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.

Red Lion for Wondercon

Same as last year, excellent- two criticisms- the breakfast buffet was fair-the eggs were bland, and there should be more fruit. The bartender on Saturday was a bit overwhelmed. The happy hour is a good deal, and the appetizers are good, but the server seemed out of sorts.

Red Lion

Overall, a positive experience, I have stayed here in the past and you can't beat the convenience. The walk isn't bad at all, about 10 minutes; however after a long day at Disneyland you might not want to take that walk. Paying $5 for the shuttle might make you change your mind though. I didn't know to factor in that the hotel was going to charge for parking $12 a day. I only rented a car so I didn't have to pay for a shuttle but this offset the cost. My main concern was the shower/bathtub didn't drain well so I couldn't give my daughter a traditional bath. It's up to you to outweigh the pros and cons.

Good value

Good value for a hotel within walking distance of Disneyland. Pool was large and area around it was very comfortable. Our only complaint was the room cooling system. The unit ran all night but never got below 77F. There seems to be a disconnect between the unit and the wall mounted thermostat. When we finally were able to get the unit to produce cool air it was time to leave for the day. When we returned mid-day it had been shut down and the room was back on the 80's!!

Perfect and affordable

I'm a college student, which means most of the time I'm broke. Also being an international student, I have no car and so the location means a lot. This hotel is located in a perfect area, very walkable to places like restaurants, Garden Walk or most importantly Disneyland. That's why I booked it for my 1st trip ever to Disneyland. The price is ok and I guess it fits the quality of room and service. I got a room on the second floor so can't really judge the view. The room was nice and clean although some cracks on the ceiling and walls are visible. Nice amenities in the room but the AC was loud, the water pressure was very low and the internet was rather slow. I didn't use the swimming pool or any other amenities in the hotel but in overall, the experience was pleasant and the hotel was nice for the price.
