We stayed here for 7 days starting Jan 15, we got a great rate through Westjet Vacations. We didn't realize though that the beds were only doubles, very tight for 4, we had to get a rollaway for one of the kids and DH and I had to sleep in separate beds. There were no larger rooms available for upgrade. i was a little uncomfortable with being in a connecting room since they had people in the room on the other side and i could hear them, i don't think the hotel was full so they probably could have avoided putting people who aren't together in connecting rooms. Mattresses also need replacing, they are worn out and very uncomfortable. Housekeeping does a good job, rooms and hallways are cleaned daily, and they aren't loud or disruptive if you are getting a late start, one little pet peeve was that they didn't replace the glasses in the bathroom even though we had used them.
We had high hopes for the pool, it could have been great but was really a disappointment. The pool deck and pool were full of leaves, and were not cleaned once in the 7 days we were there. The hot tub had too much chlorine, and several people we met complained of getting rashes from it. The water in the pool we were told was supposed to be at 82F no way was it that warm. We have stayed in Anaheim in previous years in January and used the pool the whole time, even though the weather was warmer this time we hardly used the pool at all since it was dirty and cold. I know it's winter for them but seriously there were lots of other Canadians there like us who wanted to use the pool and were put off by the dirtiness. Also they want you to leave towels in the pool area, and walk dripping through the hotel?
The restaurant was cheap but pretty mediocre, we only had one breakfast and one dinner in it, because we were too tired to go elsewhere. Service was indifferent, at breakfast they brought the check when they brought the meal.
All in all, it was clean enough, and ok for a really cheap price, but I would have been ticked if I had stayed here at high season rates, we probably wouldn't stay again, there are better options in Anaheim, and you can always find good prices, especially in January.
