“Great looking 42" LG TV - as long as you don't turn it on.”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Friendly front desk as long as you aren't asking for any actual service. If you expect to get some sleep while you are here please bring good earplugs and a couple of sleeping pills. In lieu of proving soundproof rooms perhaps the management could post signs in the hallways to ask guests to "be considerate, our walls are paper thin so keep your noise level to a minimum - thanks in advance". The hotel management also needs to address the housekeeping issue pronto as we had to chase a maid down to vacuum our filthy carpet which had lots of food and debris left from previous guests. The room shows so much wear and tear for a recent remodel (the handle to the fridge cabinet has nearly come off - and the fridge is barely colder than the room). The reason I am giving it 2 stars is that the WINDOWS DO OPEN (which is a blessing and a curse). Fresh air is so rare in hotels these days - but the view onto the parking lot (where the employee of the month is blaring his radio waiting for his friends to go party) is less than savory. The second star is for the wireless internet which worked pretty well most of the time. There is a microwave that will hold a plate.
We did have a nice engineer change out the TV our second night and he explained that "some of the TV's just don't have the right cable card so they don't get many channels".
If you are on the ground floor of the hotel be prepared to walk up to the second floor if you want ICE. There is no Hot Tub by the pool which is much too cold to swim in. The breakfast is not worth getting up for to get jostled about for stale scraps. We did walk over to the IHOP as other guests suggested but were just not willing to spend $12 for three pancakes (970 calories). If you want a great breakfast go to Catal at Downtown Disney for LESS. As has been mentioned the walls here ARE PAPER THIN - you can and WILL hear a child crying, bed springs creaking, drunken laughter, and any amount of private conversations and embarrassing bathroom sound effects. The padded cell wallpaper wouldn't be so bad if it actually covered up some actual soundproofing material. For all those Priceline customers here's a tip: This property is now listed in Disneyland - Anaheim South - Garden Grove -Orange - so be prepared for this wild card to show up.

Room Tip: Bring your own sheets and pillows and some really good earplugs as all the rooms are about the same.

In regards to our TV channel situation, we are experiencing some equipment difficulties with our Direct TV channel processors. We are diligently working on this issue with Direct TV and have been placed on their priority list. Direct TV is working on a resolution to our problem but can not give us an estimated completion time. We are confident that this issue will be resolved by Direct TV in a timely manner.

We stayed 1 night here after finishing up a 4 day trip to Disneyland. I feel like it was a run down hotel that was hastily refurbished with substandard products. When we arrived there was only 1 person working the counter and I had 5 people ahead of me to check in and it took about 25 minutes to get through the line. Nothing "WOW" about his property.

I just wanted to take the time to leave a review on here as being in the hospitality trade, people are soon to write a negative review but dont always make the effort when they have a good one!
This hotel is absolutely fantastic, my partner and family stayed for 2 weeks in the beginning of September 2011 and I have recommended the hotel and the whole holiday to so many of my friends and family.
All the staff are exetremely friendly and really seem interested in your having a good time! From reception, breakfast and bar staff to the maintenance guy my mum got stuck in the lift with and the housekeeping team.
A very well done all round!! x

Room Tip: Ask when booking for the view facing the road, you get to see the disneyland fireworks!! Also note t...

We didn't love this place. Housekeeping, as noted by other guests, was bad. The floors were never cleaned during our stay, not even in the bathroom. It seemed like housekeeping just made beds and ran out. Even though they knew we had 3 people in the room, they kept shorting us on towels. One night, we got back from Disneyland and we had zero towels - zero. I went to the front desk to complain, and someone brought us towels about 20 minutes later. No apology was offered and nothing was done to try to make things right. I guess because we booked the hotel through a third-party site at a reduced rate, they don't care if we're happy. The front desk just didn't care. I would prefer to not stay here again because of the housekeeping issues and lack of concern.

My husband, 4 yr old son, and I stayed here for 2 nights. It's an easy 10 min. walk to Disneyland/California Adventure. Loved having a refrigerator and safe in room. IHOP was right next door, as well as taco and pizza shops about a block away. Parking was convenient and the hotel allows you to stay parked until midnight the day of check out -- bonus!!
Only complaints....shower didn't seem to get hot enough for my liking, the heated pool was a bit chilly, and the A/C was pretty loud, but we would still stay here again -- great value!

We had a good experience at the Red Lion in Anaheim. We stayed during low season but I can see some problems if you stay when it is a busy time. The rooms are great but if you have a room that adjoins with another you can hear the talking next door. The breakfast was free because of the package we were able to get and the parking was free also. But if you do not get the package with free breakfast and parking you will pay $14 a day for parking and $9.99 for breakfast. The breakfast line was long but we got in pretty fast. If it was more crowded I can see where you would waste a lot of time. Pick up a cinnamon roll at Disneyland at the Jolly Holiday bakery or at the cart across from the Haunted Mansion. One more hidden charge, lots of little pennies and dollars tacked on for resort fees with the taxes that are not clear when you make your reservation. The hotels should be made to include these in their rate like the airlines are having to do now. We got a great rate of $79 but with taxes etc. it was much more. The walk to Disneyland is 15 minutes and they do not have a shuttle like some of the other closer hotels. You can pay for the Anaheim Resort transportation that stops outside the doors of this hotel.

Room Tip: There are rooms that face Disneyland so you can see the fireworks from your room when they are offer...

We had no problems during our stay at this hotel. Everyone was attentive and made us feel welcomed. The only recommendation is for softer pillows. Will definitely book again in the future.
