"mosquitoes and gnat problems"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 21, 2017 NEW
i think this has got to be the worst experience ever. We spent the weekend here to celebrate my daughter and sister's birthdays. This is also my parents and sister first time staying at this hotel after me raving about how nice the hotel is! we didn't get our hotel until 4pm which i thought was a bit later than usual. My daughter ended sleeping in the lobby because she was so exhausted. When we got into our rooms, we saw so many mosquitoes and gnats flying around. It was SO gross. They were all flying around the kitchen area, the living room area and they were all hovering around the drapes! I even saw some that were dead (like someone had killed them prior and left it there; didn't even bother cleaning it up afterwards) on the bathroom ceiling I tried to switch rooms but according to the staff they cannot guarantee that other rooms are going to be bugs free. The only thing the staff did was gave us vouchers for free dinner meal. but guess what, my sister immediately got bitten that night when we slept over. And our family knows how allergic she gets. it was horrible. i wish they would have close off those rooms and not let guests stay because you don't want little kids to get bitten! But perhaps from a business stand point they don't want to lose any money. Honestly i was not please with the stay this time and i felt bad for my sister and my parents whom didn't get a good night sleep at all.

If you are travelers to whom this level of resort is a splurge, a rare treat, and you have determined to set aside the disproportionate amount to stay at DGC,then you will enjoy your stay here. It is a very nice hotel with great amenities (when they are open or available). We stated here as a treat for our daughter's 30th, and we had several 30 somethings (all pass holders) up for cake, so it was convenient. They all wished to see if they would stay at DGC. If you are a traveler accustomed to this style of resort, I think you will find the service below par. There is a lot of smiling, greeting, and inquiry "how are you doing?:. Not so much on actual follow through when there is an issue to be addressed. We had more than one issue on our overnight stay. One of which I consider to be quite compelling for the average hotel customer, involving things that should have been outside but were inside our room all night, this was ignored altogether although someone assured me it would be tended to in "20 minutes or so". Because I am not squeamish about such things, and because I was putting my 9 month old granddaughter to sleep, I let it pass. I did address it with the Club Level concierge when I was checking out, and bless her, she did her investigation of what went awry; that meant little at that point, yet I admire her for caring. This issue was taken care of by maintenance in a hurry as we were checking out, because of course I reported it again, and they have more guests checking in-priorities of the property are on incoming guest$. If you want comfort and amenities, I suggest you do your research on many of the area's other properties. There are some fabulous resorts nearby Disney Resort and with much better value, to be sure, and FAR better service. Most non Disney hotels are very grateful to have your business and are also rated by the park itself. Spend a little more time and a lot less money. I will add, the issue occurred while the 30-somethings were in the room-Not Impressed.

"Super Convenient to BOTH California Adventure and Disneyyland Resort"

This was by far a better experience than I expected based on some of the reviews I found. The property is the closest by far to Disneyland, California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. We stayed from Sunday to Thursday, and didn't need to get the car once. We have stayed at nearby neighbor hotels, and I don't think I could go back to that after staying here... The room was cozy, not huge, but we had adequate space, and a balcony. We had a view of the pool which was being renovated, but they never started making noise before we woke up. There was also a nice big tree blocking the view of the pool which was nice because of the construction. I can imagine that if the pool was something to look at, the tree would be a nuisance. But it gave us privacy. We had bunk beds for the kids and a trundle which was fun. We could have fit 5 people in the room with no problem. The décor was a tad dated in the room, but its a craftsman style hotel so its to be expected. They are scheduled to renovate the lobby in June 2017, so I can imagine that might be inconvenient, but I just hope they keep the craftsman charm there, and don't modernize it too much. We were on the 3rd floor, and I have read some reviews that talk about having to trek a long way to get to either park depending on where you stay, I don't see what they are talking about... When you go to Disney-you expect to walk...It's a given. We are at the White Water Market (I might be missing up the name) on property and the food was great, prices were affordable in comparison to park prices. They had hot items available to order for breakfast and continental type breakfast. The food at Storyteller Café was fantastic, although expensive. Breakfast is strictly buffet (included Character meet & Greet with Chip, Dale, Pluto, and Brother Bear), and dinner was table service (no characters). In California Adventure we did the Princess Breakfast at Ariel's Grotto, this was by far our favorite meal, although very expensive. But the food was fantastic, and we got to visit with Ariel, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Tiana, and Belle. We made the reservation with guest services Sunday night for Monday morning at 9am (park opened at 10), we got to enter the park with other hotel guests just before 9am. We went over to one of the closest lands where a castmember was roping off the park until entry was allowed at 9am. Another cast member form Ariel's Grotto came to collect us around 8:50 so that we could make our reservation on time. It was hard to get information on how this would work ahead of time, as everyone we talked to said something different. We were able to enter California Adventure through the hotel entrance on Monday and Wednesday 1 hour before the park opened. Get in line at least 15 minutes early though, on our way to breakfast, we saw people start lining up about 45 minutes ahead of time. Typically during Magic Morning, they only allow you to enter the main square, and fast passes don't begin to print until the park opens.; but if you show your hotel key, they will allow you to get to Paradise pier and CarsLand. We were able to enter Disneyland 1 hour early on Tuesday, however you could only enter Main Street, the same hotel perks were not offered at Disneyland. Another nice thing is if you want to explore Downtown Disney on the day you check out, you can leave your car parked all day in the lot or valet as long as you get all your stuff into the car before checkout time, or you can have your luggage stored by the hotel. The staff was wonderful throughout our stay, and while the staff treatment wasn't what I would call "magical" it was far better than some other comparable level Resorts I have stayed at in the past. We will be staying here again.

