We have stayed at a number of other hotels over the years in Anaheim and I enjoy this one if I can get it for a good price next time I'll be back. one thing to keep in mind that they do not communicate with you until you show up to check in they make you pay $100 cash or... More

Once again, I got the Red Lion Hotel by bidding on Priceline. My husband and I stayed for just one night. Unfortunately it was still expensive because of a large convention, but it was still about the cheapest option available. We didn't spend much time at the hotel at all this time around, but had much the same experience as... More

My husband, my 4 year and stayed at the Red Lion Hotel for a couple of nights visiting the Disney Parks. Hotel is situated in good location within walking distance from Disneyland.

The Red Lion in is across the street from the entrance road to the Anaheim Convention Center - an easy 5 minute walk. Basic conference-type hotel room with bar and cafe off the lobby. Rates very reasonable compared to Marriott/Sherator/Hilton. Parking $15/night. 5 minute walk from the Anaheim Gardenwalk for better dining/shopping. Keurig with coffee/tea pods replenished daily. Refrigerator.

Hotel was nice looking inside and out, but that was about it. We arrived late at night (about 1 am) and we were so happy to finally get some sleep (so we thought). My wife and I brought everything in un-packed and finally got the kids to bed. We finally got to bed ourselves. 4:35 am rolls around and I... More

I was on business and had some hesitations with staying in the Disneyland area (noise, kids, etc...). I was very pleased with the soundproofing these rooms have. Very quiet hallways, very clean rooms, comfy beds. I didn't eat on the property, but they have a buffet for about $10 and the IHOP is right next door. You are literally a... More

I waited about 20 minutes to check-in and the lobby had a terrible smell. The smell never went away during our 2 day stay. Breakfast was really foul and I believe we could have gotten better food at Denny's! Our room was clean but it was really dated. I wouldn't ever pick this hotel again and I think the pictures...

We had a week in Anaheim for a recent cheer competition and found the hotel to be right in the right spot. Our time was spent mostly between the convention centre where the competition was held and Disneyland. We would not hesitate to return as there are plenty of restaurant and supermarket options nearby and the hotel itself gave us... More

I rate this hotel terrible because of it's lack of communication. I purchased this hotel way in advance (February--> that's like 2 months ahead) through groupon. Got it for a good deal and like some of the previous customers has said, there is extra fees. I wasn't too worry about that because I would only be charged the extra resort... More

There are SO many hotels around Disneyland, that this creates an intensive quality competition amongst them. The advantage is for the guest!
