“Excellent place to stay whilst visiting Disney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stayed in a two bed rm for our visit to disneyland and LA. the management of this hotel can not help you anymore! They go out of there way to assist any way they can. The hotel is clean in good repair, plus you can save a fortune by not staying across the road from disneyland but is only a short trip by a bus (two blocks) which runs every twenty minutes and picks up and drops of out the front of the hotel.

We stayed here Jan 1 - Jan 5 in room 528. It was perfect for our family of 4. The breakfast downstairs was always hot and ready to go. The pool and hot tub was just what we needed after a long day of Disney. The greatest surprise of all was the wonderful housekeeping staff. Everyday our room was taken care of so well. They even made up the children's beds with their stuffed animals. We really felt cared for by them. Thank you for helping our vacation be even better!

When traveling with a family value is important. Our hot daily breakfast buffet offers a variety of food like scramble eggs, sausage, fresh fruit and hot oatmeal. The most popular item on the breakfast buffet is our waffle station were you can create your own waffle and top it off with some whip cream or strawberries. Thank you for noticing the efforts of our wonderful cleaning staff we are all committed to making the experience of every guest a memorable one. Can’t wait to have your family come back! Hope to see you soon.

This is a good, clean hotel, and it is well-suited for families. The common areas and the rooms are very clean, and everything is well-maintained. The one bedroom suites have a decent-sized living room, but the bedrooms are quite small. The beds are adequate but a bit hard, the towels plentiful but a bit rough. The bathrooms, though clean, are in need of remodeling. The grout and surfaces are showing their age, and there was no fan in the bathroom. The fan on the heater/ac, however, was quite loud, and the heater blew cool air for a long time before heating up

Housekeeping and the front desk were very good.

Though the hotel was said to be sold out, there was never trouble getting an elevator nor too big a crowd at breakfast. The food at the breakfast is varied and abundant, but the quality mediocre--think dorm food. Still, it is sufficient and an important amenity.

Not only is the Disneyland shuttle (ART--but tickets online ahead of time for multiple-day passes) stop right our front, there are several restaurants, a Target, a convenience store, and several other stores in short walking distance. It is just over a mile to the Disney parks.

All things considered, it is a very good choice for a stay.

Residence Inn I always feel its home away from home. This hotel is really awesome, its right on ART line, so going to Disney is soooo much easy. They have awesome breakfast, which doesnt repeat for a week, plus light dinner Mon-Thus. The rooms are clean, kitchen has everything if you want to cook, and grocery stores not far away. I believe there is one secret, if you do get up early, you can watch beautiful sunrise, what an awesome experience is that. The reception people were awesome, I got both early checkin as well as late checkout. They even stored our baggage as our flight was late in the night. Not sure when we will get back to Disney again, but if we do, you bet, will definitely stay here only. Keep up the good standard.

Sergio at the front desk was awesome. A real example of "customer service". I arrived around 10 p.m. with a group of teenagers for a Disney trip. He understood my needs and even gave me a tour of the available rooms. Upon selecting one of the suites with twin beds, Sergio was the man and upgraded to the queen beds. Are you kidding? Who does this anymore? On top of that, he hooked me up by not charging me the parking fee. I guess he knows how it can be with excited teenagers. In addition to the great room, the evening social and the buffet breakfast was great! Overall a great experience with this hotel and the staff. Definitely on the return list.

For families looking for a convenient, clean, spacious and reasonably priced hotel close to Disneyland, I would highly recommend the Residence Inn Anaheim Resort Area. We booked through Disney and had our Disneyland tickets included in the package, which made the stay extraordinarily good value! The kids had a room with bunk beds (always a winner), the adults had a room with a king and there was a separate lounge/kitchen and two bathrooms. Breakfast was complimentary, but don't expect 5 star food - it was just ok for us as a family looking for healthier options. We used the ART to get to Disneyland and the stop is just outside the hotel ... great for the journey home after a huge day.
