Stayed Mon Oct 29 through Fri Nov 2. We are a family of four with two kids (8, 5). We stayed in a room with two beds on the 2nd or 3rd floor facing the pool in a non-Disney decorated room. The better rooms are the ones directly facing the park and upper floors - then you can get a view of the fireworks. Instead, we just walked out to the parking up and looked up.
The toilet and bathtub have a door that can be closed. The single sink and bathroom countertop is open to the bedroom (which causes a lot of light to flood the sleeping areas - good thing our kids don't care about light when they sleep).
The small fridge was convenient, especially since no breakfast is included so we stored drinks, etc. in it. No closet with doors, just a closet rod in the bathroom area. This property is more like a motel when it comes to the room itself but like a hotel because it has many floors. Rooms were sufficient for our purposes as we were at Disneyland every day. Having the McDonald's right there was super convenient. The hotel also has a small eatery in the hotel - prices were reasonable - plenty of breakfast options for under $5.
We did not swim in the pool, but many people did. So, if the noise bothers you (did not bother us), then request a room high enough or away from the pool area.
There is a daily parking fee. I think it was $10/day. While I certainly would prefer not to pay (some nearby hotels do not charge for parking), the cost was reasonable.
Front desk service was friendly, but they were very busy. We arrived 30 min before check-in. I was all processed and they took my cell number so they could call me when our room was ready. It was ready within the half hour.
Lastly, I booked this hotel through a Disneyland package from Costco. Everything was fine except that I didn't know that I would not get Marriott rewards credit for my stay. This stay would have given me enough nights to get into the next category of membership. Oh well.
Lots and lots of kids and families at this hotel with only one destination in mind - Disneyland!
Upper floors directly facing Disneyland can see the fireworks.

We do have rooms that specifically face the fireworks, but if you don’t have one of those rooms, it’s as easy and walking to the other side of the building to see then when they go off. Even after seeing the fireworks countless times over my 7 years here, it still makes me smile every single time.
We do cater a lot to families given how close we are to Disneyland. So there are children all over the place which can make the lobby really noisy at times.
I do apologize for no one telling you earlier about not getting points. To get Marriott Rewards points you have to book directly through the reservations hotline or online. Any reservation booked through a package or websites like Travelocity, Expedia, etc are ineligible to receive points.
I do hope you come back to Disneyland for vacation, and stay with us again!
