Reviewed 29 April 2014

So we chose this hotel after seeing it had decent reviews and after finding that our usual low end motel (The Quality Inn) wanted $130+ a night during our stay.

Rooms: The room was really quite large which made us happy. There was plenty of room for our portable crib, which is always lovely. The beds were decently comfy as were the pillows which is a nice find. The air conditioning kind of had a hard time in our room. It took about 6 hours before the whole room was cooled. One side was cold and the other was hot. Just poor circulation.

Bathroom: This was the worst part of the room. The fan was super loud and did not move any air or steam from the bathroom. The shower had hardly any pressure and required cupping our hands and splashing it on ourselves.

Breakfast: There were some donuts, danishes, and muffins in the main lobby. We actually knew this ahead of time and just went to Target and bought some breakfast stuff (milk, bowls, spoons, food).

Location: It wasn't that bad of a location, a short 15 minute walk to the parks. It didn't even feel that long after a long day at the parks.

Overall it was a good stay and we'd recommend it to others. Really we just want a decent place to crash after a day at the parks.

My husband and I were able to take a quick last minute trip to Disneyland and needed a budget hotel. The Anaheim Islander got good reviews so we gave it a try and we are both so glad we did. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. We just stayed for one night but it was a really good night sleep. The location was easily walkable to the parks but by the end of the day we had very sore feet so we opted to get tickets for the ART bus which had a stop directly in front of the hotel which was great, it was also the first stop on the way back from the park which was lovely! The gentleman who checked us in and out was very friendly. We arrived early in the morning so our room was not ready, which I expected, but he apologized for it. Also we had some chocolates we had gotten as wedding favors the day before and he was nice enough to put them in the office fridge for us until we could get into our room.
Overall the room and the location were great and the price was right. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to Disney!

wasn't sure about this place but stayed because of the wonderful reviews which were correct, the motel was very clean and yes I saw them take the bed spreads to be washed, always a good sign. The people that manage the motel were very helpful, friendly. The beds were very comfortable and yes we would stay here again. Really enjoyed the private bedroom away from the other two beds with a personal private entrance into the shared bathroom thank you for a great stay!

We stayed here for 2 nights April 9 and April 10. When we went into the room we noticed it was a little dated. The beds were comfy and there was a fridge and safe. The bathroom was small but the bedroom was large. Overall, I would return due it's location.

We spent April 4th 5th and 6th, 2014 at the Islander in and suites. Our stay was perfect. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly owners and staff. We were able to check in early which was so nice. They switched our room to accommodate us and wee actually ended up with a larger room. We dropped off our suitcases and headed to Disneyland. It was easy to catch a bus right outside the property. It was a 10 minute ride to the park gates. The walk if you choose to take it is only about 15 minutes but after walking around Disneyland the return bus pass for 5 bucks is real nice. (LOL) Our beds were very comfy and the room accommodated us just fine. There were two 17 year old girls and an 18 year old girl plus myself in the group (I'm the Mom) There was a nice continental breakfast the next morning and we especially liked the donuts and danishes. When we left on the Monday we had to check out by 11.Our shuttle bus back to the airport did not come until 2. We asked if we could stay n site and enjoy the pool for a few hours and they said of course. This was so nice. I loved this Motel. The owners and staff all deserve a round of applause for their wonderful service. They were always smiling and very helpful with directions, bussing and other things. I will stay here again! Oh yes must say the rooms were very clean and this was something that I truly appreciated. For the price we paid I could not ask for anything more!

My husband and I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Disneyland and various restaurants. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and were certainly a good deal for the price we paid. While there are other high-rated hotels even closer to the Disneyland entrance, I will choose to stay at the Islander Inn and Suites again and again, as long as they continue to have such welcoming and accommodating staff working there. The workers in the main office always greeted us with a smile and were enjoyable to talk to. Check-out time was at 11 (if I remember correctly), however our shuttle was not scheduled to pick us up until 1:30. The staff were very understanding and allowed us to stay the extra two and a half hours for no extra charge or hassle.

Wonderful hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We showed up very early not expecting to get into our room at that time but had hoped to park in the parking lot until check-in however the staff were nice enough to let us into our room when we arrived. The room was nice and clean and extremely inviting. The staff was helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and will continue to book with Anaheim Islander Inn & Suites for all future visits. We will also recommend this hotel to our friends and family. Thank you Anaheim Islander Inn & Suites for treating us so well on our visit.
