I had a good experience here. The Red Lion Anaheim was a relatively inexpensive choice for a place to stay close to Disneyland for my family Christmas trip. I booked two rooms under the special "Roarin' California" (or something like that) deal for $99/night, which included the usually $14/night parking and the breakfast buffet. It was a much better deal than any other place nearby, with pretty good ratings too.
My husband and I arrived the night before the rest of the family did and checked in with ease after the 3 pm check in time. Our room had a view of the roof of the building next to us (con) but also the Tower of Terror and nightly fireworks (big pro!). The room itself was clean and well-stocked, nothing out of the ordinary.
Our shower had a lone curly, black hair on the bottom of the tub - gross. I was willing to overlook that one. One of our towels smelled like Indian food... hm. The laminated TV guide menu was sticky... I'll just memorize which channel A&E is on, I guess. The pillows are itty bitty and very firm, while the mattress was springy and slightly uncomfortable - I woke up with a crick in the neck the next morning. To be fair, I have a very luxurious mattress at home that's hard to match ;)
The proximity to Disneyland was great, but we drove anyway :) The breakfast buffet was more abundant than I'm used to at a hotel. We didn't experience the housekeeping because I kept the "privacy please" tag in the door even when we left the room - I didn't want to experience a missing iPhone or wallet like another patron mentioned in his review!
Overall the deal was great and if we get another chance to stay at that rate, we will.
