I stayed at this Hotel. It is really a motel on March 7th for two nights. I checked in around 2pm. The clerk was pretty friendly. He stated they were going to be full, but the parking lot was pretty empty and I did not see many people around. It may be due to people being at the parks or not have checked in yet.
I asked for a room with a refrigerator. He stated that he was not sure because they were full and I would have to check out the room first. I went to the room, which ended up being in the back, far away from the rest of the hotel. The room was upstairs. I walk in and they have a refrigerator and microwave, couch (fold out) and king size bed. The room had been broken into. The whole door jam was cracked through and was screwed back in. The molding around the door jam had been nailed in with about 50 nails. They were all coming out and I could push them in with my finger.
I was not comfortable with that room, so I went back and asked for another. he told me he would call maintenance. I told him they need to replace the entire door jam, but he insisted it was an old hotel and they would check it out. He stated he had a room by the pool, but no refrigerator. I checked it out , same type of room except no door breakage and no fridge or microwave. I went back down and he called the maintenance and they brought up a fridge and microwave. The back light was out on the microwwave but it turned on, but there was no plate when it spun around. The fridge worked fine. I did not use the microwave. There are several restaurants in the area. It is right across from Pirate Adventure and Medieval Times and next door to the Outback restaurant. The price was good. The furniture is old and beat up. The bed was fairly new, but the sheets were too small for a King and did not fit to the end of the bed (weird).
The continental breakfast was basic small muffins , dry cereal, some weird fruit cocktail, bread and some waffles. They have a rotating toaster for the waffles and bread, the breakfast was not really worth it.
They have a game room with a pool table, couple of arcade games, one electronic type gambling machine that plays card. They also have these two (illegal) gambling machines with cameras pointed at them and a sign that say you have to be 18 to use. Did not know gambling was legal in Buena Park, maybe it is on a old Indian burial grounds? They are the old style quarter flip machines, that drop the quarters below, when and if you win. They had dollar bills, $5, $10, $20, and $50 wrapped around gum or a roll of quarters. I tried it late one night and it was addicting, but worthless as the larger bills with items attached blocked most of the quarter drops. There is a smaller chute in front so, most of the quarters fall back into the machine, not in the play area.
They run low on hot water, comes out luke at best warm, so take a shower early!
Overall if you don't mind bad breakfast, old furniture, luke warm showers, but want a cheap stay in a good location to Knotts and the two dinner theatres, then this is your place
