Just What We Needed

Would recommend Mon, Dec 7, 2015
We were impressed with what we got in this hotel. While being an older hotel it is still well maintained and clean. Every morning we woke up to clean sidewalks and staff working to keep things nice. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and ready to help and the staff at the front desk was extremely accommodating. The rooms were decent sized and the beds were comfortable. Walking distance to Disneyland was a breeze-if you don't include the wait for the traffic light it is easily a 5 minute walk. While we stayed in an out of the way room that was quiet as far as other guests are concerned, we did notice that the dumpters were below is and that got noisy every once in awhile. We also noticed the the ventilation system was noisy-a droning hum was constant and this could have been because of our location in the property or that it is older but it made it a little hard to sleep sometimes. Over all we have no complaints. We would recommend this hotel to others. Good value, great people, close to Disney.

Great location and value

Would recommend Fri, Jun 19, 2015
Overall this is a great hotel for the price. It's right across the street from Disneyland. So getting there is only a 10 minute walk. Also, you can enjoy the fireworks show from the hotel property in the event you're too pooped and just want to relax while watching the show. It also has a nice swimming area for the little ones which includes water slides and fountains. It has everything you need for a fun filled family vacation! My only complaint is that the toilet in our room was an industrial style toilet you typically see in public restrooms. They have a loud jet like flush which scared my kids. It also has the matching public restroom toilet seat. You know, the kind of seat that has an opening in the front. It made it more difficult to assist our child when using the toilet. However, I do understand this type of seat may be required for ADA compliance. Just an FYI

Great Retro Hotel Close to Disneyland

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
We stayed for 6 days over Christmas in building #1. The Hotel was beautifully decorated for the season. We had a queen bed and a bunk bed in our room which was small, but functional. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was surprisingly quiet for being only steps away from the freeway. It took approximately 40 minutes to drive there from LAX, parking was free and close to the building. There is no restaurant on site and no gym for those who are so inclined. There are plenty of amenities near by though. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bunk beds were suitable for kids or a small teenager. If you want more space, stick to a standard room.

Dining

Mimi's was great for breakfast and appetizers and drinks. It is right across the street from the hotel. Make reservations in advance if you don't want to wait.

This hotel was great! The only reason it got 4 stars is that at $200 a night you pay for every bit plus some. Breakfast was not even included!!
