Not for light sleepers
Do not stay here if you have a hard time with noises and sleeping at night. The walls are paper thin and the doors slam. The lobby has a very strong perfume smell that was not enjoyable.
Great staff, wonderful security as well. Beds were just ok, but comfy enough after a long day at Disney. The bathroom was small and the hot water handle was stuck the whole time, and the balcony handle broke off when we barely touched it. Lol. But they did come fix the handle and we enjoyed the balcony view of the fireworks every evening. Clean and the housekeeping staff was excellent!
Love this hotel. It's close to Disney. The rooms are clean. The staff are wonderful and helpful.
Great access to California Adventure
A nice hotel for the money paid. It is just across the street from the entrance to Disneyland and California Adventure which makes it nice to not worry about paying for parking. The staff was friendly even during the busy holiday season. There is also a nice pizza place right next door to the hotel which was great for a meal or late night snack.
Such a good choice
The room was clean and well kept. The bar in the lobby had great pricing and really nice staff. The hotel staff was helpful and welcoming.
This hotel has a great lobby, restaurant, and pool. The rooms are older but decently clean. Parking is $15 a night which is outrageous for hotel guests. Parking should be free for at least one car. Overall we would probably not stay here again unless the price of the rooms decreased.
Very friendly staff, short walk to and from Disneyland Parks. Target was very close by. Very clean and overall fun feeling hotel. Loved the retro look and design. Awesome that the Pizza Press is located in the hotel lobby for a quick dinner on the way to our room!
Love the location
This hotel was literally across the street. We could view the fireworks show from the pool area of the hotel. The hotel has gone through a nice remodel and the throw back 50's vibe is refreshing. All staff are courteous and most helpful. Rooms clean and beds comfy and they do offer room service at a very reasonable rate. Pool was outstanding and made for a nice relax day. They have an onsite eatery - Pizza Press that does offer breakfast which was WONDERFUL and at great prices.
Not like the photos
The room we received did not look anything like the picture. It had Full beds not Queen, no microwave, the water pressure in the shower was not more than a trickle, the carpet was stained and there was no extra room for a rollaway bed.
Will always return!
This hotel gets a 10/10 for me! The location can't be beat, the rooms were clean and the staff were above and beyond the most friendly and helpful of any hotel I have stayed at in the area. The gift shop is well stocked and has a variety of cute, inexpensive souvenirs. With a mini fridge and microwave (you can request one at no charge), I didn't miss the fact that there wasn't a breakfast included. There are several eating options very close. The walk to the parks is quick and painless. There is a Walgreens and CVS pharmacy just a quick 5 minute walk away if you need more supplies. The pool and hot tub were well maintained. This is going to become my new go-to hotel!
It’s a great hotel. Comes with a community feel. Great for families. Friendly staff. It was great!
The location was super nice, but it would be nice if there were some amenities such as free parking, or some sort of breakfast. Even just a continental, or coffee in the lobby
Stayed here by accident and was absolutely impressed. The rooms were a decent size and very clean. The hotel staff was very friendly. The pizza press had pretty good food!
Looks like they spent a lot remodeling the lobby, it's very nice. The rooms are average, a little small but clean.
This hotel had it all. Room service Huge pool Nice lobby Friendly staff Full bar Great pizza place And wonderful beds.
Great customer service.
Pros...The rooms were clean and customer service was great. I loved the private patio area of out ground level room. Cons...The lobby was scented very heavily with a cologne/perfume scent. It gave me a headache. The layout of our two queen bed room was not ideal, the position of the air conditioner didn’t do much to cool the room as it was about 6 inches from the side of the bed and the air either blew against the side of the bed or straight up into the curtains.
The hotel was a little bit older, but the location was ideal. The kids loved the olympic-sized pool and jacuzzi. The pizza restaurant on the premises was very good and open late.
We stay here every time!
We love this hotel we stay every time we go to Disneyland. It is always clean and having the pizza press downstairs is a great plus. The pool is great and large enough for everyone to have their own space. Check in is always easy and even upon early arrival we were able to check in early to get our vacation started.
Clean and close to the park
Close to the park. If you're just looking for a place to sleep it's just fine. The rooms aren't especially nice, but they are clean. Our main issues were: the shower never got warm and the AC didn't work.
Great pool, friendly staff and close to Disneyland. The beds were not great but everything else made it a great value.
I was very impressed with this hotel the room was great staff was so friendly and helpful the gift shop was LARGE and there is a hotel bar although the hours are confusing its nice to have one right there! Also there is a pizza restaurant attached we didnt eat there but will be doing so next time! Pool was large and clean and perfect walking distance!
Comfy & Clean
Very nice, helpful staff! Very comfy beds and clean rooms! The pool was awesome!
