“Presidential Suite For Knott's Scary Farm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

This review is for the presidential suite which we stayed at for Knott's Scary Farm last saturday. The suite itself is football-field large, and fantastic. You could easily house two couples in this suite if you are planning for a group trip to Knotts. We have stayed at rooms half this size that cost more, and this one was a great value (less than $300). It was clean, the bed was soft, both tv's were perfect, the 5th floor view is great with no nosy neighbors outside, or car traffic, so you can throw all of the curtains open, and watch the stars. Multiple couches (one with a pullout bed), and tables/chairs with a champagne server ice bucket and several glasses. The bedroom door locks to keep the kids out. Huge tub (no jacuzzi jets), large shower, and seperate bathrooms. Another cool thing is it has two doors that exit to the hallway, so if someone is asleep in the main room, you can exit to the hallway without going through the living room. The lobby is very nice, and the staff were friendly for the most part except one occasion with the shuttle driver on the way back from Knott's. I stepped in from the outside noise, and couldn't hear what he said, so when I said "what"? he grumpily yelled "WHAT IS YOUR ROOM!?" It was so odd I had to laugh it off, and my daughter was mimicking it on the way back to the hotel. Not a night person I guess. He drove a large bus way too fast on the way back. There are some things that may bother you about the hotel. The carpets in the main hallway to the rooms had some stains, and kinda smelled weird. There was some cracked moulding on the base boards in the hallway. There was a lot of scratched up wallpaper in the hallways. We got back to our room just past midnight to find a large party going on just up the hallway from our presidential suite. It was very noisy, and crowded coming through that area. You enter another hallway through a door at that point, and travel around 25 feet to the suite door. Fortunately the party was about to end. The guests across the hall kept slamming that door to the hallway entrance for at least another two hours, so I'll say this, if you are looking for a romantic suite, this will not be the one for you. If you are looking for a place to have a good time, and party this is the place for you. The halls could use some renovation, but the room itself was great.

On behalf of our entire team, we appreciate your detailed review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the Presidential Suite and it provided enough space and amenities to suit your needs. You may not have been aware, but we've just finalized our room renovations at the hotel. Next up (as you may have guessed based on your comments) hallways and public areas. Once complete, they are sure to address the concerns noted. In terms of service, we have passed along your comments regarding the shuttle service to our Guest Services team to address as your experience was not at all up to our high standards. Thank you for sharing your experience, we've found it very very helpful.

Staff great, free parking is a plus, most importantly comfortable beds and clean room - great sleep! Will definitely return if in area.
Plenty of eateries within walking distance, didn't try hotel restaurant other than breakfast which was lovely.
One female member of bar staff was more interested in chatting on her phone in the back than serving which irritated the guests, but other than that staff very nice and obliging.
Disneyland free shuttle great.

I stayed at Holiday Inn Buena Park on my visit to California with my mother last May. the hotel has warm ambience, humble but classic decorations.
The room is quite spacious and clean, I loved the bed size as well. The bed sheets were also very clean, they had several sizes of pillows with generous amount of 4 pillows on each bed. My sleep was very comfortable during my stay there. the bathroom is okay, quite plain, but the amenities are complete.

The one I should say very impressing from this hotel, is the concierge desk service, which helped us with shuttle, recommend places to visit, and answer any questions we had. We were assisted by a man (too bad I cannot remember his name) who was very helpful and friendly. He showed his sincerity in helping and asnwering our questions. He recommended which places to go based on our interests, and he tried his best to make our trip enjoyable. He spoke quite slow, perhaps because of age factor, but the most memorable thing me and my mom will always engrave in our heart about Holiday Inn Buena Park is his friendliness.

We will surely stay in this hotel again if we visit California.

This was a wonderful hotel.
The price was very reasonable, but it felt like an upscale hotel.
The lobby was very luxurious.
The staff were very attentive. Bernice at the desk went above and beyond!
She was so nice.
There was plenty of hot water.
I stayed in the back building ... very private and quiet.
I would stay here again.

Traveling along the west coast, the holiday inn was all right. We changed rooms as we do like to have a balcony or a patio. For $20,= extra a night we got a nice room on the ground floor overlooking the very nice pool. Great patio to sit outside after a long day in a park, while the kids were hanging out in the pool. Nice and friendly service. All kinds of restaurants in walking distance of the hotel. We especially liked the Japanees/Chinees/Korean "Aria" restaurant just around the corner on the right if you leave the hotel. Our kids preferred Wendy across the street.

In the hotel the kids menu is for FREE and really good!

Room Tip: Book a room with a patio if you like to go outside.

The holiday inn at buena park is located about 25 Miles from L.A. City which sometimes is a petty because of all the trafic jams around rush hours. but apart from That, it is a great hotel! We accidentally booked a two single bed room and the front desk man suggested a free upgrade to a king bed room. The room was very clean and all services were available. The hotel also has a nice and clean swimming pool and jacuzi which is great to relax after a long day of visiting the city. Excellent value for money, i wod recommend this to anyone

I know that people generally only post hotel experiencies for either very good or very bad hotels, but i would recommend the Hol Inn Buena Park for anybody who wants a nice hotel without paying silly prices. Our room was freshly refurbished with new tv, bed carpet, vinyls and fridge. We had a pool facing room, which was large and very quiet during the night. Plenty of parking and when we used the pool it was generally very quiet. Highly recomended.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the pool as they are far from the freeway.
