Although it's known as one of the Anaheim Disneyland hotels, The Red Lion Hotel Anaheim offers the humble atmosphere of a friendly California inn, and business travelers will appreciate the 5,000-square-feet of event space and free Wi-Fi (fees may apply) throughout the property. The sleek, glass-walled hotel greets its guests with comfy low-rise chairs on the terraces and swaying palms out front. Making a play on its name with the Roaring Start breakfast, the Red Lion also makes the most of its location, with outdoor fire pits to keep guests toasty-warm while watching the weekend Disney fireworks. There's a relaxed family feel to Red's Pasta Kitchen, and the outdoor pool offers heated luxury until 9:00pm every night.

Neighborhood
The Anaheim Red Lion Hotel stands on West Katella Avenue, among other Disneyland 'good neighbor' family hotels, a few moments from the California Adventure Park's main gate and the free-to-stroll avenues and attractions at Downtown Disney. Baseball enthusiasts will love the fact that Angel Stadium is less than two miles away from the hotel, while the enormous Honda Center, at the east end of Katella Avenue, plays host to the Anaheim Ducks hockey team and welcomes some of biggest names in show business for arena-sized concerts.
Hints and tips
When booking, bear in mind that rooms facing the pool have the best views of the nightly fireworks at Disneyland.
After a day spent pounding the resort pavement, tired legs can hop on the ART no. 6 to the hotel.

Friendly Staff (for the most part) but rest of it needs a little improvement

The location and the courtesy of the front desk, concierge and gift shop staff is by far the biggest selling point. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, though overall hotel could use a bit of paint in places and repair. It's showing its age in some places. The cashier for the snack bar and buffet is difficult to understand and rude at times. She along with the breakfast buffet were the low points. The coffee was not great by any stretch of the word. The food was "ok" but definitely NOT worth the price we paid per person (even for kids...only kids 6 and under eat free). If you're looking to save money by eating at IHOP next door, think again. Prices are extraordinary and definitely not worth it. We found, overall, eating inside Disneyland to be the best value dollar for dollar. Our stay was decent, and again the desk and gift shop staff were excellent, but I'd probably stay somewhere else next time.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Best to order in from outside the resort area. For snacks, try the CVS across the street. Snacks and meals are overpriced within the hotel.

Great Disney Getaway

Hotel was perfectly located next to the Disney theme parks. The hotel allowed you to keep your car in their parking lot after checking out. Therefore, we avoided having to pay for parking at Disneyland.

Terrible service and amenties

The check-in process was a nightmare - large groups of teenagers softball teams. It took over an hour to register and I was then told my room wasn't available. Only after throwing a fit we were finally shown a room, but they wanted to us to wait for a much crappier one. Would NEVER NEVER stay at any Red Lion again...

4 Star...? Come on now...

The only reason that I booked this hotel was because it looked nice online and location-wise, it falls across the street from Disneyland on Harbor Ave, so that's always a plus, plus parking was plentiful (paid parking) but didn't see any private security or anybody walking in the parking lot making sure everything is ok, found that a bit weird and irresponsible, especially being right next to an IHOP/IHOP parking lot. This hotel is a bit deceiving, the hotel itself looks good on the outside, with the lobby inside being very beautiful. The rooms however are a different story... the room is ventilated by this old school A/C unit that they've had for the past few decades. Immediately upon arriving, we cranked it on/up since it was pretty hot outside. Within a few minutes, I noticed my allergies started going crazy inside and they would slowly disappear as we left outside to go back to the park--so I think it's safe to say that the room isn't "Allergy" friendly if you, like me, suffer from year long allergies. The bed themselves were SMALL queen beds, and the pillows were tiny and horrendous and felt far from a pillow. The decor on the wall looked like leftover "bathroom shower tile". The bathroom itself had NO ventilation system, no fan, no nothing, and the metal panel on the ceiling above the shower head (about 1 ft above you) was rusted out all over past the old coat of white paint that was thrown on it probably years ago. To call this place a "4 star hotel" is a bit of a stretch, I'd say this hotel is a 3 star or 3.5 at best (and thats being generous). The hotel staff was nice too, however, the price of the hotel room was not justified at all. If being able to breathe is a perk I pay staying at nice hotels, then next time I'll pony up and spend the extra money, but this time, our 'go to' hotel was booked so we had no other choice. I'd only recommend this place if you got in on a hotel-room-sale PLUS an extra discount from your booking site... with so many hotels on this street alone, why settle for something subpar?

Disneyland

Great stay! Room was clean and had view of Disneyland fireworks. Room also offers a small fridge, microwave and a Keurig brewing system with K cups. Walking distance to Disney and across the street from a CVS pharmacy. Hotel makes s'mores down at the pool on Friday and Saturday nights.
