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.

Excellent Hotel!

My friends and I went to Disneyland and staying here made our trip that much more fun. We saved money on the great price and not having to pay for parking at Disneyland since we were in a great walking distance to the park. The maids are amazing! we always came back to a clean room which made it that much more comfortable to relax in after long days at the park.

Why all the bad comments?

We went to Disney and it was very nice experience even dough with the bad weather that hit Orange County in that weekend. The staff was very friendly the room was very clean; the hotel was very well maintained even though in other 4 star hotels that I have visited in Anaheim in my past visits to Disney Red Lion was top notch. The buffet was very good, I would only suggest to have variety on the meals for people that stay for more than 2 nights. Also some small details on the room like a faulty lock and the malfunction of the room safe (and thank you for providing us other alternatives on the spot) need to be maintained more often. Thank you Red Lion.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Red Lion is located a long half block to Disney and a short half block to the Toy Story Parking Lot. So what we did if we were to tired to walk to Disney we just took a ride with the buses from the Toy Story Parking Lot and just walked back to the Hotel.

Ok

The hotel was ok, nothing special. You can hear the street from the rooms. Beds were medium with regards to comfort. Wifi was great sometimes and flaky other times. Dining options in the hotel are limited. Surrounding area is boring unless you are there to go to disney.

Great Family Get Away

We took a family vacation to Disneyland during the Thanksgiving Holidays. This was a great place to stay because it was clean, the breakfast they served was excellent, and this hotel was walking distance from Disneyland. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of taking a family vacation to Disneyland.

Great Location!

We went to Disney and California Adventure. The hotel was in a great location, only a 10minute walk to the parks. We got breakfast buffet each morning as part of our room rate. The only thing I did not like was the coldness of the room. The housekeepers shut off the heat when you are not there and the room ends up freezing. But otherwise, great customer service at the front desk and nice accomodations.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Don't eat at the IHOPs or Denny's right by the parks. There are several of them along the strip of hotels on the way to the parks. My husband and I had 2 sandwiches and 2 ice teas at an IHOP and it cost almost 40 bucks. Go just a couple of blocks away and eat at those restaurants.

Definetly worth it

The fireworks view was worth the upgrade price. The hotel was very clean and well put together. The only exception to perfection was the unadvertised parking fee that added 14 dollars per night. Other than that is was a great experience.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Can walk to Disneyland but it's a little far. Walk one-way and take the Anaheim Transit back when you have had a long day at the park. It's only a few bucks for a 3-day ticket.
