Reviewed June 9, 2012

My daughter and I stayed here for a short getaway to Disneyland.
Our family goes to Disneyland frequently and have stayed at the Disney Resort Hotels... Have to say, the staff here was much friendlier and responsive. They treated us like they wanted us there and that they weren't "just doing us a favor."
The room was clean and bright. We also stayed on the ground floor. I agree with another review, that the ceiling in low, but a complaint? How are they going to change what has already been built (and not by mamagement)? What I liked is that I felt safe on the ground floor, which is saying a lot since we were mother and daughter alone. The air conditioner was very quiet, which you don't find too often in hotels.
We took the shuttle to and from the park, which was also great. Never felt overcrowded or stuffy. The drivers were nice and helpful. And for the price of everything put together, it is a steal on the convenience level.
My ONLY complaint would be that the pillows on the bed are the size of sofa throw pillows, and aren't really fit for sleeping. Would really perfer that they get regular size pillows that fit the bed.
Wonderful stay, wonderful people. Food in the restraunt was great.
We will be coming back with the whole family and booking the 2 bedroom suite that they told me about. Wish you would post some pictures of it.
Thank you for the great time!!!!! You guys are wonderful!! You should be proud. Keep it up

We stayed here for two days while visiting Disneyland. The hotel was clean and simple with ample parking. The bed was comfortable and a choice of pillows was nice. Overall location was good, but we did opt to drive to Disneyland anyway. The staff was nice. If I had one minor complaint, it was that we had to wait in a pretty long line when we checked in.

Room Tip: Building 4 had plenty of available parking.

Great hotel and staff. A little longer than 1 blk more like 2 because you have to walk through downtown Disney as well. Remember to save the walking for Disneyland or CA Adventure and purchase (great buy) ART bus transfer from front desk. This Hotel is the 1st stop on your return from park to hotel! Would definitely stay here again :)

I booked this room using some airline miles so that is the only reason I picked this place. It's okay but I don't think I would stay here again.

Pros:
- the room was pretty spacious
- easy to find off the freeway
- Free parking
- The staff was nice
- NIce selection of Bath & Body works soaps.

Cons:
- The hotel is suppose to be within "walking distance" from Disneyland. It's 2/10th a mile from the entrance of Downtown Disney then you walk through that onto Disneyland. More like a 20 minute walk. Just seemed like a long walk and there was NO shuttle service.
- We stayed on the bottom level and the ceilings seemed pretty low and dark.
- The walls needed to be wiped down
- Carpet needs to be cleaned
- Bathroom was really small and the fan was probably on it's last leg.

Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your experience with us. I have shared your comments with my staff and we are working diligently to improve everything we can in our rooms. I also want everyone to know that there is a somewhat "secret" entrance to Disneyland in Downtown Disney. There is a Monorail stop just past the entrance to Downtown Disney and it's a great way to enter the park. Many of our guests tell us they love disembarking in the middle of Disney right next to the Matterhorn and Nemo's Submarine Ride!

Thanks again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon!

I agree with other reviewers. It is more than 1 block to Disneyland but if you walk around to the parking lot for the Mickey and Friends parking structure you can catch the free Disney shuttle the rest of the way to the park.
Our room was clean and comfortable and quiet. Check-in was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room included a breakfast voucher and all I can say is when the guy brings you a carafe of orange juice make sure he is clear what that is going to cost you. He poured our glasses full and left the carafe on the table. When the bill came the price for a carafe of orange juice was very pricey. I pointed out to the cashier that we hadn't ordered a whole carafe and they adjusted the bill with no problems.
We will be staying here again.

We found this Holiday Inn to be convenient, reasonable walk to Downtown Disney about 10 minutes. The first day we took the shuttle but for the other three days we walked to and from Disneyland. The neighborhood felt safe walking at night with the family.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and willing to assist always. The rooms were reasonable and had everything that we needed. Overall I would recommend to others, as a family of five we felt this hotel was great for us.

Everyone at this Holiday Inn was very friendly. What impressed me most was that we were greeted by every staff member we encountered- from the front desk each time we walked through the lobby to the housekeepers and engineers we passed in the hallway.

The furniture was a bit worn, but the room was clean. The blackout curtains were great for our toddler's afternoon nap!

We were a bit concerned by the previous reviews about the walk to Disneyland. On the first day, it took about 25 minutes to walk from the hotel to the Disneyland gates, since we had to walk through "Downtown Disney". But we found that if you stop at the "Mickey and Friends" parking structure, you can pick up the tram there and cut about 15 minutes off the walk.

Thank you very much for letting us know about your time with us. I'll be sure to share your comments with all of our staff. As an FYI for the next time you stay with us, there is a park entrance just steps after the Downtown Disney entrance. It's a Monorail stop and is a great way to enter the park in style! We are also getting new furniture in our rooms in the next 30-60 days.

We hope to see you and your family again soon!
