“Only ok.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

First time to disneyland arrived at the hotel to no greeting, we stood there listening to i assumed wss the manager having a argument with who could of been a customer over 10 minutes. Finally young lafy walked over asked us if we been helped. no no service. we were a large group planned and booked months in advance. They could not find our reservation so they had to rebook again we stated to our agent we would like together duites due to we were families of young children and handicapped eldor grandmas with us. rooms 3 room same floor many rooms apart. Third family a floor above which made it hard for the children to have time together..we werent told about the breakfast at all. There was enough bathing supplies for a family of 4. The bed spread was dirty. The grandmas room tv did not work and the curtain would not close. to late when we returned to report. reported in the morning about all our concerns we were given box at the front desk with soap lotions coffee shampoo. Just handed to me. not i will get someone to bring you supplies. And noone to fix the issues. my hisband asked if we could have the fire pit turned on at the pool the front desk gentelman looked at my husband and said pardon, my husband asked again added my kids are in the pool can we. have firepits on. Should of see his face. oh he says your canadains. My husband laugh and said yes. Found out that they werent working. 3 days of stay there with 3 families and handicap grandmothers walking back and forth to disneyland..Hotel advertising that it is 1 block away not.. I asked again to the young lady who does no how to give customer service if there was a bus system she said for a fee you can get the art we purchased the tickets and wsited forty minutes for the art to show up in the heat.. standing in front of hotel.. that night we were not told the art system goes by no#and that it doesnt run after 10.. so guess what we are then walking with kids tired adults and handicapped grandmothers at least another 30min walk. We stayed there 7 nights to long. What a great first impression..We have return to disneyland and have seen and felt the experience of there is no place on earth as disneyland..So this. experience has not ruin it for us.. But the grandmas are done spent way to much money on a not a superior stay as they advertise. And our lovely friends who were separated from us. said overall they could not afford to take the chance that they experience this time. They will not be returning. Disneyland and California Adventure is were dreams are made so going there every day put a smile on our. face and made up for our not so great experience at this hotel..

We stayed here for 4 nights in May. Originally I wanted a king room but they were all booked out so took a 2 queen room even though there was just the 2 of us. The second bed was handy for keeping our bags on and made it easy to take things out and could lay clothes out neatly on bed. We had the fireworks view room and I think it was absolutely worth the extra money, we actually had a better view of the fireworks from the room than at the park.
The room was very spacious even with the two beds and there was enough counter space in room and bathroom to keep everything you want.
Breakfast was included in the price and was decent, what you would expect.
We were on the 8th floor and didn’t have any problem with noise, except for the noise from the pool.
All staff we encountered were extremely friendly and very helpful with whatever we needed. They went out of their way to assist. Check in and checkout was very quick and easy.
The location is good as can walk to Disney and lots of eating places. There is an ABC store just across the road and it is much cheaper to buy water from there than the hotel.
Overall this hotel was extremely good value for money and I would recommend.

Room Tip: Highly recomend the Fireworks view rooms.

We stayed at this location for a few days while visiting Disneyland. We stayed in the separate tower which looked like the rooms had been remodeled. We had a street facing room on the top floor but the air conditioner drowned out the street noise so we didn't have any issue getting enough sleep. The beds were reasonably comfortable and the accomodations were good for the price we paid.

The location is not really within walking distance with young kids so if you plan on walking it's slightly over 1/2 mile to get to the entrance of the park. The parking is also expensive considering the distance to the park. The only other negative involves the cleanliness of the room. The maid never replaced the ice liner the entire time during our stay and one of the nights we were shorted a towel. Overall, if you can get a good price this hotel is definitely worth the stay.

We loved this hotel! Clean rooms, friendly staff, and within walking distance to many Anaheim attractions. The pool was refreshing. We asked for an upgrade to a room with a firework view and it was granted for a small upcharge, as we booked this hotel on priceline. After a long day on the road it was a great treat to see the fireworks from the comfort of our room. The beds are VERY comfortable and the rooms are spacious (only complaint are walls are thin). This hotel is within walking distance of DIsneyLand, but if you have young kids I would recommend the ART shuttle. The shuttle tickets are purchased outside of the front doors and the bus picks and drops you off directly in front of the hotel. It makes it easier for tired feet at the end of a long day at Disneyland. Lots of eateries within walking distance. I wish that the breakfast was complementary, but with that said we planned ahead and brought our own breakfast items, so it was no big deal! We would totally stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded to a fireworks room!
