Best Place to Stay
Close to the park and very clean and nice!!!
Friendly Staff & Comfortable Rooms
Overall I had a pretty good experience with this hotel. Check in was quick and easy, the staff was friendly and helpful, my only complaint was the shower. Our shower had very little water pressure, it was almost like a mist rather than a stream of water, and it would fluctuate between hot & cold. It was a small detail and I would still recommend this location in the future. The location is great, within 10 minutes to Disneyland, and centrally located by restaurants so you don't have to drive out of the way.
I’ve stayed at the Castle for years. The rooms are simple but clean and the location is great. The pool is a little small and I don’t love how it’s in the parking lot but the castle theme is always a favorite of my kids. Not a far walk and close to our favorite restaurants- Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen and they even have a CVS not far. I normally book early to get the extra night free so it's an even better deal.
The hotel was nice. A few downfalls, such as the water constantly going from really hot to cold. The one that thing that I myself was a bit bugged with was, I asked for an Iron and an hour later had to go to the desk and ask again. I also asked for towels and toilet paper one afternoon, and I had to go and find the cleaning staff to get these items. Other than those things, the hotel was reasonable. Quick walk to Disneyland and restaurants near the hotel.
Staff very nice! Room was very comfy soft beds. When taking a shower the water would go from hot to cold from time to time but other than that my stay was amazing! Thank you Castle Inn for the friendly service. Its about a 5-10 minute walk to Disneyland.
Very convenient location
The room was very comfortable and the hotel was about a 5 minute walk to Disneyland.
Great Hotel at a grest price
The hotel was reasonably priced with comfortable beds. Since it's only a 15 minute walk to Disneyland we didn't spend much time in our room except to sleep. My only complaint about the room was the lack of outlets by the beds. The hotel was within walking distance of several restaurants and a bus stop. Since we didn't rent a car, being so near a bus stop was nice.
15 minute walk to FUN!
Only 15 minute walk to Disneyland's front gate! Free parking, basic rooms but always cleaned and made up by hotel staff before our return each day. Great location and price. Room included parking, small frig, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, wifi, TV/cable, small pool (did not use). I would recommend and stay there again. Cannot beat location, parking and price.
I absolutely loved staying here. Close to Disneyland and the staff was so nice (:
Birthday get away
great location, Great stay over all. Only thing missing is a continental breakfast of some sort. would recommend to others and will stay again in the future.
nice room close to disneyland
We stayed in this hotel the first week of January 2018. It is a nice hotel, clean room, comfy bed, mini fridge, microwave, tv and has friendly staff. It is within walking distance to Disneyland, Walgreens, Subway, a Chinese restaurant, Pizza place, Denny's and Ihop. We walked to many of these locations. The hotel doesn't offer a breakfast but we chose this hotel because it offered free parking and was in walking distance to Disney. The hotel also has a small store where you can buy snacks, drinks, breakfast items and other Disney related items. We bought our own breakfast meals from Walgreens and the hotels store and that worked for us. We used the pool one day we were there it was cold outside and the pool wasn't heated so we mainly used the spa but it worked for us, the staff gave us extra towels to use. My kids also loved the castle design of the hotel it added to the magic of our vacation. the only thing we noticed was sometimes the water temperature would vary while using the shower but it wasn't a big deal to us. We would definitely stay here again.
Spacious rooms withing walking distance
This is in no way a 4 star resort, but for the Disneyland area, it is a decent place to rest between park visits. We stayed 5 nights around Thanksgiving. Depending on your walking speed and waiting at crossing lights, it is about 7 – 12 minutes from the security booths. The room had two double beds, one bedside table, dresser, small closet, and TWO tables (a desk and small breakfast size table) and four little chairs. In addition, there is a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, and basic toiletries. We did not turn on the TV so I can't say anything about the channels available. The room was always clean and plenty of towels provided daily. The downside was the pillows (lumpy foam), the fridge did not get cold enough, the outlet by the sink did not work despite requests to fix it, and the hot water struggles to keep up with demand so at times the pressure is very low and changes to scalding hot then freezing cold. A tip to avoid the water issues is to shower at night when the pressure and temperature are consistent. The beds were small (doubles) and firm but at least not lumpy or uneven. Our room was located across from the lift (elevator) and it was quieter than I hoped and we only had to hear the occasional loud family shouting at each other while waiting for the lift. The front desk always met us with a smile even if they couldn’t fix our not cold fridge or broken power outlet. They had a room ready for us to check in early which was great since we had been up since 2am to travel to Anaheim from Oregon. The front desk will store your luggage if you arrive early or depart late. However, it is not a secure luggage check with your items tagged and stored away from other guests. The luggage closet is just a locked room up front and there is not system in place to ensure that when you pick up only your items. This made me nervous, but we didn’t have a lot of choice since we arrived at 9am for a 3pm check in and didn’t leave until 5pm for a 11am checkout. Our Thanksgiving trip experienced record breaking hot weather and the pool was cool and clean. The pool did not seem to be heated and was very cold – had the outside temperature not been so high (95!!) it would have been too cold for me. No breakfast is provided. There are several places to buy breakfast nearby or just stock up on basics at the small shop next to the lobby.
