3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

The room was neat and clean. It was not "new", but had no major flaws. There was a microwave, refrigerator and a safe.The staff was nice, helpful and accomodating. The location to DIsneyland, our reason for the stay, was within about 6 miles. We considerd the free shuttle service to Disney, but decided against it because of the times it was available. The shuttle left the hotel at 9:30 am and returned at 8:00pm. We wanted to be there earlier than 9:30 and wanted to stay to see the 9:00pm firework show. It was a nice free service, but not convenient for our needs. Hotel was easy to locate. Our teenage boys liked the free continental breakfast which included make your own hot waffles-always a big hit. We'd stay there again!

This was the last hotel we stayed at in a 5 week family trip around the states. The accommodation here was definitely the worst of the 7 hotels. The decor was so outdated and in severe need of a total refurbishment. There was nails falling out, carpet edging coming away, power plugs loose on the wall. And the pillows. Like someone had cut up some foam with a chainsaw and stuffed it into a pillow case. Didnt worry too much as we were just there to sleep and biding time to get back home.
The staff were friendly enough and let us store our luggage prior to checking in and after we had to checkout. The rooms were kept tidy enough.
Location was okay and having a shuttle was a good touch.
All in all very average and probably wouldnt stay here again...

Room Tip: Try to get one on a lower floor. We had to get 2 on the upper level and all you get is the waft of c...
