“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Been at the Red Lion now twice. Great location and walking distance to everything around the area. This place has been renovated to be more modern. The internet is not the greatest as there are always conferences at this hotel and they seem to share the same Wi- Fi does slow it down for sure. Gym was not the greatest as we went get our daily workouts and half the machines were broken. Overall good stay and clean.

I selected the Red Lion after reviewing Tripadvisor and must say that our experience was pretty good. While there some criticism by other contirubtors, we did not experience any problems at all. The room was fine, the breakfast was properly priced and the overall service was quite good for a mid-range hotel. The front desk staff were more than helpful as was the tour desk. Nothing was a problem for these people. We stayed for 5 nights and housekeeping was within our expections. The hotel is an easy walk to Disneyland and tour pick ups for LA and Universal Studio tours were on time. I would definately stay at the Red Lion again. Another bonus was the guest laundry which was inexpensive and efficient. The free Wifi was great, I make a point now of only staying at hotels that provide free wifi.

Room Tip: We were on level 4 and had a view of the fireworks at Disneyland, although this was only on the firs...

This is the second time I have stayed here and it still has not disappointed me. The staff were friendly and the room was beautiful and clean. Short walk to everything. An amazing and well priced place to stay.

Nice room, comfy clean. You basically get what you pay for, but it's best I've stayed at the price rate. Other hotels near Disney Land around the same price were nearly not as nice. Definitely a great deal. It's about a 3/4 of a mile from Disney Land, which is not very for at all for most people, except for my lazy spoiled wife who insisted on driving and wasting time and money for parking

If you stay here, book your reservation through their website. The best deals you can find are there! In 2012 my family made 4 trips to disneyland and stayed here 3 of those trips. When we're ready to go back you bet we will book at the Red Lion! The Breakfast Buffett is perfect and exactly what anyone with kids needs before a long day at disney. I definently suggest getting a room in the main building, as it seems the 2nd building may have once been smoking rooms when that was legal.. Thats a smell you just cant get rid of. Also, I learned this from another reviewer. Do not waste money on shuttles! Red lion is right next door to the Toy Story parking lot, you can jump on the shuttle for FREE, the nice people working the parking lot even stop traffic for you. :) The shuttles you pay for make constant stops and take forever to pick you up. The free shuttle is constantly running and always one waiting behind when they get full. Great place to stay if you want affordable, clean and relaxing. I never had a problem with noise any of the 3 trips we made :) Thanks red lion!!! I hope we come back soon!

Room Tip: Get a room in the main building

I saw a great deal for room, parking & breakfast for 2 adults and 2 kids. Decided to give it a try and very glad we did!
We got a 2 queen room, didnt upgrade to higher as we were going to be at Disneyland at night and wouldnt need to see the fireworks from our room. Walked next door to the woody parking lot and took the shuttle from there.
Room was quiet, dont believe hotel was full as parking lot wasnt but didnt even hear a door close. Beds very comfy!
Breakfast in the morning was good, everything hot that was supposed to be and had fruit, cereals, bagels, pancakes, eggs, bacon, potatoes and sausage.
Overall decided we will be back, location and extras made it worth every penny and more!

Best hotel I have stayed at for the price. Bathroom had granite counter top, Keurig coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave, touch screen thermostat, flat screen tv, very nice bed and furnishings and chrome accent hardware and modern finishes. Very classy and clean, with friendly staff. Felt like I should have paid more. Will stay here from now on when visiting Disneyland. Only negatives were tv was not high definition, a second room we had the coffee maker wasn't working, and their ATM was out of service and the bus pass machine was offline and would only accept cash. I also didn't like that I had to pay each day for parking but since I feel the stay was so affordable it's a non-issue for me.
