I had booked this hotel *before* discovering the wonders of how helpful this website really is. I thought to be fair I'd write my own review on the place, especially for those of you who are light sleepers. I am one of you!
First of all, the hotel surpassed my expectations. Hotel staff was all very friendly, even the maids and security. The room was clean, the air conditioning was great (and blocked out a lot of the interstate noise), our bed was a large kingsize in the cheapest room available! The pool and hot tub is especially relaxing after a long day walking the theme parks all day. Large pool, good wading pool for younger children. The location is great for Disneyland, the walk is really not that bad even after being on your feet all day. It probably took us about 6 minutes to get there. Free internet access in the lobby was good too.
My only concern coming there was the noise on the freeway. We were in Building One which is close to the freeway, on the top floor (7th), and facing the freeway. The rooms are *very* soundproofed but we still heard the freeway all night. However, with the air conditioning on all night, it really blocked out the sound well. One word of caution before booking a room- if you are a light sleeper make sure you are not close to the freeway. I had to do use the Internet in the lobby one morning and I overheard a couple still in their pajamas waiting to get moved into a new room. They did not get any sleep all night and the hotel was completely booked. Before paying for a trip to Disneyland, make sure you can sleep at night.
Otherwise, this hotel is an excellent stay for the price. You won't find a better hotel that close to Disneyland for the price.
