If you expect the Ritz when you book then you will be disappointed, other than that it's a great handy place to stay, much closer than many of the other hotels. We stayed 4 nights and had a ground floor room just behind reception.
Comfortable beds, great pillows
Spacious room and really spacious bathroom (think ours may have been a disabled room).
Easy 5 minute "adult" walk to Disneyland gates.
Free wi fi and safe
Handy to plenty of eating places
Helpful staff, happy to organise shuttles etc
No traffic noise from our room
Lots of upstairs noise (sounded like someone was rolling marbles around on a wooden floor)
Bathroom wasn't old but tiles could use a good scrub
No restaurant or bar in the building (or any common area while waiting to check-in that I could see)
Not very private if you have curtains open
Couldn't see the fireworks, but we sure could hear them
Considering we spent very little time in our room I thought it was pretty good value for money and in a very handy location. If you don't have unrealistic expectations (and after all, this is Disneyland - kids, wear and tear, noise are to be expected), I'd recommend it as a handy, economical place to stay.
