We arrived a bit after 3pm & were told our room would not be ready until 4pm...a disappointment after driving for 7 hours, but we were offered an alternative room. Because we had pool reservations at 3, we really had no other option but to take the room. Although the room was very clean, the room and furniture/decor were quite outdated- appeared to be from the 80's. While not a huge deal, I'll admit, I was taken back as it was not like any of the advertised updated rooms or photos I saw from the site. There were two large windows without blinds, so unfortunately, we were woken up to the sunlight and there was no way to keep the room dark & protected from the heat of the sun. Additionally, the room was quite warm & humid especially with the 90 weather...the a/c was not able to keep up. Because of this, it was impossible to dry anything in the bathroom. Towels were constantly damp due to lack of airflow. With that being said, the hotel did cover all of our basic needs (and location is a plus), as we were there for Disneyland and would be spending very little time in the actual room. Overall, the hotel did not leave a lasting impression either way. I wouldn't go out of my way to stay again, though if I did, I would make sure I had one of the renovated room, for comfort's sake.
