“Great Location”

 

Directly across the street from Disneyland, literally a five minute walk. Parking if FREE, there sister hotel has a $10.00 charge nightly for parking. Perfect FULL hot breakfast, very spacious; included, eggs, ham, sausage, potatoes etc…Hot and cold cereals, donuts and pastries. Saved us about $50.00 every morning before we headed out. Will stay here again, kids loved the heated pool. CVS was about two blocks down and had everything we needed; sunblock snacks & drinks. They also have a balcony that they open when Disneyland has fireworks we were able to sit and watch them from there.

gauchoaz from Scottsdale, AZ we are excited to see you next time!

“Everything I wanted”

Close to everything for me to do business. Incredible breakfast in a spacious room and a great wifi to keep up with work. Definitely will be back to go to the park across the street. Front desk super helpful and friendly
