Knott's Berry Farm Hotel
Ranked #2 of 19 Hotels in Buena Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I would just like to start off by saying "I love Knotts Berry Farm Theme park", so naturally we wanted stay at the hotel. We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights, and the price was very good considering it included theme park tickets to both parks for 2 days, 30 minute early entry and free breakfast buffet for all the days you are checked in at the Amber Waves Restaurant located in the hotel. I read reviews that the hotel was older and was in need of renovations, and this I have to agree with. We stayed in the standard 2 queen bedroom, the bathroom was extremely small and the shower was very old and not pleasant to look at, plus there is no fan in the bathroom so rust has made it's home in there. Our room was facing the Theme park and let me just say, the park does not close exactly at the time it says, so we had to listen to screaming roller coaster riders for about 2 hours after closing because the windows are not sound-proof. The beds were not very comfortable either, so that did not help. We stayed on the 6th floor, so noise level was minimal in the hotel, but you can hear everything when there is noise. The downstairs lobby is very nice and renovated, but I wish they would do the same to the rooms. The pool was a decent size, and there are plenty of seats and towels available, but the pool does get packed in the summer months. Check-in and check out was quick and easy, staff was very friendly, the breakfast was decent, not much of a selection for a buffet, but it was for free so can't really complain. I would stay again just for convenience to park, as it was a short walk away from the entrance, but will keep my fingers crossed for them to do a better job in upgrading the rooms. Two days in that park will tire you out and being able to rest in the hotel for an hour is wonderful.

Room Tip: Definitely request a upper level room but facing away from the park may keep the noise level down at...

We chose this hotel for the convenience of having the park right next door. We also had a good deal with the hotel and park package for 2 adults and 2 kids. The parking was plenty and easy. The pool, hut tub and kiddie water play were great. Snoopy was awesome. We had the breakfast in our room. I think the price and portion of the breakfast were good. Not a lot of hotels actually have room service anymore other than expensive hotels, so we were happy to find out that we can order room service there. The hotel looks older, but overall we had a good time and we were happy.

Hotel is right next door to the park, plenty of parking, rooms were clean, the pool water feature a big hit with the ggirls, and everyone that helped us were very friendly. Snoopy in the lobby was a great bonus at the end of the day!

Ended up here via Priceline. Reviews were generally good and average rating was 3.5 stars. However, having a so-so experience with the clientele when we stayed at another nearby hotel a couple yrs ago made us a tad nervous about what to expect from. Knott's.
FYI: It is NOT known as a "Resort" any longer-just KBF Hotel.

The Good Stuff: The staff, although very young were very, very nice and extremely helpful and friendly! That was an awesome surprise, and equaled or exceeded the pleasant nature of the employes at Disney properties. Seriously great front desk staff. Kudos!!!
The rooms are relatively and acceptably clean, as was many (but not all common areas. No dust on headboards, pictures, TV, etc.
Parking is convenient and free.
Nice LG flat screen TV.
The have uniformed security on premises at night (although the guys were usually flirting with the female desk agents and not in the dark parking lot or patrolling around the hotel quelling the partying teens as they should be.) even so, their presence did seem to work as things got VERY quiet at 11pm, even Disney hotels aren't that good at chaos control.
Gave us a personalized Knott's product gift basket for our anniversary!! Wow. Disney NEVER did that for us. Was a nice surprise!!!
Lots of pillows on comfy king-size bed!!! A necessity!
Close to 2 of our favorite eateries-Taco San Pedro and Teriyaki Bowl. Also very close to 2 WalMarts and Target. Easy access to highways as well.

The Not-So-Good:
Long black airs in tub, bathroom floor and in sheets. Ick.
Some stains on white comforter...flipped it around and made sure sheet covered it.
Carpeting used along wall as moulding to hide gaping holes at base of walls-was peeling back so holes were visible.
Weird use of black electrical tape to fix torn drapes.
Musty, moldy smell when AC on.
Unable to open window more than 2"...weird. Wanted to get fresh air in room to alleviate smell, but couldn't,
Very inconsistent housekeeping. As on some days would have a clean room by 11am. Other days-not until after 5pm would we get clean towels. Had to call 1x to get towels.
Not one single place to hang a towel in bathroom-yet had sign asking longer-stating guests to reuse towels....very inconvenient.
Rack for towels above toilet. Not a good location for obvious reasons.
Halls and elevators NOT kept clean as they should. The same discarded candy weepers and sticky, half-eaten "Tic-Tacs" remained in elevator floor during entire stay. Carpeting and floor outside elevators ALWAYS covered with sand(!) and generally dirty.

Not the property's fault - but rowdy people seem to choose this hotel - VERY rowdy. A group on our floor hung out in hall drinking and actually damaged a portion of the not-too-bad hall carpeting (sad). Oddly, as mentioned before, the noise levels dropped to near zero at 11am miraculously. Prior to that though, sounded like a Duck Dynasty/Honey Boo Boo/Jersey Shore reunion that would start by 8am.

Yes, we would stay there again.

We planned a 2 day trip to Knotts Berry Farms and figured we would stay here since it was right next door to the park. The rooms online looked really updated and nice but once we actually got into the room I was a little disappointed.

It's been a while since they've remodeled the actual room. The furniture is nice but old carpet, old antiquated bathrooms and fixtures. The beds were the most uncomfortable ive slept in in a while.
The positive and I mean POSITIVE, the staff was really nice and accommodating. Every interaction that we had was a great experience, which seems to be hard to get now days from the service industry.

The other POSITIVE is as I mentioned earlier, the hotel is a 2 minute walk to the park and some pretty bomb restaurants and snack places (awesome old time candy and bakery spots)!

I think it really deserves 2 ☆'s but the customer service was great and i would give this place 5 stars If they would do a little remodeling and add some comfy beds. However, im afraid this probably will not happen being it IS right next to the park and that will sell rooms in its own sense.

We have been staying at the Knott's Resort for about 15 years. I love Amber Waves restaurant and the lounge. We stay every year for the Halloween Haunt, and I love how the hotel is decorated! This trip (June 2014) we went to the Titanic Experience down the street, so we stayed at Knott's because it was right there and we love it so much. Staff is very friendly, hotel is clean and atmosphere is great. Location is awesome right next to the Knott's Berry Farm park and shops and restaurants. LOVE IT!!!

Our stay at the Knotts Berry Farm Resort Hotel was wonderful. The location and its personnel were awesome. Rooms were very comfortable and quiet. We had a view of the pool and easy access to the park. Being able to walk to and from the hotel to the park is a great relief. No problem with secure parking. Went during the 4th of July weekend when it was very hot and humid outside but we were very comfortable inside the hotel. Definitely will return.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and comfortable. Pool view is nice
