“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Four of us (3 adults and 3-year old) stayed in a room with one queen bed and a bunk bed. Room was small, but spent most of the time at the Disneyland or California Adventure Park, so it did not matter. It was equiped with coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The hotel was very close to the main entrance, and we were able to watch fireworks from our hotel. Parking was free, even on the check-out day (until midnight), so it was very reasonable. Complementary reakfast had a pretty good variety of things - coffee, juice, yogurt, fruits, cereals, waffles, toast, pastries, eggs, sausage/bacon. Only feature that needs improvement was height of the sink, which was too high for our toddler, and there was no step stool. There were many toddlers staying at the hotel, so it would be helpful for those little visitors to be able to wash their hands.

Located right across the street from the Disneyland gate, this hotel was convenient and made for a relaxing trip. We felt like we could go back and forth from the hotel easily. We loved the free parking and free wifi. The breakfast buffet was pretty good, especially the waffles. The beds are comfortable enough. The bathroom fixtures could use some updating. The staff was helpful.Overall this was a comfortable, fun stay.

We were pretty pleased with this hotel. It is right at the crosswalk to go into Disney, so it is probably as close as you can get. Our room had two queen beds which were very comfortable. The shower was super.
The breakfast was very good. We had biscuits and gravy, waffles, fruit, bacon and eggs. Everything was hot and well-stocked. (We went about 8:30.)
The staff could not have been any nicer. We left our bag before we went to the park and it was moved to our room. They were more than friendly and helped us with every question we had. I felt like we got Ritz treatment the whole time!
My one reservation was that the floor felt a little sticky (on the tiles) and the carpet seemed a little dirty (on our socks). Everything else was VERY clean...and we are obsessively picky! We have had WDW rooms at the Poly that were worse.
We had a second story room toward the back and we didn't have any noise. The heater worked fine; didn't use the AC. The pool looked clean and well-maintained. There were several people using it.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you want to be close to the entrance and want good service.

Location can't be beat, right across the street from Disneyland. Staff is friendly. Perfect for families -- expansive breakfast spread, bunk beds for kids are great. Pool and hot tub are located in a gated area off the parking lot -- worked well for my kids. Outdoor entry to rooms in typical California/motel style. Not a fancy (Ritz Carlton style) but clean, great free parking and and a great value! Even has a Disney gift shop on site where we bought a Minnie hat for my daughter. A little funny that a sign for Cold Stone Creamery is on the same sign as the hotel, but oh well! Really convenient and no shuttle involved -- can easily walk from the park, have a nap or swim, and go back. Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing your experience and taking the time to review our Hotel. I am very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Though it's true we are not the "Ritz" we strive to provide world class hospitality and a clean family friendly environment; seems like we hit the mark during your stay. As a side note that Cold Stone is owned by the Hotel, hence the reason they share a sign with us. If you didn't have the chance to make to the Cold Stone this trip perhaps you will on your next visit. Thank you for choosing our Hotel. We look forward to your next stay with us.

Warm Regards,

This is not, by any definition, a nice hotel. The rooms are small and poorly ventilated, the exposure of the rooms directly to the parking lot means you will be awakened at 6:45 a.m. literally every morning by the crowds that are headed to early opening of Disneyland or rolling their suitcases noisily across the sidewalk, and the place has the look of an old motel that has had a lot of surface-cosmetic fixups without any major renovation in a long time. We stepped outside to clouds of smoke from smokers in the parking lot every day. But did my kids have a great time there? They sure did. Bunk beds, steps from Disneyland, nonstop cookies and candy in the lobby, and breakfast with a waffle maker are all a kid needs to find happiness at a hotel. We came here only after the slightly better place next door, where we stayed last time, was booked. But we paid less and got the location, which was all that really mattered to us when Disney was the focus. If you're on a budget and want to be super close to the park, you'll be fine here, as long as your expectations are low.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the bunk bed rooms if you have kids. My guess is that it is much quieter toward the...

I would like to thank you for your honest review of our property. We are currently undergoing some improvement projects, so the areas of the Hotel you're referring to are being renovated. I apologize for the disturbances you experienced. We make every effort to remind other guests to be mindful of their neighbors as evidenced by our many signs inside and outside our guest rooms throughout the property. Unfortunately people don't always follow the signs direction. We do have a smoking section located away from the hotel; however guests don't always adhere to that policy either. I am glad your family did enjoy their stay overall and I hope you will give us another opportunity to be of service.

Sincerely,

Brian DeRose

We are a family of four and come to Disneyland every couple of years. We have tried a few of the hotels close to the park and although I have never written a review before, thought I would share our experience at the Park Vue Inn (stayed there from March 1, 2013 - March 9, 2013). The hotel is ok. Location can’t be beat as it is literally right across the street from the parks. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful when we needed something. The free breakfast was nothing to write home about…there were two different “Hot” breakfasts that switched every other day. One day was scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns (if you were there early enough before they ran out). The other day was a scrambled egg patty (basically scrambled eggs in the shape of an oval), bacon and biscuits (a sort of do-it-yourself Egg McMuffin). They also had three waffle makers, toaster, coffee and juice and again, if you were lucky enough to get there early some cut up fruit (they seem to put out one bowl of fruit every day and once it was gone it was gone, every morning I would see at least a couple of people walk up, look at the empty bowl and walk away disappointed that nothing was in it, even whole apples or bananas would have been great). The breakfast eating area only had about 6 tables inside and some outside tables and chairs…we were talking about how old and grungy the outdoor furniture was when I made the decision to write a review, but they ended up getting all new stuff the day we left (go figure)! They also had a sign that said the breakfast ran till 9:30am (although the info they give you at check-in said 10:00am) but we noticed that they basically stop re-filling things up at about 9:00am.The rooms were spacious (we had two double beds) but we felt that the cleaning staff basically walked in made the bed, swept the floor and squirted some air freshener into the room. The bathtub, counters and sinks were not exactly “spotless” and the carpets and floors was pretty much just swept and not vacuumed and/or mopped (as evident by the black on the bottom of our socks). The pool was pretty nice and clean (deep too for a hotel pool). The first night we were able to sit in the hot tub and watch the fireworks, which was pretty cool. Parking at the hotel is free and plentiful, so had no problems with that. If we were to go again, I am not 100% sure I would go back to that hotel…the price and the location were good, but I guess the old “get what you pay for” comes into play.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are away from the Breakfast area and therefore a little quieter. Also, ask for se...

I appreciate that you took the time to give your review. It seems like you had a mediocre stay at our Hotel, and for that I must apologize. Currently the breakfast area in undergoing some improvements as you mentioned. Our breakfast is very popular and yes it can get pretty busy, but we shouldn’t run out of food. I will address that immediately with the staff. I will also address the concerns you had with your guest room with my room’s manager and housekeeping staff. Our mission is to provide a clean affordable home away from home. I hope that your next trip to Disney will find you staying with us. We look forward to an opportunity to be of better service.

Chose to stay here based on Tripadvisor reviews and their rating since I wanted to be the closest to Disneyland as possible! So they are exactly across the street fro the walk-in gate. Arrived in early am and there was no problem parking for the whole day. Staff was nice and helpful. The room is great for families or in our case a mom and two teens who all want their own bed since there are cozy bunk beds. This makes the room tight but manageable since we were only there to sleep. the room was adequately clean but showing age with bathroom paint starting to peel and other small details. Definitely a much used hotel but really if you are doing Disney you are not in the room alot. The breakfast was quite complete and the afternoon cookie were super yummy. For a night or two doing Disney it will work.

Room Tip: less noise in the back...not near breakfast area!
