Having lived in the Fountain Valley/Huntington Beach area for over 30 years, I knew just where I wanted to stay when I brought my nephews to Southern California for a Disneyland visit. This Residence Inn is farther away from Disneyland than its other properties, but we only were doing Disney one day. Its location, right next to the 405 freeway, made it very convenient to get to all the other places we wanted to visit on our trip, such as Seal Beach, Huntington Beach and the LA Zoo.
We had a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit near the sports court. It was just perfect for 2 adults and two children (and would have accommodated two more on the sofa bed, but we didn't need it). There are supermarkets and a 99-cent store within a couple of blocks so we could get groceries and pool/beach toys very inexpensively. The breakfasts every morning were quite good with a lot of variety and the hot dishes changed daily. My boys loved being able to choose their breakfasts every day. There is an "evening social" on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We only made it one evening and it provided BBQ hamburgers and a salad bar and beverages for both adults and children. What more could you ask for?
But the absolute best part of this hotel is the excellent service from the staff. The maintenance staff and the pool cleaning guys went out of their way to greet us in the morning on our way to breakfast and "high-fived" the little boys (who thought that was pretty cool). The eating area staff made sure we had everything we needed and that asked us often if everything was OK. The front desk staff was outstanding as well - they made sure that all of our needs were met and they were so friendly.
I just can't thank the staff enough for making our stay so very enjoyable. Everything else was great too - the location, the size and cleanliness of the room - Everything!
Our room was next to the sports court, so the only sleep interruption we had was by two idiot hotel...
