Accommodations Review:

Rooms were very nicely furnished but a bit too crowded. Our family travels with five people who don't pack light. Storing suitcases, blankets, pillows, etc. is difficult. The fluffy pillows and duvets are plus for comfort after a long day at Disneyland. The sink is separate from the bathroom which causes many collisions when people come out of the shower past the sink. There is a table which is large enough to read a newspaper and set down a coffee for two people. The air conditioner is very efficient and can make the room freezing cold. Makes me feel like I am at home in Canada. (It is not that cold in Vancouver) We had the shutters closed all the time because there are people constantly walking by who glance in. The ice and pop machines are located at the center of each wing of the building. The property is absolutely beautiful and very well landscaped which gave me the feeling of being in a tropical paradise. Kept the pool area shaded and comfortable. The maids were excellent and did a complete job.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

74.00 US with AAA discount

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

0

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

The hotel provides an excellent complimentary continental breakfast with a variety of items. There are lots of muffins and pastries, etc. The continental breakfast is open from 7-10 AM which is good for guests wanting to get to the parks early.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Hair Dryer, Laundry,  Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

Pool was heated to a very warm temperature and refreshing on a hot day. We would return to the hotel for the afternoon for a rest and hang around in the pool area. From this time till closing the pool is packed with loud kids who kick and splash. The hot tub is under a gazebo and is never crowded. We would take a cooler of ice cold Pepsi and some chips to the pool and kick back and relax.

Other Comments:

This property was the most visually appealing around Disneyland. I highly recommend the Candy Cane Inn for a trip to the parks over any of the other hotels in the area. (With exception to the Disney Hotels if you are willing to splurge).

The hotel is located on the Disneyland side of Harbor so you don't have to cross the street. In the morning when the temperature is nice, you can walk there and take your time before the park opens. It is about a 9 minute walk. We thought, considering the Canadian exchange rate, that what we paid was reasonable and we were very impressed with the facility. We are actually returning to Disneyland this August and have already booked with the Candy Cane Inn for the same rate. The picture in the AAA Tourbook doesn't lie.
