Great Location
Abbey M. on 12/03/2018

We stayed here a few years back before the renovation. It was a great deal at the time! The location is why we stayed again and a decent price through GetAwayToday. Rooms were updated, nothing fancy but comfortable and clean. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the water temperature in the shower was incosistent, it kept fluctuating from hot to cold, but the pressure was ok. Expensive parking fee so we decided not to rent a car. We ate from the to-go breakfast menu and the breakfast burrito was fresh and delicious. We also ate at the Pizza Press one evening and everything was great. We knew we were basically paying for the proximity to the Disneyland gates and it was worth the short walk. We would definitely stay again.

Fun Retro Hotel
Traci J. on 10/22/2018

Loved the retro theme of this original hotel. Felt like we walked into classic Disneyland. Thought the story was cool how they built an olympic sized swimming pool just in case Disneyland was a flop. The rooms are simple, we were on the ground level and had a walk out patio which added some nice space. The grounds were well manicured. The pizza shop in house was delicious and had a great family special. The walk was easy. Also, loved the Creamistry Ice Cream shop down the block. Would stay here again.

great hotel
Martin D. on 10/16/2018

I love this hotel & the bartender.We have stayed at this hotel the last 2 times we have been to Disneyland and its my all time fave, nothing special but close to Disneyland you can even see the fireworks from the pool.The only thing that did suck was we did have people try to get in our room maybe they got confused? we scared them away. But like I said I loved this hotel.

Value and Retro Theme
Melissa L. on 04/03/2018

This fantastic motel is easy walking distance to Disneyland. The grounds are large and lush and beautifully maintained. There are several two story buildings with exterior corridors - no elevators, but there are ramps to the second floor. The rooms are large and most seem to have either a patio or balcony. Our room was recently renovated and clean. It is still an older property with creaky floors, aluminum edged windows, and some noisy plumbing. Also, the water pressure is low, but the hot water plentiful. Our room had a mini coffee-maker, better than average hair dryer, mini-fridge, TV, clock radio, nightlight, etc. The toiletries were Hawaiian Tropic and included bars of soap, shampoo, condition, and shower gel but NO lotion. The beds were reasonably comfortable and the pillows full and adjustable. The staff were fantastic -friendly and helpful. When we needed extra blankets or a microwave, they were quickly delivered to our room. They also surprised me with a card and chocolate cookies for my birthday :-) We will stay here again!

Staff very rude
Regina A. on 03/25/2018

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it’s close to Disneyland. The staff is very rude, we were locked out of our room 3 times!! They’re excuse was the sensor on the doors was out even after they claimed to fix it the first time. When we returned to our rooms they were not cleaned. I called the front desk for room service, after 2 hours had to call again since they weren’t there yet. The microwave was dirty. I will NEVER stay here again.

staff was great
Anastasia C. on 03/11/2018

Room was nice and clean with plenty of room for 5 of us and a roll away bed. Staff helped us with everything and went above and beyond in most cases. Room service was quick and spot on.All in all we stayed for 5 days and had a fantastic time.

Rooms were nice
JAMIE R. on 02/14/2018

Rooms were decent size and clean. Staff is the reason we will not stay here again. They overcharged my card multiple times and when we questioned it, the responses were curt and rude.

Pros & Cons
ANDREA S. on 01/24/2018

My husband, two young children, and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights this past weekend. There were some good things and some not so good things about it. Pros: Mattresses and bedding are super comfortable Close to Disneyland Pizza Press, which is attached, is really good Pretty clean (our room hadn't been vacuumed, and the microwave was dirty, but everything else was pretty clean) Cons: You have to request a microwave. They don't just have them in there. The one they brought was SUPER old and junky. We had to go on a wild goose hunt to find an ice machine. The people at the front desk were unaware that there wasn't an ice machine in our building OR the building next to us. When we booked, GAT had either one king or two queens available. When we checked in, they booked us into a room with two doubles. I had to pull up my email to "prove" to them that I was supposed to get two queens. They did switch us to a room with two queens, but seemed irritated about it. When I was washing my kids' sippy cups, there was a huge pool of sudsy water at my feet. The sink was leaking underneath. We didn't notice this when we washed our hands or brushed our teeth- only when we used a little more than average water. The doorway wasn't wide enough to fit our double stroller through. We've stayed at several hotels and this is the first time we had that problem. The rooms are pretty small. We were used to staying at the Castle Inn & Suites (next door), which are MUCH roomier. Our remote control didn't work. I didn't tell them this until I checked out, and I'm sure they would have fixed it, but we didn't discover it until we were getting all packed up and ready to check out. We wanted to turn the tv on to entertain our kids while we cleaned up, but couldn't. We couldn't manually change the channels on the tv, either. When I mentioned to the front desk about some of the issues we had, they were totally unapologetic. I was very kind when I mentioned everything, thinking that possibly they might refund our parking charge, or something. Nope... the lady at the front desk didn't care at all about the issues. (I mentioned the puddle of water, non-working remote, lack of ice machine after being told to check two different places from the front desk, and the fact that our room hadn't been vacuumed before we got there). In fact, when I commented about the ice machines, nobody at the front desk knew that there weren't machines in either building I had looked in. So, nobody in the front seems to know where the ice machines are! It was a little strange. The lady said, "I'll tell maintenance about your concerns." Also, we checked out at about 8:30 a.m., but our flight didn't leave until the afternoon, so we wanted to keep our car parked there until about 1:00 pm. We were told that it had to be out of the parking lot by 11, or we could pay an extra $12 to park there for an extra 2 hours. After I mentioned our concerns, the lady reluctantly allowed me to keep our car there. So, I did get an extra two hours of parking for free in their lot for all our trouble! :) (And actually, that was only because I told her we were coming back to the Pizza Press for lunch!) Overall, we were not impressed. Luckily, we didn't plan to spend too much time at the hotel. The location was nice, but we will stay elsewhere next time (probably back at the Castle Inn & Suites).

