This was a perfect place to stay with our grandkids (ages 4-6-12). All enjoyed the water park everyday. We did not do Disneyland on this trip since we were in Anaheim for a volleyball tournament. The room was clean, the grounds well kept, and the water park was the highlight.

Our hotel room was located in the proximity of the water park for children. Amenities for families were great with a shop on site with a good range of supplies and great laundry facilities. The beds...

We picked this place so we can be close to Disney and the water park for the kids. It all worked perfectly planned. We walked to Disney every day and back every night. Our kids are 9 and 11 and they were troopers. The morning before check out they played in the water playground. Our room was 2 queens for...

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights due to its close proximity to Disneyland which is just a 10 minute walk away! Room was big, beds comfy, small balcony which was great to dry our washing but there were no chairs outside. We arrived 3 hours before check in, but were lucky enough to have our room already ready which...

Stayed for 4 nights visiting Disney land. Great service. Great position. Rooms good but make sure you get the ones without the sky lights as it is very bright in the mornings if you want to sleep in. Pool great for kids. Small shop on site very handy. Overall a great family hotel.
