After reading previous reviews I was slightly concerned, although we have now been at the hotel for 9 nights and could of happily stayed for longer! Myself and boyfriend haven’t got a bad word to say! Staff are so lovely and friendly, rooms cleaned with fresh towels etc daily, they also reduced the parking charge for us as we were staying for 9 nights. No the rooms are not completely up to date - but we didn’t book our holiday to spend in the hotel room. It’s honestly been great- really comfortable bed, pool view, lovely quiet room no noise at all, iron, shower and bath, hair dryer, lots of storage. We can’t thank Knott’s berry enough for our stay here Read less

My family and I have been to the Southern California theme park circuit several times in the last few years, and each time, we’ve stayed in a Disney Good Neighbor hotel. This time, it was just my wife and I, and we opted for the Knott’s hotel because we intended to spend the most time at Knott’s Berry Farm during our trip. I strongly suspect we’ll be back. I’ll summarize my pros and cons lists, then go into further detail below for anyone who hasn’t already fallen asleep. Pros: Proximity to KBF, friendly service (only one exception during our stay), free shuttle to/from Disneyland, nice pool, fast elevators, has safe in room, hotel FEELS SAFE, decent enough breakfast buffet if you got the package that includes it. Cons: Room had a weird (not necessarily bad, just weird) smell when we got there, signs of wear and tear once outside the lobby/restaurant area, third party soda vending machine on our floor broken all week. That’s it. That’s the whole list. Prior to booking the room, I did my Trip Advisor review reading, and saw a lot of commenters griping about the place being dated or in need of renovation. The lobby area and the restaurant, Amber Waves, hide this truth from visitors at first glance, as they look very nice and well-maintained. As for our room, the best way I can describe it is “simple.” It had the basics of any hotel room, with two pictures on the wall to remind you it wasn’t a motel 6. Simply put, no frills, but really, who cares? I didn’t book a theme park hotel because I needed Snoopy to tuck me in at night (although I think they do offer that service or something similar for kiddos). I booked here because I wanted a nearby crash pad for when I was wrecked from a day of theme parking, and this hotel was perfect for that. I felt we had a safe place to comfortably unwind until we got up to hit the park again. The bed was comfy (although the pillows sucked - but that’s to be expected at any hotel), the room had a safe with electronic lock, and the air conditioning worked quickly to cool the room. We got the package that included park tickets and the daily breakfast buffet. Buying tickets this way gets you early entry each day, so GO EARLY and ride while there are no lines. The breakfast buffet had biscuits and gravy, potatoes, eggs, and bacon & sausage each day, along with the usual cereal and pastries. Service was friendly from everyone we encountered there with the exception of a young, and markedly short, hostess, who looked like she hated her life. My gripe about the service would be that the servers tended to disappear, leaving drink glasses empty. The exception to this was Trip Advisor fan favorite Mario, who was on the spot when needed, but never annoyingly hovering. The dude is good, and very friendly. The front desk and shuttle staff were very friendly throughout our stay. Having a free ride to Disneyland was an amazing deal (don’t forget to tip your driver, folks 😉). My recommendation would be to go to Knott’s when we did (last week of August) as the park was EMPTY all day since local schools were back in session. We walked onto pretty much everything for two days in a row, and we enjoyed staying at the Knott’s hotel to unwind after all the excitement, without having to stress about driving and parking.

This hotel is pretty terrible. You are paying only for the name and proximity to the park. It is extremely dated to the point of feeling dirty. There were large pieces missing from our furniture. I booked the hotel for 1 night leading up to a day at KBF to celebrate my mother's 60th bday (her request) with my family. The fact that you could… Read more
This hotel is pretty terrible. You are paying only for the name and proximity to the park. It is extremely dated to the point of feeling dirty. There were large pieces missing from our furniture. I booked the hotel for 1 night leading up to a day at KBF to celebrate my mother's 60th bday (her request) with my family. The fact that you could walk into KBF was the biggest selling point since we were with small children. We checked in around 4 and then hit the pool with our daughters, ages 3 and 5. The pool is fine-- pretty much your standard budget hotel pool but a little bigger. They do have a splash pad, which is great for the kids. There were a couple towel areas at the pool but sadly they were basically empty almost the entire time. There was never anyone going around to pick up old towels. The furniture at the pool looked like something you would buy at a cheap discount store. There also wasn't much furniture, despite there being a lot of unused space. After the pool, we grabbed a quick dinner and then headed back to the room to shower and get everyone ready for bed (around 7). As soon as I turned on the shower, the water began pooling. We aren't talking a slow drain but a complete blockage. Because it was so late, I showered both my kids so we could try to get them to bed at a reasonable hour. I was pretty grossed out about them standing in a pool of water on a drain that already had someone else's hair stuck to it. We called the front desk to let them know what was going on and they sent maintenance up ~30/45 min later. It took him a while to unclog the drain and then he had to call housekeeping to come clean up the mess. This whole process took ~2 hours. In the meantime, no one is sleeping due to all the noise (people in and out, shop vac running), and we can't use the bathroom either. By the time all the staff left it was approaching 10pm, which is late for kids that age, especially after an afternoon at the pool and before a big day at KBF. Needless to say, this set back our vacation in a big way. A big part of staying in a hotel is having a functional bathroom! If housekeeping is turning a room, cleaning a shower should be part of it. After you clean, you usually rinse, which would be indicative of a completely blocked drain. HUGE miss, in my opinion. I did call 2 days after checkout to complain and also to request a partial refund at minimum. I was offered only 10%, which feels ridiculous given the inconvenience of not having a functioning bathroom for almost three hours. The only upside to our stay was the staff on-site-- all were very friendly and helpful. If not for them I would have rated 1 star. Read less

Our wedding party stayed here the night before the wedding. I was quite embarrassed by the shody furniture and very uncomfortable beds. I regretted that we suggested that our guests stay here.

The furniture was chipped and looked like it came from a garage sale. The walls throughout the room were chipped and needed a good paint job. At 2:30 am a leaf blower was being used outside my bedroom window. Not one of our guests slept well. It was a huge disappoint even though it was Knott's Berry Farm. Read less

We only stayed here for one night and we were pleasantly surprised. We drove in from Vegas and we booked this place as we wanted to check out the amusement park. By reading the reviews, we knew that the hotel is on the older side. All staff we encountered were very nice which made our stay more enjoyable. The price to stay here was quite reasonable and included discounts for the restaurant and park. We stayed in a Snoopy themed room and the experience of Snoopy tucking in my youngest boy was awesome. As we checked out in the morning, Bell service held our luggage for us and we took advantage of the early park entry for hotel guests. All my boys had alot of fun at the park and we are definitely planning on coming back again next year. As I said earlier, it is an older hotel, but it's clean with great staff. I believe there will be some renovations if I'm not wrong and that would definitely make a more desirable place to stay. I hope they make renovations that make sense. Read less
