8/10 Very Good

6/10 Good

Paid parking at a hotel is absurd. No room service or room cleaning.

Verified guest review

2/10 Poor

What you get is not what they tell you
They told us one thing and the next day told us something else different about parking. The room we got was not what we booked and beds were very uncomfortable.

4/10 Fair

Bad desk service and misinformation on policies
Stayed here quite a few times and each time it’s gotten progressively worse. Each time misinformation is given by staff members over the goons and then when it’s time to check in or during the stay it’s “not sure who told you XYZ, but that’s not the case, sorry”. There’s a very good chance that after staying here exclusively during our stays in Anaheim, that we just checked out from our last stay there. Super disappointed by the “customer service” if the desk staff and those that answer the phones and have voiced these discrepancies and inconsistencies with the staff during multiple stays and the answer is always “too bad” instead of trying AT ALL to make it up to us or even empathize about the situation.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel was so comfortable and very comfortable loved the double full beds, it was just wonderful. The only thing that got me was that the parking was not included, we had to pay extra for each day.

2/10 Poor

Double charge for no reason
Ended use paying for 2 room when I clearly only booked one room with Didn’t want to spend a extra 240 that I didn’t even book and wasn’t really help at the hotel to fix my problem. The app offer better service on fixing things than the hotel it self.

Perfect Location for D23 Expo and Disneyland
This hotel was a great price for Expo weekend, and the location can't be matched for getting to both the convention center and the parks.
