Overall a good stay. The location is very remote, far from the hub bub of Anaheim and the resort area. Good for kids good for couples good for business.. Wifi works breakfast is free and good pool is pretty.

Decided to go on a little staycation close to home and this hotel did not disappoint! I was able to relax by the pool, grub on free breakfast, and enjoy a clean room. Only about 10ish minutes to the spectrum and nearby restaurants.

This is the second (and last) time I will stay at this property. Both instances, the rooms were dated, the bathrooms were dirty, and the heating and AC units were pieced together very unprofessionally (there was a ineffective thermostat on the wall, which was not integrated with the HVAC-mounted thermostat.) The TV channel offerings were also very lacking. The TV... More

We had the most unbelievable experience with Fernando Chavez at Hampton Inn. My grandchildren, after a long drive, were promised a swim. The hotel I booked had no pool. All the hotels in the area were booked so we were so depressed and Fernando saved the day by allowing us to swim even though we were not staying at his... More

We stayed here on a Thursday night and a Saturday night. Great location for us, as we were close to family as well as many stores, restaurants, etc. The breakfasts selection was different on each stay! The front-desk staff was friendly and professional!

A typical US business hotel in the mid price range. Helpful staff and reasonably clean. The décor is a little jaded and tired, the pool a little small but as a place to stay it is OK. Nice touches are the images against each room to help you realise you are trying to get into someone else's room! The breakfast... More

It's your basic family friendly hotel. Luckily, I booked my room early so I was able to choose my room away from the elevator. They have complimentary breakfast served from 6 to 10 that gets pretty busy but it's a nice spread. It's located further away from Disneyland but it's not that bad of a drive. Plus, it's better priced... More
