“Charming and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

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.

I stayed in the Pepper Tree Hotel for 4 nights. the bed is a little too soft and the fridge is a noisy one but overall you got what you pay for. Desk employees are very friendly and helpful and cleaning service is good. My advice for breakfast: skip it and go out, much better.

We enjoyed this hotel very much. It's a nice, quiet, charming place reasonably close to Disneyland. The staff is terrific. Both the morning and evening front desk attendants were very nice and accommodating. The hotel room has a small kitchen complete with microwave, refrigerator, pots, pans, utensils, etc. Really great. Beds were very comfortable and there's a nice buffet breakfast for only $3.00. I didn't like being charged for Wi-Fi, but we are told come January the fee will be eliminated (and we appreciate the hotel staff letting us know that). In any case, the Wi-Fi service was convenient and the connection was good. They seem to be owners that care about their property and customers, and we appreciate that.

I just loved this hotel, was perfect for our family.Quiet, close to Disneyland, shopping, was a true home away from home. The staff was very helpful especially Lorrisa, I will be back. I loved having a kitchen, to not be forced to eat restaurant every meal was a relief. We were close enough to Disneyland that we came to the room for lunch, rest, shower and went back, saved hundreds of dollars on that alone. I cant say enough good things about this place. Nice people in the area, everyone was nice and helpful. Grocery store right across the street. I saw no crime, and no questionable people in the area. I think i heard police sirens once the entire time we were there, thats better than were I live now.

Room Tip: We stayed in the back so we over looked the parking lot, was quiet, i heard a car alarm go off once...

Another trip to California, another stay at the Pepper Tree.

This time, we're here specifically to go to Disneyland and to DCA. As always, when we're in Anaheim, we stay here.

Since we made our reservations later than is customary, we wound up with a smaller room than usual. And that was fine.

Rather than the usual table near the kitchenette, there was a day bed. This was much better for our needs. We could put all the stuff we brought, plus the shopping results on the day bed. Also made it a lot easier to get everything packed up and ready to go.

This room doesn't have the standard room air conditioner in it. Rather, it has the 21st Century version of the old swamp coolers we had in the Midwest. The thing is a bit noisy, and most people in the delicate 21st Century aren't gonna like it. It would mean they would have to adjust, instead of having something handed to them on a platter. The noise didn't bother us. We grew up with swamp coolers, and we were tired.

The bed was nice and firm, and the pillows are the perfect thickness for us. Some folks would call them too thin, or not fluffy enough. They would be quite wrong.

The $5 per device wi-fi charge is still there, which didn't surprise me at all. I have wondered about this charge, and think I know why they have it. Wi-fi generally isn't all that cheap, and this is one of 2 hotels in the "chain". They don't have the volume of scale that Holiday Inn, BW, or any of the others have to defray the costs of the wi-fi.

The $5 is more than offset by the low room rates. Our room this time has a very large central area that is divided into a sleeping area and a sitting area. A new wrinkle is the flat screen tv. Last time we were here there wasn't a tv to be found. If the table had been in this room, there would have been a dining area. But, we're on vacation. No cooking, so we didn't need it. The day bed was much handier. There is the kitchenette. In a separate part of the room, there is a dressing area, with a double closet. And finally the bathroom. It is a bit cramped, but not bad.

Room rate was $67 a night. No discounts---that's the regular rate.

I have read some whining in the TA reviews about the wi-fi signal strength. It has always been great for us. I dunno what the whiners' problem is. Maybe they're watching HD porn?

So, as usual, we are pretty happy with the hotel. And as usual, we'll stay here next time we go to the Happiest Place on Earth..

Room Tip: Can't think of one. Haven't had a bad room here yet.

I really appreciated this hotel, it was very comfortable, the layout of the hotel was charming, the rooms spacious, large refrigerators. The staff was very helpful, they printed out maps for us. Itwas clean. The only thing I did not like was the discounted breakfast at the restaurant out front was really awful. I realize it is a separate business but it was not good.

My husband and I, and a friend, stayed here in late October on our two day trip to the LA area. When we booked, I asked for the courtyard with the fountain. My friend requested a regular room. We arrived after dark, and had no trouble finding the hotel, as I had read the reviews on missing the sign, so we were "on the lookout" for it. I was impressed with the Spanish-style of the property, It almost felt like being in a Spanish mission when you were inside. I loved that decor. We were pleased with the size of our room and I loved the walled courtyard with the fountain, which gave you a private, quiet area to relax. My friend's room upstairs had a balcony so she could also enjoy sitting outside.
My only complaint was the cleaning solution used in the rooms. In our first room, the odor was so strong, I felt like I was in a nursing home. When I asked the front desk to change our room, we were graciously given a new one. Perhaps housekeeping should dilute their cleaning solutions a bit. At least we knew the room had been thoroughly cleaned!
The breakfast buffet at the restaurant in front of the hotel was more than expected for the nominal price. So much better than the usual continental breakfast at most hotels.
Although the area was not along the "tourist strip" of Anaheim, we felt very safe. The property was close to the freeways for easy access to anywhere we wanted to go.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, even helping us map out our day in LA. If we are ever in the Anaheim area again, we will definitely stay at the Pepper Tree.
