Legoland has been on our family’s wish list for well over a year. At first, I considered staying in Orlando, so we can add a few more attractions to the time there, but a one-hour drive in each direction was just too much. So an alternative plan came into action. Stay as close as possible to Legoland, Florida. Finding a hotel near Legoland is particularly hard for us until we find Park View Hotel Winter Haven.
Best Hotel Near Legoland Florida
My plan literally went from driving one hour each way to “I want us to walk to Legoland”. Even though Winter Haven has a bunch of hotels, narrowing down the best one was easy.
1. We don’t stay at chain hotels – so that eliminated over 80% of the hotels.
2. It had to be less than one-mile walking distance – this eliminated all but one – Park View Hotel.
Park View Hotel Winter Haven FL
Park View Hotel is a medium-sized hotel that literally overlooks Legoland. The reason for the 15-minute walk is because the main entrance to the park is on the other side. And if you did want to drive to Legoland, Park View gives you a 50% refund on the parking at the park – a less than three-minute drive. No matter what, you win.
The hotel was also perfect for us. Even though we prefer to stay in vacation rentals or suites with two rooms, for a theme park adventure the one-room worked out well since we spent the entire day enjoying ourselves and only came back to the hotel to sleep.
Sleeping – Each room is two double beds.
Extra beds – We need to have three beds, my kids don’t sleep together, and a very comfy roll-out bed was placed with just enough room for us to get around with my son having plenty of his own space.
Breakfast is included – that is a huge money savor.
Pool time – unfortunately, when we were there, Florida was going through a rare cold front where climates dropped to less than 50 degrees. Not ideal for swimming. Gratefully, we had Legoland and the kids never truly bummed out about no pool time.
Service – the staff was incredibly friendly and quick to help with all that was needed.
