“What a value!”
Reviewed March 6, 2008

Stayed at this hotel recently with my family and was completly surprised! I booked an advance purchase rate and while I realised at the time of booking that I was not able to cancel it the rate was tooo great to pass up!

Check in was smooth and easy and I was actually upgraded becasue they had sold out!! It was a great perk! Their breakfast room was a bit under done however I did peek through the glass doors of the new room! And I am sooooo coming back!

As far as I am concerned this hotel offers you a great amount of value!

Just got back from a 7 night stay at this hotel. Check-in and out was very easy. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. In fact, about 15 minutes after we checked in, the front desk called to be sure everything was satisfactory for us.

The only critical comment was that it seemed that only 1 person at a time was on duty at the front desk so sometimes you had to wait for that person to return to the desk or wait in line. I had a relative try to reach me via phone a few times and she ended up calling me on my cell phone because nobody answered the hotel phone.

They had the "standard" continential breakfast items (their famous warm cinamon buns, cold boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, instant oatmeal, cold cereal, juice, coffee) but were working on their newer hot breakfast room while we were there, so that will be available soon. Next door is a Denny's restaurant and when you show them your hotel room key card, you get a 10% discount off your bill, which was nice.

Location for this hotel is about 2 blocks from a freeway exit. Although the name has "Disneyland" in it, isn't really near it. The hotel made arrangements for us to take a taxi to Disneyland and it cost about $20 - could be a little more or less depending on the traffic.

Their "business center" consists of 2 computers at the edge of the lobby and is for use 24 hours a day. Didn't use the pool or the hot tub since the weather was actually cool and drizzly while we were there.

Our room was clean. We had no problems or issues. I would stay there again if we ever are back in the area.

We just got back from a stay last week when we were in town visiting family. This was our second stay at this hotel and we came back because of the comfortable bed. The room itself is OK, nothing special but is maintained well. The only complaint is that all the rooms have a musty smell to them. But the air worked well, mini fridge cooled really well, & free high speed internet in the room with good signal strength. I've never had such a great nights sleep in any hotel as I've had when staying here because the bed is really comfortable-would recommend for this reason alone!

I stayed in this hotel from May 6th through the 10th with my family. We were told that the room was big enough for all of us (family of four), but we were VERY cramped!!! The room was average with a dresser, desk with two chairs, two queen sized beds, closet, television, and bathroom... nothing extra and nothing short. Not much else to say but that this was extremely average... If you are used to staying at Holiday Inn Express hotels, the breakfast was average as well - nothing out of the ordinary.

Word of caution, though. If you are attracted to this hotel because of its title, "Holiday Inn Express Placentia - Disneyland Park Area," don't be fooled. Yes, this is within five miles of Disneyland, but it is extremely far in Los Angeles traffic - especially if you go during any commute time. It took us on average one half an hour to get to the hotel in the morning and one evening when we left Disneyland at 5:00, it took us over an hour to get back to the hotel!!!

If you are looking for a standard room with no frills or are traveling on business, I would recommend this hotel. If you are looking for a hotel to stay at when visiting Disneyland, I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Garden Grove or another hotel closer to Disneyland.

  • Liked — Included breakfast
  • Disliked — Advertised as "Disneyland Park Area" - it wasn't!!!

We stayed there from March 25-April 2,2007. Check in and check out was a breeze. Cleaned our room daily. Didn't get the tip that we left in the room! The free breakfast was ok. But there's a Denny's right across if you want heavy breakfast. Very convenient place to stay in. Went to Disney for 2 days(just a short drive from this hotel about 6 miles). Bed was great! Only negative here was there's no refrigerator(needed it for storage of my kid's milk). Parking was good. Shower was great. Overall, we had an awesome stay. Will gladly stay here again next time!

P.S. The kind manager of Denny's (i think) gave my daughter a stuffed toy when we didn't get one from the toy machine! Haha!

We only stayed at this property for 1 night passing through LA.

The location was great 2 blocks off the major highway. Staff was very friendly upon checkin. Upon getting to our oversized room, it was in excellent condition with the new "Simply Smart" bedding. We didn't want to leave the next morning after sleeping in the new beds. There was also free internet service at this hotel.

The hotel was very quiet, but did not have much of a view. There is a Denny's at the front of the propety so you can grab a bite to eat anytime you want. We would stay at this property again if we were in the area.

  • Liked — Location, size, and comfort of room.
  • Disliked — No view.
