Why I gave them 4 stars? Here's why first, they have friendly staff, second they good guest service and third, they almost close in Disneyland. Everything is good and one thing they should change the perfume in the room because it smell weird. They have almost clean in the room and they have microwave and refrigerator. One thing is really...

First off, the is NO breakfast. Second, the sliding doors both had frigid artic air drafting through, room temperature when we entered felt like 40°F. The heater did counter the cold, eventually. Draft was enough to keep the heater blowing full blast, all night, with the fan in "AUTO".

We came to this property not knowing what to expect. We came off the Amtrak in Anaheim, hopped a OCTA bus for about 5 minutes and were here. Much to my delight, there was a laundromat around the corner. Much to my honey's delight there was a taqueria. The rooms are not super clean. But clean enough. The staff is... More

These people don't issue you a receipt for cash payment. I paid them a week's worth in cash and it took them 15 minutes before they were willing to finally hand me a receipt. Stay away! These people are new to the country, don't know the customs, and don't follow correct procedures. They are unwilling to cooperate in a friendly... More

The room that we got was fine to me. Nothing was really dirty about the room. It wasn't fantastic but it wasn't awful either. The lady up front was very kind and did a lot for us. For example, she lent us a microwavable dish for the microwave and even some plastic silverware. She was always willing to send the... More

The first room my boyfriend and I walked into was filthy. I had to pee badly, but one look at that toilet and I was repulsed. Urine and pubic hair on the seat. And to top it off, no toilet paper. The entire room looked like it had not been cleaned in days. My boyfriend went to talk to the... More

This place is disgusting. After finding this place after a long day at Disneyland my fiance and I couldnt wait to get some sleep. When we got into the room my fiance set her bags down and went to use the bathroom. She let out a scream we'll never forget. The place was crawling with roaches. It was horrible. We... More
