Reviewed 29 May 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was walking distance to Disney which was very convenient. The rooms need refreshing. They weren't terribly dated, but could have been just a bit nicer. The room was clean overall. Complimentary parking and breakfast were a bonus. Staff was friendly. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if there were an option of half stars.

Room Tip: We had a 2nd floor room which was sunny & bright.

Dear Susan T,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I’m glad you were able to take advantage of our complimentary parking, and complimentary hot buffet breakfast every morning. We also offer complimentary in-room wireless internet, social hours twice a week, and a grocery shopping service, which I hope you were able to take advantage of as well.

We are currently awaiting our upcoming renovation, so we greatly appreciate your patience as we look forward to that time. Until then, our staff is taking any action steps necessary, and is doing an excellent job in keeping our property clean and well maintained.

Thank you again for your review, and I hope to welcome you back to our hotel on your next Disney visit!

The hotel is perfect for people with familys visiting Disney land, I was there on business, there is no place that served food other than at breakfast, and no bar, the breakfast room was very busy and the food very basic, the room itself was adequate and comfortable although dated,
the general area and the pool outside are very good,
To sum up if I was to travel with my family on a self catering basis this would be fine.

Dear Cheekochow,

Thank you for your honest review of our hotel.
Our property is located ½ a mile from Disneyland and California Adventure Parks. Because of this, we do see many families come in and out of our hotel for the purpose of visiting Disneyland.

We understand that every guest has their own preferences when it comes to their hotel stay. For those who place importance in having a restaurant or bar area in their hotel, the Anaheim Marriott located just a few blocks away from us will offer such amenities.

Although we do not have an on-site restaurant on our property, we are located directly across the street from the Anaheim GardenWalk where guests will find an array of dining options such as the Cheesecake Factory, Bubba Gump Shrimp, McCormick and Schmick’s, California Pizza Kitchen, P.F. Changs, Johnny Rockets, and more.

Thank you again for your review of our hotel. I hope to see you back with your family the next time your travel to Anaheim!

We stayed here for 5 nights in the 2 bedroom unit with the 2nd bedroom in the loft. Units are dated but not disappointed considering the price. We were originally booked over at the Fairfield but this place offered a much better deal, especially with the free breakfast and parking. The suite is in need of a strong fan to push down the heat in the loft as it got very hot upstairs and when we turn the AC lower, the lower floor people almost froze to death! :)
Pool is simple, clean and most importantly, heated. The breakfast is as good as anything I have ever had free, a few notches above 'okay'. I would strongly suggest against walking to the park! may be fine walking there but walking back is no fun, even though it took about 15 minutes. Take the shuttle! we would most likely come back to this place should we come back again to the Park.

Dear cowboydanno,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our sunny and bright weather makes Southern California a prime destination for travelers. Since heat rises, there is a temperature difference between the upstairs and downstairs areas of the bi-level Penthouse loft suite. Our housekeepers make it a point to observe the temperature of each room. If irregularities are noticed, we will have our maintenance team check on the air conditioning equipment. We understand that every individual has their own personal temperature preferences. Please contact the front desk if anyone in your party is uncomfortable. We will do our best to provide accommodations such as sending extra blankets for those who are cold, or a fan for those who are warm.

As you mentioned, it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to Disneyland from our hotel. Our property is located ½ a mile from the main entrance. There is also the option however, to take the ART Shuttle, which is run through the city of Anaheim. The Shuttle is $5 per adult and $2 per child for a pass that can be used to go back and forth from the park and the surrounding Anaheim Resort Area all day.

Thank you again for your review. It means a great deal for us to hear about our guests travel experiences. I look forward to welcoming your family back on your next trip to Disney!

We stayed in a loft suite with our two adult children and it worked out great (two bathrooms!). The grounds are well maintained, breakfast very good and staff were helpful. The property does need an overhaul (bathrooms and furniture) but linens were clean and beds comfy, I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews but I question whether some people specifically look for issues. We walked to Disney as we were all adults but I think most families would want the transportation pass. That being said we liked the location because it is not right next to the park.

Dear 2299,

Thank you for your wonderful review of our hotel. I am glad our bi-level penthouse loft suite was a great fit for your family.

While we await our upcoming renovation, our staff does an excellent job in keeping our property well-maintained and in prime condition. We appreciate your patience during this time.

It is great that your family enjoyed the easy ½ mile walk from our hotel to Disneyland. The surrounding area is well lit from the Anaheim GardenWalk located directly across the street from us, which is great when walking "home" in the evening from a long day at the park.

Thank you again for your review of our hotel. I am glad you were able to take advantage of our amenities, and I look forward to welcoming you back next time!

We are a large family. We rented a 2 bedroom room. The 2nd bedroom is a loft. It was quite warm up there which is the reason for a 4 and not a 5. Everything else was excellent. Food was as expected. Location was excellent. Shuttle was very very convenient. We never had to wait. It was affordable, efficient, just perfect for our stay! We would definitely stay here again! I researched the hotels thoroughly and I feel like our choice was great!

Room Tip: Get a room closest to shuttle stop. If you forget something you don't want to walk a long way a...

Dear fht,

Thank you for your excellent review. I am glad you and your family enjoyed the location and amenities of our hotel.

The ART Shuttle, as you mentioned, is a great convenience that most families going to Disneyland take advantage of. The Shuttle comes to our property about every 20 minutes or so. It looks like your family came at just the right pick-up times! An all day pass can be purchased at our Disney desk for $5 per adult and $2 per child.

Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad that you felt you made a great choice in staying with us, and I look forward to welcoming you and your family back on your next Disney visit!

If you are travelling to Disneyland with your family, then this hotel is a great choice. The rooms have well equipped kitchens, the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, there is a decent breakfast every morning, and it's not only a walkable distance to Disney, but also to the GardenWalk where you can find a selection of restaurants and a movie theatre.

I did read some reviews that griped about the distance to walk to Disneyland. It's two and a half blocks to the entrance, and they are NYC type east to west blocks (LONG), so allow about 15 minutes. It's quite an enjoyable walk, even on the return with children!

Dear Dublin3,

Thank you for your review and recommendation of our hotel. I am glad you find our hotel a great place to stay when travelling to Disneyland with your family.

As you mentioned, we offer a hot buffet breakfast every morning which comes complimentary with each guests’ stay. We are also conveniently located directly across the street from the Anaheim GardenWalk, which has great dining options to choose from, such as the Cheesecake Factory, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., California Pizza Kitchen, P.F.

Many guests just like yourself tend to enjoy the 10-15 minute walk to help unwind after a long day at the park. The area is beautifully lit being surrounded by the Disneyland evening lights, and the GardenWalk evening lights.

Thank you again for your excellent review. I hope to welcome you and your family back again on your next visit to Anaheim!
