Are you traveling to Disneyland or California Adventure theme parks soon and are you trying to find the best place for you to stay? If there are no rooms available at one of the fabulous Disney Hotels: Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel, or Californian Grand, then a good neighbor hotel is the next best choice. There are over 40 good neighbor hotels that offer award winning accommodations, complimentary food, secure parking; some also offer free parking, and many offer the convenience of being located within walking distance to Disneyland and California Adventure Parks. A good neighbor hotel is a hotel that is located off of Disney property and goes through an intensive Disney approval process to be part of the good neighbor hotel list. The hardest part is trying to decide which one of this incredible hotel’s would be the best choice for you.


Good Neighbor hotels can range from economy to superior, pricing, amenities, distance from theme parks, and each has something special to offer their guests. Each good neighbor hotel and particular hotel brand provide something unique such as family themed rooms; some also have swimming pools, bunk beds, upgraded bedding, complimentary breakfast, free parking, shuttle service, full kitchens and there are some who even allow pets.   Several good neighbor hotels also offer package stays that can include hotel stay, park admission, on-site dining and deal as well as many other special surprises.   Many good neighbor hotels such as the Majestic Garden Hotel also make great locations to host banquets, business meetings, and could be the perfect place to have your dream wedding.


If you are looking for a hotel that is not only close to Disneyland but offers many of the same comforts you can only find at home? Homewood Suite by Hilton, Residence Inn Anaheim Resort Area, and Staybridge Suites Anaheim Resort would be some good choices for you. They all offer a full kitchen, a living area, and many other upgrades throughout.   If you are traveling with young kids than a hotel that offers bunk beds may be a good fit for you. Some of the hotels that provide these type of beds are Anaheim Portofino Inn & Suites, Best Western Plus Raffles Inn & Suites, and Courtyard by Marriott Anaheim. Hyatt Place is another option that not only includes bunk beds but also has a privacy for the adults.


Another nice feature about staying at a good neighbor hotel is many of these hotels have a shuttle bus service that drops off and pickup right in front or near your hotel. The shuttle bus service is usually a prepaid service that you can pay at your hotel at the time of check-in, on occasion, some hotels will include as part of their package, and some hotels offer this feature at no extra charge. Shuttle bus service can be a very nice option after a long day or if you have young children who may not be able to walk back to the hotel after a long day of fun. There are also usually taxi’s lined up near hotels and in the exit areas of Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure park’s if you prefer not to use a shuttle bus. You can also always call ahead or have the front or concierge desk help you set up a taxi at a specific pick-up time if needed as well. The city of Anaheim also offers Anaheim resort transit system also known as ART. ART provides affordable and convenient shuttle service from local hotels to Disneyland Resort, and the Anaheim Convention Center and several other local locations throughout the Anaheim Resort District. This shuttle service is especially convenient for those who are not only traveling for fun but may also have to get to work meetings. It is also useful for those who are vacationing for extended periods of time and may have other places to visit.
