In 1895, Dracula builds a resort in Transylvania, hidden from the humans, to raise his beloved daughter Mavis in a safe environment. In the present, the place is the Hotel Transylvania, where monsters bring their families to vacation far from the frightening humans. Dracula invites his friends - Frankenstein and his wife Eunice; Wayne and Wanda, the werewolves; Griffin, the invisible man; Murray, the mummy; Bigfoot, among others - to celebrate the 118th birthday of Mavis. When the party is ready to start, the 21-year-old Jonathan is walking through the forest and stumbles upon the hotel. Dracula sees Jonathan and disguises him as a monster to hide Jonathan from the guests. But Mavis also sees Jonathan and Dracula forces him to pose as a monster. Soon Mavis believes that Jonathan is the "zing" of her life despite the advice of her father about humans. Written by

In the movie commentary, it is mentioned the town at the end with the fair is loosely based on a real town known as Sighisoara, Romania. Sighisoara is also known as the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the real Count Dracula and is the only inhabited citadel in Europe, outside Corsica (where all the citadels are inhabited). See more »
While Eunice is playing Bingo, and has five cards infront of her with different dot patterns, all the cards have exactly the same numbers in all the same positions. When the shot pans to the old monster next to her, she also has the exact same bingo card. See more »
Cute movie. Has a couple of great messages -- especially one about prejudices. There are some adult jokes, some childish jokes, lots of laugh out loud moments but most importantly the following messages: Hatred against those we don't know is wrong; Let yourself get to know a person before deciding whether they are good or not; and go along for the ride and let yourself enjoy life.
I also love the fact that this is a Dad raising his child situation. There are really few movies that show a Dad can step up and do the right thing for their children if given the chance.
While I didn't particularly care for the fart joke or some of the childish parts the kids in the theater laughed and laughed.
