“Basic Motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Very basic Motel. Quite old, with very thin walls and older furnishings. But, if all you are looking for is a clean room, its an option since it can be less expensive than some other standard Motels close to the entrance at some times of year.
Wifi was $10 a day through a third party.
Standard room beds were very firm, but not too hard
Room was clean, and the cleaning staff and front desk were basically helpful
Walk was about 9 to 10 min walk to the actual Turnstiles that go into Disneyland Park,(there are many others that are in closer walking distance.)
Dollar Car Rental available with one way rental to LAX offered.
Parking $4 per day, pretty easy to find a parking spot.
Small gift shop with a small area of snacks available.
Television had a slightly fuzzy picture and some signal issues, which from other reviews seems to be common for the Motel.
Onsite restaurant which closes quite early, was closed before 8pm while we were visiting.
Pool table in the lobby area.
Area for free computer use and use of a printer

We stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was an excellent hotel for location to Disneyland and comfort. Rooms were good size - way bigger than relatives rooms at nearby Ramada Maingate. Pool area is great and it is a quick walk to the Disney entrance. Definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 530 which offered a balcony and view of California Adventure - excellent spot.

The rooms are a decent size but have a very old musky smell to them.
The pool is awesome! It is the best one on our trip so far!
Disneyland is just across the road. So the location of this hotel is very good.
You have to go to the breakfast buffet! Very good and a very good price! Definitely exceeded my expectations and the staff are very polite.

We stayed in block 4 on the ground floor for 6 nights. Well located and good services nearby, and a short walk to Disneyland.

Definitely not 5 star, but spacious, clean and very well-serviced & all the important things were done right.


Beds VERY comfortable.
Bathroom large, good shower pressure and temperature.
Very quiet (despite our room being directly outside the external stairwell)
The pool area was enormous, and the pool immaculately clean
The airconditioning was very noisy (you know, that clunky loud sort of noise) but very efficient - and provided great white noise for the kids to get to sleep!
In-room safe and decent sized fridge.

The TV was fuzzy and poorly tuned, but seriously - who goes to Anaheim to watch TV?
I would have LOVED to have free internet. $4.95US per 24 hours.

We had dinner on Halloween night (served by Mario) at the onsite restaurant. Was awesome food and service...and very reasonably priced. We really wished we'd made the effort to have the breakfast buffet too...next time....*dreams*

Check in and out quick. Thanks to Katelyn for going the extra mile for us...and to the "cute" vampire guy on Halloween night who provided great entertainment for both my young son and teen daughter.

Overall a good stay.

Room was very clean including carpet. We stayed in a deluxe room with two queen beds. It was very roomy. One of the biggest rooms we stayed at on harbor blvd. The beds were very comfy and pillows were soft. Bathroom was clean and always stocked. The rooms were very quiet. The pool was huge and clean. We went during a 3 day holiday and even with all the people booked there the pool never seemed crowded because of its size. There restaurant was good. Had breakfast and loved it! Even my picky kid found something to eat there. I would say this place is on the same level as park vue and the desert inn and suites but much cheaper!!! I will defineately come back!

Only con I can think of was no Microwave.

This is the fifth time I've stayed at this hotel. We keep coming back because it's cheap and close to the entrance - it's a five minute walk for an able adult, 10 minutes if you've got kids or grandparents in tow. This most recent visit was a little disappointing, mostly because the rooms were much more expensive than usual, almost 50% more. There was an event at the hotel Friday morning when we arrived, so perhaps that's why, but it seemed like all the attendees were coming from outside the hotel, so I'm not sure what was up with the price jump.
Other grievances - parking used to be included, but now is a separate charge, the beds are hard, the walls are paper thin, and the plumbing is such that I couldn't take a shower without getting assaulted by suddenly scalding-hot water halfway through.
All that being said though, I'll probably stay here again. It's by far the best price for such a convenient location. There's ample parking, unlike some of the other nearby hotels. The attached restaurant is good, although I haven't been there often as I usually do most of my eating inside the parks. For the area that it's located, you get a good price.

This hotel is very good for your money. If your a family going to Disneyland on a budget or traving on a budget it's great. Rooms are clean and staff are friendly. There is a small shopping center next door and a few food shops about 5 min walk. Disneyland is just across the road.
The only bad Thing is there really isn't much else around the hotel.
