“It's a motel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

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.

Pros: location, breakfast, friendly staff, early check in, no sweat parking, fridge, microwave in room.
Kind of Cons: a little noisy-but Understandbly so, no bathtub ( but they did let us check in two hours early and with no bath tub I imagine it's faster to clean, so I was ok with no bath

**hotel tax is 17%, ugh!!

Room Tip: 117 is next door to housecleaning- a little noisy with nrolling carts If you have stroller, get dow...

We have stayed here on our last three visits to the US. We love the friendly individual service from both the office staff and the housekeeping staff. We recommend this place to everyone we speak to and absolutely intend staying here whenever we can. It may not be the stereotypical 5 star in terms of fittings and furnishings but that is more than made up for in how they treat their guests. Robyn & Leesa Cuthbert

Location is right across the street from Disneyland entrance. Free breakfast is awesome when you have a family of 5. Eggs, sausage, fresh waffles, juice, coffee, toast, bagels, fruit, cottage cheese, oatmeal, cold cereal, chocolate milk....different days offer buiscuts and gravy and bacon. Nice and hot. The staff are very friendly and courteous . Lemonade or punch or hot tea and coffee in the lobby always waiting. The hot tub was refreshing when we wanted a break from the park. We enjoyed our stay here. Had a problem with our toilet and they were on it so fast. This is a great place to stay when Disneyland can be so exspensive. There's also a little store here to buy water bottles, soda or souviners. Thank you Park Vue Inn for a magical time!

We were looking for a good hotel close to Disneyland, and Park Vue could not be any closer! Room was quite (we were in the back of the hotel), clean, staff was nice, hot breakfast gave us a good start every day (could get very crowded in the morning but this is expected).
The hotel could not be any closer to disney main entrance, in fact, I think only Disney Grand California resort is closer to the entrance. The proximity really helped because we had young childrens.
Excellent hotel for the price and condition!

You can't beat the location of the Park Vue for access to Disneyland. Its literally 5 metres to the lights and the main entrance is across the road. The rooms are fine if you are spending all your time at Disneyland but there is no lounge area or way to get some space. The pool is good for kids who need to unwind outside of the room provided you travel at the right time of year. You can't really complain about the breakfast for the price and its convenience. There are limited facilites in the room to self cater unless you have some museli bars or non perishables. The big issue for me was the thin walls. There are signs everywhere to remind guests to be quiet and not disturb other guests which seem to be a complete waste of time. I didn't get a lot of sleep while we stayed there but the noise did not wake my husband and 2 children so it won't bother everyone. I found this place hard to rate because of the noise from other guests. But this place is so well located and such a bargain we got to really enjoy Disneyland which was the main purpose of our trip.

Stayed at PVI again on our return trip to USA from Australia in October. Had read reviews in regards to some of the "stripping" back of offereings such as dinner, welcome basket, etc but I stay there for pretty simple reasons - location and location. PVI isn't 5 star but it offers friendly service, comfortable rooms and has a quick breakfast included to fuel up before long days at Disneyland. I loved it (again) and the kids loved it! They wont let me book anywhere else so I will be there again next time. Thanks PVI!
