Little Boy Blue Motel
Ranked #106 of 119 Hotels in Anaheim
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I was little bit scare after reading the comments from previous people but I got to say that it was the opposite of what I had read the owner Lisa is really nice and she was really helpful, is not a fancy motel but is really clean and the beds are really comfy also any time you need towels and you ask for it she never said no.

It's a pretty good walking distance to Disneyland and that's probably the only good thing about this hotel. The hotel looked pretty decent when I looked at on the internet but was the complete opposite from what I thought. The door was stuck and you had to push on it for a while just to get inside. It was hard to retrieve any free WiFi, and the only one that would appear on my laptop, was from the hotel next door. The room looked bare and had no sort of personality. There was also an odd smell to it when you walked in the room. Rather pay for hotel farther away from Disneyland, than stay here again.

Really if you are trying to save money and will bring all essentials - shampoo, conditioner, soap (stuff they have a bit scary) and blow dryer. They do have a new microwave & refidgerator. We did see a few bugs in bathroom at night but not during day. Beds sunk to center - pillows good though. TV new! AC bit noisy. They do have a baby pool in back - we did not use but saw others use it. Maybe try upstairs room.

Room Tip: TRY UPSTAIRS Room, ours was downstairs

This motel is basic.
Breakfast is basic - toast, muffins, oj, coffee
Rooms are clean and new looking.
the beds were comfortable and the air/heat worked.
It is three blocks to Disneyland entrance.
However, the all-year pool was closed.
Worth the small price that we paid.
We left at 8am and returned for lunch and then didn't come back until 10:30p, so for us the place was perfect.

The building maybe old but the furnishings were new: carpet, bed, pillows, TV and shelves. I thought it is a very good value by Anaheim standards. It was $76.05 including tax for a weekend night, free parking. The motel is also reasonably close to Disneyland. We had two toddlers in a stroller and walked 16 minutes from motel to DL's gates.

Though the breakfast was extremely basic, it was better than none. We got everything we paid for. No more, no less.

OK, so I kinda found this hotel by accident, since it's next door neighbor with whom I had a reservation could not accept my credit or debit cards through their machine and were only willing to accept "cash only" for the first night. Sadly, I got a room across the street at the Super 8, in a room that did not have a microwave or refrigerator. The LIttle Boy Blue had newly remodeled rooms that were perfect and had a microwave and refrigerator. It was only $60 a night and had all the amenities I needed. When at Disneyland, you only need a place to sleep and nap, anyway.

Pros: Clean room.
Great shower
New fixtures, new carpeting
microwave
'fridge
big screen LCD TV with cable
A/C
400 yards from the FREE Disneyland shuttle in the Anaheim Garden Walk parking garage (I think the best kept secret in the area). The bus would leave even if I was the only person on it...like a private bus straight to the park with no stops!!!)
Still only a 20 minute walk to or from the parks (which seems like forever after a long day, which is why the free bus shuttle is so amazing)
Friendly staff
Small pool
Coffee, OJ and muffins in the morning (although the coffee is really bad)
VERY affordable
Friendly owners

Cons: No in-room coffee maker
No room safe for personal belongings
No alarm clock

All in all, this will be a great motel to return to, especially given the price and the easy access to the free shuttle. They had rooms available and even let me check in 8 hours early (at 7am instead of 3pm...how accommodating!!).

Room Tip: Ask to see the room you'll be staying in. Some of the rooms are not yet completely remodeled fro...

I stayed at this motel. Everything was clean and new. I got a great rate. Service was nice. I found out the new owners had renovated the property recently and I thought they did a great job. I was shocked by the old pictures posted on Trip advisor. This motel is much better than before. I would stay here again. I didn't end up taking pictures of the property. Trip advisor needs to update the photos of the new motel.
