We stayed here the last weekend of January, 2013. We booked their Resort Suite--Rm 410; two bedrooms and two bathrooms for 3 adults and 2 children. The first room as you enter is like a standard motel room, with two queen beds, a large tile/ granite vanity area and separate bathtub/toilet. The second bedroom, entered at the rear of the other room, has a California (extra large) king bed, a microwave and fridge in a cabinet, and another large vanity area w/separate tub/toilet. This worked very well rather than booking two separate rooms, which might not have been near each other. The two rooms are not large, but were very clean, well vacuumed and appeared freshly renovated. Beds were very comfortable. One can hear some noise from the corridor outside, especially rolling suitcases, but nothing loud at night while we were there. The second (king bed) room is completely enclosed and separate from the corridor, and very quiet. It can get stuffy, so we left the door between the rooms ajar for air cirulation.
The swimming pool was small but heated to near bathtub temp while we were there during rather chilly weather for Calif. A great plus was taking to kids to watch the fireworks in the evening from the fifth floor breakfast room. The included breakfast was simple but in that category of hotel/motel about what we usually find, with an added plus of peeled hard boiled eggs and hot biscuits and gravy. There are toasters, Danish rolls, (never saw the bagels mentioned in a review below), bowls of oranges and apples, as well as coffee, apple and orange juice, ice water, and instant oatmeal. We brought in our kids' favorite cereal and preferred a quick breakfast there rather than Mc D's, pancakes at IHOP or in D-land for $$$$. Was not overcrowded when we were there, usually between 7-8 am.
We would stay here again when on a short visit to Disneyland. For those planning a longer stay at Disney and surrounding attractions, and wanting more of a destination resort feel, perhaps this wouldn't be their choice, but Carousel Inn worked very well for us.
Most of all, we loved being able to walk across the street to the D-land entrance, and that is our priority when spending a few days at Disneyland.
