The Knotts Berry Farm resort hotel has the advantage of being very close to the park. It is an easy walk, and simplifies parking. It is also close to a number of other stores and restaurants if you need anything. I wouldn't consider it a luxury resort hotel, it's a pretty average hotel, basic furniture, showing wear and tear, and with it's share of minor problems. Overall it was a good stay, and suited our needs.
We stayed in a two queen room on the 8th floor, under the 9th floor ballrooms, facing the pool. We had no problems with noise from the pool, but we could hear the music from the ballroom (the event in the ballroom was the reason we were there, so we understood and didn't have a problem with it, just noticed when we ran downstairs to get something). Our reservation did not include any meals. There were 3 elevators, and we never had to wait long to get one. We were also able to check in early, which was fabulous!
As for the minor problems, there were not nearly enough outlets, especially by the bed for charging phones. I did find an outlet behind the curtain, only to find out later that it didn't work. In the middle of my shower the water became burning hot, regardless of where the temp was set at, I had to get out and wait for it to cool back down. We also had light switches that didn't appear to do anything, or were supposed to turn on something that was broken. The ice machine on the 8th floor also didn't work, but the 7th floor did.
We enjoyed running into Snoopy in the evening down in the lobby. Snoopy also went to the hotel restaurant and went around to each table, which was fun. I was surprised to see very little in the hotel about the park. While you are supposed to be able to get discount park tickets at the front desk, it wasn't mentioned, or advertised. The rooms did have framed pictures of the roller coasters, but otherwise it seemed the hotel was trying to distance itself from the park.
