Stayed here a week with my family and another family and overall had a great experience. We knew going in that the hotel was away from the parks which is exactly what we wanted. The Disney hotel area was super expensive over the 4th of July weekend and the value for what you get at BW Placentia was much better. If your looking for that "Disney Hotel" experience that don't stay here. If your looking for a great value away from the hustle and bustle of the parks than this is a great choice. Hotel location is one block off the 57 and 91 freeways so getting to all the parks is super easy. About 15 minutes to Knott's and 12 to Disney. Anaheim stadium and Honda center are both about 5 minutes away. Beaches are about 25-30 minutes which isn't much closer than Disney area hotels. We chose this property because it looked nice, had free hot breakfast, pool, workout room and was located near all the things we wanted without all the extra resort fees, parking fees and hecticness of the Disney area hotels. I will say that the breakfast room can get busy especially when there is a tour bus staying which happend on 4 of the 7 days we were there but that's to be expected. We've stayed right near Disney before and the breakfast rooms are just busy. Lots of people trying to get ready at the same time. We noticed after 9 am that it was pretty much empty. I will say that if you can speak Spanish you'll have a much easier time communicating with the staff. We didn't have too much of a language barrier. Breakfast room has hot eggs, sausage or bacon each day along with biscuits and gravy. They have hot waffles, toast, bagels and fruit and juice. With the amount of people trying to eat food goes quick but they do replenish it fairly fast. I will say that after 4 or 5 days we were hoping for something different but what can you expect after a weeks stay. It worked fine for us and the 3 kids in our group. The pool area was super clean and we pretty much had it to ourselves. The hotel sits back a block off the freeway and faces a high school to one side so we didn't experience much noise at all since school was out. I imagine that during school season its a bit louder. The hotel is older but has been remodeled and the rooms have a refrigerator and huge flat screen tv's. We didn't experience any technical problems during our stay. Overall we had a great experience. Like other reviews the elevator is SUPER slow so if your staying on the 2nd floor which we were than just take the stairs. I will also say that the stairs were closed down for "painting" which in our 7 day visit we didn't see anyone painting. I'm guessing they closed them down because they didn't want the tour bus kids running up and down them. So my recommendation is if your looking for a better value than the resort area hotels than this is a great choice. You don't get charged a resort fee or parking fee and there are plenty of food choices just an exit up or down from the property.
