“Great motel for visiting Disneyland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Well run, clean, very quiet, comfortable motel within walking distance of Disneyland. I was amazed at the overall quality and comfort of this motel, given that it attracts many families with small, excited, and sometimes very tired children who are to or have visited Disneyland. Very little outside originating or room noise was evident on our room - and the motel was filled with children and students from a nearby high school. Comfortable beds, a clean room, a helpful front desk, and a somewhat spartan but quite adequate breakfast worked very well for my wife and me. And for those who don't want to walk, a convenient shuttle bus every 30 minutes to take guests to and from Disneyland.

Location, location, location!!!

Expcellent if you have an upcoming event at the Anaheim convention center, also if you plan on going to Disneyland. Rooms are OK, service is great, breakfast simple but good. Free parking and internet a plus. Would come again for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the reception

Our family loves this place! The people are the best! Everyone from the front desk to the shuttle drivers are friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location or the price. Also, they DO NOT charge for parking, as all the others do.We try to stay a few times a year, but especially in Feb. for our Grandsons Birthday. He turned 14 this year, and can't wait for next year. The rooms are always clean, and have plenty of room. I especially like that the sink is seperate from the tub and toilet. the kids love the pool and spa, and everyone loves the breakfast. Thanks again for a great time. Oh, I forgot a family picture we had taken at a nearby resturant, called the hotel, and got it in two days! Friendiest hotel staff in town!

My wife and I just returned last week from an 8 night stay at Candy Cane with our grandaughter. As usual, we loved the staff, the facilities and kindness of everyone there. From the shuttle drivers to the front desk staff and everyone else- it was another great Disneyland experience, in part because we knew we were coming back to our favorite place to stay after a long day in the Parks. This is and will continue to be our hotel of choice in Anaheim. It is older but very well maintained and clean. If you haven't stayed her before- give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I previously stayed in a standard room. Since we brought our 3 kids on this trip, we had to get the large, premium room. The room is located in the back away from the street. It's about 350 square feet. It's small room for a family of five, but the amenities make up for it. The room includes breakfast delivery, mini fridge, microwave, snacks (the cookies were good), movie rental and a late 2pm check-out.

Though the walk to Dland isn't far, the shuttle service is convenient especially after a day at the Parks. There are many places to eat in the area. Subway is across the street. iHOP, Dennys, Tony Roma and the Garden Walk mall are within walking distance.

The staff is nice. However, the woman who checked us out needs to put on a friendly face even if she doesn't mean it. If she bothered to ask how our stay was, I would have had some kind words at that time, and suggested that she smile more.

We had a pleasant stay. We would recommend the premium rooms.

Our last Candy Cane Inn review was for our October stay. Since then we speak Thanksgiving there and Feb 1st - Feb 4th. We have also booked our spring break trip, March 30-April 6. We love the CCI.

Why? The staff. When my son walked in James at the front desk welcomed him by name. When our room is not available, they allow us to park there and walk to the park. The hotel is always clean, the pool is always pleasant and everything we need is nearby. The walk to the park is easy, the I-5 is right there and a Target is just down the road. But it really is the staff.

We are counting the days until we return.

We stayed here for two nights on a trip to Disneyland. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was very quiet. The only minor issue we had was a strange smell in the bathroom. There was a drain in the floor and we suspected the smell was coming from there, so my husband covered it up and it seemed to take care of the problem.

This place is on the same side as Disneyland, about a block or two away. You can easily walk there, but they have a shuttle that drops you off and picks you up. It leaves the hotel every 30 minutes on the hour, and picks you up at Disneyland at the 15 min. and 45 min. mark every hour. After a full day in Disneyland, it was nice not to have to walk back to the motel.

Their continental breakfast is minimal but a nice start to the day. They had fresh fruit, bread and bagels, danishes and donuts, muffins, and I believe they also had cereal. I found the staff to be mostly indifferent. They weren't rude by any means, but they didn't seem overly friendly either. With the exception of one very nice lady at the lobby desk, most of the employees need a refresher course in how to greet customers with a smile.

We will definitely choose this motel again when we go back to Disneyland. The free shuttle, free parking, and of course those free mini candy canes won us over.
