“Great hotel for family visiting Disneyland”
Reviewed 25 April 2011

Really enjoyed the stay. Was close to Disneyland, so you can walk or take the shuttle door to door. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was great in the mornings. Hotel was quiet at night and rest during the day if needed.

We were very pleased with the quality and location of the Red Lion, and the online price was better than most neighboring hotels, most of which were not nearly as nice (and many of which are motels, not hotels). Even better, when we checked in we asked about the Fireworks View and the upgrade was only $10 more a night, well worth the extra; we watched the Disneyland fireworks from our room 2 of the 3 nights we stayed.

The pool is very nice, although the area is a little smaller than it seems in the pictures. The rooms are well appointed, with fridge, safe, flat-screen TV and high-end bathroom, including full-size hair dryer and Bath & Body Works toiletries. The only unusual thing about the room is that there is no dresser with drawers, only a large TV console with open shelves, so if you unpack your suitcase, your clothes will be on display.

We tried the Roarin' Start Breakfast one morning and thought it was a good value for the price. Since we had a rental car, however, we drove a mile up Harbor Blvd the other two mornings and got drive-through from McDonald's which cost about half for 3 people.

The location is great; we could walk to Disneyland in about 15 minutes with a 7-year-old, so we didn't bother waiting for the bus or a shuttle. In fact, the hotel is located next to Disney's satellite parking lot (Goofy).

Room Tip: Ask for the Fireworks View upgrade when you arrive

Some minor issues, but were easily overlooked on our part- shower drain was slow and the the air conditioner was really loud. Even though we were there for 3 nights, I didn't bring it to anyone's attention, because we were at Disneyland during the day and spent very little time in the room, except to sleep. Great location, next to Disneyland...first day we walked to the park (took about 10 minutes). Our overall stay was pleasant and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed hear for 6 nights at the end of our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, both Nellie and Mayra, on reception, could not do enough to make our stay at the Red Lion easy and enjoyable. Location to the parks and the restaurants at Garden Walk is excellent and the Disneyland Park is only a 10 minute walk. If I was coming back to Anaheim then I would definitely stay here again. If you're still deciding over a hotel then search no more and book here.

Of the several Disney area hotels we have stayed in within a similar price range, The Red Lion was the nicest. The room was very clean and with a good layout including a bench to place our bags on and a lot of shelving. The little fridge was a bit awkward inside of the cabinet but still usable and quiet. The pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and also had a nice layout with shelves. We were there with a group and we were served a very nice breakfast buffet. When our plan shifted to an earlier start to our day, the staff shifted our buffet time to accomadate which really impressed me. The only real dislike we had was being placed in the pet section without warning. We had to listen to a lonely yapping dog for 2 hours before our the guest next to us returned to the room. The staff did make a call to the guest but it was still annoying until it resolved. Would have prefered having the option waiting for another room when I checked in.

Room Tip: Ask about pet friendly rooms

I booked this hotel through the military voucher program and was impressed with the professionalism of the staff. They had a spring break special which included the breakfast buffet and kids free under 10. It was a very nice buffet. I would go back in the future

Room Tip: Book in advance.
