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... More

We needed a room for two nights to be near the Out-pt surgery center in Santa Ana, CA for my husband's knee surgery; This place was in the perfect location to convince stores, and the doctor, and made us very comfortable for what we needed in an Accessible room. Our only complaint would be the bathroom door; it was very... More

Maps are deceiving since it looked like the hotel was within walking distance but the of it wasn't bad at all. Within reason with car and right next to the freeway.

We stayed in this hotel several years ago visiting the Anaheim area it had been some time since we had been on vacation here so we thought we should stay we're had a good experience before. The hotel from the outside is outstanding and well manicured the inside all though it's clean it's showing its age. The carpets have some... More

After seeing several bad reviews before we arrived we were apprehensive to say the least BUT we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was nice, clean and updated. The bathroom was a very nice size. The free breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The area was clean and large. We have always stayed within walking distance to Disneyland so we had... More

We booked this hotel because we can always expect top-notch from Holiday Inn - at least we could until now. This hotel charges premium prices (almost $120 total for two people for one night, mid-week, off-peak) and they don't deliver. This place is in need of serious renovation. Pluses: Very pleasant staff, offered us bottled water at check-in (we had... More

The staff at this hotel make it gem, in particular Daniel. He was so kind, friendly and accommodating not just to my husband and I but to my kids as well. He made them feel welcome which is more than I could have asked. It wasn't just him though, the maintenance guy the housekeeping ladies, the other front desk associates... More

We stayed here four days and really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly. It was very quiet at night. The king size bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good with lots of variety of cereal, toast, bagels, fruit, pancakes and cinnamon buns. The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean. Room included a small fridge and microwave.