"Worth the Extra Cost"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We wanted to stay on a Disney Property on our last visit to Disneyland (especially because we've stayed in several hotels outside the park district and felt so exhausted to make it back at the end of the day). With the three options they had (the Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier, and Grand Californian), we really weren't sure which one would be a better fit. We were booking through Costco, so they offered some great deals at each of the three hotels, with the Grand Californian being the most expensive. The reviews didn't help much because each of the three were all rated high and had little differences in amenities. So, we just picked this place because we loved the way if felt like a lodge rather than a hotel. We are sure glad we did, not one regret from paying the extra cost. I want to point out the things that made this hotel worth it to our family for the extra cost (Even if the other two Disneyland hotels have some of these things also): 1- Daily housekeeping deserves high marks for their attention to detail and the wonderful turn down service. 2- The staff also deserve a high rating for their attentiveness, service, and overall friendly demeanor. 3-The hotel itself was immaculate with an amazing lobby that reminded me of the Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park. They even had a guy playing the grand piano in the lobby in the evening that set a relaxing mood. 4- It has its very own private entrance into California Adventures (which was so nice with sleepy kids at the end of the day, especially after the World of Color show). 5- The private entrance also served as the entrance for "guests only" magic mornings (1 hour before the park opened on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays in the California adventure park). Keep in mind that if you don't arrive early to the entrance (recommend up to an hour early), the line will get very long and it might take you most of your magic morning hour to just get into the park. The lines get really long because ALL three Disneyland hotel guests have access to this magic morning hour, but they all seem to go to the private entrance at the Grand Californian. Don't forget your room key! 6- So many benefits to staying at the hotels including Disneyland Park's magic morning hour on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. I love that when I shop in the park, I can have the items sent to the hotel for pick up later instead of carrying it around the park all day. 7- Location makes it the most enjoyable feature as we can come back if my kids have an accident and need to change, have lunch, take a nap/break during the day. Just wonderful. 8- As for the pool at the hotel, it was closed for renovation, but they had a little shuttle that took you over to one of the other hotel pools to swim at. 9-Our room was perfect for our family of five, with a bunkbed and trundle, queen bed, dinning table, mini fridge, and double vanity outside the bathroom. I wish that it had a microwave and was a bigger room for as many people as it slept. 10- Any little necessity that we forgot, they just brought it up at no charge. For food, they had a little convenient store on the main level of the hotel. However, this hotel also has its own entrance to Downtown Disney District, so we were able to pop down to Jamba Juice in the morning, or grab a pizza for dinner just as fast as going down to the convenient store.

"Disney to Disney"

We've stayed at 10 different Disney properties. This one, the Sequoia Lodge at Disney Paris, and 8 properties at Disney World ranging from the value hotels to the Deluxe hotels. The Grand Californian is what you would expect comparing Disney to Disney. Our room was very clean. No mold, no stained carpets, no dirty toilets, or dust on the walls. The beds were comfortable and the view of Downtown Disney was very nice. Our room was quiet, even during the day when we came back to rest or take a nap. You always pay more for convenience at Disney and we found the entrance to California Adventure a huge plus. The line can get really long in the morning but it moves quickly. You go in close to Soarin so if you want to ride it with a short line or grab a fastpass first thing, this hotel will allow you to do that. We also liked that we could just pop back into the hotel during the day without having to walk through Downtown Disney. The rooms do need updating but they are working on it and the depiction of the rooms they have in the lobby after update look very nice! The only thing I can think of that this hotel doesn't do that all of the other Disney hotels does is the towel animals in your bed waiting for you when you come back from the parks. That of course is a minor thing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grand Californian and would definitely stay here again if we return to Disneyland.
