We have stayed numerous times at the Red Lion, and this time was equally as wonderful! Thank you to the staff for making our stay so pleasant and enjoyable! Breakfast was wonderful and the room was great! Thanks again!

Definitely one of the worst stays at a hotel near Disneyland I have had. The room was very loud. There was a loud whistling sound coming from the door. The doors were very heavy and slammed closed so you could hear when anyone around you came and went. We could hear everything that our neighbors did which was often at... More

My husband and I recently spent five days at the Red Lion Anaheim celebrating a special birthday for my husband. We arrived early and were able to check in, which was very nice. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is a little "tired", but very clean and presentable. Each day our room was nicely cleaned,... More

Ideal position. Nice and Clean Rooms. Great attention to small but appreciated particulars in handling the room. Good breakfast. The only problem is the noisy air conditioner (but you can shut it down for the night).

Thank you Emily😃 you were amazing!!! Pros: TV has Disney channel. Coffee and hot tea were great. Pool was really nice and towels were available at entrance. Maid service everyday for coffee cups & refills, etc. Large luggage carts were available in lobby. Avoid ihop next door it's expensive. Cheesecake Factory 8 minute away and so worth the walk.

I decided to try the Red Lion Hotel this time. Prior to booking, I reviewed the comments on Trip Advisor so I knew what I was getting into. Upon arrival at 2:30 in the afternoon, I was able to be checked in and didn't have to wait. The clerk was able to correct the room rate that was wrongly documented.... More

Upon check in the receptionist was friendly and efficient, but our reservation was lacking all of the information I provided regarding traveling with a dog making our check in process longer than necessary and frustrating after many hours on the road. We found it difficult to sleep with a loud door being open and closed directly outside of our room... More

As we were in Anaheim to visit the Convention Center the Red Lion was an excellent choice. We could easily walk to the convention centre. Service was great. There was a problem with our room but it was solved right away.Good value for money.

I give it a poor rating because it is run down. I've stayed in many other red lion hotels and this is the worst. It is probably the excellent location to Disneyland that they don't feel a need to update the facility. Also, I really didn't like having to pay for parking on a multiple night stay.
