“Can not fault this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a 'split stay' in Anaheim, first staying for 3 nights at the Disneyland Hotel then transferring to the Park Vue for 5 nights. We expected to be disappointed, but we weren't. We already knew that the location of this hotel was unquestionably fantastic but the service and room were also excellent. We stayed in a 2 queen w/pull out sofa room. This room also had a kitchen and the sofa was in a separate lounge room so the room was quite big. We could put our daughter to sleep and still watch tv without it disturbing her. The room was very clean and when we arrived the towels were folded into swans which was fun. They knew it was my birthday and had left a gift and a note to say happy birthday and a voucher for an icecream cake from cold rock (delicious!!) which was so thoughtful.
Breakfast is free and consisted of toast, bagels, waffles, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, waffles that you make yourself and eggs and sausages. It was a really great breakfast.
We were in room 212 and from our doorway we could see the Disneyland fireworks - there's an even better view from the breakfast area.
A few days into our trip we received a call from reception asking if there was anything we needed and if we were happy with our accommodation.
There is also a Denny's almost next door which has quite decent food at a reasonable price - we're not foodies so it was fine for us.
I can't say a bad thing about this hotel, it has everything, location, price, cleanliness, service, facilities, all excellent. If we get back to Disneyland again, we will stay here without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you can see the fireworks!

Our family of four just spent 3 nights at the Park Vue Inn. It was our first time staying at this hotel after getting a recommendation from a friend. We loved the location, right across the street from the main entrance. The location was appreciated most by our legs after a long day at the parks, and there was also no complaining from our boys about the length of the walk back to our hotel.
We found the rooms a bit dated, but liked the overall room size and layout. We had a room with 2 queen beds, which were very comfortable. We also liked having the sink and mirror outside of the bathroom with the shower and toilet. The one downside to the rooms was the noise from adjacent rooms and the hallways. It seemed like you could hear every conversation nearby. Apparently, the hotel is aware of this issue as there are signs all over asking guests to not disturb other guests. It seems like some extra insulation and better windows would help.
Our family also enjoyed the breakfast each morning. There was a good variety of items to choose from. However, we felt that the quality of food offered was low. We also experienced problems with some items running out and not being refilled.
The hotel staff was very friendly and check in/out was quick and easy. We didn't have any major problems, so we didn't interact with the staff very much.
There also is a small market/store onsite, which was helpful when we needed to pick up some toiletry items we had forgotten to bring.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would consider staying at this hotel again in the future.

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
