My Favorite 5 Hotels Near Disneyland

Hotels Near Disneyland

Looking for hotels near Disneyland can be more difficult than you’d think. There are lots of choices to make.  Walking distance or free shuttle? Free breakfast or good breakfast?

First ask yourself: What do I want in a hotel? 

  • If you plan to stay at the parks from open until close, you might not need as much out of your hotel.  A place that's clean and close is probably all you need since you'll basically want to sleep and shower there. 
  • If you plan to go back to your hotel for a midday nap or swim, you may want something more plush.  It can make your whole trip more fun to have a pleasant place to recharge and relax, with a hot tub, good food, happy hours, and so on.

This hotel near Disneyland has huge rooms-- 2 queens and a fullsize bunkbed.  You can see and hear the Disneyland fireworks from some of them.

This is a modern hotel with everything you'd expect and no surprises.  The rooms are clean, quiet and spacious.  If you've got little kids, get the "King and Kid's Twin Bunk Bed Specialty Room with Sofa Bed"; there's a pocket door you can close which is great for nap time plus a second TV. 

It's about a block and a half from Disneyland on the same side of the street which makes the walk a little easier, or you can take the shuttle.  Click for rates and more photos.

Howard Johnson's is geared towards kids and families.  A highlight is the "Castaway Cove" pool and sprayground. When you can drag your kids away from that, you're just a few minutes' walk from the Happiest Place on Earth.  There's also a game room with air hockey and arcade-style videogames.

The rooms are nicely decorated and soundproofed against the nearby freeway. There is no continental breakfast but it's close to restaurants like Mimi's and McDonald's. If my kids could eat McDonald's the whole trip they'd be ecstatic.  I enjoyed being able to pick up a McCafe on my walk to the park.

Parking: FREE!
Free Breakfast?
No
Walk to Disneyland: 10 minutes
Hotel Category: Moderate

5. Hotel Indigo

435 West Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92802-3607

Of all the budget hotels near Disneyland, this groovy, contemporary one is my favorite.  It's got a boutique feel and is inexpensive without feeling cheap.  The rooms come with refrigerators, Keurig coffee makers, and Aveda soaps & shampoo.  The beds are comfy and the floors are easy-to-clean hardwood, meaning no icky dirty carpet.  The bathrooms are clean but they do not have tubs.  You can see the Disneyland fireworks from some rooms or the small hotel pool.

The restaurant in the lobby, Chambers Bar & Bistro, is very good, fairly priced, and does a great breakfast, dinner, and Happy Hour (no lunch).

Parking: FREE
Free Breakfast?
No but their restaurant Chambers is good
Walk to Disneyland: 15 minutes
Hotel Category: Budget
