“Excellent Value! a No-Brainer for Disney bound families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I have no idea what some of the negative reviewers are talking about with regards to this hotel. It's GREAT!

This week was my third stay over the past 6 years at this property, and they came through again with flying colors!

Clean rooms, Comfortable beds, Convenient location, and Courteous staff... what more could you want from a hotel that is (yes I timed it three mornings in a row...) a 6 min. walk to the front gates of Disneyland! I’m not sure what the other negative reviewers were expecting...If you want a 5 Diamond /Triple Star Resort/Water park/Spa then shell out the big $$$$ and stay at the Grand Californian. --but you’ll have a farther walk to Disneyland than we did :)

I stayed there this week with my three children ages 5,7,& 9. In the past when the kids were younger we would come back for quiet afternoon naps and then return in the early evening because the hotel is so close to the parks. As always, the room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. It came with a small microwave and fridge. There is a 7-11 like convenience store downstairs complete with an in house coffee bar (think small Pete’s Coffee). Yes, the elevators are dated. but they are clean, and they work...and folks, if they don’t work fast enough for you, it’s a three story building, you could always just (gasp) use the stairs? --With that said, other reviewers have mentioned trying the get a room at the front of the building to avoid a long walk at the end of the day...Seriously!?! The property is not that big. Please ignore those reviewers. You’ll laugh when you get there and realize they are lamenting an extra 200 yards of walking. I do however agree with the tip of being toward the front top floor to get a better view of the fireworks though...

I took the advice of other reviewers and brought a box of cereal and jug of milk to feed the kids in the mornings before we left. Yes, the free “breakfast” is not much more than free coffee and danish/donuts but if you REALLY need more there’s an IHop and a McDonald’s two doors down in either direction.

The bathrooms were clean. A bit dated yes, but everything works so where’s the problem? Others also complained about paying for parking. --Listen, ALL the hotels situated across the street from Disneyland charge for parking, and $9/day is a lot less than the $16/day Disney charges you to park.

To sum it up. This is a GREAT property for families looking for a clean, safe place to flop between busy days at the parks. The price is more than fair for what you get, and honestly, you could not be closer to the front doors of the parks. We stayed in room 381 on the top floor this time, and sat in our room and watched the fireworks at night resting our tired legs after a long day at the parks.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top (third floor) towards the front and you'll get a pretty good view of t...

Surprisingly good! We stayed in a ground floor room. The room was clean, spacious, and modern, and the beds were comfortable. This placve looked well maintained and it is very convenient if you are visiting Disneyland, for it is across the street of the main entrance. You can't go wrong here. I did not try the free continental breakfast, so I can't say if good or bad.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the property are quieter.

I've stayed here several times. Hotel is basic but, nice. Parking is not good. They valet you in certain areas. The guy driving my car was the worst parker I'd ever seen!! Very scary!! Wish we could of parked ourselves. Then they make you give them your keys. Super uncomfortable handing a stranger over your keys. They need to only let guests park in their lot. Will consider another hotel based on the parking alone..

There is only one reason to stay at this hotel - it is literally over the road from the entrance to Disney. Other than that there is nothing endearing about it. The air conditioning is noisy, the rooms are very dated, there is a $9 a day parking fee and the breakfast is the worst I have ever had in an American hotel (a small pastry and a small orange juice - we didn't bother going after the first morning). But don't let the location convince you to stay here, there are plenty of other hotels within five minutes of the park. Obviously you don't come to Anaheim to stay in your hotel, but only chose this hotel based on price and then make sure you factor in parking and the fact you will probably end up going to McDonalds for breakfast (about three doors down the street).

Couldn't ask for a better location.
Room was clean and reasonably priced.
Basic cable channels.
In room coffee maker
iHop right down the street.
Gift shop right across the parking lot has sodas and aspirin.
Reasonably priced.
Check in time isn't until 4 but if you get there early they'll put your bags in the storage room so you can get right to the park.

Downsides:
Charge to use WIFI

Love that the hotel was across the street from Disneyland. Continental breakfast was nothing to speak about. Average rooms but perfect for the only purpose we were there for which was a good night sleep!

First time i stayed here I was 9 and I remembered the visit fondely, so some two decades later, I decided to try the Tropicana Inn as an affordable alternative for a Disney vacation. I was very happy with our 4 day stay. The hotel was clean, safe and very close to Disneyland (literally half a block and a across the road). I liked our room set up with the bath/toilet room and the open sink/vanity/countertop - made it much easier for two girls to get ready in the AM. There is also a small microwave and decent mini-fridge - we bought groceries and enjoy the convenience of making our own breakfasts. The beds were super-comfy. Elements of the hotel needed some attention, like the shower head was heavily calcified and the grout in the shower/toilet room needed some care. The rooms aren't very spacious, but we didn't spend much time there, so it wasn't a big deal. Unfortunately the pool closes at 10pm, so we didn't get to enjoy it. Parking was quite congested. All of the issues were minor inconveniences and were minor given the hotel's location and low cost. The hotel staff were excellent! I would happily return!
