Would deff stay here again but I do not feel it was worth the price we paid so I will find a cheaper week day to go. Walk to Disneyland was super close and convienent. Customer service could use some improvement, not the most friendly people. Called for clean towels and had to call two more times.

nice sized rooms, and quite honestly I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. Close to the park within 5 min walk. Only very tiny smal complaint was that the staff failed to give us the wifi password and by the time we were settled it felt like a hassle. Once again just a small detail, but it's...

Two full size beds with an extra foldaway bed and lockbox in a closet. Two adults, one toddler. We set the folded bed out next to one bed in case the toddler rolled off the bed. Its a lumpy bed so I wouldn't count on it for an extra person as they would have a tough time sleeping on it....

This was our secound time staying at this hotel and it was another great stay. Rooms are spacious and clean. The water park kept my 5 and 8 year olds busy for hours.

This Hotel was definitely worth the price. It's in the mid level price range but the quality is great! The water park is nice but my 10 year old was close to being not into it because it is more geared for younger kids. I would definitely stay there again. Close enough to walk to Disney (5-10 mins).

It is a great location for families checking out Disneyland! Quick walk to the parks, restaurants and amenities. Clean hotel, clean towels & linens! We didn't spend much time at the hotel, but when we were there the kids loved cooling off in the waterpark and pool! Cost Effective, Clean, Great Location!

“Stay in the tower that is newer. We stayed in the tower and it was centrally located and easy to get to the water areas.”
