“Enjoyed the location and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I recently stayed here because I was running in the Disneyland half marathon. I usually stayed at hotels on Harbor Blvd. but decided to try Stovall's. I was pleasantly surprised with how much closer to the half marathon venues it was than I thought. It was just across the street and it seemed faster since I didn't have to go through the security check at the entrances of the parks. A huge plus! I asked for a quiet room since I needed to try and get some sleep the night before the run. They were very accommodating and I got the last room on the west side of the property. There were no adjacent buildings, away from the elevator and a wall blocked the closest stairway. Needless to say, it was quiet! The room was very spacious with large counter space and clean!

Check in and out was very quick. They even have a later check out than the other hotels I've stayed at so I didn't feel too rushed after my run to beat the check out time. I had more than enough time. There are several restaurants near by within very easy walking distance.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely return!

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your business. Congratulations on your marathon. This year the Disney Marathon was right in front of us. Which a lot of guests were excited to know that they just had to walk across the street to check in. I glad that we were able to accommodate you with a quite room. We hope to see you soon!

Definitely very close to Disney - can watch your fireworks EVERY night from hotel if you wish if you are staying in a room POOL Side or just walk round to pool side or main road or the many restaurants on the main road & fireworks will go off at 9:20 very night!!!!
15/20 min walk to Disney - but if u have small kids & they will be tired at end of day you can drive to the park. You Park in the Disney Car park on Magic Way ( you drive down it from our hotel way then have to do a u turn at some lights then pull into it on left) - about $15 a day, then u get Disney tram from there to & from park entrance- very easy..!!!
Hotel pool is near road opposite rooms & car parking facilities but ITS NOT A PROBLEM LIKE YOU MAY THINK!! dont let it put u off !!
If your just putting head down, dont want 5 star luxury & are out most of day its no problem..!! Road cant really be heard & you cant see pool area really passing in a car. The groundsman cuts hedges around pool area into DIsney Shapes- really cute for kids!! BUT If you want kids to b safe running to pool they need to pass all cars parked & moving in hotel grounds so don't let little ones run free without watching. However once in pool area - 2 pools by the way & 3 Jacuzzis- its clean, well stocked with lovely clean white towels everyday & shower/; toilet facility &tables & sunbeds and you can only enter with your room door key!! It is also surrounded by an iron fence all way round so kids can't just get out so are safe.
We had 3rd/top floor facing Disney itself at farthest end of hotel -furthest from reception. It was the 2nd room in from that end- was great- good view of pool & disney & stair well in front of us. Lift also available. Was brill !! The last room next to us was UNDER a bit of canopy tho & really had no view so dont take last room on 3rd floor in front of pool if u want to SEE!!!
Reception staff very very friendly & curteous at all times- however breakfast was a bit like a free for all- room not big enough & cos breakfast was in with price everyone bundles in. We learnt to get stuff and take it back to our room- even more than one trip sometimes! It served cereals, toast, eggs, pancakes, cakes, fruit sausages coffee juices etc etc
Rooms comfy beds tvs & clean nice bathrooms showers/ bath. Air con bit loud but works brlil & you get used to it. Needed it as it was 110 every day we were there as they were having a 2 month heatwave- its usually about 75/85 degrees we were told!!!!
Hotel staff could organise trips & advise on everything :) Restaurants forever outside hotel on may roads ond at night the boulevard of pine trees are whatever the trees are are lit up with thousands of fairy lights letting you know you're near DIsney!!
A good tip- discount ticket place neasr Tony Romas Steakhouse does great deals and are VALID!! But if you want a Citypass - we advise you to book in UK as it is CHEAPER!!

Room Tip: Opp pool on top floor furthest away from hotel entranceas but 2nd to last room NOT last room. !!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay was at the Stovall’s Inn. We appreciate your business. Yes, you can view the fireworks while enjoying the pool. If you don’t want to drive over to the Disneyland parking lot you can take the ART shuttle for a fee. Part of our renovations is to expand the breakfast room so we can offer more sitting spaces for our guests. We hope to see you again!

