We arrived quite late on a Friday night. I put the things id brought for the children's lunches in the fridge to find out that it was not turned on. The bathroom was unpleasantly dirty and he noise from the 5 was bearable when the air-conditioning was on. I have stayed in quite a few hotels near Disney and I... More

If you are after budget accommodation within walking distance to Disneyland, than this is your hotel. Hotel was clean and friendly, had a view of the fireworks (restricted). The only downside is the waterparks are aimed more at little kids than teenagers. The rooms are small and very basic, but that is what you get if you stay in budget... More

We stayed as a family in June, and found the location perfect. After 15 hours plus traveling time. check in was efficient. My son could not wait ti get to the pool area, which we overlooked from our room. Found the location in relation to Disneyland great, within walking distance. For the price, you can't go wrong.

Stayed 4 nights, sat to Tuesday, and enjoyed the hotel very much. Easy to find and park, very clean and tidy. Came home for a break from the park each day, do a little swiming and water sliding and back to the park for the evening. Waterpark more geared to 8 and under, but perfect for our family. If walking... More

This place is amazingly clean, inexpensive and the staff are actually really cool. Highly recommend this hotel. The beds are actually very comfy and the pillows aren't bricks. I know, amazing. Wasn't expecting it to be that great for $150 but I was wrong.
