  • I need some hotel advice

    We're in the planning stages of an early June family gathering at Disneyland. We've pretty much eliminated staying at any of the official Disneyland hotels, since our budget is around $100 to $125 a night. Can any of you help by pointing us in the direction of several nice hotels near the resort? The group will be mostly adults, one teenager, and one kid age eight, if that matters.

    Thank you very much!

    well, I can recommend hotels, but I'm not sure of the prices. If you are insistent in staying off property, check out the Anabella, the Hilton & Tower, and the Howard Johnson. Those seem to be the most popular in the area and I've heard good things about all of them. What are your requirements besides price (i.e. shuttle service, continental breakfast, etc)?

      You also want to book in advance to get that price at the Hilton or even the Marriot across the street at the convention center... Last year I fond rooms there starting at $99 with a discount... (Not that I said there, I have family 15 minutes away... but occasionally I don't want to see them, because, well, they are FAMILY )

      I expect that room bookings may have gone up because they are expecting a boost in tourism this year... The rumor was a lot of people started booking their trips for this year last fall...

          humm... well, if you have any close family/friends that are CMs, they can get you a voucher for a "Friends and Family Rate" at PPH, which I believe brings it close if not a little under your budget. You might want to look into that.

              I can highly recommend the Embassy Suites on Harbor Blvd about 1/2 mile from Disneyland. The AAA rate should be in your budget and you get a full breakfast too! They have a shuttle to the park also. Have fun!

                Penny Sleeper ain't bad. i've done the 3 hour turn around before and just crashed there. All I remember about was a parking space, a door, and a bed.

                  The Penny Sleeper is alright if you fall asleep instantly, but last time I stayed there and my friend and I spent a lot of time being grossed out by the.. interesting stains on the floor..

                    I always use Priceline for hotels when I go. I've stayed at the Hilton for $60 a night. Side note-The Marriot has the most comfortable mattress I've slept on in my life.

                      I keep wanting to try Priceline for Disneyland but just to scared. I've used it before when location is not as important. One of these days I may try it for a quick weekend trip or something.

                        Best and cheapest on the strip.

                        Right across the street from DL. About a 2 min walk. Closer than the DLH.

                          Priceline made me a bit nervous when I first started using it. Now I feel pretty comfortable getting the best deal possible. There is a definite system to it and it takes some practice. A good way to do it is to use two credit cards so in case you mess up you can try again. Someday I'd like to forget about priceline and stay in one of the DL hotels but I better save up for that.

                            One word,ewww we stayed there in Nov. and it has gone down hill sooooo bad. I wouldn't stay there again.

                            Also, I find that Tropicana is usually cheaper also.

                              I have to agree with the bad reviews of Castle. We had a very unpleasant stay there. We really like BW Park Place Inn and Hojo's .


                              Since we've started taking the kids in 1996
                              we've done(out of the harbor places)
                              Hojo's--
                              Fairfield--
                              Carousal-- :botox:
                              Tropicana (two times)--
                              BW Park Place (two times)--
                              Desert (two times)--
                              Castle --
                              We're doing Park Inn in July

                              not on Harbor, we've done
                              Best Inn (too far away)--
                              Embassy (LOVED IT Garden Grove)--
                              Desert Palm-- :botox:
                              Hilton Inn & Suites--too far away, but good :botox:

                              and DLH (two times)


                              I think that's it

                                Pay Attention here... Because whenever I go, I stay in 1 of 2 places. Either the Tropicana or the Carousel Inn and Suites.
                                Now the rooms aren't what you're going to get if you're staying in the GCH, but for the price, and the location, there's nothing better.
                                The Carousel Inn also has a complementary breakfast that is the best! It's buffet style and there's oatmeal, cereal, muffins, pastries, fruit, the works. Compared to the Tropicana breakfast where the workers actually dish you out one pastry, I'd say the Carousel is the best bang for the buck. It's also soooooo close to the entrance that they don't even offer a shuttle. It literally is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET!!
                                I only hope we never lose sight of one thing... that it was all started by a mouse!

                                  We went in November too and it was great. And the prices for all those hotels really fluctuate allot.

                                    I'd recommend the Anabella. Good location (corner of Katella and Disneyland Dr.), great service, fairly good prices, and nice rooms and property. Where ever you end up staying, be sure to give us a review of it. Have a good trip!
