Accommodations Review:

BIG & SPACIOUS. We had the wing by the freeway and it seemed like a new wing. Although it overlooked the pool and was close to the freeway, with the doors closed and A/C on, it was quiet. There was a coffeemaker and refrigerator in the room too. This came in very handy for leftovers and chilling drinks. We had 10 people in the room (friends) who visited at one point and it didn't seem cramped even with the luggage on the floor. This place it bigger than most hotels at comparable prices. Washer and dryer on each floor which made it easy to pack less and just wash & dry at midpoint to wear our clothes again. Parking may have been a problem. After checking in, park your car by the entrance doors of the wing your room is in, unload, then zip your car into a stall. Most times there were lots of parking, but late nights, the parking gets tighter and the walk may be further away. They have the space to really make an efficient parking lot but they just use the perimeter. You really can't beat the value of what you are getting vs. what you are paying.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$45/night (entertainment book), $65 AAA, normal $89-$115

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Cocos on premises. Friend who tried it said it was good. They wouldn't let us use the microwave oven to heat up leftovers. Lots of restaurants along the way.

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

Pool Description/Comments:

2 pools. One large, one medium size but water seemed heated.

Other Comments:

Seven minute walk to the entrance of Disneyland. Viewed other hotels in the area and for the price, nothing was more spacious. Easy access to freeways, Easy to find. Would return again. Everyone we recommended this place to enjoyed their stay.
