“This Hotel is now called Colony Inn Buena Park”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Colony Inn for 2 nights in between travelling. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. We arrived early to check in and our room was not available so we were kindly upgraded to a larger room that was available at no extra cost. We had a King Room which was a great size and was a good price. The room was very clean and had basic amenities. Breakfast was provided and was very basic. It consisted of cereal and toast, tea/coffee/orange juice. Very basic but all you need to start the day! The hotel is located right across from Knotts Berry Hotel / Theme Park. It was a 2 minute walk to the theme park and a few minutes to the Knotts Soak City. To get to town walking it took about 20-30 minutes to walk to local restaurants. There is plenty of off street parking and the pool was clean. We would recommend staying at this location and would stay again. Thanks Michael and team :)

The room was big, but the comforters had holes in them and the pillows were waaay over used. The bathroom had mold, and the drapes didn't quite close all the way. We stayed here as a last minute decision while going to Disneyland, and we stayed 3 nights. The room was definitely sub-par, but we could handle it. The part that was HORRIBLE was the 'continental breakfast'. Firstly, practically no food. A few cereals, muffins, coffee...if you get there early enough. Next to no seating, like 15 chairs and 40 people clamoring for them. You can't take the food back to your room. They will block your way. One member of our party managed to sneak out with a bit of food and was chased down back to our room. The staff were rude, and completely inept. I would NEVER stay again. And NEVER recommend this place to anyone. STAY AWAY.

Wow. I'm not usually at a loss for words. But I am with this hotel. It's now known as the Colony Inn of Buena Park, not the Super 8. As another reviewer mentioned, yes, this hotel has long term guests and it created the feeling of staying in a run-down apartment complex.

The room was clean enough, and although it was non-smoking, you could tell that it used to be a smoking room. The smell is just baked into the walls and bedding. It was an odd odor--old and musty. I refused to walk barefoot on the carpet and wouldn't let my son sit on the floor.

The TV remote didn't work. The AC unit sucked. While the area for the bathroom was large, it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in a really long time. There were dirt smudges all along the bathroom door.

The lights are on a sensor and for some reason, the light in the bathroom kept coming on in the middle of the night. Then, at midnight, the smoke detector started beeping. You know, that chirping it makes when it needs the battery changed. On top of that, the alarm of the car parked in front of our door went off for 30 minutes. My husband reached for the phone to call the front desk, and the buttons were missing from the phone. We just looked at each other and said, "I want to go home."

As we checked out, the front desk clerk asked me how everything was. I paused, and said, "Fine." He smiled. They are very aware of the state of that hotel.

Room Tip: A good room is any room that doesn't belong to this hotel.

An average hotel, much like anywhere else we've stayed over our month in USA. So, 3 stars for average. But add to that an extra star for cost (we paid $55 per night) and proximity to Knotts.

Minor issues with hand basins not draining well but of no significance. Friendly staff, nice basic continental breakfast and large spacious room.

Initially went to Portola motel, which was a major disappointment (the room smelled of sweat and the bathroom was the worst), bailed on that and went to this motel, and it was a major upgrade in price, cleanliness, and location.... we will be back again if in the area...very happy with the decision. Our trip to Knotts was saved because of this.

The hotel has been renamed to Colony Inn and unfortunately the new management and name didn't put any money into it. The rooms were poorly cleaned with a lot of lint and noticeable dust. The sheets were worn and definitely many years old. There were no Geese harmed in the making of their tiny pillows. Honestly, the pillows you receive on the airlines are more comfortable than these ones. On a positive note, the gentlemen at the front desk were kind. The only reason we stayed here is because the Knott's Berry Resort was fully booked.
I rated this hotel 2 stars only because it is right across the street from Knott's Berry Farm, which is about the only thing going for it. If you are going to spend the majority of your time out and all the other hotels within walking distance are full, than this one will serve its purpose.
