California Adventure Hotel

My family is doing a one day trip from San Diego to California Adventure. We will arrive 4/11 and want to stay one night for about $100-$150 but would go to $200 if there was something truly exceptional. We will also have a military discount. What recommendations do you have for best hotel? We have little ones and would like something convenient to the park for naptime. (Side question- can we leave and then come back? I just thought of that...)

You may want to check with one of the Disney owned Hotels as they are offering a discount for Military personnel, to see if its within your budget, they dont show what the discount is though.


Most other places to stay are going to offer a pretty good discount for the Military, you would just have to ask for the discount if you call direct.

Yes, you can go in and out at Disneyland as many times as you want to with a ticket during a day. Keep in mind the first time you exit either Park, you would need to get a Hand stamp as you exit.

Are you just visiting California Adventure Park and not Disneyland Park? Are you aware that Military personel can get a 3 day Disneyland Parkhopper for $99? Just the cost of a 1 day 1 Park ticket right now if you only wanted to visit Califonia Adventure Park is going to be $87 per person for adults.

Most of the places closest to the Disneyland Main Entrance are going to be standard Motels, some well rated that are the most convenient walk to Disneyland since there located directly across the street from the Entrance. With a few Hotels in a little farther walking distance, so it really depends on what you are looking for. Your budget should get you any of the standard Motels to stay at and some of the Hotels.

Standard well rated Motels close to the entrance include... the Best Western Park Place Inn.... about a 5 min walk across the street and to the Turnstiles that go into either Park. Camelot Inn...about a 7 min walk, Best Western Anaheim Inn.... about an 8 min walk, Park Vue Inn.... about a 6 min walk, Anaheim Desert Inn.... about a 7 min walk, Candy Cane Inn.... about a 10 min walk with their own free shuttle service.

The closest well rated Hotets would be the Fairfield Inn..... about an 8 min walk, and is a limited services Hotel. Howard Johnsons... also a limited services Hotel about an 11 min walk with Art Shuttle.

Here is a Map of Hotels in the Disneyland area so you can see where things are located. The Disneyland Main Entrance is off of Harbor blvd near where it says "East Shuttle Area" on the Map.


Keep in mind that alot of the better rated places are likely to be booked for your dates already. You will likely have to call direct to see if they have availability at this late of date. The BW Park Place Inn usually does if you call them directly.

the basic room at Disneyland hotel may be good - as it's right there - you could easily go & take a nap, grab a sweater, etc from your room.

But the basic "Disneyland Hotel" is a farther walk than many of the Motels on Harbor Blvd, such as the Park Vue Inn and the Best Western Plus Park Place Inn & Suites, and some of their neighbors. You save a lot of money, and some walking if you opt for the Harbor. Blvd. option.

I always stay at the Hampton Inn in Garden Grove. It is on Harbor just down the street from Disneyland. The rate on the Hilton.com website is $160 for a one bedroom king or two queens with kitchen at the AAA rate. This is more than I usually pay but your close to your date. There is a lack of rooms available. You might call. This hotel is good for the following. Breakfast is included, coffee and tea avaiable 24/7. They have their own bus service to Disneyland. Buy tickets at the front desk. The last time we stayed here we arrived in the morning of our check in to go to Disneyland. We bought our bus tickets, they allowed us to park our car there and we went to the park. Buses do a round trip every half hour so you can come back and take a nap then go back later. We have stayed here many times and have always enjoyed it. Regular rooms have a refrig and microwave as well as wifi. The Embassy Suites next door has a government rate for $145, not sure if this is what you want. They also share the same bus.

Another highly rated hotel is the Candy Cane Inn http://www.candycaneinn.net/ They have a rate of $149 for two queens. This one is right next to Disneyland and has its own shuttle bus or you can walk as well as a continental breakfast. Good luck!
