After reading many reviews of this hotel, and seeing the responses of the manager, Kimberly, who obviously cares about her customers; it was apparent that this was the hotel for us to choose for our romantic getaway. A great place to stay, with comfort and relaxation in mind, small luxurious touches, and yet non-pretentious. We were greeted at the front desk right away with a "Happy anniversary!", which tells me that the front desk reads the "notes" left in the reservation form. We were assigned our room, and given easy directions on how to get there, access the internet, and the breakfast area. When we entered our room, it was obvious that we had been upgraded from the 1 bedroom suite that we reserved to the Penthouse Suite/ Bi-Level loft. That was an amazing surprise! I actually had to call the front desk to ensure there wasn't a mistake! While talking to the front desk, I also asked about the anniversary "dessert surprise" we were told we would have waiting for us. I was told, they were "Working on it". About 30 minutes later, a staff member arrived with a card and a black plastic bag in hand. The card was a hand made computer printed card personalized and everything! The plastic bag had us laughing though! -* One thing to note.. I was told upon reserving the room, and asking about anything special they do for anniversaries that, "We usually have a piece of cake or chocolate covered strawberries waiting"... Well, the black plastic bag was a surprise indeed.. 2 cans of beer, 2 mini bottles of wine, and 2 candy bars from the nearest liquor store. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. BUT.. it totally fit our personality of laid back and easy going, so it was cool. The room was comfy, quiet, and a great way to get away from the crazyness of Disneyland. The beds were very comfortable! Great for romance! The bathrooms and showers/tubs seem to be a little small, and so we actually had to take separate showers on our anniversary, but the nice thing is that the water temperature and pressure was perfect, even for 2 showers going at the same time! The breakfast buffet was good, and had a decent variety, but pay attention to what you are eating. My husband grabbed some bacon and it was in big chunks. it appears they take big handfuls and deep fry it. Great flavor and crispness, UNTIL you get to the middle.. he had several pieces that were still RAW! I think the kitchen staff needs to be very careful with the cooking times and temps of the food. I had the eggs, and because they are cooked in a very deep pan, I wasn't sure about their done-ness.. so I made sure I scooped my eggs carefully. We took our breakfast back to our room, so to enjoy our food without the chaos that can be breakfast buffets, and it was soo nice to have all we needed in our kitchenette ready for us. Plates, cups, utensils, napkins, all right there ready to use! Overall, we had a great experience here, and most definitely will stay again. For the price paid, you get so much more than just a standard "hotel room".
