“Inexpensive, clean, close to the Park. What more could you want?”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

For the price, you can't do better if you are going to spend the weekend at Disneyland. I was here on business and didn't really expect much for the inexpensive rate I was quoted. However was pleasantly surprised at the hotel style entry, and the fact that it was directly across the street from the Park. The rooms are a bit far to walk to, and are decidedly "old style" and could probably use a renovation. However they were clean and had nice balconies, and were surrounded by green areas. Great place for the kids to run around if they still have energy after a day at the park. Definitely a place to consider, especially if you have kids and are on a budget (and who isn't?).

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. It is great to hear that you enjoyed our balconies, and they your children spent time playing in our outdoor space. Our close distance to Disney sure does make it convenient to visit the park. We hope to welcome you and your family again soon.

Property is across from Disney and 1 block from the convention center. Price is very reasonable and the complex is only 2 stories tall throughout.

It is nice that you can drive up to your building and each room has a patio or balcony

Clean enough but getting a little worn around the edges

Overall I would return for the friendly staff and reasonable rates

In a really great location as it's only a 5-10 minute walk to Disneyland. We only stayed for 2 nights but as we were going to Disneyland all we needed was somewhere to sleep so this place was perfect. Fairly basic rooms in an only average complex but for the low price that we paid we were very satisfied. Front desk reception were really helpful and incredibly friendly.

We stayed the last weekend of January in room 529. The hotel is old and is in bad need of some refurbishment. We had stayed there several years ago so knew what to expect and were only looking for a clean place to sleep. We have annual passes so we need a cost effective place to stay for quickie trips to Disneyland. The room appeared to be clean and I did my usual bed bug search around the bed, headboard, mattress, etc and found nothing. As other reviews have noted, the carpet was nasty - made our socks black after just a few minutes. HOWEVER, three days after we got home, I noticed my arm was itching and when I looked I found 6 red bumps (in two straight lines) that were very itchy and red, almost blistery looking. The bites resembled mosquito bites but I live in Colorado and it's January so, no mosquitoes and it was cool at Disneyland so I had on long sleeves. After MUCH internet searching, looking at pictures and descriptions, etc, I'm afraid they are bed bug bites. Apparently, it can take up to two weeks for them to appear and they often tend to bite in straight lines. There are no recent reports of bed bugs at the Plaza (I checked before we went) so I cannot say for sure that they are bed bug bites but I also cannot rule it out. I will not be staying at the Plaza again as it is not worth the risk - I'm really hoping we didn't carry some hitchhikers home this time.

Greetings Heidi,
We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay with us. We take our guest reviews very seriously, and have done an extensive inspection of room 529. After a full inspection of the entire room by multiple associates, we can guarantee that the room does not have bed bugs or any other insects that could have caused the bumps you are referring to. Additionally, we have not been advised of any such cases from other guests, and would encourage you to share your concerns with us while on-property so that we may address them immediately, and help to better your stay. We are very sorry that you have experienced this discomfort, but ensure you that it was not our property that you received the bites from. Kind regards.

Value for money after all you only need a place to sleep , shower, and store your stuff. Desk staff very helpful noticed that we are a return guess and gave us the closet room to everything, pool, shop, desk , laundry , games room, not overly big rooms but big enough for 4, patio rooms are better cos you can sit out with more room than a balcony room , bathroom water pressure isn't the best but it does the job ,5 mins from Disneyland, 2 min to bus stop for tours to pick you up , why pay more when your out all day either shopping, Disneyland parks, or touring. We are staying here again in 12 weeks , please feel free to ask me anything about this hotel and I can tell you, don't waste money staying in expensive hotels keep your saving for shopping ..lol , stay here!!! kids under 17 stay free, kids under 9 eat at buffet breakfast free with paying adult. Never had a problem in the 4 times we have stayed here. Thanks Anaheim Plaza ,c u soon

Room Tip: Patio rooms are better no stairs to climb.

After reading some of the negative reviews here on tripadvisor my husband and I were a little hesitant about booking a room at this hotel. However, being a smoker my choices of places to stay are limited. AND we wanted to be in walking distance to Disneyland.
We checked in early and a room was ready for us. We were also able to buy our hopper tickets at the front desk at the same cost as Disneyland.
When we first walked into our room I was expected to smell cigarettes, but did not. At first I thought they accidentally gave us a non-smoking room. I then noticed that there wasn't any ashtrays around. I called the front desk and within 5 minutes I had an ashtray.
It was also a nice surprise to have a balcony! I was able to step outside to smoke, and it was also great getting that cool breeze.
The room was clean and had everything we needed..... including microwave and refrigerator. We were sure to pack our slippers, though, because some of the reviewers here complained about the carpets being dirty. We had no problem with that.
The place is old, and shows it's age. But for the money we felt we got a pretty good deal. They don't offer free wi-fi, and there's no free breakfast, either. I paid the $10.00 per day for internet service, and we packed our own breakfast, so this was not a problem for us. Staying here was still cheaper than the "other" hotel we normally stay at in Anaheim (which was already booked).
The only complaint I have (if you even want to call it that) was that their ice machine is on a timer. You can only get 1 bucket of ice every 2 minutes. We thought that was a little ridiculous, but we only needed to fill our cooler once so it wasn't that big of a deal.
We would definitly stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Our room was way in the back.... away from traffic noise and very close walking distance to the mall...