A truly fantastic location and service befitting it. As the management seem to like to say... Legendary (well not quite but almost).

The Excellent:
- 5 to 10 min walk to Disneyland / Disney California Adventure (It's only a 2 to 3 minute walk to Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel!)
- Room was spotless, large, attractive. There was a microwave and fridge. Air Conditioning worked excellently.
- For a complimentary breakfast, the offerings were varied and tasty.
- The bed and pillows were fantastic.
- Pool area was spotless large and filled with topiaries.

The Bad:
- Internet was almost unusable. Even opening google took about 5 minutes to load

Look at a map before you go. It doesn't get much closer. There are many many Disney hotels in Orlando that have a FAR longer walk to a park than this hotel has to Disneyland Resort's two parks. If they sort out the Internet there'll be no excuse not to stay.

Thank you for taking the time on your review. We appreciate your business. Indeed we are a 5-10 in. walk to the main gate of Disneyland through Downtown Disney. I will let housekeeping know what a great job they are doing in the rooms. I’m glad that you did get a chance to enjoy the extended continental breakfast. I will definitely check on the internet and see what could be the problem. I hope that this doesn’t stop you from staying with us. We hope to see you soon!

When we checked in, they had honored our room requests so we were very relieved to get a non-smoking room away from the smoking section. Beds were decent but we're pretty picky on comfort with two of us having bad backs. Lots of pillows which is nice. Our room was very quiet - we didn't hear a thing so we slept great! Usually we stay in the hotels along Harbor so we were concerned the walk to/from this hotel may be a little far but it wasn't bad at all...just about 10 minutes and a much more enjoyable walk that the one to and from our past Harbor hotels. We were usually the only family walking along the quiet tree-lined path. The room was updated, we liked that the bathroom had the shower/toilet area separated from the counter/sink, the little fridge and microwave were a plus and the breakfast was nice to have although extremely crowded and could get pretty messy. The staff was great, from the front desk to the cleaning crew to the nice (and very busy!) ladies who kept the breakfast area stocked. The pool area had pluses and minuses but when it was 110 outside all we needed was some cool water to jump into! There are two pools, not very busy, but right along the road without any privacy foliage and there was a guy smoking his cigar (yuck!). Someone was out stocking towels and checking the restrooms when we were there so they keep the area up which is good. Overall I think this is a great value for a family and we would stay there again!

Room Tip: Top floor room was very quiet. There are smoking rooms so request non-smoking if you're not a s...

We stayed for 3 nights in early July, we booked three rooms and all were quite comfortable. It is in easy walking distance to Disneyland/California Park and Downtown Disney. Also the shuttle is straight out front for weary legs. There are heaps of restaurants within easy walking distance. I would recommend this for a family wanting value for money and really really comfortable beds and a decent shower. The breakfast buffet was Ok, its not 5 star but for $80/night for 3people certainly what I expected...you could get fresh fruit and yoghurt, probably just a wide range of hot food.

This was my first Air Miles booking and although the proximity to Disneyland makes this property a good choice, there are far better options close by. The service was non-existant. When we were offered a room change due to the non-functioning a/c unit, TV and internet, the luggage cart was pushed up to the front door and we had to repack our belongings and haul them outside and down the driveway, at midnight, with no assistance. The luggage cart stayed outside the room for two days. An article of clothing left in the "old" room took a full day to chase down and the lack of internet was left up to us to solve via cell phone calls to the hotel's provider. (we never did receive a call back with a solution) The air conditioning unit was too noisy to use, the room was dark and dingy, the pool is a concrete pad situated on a busy roadway and there is a daily charge to park your car. This is basically a cheap motel. Our stay was horrid and we actually booked another hotel on Priceline and moved out to the Hyatt for $30 less per night! I would think twice before booking another Best Western room.

Room Tip: Quite simply, don't stay here if you want a restful and pleasant experience or care if you have...
