I was not happy with my stay, We checked in & did not get the rooms we booked for! Also heard a lot of noise next to the loud freeway.They placed us in building 5 that had renovations and it was horrible! They don’t say on here they charge a parking fee also! Plus no elevators to take up our luggage. Online they make this place look way nicer then it does! Will never stay here again!!

Only good thing was short walk to Disney front gate. I booked a room in building one and then at check in was told i was being upgraded to another building. Short building at back that had to walk through parking lot to get to entrance. Room bathroom infested with ants. Was afraid they would "upgrade" me again. Wish I hadn't paid advance nonrefundable. Now have to deal with new charge of 20 dollars magically showing p from them. They were cheap. Compared to near hotels. I got what I paid. Will not staying here again.

Loved the water park. My daughter had so much fun. Not happy about not getting housekeeping services during our stay. This is something they needs to advise before making a reservation.

I didn’t like the idea that we can’t go into the pool without reservations and no type of breakfast offered

Very disappointing that the room was warm and took hours to cool down even a little bit, had to call and have a fan brought up. Tried to log onto The features offered in the room, ie: Pandora,etc. again employee came up and could not get it connected. Paid for a “ Park View” (Disneyland), could only see the very top of Matterhorn, had a view of the rooftop of the two buildings in front of us and the cars going by on Harbor Boulevard. (Pic available). This was part of a 50th birthday surprise for my cousin, and needless to say we were very unsatisfied with our visit.

Hello, We are sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied during your recent stay with us. We always encourage our guests to let us know if there are any issues with their room accommodations. We are so disheartened that we were not able to better assist you. Due to the way Disneyland is built, only Disneyland properties can view directly into the park. We apologize for any miscommunication regarding the views from the room. We also apologize that your room took a long time to cool down. We are happy that we were able to get you a fan to help cool down the room. We really hope you give us another try and allow us the opportunity to better serve you and your family in the future.

The children's pool play park was great! Our granddaughter had a blast on the slides and shallow kidde pool. We stayed in building 1 and the rooms were very clean and updated. The walk to the Disney parks was vey convenient; only about 10 minutes or so.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. We are glad your granddaughter had a blast in our waterpark and that our hotel was a convenient walk for you to Disneyland. It’s also great that you were able to stay in one of our renovated rooms. We are currently planning renovations on building 2 for later this year and hope to have the entire property fully renovated within the next few years. We hope to see you during your next trip to the Anaheim Resort.
