The staff were very helpful, as it was our first time to the US. They offered many suggestions of things we could do...

We stayed for 10 nights and couldn't fault the location or value. Plenty of parking and handy little shop for little necessities. Rooms were a good size and although the decor wasn't the fanciest, it certainly was comfortable. Noise was never an issue.

This hotel is such a great value. It is clean and well appointed and is within walking distance of Disneyland park. This was the second time I have stayed here and was very pleased again. I will stay here again and will recommend it to friends.
