been touched by the children. We are not allowed to bring out the game boards, games, or other activities because they cannot be cleaned properly. If we use playing cards we must throw them away afterwards. Hahaha. And of course the big concern is that we are NOT allowed in passenger areas unless we were with the children. Not ...

One weekend after Sandra, the Mexican house cleaner had finished I went back to her house with her to hang with her kids that are about my age. Her husband cooked up a traditional burrito style meal that we ate with our hands then we were all entertained with 2 year old Jayden's antics. I also went and watched one of Ed's ice ...
... shallow splash area where George can also play. There are floating Lego bricks which the kids use to build a few small shapes to play with, and all in all, a very nice way to cool off after another day at Legoland.
Though, one thing we were not aware of – they do not open the buffet restaurant on weeknights! We go to the hotel café instead to order dinner, and wait… and wait… and wait… oh dear. Unfortunately, ...
... in Man v. Food! Our day was always going to be centred around San Diego's Zoo. Apparently one of the best known in the world, and considered by some to be superior to Twycross. I do like Twycross but it is beaten slightly by this one. A 45 minute bus tour required just to see 75% of the Zoo. We spent the next 4 hours walking around the huge zoo, which literally had everything. Sian's favourite animals being the Elephants. And I was much happier once I had seen ...
