Room was clean and the hotel is at a great location. We enjoyed the splash pad area several times during our stay and it was the highlight of our trip. The employees in the water area were always nice and helpful. The only reason I can’t give five stars is because not all the employees at the front desk are helpful. First, we requested blankets and never received them. Then, requested a cleaning and again no one cleaned the room. Lastly, asked if I can leave my vehicle for an extra hour after checkout and again they told me to no. So it’s ok to not have my room ready by checkin time, but not ok to just have 30minutes to an hour to move the vehicle outside of the hotel?

The stay was AMAZING! The hotel and the staff are wonderful. They were able to assist me in setting up parking for the stay; starting prior to Disneyland opening for the day...to getting a room ready for our stay earlier than the 4pm check-in time...to setting up reservations at the Waterpark. Plus, we were able to get a view of Disneyland that allowed us to watch the evening fireworks from our room.