We loved this hotel. It wasn't across the street, which allowed us to escape the business around the entrance gates. We didn't mind the walk, and still felt that we were included in all the fun. This hotel was great, we were taken care of every minute.
Cute Hotel Straight From the 70's
I loved the cute 70's theme throughout the hotel, the colorful lobby and courtyards were so enjoyable. We loved being so close to the park, it wasn't more than a 10 minute walk. The shuttle service was great, we used it the last day since our feet were extra tired. Great stay, and great value.
We just returned from staying at this hotel. We enjoyed staying here and would stay again. The only drawback we had was the cleaning service for our room was later in the afternoon when we were resting so our room didn't get cleaned.
Older, but decent
We were very excited to stay at this hotel for their fun looking courtyards and very affordable pricing. The hotel was decent, the rooms were a little old and outdated, but met our needs. We were a little disappointed when we realized that the pool wasn't open the entire duration of our stay, but I'm sure if it were we would have loved it. We loved the Pizza Press, it was practically in the lobby and was extremely delicious!
We stayed here last week (May 2019) and my husband and I loved it! So close too Disney. The bar and pizza was amazing and had great hours for after the park. The beds are so comfy, the pool is amazing.
Great stay for Disney trip
My family and I stayed here for 4 nights for a Disneyland vacation. The price and location were unbeatable when we booked. We were able to check in on time. Our room was clean. No problems with hot water. We could even see the fireworks at Disneyland from our patio. It was literally across the street (5min walk) from the parks. Had breakfast and dinner at the Pizza Press, both good. Staff seemed friendly. We had to visit concierge 3 times because our room keys kept acting up. They would work one minute then stop working all of a sudden. Also, on our first night we got a call from the front desk. The people under us complained that we were making too much noise I guess. But, our kids are 2 and 4 and this was their first vacation so they were jumping all around the room with excitement. So, my sympathy for the people under is was extremely scant. Overall, we will definitely stay here again on our next Disneyland trip.
Newly remodeled room
We got a newly remodeled room on 2nd floor, which is their highest level. The shower water pressure was outstanding and the hot water was plentiful. Carpet was clean and vacuumed. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and we checked for bed-bugs. None! The room was quiet. We felt safe and secure. We did have a light bulb go out and the Maintenance was knocking within 2 minutes. We did complain that the scale wasn’t working and needed new batteries, but no one ever showed up for that. I noticed several other rooms had actually set their scales outside of their doors. I do not know if the guests did that or housekeeping. Maybe my call generated maintenance to replace all of the batteries and get them working. What good is a scale if it doesn’t work. The mini fridge was warm when we first arrived, but got cold after a day or so. Wish there was a tiny freezer in it. Overall, it was a wonderful hotel and we are glad we stayed there.
We tipped the front desk person $20 and were given an upgrade. Room # 746 is OUTSTANDING! Recently remodeled & upgraded! Two Queen Beds. Extra-strong water pressure, perfect hot water, new beds/mattresses, no bugs, quiet, second (highest) level. Housekeeping was fabulous! We felt safe and secure. We usually stay at Tropicana and this was LESS-THAN-HALF their price! The Anaheim is our new go-to hotel for Disneyland trips.
We have stayed here a few times now and look for this hotel every time we book a trip. So close to the parks and very nice friendly customer service.
Great customer services
The hotel was nice, beds are a little on the soft side, close proximity to the parks (few minutes walking), within walking distance to the Garden walk which has great options for dining. The customer service was great. When we arrived to the hotel, the gentleman outside informed me since we have a handicap placard the parking was free. He walked into the hotel with us to make sure the front desk was aware not to charge us for parking. The pizza press on site had really good pizza and was super fast. We also ordered room service one night from the front room bar. They did not answer their line so the front desk walked over to them and had them call our room for us to place our order. Two minor issues: water temperature was not consistant. It would go from a nice temp to either scolding hot or freezing cold (when bathing a child, would recommend constantly check temp). Reserved two standard queen beds but when we got to the room, we were given two double beds. We made it work, but when your spouse is 6 ft and you have your 5 year old sleeping in the bed with you, it was a little tight. Our 2 teens slept in the other bed just fine. Over all, nice place. Would stay there again.
Very nice and very convenient
Great hotel - super close to Disneyland, large rooms, and very clean. Hotel was quiet, and had a beautiful pool. Pizza restaurant on property was open late for midnight dinners after park closed. Staff was very nice and parking was convenient. Could not ask for anything else!
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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).
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
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.
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.
Nice hotell,staff was nice the price is great not too far a walk from Disneyland.
Friendly Staff/Close to Disneyland
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!
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.
