Does your hotel provide a shuttle to and from airport or Legoland?

We do not provide shuttle services, but many local ones with excellent reputations are available as are rideshare services and cabs. 

Do we have adjoining rooms?

We do not have rooms that connect with doors from one room to the other.  Should this be a requirement, please ask about our suites that offer a separate living room with a pull out sofa bed and an express kitchen perfect for a family or a larger group traveling together. 

What items are included in our breakfast buffet?

The Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge serves a delicious continental breakfast that offers pancakes, freshly made danish and muffins, bagels and other breads, fresh whole fruit, a selection of yogurt, oatmeal, cereals, breakfast sandwiches, coffee, juices, and many other seasonal and surprise goodies. We also offer gluten free and sugar free options.  Please call the hotel directly if you have a specific question. 

Does our hotel offer laundry service? What is the cost?

A guest laundry facility is available on site for a nominal cost.  Dry cleaning and pressing may also be arranged, although costs vary by garment. 

Do you allow pets?

Due to the intimate nature of our hotel, we do not allow pets. We do, however,  comply with the ADA and allow service animals. The ADA does not qualify therapy, comfort, emotional support, or companion pets as service animals.  In keeping with that definition, the hotel only allows qualified service animals as specified in the ADA.