Just pick something else
Okay, I'm like you. You're reading these reviews and a lot of the negative ones seem like they're left by people that are high maintenance and needy. I'm not that person, I don't complain and I don't have any special requests. That being said, Castle Inn and Suites was absolutely awful. The moment we walked in my wife and I were hit with a strong urine smell (I know it's just the a/c and not urine) and an even worse mold smell in the bathroom. My sense of smell is weak so if it made me catch my breath you know it's bad. After dousing the room and a/c unit in some febreez that I borrowed from a maid, we thought it would clear up in an hour or so. After it didn't I walked to the front desk and explained that I wasn't mad and wasn't going to make a big fuss but I really wanted something to be done. She was very sweet and said she would send someone up. The maintenance guy showed up quickly and.....sprayed our a/c unit with some febreez....no joke. We also thought maybe we had a "bad room" but walking down the hallway we smelled a few other rooms that had their doors open and they were just as bad. At this point I knew that almost nothing could be done on my end so we just dealt with it for the week. Now, I knew we had an amazing location so the quality of the hotel would be lacking (typically at Disneyland, close hotels aren't great and further ones are better for the most part) so I wasn't surprised by the light in the bathroom hanging out of the ceiling, chipping paint, the fun shower game we played where the temperature swung wildly from frigid to burning hot, etc because plenty of reviews warned us of this. Okay, so now if you've read to this point you may be thinking, "hey fella, just deal with it because you'll spend your days in the park. You just need a place to sleep. Who cares if it's not a Hilton?" Well, I'm with you. We just made jokes about it and tried to leave earlier each morning. After 5 days in the park, spending about 16 hours there each day, we arrived to our hotel Friday night exhausted. When faced with the prospect of staying another damp smelly night there, we just decided to check out at about 10:30 pm (they have 24/7 desk service) and drove the 10 hours home because that seemed more appealing. None of this is exaggerated, I've never left a review like this. Please, just....choose another hotel.
My family just spent 4 nights at the Castle Inn and we loved it! The castle theme was very cool and the kids loved meeting Rusty the knight. Yes it's an older building so if you are looking for all things shiny and new,this may not be the place for you.If you are looking for a comfy place to rest your head at the end of a long day at Disneyland though,it's perfect.It's so close,you can literally see the Guardians of the Galaxy ride across the street.My kids thought that was the coolest thing ever and it just amped up the excitement level.We stayed on the top floor and it was quiet all night.The room was clean and spacious for my family of 4 and the beds were comfortable enough.The shower was a little odd,with the water changing from hot to cool intermittently but it was manageable.I definitely recommend staying here and we look forward to visiting again!
This hotel met our every need. Great stay!
My daughter loved going home to our castle at the end of the day
Not the best room but a good hotel for a good price within walking distance to Disneyland. The beds were hard but the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. Only one of the three washing machines were working but they offered a laundry service for $34 and that ended up being totally worth it. The best part about staying here was my daughter's excitement to go back to our castle at the end of a long day at the park.
Not bad if you like a damp room with ants!
Not impressed at all with this hotel. Being close to Disneyland is the only benefit and not worth it. Out room had ants and we were told they would take care of it but never did. The shower was outdated and water temp constantly fluctuated. The room was always damp even though it was not muggy outside. There are better places to stay than here. The staff were pleasant but the room was not.
