It was nice to be able to walk from the hotel to both the Anaheim Convention Center and the Disney parks. Hands down the best breakfast buffet in the area. Eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, oatmeal, fruits, and an assortment of bagels, English muffins, and breads to toast - very cheap!

The hotel Is ok but the tv reception seems very old.. It Is very pixelated. The ac unit is very loud and the refrigerator does not get cold. The only plus side was that it was very close to Disneyland

Stayed here for Disneyland. It was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. It had a keurig coffee maker which I thought was cool. A good size king room. Renovated and nicely put together. The walls are a little thin but just turn on the tv and your neighbors are a thing in the past. What's great about this hotel is that you can just walk next door to the free Disneyland shuttles and you've saved $16 for Disneyland parking. Overall, great experience. Will be back in February for another Disneyland trip.

Overall the Red Lion was great for the price. Great location near both the park and the convention center. Walking distance to restaurants, stores, and other needs. You can tell it's older, but in good condition and nothing was out of repair.

The breakfast buffet was rather lack-luster and although convenient, not worth the price to me when IHOP is next door.

My only real complaint would be the bathroom light and shower. The bathroom light turns off automatically after a certain amount of minutes. It doesn't matter whether you're looking in the mirror or using the toilet, it will shut off and you have to push it again. Also, our shower (our room being at the end of the hall), took an incredibly long time to heat up. We got in after Disney closed at 12:30am, and it took almost ten minutes for the shower water to become warm enough to get in.

I would stay again and recommend this hotel, but would like staff to work on these concerns.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the pool can see the fireworks out of their windows at night. Rooms closer to the be...

I stayed here last weekend for a trip to Disneyland. It was a great hotel- check in staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was nice, clean, and comfortable. It even had a view of the Disneyland fireworks even though I didn't have a "theme park view" room. I walked to Disneyland from the hotel and it was definitely close enough. The staff was very friendly about keeping my car in the hotel lot after I had already checked out (while I was at Disneyland). The s'mores by the pool were awesome, and FREE! Totally awesome to enjoy before bed. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: sign up for the red lion club before you book (its free) and you will get a sweet discount and also...

Booked here for Blizzcon 2013. Overall nice, but a few 'misses' on some simple things. Shower had little pressure. I should have complained then but didn't figure much could be done and by the time I realized it, I had unpacked and wasn't up for changing rooms.

The gym is pretty decent. Filtered water dispenser, towels and TV for your workout. I was hoping to have a pull up bar but it wasn't meant to be.

One thing that would be a nice touch is if they offered a free coffee/beverage in the lobby as you wait for your shuttle after check out. It just seemed 'nickle and dime'-ish, since the coffee wasn't especially great. It would give a nice last impression as people leave.

Overall, no real deal breakers, nothing awful. Just a few things that could make it better.

The hotel is in a great location, very close to Disneyland and several restaurants. Grounds are clean, check-in was friendly and efficient. However, the rooms are a bit antispectic looking for my tastes, especially the faux tile wall paper giving the room the feel of a surgery room than a comfortable hotel room. The room generally seems clean and function but *not* "comfortable", "warm" and "inviting".

The hotel is starting to show some signs of wear and tear, especially around the doors where there are a lot of dings and dents. The tub also had discoloration too, and one of the fixtures on the floor was loose.

For a family on a budget, this hotel will do.

Parking is NOT free, it is 14.00 per night, a bit hefty for this area?

Also, breakfast is not included, it is ~10.00 for adults, kids under 6 eat free, however, next door to the hotel is an iHop which may have better food (if not, there are lots of other restaurants within walking/driving distance).

Internet is HORRIBLE at this hotel - it is even slower than dial-up internet! I was only able to download at 5 - 10KB/s which is unacceptable. I called their support line a couple times of times, and they rebooted the equipment once, but that only resolved the issue temporary for <1 hour minutes. In this day and age, Internet connectivty should not be a second thought but one that is actively addressed - for some, such as me on business travel, broken Internet is like a broken toilet or shower!

Rooms only have two accessible power plugs; considering the number of electronics people have these days, the rooms should be wired with more plugs.

I noticed in the lobby the hotel wants to be #1 on Tripadvisor, but they have some ways to go. Service wise they're fine (nice people), however, the rooms need a make over (the wall paper is awful) and they definitely need a better internet provider.
