“4 nights of comfortable, convenient stay”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

we are a family of 4 with kids of 7 and 5 y.o. we booked the suite which accommodates up to 6 pax using the Friends and Family rate. the only reason i booked Hotel Indigo is because it was fairly new (newly renovated) and it says that its a few minutes walk from Disney Main Gate. i was quite hesitant since it only shows 3-star class rating and since this was a long-planned vacation, i wanted it to be extra special and even considered booking the Disney Resort hotels. good things i did not coz we saved a lot by booking this hotel

The room was on the second floor. it was big and spacious and clean. modern decorations and the location was around 15 minutes walk from Disney Main gate. we walked several times, we also tried taking a cab once during park closing hours, it took us quite some time to find a cab though. we also tried taking a shuttle which took even longer because it went around the whole complex. we also tried taking our car and parking it, the parking area is already quite a walk from the park, thus, the best way is really to just walk from the hotel.

this hotel is right next to the Garden Walk which had lots of restaurants. it was also beside a Cheesecake Factory restaurant. there is also several 7-11 outlets across the street and since my daughter is very particular with taking Asian food, there was this chinese restaurant beside the hotel that we usually order and bring into the park.

i highly recommend this hotel. i would give it 5 stars if only it was a bit closer to the Main Gate. i don't mind walking from the hotel to the resort, but to walk from the resort back to the hotel when the kids are tired and sleepy was quite an ordeal.

We were very happy with our two stays at Indigo. Both times our twin room was spacious, modern, tastefully decorated and clean. The bathroom is wonderfull. The beds very comfortable. The first time we got a room on the second floor with view of the Disney fireworks. This was much nicer than the room we got later on the first floor. All staff very friendly, especially breakfast waitress. Price is good value. We were four (2 adults and 2 children) in our twin room. (But got only 2 breakfast vouchers.) Location is also very good. A couple of blocks walk to the theme parks, or a 7-8 USD taxi ride.

I booked this hotel a week in advance online. We stayed in a double queen room. The room and bathroom were spotless. I love that the rooms have hardwood floors because I have allergies and carpet floors make them worse. The staff was courteous and attentive to our needs. It takes about 10-15 minutes walking to get to Disneyland. It is also situated around restaurants, a 7-11 and just across the street a CVS and a Walgreens are under construction. I will definitely recommend this hotel.

We selected Hotel Indigo based on the Tripadvisor ratings and were really pleased with our stay. First of all the location is really excellent, only a ten minute walk to the Disneyland parks and short two minute stroll to a variety of family friendly restaurants. Our children were almost teenagers so happy with the walk but could be a stretch for children around the age of 5-7. Importantly, there are two convenience stores on the way to the parks where you can stock up with supplies of food and drinks for the day at reasonable prices. The room was very nicely appointed and large enough to hold two double beds and a fold out sofa bed, perfect for a family of four. The bathroom was great and the children loved the face towels fashioned in to an elephant, what a sweet touch! There was a nice restaurant beside the lobby with helpful service to get us quickly out the door to the park for the day. Actually all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, which topped off the fantastic Disney experience. There is a small swimming pool which would be ideal to cool off after a hot day visiting the attractions. There are laundry facilities available for guest use but we didn't use these. Apparently you also get a good view of the fireworks from the rear facing rooms of the hotel. Ask to be away from the ice machine (which is in the hallway) if you are a light sleeper but this is a very minor point. Overalll, a highly recommended and value for money family option for a Disneyland visit.

Room Tip: Just a couple of tips. The ice machine is in the hallway and noisy so if you're a light sleeper...

I recently stated several days at the Indigo Maingate. The staff of the hotel was extremely friendly and eager to please. They always seemed ready to help and wanted to be sure that guests had a pleasant experience. The room was clean and seemed fairly modern and I believe they recently renovated. (I stayed previously when it was still under construction). The beds were nice and the rooms of good size. Very modern bathroom. However, I was a little unnerved that the lock on the door of my room seemed to have issues that the staff could not seem to fix. My room was a ways from the front desk and after a long day at Disney schlepping back to the front desk because the door would not open was a little annoying. The staff wanted to help - giving me new keys, walking back with me to room to try them but, then the next time I went back to the room - same issue. This unfortunately continued for my entire stay sometimes taking minutes standing at the door of the room trying to get in. However, that was my only issue with the hotel. Free parking and free internet are a HUGE plus for this hotel as well. Most others in the Disneyland area charge you extra for parking and some for wifi. The hotel is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk to the front gate of Disneyland.

Checked into this hotel in Anaheim for 3 nights on a long family holiday. We were going to Disneyland for 3 days and this hotel came up as one of the best ranked in the area. For 2 adults and 2 kids it worked well even though the room only came with 2 queen beds, the staff folded out a couch into a third bed which gave both kids a bed to themselves. Location was good as it was only a 15 minute walk to Disneyland and 5 minutes away from some good restaurants at the Anaheim Gardenwalk. Breakfast is not included but there is a small bar downstairs which sells meals. Overall it was a great place to base ourselves during our Disneyland adventure and it would beat all of the expensive Disney hotels on value for money!

I had to go to Anaheim for a conference, but all the hotels in the conference center were booked, so I ended up at the Hotel Indigo. I'm so glad I did! I requested a room on an upper floor (ended up on the 3rd) on the side that faced the Disney Fireworks, and that's exactly what we received. We had a beautiful view of the fireworks every night, but that's not the only reason this hotel is awesome.

To begin with, I've never stayed at a cleaner hotel. The floors are wood (or maybe laminate), and every day the cleaning staff mopped the floors and went inside the shower to clean it. I am a HUGE germaphobe, but I felt very comfortable here. Additionally, the beds were super comfortable, and my mom, who has a bad neck, slept well every night. The hotel isn't a mega-hotel, and it has a boutique-like feel with welcoming staff.

We didn't have a car so location was important, and the hotel was only about a 5 minute walk to the convention center, maybe 10 minutes to Disneyland, and not even 2 minutes to the Garden Walk. The staff also arranged for us to take a Starline tour to the San Diego Zoo.

I honestly can't say enough good things about this hotel's cleanliness and service. Definitely the place to stay in Anaheim.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors that faces the Disneyland fireworks.
