A nice place to stay with children. There is a very good pool play area that keeps kids happy when they are taking a break from the Mouse house. Yadda Yadda Yadda Yadda Yadda Yadda

Room Tip: We had a large family gathering and we used six rooms and they were all very good.

The hotel was clean. The bathroom door would not close. That's not entirely true - it would close and make a loud, horrible "clunk" as the door frame pulled away from the wall so that the door could close. The staff was friendly and kind: checked us in quickly (even a bit early) and made a Security report promptly when we returned from Disneyland to find that there had been an attempt to break into our car (which was empty and will cost over $1,000 to repair). I was told that another car was actually broken into. Not sure what the parking situation is like at the Disney Resort hotels but a stay there is likely cheaper when you factor in the time and money spent to repair a vandalized car from an over night with a lower initial price tag.
