“Good hotel for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Red Lion Hotel in Anaheim. Walking distance to Disneyland, grocery stores and The CheeseCake Factory.
The room was clean, beds comfortable, bathroom updated.
Microwave and small refrigerator was provided.
Our son enjoyed the smores made at the pool area on Friday night.
Hotel restaurant on the other hand was a disaster. We paid for breakfast on our first day and regretted we went there. Two gentlemen working there don't know what is a customer service. I understand it was a buffet and we didn't expect anything else but coffee and warm milk for our child. By the time we returned from the buffet to our table it was already taken by other guests and the waiter didn't say anything but served them our drinks. We sat at the other table and asked him for new coffee and warm milk but he refused to serve us because our table was in the section that belonged to another waiter. The other waiter spent hours in the kitchen. We were almost done with our breakfast when we finally got our coffee, hot water and cocoa mix instead warm milk. No creamer and sugar. Both gentleman was moving slowly between the tables setting them up.
You'll get a better breakfast and service at nearby Ihop.
The hotel Yes, Red Pasta restaurant definitely NO.

I just returned from my trip to Anaheim, which was focused around the psychotherapy conference at the Anaheim Convention Center. Location-wise, staying at Red Lion was extremely convenient, as it's right across the street from the Center, about a 5min walk.

The check-in process was very fast & straight-forward, and the staff at the desk were very helpful throughout my stay. I had some questions about the plumbing & heating for example, & they sent their engineer over to my room within 10min of my inquiry. They, as well as the staff at the restaurant, were also both friendly & well-informed.

I mostly have positive things to say about my experience; the bathroom & my room in general were very clean, which is always THE most important thing for me. Noise levels were acceptable, & the bed mattress & pillows were really comfortable. There is a 7/11 about 5min away, & a number of eating options, mostly fast-food.

Now a few things that I think could be improved: the closet space is very small, which was fine for me staying alone, but I was in a room with 2 queen-size beds, so with 2 or more people in that room it would be very hard to keep clothes in there. There is a coffee machine in the room which is nice, but I would have preferred a water kettle as I mostly drink tea, and it would have been nice to have a box of complimentary tea bags in the room (I bought some at the 7/11). Breakfast was quite tasty, but it could use a much more diverse offering of food and drinks, & to have them rotated more often. Otherwise I am not sure that the price of $10.75 is justified.

All in all, after a full day of talks & presentations at the Convention Center, The Red Lion Hotel was a friendly & pleasant place to return to.

Staff was nice and helpful. Rooms were clean, furniture is a bit dated. All in all I was satisfied, I had 4 rooms for 4 nights and I didn't like the size of the rooms for the price you pay, and there are no dressers only slots to put your things. close enough for me to Disneyland.

Parking per day was $14 which we thought was too much for this caliber of hotels. Not sure what others in the vicinity are charging. Breakfast was not worth $10 a person even tho' it was all you can eat.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to read that your stay was not to your expectations. I do want to assure you that our parking charge is comparable to the hotels in the area. Disney charges $16 without in and privileges. Our parking is $14 is valid overnight and up to 12am the day of checkout with in and our privileges. Also, we are looking in to ways to provide a better value for our breakfast buffet. I hope that you will visit us again and give us another try. Best regards!

Room was modern, spacious; bathroom was nice and clean. Parking is simple (but extra as anywhere else in the area).
Went in looking for a value stay; and found a hidden gem.
The hoytel has an outdoor pool (which we did not use) and ample parking. The place was clean throughout and rooms and bathrooms were comfortable and modern

This hotel is great! Friendly staff, especially ELSIE! We stay here every time we come to Disneyland (twice a year). We will definitely stay again in July but I am pushing the hubby for another hotel next December ONLY because there is no jacuzzi. It would be perfect if I was able to soak my tired legs after long days at the Magic Kingdom!
