We visit Disneyland monthly and have been staying at two other hotels and after recently becoming displeased with the regular hotels we decided to try a new one. We tried Red Lion out because we need to find a good pet friendly hotel to bring our kid to. Our puppy stayed home this time as we scouted the site, great... More

My family (me, husband, 2 kids and 2 dogs) just returned from a stay at the Red Lion Anaheim. I could not be more pleased with our stay. They gave our dogs cute welcome bags and we were able to enjoy our Disney trip without worrying about our dogs. The hotel was clean and relatively quiet. They put all pets... More

I use a lot of "traditional" Red Lion properties for work-related travel and meetings. They are generally "nice" and a good value. Some of the RL properties are getting pretty tired in terms of decor and soft goods in guest rooms - but over the years some refreshing has been done. That said, some haven't. All this by way of...

We just stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and it was great! The rate kept lowering on their website so we ended up with an amazing deal that included breakfast every morning. The breakfast is hot and fresh and plentiful and the wait staff is VERY helpful and courteous. The front desk staff is quick and efficient as well,... More

It has been a pleasure to have you and your family share your Disney vacation with us. I see that you spent more time at the happiest place on earth but hopefully next time you visit us you get to enjoy the amenities our hotel offers. I agree with you the distance between the hotel and the theme parks is... More

Thanks for the opportunity to speak freely. My fiancée and I were happy with the room and the location of the hotel. Everything was very clean and well kept. I only have two critiques, the first is that we were charged 10 dollars per night for "resort fees" though we didn't use any of the amenities that would fall under... More

We had another great stay at the Red Lion Anaheim! That staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and neat. It is an easy walk to Disneyland. Finally, you can't beat the price! We have stayed here many times and have been very pleased each time.

This hotel is always a good value. It becomes a better value when you sign up for the rewards club and take advantage of additional promotional rates. The parking lot never gets full like some of the other hotels in the area, and the staff is super friendly and helpful.

I've stayed at many hotels on South Harbor and this is by far the most updated and clean one. The staff is always very nice, the rooms and lobby are always super clean, and the room rates are good. It's a good walk from disneyland, but I'd rather walk two blocks than stay in a funky old run down dirty... More

Basic clean hotel, friendly professional staff, great warm pool outside--I was there for a conference and was able to unwind at the hotel. If in the area again, would stay there--not pretentious, but solid good quality. Every interaction with staff was very positive.
