We stayed for 2 nights at the Peacock Suites. From the moment we arrived, we could tell the brochures we had received and the online photos completely over-rated this place!
Parking - The worst ever. They are 2 parking garage levels each with about 20 parking spaces. The problem is they reserve one of the levels for "valet" parking. Also, any overflow parking outside of the garage near the lobby is coned off and marked "valet" also. They charge you $8.00 a day to valet park. There is honestly no reason for this property to have valet parking at all considering how small it is. The last night we were there, we were unable to find a parking spot in the free garage. I literally handed my keys over to the valet, he drove my car 20 feet and parked it for me to the tune of $8.00.
Pool area - 2 nice jacuzzis. The pool is very, very small. Small sun deck located on 4th floor.
Room - We had a 1 bedroom suite with 2 queen beds. It was nice to have a seperate sitting area so the kids could have their own space and own TV. The room has a refrigerator, toaster, can opener & safe. There is a also a VCR. The layout of the room was a little strange. The vanity/sink area is right as you enter the room. If anyone walks out the door as you are trying to get ready, anyone in the hallway can see you standing there. The room was OK. Nothing great. We had to deal with the people above us who had kids that were jumping up & down so loudly we thought they were going to crash through the ceiling.
Free breakfast - Definitely nothing to write home about. Your standard muffins, cold cereal, juice & coffee.
Location - Not good. It says 2 blocks from Disneyland. Plan on walking a long, long way. These are city blocks, folks! There is a seedy night club across the street. I had read a previous review about a noisy laundry facility located next door. The property sits directly next to this place and I can see why noise would be an issue. Thankfully we stayed on a weekend so they were closed.
Reservations - Called the property twice and each time was told someone would have to call me back. The first time I did not get a call back, the second time someone finally did call back.
Check-in: Very quick and efficient. Because this is a timeshare property, they ask you to speak to the concierge who will validate your parking for you. The concierge give you a package of information (maps, brochures, etc.) for the area and also give you times and location for their timeshare presentation. She was very friendly & helpful (provided maps to Hollywood for us)and not pushy at all. You do not have to attend the presentation.
You can find something better in the Disney area that is much closer and much cheaper! The going rate for our room was $149.00 per night and it is definitely not worth it. If this is what Shell Vacation Club has to offer, I would never consider purchasing a timeshare with them.
