This is a fairly large complex with a pool and a small water park which the kids loved. There is a guest laundry with coin operated... More

A fantastic hotel, especially if u have younger kids and are visiting in the warmer weather. We had a few minor issues upon check in into the room and they were fixed within minutes.

Locations is good only 8 min walk to parks. Rooms were a good size with fridge, coffee machine etc. Coin operated laundry and 2 pools. Mimi's across the road if you want to buy breakfast etc. Plenty of restaurants, supermarkets etc along the road. Walmart grocery store only 15 min walk away.

This was a very nice hotel, convenient distance to Disneyland. We chose it based on friend's recommendations and I would stay here again. The water park was fabulous, my kids loved it. Rooms were clean, if a little tired (we were in a building currently undergoing renos so that might be why)

Good location, not far from the Disney parks. Close to restaurants and highway. Very noisy during the fireworks, felt like they were going off in the room, woke sleeping children (would have been good to have a heads-up the first night we were there).
