We booked our stay at the Best Western Raffles thru Disneyland travel. I LOVE staying at Best Westerns as they have always had this clean, awesome smell to them. . .well, I was disappointed on this one. The room (suite) was somewhat musty smelling.
The rooms are of ok size (we had 5 adults). . .there is a seperate bedroom in the suite that my husband and I stayed in. The dresser stands in front of the closet so you had to work your way around the dresser to hang clothes.
The breakfast. . .it was boring. There were hard boiled eggs, bisc/gravy, donuts, toast, orange/apple juice and coffee/tea and some fruit. It was the SAME everyday. A little hard to swallow so we went out every other day. It was also not diabetic friendly. . .everything was carbs making things difficult to control blood sugars.
The main problem we had was we had to constantly ask for bathroom tissue and towels. . .the maid would leave 4 bath towels and one washcloth. . .now we're a family that shares but the line has to be drawn somewhere. . .when we got back to the room in the evening, I would every night have to go to the front desk and ask for toilet paper and towels. . .the guy that was the desk clerk at night wasn't the friendliest one around. . .one night he saw me coming, looked up and without me saying anything said. . .I'll send maintainence with towels/tissue. I wondered why if they knew this was going on why didn't they let the maid know what to take care of.
Those who mention the ART are totally correct. It is a waste of money. One would do better with buying a month pass for the city bus as it ran every 12 minutes (instead of 30-40). If the park closes at 8:00 p.m., the last ART bus runs at 8:30 p.m. We were at the stop at 8:32 p.m. (according to my cell phone) and we were denied boarding. I was NOT happy about that one. We took the city bus back to the motel and it worked out much better.
Overall, the stay was ok. . .I wouldn't stay at the Raffles again. . .would choose to stay across the street or even a Disney hotel.
