After reading a ton of reviews about this property and the great rate that I found on Hotels.com we booked a three day Disneyland getaway.
We tried to get an early check in but the hotel was full, so we just went to Disneyland. We ended up checking in around 8:00PM. Check in was a snap. We ended up on the 8th floor looking away from the park. Because of the great deal we ended up next to the elevator, but No worries there.
The room was very nice, more than what I expected. It had a safe, little refrigerator big screen TV and a nice size bathroom. We had a king size bed. It was nice and comfortable. The room was very clean. Oh ya... the room had plenty of electrical outlet, something not found it a lot of hotels these days. This was nice because I had to do work while I was here.
The location is very close to the park. I'd say a 15 to 20 minute walk. We were lazy and opted for the bus. It was about a tie as which was shorter bus or walking. The bus pass cost $4.00 a day, less if you do three day or more pass.
Plenty of restaurants near by, but you will be paying resort prices. The hotel had breakfast included in the price of the room. It's a little buffet. Assorted fruit, bacon, sausage, eggs (scrambled) pancakes, oatmeal, cereal, apple and orange juice, and assorted toast. Not a bad breakfast. Way better than eating in the park or over priced I-Hop next door.
We had a problem with our safe. Engineering was up in a flash to fix it. Turns out they had to rip the safe out of the wall to fix it. Just goes to show you how safe the little hotel safes are! Hotel Engineers Danial and Philippe where AWESOME in recovering our belonging form the safe. Everything good we read about the staff is true! They are great!
In summary will we stay here again. We had just as good as an experience as we did in the Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel. Okay we did not get into the park early everyday and kids were not yelling up and down the hall ways. But we did get a great price on the room and found a great place near the park.
Hope this is helpful.
