The hotel was very clean and the room very large. The staff were friendly especially the man who helps with the bags, he was always extra helpful with the bags and directions! Check in and check out was simple, no hidden fees for us!

we booked this hotel due to the location, we are aware of the $14 per night parking. what surprised me is the $12.58 resort fee per night at check out. If you don't like hidden charge, stay away from this hotel.

Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry that you were surprised about the hotel’s resort fee.

We stayed here for six nights for our Disneyland trip. It was only a 10 minute walk to Disneyland which was nice. When we first entered the room we noticed that the main area was very clean, however, the bathroom could have been better-I found some hairs on the wall, a clump of toilet paper sitting in the bowel of...

I had an extremely comfortable room with everything you could need after a long day exploring the wonderful parks of Disney. The pool was very nice to relax in and the fire pits made for a wonderful way to cozy up and enjoy some smores. The parking charges are common for the area so I wouldn't fret about the $14/night...

For what I paid I was pretty happy with what we got. Stayed here for two nights while we went to Disneyland. For some reason we were given a wheelchair room..

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. I am sorry for the challenges that you experienced with your room type.

We had a great time staying at the hotel. The pool was excellent and the complimentary smores was a nice touch. The room was very comfortable and we were able to watch the fireworks from each night from our room. The overall hotel experience was excellent.

The hotel's proximity with the Disneyland and numerous dining places makes it a good bet. The hotel is kind of an old one (was told yo me that it was renovated in 2009). The staff is friendly and accommodating. Parking charges ($14) and no complementary breakfast ($15) makes it a pricy and comes close to other very good hotels prices.... More

We stay here for 2-nights this past weekend. I got a good rate through Priceline but it still wasn't worth the discounted price especially since they tack on $14.00 for parking and $13.00 for resort taxes per night. So you should expect to pay an extra $30 per night on top of the hotel price. First off, when we opened... More
