I am long overdue in writing this review, since we stayed here in Sept. 2011 to meet up with relatives who were coming down for a Disneyland trip. (I had to put 2012 as this wouldn't let me go back that far!)
The grounds are picturesque and very SoCal...that sort of California mission style with lots of adobe, lush succulent plants and pretty fountains. Entry way is very dramatic with a high ceiling and dark wood accents. The pool area is great (although I wish they had a Jacuzzi). Plenty of seating and they offer gas grills for the convenience of their guests. A unique pair of stone turtles perched poolside spit streams of water into the pool for added fun.
Location is nice, directly across from a supermarket and there is a restaurant adjacent to the hotel that has good grub at reasonable prices. The hotel gave us vouchers for a free drink each night of our stay.
The room was delightful. Luxurious beds. A great layout, including a sitting area and a full kitchen with a full-size fridge and stove. The kitchen decor was very funky and colorful, which we loved, and a nice variety of utensils and cookware were provided. Our unit had a small but serviceable patio. The light out there was broken upon our arrival but they sent somebody out right away to fix it when we called.
The single negative about Pepper Tree (IMHO) was that the property advertised "Hollywood movie posters" as part of the decor. Turns out they were ALL for Arnold Schwarzenegger flicks. If he had only been an actor and had never been governor of our fair state, this probably wouldn't have bothered me as much as it did, but I felt like, in the context, it was kind of a political statement that I didn't feel belonged in an establishment where I was paying to stay. Left sort of a bad taste in mouth that sullied our otherwise completely enjoyable overnight at this property.
All in all, I felt like this hotel provided a pretty decent bargain for the money. I would definitely return to the Pepper Tree and have recommended it to friends for visiting the Anaheim area.
