“Great Alternative to Disney Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2006

We stayed at the Candy Cane Inn from May 29 through June 2 of this year. The grounds are beautiful and it is close to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Like other reviews I read, it seemed that the shuttle bus was alway there waiting for us. The rooms are plain but clean. The washrooms could do with some updating, but the cleaning service is top-knotch. Breakfast was simple, pleantiful and more than we needed. We paid $550 for 4 nights, Disney wanted $1300. We are planning to go back again next year. if you want somewhere central to Disney, a place to sleep and swim, we highly recommend the Candy Cane.

We loved the Candy Cane Inn and thought it was a great over-all value. We walked to Disneyland most of the time but did use the shuttle a few times. The rooms are wonderful, beds so comfy and the property is so beautiful and full of flowers and plants, the pool is small but really nice and the breakfast is really nice and enjoyed eating breakfast out by the pool all three mornings. only downside is that breakfast quits serving at 9:00am and so the one morning we could sleep in we would have missed breakfast so we went ahead and drug out of bed a little earlier than we wanted to!!! (this was after three straight really early days up and to the parks!) anyway, we used the laundry room and it was clean and stocked with the essentials and overall give this hotel a very high recommendation. we would stay there again most likely but there are definatly several hotels in the same price range that are a bit closer to the park front gate that we would ck into as well before booking the Candy Cane. the walk was a little further than we were led to believe by the hotel website. I think the hotel we would ck out would be the Carrousel which a friend stayed at the week before we were there and said it was really good and they pd about $30 less per nite than we did. it was booked when i tried to make reservations there.

We just got back from Disneyland and stayed at the Candy Cane Inn in Anaheim. The place has lovely foliage, but unfortunately, we discovered that the foliage attracts and is full of rats! Thankfully, we never saw any in the room, but I never felt comfortable after seeing all the rats on the balcony/walkway and tree across from our first room. We saw one on the balcony/walkway of the first floor and at least 4 in the tree just outside that room.

When we complained, the manager very obviously feigned surprise and allowed us to move to another room that was not so close to a tree and knocked $10 off our nightly rate, but I felt disgusting the rest of the time I was there. The room we moved to was supposedly an "upgraded" room, which I guess just meant it was farther from the street, since it was older, not as nice/updated, and had a smaller bathroom.

One word to sum up our experience: "yuck!"

For the first time in three years, we chose a non-Disney property to call home and were very pleasantly surprised by the Candy Cane. Upon arrival we were instantly given access to our room and found it to be very clean and comfotable, albeit rather small.

Service from hotel personnel was outstanding. On two different occasions we had to contact guest services and in both instances someone was at our door ready to assist us within two minutes. It's been written several times already, but I can't say enough about the free morning breakfast. My family really enjoyed the selection of food available and the ambiance of eating by the pool. A free, direct shuttle was always available to take us to Disneyland, but we chose to walk each day as there is a nicely landscaped "trail" that only requires you to cross one intersection.

For future trips, I would definitely consider staying at the Candy Cane Inn. I would recommend upgrading to a deluxe room to gain a little more square footage, especially if you need to add a crib to your room, but aside from room size, everything else was very satisfying.

Upon arrival, I was a bit was surprised at how small the hotel appeared but what a gem it turned out to be. The rooms were spotlessly clean plus the choice you got for breakfast was endless. The swimming pool was a big hit with my children and was just what we all needed after a day in Disney. Plus the hotel is within walking distance of Disney but they offered a free shuttle bus running twice an hour. It was excellant value for money and would definately go back and recommend to others

We stayed at the Candy Cane Inn 6/9-6/11 and were pleasantly surprised!!!! The staff was super friendly, the room was beautiful and CLEAN, breakfast was fantastic, the gym was sparkling clean and adequate with a few pieces of equipment and the walk to the park was easy!!!! It was nice to know the shuttle was available if needed but we walked every time. We were on the 2nd floor and when inside our room didn't hear ANYTHING! In fact, even walking back and forth to the park right by the pool the noise level was at a minimum. The mini-fridge was a welcome surprise. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful! We felt like we were at a secluded resort!

We have, in the past, stayed at the Fairfield (awful room, no gym, no breakfast), Radisson Maingate (absolutely filthy, no breakfast) and Hilton Garden Inn (dirty, a/c didn't work) and the Candy Cane Inn is a GEM in comparison.

I am so thankful that we listened to the positive reviews on here and not the negative. We will never stay anywhere else when visiting Disneyland!

My wife and two daughters spent three nights (June 1-3) at the Candy Cane Inn and found it to be very nice. The only minor drawback was the size of the room but we were unable to get a premium sized one. The upstairs room we had was very quiet at night and allowed us to enjoy the fireworks show every night. We were very pleased with the cleanliness, comfort and convenience. We walked every day to Disneyland (four year old included) and enjoyed the five minute exercise. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and we found plenty of room around the pool.

The staff was courteous and immediately checked out an air conditioning problem and resolved it. I highly recommend the Candy Cane Inn as a convenient and inexpensive way to enjoy Disneyland.
