The "Good": 1. Great location (not quite walking distance) to Knott's Berry Farm 2. Clean, comfortable room with a patio 3. Large, heated swimming pool with inflatable pool toys and pool noodles provided The "Not-So-Good": 1.

The "Good": 1. Great location (not quite walking distance) to Knott's Berry Farm 2. Clean, comfortable room with a patio 3. Large, heated swimming pool with inflatable pool toys and pool noodles provided The "Not-So-Good": 1. This is the first hotel I've ever been to (even during the pandemic) that has a Keurig coffee maker but provides no coffee pods or cups....so weird. There is also no coffee in the lobby so both days I actually got in my car and drove to Starbucks or McDonalds for coffee. With California removing COVID restrictions last month there is really no excuse for this. 2. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the A/C here is LOUD....I'm glad it still worked to cool the room, but honestly I think they are so old that they are in need of replacement. 3. Consider offering a shuttle to Knott's...$20 is a lot to pay to park at a theme park when the hotel is so close, but still a long walk. Read less

Large hotel with ample parking. Room was so comfy and so was shower. Some guests were rude and loud in the hallway not by fault of the hotel. Lots of dining and shopping nearby. We didn't get to enjoy the amenities of the hotel as we just wanted to chill and relax in room.

Everything else about this property is great. Rooms are comfortable, beds are comfortable, showers have good pressure (shower heads could use a good scrub or replacement), restaurant staff are excellent and breakfast is excellent. BUT, every time the air conditioner kicks on it is like a plane has been cleared for take off right in your room. … Read more
Everything else about this property is great. Rooms are comfortable, beds are comfortable, showers have good pressure (shower heads could use a good scrub or replacement), restaurant staff are excellent and breakfast is excellent. BUT, every time the air conditioner kicks on it is like a plane has been cleared for take off right in your room. It woke us up all night long. The purpose of a hotel room is to sleep when you are away from home, and if you can't accomplish that...no need to return. It really is a shame as it is an otherwise great hotel. Read less

There are some positive things ad some negatives for this hotel. The negatives: area is quite noisy, with police/fire sirens throughout the night and thin walls make it hard to tune out arguing or amorous guests.

There are some positive things ad some negatives for this hotel. The negatives: area is quite noisy, with police/fire sirens throughout the night and thin walls make it hard to tune out arguing or amorous guests. We are elite club members, but they for some reason did away with a welcome amenity, citing covid as the reason. I'm not sure why the pandemic would mean they couldn't stock the fridge with a couple of water bottles and the counter with a couple of keurig pods....but whatever. They're happy to charge us $4 for a bottle of water from the vending machine though. No maid service unless we request it, no coffee or even a microwave in the room. The bathroom sink was clogged also. The positives: The bed and pillows were comfortable and we got a good night's sleep despite the noise. We used a white noise phone app which helped. Room was clean and smelled of fresh linen. The attached restaurant allowed dine-in, take out, or room service, and our breakfast, while not complimentary, was delicious. While disappointed with the lack of service, it is still good value for the money we paid and would stay here again. Read less

Huge party during the day. No masks, no distancing, drinking, smoking. The party lasted until 4 in the morning. No help from the front desk. No reply from corporate or the hotel. True embarrassment. No consideration.
