“Good choice for a family of four going to Disneyland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

We decided to stay here because of the AAA rate, 5-10 minute walk to Disneyland, free parking, and free breakfast. We arrived 30 mins before check in time and they were able to give us an upgraded room!

I had sent an email prior to arrival letting them know that it was my son's birthday and anything they could do to make him feel special would be appreciated. The next evening, after spending the day at Disneyland, we came back to a gift bag for my son with candy, games, and a couple balloons. Very thoughtful!

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with family

I organised my own holiday using Expedia and I was very happy with the price and location. I don't think I would have liked to have been in any other motel. The children enjoyed the pool and it was so close to Disneyland. When our windows were open you could hear the people screaming on the rides. This added to the atmosphere of the motel. While we were there the motel were playing a 'find mickey mouse' game within the motel. Easy walk to Disney with children. Breakfast was Ok. The staff were very helpful when I needed to organise a trip to Hollywood.

Hotel is very clean and the breakfast bar is great. Wonderful place to stay with your family would highly recommend this Hotel to any one.plus shopping and restaurants.the garden walk.we go once a year.me and my wife have 6 kids so we could only afford to go once a year.but we go all out.we really do have a great time when where there.I think next would be me and my wife only.plus the hotel is very affordable.the rooms are a good size.with a kitchen, a fridge,dishes, a stove.we got the imperial deluxe.I think next year we will the one with the bunk beds.theres really nothing else to say but whoever goes will have a wonderful time.

This hotel was a fantastic place to stay while on a week long tip to southern california and Disneyland. It's a very quick - 5-10 minute walk to Disneyland itself which helps quite a bit. Free parking was great and the free breakfast was quite good as well. The rooms that we stayed in were satisfactory and great for a place to sleep in at night.

Stayed here for a business trip while attending an event at the Anaheim Convention Center. Great location -- 10 minute walk to the convention center. Room and bath were clean. Nothing fancy -- basic room with comfortable beds and additional sofa and table with chairs (very basic and not so comfortable). Small suite type accommodation suitable for a family. Small refrigerator and microwave. Good coffee for sale in the lobby bar in the morning. Water with fruit available in the lobby all day -- very nice. Breakfast provided but I did not try that. Would definitely stay here again. Quiet hotel preferable to most of the motel type accommodations nearby.

Our main criteria for a hotel for our Disneyland stay was a place within walking distance of Disneyland, had a free breakfast and free parking, all at a reasonable price. We also wanted a place that had a room with a separate kid's bedroom (for my daughter and grand-daughter) and a room with a king size bed for us. I researched many hotels near Disneyland and this was the only one that offered both free breakfast and free parking. It was just a 10 minute walk to Disneyland so it was very easy. The rooms were nice and quiet, the bed was fine and we slept soundly all three nights we stayed. We appreciated the helpfulness of the front desk staff when we had special requests. They were friendly and helpful to meet our needs. We would definitely stay again. We have stayed at many hotels near Disneyland and this is the first one I can say I would visit again.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter, away from the pool and if your are on the 5th floor, you may get to see th...

Room Tip: We had a master suite and a room for the kids It was very spacious
