“Affordable hotel just outside of Disneyland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is awesome! It's not fancy or anything but its located within walking distance (enter thru Disney Grand Hotel/Downtown Disney to get to the park). There is also a Denny's in the same parking lot.

My favorite thing about this hotel was our room. I stayed there with 4 friends and our room was huge. It was basically 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms in one with a divider in the middle which you can leave open or close. One room had a king size, the other 3 double beds. Microwave/refrigerator in room. You can really stay there comfortably with a large party or family. You also have to book this type of room from the Best Western website, it's not available thru Expedia, Travelocity, etc.

The rooms were clean and staff was nice. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was awsome. The room was super clean, and beds were comfortable. Everyday we would walk the 15 or so minutes to Disney, and then head back in the afternoon to swim in the pool. We could see the fireworks from our hotel every night and thoughly enjoyed our stay. Also there is a fridge and a miocrowave so we were able to buy some breakfast stuff and snacks to help with dinning out costs. The next time we go to Disney we will stay here hands down! Go on, book it:)PS our wi-fi worked no problem.

This hotel was a very last minute option, we had originally booked a Best Western for 2 nights a half a mile away, but upon arriving at LAX and driving out to Anaheim, had found it had closed and ceased trading 5 days earlier. After contacting our booking agent, Hotels.com who at 8pm proved to be absolutely useless we just drove down Katella Ave until we came across this hotel. I have to say it could not have turned out better, the young lady at reception was very pleasant and helpful, she puts us in a room at the rear of the property away from traffic noise so we could get a good nights sleep after nearly 17 hrs travelling. The room itself was of a decent size, was very clean and had all you would expect from a Best Western Plus. we have stayed in a number of Best Western Plus Hotels and although not cheap, find them good value for money. No Restaurant or Bar on-site but there is a Denny's next door with an alcohol license. We did not use pool, but looked clean and was a reasonable size. Disneyland entrance is a 10-15 min walk away which was not a problem for us as we walk a lot anyway. Area seemed ok, certainly did not feel threatened and even went for a 3.5 mile on my first morning to try and beat jetlag. Would definitely stay here again and certainly would recommend to family and friends.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper or just don't like traffic sounds, get room at rear!

Stayed here in July & booked with Travelocity. A large part of my disappoint I will blame on Travelocity, I'm pretty sure I was booking a Best Western that was 'right across' from Disneyland and with the inflated price, I was sure of it.
When I arrived I of course expressed my concern to the Front Desk and they happily called the other Best Western to see if there was avail, but there was not. They very kind and down to earth front desk clerk checked us in early (9:30AM on a Monday) and we got a 1st floor room very close to the lobby, which I would actually recommend.

The room: beds were pretty comfy, bed linens were soft, pillows were plentiful, towels could have been better but did the job. There was a fridge and coffee pot in the room along with a hair dryer. AC unit was a bit loud but when we came back to the room for naps, it didn't bother us one bit. I can't complain much about the room itself --nothing went wrong or was out of place.

The location: Here is where I'll get picky. I would not recommend "walking to the park" with little ones from here. You have to cross a majorly busy intersection, then walk through the Cast Member parking lot (finally found a safe walking area inside). This will bring you to the end of Downtown Disney, from here you can either take the Monorail to Tomorrowland or walk what would be another 'block' to the Main Entrance. I would not do this at night time! Good thing is there is an ART shuttle right in front of the property. I swear by these ART shuttles, $5/day for a shuttle to the front of the parks and runs every 20 mins. Again a positive thing about our room location is that we were able to just open our room door and keep an eye out for the shuttle and then run to it.

Long story short, I overpaid on Travelocity, even after considering the location mix up. But the staff is remarkable so it made up for it.

We stayed here for 10 days in June/July 2013 and had a great time. The property is nice and close to Downtown Disney (walk across Katella, through the "Simba" Parking lot and around the Disneyland Hotel and you are into Downtown Disney after about 10 minutes of walking.)

The staff did a great job cleaning up after our family of 4, the only thing I would caution you on is to keep on a pair of socks or shoes on as the carpets will turn your feet black.

The pool was nice after a few very hot days of walking around the theme parks, and there were lots of towels always available.

While there is no hotel restaurant, there is a Denny's where kids eat free with a coupon from the hotel. If you run out of coupons, the front desk is happy to give you more. Also there is an Italian place called Marri's right next door that will not disappoint!

The only negative (besides the carpets) was that the A/C unit was fairly loud, but we are a family of fairly heavy sleepers, so it didn't bother us that much. It may affect those that are light sleepers however. On the plus side, it worked really well and kept the room nice and cool during a heat wave.

This was a great value place to stay if you are going to Disneyland!

Room Tip: If you want to see the Disney Fireworks, get a room on the second floor in the rear of the property...

You wouldnt want to stay anywhere else near disneyland. This property has alot of facilities that you would find in a much more expensive hotel. The pool and spa area are first class. Leaving it open until 11pm is most welcome. Room is spotless beds extremely comfy and are quite roomy. Staff are very helpful and will do their best to accommodate your requests.

Only negatives
You really dont want to walk barefoot on the carpet as it will leave your feet jet black. No cutlery in the room and you have to drink out of paper plates no freezer so you cant bring ice cream home.

Awesome! Very clean, friendly staff, good customer service. My only concern was the pool water was salty...? Other than that we really enjoyed ourselves! Also it was a quick walk to disneyland and so we were able to walk there
