“Convenient, but...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The best reason to stay here is it's close proximity to Disneyland. It's all one-story with a pool and the staff are friendly. It is well lit, but not secure and they do have a small continental breakfast available. There was a microwave and small cube fridge, but the alarm clock was unplugged. Nice to be able to regulate the room temp. The bathroom was small, not a big deal for one person, but there were ants around the sink, toilet and mirror. The toilet paper and tissue were the worst! The bed was made with dirty sheets that had tears in them and the pillows offered no support. As another reviewer mentioned, the beds are uncomfortable.

My family & I took a trip to Disneyland to celebrate a few birthdays. Now, we chose this hotel because it's literally two blocks from Disneyland. But the rooms itself were not great. The rooms reeked of smoke (even the non-smoking ones). The toilet was clogged. The beds were extremely uncomfortable; I ended up sleeping on the floor. Our power went out for about an hour. We had one channel of cable, whereas one of our other rooms (the exact same type of room) had about 100 channels. It was very odd. The experience at the hotel sucked. The staff was extemely friendly, which made the experience that less sucky but if you're someone with very little patience, this hotel isn't for you. But if you want somewhere close to Disneyland, this is the area you want to be in.

I've traveled all over the US and this is by far the worst place I've ever stayed...

Upon check in we were greeted by an Indian who spoke little English. The lobby is the size of a Kohl's dressing room. There is a small walk-up window on the side of the lobby. This leads me to believe the lobby is locked at night and the managers live in the room attached to the lobby. What a pleasure that must be.

The room stunk. The TV's were from the 1980's. The microwave was from Big Lots. Im guessing the phones at one point appeared to be white but could not tell through the yellowing. The AC/Heater smelled like burnt hair. The bathroom light flickered which was like being in a dance club with a strobe light. Perhaps this was intended due to hide the pincher bugs crawling around the green mold that lined the bathroom. Or perhaps it was to hide the showerhead caked in hard water deposits. Our showerhead looked like a cave formation. Or maybe they wanted to hide the black dirt on the bottom of the tub. The soap and shampoo provided were all mixed matched brands. It looked like the managers saved them wherever they traveled and put them in the rooms.

The Internet is a joke. It reminds me of dial up AOL. The door to our room barely shut. Upon opening it I noticed the inside frame was broken out at one point. I'm certain our room was subject to a drugs related search warrant by Amaheim PD. Too bad Mr. Magoo did the door repairs.

The contetentail breakfast should be banned by the health department. There is a counter with a sink in the small lobby. The coffee is more like darkened hot water. I'm pretty sure the pastries are actually hard tack left over from the American revolutionary war. Maybe the stains in my room were the aftermath of an upset stomach after the breakfast.

Nick, one of the proprietors, is a lovely man who goes out of his way to make you feel welcome.

Anything I asked of him was not a problem at all, from asking for some extra fruit, to getting another access key to the free wifi.

Let's face it you're not at Disneyland to sit in your hotel room, so why not save some money on it!?
Only an extra 200m walk to the actual Disneyland hotels... This is the place to be!

this hotel was disgusting! its like a very cheap motel. Right when you enter the room there's a strong odor! I can't tell what it is smells like dirty carpet, mold i don't know. I've never had any reviews with the hotel i stayed before but this is worst! Oh and don't be fooled with the continental breakfast, it's only coffee (which you'll wish you get it from a gasoline station instead), toast, donut, muffin thats it! One more thing beds are not comfy at all i dont have any allergies but when i'm inside the room i kept sneezing and ened up with a cold but when i'm outside im ok. I tell you spend extra $10 to anoter hotel. Worst 2nights!!!
