I had a one night stay at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Garden Grove Anaheim South. The reason I had chosen to stay here were due to the location and for the shuttle to Disneyland. The shuttle part was not what I expected and I’ll address that a little later. The hotel is right off the 22 freeway and... More

Clean, front staff gentleman could be a bit more friendly and informative but rest of the staff were friendly. They provide free parking, 10 mins from Disney, breakfast complimentary and basic we enjoyed, rooms big with 2 queen beds, brilliant shower, tea/coffee maker, heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the parking was free and the breakfast was good. Most hotels around Disneyland do not include a hot breakfast so we stayed at Holiday Inn to save money. We really enjoyed our stay.

We're currently staying for a wedding in town. We only stay in Holiday Inn Express so can compare hotels within the chain. The staff are great and willing to help. The breakfast is standard HIE. The facility is worn. If they could just replace the carpet and paint doors it would make a huge difference. The carpets in the hallways... More

The staff (front desk and housekeeping) and breakfast really make this hotel! Beds are comfortable. However, it's not in the best neighborhood. Although we didn't experience any problems we didn't feel like we could freely walk down the street after dark. There wasn't much to see around this hotel other than a trailer park and a very "worn looking" neighborhood.... More

We stayed here for two nights because it was pretty close to Disneyland and more affordable than some other hotels in the area. The room was clean but the beds were not comfortable which is the most important thing. Also the walls are so thin I heard some guy talking on his phone at 6am every morning! I could clearly...
