“A really nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My girl friend and I stayed here while in the Buena Park area for a get away vacation. The location is ideal with much to do in the area and many restaurants to choose from. Shopping is close by and Knott's Berry Farm is just down the street with Disneyland just 5 miles away.

Checkin was a snap for us. Our room was very luxurious and up to day with a better then average selection of channels to choose from. The room was well maintained byt the staff and I would surely recommend this hotel to some who would be looking for a room in this area.

We stayed at the holiday in Buena Park for one week during our family holiday in LA. The hotel.is ideally located for the Disney theme parks with a complimentary shuttle to take and collect.you, near to knotts berry farm and great restaurants and shopping malls, you would however require a car to visit the beaches, Seal and Huntington being the nearest which are beautiful, clean and safe and central LA although the hotel offers downtown tours if you want to sightsee.

The hotel itself presents itself well with a beautiful lobby, marble floors, fireplace and piano with lovely decor throughout. The heated pool area is clean with secure entry only with a guest key and has a nice little garden/courtyard area with a water fountain, table and chairs. The rooms are also nicely decorated with a luxury feel and spacious too. The breakfast and restaurant service is great especially the desk staff who offer good frieny local advice. The holiday in is perfect for famillies, couples and business. Definately value for money.

I went with a friend to Buena Park to go to The Haunt at Knott's Berry Farm. I chose this hotel for the location which it had said in the website was half a smile. It was really double that amount which was still not bad and we ended up walking there and back. There was a bit of a snafu at check-in. I had requested twice that our room had two queens for obvious reasons that I was traveling with a guy friend of mine. Instead we got a King room which was awkward. When I went to inquire at the desk, they said they were sold out of two queen-rooms but that our room most probably had a pull out sofa. I hadn't really looked because when I saw a single bed I kind of ran out of the room to go rectify the situation haha. The person at the front desk said that if it didn't have a pull out couch, they'd bring a rollaway bed and not charge us. The situation wasn't ideal but we made do and overall had a good experience because we really went mostly to go to that even at Knotts. Saturday, before the Haunt we spent the day enjoying the pool and the hot-tub and that was nice though we had to tell the desk our room had not yet been cleaned by late afternoon.

Overall had a good experience but on certain things they could have been more on top of it.

Room Tip: Fourth floor is the executive floor, I think rooms are renovated and bigger.

Stayed here with family/friends and had no major complaints. The hotel is clean, and the housekeeping staff great. Hotel is convenient if you're planning on staying mostly in Orange County. There are no safes in the rooms, and there was only one person on staff after midnight, so check-in and check-out we're both extremely slow. Parking is also a bit scarce, and walls thin, but that didn't keep me up at night. I also wish they had more power outlets in the room, and that the fridge got a bit colder. My biggest complaint would be that the vents and air filters in the room were probably dirty, as all of us spent all of our time in the room sneezing, and woke up congested every morning.

This review is for the presidential suite which we stayed at for Knott's Scary Farm last saturday. The suite itself is football-field large, and fantastic. You could easily house two couples in this suite if you are planning for a group trip to Knotts. We have stayed at rooms half this size that cost more, and this one was a great value (less than $300). It was clean, the bed was soft, both tv's were perfect, the 5th floor view is great with no nosy neighbors outside, or car traffic, so you can throw all of the curtains open, and watch the stars. Multiple couches (one with a pullout bed), and tables/chairs with a champagne server ice bucket and several glasses. The bedroom door locks to keep the kids out. Huge tub (no jacuzzi jets), large shower, and seperate bathrooms. Another cool thing is it has two doors that exit to the hallway, so if someone is asleep in the main room, you can exit to the hallway without going through the living room. The lobby is very nice, and the staff were friendly for the most part except one occasion with the shuttle driver on the way back from Knott's. I stepped in from the outside noise, and couldn't hear what he said, so when I said "what"? he grumpily yelled "WHAT IS YOUR ROOM!?" It was so odd I had to laugh it off, and my daughter was mimicking it on the way back to the hotel. Not a night person I guess. He drove a large bus way too fast on the way back. There are some things that may bother you about the hotel. The carpets in the main hallway to the rooms had some stains, and kinda smelled weird. There was some cracked moulding on the base boards in the hallway. There was a lot of scratched up wallpaper in the hallways. We got back to our room just past midnight to find a large party going on just up the hallway from our presidential suite. It was very noisy, and crowded coming through that area. You enter another hallway through a door at that point, and travel around 25 feet to the suite door. Fortunately the party was about to end. The guests across the hall kept slamming that door to the hallway entrance for at least another two hours, so I'll say this, if you are looking for a romantic suite, this will not be the one for you. If you are looking for a place to have a good time, and party this is the place for you. The halls could use some renovation, but the room itself was great.

On behalf of our entire team, we appreciate your detailed review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the Presidential Suite and it provided enough space and amenities to suit your needs. You may not have been aware, but we've just finalized our room renovations at the hotel. Next up (as you may have guessed based on your comments) hallways and public areas. Once complete, they are sure to address the concerns noted. In terms of service, we have passed along your comments regarding the shuttle service to our Guest Services team to address as your experience was not at all up to our high standards. Thank you for sharing your experience, we've found it very very helpful.

Staff great, free parking is a plus, most importantly comfortable beds and clean room - great sleep! Will definitely return if in area.
Plenty of eateries within walking distance, didn't try hotel restaurant other than breakfast which was lovely.
One female member of bar staff was more interested in chatting on her phone in the back than serving which irritated the guests, but other than that staff very nice and obliging.
Disneyland free shuttle great.

I stayed at Holiday Inn Buena Park on my visit to California with my mother last May. the hotel has warm ambience, humble but classic decorations.
The room is quite spacious and clean, I loved the bed size as well. The bed sheets were also very clean, they had several sizes of pillows with generous amount of 4 pillows on each bed. My sleep was very comfortable during my stay there. the bathroom is okay, quite plain, but the amenities are complete.

The one I should say very impressing from this hotel, is the concierge desk service, which helped us with shuttle, recommend places to visit, and answer any questions we had. We were assisted by a man (too bad I cannot remember his name) who was very helpful and friendly. He showed his sincerity in helping and asnwering our questions. He recommended which places to go based on our interests, and he tried his best to make our trip enjoyable. He spoke quite slow, perhaps because of age factor, but the most memorable thing me and my mom will always engrave in our heart about Holiday Inn Buena Park is his friendliness.

We will surely stay in this hotel again if we visit California.

We sincerely appreciate your comments and feedback. Thank you for allowing us to share in your California vacation with your mother. Noting the date of your stay, it was prior to our room renovations and our upcoming bathroom update. We hope to impress you even more on your next visit to the Anaheim area.