Close to Disney but that's the only pro
This hotel was pretty bad. The room only had 1 nightstand, the cleaning lady's came to clean the rooms at weird times. The earliest they came was at 7:30 am and then came the next day at 5:00pm. They didn't even clean our room on the last day so we had to reuse wet towels that were sitting on the ground waiting to be refreshed. The staff at the front desk was very nice and the location is a 15 minute walk to Disney but that's all that was good about this hotel. The door on the room didn't line up correctly so light came though the bottom. We were lucky none of the crickets that were outside the rooms came inside. The rooms had little lighting, very dark. You could hear literally everything going on outside, kids running, people yelling, the cleaning ladies walk by with the carts, the ac units are noisy, you could hear conversations in the room next to you. Overall bad experience and will spend more money to stay at a nicer hotel.
It is great for the price
You can't beat the price for staying across the street with parking included. The beds were comfy, the pool was a big hit with our family but the customer service in the lobby was horrible. I had a note put on my car, even though the flyer was on the dash board, saying our car wasn't registered. When I went inside, like the note asked, I was greeted with an attitude like why are you in our parking lot. When they realized they were wrong they tried to blame it on someone else instead of just apologizing. Then I misplaced my debit card. I went into the gift shop and the man helped me look all over. When I went into the lobby the girl cut me off and shouted NO when I asked if anyone had turned one in. We did enjoy the short walk though :) - I would stay here again, just make sure you don't loose anything or need anything from the lobby HAHAHA
Walking distance to Disneyland
The hotel is close to Disney. Staff extremely friendly. Pool was ok kids loved it! Would be nice if bigger especially when alot of people are in the pool. The room was big with fridge and microwave. Air conditioner worked well. The only thing I can really complain about is the lighting in the room. Even with all the lamps on the room was dark at night. I wish the bulbs were brighter. There wasn't enough light for me to read. But I would stay here again.
Close to Disney
My sister and I stayed for the Tinkerbell run. We enjoyed our time here as it was just a quick walk to Disneyland. We had a issue with one of our bathroom lights that had gone out and we called front desk and they sent someone to fix ASAP.
Best ever hotel experience! !
My 6 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week. We loved it! It's a 5 minute walk to Disneyland. Great area with lots of places nearby to eat. The room was huge! The beds were awesome! The staff was very friendly from check in to check out. The pool was just what my daughter loved and the jacuzzi is just what I needed after walking through Disneyland all day! We will definitely be returning to Castle Inn and Suites! Thank you for making us feel at home!
Great inexpensive stay close to Disneyland!
We stayed 6 nights here while we spent a week at Disneyland. We booked through Get Away Today and our check in was really quick. It's right across from the south end of DCA. We had spent the day in Long Beach so coming in from the south our kids couldn't see the park so we were able to surprise them once we got to our room. It's motel style where the doors go right outside. The rooms are perfect for what we need. The beds were comfy but after a full day at Disney I think everyone could have slept on the floor and slept all night. There was a mini fridge and small microwave. We brought stuff from Costco like breakfast sandwiches, gogurts and poptarts. We could eat breakfast right in the room. There are places down the street too but for us this was a cheaper option. There is not a freezer part in the fridge but there is an ice machine by the elevator so we'd fill bags with ice and use those in our soft cooler to carry food into the park. The rooms were clean. We like to leave a little tip, even if it's only like $5, for the lady that cleaned are room with a little thank you note. They took great care of our room during our stay. It was only about a 10 to 15 min walk to the park. By the end of the day that was about as far as I could make it. Any further and I think I might not have made it. But really the walk isn't that bad and for the price and the fact that you don't have to pay a parking fee each night, it's such a great location. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. It's not the nicest place around but if you're on a budget it's the nicest place you can stay for the price. I know I saw reviews about bugs and stuff. We didn't have issues but we were there the end of January into February. It's a great place for those on a tight budget like us.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel during our Disneyland trip. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the room was very quiet, which helped us sleep better, as we were very tired each night, from being at the Park all day!! I would highly recommend this hotel for your Disney stay!!!
Short Walk, great value
This is our first Disney trip and while not a resort I understood it would be a standard hotel room. It was clean, nice sized fridge in room, lots of towels available and very quick walk to Disneyland. Free parking is also a plus. I do wish they used brighter colors for bedding and furniture but the beds were very comfortable and included extra pillows. Would definitely stay here again
Clean, comfortable, close to Disney
Just seeing the hotel from the street put me in a good mood, it was just fun and exciting. The rooms were average, they were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The mini fridge and microwave were very convenient and nice to have. We were able to walk to the corner to go to Walgreens, CVS, or 7-11 to get breakfast items which helped save some money. The walk to the park was fast. The pool area was pretty small but being there in January it wasn't busy at all. My only complaint was the water temperature would fluctuate while in the shower, it wasn't a huge amount but you could tell it would get a little colder every so often. We stayed for a week and would definitely stay there again.
