“Disneyland with large family then this is THE hotel for you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

My husband and I and our 4 children stayed here for a week long vacation to Disneyland. This hotel is as about as perfect as one can get when traveling as a family. Excellent front desk staff Chantel went above and beyond as did ALL the other ladies as well. The buffet breakfast is above average with many choices hot and cold and stocked very well. Pool and jacuzzi very clean, the free evening reception was very timely and good a decent dinner for free! Gift shop laundry room small business center and arcade all are a nice touch.We did have 1 plumbing prob but they upgraded our room and handled it with grace and ease. I am so impressed with this residence inn i will not stay anywhere else when we come to anahaim! Parking is free and plentiful, starbucks can be accessed thru back area of pool inside hyatt next door which was great. Not the closest hotel, far walk but short short drive. I give it a big thumbs up!

Just got back last night and I had to write a review on this hotel. I was travelling with my husband, our three kids (7,4 and 1) and my parents and sister. We had a two bdrm 2 bath kids suite and they had a 2 bdrm, 2 bath suite. I have travelled in this large group before to other hotels and been very disspointed but this time was awesome! We got there early and forgot to ask for early check in but they accomodated us right away. In the morning there is a full breakfast buffet with everything you could possibly want and all you can eat. The kids can eat in a kids area with a big screen playing disney movies every morning. There are Barbeque facilities which we used twice and was great. The pool is awesome because it's shallow enough that smaller kids can enjoy it. The cleaning staff did a great job promptly every day while we were at disneyland, even did our dirty dishes. The shuttle to disneyland is the first stop picking up and dropping off so it's very convenient. When we had finished our long days at disneyland and the kids were tired we came back to the hotel to a free meal (mon-thur) already waiting for us. The kids loved it because again they could pick what they wanted (as much as they wanted) and sit in the kids area while another disney movie was on and just veg out. The staff were amazing and really friendly, very accomodating. As we were traveling with a baby, I always feel concerned about safety around pools but in this case the pool was completely fenced in and locked and the rest of the rear area was very kid friendly with a basketball court and some open walking area so our toddler could rome free fairly well. I would stay at this hotel over any other in the area, we will be back for our next Disney vacation. Thanks for a great experience!

This is a great hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet is great - I mean - GREAT!

My only quibble, and it is a quibble, is that the bus service which serves this hotel runs on a 30 minute cycle which can mean a long wait for the bus and a long trip to the Magic Kingdom.

But the hotel is fantastic.

We just returned from the Residence Inn Anaheim after staying 3 nights in early June 2010. This hotel compares less favorably to our other excellent stay at the Residence Inn in Alexandria, VA. The pluses are many with a few minuses. We reserved a 2 bedroom suite with a king in one bedroom and two queens in the other bedroom, plus sofa bed. The room has a great layout with living room, very nice kitchen, table for 4, sofa (room holds 8 with 2 on sofa bed!) and coffee table. Separate bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice. Three non-flat screen TV's are included. Our major complaint was that only 2 rooms of this type were available due to renovations that weren't mentioned on the hotel web site. We had the choice of two locations, both on lower floors on a busy street (Harbor Blvd) next to a bus stop. We could hear traffic and bus alarm. Staff told us other room locations were not available due to room renovations even though we made reservations several months ago and requested a "higher floor". A maintenance worker confirmed the renovation work and said that this work is usually done in the winter but was delayed this year due to a budget delay.

That said, the room was very clean, nice and comfortable after getting used to the street sounds. It was a big money saver for 5 people. Free parking and free breakfast included. The nightly (Mon - Thur) manager's reception was not close to the manager's reception in Alexandria, VA. We only ate at the hotel one night and enjoyed dull pasta and rock hard garlic bread with ok salad. The breakfast was mostly good with a huge hot and cold selection with ample seating including a kids area with Disney movie etc. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to Disneyland (left on Harbor, left on Ball Rd, then left into Disney parking area). The pool is large with max depth of 5.5 ft. Separate small toddler pool and a separate hot tub that was quite nice. This is definitely a family hotel with many kids from zero to 100 years old. Keep you eyes open and be careful with the hot drinks. This hotel is a good deal and the pluses outweigh the minuses.

We will never stay in another hotel again while in Anaheim. This hotel has all the comforts of home including a separate bedroom for the kids and a full kitchen. A complimentary FULL breakfast every morning, basketball court, three pools, and barbeques to use on the patio make this hotel the best!
If you are visiting Disneyland with kids, this is the place to stay.

We stayed at this hotel for my husband's birthday and our daughter's first visit to Disneyland. The front desk staff (Brianne) who checked us in was very helpful and friendly. Their buffet breakfast is the best!!! So much to choose from! The staff that serves it in the morning are friendly too! The hotel is in a very good location. Close to a lot of restaurants and Target. We will stay at this hotel again!

The rooms looked great, the staff was helpful.
I took a van shuttle from the airport and that was a husstle had to wait 45 min till the shuttle filled up. On the return the hotel recommended a sedan service & to my surprise it was only $45 for all4 of us and they provided a car seat and a booster for my 1year old and for the 4yr old free of charge. I highly recommend this service. the name of the company is Amg transportation 714-476-9453 overall my experience at the hotel was great
