Recent guest reviews

I love the bed and the coffee machine that was a plus! Such a great time at the water park and the staff very friendly. Definitely i will stay again at this hotel!

The staff went out of their way to assure we had a comfortable stay and were accommodating with a smile. Great property, would stay again.

The location is walking distance to main gate at Disneyland Resort. One negative, no restaurant on the property.

Everything was super close ,the family loved it . Grandkids had a blast out in the water feature,n the water was heated perfectly. We thank everyone for the the best two day vacation ever

The hotel staff did balloon animals and face painting for the kids one of the day's and on fathers day had ice cream for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay there and will return.

Overall I had a decent stay here. Pros: the location to Disneyland, cleanliness, and comfortable beds. Cons: the hotel is very dated, or as they said “retro-fun.” The decor and furniture is at least 20 years old I would think, and the bathroom is the most dated part in my opinion. Also, we stayed on the second story where on the left and right sides there were bing dome windows. This would have been fine, except for the room being very well lit at all times. Napping would be difficult in this room, as well as sleeping in past 6. With all of that said however, by the end of our stay we got used to the very dated interior and slept well each night that we were there.

Nice rooms, great pool area, close to Disneyland. Beds were comfortable, nice little balcony, loved the Keurig in the room. Would definitely stay here again!!

Accommodation here is reasonably priced--and that's the main reason to select the hotel, I imagine.

We had another hotel booked initially for our trip which we cancelled for this one, and i am happy that we did so. We absolutely loved it. Very friendly and helpful staff, spacious and clean room with a nice patio. Within walking distance of Disneyland and other stores. Our kids loved their waterpark, though my oldest wished there was a bigger pool that he could go swim in the waterpark....nonetheless he loved it. Our building was close to the freeway and we were concerned about the noise, however we did not experience any issues with the noise at night. Looking forward for our next stay here ;-)

Very quiet. Close to the parks. Well maintained. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location. Some staff members were outstanding, some were just eh.

loved the water slide for our little ones. All it was missing is rom service. great placed overall

Great stay , clean room near Disneyland The newly renovated rooms are great

The rooms were comfortable and spotless. If you manage to get a 2nd floor room in buildings 3 through 6 then you'll enjoy a lovely vaulted ceiling that gave the room an openness. The hotel grounds, were extremely well kept and amazing. Love the 70s retro/post-modern feel of the hotel. There were fountains, flower beds, and while we didn't experience the pools they looked nice too. I even saw someone painting the exterior while we were there!

Great location! So close to the parks and various restaurants. Nice friendly staff, easy check out. Rooms are spacious!

Super close to amusement park, room accommodations so wonderful and unique

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you stayed with us on one of our event days. We have facing painting every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, and did a little extra for Father’s Day, so it’s great that you were able to experience both! We hope to be your first choice for accommodations when planning your next Disneyland vacation!

Thank you, Jennifer for taking time to review your recent stay with us. We are happy that you liked the location, comfortable beds, and cleanliness of our hotel. All of our second floor rooms in our pavilions and our rooms on the top floor of building one have the skylights. Though some guests prefer the arch ceilings and additional light, we understand the frustration of being woken up early from the light coming in. We also apologize that our rooms decor fell short of your expectations. All of our rooms in building 1 have been recently renovated. We are currently planning renovations on building 2 later this year, and hope to have the entire property fully renovated within the next few years. We always encourage our Guests to let us know if they are unhappy with their room. Our Front Desk Staff would have been happy to find an alternative room option for you. We truly appreciate your feedback as it will help us continue to improve. We really hope you give us another try and allow us the opportunity to better serve you and your family in the future.
