My family and I were VERY pleased with the lady Maria that helped us with our stay. From the moment we walked in, she was very polite and helpful. Such a sweet lady. The room she accommodated us in was really clean. Overall a great value for the price and location. I will definitely be back

No problems at all during our stay (09/05/14-09/09/14), everything was great. The price is right too, perfect for those traveling on a budget! Reservations were made in advance (very courteous staff) and we had a very smooth and efficient check in process. Arrived to our room, which was surprisingly spacious and had everything we needed - and more. It's nice... More

You really get what you pay for. We had stayed at this hotel a few years back and decided to go again. We really were sorry we went there. The room was so filthy and smelled so bad that we asked the clerk to have it cleaned while we were gone. They shampooed the carpet so it was a little... More

Very good price. Great proximity to the freeways and Disney but very bad wifi, mediocre room up-keep and poor breakfast. Not sure if I would stay again unless we were on a strict budget, Id rather spend a couple of hundred extra for a week.

Very clean and spacious. Family friendly. Helpful/friendly staff. When we checked in, our room had a clogged sink. Staff quickly moved us and upgraded our room for the trouble. We are planning to make this one of our regular places to stay. Close to theme parks.

This is just an average hotel. Room is quite big for 2 queen bed room. However, furniture is old, bathroom door unable to close properly. Floor is dirty. Breakfast was just some cold bagel and frosted banana cake.

My 21 year old daughter and I didn't need a real fancy place as we weren't spending our vacation in California in our hotel. Perfect for what we needed. Staff were very friendly and eager to please.

If your plan is to find a reasonable place to stay while visiting Disney parks, this is a fair one. Clean, average room, nice staff. Breakfast is really poor. At night, when you come back to rest and you´re exausted, it´s really anoying when your key doesn´t open your room´s door, and it happened every single night. Besides that, average.
