I booked a room here last minute because all the other lower priced hotels were not available. This particular place always has really good prices but I never realized how close to Disneyland it is. Don't get me wrong, you can't walk to the park but it is a 10-15 minute drive. Not bad when you compare the cost.
So check-in was very fast and friendly. I wanted to pay cash but with the $100 deposit I would have to drive to a bank, the lady at the desk gave me another option and didn't give me a hard time at all. I thought she was awesome.
Parking is great. To get there is a little bit of a hassle but if you know how to drive I'm sure you'll find a way. The pool was not available, which in July is more than disappointing. If this is important ask before booking as I got no explanation nor did I ask.
I got (according to the clerk) one of the smallest rooms in property 117. It was in no way small at all. It was very clean and had a super comfy bed. In fact as I checked out someone else was complementing the comfortable beds. Linen was crisp and clean. The AC worked very, very well! One of the coldest I've had in a long while. The shower and fridge also worked great. There was no mold or funny smells, no stains that I could see anywhere. I really have absolutely no complaints.
FYI There are under no circumstances any visitors allowed in your room. I didn't have a problem with this rule but I noticed some people weren't happy about it. The issue in my opinion was handled very tactful but it could be an issue especially when a larger extended family are staying at other sites.
I think this place is great and for the price can't be passed up. If you're not looking for frills this would be a great place to stay. I'm happy and will return.
