My family of 5 stayed at the Del Sol Inn the weekend before Christmas. We have stayed many nearby hotels on Harbor Blvd. because of their location across the street from the entrance of Disneyland. Every hotel hiked up their prices for December. I looked online for the best rate, and called to see if there were any rooms left. I was told that there would be specials closer to the day we wanted to check-in & there were. Two nights prior to our arrival at the Del Sol, I called and the rate was $98 for a 2 queen/bunk bed room. Since this was a surprise trip for Xmas for the kids, I was thrilled!
We arrived late, just before midnight and I called to make sure the room was not going to be given away. Oscar at the front desk was very kind and helpful during checkout. There is free valet parking - the lot is very small, but it works for being a small hotel. They also carry tickets to Disneyland in the lobby, so that was convenient and less than the prices at the gate.
Our room was quiet and clean. The coverlets were not quite clean, you could see stains of something on the inner side of them, but the sheets & pillow cases were fresh. We never use the coverlet anyway. The pillows were firm, but fluffy and comfortable. The bunk bed sheets were fresh and neat as well. It was against the wall next to a door that can connect to the room next to us. Beds were firm, but not too much. They were actually quite perfect after a long day of walking. There were granite tops in the vanity area which was nice.
At 7am the breakfast was the usual: danishes, mini muffins, toast, cereal, oj & milk. There was not much at that time, but we went 20 min later and there was much more. There is a Denny's right in front of the hotel, but we did not eat there even if it was open 24 hours.
Everyone is friendly, and many say "Good Morning" to you as you pass by them, which is pleasant. The cleaning lady was friendly , too, we actually stopped back in the room to grab some coats and she said that she would clean our room after we left. When we arrived back late night, it was neat and had fresh towels in the bathroom. I saw that the pool was cleaned around 730a but it was cold so we never took advantage of it. I imagine during hot weather, it would be much noiser by our room. We also asked for another night and it was given to us at the same rate and same great service. Check out was a breeze, but the lady in the lobby is not as friendly or informative as the night guy.
This hotel is average. Service is very good. Location is excellent. Cleanliness is average.
