“Very, very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

After a long day at Disney it was a treat to stay at this Holiday Inn. Clean, fresh, pool, hot tub, friendly staff, and wonderful buffet breakfast included. The beds were outstanding...soft but firm and very fresh.

Room Tip: We selected a building in the back for quietness.

My wife and I stayed here for a Disneyland vacation. The bed and location were fine, and the staff who greeted us on day one were very pleasant.

However, upon checkout they tried to charge us an additional $250 "smoking fee". My wife and I don't smoke, so I went down to the lobby to inquire what this was regarding. Then the front desk employee told me that on the previous day at 2pm, housekeeping walked into our room and caught my wife and I smoking marijuana. At first I thought this accusation was some kind of prank. My wife and I are deeply religious people, we don't smoke marijuana, AND we were at Disneyland the entire day that they claimed this incident occurred.

I tried to be reasonable and suggest this must be some kind of mistake (maybe housekeeping wrote the wrong room number down?). But the front desk employee insisted it happened. This was incredibly embarrassing for my wife and I as an entire lobby of customers could hear the Holiday Inn employees accuse us of breaking the law and smoking marijuana.

After arguing with them for some time, they eventually took the charge off, but still insisted I was guilty. This is not the way to treat your customers. Especially when they CLEARLY had accused the wrong people.They should be ashamed. I've tried calling, leaving messages, and I even e-mailed the general manager. But still no call back from him.

The location is excellent, walking distance to disneyland/downtown disney, allowed to leave car until midnight after checkout. The staff at the front desk was very nice. Cons: pay for parking, rooms are redone yet show age and have a mildew smell, can't get a reserve a specific bed size, and hotel restaurant is MORE expensive then food at disney! The price wasn't worth it to me.

Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your recent experience. I assure you we are addressing the issues you experienced with your sleeping room.
Most of our bookings do guarantee room types but there are some that do not and this is clearly stated at the time of booking. This is also true of many other booking sites. Also, our parking does have a fee but is practically the lowest of any full service hotel next to Disneyland at $10 per car per night plus tax. We do hope you would visit us again on your next trip to Anaheim. With our new Splash Zone opening soon we are certain you will enjoy your experience here.

Thank you,

Tom Van Winkle
General Manager

Front dest guy Kevin will go out of the way to make your stay as great as possible. Some of the best customer service I have ever received from a hotel. Jose the bar tender is extremely friendly and one of the best and restaurant has a very good selection of food choices. This is one hotel that I will recommend this one to anyone that ask where to stay in the area. Beds are very comfortable and rooms are very spacious and very clean.

Room Tip: Any room is great.

Affordable accommodation close to Disneyland! Rooms were clean but basic and there were renovations occurring! Overall decent accommodation that would be affordable for a family! This hotel had the best apple cobbler for room service that I have ever eaten!!

Kevin and the rest of the front desk staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. This was our first trip to Anaheim and we never once left the lobby without smiles and laughter. They all put in a great effort to make getting around easy and stress free. Our daughter left a stuffed toy on the bed while we were out and was overjoyed to return and find it tucked into bed by the cleaning staff. This extra mile attitude will have us here again the next time we travel here. It is an easy walk to Disneyland even with our youngest being 4 years old although she had to be carried back at the end of the day.
