We stayed in a loft suite with our two adult children and it worked out great (two bathrooms!). The grounds are well maintained, breakfast very good and staff were helpful. The property does need an overhaul (bathrooms and furniture) but linens were clean and beds comfy, I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews but I question whether some people specifically look for issues. We walked to Disney as we were all adults but I think most families would want the transportation pass. That being said we liked the location because it is not right next to the park. « less

We are a large family. We rented a 2 bedroom room. The 2nd bedroom is a loft. It was quite warm up there which is the reason for a 4 and not a 5. Everything else was excellent. Food was as expected. Location was excellent. Shuttle was very very convenient. We never had to wait. It was affordable, efficient, just perfect for our stay! We would definitely stay here again! I researched the hotels thoroughly and I feel like our choice was great! « less

If you are travelling to Disneyland with your family, then this hotel is a great choice. The rooms have well equipped kitchens, the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, there is a decent breakfast every morning, and it's not only a walkable distance to Disney, but also to the GardenWalk where you can find a selection of restaurants and a movie theatre.
I did read some reviews that griped about the distance to walk to Disneyland. It's two and a half blocks to the entrance, and they are NYC type east to west blocks (LONG), so allow about 15 minutes. It's quite an enjoyable walk, even on the return with children! « less

Having lived in Southern California all my life I’ve never had a need for a hotel near Disneyland. But we decided we wanted to get an early start at the park on a Sunday morning, so we decided to spend the night nearby. The room rates at the three Disney properties were way beyond our comfort level, so I hit TA to select one of the dozens (hundreds?) in the area. We decided on this Residence Inn based on several factors, primarily the reasonable rate, location, free parking and breakfast, and of course strong TA reviews.
We were in one of their “studio suites”. I was very impressed with the room, which was spacious and well laid out. The hotel web site says it’s a fully-stocked kitchen, and it really is, with full-size appliances, a full complement of pots and pans, paper towels and dish soap, and even microwave popcorn. The entire suite was clean (living area, kitchen, bed and bathroom), even baseboards and corners that are easy to let get grungy. The toilet/shower-bath room is very small and might be uncomfortable for someone even slightly larger than average, but at least they use a curved curtain rod so the shower itself doesn’t feel tight.
It is a solid 15 minutes walk from the hotel driveway to the park entrance plaza, which is something to keep in mind if you anticipate carrying back anything (purchases or small children) at the end of a long day. One trick we figured out is that the Pumbaa parking lot is around the corner from the hotel, so we hopped on the Pumbaa shuttle from the East Shuttle Area of the resort and saved at least half the walking. Frequency of that shuttle varies, though, so if you’re not too tired, the walk might not take much longer. The staff was professional, although we didn’t have too much interaction with them. The breakfast room was very busy in the morning, but staff were there to replenish and tidy up, and there were plenty of tables and chairs in three distinct areas (an outdoor patio, indoor sunroom and further indoor room).
All in all, a good choice if you’re looking for a place to stay near Disneyland. « less

I recently stayed here during a VEX Robotics competition at the Convention Center. I mention this because, we had a robot with us. We stayed on a 2 bedroom loft suite, it was 2 adults and 2 children. I stayed in the room upstairs with my son, and below was a teacher and another class mate of my sons. The space we had was great! It allowed us to work on our robot in the evenings. One night, I 'hosted' the rest of team which had been staying elsewhere--that meant I had 12 people for dinner, and was able to prepare it easily in the simple kitchen, using the fantastic outdoor BBQ area! The room was clean, as I had expected booking a Marriott product. I like the consistency. Bed was firm, and sheets clean and crisp. The INCLUDED breakfast was WAY BETTER than I had thought it would be. My son made his own fresh waffles every day. I liked that the trays were not super large, and they were continually being changed and refreshed. Best was the friendly staff and service we received from them. We had logistical headaches with shipping containers being dropped off, and we needed to store large boxes. All I can say without the boring details was that the staff went out of their way to 'work with us' and help us. LOCATION....well, we had to haul a large heavy crate (3'X3') and tool boxes back and forth to the convention center. We 'thought' we could walk it with a simple hand trolley--we were wrong, we needed to rent a car just to haul the crate. But, as for simple walking distance to the convention center--it was perfect, a very easy 10 minute walk. Dining options were just across the street. We are already making our plans to return next year. Our rate was no more or less than anywhere else, divided by 4, add in breakfast....All in all, we felt we received value & service for what we paid. « less
