Red Lion 4ever!

The staff is always super pleasant, rooms are immaculate clean, walls are thick enough I don't hear people and screaming kids in the other room. Modern clean feel. Love them!

Nice BUT there are amenity and parking fees!

This hotel was really nice and the beds were comfy. Also it was about a 10-15 minute walk to Disneyland, which was great. The only bad thing about it is that since this is a resort. At the end of your stay, you have to pay for amenity fees for each night. As well as for parking fees. Which I find l absolutely ridiculous to pay for parking fees when I am staying at the hotel. I stayed 2 nights and I had to pay another 70$ for all these extra fees.

Sad to say

Pros: Nice proximity to Disneyland. Room was clean
Cons: Don't give grief over a 10 cent bottle of water. Have check list to make sure everything is in room (like the do not disturb sign). bring replacement
This is the third year in a row that I have stayed at the Red Lion Anaheim. Somethings no doubt were beyond their control (the coffee maker), but four problems arose. First, when I was in a hurry to get out in the morning I discovered the coffee maker didn't work. Called the front desk for replacement. After waiting for about 15 minutes someone arrived, without a coffee maker to see the problem. Since they didn't bring one I had to wait another 10-15 minutes, and, while waiting I couldn't very well get ready to leave (like take a shower, change clothes, etc). They should have showed up with one in the first place. Next, I discovered there was no "do not disturb" sign. Called the desk. They said they would bring one. I waited. Finally, after waiting for a period of time, while people were waiting, I went to the hall to see if they were coming. They brought the sign but didn't notify me. I could have sat there forever and not known. Came back that evening and requested a bottle of water, thinking that if my room had been cleaned they would have left one. I was told that it was against policy, that I was only allowed one per stay (?????, C'mon, I paid 450 dollars for three days, didn't use their maid service (I would think that saved the Red Lion a little money, but took flak for a ten cent bottle of water???????). C'mon, it cost 10 cents! Lastly, my door keys didn't work worth a darn. It took about 10 tries the first two nights, and the third night I had to go down to the desk

Staff not so friendly

Be aware parking is $15 a day then on top of that they put a deposit on your credit card on top of parking and room price and taxes.

It was overall horrible. Lack of a clean facility and lazy house keeping.

Everything was fine

There was nothing special about this hotel. It was a 10 minute walk to Disneyland which was fine with us. The only complaint I have is there wasn't complimentary coffee in the lobby area.
