Accommodations Review:

The room we stayed in was nice. Two queen beds, cable TV, separate bath and vanity (nice in the morning when people are getting ready to go) and fridge. Hot water with good shower water pressure. Cute wakeup call with Disney music and on time! The complex was quiet-although the stairs were a little noisy with kids running back and forth-but that was only when everyone was "powering up" for their day in the park!

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$79-85.00/night They do offer packages with Disney Vacations and through the hotel. I used my Magic Kingdom Club card and got a great deal on 3 nights with shuttle transfers from LAX and 5 day flex passports.

Pool Description/Comments:

Nice, smaller sized pool with garden-like surroundings. Sitting in the hot tub after a long day at the park was a treat and very relaxing.

Other Comments:

My fiancé and I really enjoyed this hotel! It is smaller, but has a wonderful gardenlike atmosphere surrounding it. The pool area (with hot tub) is in the center of the complex and also has wonderful plants and flowers all around. The big surprise about this hotel was the complimentary breakfast-something we had heard about on the web...It is amazing! Not your standard sweet roll and coffee-but bagels, fresh fruit, dry cereals, oatmeal, juice, milk, and croissants. It is served in their breakfast room next to the pool area. They set up tables in the pool area for eating. It not only saved us money on a meal, but it gave us a healthy start to a busy day in the park. We often took some fruit with us or left some in the room's fridge for later. Our advice-get there early, it gets busy as the morning goes on...

I regret that when my mom and I went last November (1998), it was already booked up (in August)! We stayed in the disappointing Carousel Inn and Suites .

My fiancé and I like the Candy Cane so much, we're staying there again in November for our 1999 trip! We chose this hotel over Howard Johnsons's, The Carousel Inn and Suites, and all the Best Western hotels! In fact, next to the DL hotel, this is the only place we'll stay!

Candy Cane Inn is a nice hotel with great complimentary breakfast-we love it's beautiful plants and small unrushed feel. We almost forgot we were in the middle of Anaheim during construction, which is a feat in itself! The short walk to DL was nice and easy to do-even after a long day of walking. The staff was helpful and polite. This hotel, to me, is like staying somewhere out of New Orleans. Lots of wrought iron and delicate flower baskets, plus plants anywhere there isn't concrete (nice for So. Cal).