Lots of hiccups.
The hotel had construction on their parking lot while we were there that we didn't know about until we checked in. This made the parking lot fairly hectic as well as interfered with our ability to easily access or room- though honestly it was the not being told until after we checked in that was the most frustrating. There is zero hot water pressure in the rooms- it's almost like it's been purposely turned down. To get the hot water to work well enough to use you have to turn on the cold water quite a bit. Don't use th bath products they provide you with- bring your own. My hair was frizzy, tangled, and smelled odd after one use. The castle theme is neat but the pool was small and full of bugs. The rooms seem very clean and the housekeeping staff was very lovely. Mostly the hotel is just very outdated and unorganized. Beds are not at all comfy but you will sleep just fine of you prefer a firm mattress. Walking to the parks with two young kids took around 15m+ to reach security- would be much faster with adults only or kids in strollers.
A nice place to stay close to Disneyland
Not a traditional five-star hotel, but the welcoming staff and comfortable accommodations were a welcome site and the end of each of our Disneyland days. The staff is overwhelmingly helpful. Their upbeat attitude is a great way to start your Disney vacation. They're knowledgeable about the area and have solid recommendations for nearby resources. The room is nothing fancy, but the beds are comfortable and the pillows are plentiful. The housekeeping staff did a great job cleaning each day. The walk to the park takes exactly 7 minutes with two kids in tow. It's close to several restaurants, CVS, Wal-Greens should you forget anything. If you're looking for a walking-distance hotel, this is a great place to stay.
The hotel looks pretty exciting from the street but we were honestly disappointed with it. I know this because I spent the first night at the hotel looking up other hotels on the street wishing we hadn't prepaid for this one. First of all... I get it... complaining about a hotel is a 'first world problem'. It's being kind of spoiled... having said that, our whole family was irritated with the gross smell coming from the air conditioner.. like stinky feet. I know it wasn't just our room because as we'd walk the outside hall we could smell it also coming from the others. The toilet overflowed the first morning. The front desk staff was nice enough to have it taken care of by the time we were back from the day.... but I was grossed out by the tile floor wondering if a perfect stranger would have really taken the time to disinfect the floor for us after toilet water had poured out onto it. I'll never know.... The pool area was small but my kids were happy. In November it was great. I can't imagine how packed that little pool would be in the summer though. The gift shop was helpful. So overall.. this is an old hotel. Don't expect anything wonderful. the outside castle look is the best part. But I do want to acknowledge the room attendants. They are overworked and underpaid at any hotel and their staff here did a great job having our rooms in perfect order. So despite my complaints and in general being disappointed in my hotel choice, I have to give a shout out to the people who worked hard there. It's not their fault the hotel is quite aged.
Sadly this rating is lower than i normally go. The main reasons are because there were bugs in the room and the sink smelled like sewage. The beds were comfy enough and the staff was friendly but the room overall was not very good.
Clean, comfy, and walking distance to Disney.
We would absolutely stay at this hotel again! This was our first visit to Disneyland and staying at the castle within walking distance just added to how wonderful it was. This hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed for 5 days and will pick this place over and over again!
I love this hotel! It's inexpensive, but of high quality. It's a 5 minute walk to the park. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they do a great job at keeping the rooms clean. The outside looks a little outdated, but the rooms are very nice. I stay here every time I go!
Loved this Hotel!
This hotel was extremely clean and had a great working A/C. We didn't mind the walk, it felt very safe. Pool is nice and the hot tub is great as well! The theme is great and the staff was extremely kind! Can't wait to stay again!
Easy walk, quiet and friendly staff
I loved the rooms, they were plenty big enough and I had large families with small kids on both sides and didn't hear them at all. Very easy walk to Disney and the mall around the corner. Beds were comfy, check in was a breeze and the staff was friendly. The pool area is small, but I didn't let that influence my hotel rating because I do not go to Disneyland to swim :)
Clean and reasonably priced.
