We arrived early Friday morning, but our room was not ready. We put our bags in storage and went off to the park. Came back to the hotel around noon and were able to get our room. Few things.. Bell staff are super awesome and friendly. Concierge's know everything about the park. Craig, I think that's his name was able to give us some good tips about the park. Thanks Craig for telling us about the west wing. Front desk staff is really friendly as well. The property is an outdoor so just an FYI. Hotel is walking distance about 20 min. Restaurant is good, not the greatest. thanks Anabella your the best. Oh and thanks Auggie we finally made you smile. Thanks for your help with our luggage see you in 2014.

Dear travel000831,

Thank you for such a positive review on Trip Advisor! I am so happy to hear that you found our team knowledgeable and friendly!

Our property is an outdoor property with seven acres of lush, landscaped grounds and an award recipient of “Anaheim’s Most Beautiful Property.” We are located across from Disney’s California Adventure and right next to the Anaheim Convention Center, a perfect location for both family and business travelers.

Thank you for your five star review and we are so glad we made you ‘very happy.’ We hope you visit us again soon!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Silva

We have stayed at the Anabella for our yearly visit to Disneyland for over 5 years in a row. It is a 15 minute walk to Disneyland which makes it very convenient. The rooms are large and clean and most have been updated in the last two years. If you are at a convention at the convention center; that is right next door.

Room Tip: We love the Mission suites with a separate twin bed in a small room inside the room.

We stayed here on Christmas Eve December 2012, while visiting Disneyland. We chose it because it looked cute and the price was good, but the old saying is true...you get what you pay for.

The Good: The hotel is within short walking distance to Downtown Disney and the convention center. It's also very reasonable, we paid $139 a night through hotels.com. It is a motor inn so you can park right in front of the door to your room, which makes unpacking easy. The room was a single queen size bed, with a desk, tv and small bathroom that looked like it had been updated recently with fresh paint. We felt safe there, it was all families and couples. The lobby was cheerful and the staff were very nice. You can purchase park tickets in the lobby as well which was convenient. The hotel is also next door to Tiffy's diner, which offers excellent breakfast and late night treats.

The Bad: The bathtub had a very large grasshopper/locust bug in it. The small venting window above the shower was old and didn't shut properly either. There appeared to be some kind of wetness in the floor of the closet, upon further inspection it appears to be water leakage from some source. We shut the closet and didn't use it. The bed was a single queen and was not comfortable at all by normal hotel bed standards. It sagged and made noise. Unfortunately the worst part was that the walls were paper thin, so we could hear the family next door talking to their kids, and the tv playing. We could also hear every car, every noise outside as though the window was open. It was a cold night so we turned the heater on, and that was next to the bed and very loud as well. Needless to say we didn't get a wink of sleep all night.

Overall we wouldn't stay here again but I wouldn't tell someone else not to. I would just like to warn others that if you do stay there, don't expect it to be quiet and don't expect the beds to be high quality, you will be in a great location for the park but you'll be going there on very little sleep. Next time I will pay more and stay at one of the hotel chains like Hilton or Sheraton nearby.

In a world full of cookie cutter hotels, the Anabella stands out. It has a charm and ambiance not found in the Marriots, Hiltons, etc... My room had a bungalow type feel and even though the hotel was packed with familys it still felt private and secluded. It was nice that they had an adult pool and patio for business travelers such as myself. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The room was very nice, hardwood floors, marble bathroom, super comfy beds, giant flatscreen TV...
I will definately stay here anytime Im in the area.
Thanks Anabella for an awesome stay.

I have been staying at the Anabella for a number of years and have always had a pleasant experience. The service of the staff is top rate, I have always been well looked after. The rooms are beautiful and well-maintained. To top it all off the the hotel grounds are a joy to walk around and you are a short stroll from Disneyland.

Room Tip: Second floor is best

My review of this fine little hotel is long overdue but after reading recent reviews I felt compelled to do so.
This is GREAT accommodation for families enjoying Disneyland & not wanting to pay an arm & a leg for somewhere to sleep! The locations is superb with a convenient shuttle and although the rooms aren't all that special, we were in Anaheim for Disneyland, not to sit in a hotel room. The breakfast menu was superb...the fresh fruit, though typical on any California menu, was such a treat every morning!
In conclusion, to address any complaints people who travel might have about towels & maid service in any hotel: I worked hospitality for many years & I can say that maids are overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do in a day & don't always know how many people are in a room.....SO if you want to be sure you have towels for everyone, a little note (not to mention a TIP every day!!) is nice. Also there are methods to make sure you are a) not woken up early b) have your room made up by a certain time. Just use the signage provided.
End of sermon.

I am a Travel Agent and stayed at the Anabella Resort over Easter weekend. We had the pleasure of staying in the Concierge Suite Room. This room was gorgeous with its hardwood floors, free breakfast, free parking, 2 beds (one is kind of seperate from the other) and the plush robes! This property is beautifully landscaped, and they have a seperate ADULTS ONLY pool!! My 5 year old loved the pool/hottub and of course the Easter egg hunt and Easter Bunny on Easter morning! The staff was wonderful, and anything we needed/wanted was done promptly. Its just a quick walk to Disney or else hop on the shuttle that comes every 20 minutes. I would highly recommend staying at this property! You will not be disapointed. :)

Room Tip: Stay in the Concierge Suite! Beautiful Rooms!
