I was so apprehensive about staying at the Carousel Inn and Suites due to the past reviews that I had read but ended up being pleasantly surprised. We arrived 20 minutes prior to check-in time and our room was ready. I inquired about valet parking and what they do if they damage my car and the valet attendant appeared and said we could park our car ourselves. We still paid the $9/night fee but I was relieved that my new car wouldn't be sandwiched in between other cars. The room was just as pictured. It was clean, and stocked with towels, toilet paper, and kleenex. The refrigerator was unplugged but that was an easy fix. The beds/pillows were comfortable and the room was surprisingly quiet. The privacy doors between the room and the sink/bathroom area were nice to separate early risers from those that chose to sleep a little later. The breakfast area was bigger than expected and the choices were minimal but how can I complain when it is complimentary. There were cold cereals, oatmeal, white and wheat bread, biscuits/gravy, hard boiled eggs, fruit, assorted donuts, danishes, apple and orange juice, and reg and decaf coffee.
At the end of each day, we came back from Disneyland to find our beds made, t.p., kleenex, and towels re-stocked. The last night it sounded like we had a herd of elephants living above us, but the stomping didn't last long and perhaps we sounded like that to the room below us.
I am so happy that we did not experience the unfortunate events that others travelers had. I expected our stay to be a disaster but I'm glad we gave the Carousel a chance because it was well worth it.
