best family friendly hotel with shuttle to Disneyland

I am looking for a family friendly hotel that is within a 5 minute shuttle ride to Disneyland. Want a hotel that has suites. Hotel Menage looks nice. Anything in similar price range I should consider?

Thanks!

Hotel Menage is not the place for a 3 1/2 year old, it is more adult and older teen oriented.

There are few hotels with shuttles except those that were grandfathered in when the City of Anaheim started ART.

The best family friendly hotels are Howard Johnson's, Candy Cane Inn, the Best Western Plus Anaheim Inn, Best Western Plus Park Place Inn & Mini Suites, the Fairfield Inn and Residence Inn Maingate. Not all will have suites, but they are all walking distance.

HoJo's is the furthest of the bunch, but with a 3 1/2 year old would be my first pick going away. The water play area is ideal for their age set.

Two that I am familiar with are the Candy Cane Inn, the closest, and the Hampton Inn Garden Grove. Both have shuttles. The Embassy Suites is also next to The Hampton Inn.

The Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel is very Family Friendly and is on the ART Shuttle system, here are a couple of links, one for the Hotel and a discounted rate, and one for the shuttle.

Also, agree with the prior comment about Hotel Menage, it has a 24 hour pool and is known for its late night parties.

Another worth considering is the Sheraton Anaheim , 5 mins away from Disneyland, they have there own dedicated shuttle buses, ( no ART shuttle scrum at the end of the day ) large clean rooms, nice pool area , cafe/ shop for all your essentials, we have stayed here with our kids a few times and found it to be a great family hotel

Why not consider just walking to Disneyland and staying across the street from the Disneyland Main entrance? Plenty of good standard Motels there that are very convenient and very close walking distance as already mentioned, no need for shuttles. Plus a few Hotels in a little farther walking distance.

Most places to stay near the entrance are going to be family friendly, so no real issues there, except the Menage that has already been mentioned.

Heres a Map of Hotels in the Disneyland area so you can see where things are located. The Disneyland Main Entrance is off of Harbor blvd near where it says "East Shuttle Area" on the Map.

The Doubletree is a nice well rated Hotel, and you would need shuttle service to Disneyland.

You may want to consider something like the Residence Inn Maingate.... which is a nice well rated Hotel about a 15 min walk to the Turnstiles that go into either Park. They have larger suites and full kitchens as well as free full breakfast and some weeknight light meals. They also offer the Art Shuttle service which goes from Disneyland to alot of area Hotels mulitple times per day for a small fee per person.
