Returned for my second stay here. Room wasn't top quality but good and better than some other places stayed and paid more. Staff were friendly. Good location as you will have read, but also we used local buses and stops were all close by. Surprisingly no Disney channel on TV. When leaving room for day (especially if returning before 4pm)...

This hotel ticked all the boxes. Close to Disneyland, right next to a corner store, complimentary breakfast ,iced water in the lobby, great sized family rooms , close to some amazing places to eat like the Cheesecake Factory and non-Disney gift stores. The breakfast was very American, with doughnuts , but nice to have something available to eat each morning....

Although the front desk staff are very nice and extremely helpful we had a poor experience. We were upgraded to a king size pool overlooking the pool. The whole floor stank of vomit and the pipes in the room from the floor above made so much noise that you couldn't hear yourself talk. Yes it's cost effective but to be...

Stayed here the first week of November 2013 with kids between 7-17. We had a Yuha Suite(room 344) the breakfast was sufficient, the rooms clean, staff friendly. The pool area was shaded ALL day long, but the area itself was very nice and clean. The walk is borderline too long to Disneyland, about 15 minutes. There is a 7/11 right...

The hotel location is very good maybe a 5 minute walk to Disneyland or the shuttle picks up and drops off almost in front of the hotel. The shuttle is $5 per adult and $3 per child but that's for all day hop on and off cheaper to buy day ticket from hotel than on the bus per ride. We...
