Very friendly and helpful drivers. A note for those with limited walking abilities, however - the bus area is still a distance from the front gate and wheelchair rental station inside. It's too bad they can't come up closer to drop people off right in front.

Accommodations Review:

This was a lovely place, more like a small, more personal hotel than a motel, with a concierge, beautiful lobby, etc. We were hoping to stay at the Candy Cane Inn, after hearing so many positive reviews, but had to choose another place since the Candy Cane was booked - we were not disappointed.

Our room was very nice, spacious and comfortable. The vanity area separate from the bathroom was a nice touch (even though the bathroom itself was quite tiny), as were the in-room coffeemaker and the safe deposit box at the front desk. The staff was very helpful and friendly in answering any questions we had. Oh, and the sofa was incredibly comfortable to sit back and relax on at the end of a busy day!

Rate/Night (for your stay):

We had a package deal (hotel/Disneyland passes), I'd guess in the $90 range for the hotel.

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

2

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

We ordered room service dinner from Millie's on our first night. The service was good, but the food was just so-so. The lunch we ate there as we waited for our airport bus was better. The snack shop Cafasia, on the 3rd floor, is a nice place to grab a quick snack.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Hair Dryer, Laundry,         Concierge, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors. 

Pool Description/Comments:

We didn't use the pool, but it looked very clean and nice, although quite small in relation to the number of rooms. My husband checked out the hot tub and said the same thing, that it was nice, but very small.

Other Comments:

Our only problem was upon leaving for home. We made reservations with the concierge for our airport shuttle, but apparently the bus company heard "Marriott" and went to another Marriott hotel, leaving us waiting for an hour before a bus finally came. Thankfully I planned to get to the airport well-ahead of schedule, so we still got there half an hour before our flight! Whew! : ) But other than that, it was a very pleasant stay, and although I definitely want to stay at the Candy Cane Inn next time, I certainly would be very happy to stay here again in the future.
