This was a LONG awaited trip to Disneyland and the decision to stay at Stovall's Inn made everything absolutely magical.
We landed around 11am and was at the hotel by 12pm. They accommodated our early check in but I was disappointed at first when we were told they didn't have the room I reserved (through hotels.ca). But the front desk staff spoke with housekeeping staff and found us a room that was just cleaned and exactly what we had asked for: king bed, top floor, facing Cali Adventure.
The room was rennovated and furnished with modern decor. Bed and pillows amazingly comfortable. 4 large and well stuffed pillows with extra lounging pillows atopped an extremely comfortable mattress. Seriouly, I had the best sleeps I've ever had in a hotel room! Sink is outside of washroom to allow others to get ready while one is in the shower. Air conditioner located at rear of room, it's really not THAT loud - I sleep with earplugs anyway. Flat screen TV which has s-video jack (I always pack my laptop and s-video cable to play movies on the TV) and has many good channels. Ergonomic office chair with desk and there's also a small eating table with 2 armchairs. Microwave and mini-frige also included in the room. WIFI was a little hard to connect to at times but was reliable when connected.
Fireworks and clearly visible from the walkway right outside our room. There were also 2 pools and I believe 2 hot tubs but we never got around to using it. Those seen using it looked like they had a good time. Exercise room consisted of a tv, all in one workout machine, treadmill and maybe an oliptical and free weights? Only took a peek inside and there was someone working out so we didn't stay. It did seem a little stuffy in there though... my partner said he only saw a small window that was already opened.
Breakfast goes until 9.30am and it was pretty good. Large room with a good amount of seating. Didn't go there every morning but of the mornings we did go there seems to be a rotation of the "hot food of the day" - pancakes, french toast, supplemented by danishes/donuts, rolls with gravy, 3 types of cereal, toast, apple/orange juice, coffee, hot chocolate mix, apples/bananas, hard boiled eggs. It was one of the best continental breakfasts I've experienced at hotels and the staff in there were always cheerful and polite.
It took us under 10 mins to walk to the gates of Disney/Cali and that was through the "long way" (around the parking lot of Grand Cali and through Downtown Disney). We cut through the the Grand Cali lobby the first day and it probably shaved a few minutes off the walk. We didn't do it any of the other days though cause we were able adults capable of a 2 minute detour.
Coco's and Tiffy's are 2 restaurants literally 15 seconds away and both offer good portions for their prices. Wonderland Market is about 5 mins walk away but it's pretty expensive there. $7.99 for 15 pack of water and that was supposed to be a sale!
The only negative things I can say about Stovall's is that the walls aren't overly thick and the towels could use a change - not that they were dirty/musty, they were pretty rough from excessive washing/drying.
Overall, this was THE BEST hotel experiecen I've had. Mind you, I don't travel that much but do visit at least 3 hotels in any given year. We got a wicked price from hotels.ca which came to about $90ish CAD per night. The paper inside the room claims it's $199 USD per night? Anyway, great hotel, great location, will definitely stay there again for my next trip to Disney.
