“I love this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

This was our second stay at this hotel and we were equally impressed this time as we had been the first time. The staff are friendly, efficient and cheerful and no request is ignored or delayed - we requested additional bedding for our room and it arrived within minutes with extra pillows and towels as well. The rooms are spacious and clean, linens are crisp and fresh and the beds are comfortable. As expected in early July, the hotel was very busy but I was never awoken or kept awake by noise and I am a light sleeper - the rooms appear to be fairly noise-resistant.
The breakfast experience can take some getting used to as it is very busy but the omelet chef is a pleasure to watch and be served by - he can cook 10 different omelets and still smile and joke with people - people tended to give him a dollar tip per omelet. The breakfast supplies never ran out, even at the end of the breakfast period, and the variety was excellent. Every day there was sausage, bacon, scrambled egg, pancakes, toast, 4 different cereals plus hot oatmeal, made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit, muffins, donuts, hash browns, french toast, bagels and lots of coffee and other drinks. The line-ups can be long and it can be difficult to find a table sometimes but overall, pretty efficient and a pleasant experience in relaxing surroundings.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone with teenagers or small children - the pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained, the fitness center is small but well equipped (age 16+ only) and the business center computers work well. Parking is ample and there is a shuttle that runs to Disneyland every 20 minutes for a small fee.

we arrived here after the hyatt didn't give us our suite that was booked over a month in advance. we had no reservation here, but when we told them of our nightmare with hyatt, they went above and beyond. the staff was so friendly and helpful. anytime we called downstairs for anything, they saw to our needs within minutes. at one point they called our room to see if our food had arrived, and if we were enjoying it. make sure that you take advantage of the free breakfast..i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw it. all of the room service room was amazing. we were there for a wedding, and the bellboy who carried our luggage the day before inquired as to how the wedding was when we checked out. it was completely comfortable there, other than the room being a bit small for the amount of people we had in the room...but considering that we were lucky to even get a room w/o a reservation on a weekend i can't complain. would stay here again, and would recommend to anyone. the lobby is beautiful and staff friendly.

We have just returned from a 4-night stay at the Embassy Suites South in Garden Grove. I have nothing but positive things to say about this hotel.

The room was spacious enough for our family of 6 with 2 double beds and a pull out sofa bed in the living area. There is a mini fridge and sink along with a small table and chairs for either dining or filling out the postcards to send back home. The bathroom was large with the usual complimentary toiletries provided. (don't believe everything you hear about hotels cutting back on the free stuff)

The free breakfast is simply AMAZING, especially when traveling with children. There's an omelet station as well as scrambled eggs, sausage links, bacon, french toast sticks, pancakes, toast, bagels, muffins, doughnuts... Beverages included sodas, coffee, milk and juices. Also icluded is the daily Manager's Reception with complimentary drinks (try the margarita!), sodas for the kids and snacks such as popcorn and chex/trail mix type munchie. Pizza can also be purchased for $2.

We found a parking space every night after returning from Disneyland. There is a $6 per night charge for parking which is not too bad I think, considering the free breakfast and snacks.

Although not within walking distance of the Disneyland resort, it is only a quick 3 minute drive to the Mickey and Friends parking garage. (great set-up there as well. In and out VERY quickly after 16-hour days in the park!)

Overall we highly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would definitely stay again should we travel to the Anaheim area in the future.

At first I was bummed out because I missed the deadline to book a room at the disney hotel but in the end everything worked out. This hotel exceeded my expectations. Rooms were clean and well kept. Furniture and carpet seem new and well kept. Pool was fantastic. The kids had a great time in the pool and by the ponds, especially because of the lion. :) My husband and sister were pleased with the generous breakfast and breakfast options. The hotel service was excellent! Me and my family used the hotel shuttle to get to Disneyland and even the shuttle driver was pleasant. The bed and pillows were super comfy and clean. I really got a chance to relax and my kids got a chance to explore and have fun in the pool and in the rooms. In overall, I highly recommend this hotel.

We had a wonderful time here. My 6 yr old dd loved seeing "Leo" the lion roar and the fish in the stream. The breakfast was wonderful! There were soda, booze and snacks early evening for free. Pizza for 2.00 a slice then too. The rooms were clean and quite. DD got up in the morning and watched tv while we slept undisturbed. I wish we could stay here everytime. My only small fault is that it has a very mediocre pool and spa. I wish that area was spruced up a little and the spa cleaned more.

So, my mom and I decide to take a short trip to Disneyland, during her visit to Las Vegas. We've both used other Embassy Suites in the past, so we settled on this one, based on the location and reviews. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed.
The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was plenty and delicious (although there usually was a nice line to the buffet). The location is right around the corner from Disneyland. The staff (with one exception) was helpful and nice. And to top all of this off, the price was right as well. :)
Although you will have to rent a car (or bring your own) if you're staying here, the location is less than a 10 minute drive.
I would recommend anyone to stay here.

We had just a few days at this hotel but I was impressed. We arrived late and was delivered a crib for my daughter within minutes. The mattress is just cardboard so we folded the quits to make it soft, she slept fine.

The suites are great size, including the bathroom. Its wonderful to have the two rooms when kids are around so they can sleep and you can relax in the living room. The breakfast was pretty good, and the shuttle right outside was extremely convenient to get into Disney. We came back and had supper in the dining room and the service was nice and the food was pretty good and not overly priced.
