We have been to Disneyland at least a dozen times and have stayed at the Grand Californian the past 2 visits. The location of this hotel makes a world of difference in how you spend your day! I know it's expensive...and we are not rich....but if you want a great experience, save up your money and do it. You don't... More

Outstanding location. First classic every way. You spend a little money but you get your money's worth. Fun for grandkids. We had 9 ages 2-11 and the different swimming pools were a big favorite after early morning trips to the theme parks.

We loved staying at this Disneyland onsite hotel...you're literally right next to the park! It was very convenient staying here, as you could easily return to the room to rest. It was great to be immersed in "Disney magic" the entire time we were here. Beautiful hotel...we all really enjoyed it!

Our family of 5 stayed here for 5 nights and we were thrilled with the room size!! Usually we feel crammed into a hotel room unless it is a suite, but our room had a queen bed and twin bunk beds with a trundle. All 5 of us were able to sleep comfortably and have room to move around the... More

We had 13 people in our family staying here for 3 nights. EVERYONE we encountered were friendly, fun, personable and awesome. The look of the hotel itself is GORGEOUS. The hotel has a ton to offer besides access to Disneyland and California Adventures. Right next to Downtown Disney, that was handy. The pool was very fun. rooms had plenty of... More

This past march we had an awesome stay at the Grand Californian! With over 20 trips to disney WORLD under our belt, we had high expectations for Disneyland and it's hotels. We chose Grand Californian for it's proximity to both parks, and were so happy with our decision. We loved feeling fully immersed in Disney. . . we stayed 4... More

We chose this hotel based on convenience and location to the park as well as how great the rooms looked online. We stayed on property in Disney World and had a spectacular experience and expected the same in Disneyland. This was not the case in the least. The staff we encountered were uninformed,and not interested in our inquiries. The room... More

My husband and I were able to snag a room within hours of check in. We continued to call reservations and we got lucky that someone cancelled and we got it. We were already planning on going to the park and hoping we could be able to get a room and we did. We were in a double bed room,... More

We've stayed at the Grand Californian and across the street from Disney at popular hotels/motels. With 4 small children, we keep coming back to the Grand Californian for its location, comfortable, vacation-like atmosphere and Disney charm. You pay for the convenience and the experience but it's worth it. When you/the kids hit a breaking point at naptime and bedtime this... More

We visited for a weekend and had a nice stay. This is a fairly standard four-star hotel, by my standards. The rooms are typical size, quality and amenities for a U.S. hotel in this price range. Prices vary greatly depending on demand, of course. Service was "Disney normal" which is to say competent and friendly though a bit mass produced.... More
