Well, the rooms are clean and the playground is fun for the kids. Hot tub is a bit dirty. Every time the bubbles were on there was a layer of dirt on top of them. A bunch of us in the hot tub worked to get the dirt out. That wasn't very relaxing. Then, our alarm clock malfunctioned and turned...

We stayed here with our daughter and son in law and our 5 year old grand daughter. This hotel is about a third the cost of one of the Disney Hotels. It is across the street from the park, about a 7 or 8 minute walk to the gates. The rooms are large and comfortable. We were given connecting rooms...

Honestly the only time we were at the hotel was to sleep, shower and to get ready for another full day. However, with the noise from the freeway it was very difficult to get a good nights rest.

The title says it all...the location to Disney and the waterpark were the selling points to my family and myself. We were at the park(s) quite early, usually right when they opened, then we would come back, play a bit at the water area, have some food and then rest before heading back to the park(s) for the late afternoon...

Dear Tony T, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience with us! We are so glad our close proximity to the Disney Parks allowed you enough time to take a break from the busy Disney Parks and enjoy our Castaway Cove water playground. We are sorry your wireless internet connection was inconsistent. Next time,...

This is by far the best location to stay at if you are planning to visit disneyland or California adventure. The staff is great by far the most bang for your buck. Unlike the disney hotel witch charges you $150 for the stay and charges for everything from wifi to parking. This is the best hotel !!!!!

5th floor Room was of High Standard. Quality soundproofing, large luxurious queen beds and plenty of space. Waterpark was an instant hit with the kids. Highly recommend you put in on your list.

We were in building 1, on the 6th floor facing the highway. We were so impressed with the noise proofing in this room. Other than the odd rumble, we heard nothing. We all slept like babies...quiet room and super comfy beds. The room was spacious enough for 5! Plenty of space for teenage girls to spread out their stuff. The...
