Free upgrade!
CRAIG P. on 08/22/2017

This was a very nice place to stay for a Disney trip. They upgraded us to family suite at no charge and the room was HUGE! It is a short walk to the gates and lots of places in walking distance for dinner on your way home from the park. The breakfast in the morning was nice so we could have a full stomach before heading into the park. I would stay here again for sure.

Great Hotel/Good Value
Mariah N. on 08/07/2017

The hotel is nicely updated, has a clean and bright centralized pool and hot tub, and provides a great continental breakfast. The breakfast provides some variety each morning and is timed well with Disneyland park hours. We also liked that they have fruit infused water 24 hours a day in the lobby for guests. We would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Would stay again
Jason J. on 03/26/2017

The wifi was intermittently very slow, but otherwise everything was good. Staff was always very helpful. The free breakfast is typical hotel stuff, but they did change the hot food items every day, and kept everything full. Great location for the Disney parks.

Good staff, WiFi is the worst
Ryan M. on 11/21/2016

Overall the hotel was good, but we had a couple issues. We booked the room with the bunk beds because there were 6 of us and that room says it can fit 6. However when we arrived we found out that the couch that folds out to fit two had been removed from all the bunk bed rooms and in order to fit 6 we would have to put 4 on the bunk beds. I don't know about you, but my kids don't like sharing beds. In stead we put two air mattresses on the floor. This used up a ton of floor space and made it difficult to get around in the room. Fortunately we spent most of our time outside of the hotel. In hind sight I would recommend you only put 4 people in the bunk bed rooms, and if you have more, you should book the two queens with the sitting area because that would fit 6 a lot more comfortably. The WiFi in this hotel was probably the worst I have ever experienced. I had to reload web pages several times before they would load and forget about downloading anything, the download would usually get cut off early and I would have to restart. I went to the front desk to see if they could do anything, they said they would reboot the router. I don't know if they did it or not because the WiFi never improved. I ended up having to use my cell phone as a hot spot because the hotel WiFi was so bad. If rebooting the router is the solution I suggest that the hotel automates this by putting a timer on each access point and have the timer turn off the access point for a couple minutes every night. The hotel staff was friendly, I don't have any complaints here. The breakfast was great, and it changed a little every morning. I options we saw were sausage and egg patties (good on a toasted english muffin), biscuits and country gravy (no sausage in gravy, and no sausage on the side to add to the gravy), scrambled eggs with and without sausage, omelets sometimes with cheese, sometimes with sausage. They also had doughnuts most days, and waffles and cold cereal everyday. The scrambled eggs with sausage usually followed the days with sausage and egg patties so I wonder if those were leftovers. The pool and hot tub were enjoyable, but the hot tub was foamy. Probably because people don't shower before getting in and all the soap and shampoo end up in the hot tub. Even though the hotel is near Disneyland there is really no good location to view the fireworks. I wish they had a balcony or something. We had to go up to the 5th floor and hold our hands to the windows in order to see the fireworks. I would stay here again if another hotel was not available, but book a different room, and bring a portable hot spot for WiFi.

Great Location, Friendly Staff
Jessica A. on 11/19/2016

We really enjoyed this hotel! I first chose the 2 queen sofa bed room but decided later to change it to the king bed with kids bunk beds! Changing it was easy and quick! The kids loved the bunk beds, we loved the separate spaces. The room isn't huge but we made it work. We loved being close to Disneyland so we could walk and leave our car so we didn't have to pay for parking twice. The free breakfast was great! The staff was friendly. They would say "hi" or "welcome back' , "have a nice day". Upon check out I left my pillow in our room and the housekeeper ran it down to me from the 4th floor!! Talk about service! The room was clean and nice. The pool and hot tub were a welcome relief from the heat and bustle of park hopping all day! We will definitely recommend this place to others!

Good location
Angela K. on 10/24/2016

The hotel is in a good location; walking distance to Disneyland/California Adventure, restaurants, souvenir shopping and drug stores. The room was clean and comfortable. However, the room only had two small windows and even with all of the lights on it was very dark.

I will book here again.
Anthony L. on 06/04/2016

We were in the L.A. area for a week, but only stayed at the D.P. for two nights, and I should've stayed here for all 6. They were having some new renovations done, which was not a problem. We got a new renovated room, which was nice. Good job on the work. I like the fact that there was a sofa bed in the room since there were 5 of us. Customer service was great. Breakfast was ok. Could be better, but it was free so can't complain. A free anything is good. I would give 5 stars, but there is always room for improvement.

Excellent value for families!
DOROTHY T. on 05/26/2016

We stayed here for a week - all six of us - and I would highly recommend it. The only down side was that the suite we were in was slated for remodel....the day we left. If that had happened before we arrived, it would have made this a 5/5 review. We had the Sahara Kitchen suite and so were able to cook our own meals and have snacks to take to the park. The complimentary, full breakfast was a lifesaver - freshly made and changed up daily. There were eggs, bagels, fruit, yoghurt, do-it-yourself waffles, toast, doughnuts, juice and more. The walk was about 10 minute...depending how exhausted we were. All in all, we would definitely recommend this hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff and more.

Very friendly staff!!
JOSH P. on 04/03/2016

We recently stayed at this property for our family spring break vacation and couldn't have been more pleased with everything. The staff was more than willing to help with anything we needed. The rooms were very nice and cleaned when we returned back every night. The breakfast was a great time and money saver every morning before our day at Disneyland. Location is perfect for young family's who want to come back for a break midday to relax before going back for the nighttime festivities in the park, just a short 8-10 minute walk to the front gate..... We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the happiest place on earth!!!

Loved it!
Regina G. on 03/31/2016

Hotel was clean and staff was great! The morning breakfast was Delicious! The food from the downstairs cafe was awful and elevators were a little scary but my family and I still enjoyed our stay!

I should have booked the Marriott like I had planned to.
Carey O. on 03/21/2016

Pros: - The location is good, we walked to Disney every day - It is close to food outside the park (Coffee shop across the street, pizza and Subway across the street, nearby Walgreens, and CPK and Cheesecake Factory are a block away) Cons: - We were convinced by the Getaway today agent to book this hotel for a little less than one of the near by Marriott Suites hotel for the "Kids Suite". It was so small and we had no room to put our suitcases down. - Hotel 'free' breakfast was terrible. Even my 8 YO hated it. - Hotel restaurant was OK - Our room was very dated / In need of a refresh You pay for what you get!

Cheap, clean motel close to Disneyland
Jodi N. on 02/04/2016

The best thing about this motel is that it's so close to Disneyland that you can walk. Our room was comfortable, but the walls were thin and our room was loud. The pool was also really small. The room was clean and we liked the free breakfast. We ate outside on the deck and could see California Adventure. The hotel had activities for kids, and my boys liked looking for the hidden Mickey.
