Just returned from a fun trip to Disneyland, but the stay at Peacock Suites Resort was just okay. We had purchased a week's stay via an online auction and the price was a steal. Had read the mixed reviews before going so didn't have high expectations (but let's face it, most of the hotels around Disneyland are fairly basic which is okay since you spend most of your time at the park anyway).

The best things about the Peacock were: continental breakfast (yes, it was standard fare, but enough to fill our stomachs and get us going in the morning), clean rooms, the air conditioning worked (though was a bit loud), the hotel was right around the corner from a Hertz location which made picking up & dropping off a car rental quite easy for a day away from Disney. A couple nice touches were a snack delivered one day to our rooms when staying for the week, also at times there were cookies available in the lobby.

The biggest downside to the Peacock is the location, assuming you are going to Disneyland most days. The shuttle stop is located right outside the hotel, but with two small children who took naps during the afternoon so they could stay up late, the 15-20 minutes it took each way (the wait plus 5 minute shuttle), took a big chunk out of our day just travling back & forth twice a day.
Other downsides: parking was terrible, not enough of it and cramped spaces. Extra fee for (wireless) internet service. Walls seemed a bit thin.

When checking into the room, we did get hit up for a timeshare presentation, but we politely said no, and weren't bothered about it again.

Overall, the Peacock was a clean, basic room. If I were going to Disneyland again, I would much prefer to stay in a hotel right across the street which we've done on previous Disney trips. Since we like to get away from the park for an hour or two in the afternoon, the convenience can't be beat.

We just stayed there for four nights. It wasn't a Marriott that's for sure, but it wasn't a Motel 6 either. It was clean, nice bed, decent shower, good air conditioning. The maids cleaned really well and restocked coffee and utensils as needed. The layout of the room was odd, but it worked. We liked the glass doors separating both rooms so we could watch the kids while we enjoyed some quite time ourselves. The staff was nice. Valet parking was a way to get some extra bucks, but I don't blame them. The sound proofing between floors needs to be improved, and the hotel is remodelling so maybe they are addressing this. It was a little hard to find, since there wasn't a street sign, but the building has a sign if you look up. Overall, it was a nice place to sleep, but I wouldn't hang out there long. For the price it was a decent room. Don't even think of walking to Disney- drive or take the shuttle. AAA Disney tickets include free parking- best deal in town.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Peacock Suites. From the moment we arrived, we could tell the brochures we had received and the online photos completely over-rated this place!

Parking - The worst ever. They are 2 parking garage levels each with about 20 parking spaces. The problem is they reserve one of the levels for "valet" parking. Also, any overflow parking outside of the garage near the lobby is coned off and marked "valet" also. They charge you $8.00 a day to valet park. There is honestly no reason for this property to have valet parking at all considering how small it is. The last night we were there, we were unable to find a parking spot in the free garage. I literally handed my keys over to the valet, he drove my car 20 feet and parked it for me to the tune of $8.00.

Pool area - 2 nice jacuzzis. The pool is very, very small. Small sun deck located on 4th floor.

Room - We had a 1 bedroom suite with 2 queen beds. It was nice to have a seperate sitting area so the kids could have their own space and own TV. The room has a refrigerator, toaster, can opener & safe. There is a also a VCR. The layout of the room was a little strange. The vanity/sink area is right as you enter the room. If anyone walks out the door as you are trying to get ready, anyone in the hallway can see you standing there. The room was OK. Nothing great. We had to deal with the people above us who had kids that were jumping up & down so loudly we thought they were going to crash through the ceiling.

Free breakfast - Definitely nothing to write home about. Your standard muffins, cold cereal, juice & coffee.

Location - Not good. It says 2 blocks from Disneyland. Plan on walking a long, long way. These are city blocks, folks! There is a seedy night club across the street. I had read a previous review about a noisy laundry facility located next door. The property sits directly next to this place and I can see why noise would be an issue. Thankfully we stayed on a weekend so they were closed.

Reservations - Called the property twice and each time was told someone would have to call me back. The first time I did not get a call back, the second time someone finally did call back.

Check-in: Very quick and efficient. Because this is a timeshare property, they ask you to speak to the concierge who will validate your parking for you. The concierge give you a package of information (maps, brochures, etc.) for the area and also give you times and location for their timeshare presentation. She was very friendly & helpful (provided maps to Hollywood for us)and not pushy at all. You do not have to attend the presentation.

You can find something better in the Disney area that is much closer and much cheaper! The going rate for our room was $149.00 per night and it is definitely not worth it. If this is what Shell Vacation Club has to offer, I would never consider purchasing a timeshare with them.

We stayed at the Peacock in early August, and used the hotel as a launching point for our daily trips to Disneyland. This is what the majority of the other folks at the Peacock are doing as well.

