I enjoyed my stay at this property. Housekeeping left the room spotless every day and I particularly liked the option for express service so that the room was services by 1 PM. The only thing I didn't like was the pillows but that is a personal thing.

Good value for the money as compared to staying on Disney property. A 15 minute walk was not bad at all.

"Great value - great location!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

I highly recommend this place if you're looking for an affordable place within walking distance from Disney! It was perfect for our half marathon weekend - we went back and forth both days to and from the Disney area - and it was a nice walk! The hotel is definitely a little bit on the older side - when I walked in the building it had a musty sort of smell. The room didn't have that though - thankfully! I did find one little bug on the wall in the bathroom - but other than that, it was very clean! The room had a little balcony - and we had an awesome view of the fireworks show!! I would definitely stay there again -Disney is expensive enough, gotta find all the values where you can! :)

"Top resort in Disneyland Area"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 13, 2017 NEW
We have been visiting this resort for decades. No other hotel in the Disneyland area can surpass this hotel for price, cleanliness, staff support, and amenities. The WaterPark is ideal for the small chlld, and there is still a large pool for swimming. It is a 7 minute walk to the front entrance of the Park which avoids the trolley system for other chain hotels farther away. Rooms are spacious and offer large double closets, new mattresses, and tower rooms overlook the Matterhorn and can view the nightly Park fireworks. Jeri's Store has food, beverages, souvenirs, and sundries. Housekeeping is superb and the rooms are immaculate. Grounds are pristine with flowers all year round. There is an Arcade for children. Mimi's Restaurant is directly across the street and offers great family meals for bargain prices. An outdoor deck is available. There is NO better value close to the Park.
