We have been to Anaheim multiple times over the years and came here with no intention of doing the Disney or Universal theme parks. As others have mentioned, the Anaheim Resort Transport stops on the property. Depending on how many there are in your group this may well work out cheaper than parking at places like Disney.
I notice that a couple of other reviewers have commented that it is not really close to the local shops and restaurants. I would agree with this (we had rented a car).
Overall the stay was absolutely fine apart from:
The computers in the lobby were not working (not a major issue as I have a smart phone and they provide free Wi-Fi) so when I wanted to print off a booking confirmation I went next door to the Staybridge Suites that is part of the same site (as suggested by reception).
The "hiccup" was that I was given 1 voucher for 1 free breakfast for every night of the stay (I am a Priority Club Member). As this was 6 nights and there were 3 of us I thought we would we use 3 each for 2 days. The "duty manager" initially made quite a fuss over this and said it was not possible. In they end they relented and agreed that we could use the vouchers as I wanted. My wife however was not impressed with the initial "attitude" and so we ate breakfast out after the first two mornings using up the vouchers!
Apart from the breakfast issue the staff were great and very friendly. No problem with the room (clean and well maintained) apart from the fact that the air conditioning was a bit loud.
I would be happy to return here in the future.
