“Good location, friendly staff”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed here Feb 1 - 8th. No complaints. Good view of the fireworks if on the pool side of building, fri,sat, sun only during winter months. It's an easy 10 min walk straight down Harbor to Disney maingates. I-hop right next door and a food strip mall 1/4 block away with something for everyone. Wi-fi worked, room was clean, beds comfy. Never ate there, lots of choices on the walk to and from disneyland. Enjoyed our stay, would recommend for everyone, reasonable, even tried the pool a couple of times, heated.

Room Tip: eastside would get better fireworks view

Well this was a great Valentine's Day stay at Red Lion Hotel Anaheim for my wife and I. We frequent the Disneyland Resort Parks so our choice of hotels are many. We chose the Red Lion Hotel this time because of the closeness to the park itself.

The hotel is very well kept up to date in technology, cleanliness, staff customer service and amenities. My wife and I had a great celebration this stay.

Chris Allanigue the manager has his team and staff on point. Great job Chris! Our view was awesome...we had the best room in the hotel. We could see the entire Disney Park from our room. The room itself was well kept, very contemporary and fresh. We are definitely going to stay here again. We've already started planning our trip again to the Disney resort with our grandson and plan to stay here. This hotel has the family client covered, the corporate client covered and the honeymooners covered...(which we are all three and expect none the less from a hotel)

Plan your stay here soon...

Room Tip: The higher floor rooms are more desirable

Staff was friendly, location was right in the heart of Downtown Anaheim. Its walking distance from the convention center and a little further from Downtown Disney and Disneyland parks. The check in took a little bit because there was an event going, but the room was clean. The only downside is that you have to pay each night for parking about $12, which is a lot!

I read some bad reviews online so I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. The room was clean and modern. We paid $90 a night, and had a room view of the Disneyland fireworks show.

***TIP/ BEST PART:A bus/shuttle stops in front of the hotel and charges adults $5, but we actually saved that money, by walking right next door into the Disneyland parking lot, and taking one of their shuttles to the front entrance. The woody parking lot is literally around the corner from the hotel!

There is also an IHOP right next door to the hotel (seriously 10 feet away from lobby) so if you want to save money you can eat there. Although we had the breakfast included and it was free! The breakfast is buffet and they serve, eggs, potatoes, fruit, cereal, toast, pancakes, sausage, bacon, juice, and coffee. Well worth the price I paid.

I will definitely be using this hotel for all my future disney trips :)

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly to get a better offer. I did.

Came for a family vacation at Disneyland. Many properties in the area, so difficult to make a relative comparison with others. Room was clean and quiet, beds comfortable, and staff was friendly. Room had microwave, fridge and coffee maker so you can do snacks or $10 breakfast buffet was fine since kids then ate free. Bar available in the evenings. Some chain restaurants a block away on cross street. Small fitness center, but most people are getting their exercise in the park. Business Center had PCs and a printer, and never any waiting time. A 10-15 minute walk to the D-land gates. Convention Center about 2 blocks away. Overall a good value for the price.

Room Tip: Higher floors on North side will allow view of Disney fireworks.

I went on a trip for my birthday to Disneyland last week and we booked with Red Lion. We didn't get in until after midnight and we were all exhausted but check in took about 5 minutes it was a relief. We got to our room and it was very nice. It was clean and had plenty of towels!! We didn't hear any of our "neighbors" at all. A big plus was the fact that we could walk to Disneyland from the hotel it was about 3 street lights away! The only down side is you have to pay for parking but i understand why they do that being so close to the parks, they don't want people not staying at the hotel to take up all the parking from the actual guests. The room had a fancy coffee maker, a microwave, a safe and a flat screen TV. I felt comfortable leaving my personal belongings in the room, and it was cleaned spotless everyday while we were at the park. I would recomend this hotel to anyone going to Disneyland that wants an affordable place close to the parks!!
