Accommodations Review:

I'm surprised that no one mentioned in the previous reviews that this place uses standard-length beds. If you're at least 5'7" and sleep flat on your back, you feet will likely stick out. Maybe the sizes are optimized for the children? Maybe they want you to feel like an NBA star? ;-) The mattresses were also of the "less-support" variety and the springs tended to creak when you moved. If you're lucky enough to get a "courtyard" view room, you'll get the noise from the pool, the noise from Harbor Blvd, and a great view of the fireworks. Otherwise, you get a great view of the highway and the noise from the highway. Unlike other Fairfield Inns, this one does not serve free continental breakfast. They've instead substituted a snack shop on the third floor. At least there's a diner ("Millie's") and McDonalds next door (both of which offer room service for a minimum-charge order). The rooms are at least new(er) and seem roomier but that's partly because of the smaller beds. I thought that the Candy Cane was a tad more cramped but I was thankful for the extended-sized beds. The plus was that it was a shorter walk to the pedestrian entrance to the park. If you're a good walker, this isn't a big factor. Amenities were clean and room service was prompt and efficient. A small fridge was included in the room. At other motels, you sometimes have to pay extra for that.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$63 (AAA discounted off-season rate)

1

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Small snack shop.

Pool, Laundry, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers

Pool Description/Comments:

Didn't use the pool. Kind of small. Somewhat visible from outside the grounds.

Other Comments:

If you want good beds, try the Candy Cane Inn. If you want good beds and silence, you may have to pay the premium for the Disneyland Hotel.
