“Convenient, helpful, affordable, excellent service, only 10 min walk from Disneyland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

I have had a very good experience with the hotel , after leaving some clothes behind, they have been extremely helpful, in assisting their return. Our three day stay was great, we were upgraded to a room with a small living area, as we were sharing with 3 adults. The location is fantastic for getting to Disneyland and California land. The breakfast was generous, and the staff at the front desk very helpful. An excellent place to stay.

We've been coming here for nearly eight years. Always have a wonderful experience. Great location (baseball, Disney, beaches, etc.), clean rooms and friendly staff. Don't forget the free breakfast. What more do you need.

What a wonderful hotel. We were there for spring break, so it was busy.. but the staff still went out of their way to make sure your trip was wonderful!! This was our children's first trip, and a surprise trip at that. They put us at the back of the hotel, we surprised the kids with the news while watching the evening firework show.

There is 2 adults, and 3 children in our group. It was perfect!! Rooms are very clean, well kept.
Breakfast was great to go pick up each morning, it had lots of choices. And close by it was an easy walk each day, we came back to the hotel for lunch/ break each day before enjoying the evening shows.

Would definitely stay again, and would tell friends too.

Room Tip: back of hotel is quiet.. as well as you can see the sites, rides, fireworks from disneyland

We recently stayed here for a last minute mid week trip. When we arrived about 1pm and tried to check in was told no rooms were available and to come back after 3pm. They did however offer us a parking pass and got us all signed in took care of last minute ticket we needed as well as ART (bus) passes. We went and did some shopping and returned about 2pm, yes still early but after driving 6 hours really wanted to get into a room before heading to disney. The clerk remembered me by name when I walked in which was a plus to me. The clerk began calling housekeeping to find out what rooms were available and there were a few ready to go! She then told us she would upgrade (first time ever upgraded) us to another room that was ready. I was pleased with this, once parked and unloaded we headed to our room! We were amazed at the room when we walked in, it was full suite with living room, kitchen and balcony! Perfect for us!

The hotel is close to Disneyland about a 20-25 min walk from room to gate! We did use the bus several times since grandma was not up for the walk, it was close and easy to use bus also. Great option to have if you have young ones or older family members.

The breakfast was a great start to the day and much more than most hotels close to Disneyland. The parking and wi-fi are also free, which is not always the case at hotels near disney. The entire staff that we had any interaction with was always friendly and helpful! There is also a small restaurant and bar on property.

We are pass holders and have stayed at many properties near the parks, this is now probably going to be our first choice when booking our next trip!
