“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We enjoyed our stay here. It's a nice, middle-of-the-road hotel. It was right next to Knott's Berry Farm (walking distance), and we could hear the roller coasters at night. It's a block from a drug store for drinks (cheaper than the $3.50 in the soda machine). The 2-Queen room was big enough for our porta-crib.

We added breakfast to our stay, and it was decent. The pool and kids' water area was also nice, but we came in March so it was a little bit cold for me. My 7 year old had a blast. I used the fitness center, small but had everything I needed. Everyone was very friendly.

The room didn't have a lot of surface space. If we go back, we'll upgrade to a suite. There's only a small counter at the sink, and a tiny bit of space on the dresser, desk, and end table. With a baby and baby food, bottles, etc., we were hard pressed to get stuff done and keep things off the floor where the baby was crawling.

The hotel was very reasonably priced for what you get. If only they could do something about that Los Angeles Traffic. If we go back we will definitely try to arrive much later in the day and probably come in the summer when it's warmer and I can enjoy the pool.

Stayed as part of a larger group and was very pleasantly surprised. Great reception area and Amber Waves provided nice meal. Rooms a bit dated but was great value for money. If you want 5+ accommodation look elsewhere - decent, clean spacious rooms are what you get. Snoopy visits were great! Wonderful location - check out Mrs Knottsberry's Chicken!

I have stayed at the Knotts Hotel 3 different times recently. It is not a big time resort with all the perks. It's more like a budget family deal resort. Knott's Berry Farm is a short walk away. The rooms with 2 queen beds are spacious and clean, but are a bit outdated although they recently redesigned the hotel and changed it to be part of Knott's. It has a restaurant inside called Amber Waves and has good room service. They charge $7 a day for parking, but if you book on certain websites like Priceline parking is included in your room charge. I learned that from the front desk lady (thank you very much). There's a place inside for kid's birthday parties and Snoopy walks around there, good to catch him for pics. They also have a free shuttle to Disneyland now which is great if you want to visit both places and save on parking costs.
Negatives: The walls are thin and you can hear everything outside of the room. The beds I have slept on were uncomfortable in all 3 rooms. Also, housekeeping is very quick to knock on your door 15 minutes before and at checkout time to get you out. If you don't answer because you are brushing your teeth in your underwear, they will continue to knock, harder, until you do.

I'm struggling to understand the reasoning behind some of these negative reviews. This is the "Knott's Berry Farm Hotel." Knott's is a poor person's Disneyland. I think that should give you enough information on what one should expect from this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights in Feb 2013 while visiting family in the neighorbood. I paid $60/night. The room was clean and had furniture in it. At $60/night, that's about all I'm expecting. If (i) you are/were expecting more, or (ii) you are paying/paid much more than $60/night, then I would say both of those are/were bad life decisions.

Hotel was good value. As others have mentioned, make sure to ask for a room on a higher floor and not facing the pool (but, pool looks great if you have kids).

Basic room. Friendly staff. Arrived at 10:30 and we were very happy to be allowed an early check in so we could enjoy the park. Bought a package deal which included room, parking, tickets, and breakfast. Great value. Dinner at Amber waves was okay but the breakfast buffet was fantastic!

We have stayed at this hotel every time we've visited Knott's Berry Farm and have always had a pleasant visit.

The rooms are basic and clean. We typically don't spend a lot of time in it so that is just fine with us. The swimming pool area is excellent and all of the staff we've encountered at the hotel have been friendly and helpful.

You do have to pay for parking which is a strike but the lot is well lit and regularly patrolled by park security which may even it out.

The proximity to the park and Knott's California Marketplace (including the famous Chicken Dinner restaurant) make this the perfect spot for our family when we visit.

Don't forget to head through the tunnel and and under the street to visit the fish pond for a little quiet and the reproduction of Independence Hall for a little education.

Room Tip: If you are there on the weekend, try to avoid a room on the topmost floor. The banquet room is on th...
