Accommodations Review:

What an incredible experience! The hotel is located at the corner of Ball and Harbor across the freeway from Disneyland. A quick word of advice, join Holiday Inn's Priority Club, at this hotel you get many benefits. I checked-in at 2:30pm. My benefits for being a priority club member were 2 free breakfast coupons ($6 value each), a free drink at the bar, special parking, late check-out (2PM) and a morning paper. I tried to get the Priority Club automatic suite upgrade (you get upgraded to a suite if it is available, no extra charge), but none of the 2 suites were available. The room was similar to a mini-suite at most other hotels consisting of a living room (with couch, chair and table) on one side of the half-room divider. On the other side, a king size bed, desk and television w/remote. The room had a coffee maker (I had room service bring up fresh cream), hairdryer, iron, ironing board, clock radio and TV. It was very clean. Pay per view movies and video games were also available. Each floor had an ice machine and vending machines. There was laundry facilities as well as a video game room. In the hotel was a tour operator, an ATM and a sundries/gift shop. One of the coolest part of the stay is that you can see into Disneyland from this hotel. At night, I watched the Believe fireworks from the top (5th) floor. They were so close as you are right across the I-5.

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Poppy's the restaurant is fine as far as Holiday Inn restaurants go. I had room service the first night there. I ordered the baby back ribs and chicken combo. It arrived quickly with a salad. The salad was nicely done, not just iceberg lettuce and some dressing. This salad had cheese, bacon bits, croutons, tomatoes, greens and onions. It arrived very quickly. For breakfast (using my $6 coupon), was very nice. The only drawback was the hours of the bar which opened at 5pm and was pretty stingy on the portions.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

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

Pool Description/Comments:

The pool facilities were wonderful! Set in a tropical garden like setting with a children's fountain, large pool, plenty of tables and lounges, hot tub and outdoor showers. Fresh towels are available poolside.

Other Comments:

There is a Taco Bell across the street and two gas station right next door. One of the gas stations has an AM/PM.
