Count "Drac" Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler in the first three films, Brock Powell in Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard, David Berni in the TV series' first season, Ivan Sherry in the TV series' second season, Brian Hull in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania) is based on the Count Dracula of lore. Although he is a Romanian-accented misanthropic vampire, he has no cravings for human blood, saying that he drinks a blood substitute and "you can't tell the difference". He also dislikes people implying he says "Bleh bleh bleh" all the time, as he only ever says it to state that he doesn't say it. In the third movie Drac is ranting and says "blah, blah, blah..." much to the astonishment of the guests who believe he has finally intentionally said "Bleh bleh bleh".
Jonathan "Johnny" Loughran (voiced by Andy Samberg in the films, Brian T. Stevenson in Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard) is one of the main characters in the series. He is the first human inside Hotel Transylvania and falls in love with Count Dracula's daughter, Mavis. He always carries his backpack and shows a strong connection with it. By the end of the first movie he has already integrated into the hotel and is accepted by the clientele. He is portrayed as a good-natured and easy-going slacker.
Mavis Dracula (voiced by Selena Gomez as an adult in the films, Sadie Sandler as a child in the first film, Melissa Sturm in Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard, Bryn McAuley in the TV series) is the only daughter of Count Dracula and Martha, born in 1894. She is the wife of Johnny and the mother of young Dennis. She is shown to be more open to the human world than her father, as she knows how to use technology (cell phone, video chat, email) and is excited to see the world outside Hotel Transylvania and speaks with a New York accent.
After all, the attempt to recreate the craze from part 1 of the movie Hotel Transylvania title has not been successful. After the second part "watch while sleeping", the producers tried to regain the value of their potential characters by releasing the third part called Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation - Hotel of Mystery. 3: Vampire Vacation with a completely new setting, escaping from the old hotel that was too familiar with a trip to the city of Atlantis. Humor yes, touching yes, but almost the movie did not leave an impression on viewers after leaving the theater, everything slipped away easily.