Great hotel!!!
Jenna R. on 01/17/2018

My family and I loved this hotel, it’s a five minute walk to Disneyland. The rooms were clean and updated, the beds were cozy, the pizza place was great! We definitely plan to stay here again!

Great Value/ Location
Russell O. on 01/10/2018

This is a great place to stay. They have just done several renovations, the room was clean, spacious, and so close to the park. We had a standard queen suite which included a very nice enclosed patio section. Very useful for storing all the gear that accompanies a family of our size. We ate at the new Pizza Press restaurant that is in the hotel, and I loved it. Great Pizza great price. There was no breakfast included, but there was plenty of room on the patio for our morning meal. We have stayed here before, and it is easy to see the new owners are bringing the quality of the hotel up to higher standards. Once again. Can't beat the location, beds were great, Plenty of room, great patio on ground floor rooms, large pool, Very friendly and helpful staff. For a great price.

Great stay
Carolyn N. on 10/16/2017

Our stay was great! We were a little wary because of some of the reviews. But we were very pleased with our stay. The staff was more then friendly and accommodating. The pizza press has great pizza and breakfast. Everything was very clean and comfortable! If there was anything negative to say it would be that there aren't microwaves in the room. Pretty small problem! We will be staying there next time we go to Disney. Super easy walk even with two small kids.

Small rooms
Lynnette N. on 10/16/2017

I was not impressed. The rooms were small and hot, had a little A/C cooler in the window the bottom corner. It didn't cool the room very well. Our room didn't get cleaned one day. Another day they left the sliding door unlocked. This room was supposedly for five people no extra bed no room for an extra bed. Big spiders outside the doors. I have not stayed here before and will not stay here again.

Friendly Staff/Close to Disneyland
Michele B. on 09/20/2017

We love staying at this hotel. The pricing is reasonable and it's walking distance to Disneyland. The staff is always friendly and helpful as well. They are currently updating the building since it is a little older, but we didn't hear any noise from the construction.

Upgraded Lobby but rooms are overdue!
Jennifer N. on 06/13/2017

The lobby was a hip place to hang around and thank goodness because we arrived early and our room wasn't ready for hours! I did the pre-check in and was promised they would call if our room was ready early. Four and a half hours later I went up to the courtesy desk to see if anything has changed and they said it was ready but they had no calling process to notify guests. Strike one. We arrive to our room and the AC unit is tucked between the sliding glass door to the patio and one of the beds. IN this location, it was impossible to circulate cool air in the room. In fact, it was difficult to get to just to turn on between the bed and the curtains for the door. Then when night came one guest in the bed closest was freezing while the other in the other bed was baking. Strike Two. Finally we end our stay and my son accidentally left behind his portable night light and two toys. I check their site and they have a lost and found system- fantastic! I enter in the information and wait to hear back via email or phone and get crickets. A week passes by so I email the hotel directly in case they no longer use this system. I wait a few more days and get a call finally saying yes we have your items sorry I was on vacation and no one else does that while I'm away! What's the point of a lost and found system if it isn't managed? Then she told me I've sent you an email on how to claim your items you can follow those instructions. She didn't give me any additional info over the phone. So I check my email and see to mail them back is a $20 fee! Okay not the hotel's fault but I work in a customer oriented business and know many hotels will eat the fee as good PR and after waiting about 2 weeks just to hear from someone, I kind of expected it. Strike Three! Between all these items, large cockroaches outside of the hotel rooms (literally as soon as we stepped out of door), a fairly large spider in our room and requesting a crib then receiving one (again with a nightly fee whereas any other hotel I've been at has not charged us) that looked to be as old as I am. I will say when we asked to have them take back the crib, they did so and reversed the charge. This happened at the same time someone was out to look at our cable that happened to be on the fritz as well. Surprise, surprise we will not be returning. I'm really rather disappointed as everywhere else I've stayed in the good neighbor hotels have been nothing but pleasant.
