“The perfect place to stay while at Knotts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

If you are picky about perfect grout in the bathroom then you will not like it here, however, there were many new/updated fixtures and furniture in our room; like granite counter tops and a flat screen, they gave us a gift basket of candy & wine, wifi, shuttle service to Knott's and Disneyland, a substantial free breakfast and free parking while we literally walked across the street to go to Knott's berry Farm for the day. The location and the staff made it easy to stay here also the grounds were super cute especially when lit up at night. All the staff were jovial and genuinely seemed to like working there. Albert deserves a raise!

I didn't have any issues with the deposit, I did sign for it but it was never charged to my card.

Everybody loved staying here my little kids and my Wednesday Adams teenager. It wasn't perfect but it was perfect for us. Now that we are season pass holders I cant imagine why we would stay anywhere else.

Booked this hotel through hotels.com and was excited to stay here when we visited Anaheim for 2 nights. It was wonderful to find a welcome letter personally address to us along with a gift basket! The room is a typical room but was nice enough for us. Hotel is close by lots of places to eat and activities. Our first night we walked to dinner. There's a water park right across the road as well. The whole complex was in good repair from what we could see except for the mattress that was leaning against the wall in the alley. I thought they would keep that hidden since it looks bad. Lobby always had popcorn and cookies for guest, if they wanted some. The elevator was a welcome sight since we got a 2nd floor room. Breakfast was nice and hot. The only thing that was a problem was that the exhaust fan did not work in the bathroom and it was filled with dust. This seemed to be a common problem with many of the hotels we stayed in on this trip, which was unfortunate. I did let the front desk know as we were leaving. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable. There's also a shuttle (I believe free) that will stop at the hotel and take you to the theme parks that's close by so you don't have to pay for parking.

The following review is the one I posted originally back in July. I still stand by it, with one warning. It's not such a value when you don't get your $50 "deposit" back!! Upon check-in, they took the deposit by credit card. This was immediately charged to my account. Upon check out the next day, I received a deposit refund receipt, and assumed it would be refunded immediately. After I got home, I waited a month, as the bank recommended, still no refund. I tried to contact the hotel (there is no email!), and eventually wrote them a letter. No refund. I wasn't able to stop payment via the bank because (stupid me) I lost the receipt.

Anyway, the following review still stands, but if you're not careful, it may be more expensive than you planned. I recommend paying the deposit in cash so that you can be SURE it is being refunded when you check out!

Original review:
I'd read some mixed reviews but the Best Host Inn was perfect for our needs - a great value for the price. The room (#312) was spacious, seemed newly-renovated and clean. The two queen beds were comfortable and with four fluffy pillows each. Nice large TV, and extras like coffeepot and microwave in the room. We arrived late (11:30 pm) but the staff was welcoming. There was a nice welcome basket in the room (wine, glasses, bottled water, candy, chips, etc.). Wifi in the rooms was free and worked just fine. Free self-serve breakfast (egg rounds, sausage, potatoes, cereal, yogurt, etc.) wasn't 5-star but it was fine and my kids loved the make-your-own fresh waffles! Reception offers complimentary cookies, coffee, and cold drinks as well as computer usage. There is a free shuttle to Disneyland and other attractions (Knott's Soak City is right across the street!), although we didn't make use of it. Free parking, as well. Other clientele seemed to be mostly families. Drawbacks: Noise from the street was occasional (especially motorcycles) but not too disturbing. Also, you can't really open the curtain for light because people walk by and there is no privacy. We were happy with the Best Host Inn and all in all, it was a very good value.

Room Tip: We were in #312, in the rear building. Other travelers complained about the quality of the room, la...

We chose this place last minute when we got tired from driving. Prior to arriving, we called ahead and David answered. He reserved a room for us no questions asked! Once we arrived, our room was waiting and he matched the price we found on hotels.com. We even got a complimentary gift basket with wine, snacks, candy and water! Our room was very clean and included a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and then we even had an awesome continental breakfast. Thank you David! We WILL be back!

We enjoyed this property because it was safe, convenient and close to Disney and Knott's Berry Farm. This is an older "motel" property that has been given a nice facelift and nicely kept. The outdoor halls and elevator could use some freshening up (not bad though), but the inside of our room was clean and all new.
Great for the night stay.
Also located across the street from Walgreens.

The cable came in a little staticy but it was ok since we didn't spend too much time in the room watching television. Comfortable beds,enjoyed the shower, good breakfast selection. Will definitely consider this Inn for a return visit.

We chose this hotel due to the proximity to Knott's Berry Farm. Being able to stay within walking distance during the Scary Farm was definitely a big plus for us.

The staff were very friendly at both check-in and check-out. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was even a welcome basket in the room, which included snacks, candies, bottles of water, and a bottle of wine. Talk about an unexpected and pleasant surprise!

The room had a mini-fridge, as well as a coffee maker, which I was grateful for. It's nice not having to leave the room to grab that first morning cup of joe.

The hotel does offer a full breakfast, although after a late night at Knott's, we missed it. They did, however, have coffee, fruit, cookies and popcorn available in the lobby.

Our only complaint had nothing to do with the hotel itself or the staff, but rather with some of our fellow occupants. Apparently some people don't realize that stomping around the walkways outside other rooms, using their outdoor voices while doing so, and letting their young children run amok, is disrespectful toward others who are staying at the hotel and who might want to sleep in.
