“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

A good walking distance to the Convention Center, and close to Disneyland as well. The entrance at check-in was slightly confusing (I actually made 2 attempts to find my way in) cause I arrived at night. Other than that, everything is well. Amenities include microwave and refrigerator - very convenient. I recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Whie I admit I'm a bit bias about hotels.....and I really do like my hotel stays to be a bit on the pampering side....especially when paying a couple hundred a night usually. I'd rank the Red Lion in Anaheim as average. The location was great for attending a Trade Show at the Convention center and it offers easy walking access to a lot of restaurants.
The rooms are clean and well maintained...but here's the problems I have with this hotel...or at least my room. The tub could not be used as a tub because the shower head starts dripping and spaying when the water is on. This was disspointing for me since my feet could have really used a soak after a long day on the show floor. The thermostat settings are next to impossible to figure out and to control a temperature and when the fan is running it's extremely loud.
The restaurant is pretty much a joke...all it is, is a buffet line for a continental type meal. And not open for lunch. The bar is pretty much hidden and closes at 9:30. And the internet service is a joke.
All in all, if you want a clean room to sleep and shower in - you'll love it. If you want a pampered atmosphere at all - not the hotel to stay at.

This hotel is perfect for visiting Disneyland and lots of restaurant choices, expensive and not so expensive. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Adequate parking, but it is $14/day so don't be surprised by that. We used the WiFi and that worked well. The front desk staff are helpful and our check-in was quick and efficient.

Thank you for staying with us! I am happy to read that you enjoyed you visit! You are correct in that there are many different dining options available near our hotel. For sit down style restaurants there is the Anaheim GardenWalk or Downtown Disney and for quick food on the go, there are pizza, Mexican, and sandwiches across the street from our hotel. Some of these quick food locations are open 24 hours. Thank you for your review and I look forward to your next stay with us. Best regards!

We got this hotel at promotional price of $70USD. Its a 2 double bed room, for 2 adults and 2 child. There's a 24 hour restaurant just beside it. Hotel access is easy. About 2 junctions away from Disneyland, 10 minutes walk. 7-Eleven about 5 mins walk. Clean room & toilet. The wall looks like tiles, but its actually wallpaper. You can request for room facing Disney to watch fireworks from your room.

Thank you for your review! It is true that we are only a 10 – 15 minute walk to Disneyland (approx. 300 yards). We also are within walking distance of several restaurants. Please know that if you ever need assistance with reservations, please feel free to contact me. I hope that you will visit us again the next time you are back in Anaheim. Best regards!

The hotel was nice enough. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was kinda noisy as it's on a busy street and it's only a few blocks from Disney so when they do the fireworks it's LOUD. It made my dog bark. They only charge $20 for a pet to stay which is a LOT less than other hotels in the area. But the food at the restaurant was DISGUSTING! I wasn't expecting much. It was clearly a cheap restaurant. But I was expecting the food to be edible and it wasn't. I ordered spaghetti and salad. The dressing came separately and it was congealed looking and gross. I wasn't going to touch that. Then the pasta came. I figured 'How bad can pasta be?'. The answer was VERY BAD. It was gummy and gross. I ate two bites and I was done even though I was starving. And the waitress didn't even ask if there was anything wrong even though I clearly didn't eat anything.

Everything that we experienced at this hotel was fantastic. We had a great view of the Disneyland Fireworks Show. All of the employees that we interacted with were professional, friendly, and helpful. The fire pits in the pool area are a nice touch and conducive to meeting and visiting with other guests. I didn't partake in the smores but heard they were delicious. We will definately stay here the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a view overlooking Disneyland and are a great location to watch the fireworks show.

Really bad hotel, they dont clean the rooms. The manager chris lacks customer services and treat their customer like crap. Whatever you do stay away you can find better options are the same or better prices around them.
