Our 1st room was in bldg 1, 7th floor. Very noisy and too bright. Changed to 5th floor and it was great! They even refunded us $100 for inconvenience. Water park was awesome. Quick walk to Disneyland. My grandma daughter turned 7, an amazing memory.

We had a great stay. The children had a great time at the waterpark, so thankful they reopened the slides later in the evening so they could have some fun and expend some of their energy to get a good night's sleep before Disney the next day.

The following is the letter I just sent to the General Manager: Hello, I am writing for follow up regarding the incident of my 14 year old daughter getting stuck in the elevator in building 2 on the morning of 8/20/2015. I am unsure what staff reported to you or if you are aware of what occurred. First of all... More

We always wait until the lower seasons when the prices are 30-50 dollars cheaper. I understand supply and demand during peak seasons so we tend to stay away. Some of the rooms are dated, the 5 can be loud and not even a morning fruit offering does not stop us from repeating. Great customer service, free parking, free wi-fi and... More

The service was fantastic, when my wheelchair broke, the staff were fabulous in helping my husband to repair it. We wouldn't hesitate to strongly recommend the hotel or to stay there again!

We stay here often and this particular time wasn't that good. People above us making so much noise and the large pool felt like the water was not filtered. We did tell the front desk but nothing happened. We might have to really think if we will stay again.

My kids loved the water park! It was perfect for our girls. As for our room, it was ok. It is definitely outdated and when we walked in, it smelled of smoke. I did go to the front desk and they brought in an air purifier but I could still smell the stale smoke. Bathroom was very small. In regards... More
