LEGOLAND Castle Hotel Snapshot

In 2018 the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel became the second on-site hotel at the LEGOLAND California Resort. From the rooms to the amenities, the property has so much to offer. If you have kids who love LEGO bricks, you'll want to make sure you stay here or consider a stay at the original LEGOLAND Hotel at least once.

There is nothing else quite like these hotels! Our team has stayed at both multiple times with their own families and all the kids have had a blast. You’ll also get access to LEGOLAND Park before it opens to the general public. This is our favorite thing about the LEGOLAND Resort hotels, since getting in early means you’ll be able to do even more each day of your stay.

Bonus Tip: Use this LEGOLAND vacation countdown for a future trip.
  • Sleeps up To: Five guests (seven in the Royal Princess Suite)
  • Transportation: Walk to LEGOLAND
  • Check In/Out Time: 4:00 pm / 11:00 am
  • Get Away Today Perks: Free full breakfast Location:LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is located right across from the original LEGOLAND Hotel.

    Additionally, the LEGOLAND Resort is close to the coast, making San Diego beaches completely accessible during your vacation. You're also in a convenient location to head north to Disneyland or south to SeaWorld.
  • LEGOLAND Castle Hotel Rooms

    You’ll find three different themed room types at the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel:

    Each of these room types are considered fully themed, meaning you’ll find LEGO creations throughout and have a truly immersive experience.

    Standard themed rooms in each of the categories sleep up to five guests. You’ll find a king bed, a set of bunk beds and a trundle bed in each room. Plus, the adult and kids’ sleeping areas are separate, with their own flat screen TV in each.

    Kids will love the interactive games and LEGO brick building areas found in each room, as well as the in-room treasure chest with its very own take-home LEGO gift. The family-friendly bathrooms are also a huge plus as they include a step stool and built-in potty training seat.

    It's important to note that all of the Magic Wizard and Knights & Dragons rooms are standard rooms. There are a few of the Royal Princess standard rooms, but many of the Royal Princess rooms are larger suites that sleep up to seven.

    Amenities in each room include a mini-fridge, beverage refreshments that are replaced daily, a coffee maker, LEGO theming, 2 high-definition flat panel TVs and a welcome treasure hunt with LEGO surprises. Yep, that’s right – a welcome treasure hunt! Your kids will love racing through the treasure hunt to find the key that unlocks the in-room treasure chest. The LEGO surprise inside is only slightly better than the hunt itself!

    You can book discounted LEGOLAND Castle Hotel room rates here. Keep in mind that room type is subject to request, so you’ll want to let us know which room you’d prefer when booking. Requests aren’t guaranteed of course, but the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel will do its best.

    The Royal Princess Suites are not available to book online. Instead, you must call our agents at 855-GET-AWAY and they can check to see if an upgrade is available for your dates.

    LEGOLAND Castle Hotel Pools & Amenities

    The courtyard at the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is spectacular and a hub for most of the hotel's entertainment. You'll get an entertainment schedule when you check-in. You'll find costumed character meet and greets four times a day and a bubble show for young kids nightly.

    Each day also offers a "Fairy Hide & Seek" perfect for early check-ins, rotating nightly experiences, as well as "The Kingless Kingdom" show. There truly is enough to do at the hotel that your family won't want to leave.

    The LEGOLAND Castle Hotel also features a playground and an amazing pool area. Your resort fee includes access to all of the hotel's amenities.

    LEGOLAND Castle Hotel Dining

    One of our favorite things at the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is the full breakfast buffet. This spread is included each morning as part of your resort fee and it is over the top. You'll find everything from an omelet station, to French toast sticks to fresh fruit and everything in between. You won't leave hungry!

    In addition to breakfast, the in-house restaurant at the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel serves lunch and dinner for an additional charge. The Dragon's Dens Restaurant & Bar is awesome. And if you are looking for dinner and a show, you'll be glad to know that the hotel restaurant offers interactive retellings of your favorite fairy tales each evening.

    With so much fun theming, you might think that LEGOLAND would be able to get away with serving anything. But the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel takes their food just as seriously as they take their fun! Their chefs are top notch and try to locally source as much as possible. That means food is fresh, seasonal and delicious.

    The LEGOLAND Castle Hotel and entire resort are also well-versed in handling food allergies and restrictions. Don't be afraid to ask for any special accommodations. They're happy to help and have likely handled it before.
