Pool Description/Comments:

Just your basic small pool. Saw plenty of kids in it.

Other Comments:

I expected more for some reason, but you get what you pay for. $39 is about right but I didn't have coupons so paid $49. Had to switch room 2 times for various reasons.

Continental Breakfast was minimal, OJ was empty both days, and it's Only 1 small Sweet roll or muffin allowed. Coffee, Milk and Cereal was available, as was toast.

The freeway noise wasn't bad in the inside of complex room. You really can't fault the place, especially with the Shuttle service*. I went back to the room mid-day, had a beer, showered and relaxed, then returned for evening of DCA lights. (*Twice our shuttle was leaving Disney and they saw someone flag it and pulled over to wait!)

Don't know if Pets are official, but I saw some people walking pets in the parking lot. Bring a travel alarm, no clocks, except on the TV. Airport, The Big Orange Block and Buena Park Mall shuttles came by. There is a small video arcade for kids, and TV has HBO and Disney.

Located behind the upteen story Fairfield Inn with I-5 and Airport Transportation Center on the other sides. HoJo's is on the other side of Transport Center.
