We have visited Disneyland may times and this is our favorite place to stay. The hotel has more of a resort feel with all of the separate buildings, pathways, and 2 pool areas. Makes it easy to relax after a day in the park. Having Mimi's Cafe next door is a bonus, too!

We stayed here for 5 days at the start of a 3 week USA vocation and on the last day of our holiday. Good: Perfect location. When you see the disneyland entrance street crowds you will appreciate that this hotel has a 5 minute buffer from that. Clean large rooms - initial concerns about closeness to freeway were not a...

We stayed here for one night. Nice pool, courteous staff. They willingly let us checkout late. Hotel was a little bit old,but overall not a bad place near Disneyland.

The room was clean, staff was super friendly and helpful. Only a short walk to Disney. Hotel had a nice pool and fun water park for the kids. Fridge was small, but free coffee was a nice touch. A little loud in the rooms from other guests, but no road noise.

Pro's: The water playground is awesome and provides hours of entertainment for the kids. Our little family LOVES staying at hotel's with bunk beds. The staff was very curteous and helpful. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Parking is free (included in the rate anyway). The room we stayed in had a small fridge and microwave. They are an eco-conscious... More
