Red Lion Hotel Anaheim Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

You can totally find a better room at the same price else where. Not worth it. Everything was a no for me. Dirty, messy, smelly. Room service doesn't really clean, all they do is replace new towels and makes the bed. No replacing sheets or vacuuming the room. They didn't even take out our garbage! Totally don't recommend.

Frig didn't work....I have.insulin that needed.to be refrigerated. I requested handicap room when i booked the room, as I have trouble standing, no handicap room was reserved n was given a room farthest from elevator, The Front Desk was the rudest Employee I have ever encountered. Never stay at Red Lion ever again!!!! Remove them from Your website!!! ...

I recently stayed at the red Lion and it was an overall good experience, the area and hotel it self is such a warm and welcomeing area.

Room was clean. Staff was nice. Only issue was trying to call for room service and it took over 5 minutes for someone to answer.

The staff was great. The reason picking this place was due to the proximity to Disneyland. It worked out well. The hotel staff was great, in the time I was there they handled rude customers great. After check in was a bit disappointing. The room, although I could use the word clean it was just enough. I found cockroaches in the tub, but I am sure that happens due to the sewage line. However the carpet and sheets had old stains. Also trying to sleep was pretty hard I could hear everything in the adjacent rooms. Bedsprings, foot steps, and even the elevator going up and down through out the night. The breakfast was lacking, but it was free so not sure I can completely complain. I have stayed in other hotels which had better selection but near disneyland not sure many include breakfast.

Title says it all. But I will start with Pros: 1. Location isn't bad, they have a bus that stops right in front and drops you right at Disneyland. ($5 a day, $3 for kids) Rooms have fridge and microwave. Food and drugstores all in walking distance. The price, if you're on a real budget. Bring a lot of disinfectant wipes and pray. Cons: OUTDATED! First room was filthy to the point of extreme discomfort. The complementary water had been drank from! Extreme dust bunnies in the ac vent. They changed my room to a less filthy room but the second room's fridge was still dirty. I had to wipe down everything to feel comfortable. Listen, I've stayed in some bad hotels before, because how do you know it's that's bad until you stay right? Given the location of this Hotel and how much money I know they must generate, I would think they would invest more into it. It's in need of some serious remodeling and that isn't me trying to be uppidy about the situation but as far as competition goes, why would people walk the extra distance or pay the extra money just to have a clean room they feel comfortable in?

The wallpaper looks like bathroom tile, pillows are lumpy, and the safe wouldn't lock. It's ok if you walk in and go straight to bed, well except for the lumpy pillows... A step above a motel.

Staff was ok. Helpful when asked for help. Rooms are good. Bad water pressure in shower but very clean. No storage space so have to keep everything in your suitcases/bags. Nice quiet rooms. No neighbor or street noise. Easy walking distance from parks or have Art bus stop right out front. Nice pool.

Close to Disney, good value overall but several issues that make me give this a mediocre rating. Some of the staff at front desk didn't seem like they wanted to be there. The managers were good but it was hard to get a smile out of the rest of them, sad. Rooms while seem renovated still have a cheap motel feel to them both look and odor. The proximity to Disney is the key and not spending much time in the hotel. If you are just looking for a simple place to sleep and eating outside the hotel it's a decent choice.

The Red Lion is within walking distance to the front gate of Disneyland, with a "dart" bus stop out front and within a 5 minute walk to the "Disney" free shuttle parking lot. The Hotel staff were always nice and very helpful. The hotel offered free breakfast....that's true, but it seemed to be offered through a third party, which forced you to fill out vouchers every day for everyone in your party causing a LONG delay...finally many of the guests like us just left and did not use the free breakfast

Great location, nice rooms, friendly front desk staff, great pool. Restaurant/bar staff understaffed so long wait for drinks, but otherwise wonderful service.

The hotel is a little dated. However, the staff were great and the hotel was surprisingly quiet. The room was a bit dated with old furniture but managed to make it comfy.

Nice hotel. Closer to Disneyland then I thought which was a pleasant surprise

It is always an enjoyable stay and suits our needs. The rooms are clean, staff is polite and professional. The rooms are somewhat compact but the comfort and cleanliness are worth it.

This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in! First off, the room was dingy and dirty. The shower had water damage and mold. Housekeeping only came twice in the 8 days we stayed there. When we checked in we were charged an additional $40 per night as a "security deposit" even though the hotel had been paid in full. We were also over charged $124 from the price Orbitz gave us. The room above us must have been on their honeymoon because we could hear EVERYTHING all night long. It was impossible to get any sleep. Also, Orbitz said breakfast was included and when we went to the restaurant the first morning the lady told us (not very nicely) that it would be $11.95 per person and that there was no way breakfast would have been included. Orbitz also said the room had a refrigerator but it did not. The wifi was very slow and kept disconnecting from our phones. So frustrating! The second to last night our room keys quit working so we had to wait in line at the front desk for 30 minutes at 11 at night to get new keys. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!! Especially for the price!

I always stay at this hotel when I go to Disneyland. It's right next to the Disneyland parking lot AND next door to a Walgreens which is very convenient! Also next door to an IHOP! Aside from the hotel charging $40 per night on top of the hotel rate (which you get back at checkout) and charging $15 a night for parking I highly recommend staying here!

We had a clean and comfortable room, with a view of the San Gabriel mountains. We could also see the Disneyland fireworks at night! Pretty easy walk to Disneyland, and convenient location. Nice, but small fitness center and good outdoor pool which we saw families enjoying even in February. We got a deal with the breakfast included in our room rate, and the breakfast was first-rate. Overall one of the best hotels we've stayed in near Disneyland, and we would stay there again.

Beds were awful. Pillows were even worse. Hotel entrance/lobby looked nice but rooms weren't anything special.

Room was outdated and felt dirty. The shower drain was clogged and backed up when showering. The keurig coffee pot water was dirty. And the refrigerator didn't work.

Stayed at other hotels near Disney that were cheaper but better. I was expecting more from Red Lion was disappointed. Hair dryer didn't work, mom couldn't get coffee maker to work, breakfast was not free and nothing showed the price so a bit of a surprise when we just expected to grab something quick on our way out to Disney, but that could be chalked up to my mistake for not double checking prior to booking. Overall just disappointed and will not be staying at this hotel again. Staff was nice enough though.

Dust bunnies that flew when ac was turned on Horribly stain carpet Stains on bedding (ewwww) Some stuck on food (or whatever) on clock.....clock that you must touch

good if you only sleep there

The wallpaper looks like bathroom tile, pillows are lumpy, and the safe wouldn't lock. It's ok if you walk in and go straight to bed, well except for the lumpy pillows... A step above a motel.