COMFORTABLE BEDS!!! Comfortable and plenty of pillows.Clean rooms and great service. Free parking is a big +. A/C unit worked well and QUIET. We stayed in other neighborhood places in the past and based on that we will come back to Castle Inn
First, I liked how large the room was and how clean it was because my husband and I went with our 4 year old and cleanliness is important to us. That's about it...the beds were very hard and not comfortable to us at all. I'm also 5 and a half months pregnant and when I checked in I requested a ground floor so I didn't have to walk up and down the stairs and person that was helping me looked at me like I was bugging him. The other service members were friendly, though. The first day we walked to Disneyland because we were told it was just a few minutes and we had a stroller. Halfway through the day we came back to rest (our stroller also blew a tire that day so we weren't able to use it the rest of the trip) and I went back and asked about the shuttle to the park. *note: before I booked this hotel I called and was told we could use the shuttle* but when I asked the front desk person they said they didn't offer tickets to the shuttle because it was so close to the park. Walking with a pregnant lady and a 4 year old made it about 10-12 minutes instead of 5. We also came back to all of our dirty towels still in the room, but the beds were made and we had 2 fresh towels. So to recap- Things I liked about the hotel: large/clean room Things I didn't like: no shuttle after being told there was (which is why I booked it because I thought I'd have the option), hard beds, cleaning service just making beds and not taking towels, feeling like I was inconveniencing front desk upon check-in with a special request.
For the price, this was a great hotel. It is within walking distance of Disneyland & DCA. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious but we did upgrade our room. This is not a luxury hotel, but it met our needs and the beds were comfortable. Everything worked fine, toilets, sinks, air conditioner, tub, shower, refrigerator, etc.
This is the second time staying here its not too far from the park and just around the corner is a bunch of restaurants and a strip mall!
The best thing about the hotel was that it was so close to the parks. We also liked that it was close to a CVS, Gardenview Walk and other restaurants. My son called it "Mickey Mouse Castle" so he absolutely loved it too. The elevator closest to our room was closed pretty much the entire week, it was back up and running on Friday. But it wasn't working on Saturday at all when we were trying to get all our stuff back to our car to leave. The showers were good if no one else was taking a shower, flushing a toilet, or using their sink; we would get scalded with hot water and then freezing water. When we first arrived we were inquiring about the location of Medieval Times and the best way to get there and the two people at the front desk couldn't really give us a straight answer. They offered a map that we never did receive. We just ended up using our Google map on the phone and drove there. We never did call back the front desk for anything, we either Googled, Yelped, or asked a person at the park or neighboring restaurants.
The staff was great, the rooms were nice and had everything we needed. The coffee machine and the soaps they provide were't very good, but nothing we couldn't handle. The beds were very comfy. The walk from Disney was close enough to walk, but far enough it was hard for my kids to want to walk back after a long day. Overall we would stay here again and recommend to others.
Loved being so close to the park! The first few days at Disneyland was so hot, it was nice to be within walking distance to come back and rest! Beds were comfy! Staff was very nice!
Perfect Location and Value!
This hotel is perfectly located across the street from Disneyland. The rooms are big, clean and beds are comfy. The rooms are a little dark but that was okay for us. They have a microwave and fridge which was nice and an on-site market/gift shop with food items and souvenirs. There is also a strip mall next to the hotel with a variety of places to eat which were good. I recommend the Subway, Chinese and Pizza place. There is also a 7Eleven and CVS across the street which was convenient. Disneyland was about a 7 min walk for us from the hotel with a child. Not too bad at all. The Gardenwalk was also a short walk from the hotel which had even better dining options and entertainment. I would definitely stay here again. The staff was super nice and accommodating. There was a pool but it rained on our trip so we did not take advantage of this but it looked nice. Parking and WIFI was also free which is hard to find this close to the park.
Great value and location
Our walk to Disneyland was about 15 minutes with an 8 year old. The rooms were clean and service was accomidating. Our first night we had a 3rd floor room but around 11:00 the stomping above us was too much to sleep through so I asked the front desk if they could move us to to floor to avoid this and the were more than happy to do so. The quickly came to our room with a new room key and a luggage cart then proceeded to make sure we were happy with next room. This place was nothing fancy but it was comfortable, close and affordable. I would definitely stay again
The experience with Get Away Today was awesome, but our experience with the hotel could've been a bit better. There was a flood in our bathroom from pipes bursting I believe. Fortunately, nothing got damaged and they changed us to a new room, but it was very inconvenient timing and took about an hour since we had unpacked and all.
Cute little hotel
This was a fun hotel and my kids loved staying in a "real castle." The staff was so much fun and we just loved this hotel so much! It was an easy easy walk to take the kids back in the middle of the day to take a nap.