The hotel is close to I-5 and relatively close to Disneyland. A bit too far if you have young kids to walk. Might be do able in the morning when everybody is fresh and excited, but too far to walk back after spending a long day walking around Disneyland.

For $3 a day pp you can purchase a shuttle pass from the front desk. The Peacock is the third stop on the route to Disneyland, so if alot of folks have gotten on at the first two stops, the shuttle can get really full, especially at peak times, i.e. after breakfast. If you are lugging a stroller, you will be squished! The ride is only about 5 minutes to the park.

Free parking is very limited at the Peacock. Not enough to handle a sold out crowd. It's $8 a day to valet. Overflow parking is at a hotel nearby on a space avaialble basis. Not sure what happens when that fills up...

We had a suite (#232), which was rather small. Carpet was stained, toaster broken and bathroom sink cracked (leaked on your feet!). It was nice to have the refrigerator and microwave.
As we tend not to be overly picky folks, we could live with those minor distractions.

The major distraction was the water line that fed the above rooms. The water line ran through the wall right next to the bed. Everytime someone ran a bath/shower in the room above us, the valve in the wall would open and the noise was extremely loud. It was very difficult to get a good nights sleep. The noise blocked out everything else, road noise, our TV, normal converssation, etc. This would not be a big deal if the folks above us did not use the shower late at night, but if they do (as happend to us) it's not so easy to get to sleep. If you have younger kids and do not stay until the park closes at 11pm, this may be a factor if the folks above you do - and want to shower when they return.

I spoke with the front desk about this issue, but they were sold out, so no room changes.

As for the front desk, the girls (especially Yvette) were extremely nice and friendly. They went out of their way to help us with little requests. The service they gave was indicative of a much nicer hotel.

Pool was small. Continental breakfast was a non event. Standard gas station type danish and cereal served.

If we had to do it again, with small kids, I really think we would try to find a deal to stay on the Disneyland property. This saves the hassle of the midday shuttle run back to an off-site hotel for mid day naps and to escape the heat.

If we were staying off property, we would not return to the Peacock. It just wasn't that nice of a place to stay, even with the great service from the girls at the front desk.

Yes it's true that we were there to visit Disneyland, but that does not mean we can't expect a comfortable hotel room/suite.

Since you have to take the shuttle bus anyways, the location of the hotel is not a big deal. Good luck!

We just returned from a weeks stay at PeacocK Suites. We have only wonderful things to say about this resort. We are RCI members and this was an exchange for us. We've been in RCI for 20 years and this resort is every bit as nice as most of the resorts we've traded into. We had a three bedroom suite and a two bedroom suite for our extended family. The rooms were very spacious and each had a area with a microwave, toaster, can opener, small frig. and a safe. Each unit had a small living room with large TV, a couch and table and chairs. The beds were all either king or queen size and each unit had two full bathrooms. In the three bedroom there were slide glass doors to seperate the sleeping areas. The beds were made for you everyday and you received clean tiles. Upon arrival we received a welcoming basket and fluffy white robes. Two of the nights we received mints on our pillows. There is a really nice gift shop that is very resonablely priced and also has supplies of things you might have forgotten. Every morning they serve a continental breakfast with juices, coffee, toast, donuts, danish, muffins, and hard boiled eggs. We felt that was a nice touch. Some hotel have continental breakfast but this the first timeshare we have ever receive free breakfast. The location is fantastic. We were minutes from Disneyland & Knottsberry Farm. We dove one day about an hour to Legoland. It's the only Legoland in the United States. Also close by is Universal Studios and many other attratctions. The staff at the resort couldn't have been more helpfull or freindly. The printed our boarding pass for our plane trip home for us and even mailed our postcards using their postage meter for us. They arranged for a limo to pick us up and take us to an Italian restruant free of charge. They really made our vacation extra special. I don't know when we will go back to CA but if we are in the area we will deffinally stay at Peacock Suites Resort again!!!!

Rooms were large, and beds were comfortable. Carpets and furniture were old and stained. Housekeeping staff did a good job. Everything was just OK. The one thing that I did not like was lack of security. All of the rooms were acessible by hallways, which were in turn acessible by anyone. One end of the building by the office required room cards to enter, but the other end was open. It looked like the start of a good idea they never finished.

We had a family of 6 and were very impressed with our room and stay. It was better than we expected.We had 2 queen beds, with a second separate room with a sofa bed, 2 tvs. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. We heard no noise from other hotel guests as other reviews complained. We took the shuttle from the hotel everyday to Disneyland, very smooth no hassle. Only thing I can suggest is the complementary breakfast could have a few more options, and the front desk as friendly as they were seemed short staffed.We had an excellant time and plan to definatley stay again.
