Camelot Inn and Suites Anaheim
- What's Included
Our OpinionEven though this is only rated as a 2 star hotel, it tends to over deliver on that rating. If you are on a budget but don't want to end up in a poor hotel, then this would be a good choice. More of a motel style with simple and clean rooms. Ask for a higher floor and you may get a view of the Disneyland fireworks show. Family suites are great for up to 6 occupants. Sister hotel to the Tropicana Inn and Suites
Location: In Anaheim right next to the Disneyland Park and close to many of the area attractions.
My daughters and I got a 2 room suite. First off there is no landscaping. It just is a parking lot. A negative for me. You can't park your own car and you have to rely on valet service. The reason being is that being across the street from Disneyland, they sell the parking spots on the motel lot for Disneyland visitors. Did not like this at all and the valet ended up scrapping the rental car and tried to hide it. Eventually their insurance paid for it. The best part of it was that it is an easy walk to Disneyland. The room was ok but don't think would stay there again
Could not fault location but very old property in old style inn arrangement. Shower water strength excellent, beds comfy, and pillows ok. TV very local. WiFi quite slow, dated service. Room wasn't cleaned day two, so not impressed. Long narrow rooms. Main issue is the noise as every foot fall from room above is transferred, very poor. Even the vacuum cleaning above sounds like it is in your own room. Make sure you ask for highest rooms.
We for our Disneyland mini stay decided to pick one of the Harbor Drive basic motels that are a super close to Disneyland for walking over. For me, comfy beds were of upmost importance, so I narrowed choices down to properties that had reviews emphasizing this and from there I let DS 21 look at pictures and pick. He picked this one, and we both were very happy with our choice. I'm picky on beds, and these worked just fine for me.DS I believe picked this property over other choices I gave him for the cute little pool area and hot tub. And this area was nice I thought. Do note that the pool is smaller than it looks in the photos and only three feet deep. I actually think that if you have little ones, that is a positive, not a negative. One night too, DS met some other 20 somethings at the hot tub and they all went to McDonalds (right next door together after the hot tub closed at 10). The hot tub and pool area are a nice gathering place to talk to other guests is you are a gregarious type who enjoys this. I didn't go into the hot tub and really liked it that they had nice chairs to sit in right by there, so I could visit with other people and DS when he was in without any problem and without getting wet. This was a much better setup than I normally see for someone who doesn't want to change and go into the hot tub, but wants to be with and visit others who are going in. Like other posters reported, the motel should update photos of rooms, as they have the typical bedding you see in hotels / motels today -- nice and tasteful -- not the floral bedspreads that look dated and tacky in the photos. Rooms were surprisingly spacious too. There is a sink and very long counter area outside the bathroom (goes across the whole wall) which was very convenient. There is a small (dated, but it worked just fine) microwave and refrigerator. There is a coffee maker too, but we aren't coffee drinkers, so I can't report on that. There was a small desk and comfy straight chair, like you would have at a dining room table (not a actual office chair like you'd find at let's at a Hilton Garden Inn. This chair was fine for me though, and when I woke up early when DS was still sleeping in the bed by the window, I moved this over to the large bathroom counter, turned on the light over there and did some things on my computer and had great lighting while keeping lights off in the other areas of the room. There were also two more comfy more plush chairs and a table over by the window. The chairs could be moved too unlike most motel/hotel comfy chairs, so this little area was perfect for having two people hang out in the evening and look at photos and videos from the day. If you are looking for a continental or full hotel breakfast included, do note that this property doesn't have that. For me personally with the exception of the Embassy Suites, I am not a fan of most hotel / motel included breakfasts (too crowded, congested - a mad house and often sub par food), so this was not a factor for us. And McDonalds and Panera Break were right next door. I do like McDonald's Egg Mcmuffins and Panera bagels, so that was perfect for us for our two breakfasts before hitting the parks.I LOVED parking the car for the whole stay and just walking over to Disneyland. This place is super close and convenient to the main gate. This property is a basic clean comfortable motel with great proximity to the Disneyland resort parks, no more no less. I was perfectly happy with the property and would be happy to stay here again and would pick here or a property like this again that is super close vs. a slightly more upscale chain hotel/motel that is a longer walk or requires a shuttle.