We went on a family vacation to Disneyland and stayed here. It was about a block from main gate, so good location. The internal watermark is great for kids. Front desk was nice. Our family arrived separately and they were asked if we could have adjoining rooms. They were told we could, but that would delay check in. When they... More

This hotel was very clean and the staff was incredibly courteous. I would definitely recommend a stay here! My room was unfortunately located near the pool, so I could hear a lot of what the people there were doing.

Great proximity to Disneyland, great water park for kids. Rooms very bare bones with amenities and need updating but for the amount of time you will spend in your room, it is acceptable.
