“Great room and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We stayed at the Carousel for a week during our trip to Disneyland. The room was clean and spacious for two people. The in-room safe was very useful and you can program your own combination. I appreciate the Carousel's efforts to go green - requesting only washing the linens every two or three days; of course, they are more than happy to accommodate daily washing, if requested. The distance from the Disneyland entrance was super close (across the street) and there are plenty of reasonably-priced restaurants within walking distance, too. The only downfalls we experienced were the shower curtains were cloth instead of plastic which meant they soaked up water from the shower and spilled it onto the floor. We were constantly using our towels to soak up the water. The other thing wasn't necessarily a downfall, just not expected - you cannot bring the continental breakfast back to the room. I really enjoy drinking my morning coffee while getting ready, but instead we had to use time to eat/drink breakfast in the common eating area. Next time I stay at the Carousel I'll just remember to bring my travel coffee mug! Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you're going to Disneyland.

Stayed here with family in a 2 bedroom suite. It had everything we needed and was a short walk to Disneyland. It was great as I have a toddler who needed to go back to the hotel for a nap each day. Price was reasonable, but I was a bit disappointed that we had to pay for parking. Breakfast was included, but was a little less than appetizing. Hard boiled eggs, oatmeal and pastries were all they so we ate elsewhere. All in all it was a nice place to stay and I would definitely stay again.

What a fantastic location, directly across the street from the entrance to Disneyland. The rooms are clean and come with a refrigerator and microwave. However, a number of things just don't make this the place of choice for next time. The floors are laminate and not carpeted. They clean it with something that makes it sticky, so we wore our flip-flops all the time. The toilet ran water and although we told the front desk, no one came to fix it. Also the shower water creeped out and drenched the floor. We just kept towels on the floor to soak it up, but the mildew smell continued... We also told the front desk and suggested a splash guard... The breakfast food was okay, but we passed for a better quality meal elsewhere. Very nice - no stinky smoking smells. Great for a family on a tight budget, but we'll probably spring for nicer accommodations next time.

Not very clean, old and breakfast was horrible. Too many rules and have to pay for parking. Can not carry breakfast items to room. Had to smoke near the parking lot. No security to speak of. I guess it was OK but only due to it's location. I could be at Disneyland in 7 minutes walk.

We stayed here the last weekend of January, 2013. We booked their Resort Suite--Rm 410; two bedrooms and two bathrooms for 3 adults and 2 children. The first room as you enter is like a standard motel room, with two queen beds, a large tile/ granite vanity area and separate bathtub/toilet. The second bedroom, entered at the rear of the other room, has a California (extra large) king bed, a microwave and fridge in a cabinet, and another large vanity area w/separate tub/toilet. This worked very well rather than booking two separate rooms, which might not have been near each other. The two rooms are not large, but were very clean, well vacuumed and appeared freshly renovated. Beds were very comfortable. One can hear some noise from the corridor outside, especially rolling suitcases, but nothing loud at night while we were there. The second (king bed) room is completely enclosed and separate from the corridor, and very quiet. It can get stuffy, so we left the door between the rooms ajar for air cirulation.

The swimming pool was small but heated to near bathtub temp while we were there during rather chilly weather for Calif. A great plus was taking to kids to watch the fireworks in the evening from the fifth floor breakfast room. The included breakfast was simple but in that category of hotel/motel about what we usually find, with an added plus of peeled hard boiled eggs and hot biscuits and gravy. There are toasters, Danish rolls, (never saw the bagels mentioned in a review below), bowls of oranges and apples, as well as coffee, apple and orange juice, ice water, and instant oatmeal. We brought in our kids' favorite cereal and preferred a quick breakfast there rather than Mc D's, pancakes at IHOP or in D-land for $$$$. Was not overcrowded when we were there, usually between 7-8 am.

We would stay here again when on a short visit to Disneyland. For those planning a longer stay at Disney and surrounding attractions, and wanting more of a destination resort feel, perhaps this wouldn't be their choice, but Carousel Inn worked very well for us.

Most of all, we loved being able to walk across the street to the D-land entrance, and that is our priority when spending a few days at Disneyland.

Room Tip: Their Resort Suite is great for a large family--2 bathrooms really help in the morning.

The hotel itself was alright. The breakfast was terrible. Stale bagles, yogurt and some fruit for the most part. There werent nearly enough seats for everyone to sit down and eat. The wouldnt allow you to take cups or plates out of the banquet area so you couldnt eat in your room. If there wasnt a table to sit at, you had to stand to eat your food. We actually only ate the free breakfast their once. Decided we would rather pay for a warm breakfast somewhere else where we didnt have to fight for a table. The room was ok. Nothing special. There was hair stuck to the lamp next to my bed which grosed me out when i was laying in bed. Im not sure how often they do a top to bottom clean. The only nice thing about the hotel was that it wasnt too expensive and we could walk to disneyland from the hotel. We werent in the room much.. just to sleep really. Might stay there again but will definantly shop around first and make sure I cant find something better.

Rate and location (across from Disneyland) were good. Beds comfortable (I have a bad back) but floor was filthy-they sweep but don't mop anywhere but bathrooms. Door wouldn't close properly so we found it open upon returning from Disneyland (maid had not closed it hard enough). Our toilet leaked and hand held showerhead was broken. Breakfast was barely adequate although danish were good. No yogurt, only cornflakes, raisin bran, n oatmeal for cereal. Apples n oranges only, no other fruit. Staff very nice. Kind of a near miss, mostly because of maintenance issues. And what is the "resort fee" about???

Room Tip: check door and room prior to accepting
