“Great option for the Disneyland Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Normally when visiting the Disneyland Resort I stay at the Howard Johnson hotel to take advantage of the annual passholder rates, however this time we were only visiting the park for 2 days and didn't have passes (plus it was Christmas Eve + Christmas Day) so it was too expensive to book there. Found the Anabella hotel on Expedia and looked it up on here and thought that I would take the chance.

There have been some negative reviews on here about bed bugs and rude staff however we never encountered either. The staff were friendly with every encounter we had and even helped us located the nearest mini mart at midnight; the rooms were big enough for the two of us and it was a quick walk via the Grand Californian to the park. I would consider this hotel again when staying at the Disneyland Resort, great value for money and great service/location!

It was our second time at the Anabella.

As I mentioned in my 2010 review, the Anabella is more like a Motel but the room are clean spacious.

We decided to book again in December 2011 and we are very happy!

The location of this Hotel is perfect. You don't need to pay 300$ and more a night to be near Disney. Anabella cost around 100$ a night and you only need to walk a little bit. We are 2 adults and it took about 10 minutes to be in downtown Disney. You must take the shortcut, but the staff will explain it to you. The parking is around 12$ but, you can be just in front of your room. We booked Bella Reyna room. It's standart room and it was just enough. These kind of room are small but spacious. The only thing, is the AC in the window near the bed. It can be a little bit noisy in the night.

I know the difference between a 5 stars and 3 stars hotel and the Anabella is as described on the website. It is worth the 3 stars.

We ate for breakfast at the Tangerine and it was very good. Big portion and small price, i liked it! :)

The staff was very gentle and funy with us. Everytime we saw an employee on the hotel site, he greeted us. This kind of thing are important for us. I like that employees are familiar and friendly. We are from Canada and our first language is french and they helped us with no problem and never laughed of my accent.

Room Tip: We like room at first floor because you can have the car in front of the window

The beds are comfortable and clean. Was not impress with the bathroom facilities, tile cracks and shower is small. The front desk to me were unfriendly. The grounds are pretty and the pool area are nice.
For me there are better choices to stay.

The staff at the Anabella Hotel made a great first impression. There was someone to greet us and opened the lobby door when we arrived. All of the staff were very nice and made us feel like VIPs. The room was very clean and spacious, easily accommodating a family of 5. Having the gift shop and restaurant on-site was very convenient, especially after a long drive. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfasts at the Tangerine Grill and poolside service. The hotel offers upscale services at an affordable rate. We liked the hotel being conveniently located on the quieter side of Disneyland. The walk was short to Disneyland and took us through Downtown Disney. Being on the same side as Grand California Hotel shortened the walk even more when we visited Disney California Adventures. The stay at Anabella Hotel definitely made this a very memorable trip for our family. We would definitely stay here again.

This is our 7th stay at the Anabella and as usual, everything was great. We're from New Zealand and staff remember us everytime we stay there. The rooms are lovely, beds are so comfortable and we love the short distance to Disneyland. We recommend the Anabella to all our family and friends and they always enjoy their stay at the Anabella just as much as we do. If there's anything we need, we only have to ask and our needs are seen to. We will be back as soon as we can be. We wish all the staff and their families a very safe and happy new year and thankyou to everyone we have dealt with at the hotel.

Room Tip: The Anabella have many different room types, so give them a call, explain your situation and just &q...
