Low budget close to Disneyland
Posted Sep 24, 2016
This motel is walking distance to Disneyland (for most people). It is a bit shabby. For example, the bathtub had a 6" circle of brown where the ceramic coating was missing. The bottoms of our grandson's feet turned slightly blackish if he walked around barefoot - carpets clearly were very dirty. Towels were very rough - using one to dry off felt like exfoliation.
However, everything we used was in working order, including the fridge (didn't use the microwave). Parking was free. Pool appeared clean and the water was clear (we didn't swim in it). No shuttle service or iron/ironing board. Had working hair dryer and television. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were not too soft or hard for us, about right with good support.
Note: this motel is right across the street from the back lot of Disney. Evening fireworks where extremely close and incredibly loud (if you get back to your room before they are set off). Pretty awesome and spectacular, although trees blocked the lowest sets of fireworks. If you go to bed early you WILL be awakened. We saw several people in bathrobes coming out of their rooms to enjoy the show.
If you want cheaper accommodations close to the park and don't mind roughing it a bit, this could be an adequate choice, especially for young families on a budget. Arco AM PM right across the street.
