We just returned from a one night stay in a Premium room. Overall, the value can't be beat and all of the extra amenities make this a top pick for us.
Here are my impressions:
Location - they are not the closest motel in the area, but it is just about a half block farther than the ones right at the main gate. We traveled with our 6 year old and our 2 year old and we were just fine with the 7 minute walk to the entrance. The location is still fantastic.
Room: we got the upgraded Premium room and honestly, what a great value. The over sized room was really spacious for our family of four. We got a "welcome" movie popcorn bucket stuffed with granola bars, home made cookies that were so delicious, candy canes, and of course, microwaveable popcorn. What a nice touch.
With the Premium room, we also had access to their extensive VHS and DVD collection. At the end of the day, the kids loved watching our selection - Dumbo. What a touching movie! I forgot how good these Disney classics were.
They also provided us with spa like shampoo, conditioner, etc. it makes it just a little nicer and we liked the products.
The room (and bathroom) was spotlessly clean. The carpets look a little worn and could probably use a steam clean, but for the amount if traffic that this place gets, kudos to their housekeeping staff. Great job.
II have to add that the bed was amazing.
It was so comfortable and cozy. They have invested in these beds, I'm sure.
Breakfast: they serve a continental breakfast which does not come with eggs, waffles, etc, like you get at other places, but it was still great to have access to yogurt, fruit, coffee, etc.
Since we had the Premium room,we also got to make our breakfast selections the night before. We marked our choices and left it on the outside door knob as instructed. We think some little pranksters took our form because our breakfast didn't arrive on time the next morning. We called the front desk and they sent someone over right away. They took our order and hurried off.
We got our breakfast basket 15-20 minutes later and it was lovely. They filled it with a carafe of hot coffee, a carafe of OJ, and another with milk. We requested yogurt and cereal and it arrived perfectly, and was delivered with a smile.
We took advantage of the free Candy Cane Inn Shuttle on the way back from Disneyland and felt so grateful for the ride.
We did not use the swimming pool but the area looked really nice. The kids all seemed to be having a marvelous time.
I also loved the free wi-fi, free parking, and AAA discount. Nice.
Overall, this is our top choice for Disneyland trips. The location, amenties, great staff, and family friendly prices make this a place worth re-visiting. thank you!
