First Disney Visit

Would recommend Thu, Oct 23, 2014
For our needs, it was great. We arrived in the late morning and were able to check into our room right away. Hotel is convenient to the parks and we enjoyed swimming in the afternoon. The breakfast is generous considering it is complementary. Overall, we would return.

More than expected

Would recommend Tue, Sep 30, 2014
The hotel is older, and a bit of a walk to the park. However, I wasn't expecting such pleasant professional and friendly staff. The hotel is very clean and we observed staff cleaning the common space thoroughly. The extra touch of fruit infused ice cold water, in the lobby was refreshing. The included breakfast was sufficient and the smiling friendly staff helped out if needed. Enjoyed our stay!

Dining

Naples pizza in Downtown Disney. Excellent atmosphere and food.

Location

The hotel is less than a mile from Disneyland and offers a great breakfast with a rooftop seating area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is a little old and can be a little noisy.

Great value and location!

Would recommend Sun, Aug 10, 2014
The kitchenette room was perfect and very clean. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Even though our room was along busy Katella ave the shuttered windows gave privacy. The breakfast room and terrace on the 5th floor was a very nice way to start the day. Pool was quite small but never seemed to get crowded. We would definitely stay again.

Terrible room conditions

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 3, 2014
This hotel was so bad we totally changed our travel plans and left a day early. When we first arrived, our room was not ready, so we headed back out (with our two small children), and did not return until after dinner. We were placed in a room on the first floor directly across from the elevator (not ideal). The paint fumes were so strong in our room that we asked to be relocated before even setting down our bags. Our second room was in a slightly better location (second floor, view of adjacent wall and pool pump) but smelled horribly of mildew. We thought that it was because the window had been left open and the air conditioner was left turned off. It was late, so we decided to shut the window, crank the AC, and hope for the best. The mildew smell never went away. The clothes I left out for my kids to put on in the morning were actually damp the next day. We were heading to Disneyland, and didn't have time to deal with changing rooms (again) that morning. We went up to eat breakfast (which left a lot to be desired), went about our day at Disney, but upon returning knew that we could not stay another two nights in the mildew box that was our room. We checked out first thing the next morning - both my kids were extremely congested from having slept in these conditions. The only redeeming part of it all was that the staff was helpful in refunding our last day there. AVOID THIS HOTEL - I learned that no "savings" is worth this much discomfort. Pay a little more to stay somewhere that doesn't make you sick!

Dining

Long walk to Disney - add at least 15 min on your day each way. That's a lot when you're tired after walking all day!

Great location for Disneyland!

Would recommend Thu, Jul 31, 2014
Our family (3 adults and 4 kids) stayed at this hotel because it offered a free hot breakfast and was within walking distance of Disneyland. When we arrived we were offered a larger room for the same price and free roll-away beds. :) Our stroller wheel broke and we asked if we could borrow a hammer to fix it. The maintenance guy came to our room immediately and fixed the wheel himself. :) The breakfast is okay, nothing great. We were there for several nights, so having some different options would have been nice instead of basically the exact same thing each morning. The pool was fine although a bit deep for kids under the age of 5 who don't swim. They couldn't play in the pool without someone holding onto them. Free parking was another benefit! And it only took us about 15-20 minutes to walk to Disneyland.

Dining

Do NOT eat at Captain Kidd's buffet outside the entrance to Disneyland. It was terrible! There are many other good restaurants within walking distance, nobody needs to eat at Captain Kidd's!

Great Family Hotel

Would recommend Sun, Jul 27, 2014
Nice location within walking distance to Disney/Downtown Disney and many restaurants. Also a 7-11 right next door. Rooms were nice and free breakfast was great. Free Parking and Wi-Fi was a plus too! Staff was very accommodating. I would definately stay there again.

Dining

Hotel Restaurant was very good and also very reasonable.

Disneyland trip

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 25, 2014
Good location, just a short 10 to 15 min walk to Disneyland maingate. No parking fee. Room was just ok. Beds and pillows weren't comfortable but the ac was decent. Bathroom had some mold which is terrible no mater where you're staying. Breakfast was included but after we tried it the first day we decided not to even try to eat there again. It was terrible. No meats at all and nothing tasted good. What we saved in the room was used to eat somewhere else. Overall the room was ok if you're on a budget but won't return there again.
