Residence Inn Anaheim Maingate
Ranked #45 of 119 Hotels in Anaheim
Reviewed 2 March 2014

This is a great alternative to the Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel, or Paradise Pier hotels. You get to ditch the car and just walk. And you get much more room at a much lower price. A full 1 or even 2 BR apartment with full kitchen, and an easy walk to the park gate.

We stay at a lot of Residence Inns. Admittedly this one is a bit dated- not updated like 95% of their properties. But, it still works.

If your main priority is proximity to the parks, and you don't want to spend the extra $$$$$$ for the Dismey hotels, this is worth strongly considering.

Room Tip: Choose room away from pool

Dear Jpm,

Thank you for your review and recommendation of our hotel! As you mentioned, our proximity to the Disneyland Parks and nearby restaurants, along with our room layouts and amenities make our hotel an excellent choice for families. Our renovation is due to take place this year which will give all of our guest rooms a fresh look. I am glad that you and your family had an enjoyable stay at our hotel. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Disneyland!

This is by far my favorite Residence Inn AND my favorite hotel in the Anaheim area, especially close to Disneyland.
The Residence Inn concept is all-suite, and I particularly like the detached-housing style. It makes me feel like I'm more at home in an apartment with neighbors rather than in a large hotel with other guests. The suites are spacious, especially the Penthouse ones, and provide everything a family could possible need to feel comfortable on a vacation.
The pool and spa area is open late and early, which is refreshing in the Anaheim summer. The free parking, free breakfast, and additional amenities like laundry and the evening social add to the value. The walk to Disneyland is an easy 15 or so minutes.
Families: it's a bit pricey, but well worth the extra space.

Thank you Sudobuntu for your wonderful review, and for being one of our loyal guests!

You hit the nail on the head when describing the layout of our hotel. As you mentioned, our hotel is condo-style with direct access to the outdoors. That along with the full kitchens in every room gives guests the feeling of being right at home. I’m glad that you take advantage of some of our hotel amenities such as our 24 hour pool and hot tub, complimentary breakfast, and evening social hours while you are here as well.

Thank you again for your review of our hotel. I look forward to welcoming you back home the next time you visit Anaheim!

This is our first time in this hotel and we are very impressed! We are a family of four with two small children so having a fu kitchen was very helpful and saved us a lot of money. The room was clean, service was great and breakfast was awesome! One thing I wasn't so happy with was because we are in the first level, I could hear a lot of footsteps. Since I'm a light sleeper, it would wake up either early in the morning or late at night. However, it didn't bother the rest of my family. I think it was just a couple nights when there were a bunch of kids who seemed to be stomping instead of walking. The convenience of the bus that goes to Disneyland every 20 minutes was great. We are definitely coming back next year.

Aside form being a super populated Hotel in a small area..the rooms are quite and reasonably stocked! We had to ask for this and that for the kitchen, they were super about it..
I have been here twice. The first room we had needed alot of TLC. Dishwasher leaked and did not clean dishes...the bathroom had a leak that they could not find. The carpet was old and torn. They have a full time maintenance crew that is 'johnny on the spot' with any issue. We got to know one of them quite well due to odd issues that kept arising in a weeks time.....The front desk was responsive and wonderful. But the 2nd time I was there it was a whole other scene. The room was updated, crisp and well cared for. I am guessing they are slowly updating the rooms - and there are alot of them. The breakfast buffet was out of control. Being a kid friendly hotel the buffet was well abused and not very attractive by the time we got there...we cooked in the room for the duration. All in all, We will stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn Disneyland Main Gate. It is located in a park-like setting not a typical hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food choices. Our accommodations were ideal for our family. The staff helped us with any request or question we had. It is about a 10 minute walk to Disneyland.

I am a Travel Agent in Australia and stayed at this hotel in September of last year. I cannot fault this hotel, the grounds/pool/tennis court are all lovely and well kept. It is within walking distance to Disneyland, but if you don't want to walk, it has an ART bus stop on site. It is also a couple of minutes walk to the Anaheim Garden Walk, which has many great restaurants, incluing our favorites PF Changs and The Cheesecake Factory. The staff were wonderful, I would like to particularly like to thank Vanssa, she was a pleasure to deal with on both of our stays, and could not do enough to help us. The hotel has a little convenience store, plus a Disney desk, a free breakfast, and a great BBQ area which is great, particularly for us Australian Travellers (we love our BBQ's) We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and on the second visit, a one bedroom loft apartment, both had full kitchens. Furniture perhaps a tiny bit dated (otherwise I would give FIVE stars) but the best thing was it was CLEAN and tidy. Being a fussy Travel Agent, I am very fussy, and was not dissappointed in this hotel. It has a family village resort type atmosphere and I would receommend it to any one, particularly families. I cannot wait to return. Thanks Residence Inn for a great stay x 2!

Room Tip: The resort is very spread out, so I think all rooms would be good.

This hotel is by far the best place to stay at when your in Anaheim. The name tends to fool a bit as its not located anywhere near the main gate to Disneyland. I haven't stayed here during the off season but during the summer season there morning breakfast is the best. Every thing you can think of. I've stayed here a couple of times when bringing the whole family, the hotel upgraded our room from a mini suite, to a mini suite with double rooms and bathrooms. The staff are great to work with and the rooms are very clean, beads are comfy.