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by going to Disneyland. We stayed at Camelot for 2 nights. Within the short 2 nights, we experience both worst and the best this place had to offer.THE WORST: THE FIRST NIGHT:We checked in on Sunday afternoon around 6pm. The lady at the front desk who checked us in was very cold. No smile, no "welcome", barely a "hello". She was very curt with us, saying just the bare minimum. We did not feel welcome at all. Then we get up to our room #320, which was toward the middle of the property, pass the pool. The room was small (we expected this), typical 3-star hotel room, nothing fancy. Immediately we could hear the family in the room above us.The ceiling was very thin. The family above us apparently has small children, because we could hear more than one person running back and forth above us, sometimes jumping, and the ceiling creaked and bumped with every step and jump. And this did not stop until 11pm. We didn't get to fall asleep until after 11pm, which was way past our bedtime. The next morning, this jumping/running activities picked back up at 5am. I don't really blame the children upstairs, I just wasn't prepared to hear EVERY. SINGLE. STEP. that my upstairs neighbors take, or whenever they turn on their tap or shower or close a door. We could hear EVERYTHING. We finally had enough and asked to be changed room in the morning.THE BEST: THE SECOND NIGHT:After a mostly sleepless night, we called down to the front desk to ask to change room. The front desk guy told us to bring our stuff down and they'll see what they can do. When we got down there, the two guys at the front desk were so understanding and accommodating. They put us straight away to room 430, which is at the front of the property and there's no room above us. This room was much bigger than the other room we were in, and there's a balcony looking over to Disneyland. At night we can watch the fireworks from our balcony. Room 430 was INCREDIBLE, and I couldn't thank the front desk staff enough for putting us in this room. Needless to say, the 2nd night we slept like babies. Also add this to the "BEST" list: the valet guy remembered us and greeted us every time we come in or go out. And we didn't even have a car. He was such a courteous person; he truly made us feel welcome there.The beds at this hotel (in both rooms that we were in) are incredibly comfortable. The bed linens are white, soft, and tasteful (if you see photos of the tacky floral bedding, pay it no heed, those must be older photos with old linens). The location of this place is EVERYTHING. It is 5 minute (or less) walk to the main entrance of Disneyland. There are plenty of restaurants around for every budget. So my takeaway is this: request rooms on the top floor if you can. Front desk staff is 50/50 depending on the person, you may get a cold one, or a friendly one, depending on what time you get in. The location of this place is part of the reason why it's a little more expensive. But if you can get a good room that's not too noisy, this place is well worth the price.
They have a family suite that is very comfortable for a big family. The big draw for this hotel is that it is just a short walk to the crosswalk to Disneyland. It was spacious, more so than the average hotel room, especially near Disneyland. There was lots of closet space, dressers, drawers, counters, table and coffee table. The pull out sofa bed was already made. They had lots of channels on the tv as well as input access for our portable dvd player. No room service and the in-room coffee was awful. BUT, there is a McDonald's a quick 5 minute walk away. The fridge was cold and ready for us, a microwave, a small cabinet to keep food items, and a good size counter with sink. The sink was poorly executed with the wrong type of faucet installed at the wrong distance to the edge of the sink. It was still nice to not have to use the bathroom sink for food prep. The table was huge by hotel standards. Plenty of room to be comfortable with 11 and a double stroller. The biggest thing was that it was CLEAN. Clean sheets, pillows, towels, fixtures, furniture, walls and clean enough carpet. Not fancy, but everything worked as it should, especially the bathroom vent, which is important with a big family sharing only one bathroom. The beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable with no complaints from any in our party. The staff was very friendly. The outside is cute and made my kids feel like we were staying in a castle. They have a little store stuffed full of Disney& California souvenirs and snacks. There is two locations of elevator with stairs. It was quiet and a nice stay even while they were completely booked. We had no difficulty with self parking even though when we pulled in it looked completely full. Parking has a fee that gets taxed at the high hotel rate, consider it in the price of the room per night. The premium location makes up for the parking fee.This is my new favorite Disneyland hotel for ease of getting to the park and comfort.
