It was a nice place to stay for the night. The room was not bad. All we needed was a place to shower and sleep for the night. The park is right across the street and the staff was nice enough to allow me to park my car there while we went to the park. We were given a room... More

5 min walk to Knott's Berry Farm, location is good. However motel claims free wifi, which is not the case, there is no wifi at all. they claim year round heated pool and hot tub, which is untrue, it is a cold tub and pool. Continental breakfast is very limited, dont waste your time, Ihop is just down the street.... More

This has got to be the worst hotel I have ever seen. The room was filthy; dirty carpet, dirty walls, old soap in bath tub from previous guest, moldy shower curtain and hair on towels. This place was disgusting! Don't spend the money!

Don't waste your time or money here. My wife, our daughter and her 2 children spent Saturday June 14, 2014 at Knott's. Our grandchildren are 5 and 8. I looked at this motel and booked the 2 bedroom, with a seating area, family suite. From the outside the motel was clean, and very nice, but the room was terrible. First,... More

Just like other people who have reviewed, we got a different room than what we were told when we made the reservation. We got to the hotel early the day we checked in and they said our room wasn't ready until about 2:00 p.m., but were told we could park in the hotel lot and go to Knotts Berry which... More

I was told one thing when I called to make my reservation and things changed when we arrived to check in. Be careful what they tell you. Close to Knotts Berry Farm, but that is not a plus for us. Just needed a clean quiet room for the night.

This hotel has all of the former appearance of a Super 8, even though it isn't one anymore. Let me tell you about the positive first.......we stayed one night, a Friday night. The price was reasonable, the room was clean and it was in walking distance of Knotts Berry Farm. All day parking at Knotts Berry Farm runs about $20........and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Colony Inn for 2 nights in between travelling. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. We arrived early to check in and our room was not available so we were kindly upgraded to a larger room that was available at no extra cost. We had a King Room which... More

The room was big, but the comforters had holes in them and the pillows were waaay over used. The bathroom had mold, and the drapes didn't quite close all the way. We stayed here as a last minute decision while going to Disneyland, and we stayed 3 nights. The room was definitely sub-par, but we could handle it. The part... More

Wow. I'm not usually at a loss for words. But I am with this hotel. It's now known as the Colony Inn of Buena Park, not the Super 8. As another reviewer mentioned, yes, this hotel has long term guests and it created the feeling of staying in a run-down apartment complex. The room was clean enough, and although it... More
