There are a lot of hotels within walking distance of Disneyland that are a lot cheaper than any of the official Disneyland hotels and I’m sure some of them are probably better, but there is something nice about staying on Disney property when you visit a Disney park.
I took a calculated gamble and waited to make my booking until there was a sale and made quite a significant saving as a result so our room was a bit overpriced, but not outrageously expensive.
Paradise Pier is the cheapest of the Disneyland hotels so the facilities are reasonably basic, but it is extremely clean and comfortable. Everything works well and the surroundings are pleasant.
We were upgraded on arrival to a room with a view of the California Adventure park, which was nice. On the downside, we thought we had booked a king bed room, but were given a double double and told they had very few king beds and they were all taken.
It was nice to be able to walk to the parks quite quickly and without dealing with any main roads etc. We accessed the main Disneyland park via Downtown Disney and the California Adventure park through the Grand California Hotel.
Overall, we were satisfied with our stay, but not blown away by it. You pay through the nose to stay in an official Disney hotel, but it could add something to your experience so you may find it a worthwhile expense.
