The hotel is located a short walking distance from Disney. I give the waterpark a 5 start since my kids really enjoyed it. It was a total hit for my little ones. There's also a life guard on duty which was very nice given that there's a lot of little ones. The only complaints about our stay here is that...

We stayed for a week over Spring Break and Easter in Building 1 and had no problems with the noise from the freeway as other people suggest. The Wifi is great as my daughter was sending emails to her school in Australia with no problems. The Kids Suite was amazing and our two Daughters aged 9 and 16 said it...

The visit went well and I was very pleased with the size of the room (Queen size Premium - building 1, floor 5) and the walking proximity to Disneyland. There was only one negative experience we had when it came to customer service. I called to inquire about the cost of dry cleaning services and was told there would be...

We stayed here for just one night during our 2-day Disneyland/California adventure trip. It was a nice hotel, not fancy, but perfect for a simple family trip. I wish that I would have had a chance to check out the pool and play area for kids but we were too exhausted from the parks at the end of the day!...

This hotel was excellent! Great location, VERY clean, friendly staff. Went with my family(kids 2&3) they loved the waterpark. Having a fridge and Keurig in the rooms made it even better. Short walk to Disney and Mimi's across the street has the yummiest food. Will be staying here next time.

We booked a room with a view of Disney not realizing it meant we would be right next to the freeway (in fact, the room closest to the freeway in the hotel). A quick call to the front desk and having rejected they move us a few doors along the corridor to a room 30 yards further away we got...
