3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We stayed in the King suite. We wanted to have a seperate seating room and this was the available choice. The bed had a pillow soft top but the mattress did not have much support. I slept on the floor one evening to relieve my aching back. Decor felt outdated and the room was showing signs of wear and tear. The room was spacious and clean. We had two adults and one toddler with us. We had three friends over one night for pizza and there was plenty of room. We had a wonderful view of the fireworks and the walking distance to Disneyland was great. The freeway noise is unavoidable.

We have stayed here many times and you can not beat family rooms for the price. Clean and 5 minute walk from front gates. Best value, clean, comfy beds! Book early for family rooms- they book out quick!

This hotel was just fine for what it is for and where it is. I thought the place might be a bit worn from all the use it gets but it was relatively decent. It is a short walk to Disneyland and there are a couple of restaurants close by. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a little store that has food items and souvenirs. The rooms were fine but don't expect plush. The maids did an okay job until the last couple of days. One of the kids dropped a donut under the bed and the maid left it there as well as a pixie stick that spilled. The rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable enough. The kids loved the water play area and the pool. Some of the rooms were being done whle we were staying there and looked pretty nice. Millies restaurant was pretty good and the prices were good. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I think any of the rooms would be fine. The hotel is right next to the freeway but we never heard th...
