“The perfect hotel for large families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We recently stayed here for 6 nights and we are a family with four kids. This was a great place for us. We had a suite that had one king bed, two queens, a sofabed and two bathrooms. Having two bathrooms is essential for us or we wouldn't leave the hotel until late morning. The room was spacious and very clean and includes a full kitchen. While we found our room on the fourth floor a tad noisy, it wasn't anything we couldn't handle.

Another plus to this hotel is the free hot breakfast every morning. This is much more than a continental breakfast and has foods such as scrambled eggs, sausage, make your own waffles (seriously, these are the best waffles we've tasted) and a variety of cold cereals, fruits and oatmeal. The one thing that eeked us out a bit was the communal bowl of yogurt. Individual yogurts would be much better. On some evenings, there was a snack (sloppy joes, turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, etc) which was great. The kids loved the caramel apples!

This property has shuttle service (for a fee) to Disneyland which we ended up buying a pass to use. The shuttle drivers were friendly and on time.

All in all, we will stay here again. This was our third time staying at this Residence Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor quiet room, one that doesnt face Harbor Blvd.

I definitely agree with you we are great for families. Our spacious two bed room two bathroom suite is the best value in Anaheim. The additional space enhances your trip by giving you room to relax after a long day. Our daily breakfast buffet is an added value especially when you are traveling with a family. Can’t wait to have your family come back hope to see you soon!

My 3 year old keeps asking when we are going back to the hotel with the bunk beds and for a Mickey TV Waffle breakfast :)

We will definitely return to Disneyland - and definitely to this specific hotel! We have previously stayed at other Marriott hotels when we are in the area - but this one blows the others away! The front desk staff isn't just nice - they went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable - their recommendations were non-rehearsed and helpful. (Been Platinum Marriott for years, I know the difference!) We arrived after a 7 hour car ride with 2 kids... and the relief I felt with the front desk was awesome - the room was perfect, the baby's crib was delivered immediately. The bunk bed room was perfect for the little guy as well.
Breakfast had a great variety for the pickiest eaters (Love the mini-waffle machine).
Check out was easy and fast as well.

Thanks for making our trip memorable for the "right" reasons :)

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom suite for families was perfect for the 3 year old who goes to bed earlier than mom &am...

There are so many good things to mention about staying at this Residence Inn. The beds are heavenly. The room is quiet from outside and hallway noise. The employees at the hotel are very attentive and take care of problems immediately. They have a great breakfast and they always have coffee available. The pool, jacuzzi, and bbq area are family friendly. The gym is small but we had no trouble working out because there was usually only one other person in there with us. There is one downside and that is the parking. When the hotel is extremely crowded they have to open the back gate and you have to park in the lot that is very far away. We had to do this twice and it was not fun. We had an issue where someone forgot to tell us the protocol and we had to pay for that parking. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk they removed all parking fees for our stay. They went above and beyond and that made the inconvenience, like a walk in the park. The management is excellent at this location. They even will clean your room during a certain time period to meet your vacation schedule so they don't have to bother you while you are resting.

This was our family's first time at Disneyland. The front desk was wonderful. They made us feel very special. We loved the free breakfast which had a wide variety of protein and carbs as well as fresh fruit! There were times when the kids even got balloons. We loved this place and we will be back.

We normally stay at Howard Johnson accross from Park. It is great for little ones but rooms are dated there. We have a 12 and 14 year old and if I had younger kids again I would come back to Residence INN. We rented a car and was super easy to find paid extra for GPS but was worth it. When we checked in we were greated so warmly by Chantel. She was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay with maps and lots of info she gave us. The hotel is awesome you have a huge area to have a full breakfast buffet that is included. They have a room another room just for smaller kids to sit and watch a disney movie and the screen is as large as the wall thought that was wonderful for families. They have a nice poo and big hot tub was great to have coming back from park. Our son and daughter LOVED the basketball court played everyday they even have lights they turn on at night to play. This hotel was not as close to park as Howard Johnson but you can purchase shuttle tix at hotel and it comes every half hour right in front of hotel to park. It was awesome! We never walked to park. The drivers were so so friendly!! We booked a 2 bedroom suite we had 2 bathrooms which was great we could all get ready at the same time and it was so clean room 201 was lovely seemed newly renovated hallways and hotel seems so clean and new. We were given cookies upon arrival which was such a nice gesture! The breakfast is waffles small or large eggs sausages potatoes fruit yogurt toast cereal bagels jucies coffee all day with yummy creamers!! We met the Assistant Manager at one of the appetizer nights which is during the week only we had burgers or hot dogs with salad and pop chips was so nice other nite was big pretzels they change it up weekly!! There was nothing bad about this hotel we had a very quiet room and beds were awesome! Wish we could be there right now thanks so much Residence Inn we will spread the word here in Canada!!!!

I could not agree more. We thank you for posting this review. We feel that no hotel in the area caters to large families like the Residence Inn by Marriott. Whether traveling with a family of 5 or even more, the additional space enhances your trip by giving you room to relax after a long day. The people that work at this hotel are an exceptional group and greatly appreciate you noticing their efforts. We hope to see you back soon.

We love this hotel! We arrived early and were tired from a very long flight. So we truly appreciate the staff at the front desk for accommodating us early as well. We were three adults and one 5 y.o kid in a two bedroom (each having it's own bathroom and TV) suite. Therefore space was more than ample for us. We stayed for 6 days. It felt like home away from home. I love the full kitchen! We were able to cook steak and chicken pops we got from Target (which was just across the street). The location of the hotel was more than convenient. It was close to a lot of restaurants and a few blocks away from shopping outlets. The shuttle to and from disneyland was likewise a great plus. But what really made our stay completely enjoyable were the staff. They were all friendly and very accommodating. We commend all the staff, especially those at the front desk. Upon learning about my son's birthday, they gave him surprise treats ( which he discovered when he came back from disneyland). And we truly appreciate that. We will definitely be back!

Very skeptical of this hotel when we booked it since it's basically shoehorned into the old parking lot of the Hyatt Alicante next door. With the busy location there is some street noise. We needed a two bedroom suite for the family - room layout was great but wasn't as clean as other hotels we've visited. A big issue for us is that the forced air unit is in the master bedroom so it sounds like an airplane taking off every time the A/C comes on. Room overall was a little worn, ready for some updates. On the plus side it has a full kitchen with an oven - don't see those in the newer Residence Inn properties. Lobby is great, breakfast area has a kids area that is very convenient, BBQ/pool/basketball area outside is very inviting.

Room Tip: Probably ask for a high floor away from Harbor Blvd. You're probably going to get some street n...
