Disneyland Resort
The Anaheim Hotel Review
March 11, 2024

Are you looking for a value hotel near Disneyland Resort? We love helping families get to Disneyland Resort and understand that staying on budget is everything.

Along with exploring all that Orange County has to offer, including Disneyland Resort, Get Away Today does it all like riding the coasters at Knott’s Berry Farm, “powering up” at Universal Studios Hollywood, and strolling through the Downtown Disney entertainment district. With so much to learn and take in—narrowing down a hotel can be a tough decision.

Luckily for you, our entire team visited The Anaheim Hotel during our tours in February 2024. We have the entire scoop for you here.

Keeping your budget in mind, we group our hotel listings into three categories:
  1. Deluxe Property
  2. Moderate Property
  3. Value Property

If you have been to Disneyland recently, you may have noticed this retro looking two story hotel just across the street. The hotel has a lot of history and was one of the first to be built in the area. It underwent a major renovation in the last few years.

Anaheim Hotel Rooms

There are two room types at The Anaheim Hotel which we think you’ll really love. Choose from a two Queen room or a two King room. We love the ability to have two Kings in one room which gives you a bit more space and really makes you feel that vacation vibe.

All of the rooms have crisp, white linens and pillow top mattresses. All of the guest rooms also have views overlooking the hotel grounds. Many of the guest rooms also have a patio or balcony.

Guestrooms at The Anaheim Hotel also come with the standard hotel amenities that you expect like a coffee maker and Wi-Fi. The rooms also come with a mini refrigerator. While the rooms don't all come with a microwave, the hotel does have some available on a request basis. The Anaheim Hotel also offers some pet friendly rooms available for an additional charge.

Anaheim Hotel Pools & Dining

The Anaheim Hotel features some pretty awesome amenities that you may not expect from a value hotel near Disneyland. For one, it is built on nine acres of beautifully manicured gardens. And, as we already pointed out in the rooms section of the review, all rooms come with a view of the grounds.

Additionally, The Anaheim Hotel has an Olympic-sized swimming pool and an award winning restaurant, The Pizza Press on site. The hotel also features an expansive lobby with a bar, an on-site gym and a small business center.

There are two dining locations at The Anaheim Hotel, The Front Room Lounge and the Pizza Press. The Front Room Lounge serves gastropub cuisine and a full bar. You'll find local brews, cocktails and wines.This location also offers room service and poolside service seasonally. And best of all, the Front Room Lounge hosts Happy Hour from 2-5pm daily. It's the perfect break from Disneyland so you can go back recharged for the nighttime parades and fireworks.

The award winning Pizza Press restaurant brings in many non-hotel guests; it's that good. The food is unique, affordable, and most importantly, delicious. The restaurant is decked out in a 1920s newspaper theme and guests can choose from popular menu items or choose to "publish" their own creation. Their gourmet pizzas and salads may have you coming back every night of your stay.

Not only is the pool Olympic-sized, it features plenty of lounge chairs, umbrellas, and during the summer, even pool service from the bar. The pool itself is also heated year-round, and there's a good sized hot tub. It's a hit with families looking for a good pool area.

In addition to being a fantastic pool area, the pool itself has a fun story. When Disneyland was first being built over 60 years ago, hotels started to be developed as well. The owner at the time wasn't so sure if this whole Disneyland Park thing was going to make it.

So, to make his hotel appealing and stand the test of time, he decided to add an Olympic-sized swimming pool. He figured that way people would still come to stay at his hotel, even if Disneyland ended up being a flop. Luckily for all of us, Disneyland is bigger and better than ever, and The Anaheim Hotel is still around as well.

Book Your Stay at Anaheim Hotel

Our most popular package for Disneyland Resort vacations comes with your hotel stay and 3 day park hopper tickets. That way you can explore both theme parks and have extra time to see and do all those extra favorites like shows, entertainment and popular rides.

Overall, the thing that sets The Anaheim Hotel apart from so many other hotels along Harbor Boulevard is the value. You'll be hard pressed to find another hotel with so much to offer as far as amenities go.

Again, it's not high-end, but in our opinion, that's a huge plus! The prices are reasonable, and if you can get one of our exclusive 4th night free specials, it's an even better deal. If you're looking for a clean, convenient location with conveniences without the frills, you'll love The Anaheim Hotel.

Katie- We're so glad to hear you had a wonderful stay at the Anaheim Hotel. We always appreciate feedback on our travel partners.

We just got back from staying 6 nights in one of their rooms with 2 king beds! We loved it and can’t wait to stay there again! It was such a nice break to walk back to our hotel each day in the middle of the day from Disneyland for a little break! We loved the pool and had drinks and food poolside! Frank Sinatra played in the very nice lobby and by the pool! Can’t wait to go back!

Anonymous - We are so sorry to hear that! Please reach out to our Customer Service team at 855-GET-AWAY so we can help you immediately.

This hotel is horrible! We have two more nights left and wish we would have stayed somewhere else!
