I stayed here twice with my fiance over the summer. We decided to try it out after reading the good reviews, and figuring out that even though we would have to pay the $12 parking for Disneyland, the total price would STILL be cheaper than staying in another hotel within walking distance of the park. And it worked out really well! The staff at the front desk give you a map with directions to Disneyland from the hotel. It took us a couple times to get it right, but once we did, they turned out to be great directions--they take you right to the parking structure. The drive is ten minutes or so, maybe even less. On the way is a big Target, useful for things like food and sunscreen.
The hotel itself is pretty neat. It definitely shows some age, but not really in a bad way. The lobby is inviting, with a gas fireplace. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms were pretty neat. I felt like I was staying in someone's home in the Mediterranean. The carpet shows a little wear, but it's not that bad. They keep the place clean, it never felt dirty. The beds were super comfortable, we actually came back in the middle of the day for naps. There is also a couch in front of the TV, which was nice to have. My favorite part was the kitchenette! A full size fridge and freezer, stove, microwave, sink and dishes meant we got to buy food at the store to save money. It was great! We ate breakfast in our room, which was nice and relaxing, and we had some wine when we got back in the evening :). The mexican tile in the kitchen area is very pretty. The room (king studio) was very spacious, we felt very comfortable. If I were to stay here again, I would probably choose the ground floor. We stayed on the second floor the first time, and there was more noise; kids were running up and down the halls late at night and early in the morning. Downstairs the sound is more muffled, the floor doesn't bounce, and also, the hallway doesn't run the length of the bulding because of the lobby in the middle, so it's less tempting, I think, for kids to run up and down. Also, I think the front side of the bulding is quieter. The back side gets noise from what I think was a parking lot in the back--folks came in real late and were very noisy. One more plus for downstairs, you get a nice private little patio with a fountain, I think it helped block the small amount of traffic noise we could hear.
I gave 4 out of 5 for location just because you're really more in the city, it's a little rougher around the edges than the Disney areas, but it's not bad at all. It's very convenient to Disenyland.
We would definitely stay here again! A nice soothing escape after the crowds at Disneyland!
