6/10 Good

Needs some improvements
Front desk friendliness and attentiveness is superb. Location is amazing, walking distance to/from Disneyland and size and accommodations for big families with kids are wonderful. However, housekeeping consists of just towel changing and clearing trash cans “to avoid contact” as if they are not already entering our room anyways and having contact with surfaces and germs within our room. Forget about checking to restock personal needs such as toilet paper. My trash cans were not cleared one of those days so I called the front desk and was told to just leave it outside my door and someone would come by to clean it. It took them hours to pick it up. Breakfast is basic but, but omelettes are tasty and it varies from day to day so you are not eating the same thing everyday. They say breakfast stops at 10am but employees lack the door 10-15min before.

4/10 Fair

Bad service
We reserved our stay for 4 nights and requested lower level which we did not get. They only had level 4😠. Ok On the 3rd night our room was still not cleaned called front desk because we had no TP, bath towels, trash was not taken out and floors needed to be vacuumed. They were supposed to get someone to come out and clean. Left for the day and when we came back our room was still mot cleaned. Had to tell the cleaning people that were out on hall way to come clan. We are very disappointed because we always stay at this hotel and everything has been good until now.

There was a lot of changes. You can no longer have a scooter delivered to the hotel. If you have a scooter you must keep it in your room. In the past the hotel had a room they kept the scooters and plugged them in to charge for you. We got a roll a way bed and it was horrible. It sank in the middle. They don’t clean your room, but they will emptied trash and bring in clean towels each day. You have to ask if you need anything else done. And then they tell you they aren’t allowed to do it because of the Covid guidelines they have to follow. It was a bit frustrating at times. The free Continental breakfast in the past has been wonderful. This time they didn’t have much food. No fresh fruit no yogurt. They did have some kind of eggs and potatoes. You could make mini waffles. They had bread to make toast. The experience was much different then in the past.

The Perfect Spot for Families Visiting Disney
Spacious suites - nice for families. So convenient for a visit to Disneyland. The one thing we did not like was the awkward entrance and exit to the underground parking and the slowness of the parking elevator.
