I did a lot of research selecting this location and booked six months in advance. When I booked, the property was rated #1 by tripadvisor travelers but I'm starting to wonder how and why? Location? Yes - unbeatable. Much closer than staying at the Disneyland Hotel like we did last year. But this is an old motel. In other words, you park right outside the door and people walk right outside the window to your room. Yes, and you can hear the garbage truck coming in each morning at 6 am and other trucks with the back-up beapers going. The room is very small; the furniture old and wooden; the bed uncomfortable. The bathroom vanity has been updated but the bathroom is smaller and the rest is old too. The breakfast buffet is tolerable and better than some but they've stopped the evening snacks and other perks that were part of the reason why I selected this place. The front lobby is deceptively beautiful and the staff so nice that I was stunned when they said no elevator just walk back outside to your room and I saw that the place is called "park vue" meaning not a view of the Disney park (which you do see from the front) but parking lot view which you see from the front door of your room. We would have left if it hadn't been Christmas Eve and I had two children (5 and 4) with us who were fine with the bunk beds and just wanted to go to Disneyland. Oh, also very limited closet space (tiny) and no where to put luggage. There was a small microwave and a decent size little fridge and a coffee pot. There is a small store to buy water and other things and gift stuff. The free Internet was actually great. And the front desk staff ver nice. We didn't use the pool or the small fitness area. I have read some more recent reviews and see that the five stars are all for location. Too bad - I think that is misleading. There are other hotels within steps of this one. But, if location and nice staff is all you are looking for this place would suit you. As I write this at 6:15am, however, I can hear the radio from outside my room as I have for the last two mornings. I would not stay here again.
