Dracula's daughter Mavis marries Jonathan and shortly afterwards gives birth to a boy named Dennis. As Dennis nears his fifth birthday, Dracula begins to grow concerned that Dennis has not yet shown any vampire traits. Mavis also reveals she intends to move to California where Johnny grew up, deeming the hotel too dangerous for Dennis.

Dracula and Johnny form a plan to have Mavis travel to California with Johnny to visit Johnny's parents, Mike and Linda, while Dracula stays with Dennis. While Johnny and Mavis are away, Dracula enlists his friends Frank, Wayne the Werewolf, Murray the Mummy, Griffin the Invisible Man, and Blobby the Blob to teach Dennis how to be a monster. When these attempts fail, Dracula takes Dennis to a vampire summer camp where he learned to hone his vampire abilities. At the camp, Dracula throws Dennis off a fragile contraption in the hopes he will fly, to no avail. The incident is uploaded onto the internet and reaches Mavis and Johnny, who return to the hotel. Mavis reprimands her father and promises to move out of the hotel with Dennis after his birthday is over.

Dracula's father Vlad is invited to Dennis' birthday party by Mavis, forcing Johnny and his family to disguise themselves as monsters. At the party, Vlad attempts to scare Dennis into growing his vampire fangs, but Dracula stops him and confesses to having been in on the scheme in a final attempt to make Dennis grow his fangs. As the family argues, a dejected Dennis leaves and is comforted by Wayne's daughter Winnie. Dennis and Winnie are then attacked by Vlad's misanthropic servant Bela, who injures Winnie. Enraged, Dennis grows his vampire fangs and attacks Bela, who calls his minions for reinforcements.

The hotel monsters and humans arrive and manage to fight off Bela's minions, who retreat. An enraged Bela attempts to kill Johnny, but Vlad arrives and stops him, shrinking him down to a harmless size. With Bela dealt with and Dennis now having revealed himself to be a vampire, Mavis decides to remain at the hotel and continue raising her son at Transylvania, and the party resumes.
