We do the Disneyland trip at least once a year, and normally stay at the Howard Johnson, but it was full this time so we stayed at the castle inn...NEVER AGAIN!! The hotel was advertised is right across the street from the park. While that is accurate, it's still 2 full blocks away from the entrance to the park. That would have been nice to know. I was told that I would be able to do a sort of "pre-check" to be able to park my vehicle before the official check in and Not be charged extra. I reserved a two room suites and had six people in my party. Because I only reserved one actual room, (even though it's advertised as a TWO room suit) I was only allowed one vehicle parking spot and since we had six people we had two vehicles so we had to make other arrangements at a nearby hotel for other vehicle and pay $30 to park there. When I was finally able to check in to the room, it was very clean, but it was extremely small! I have stayed in that single rooms bigger than the "two room suite" that I had reserved The refrigerator didn't work and that the microwave was smaller than a bread box. I couldn't get my side-by-side double stroller through the door without taking the children out in the hallway and then collapsing it first. The beds were hard and the hotel was VERY noisy!! I understand the hotel can't control their patrons, but I could literally hear the water drops in the shower in the room above me!! At 6am!! I was very disappointed and will never stay here again!
