My daughter didn't want to leave the hotel because if the water playground! She loved it! Rooms were large and clean. We had a room with a door that leads out to a patio and over looked the water slides for kids. Loved it!! Staff was kind.

We stayed here with a large group, staff were very friendly. A 5 minute walk to Disneyland! The water park is great for kids and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. A great stay. Staff were very helpful with organizing transport and giving advice about the local area.
