We just got back from 4 days at Disneyland. We have two kids 5 & 3. They loved the water playground and we loved the hot tub. The hotel was very clean, but a bit dated.

Would definitely stay here again. Perfect for families, close to Disney. Fantastic. I can't give it five because I've stayed in nicer places for the value, but great accommodation. Close enough walk to Disney you could take an afternoon break. Fun water park inside. Helpful staff.
