We just came back from a weekend at the Disneyland Resort. We originally planned to stay at one of the Disney properties but that plan was quickly tossed when we learned that Paradise Pier, the "budget" option at the resort, would cost us $200 per night.
The Candy Cane Inn is a motel...your room will face the parking lot there is no room service, etc, etc. Doors slamming shut woke us up in the morning as did other guests' candid conversations on the walkway. However, the rooms are clean and nicely decorated. And although the hotel's website makes the hotel seem a little chessy, it really isn't. The service was good and the staff was helpful. The continental breakfast was very good: bagels, donuts, croissants, danishes, muffins, cereal, instant oatmeal, juice, milk, coffee.
The fireworks show is visible from the second floor of the south side of the hotel. Our room, however, was right in the middle of the complex and the view was obstructed by California Adventure's Tower of Terror. My advice: don't watch the fireworks show from ANY hotel room. It just doesn't work without the music.
The hotel is about 10 minutes from Disneyland turnstiles. If you absolutely HAVE to stay as close to the park as possible (outside of the Disney properties), stay at the Best Western Park Place Inn or Park Vue Inn.
Nearby eating options include an IHOP and Subway. There's a 7-11 just south of the hotel.
