Home2 Suites by Hilton Anaheim Resort is a hotel near Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. This hotel features all studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites, which makes it a good option for families and large groups. In this post will review a standard studio room. Also, it’s only a 15-minute walk to Disneyland Resort. Is this hotel worth staying at during your trip to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure? Keep reading to find out.
Here’s the exterior. You may notice the near-non existent parking lot. There’s just enough room for cars to pull in and unload. Other than that valet parking is mandatory and costs $22.00 per a day. The lobby is clean and modern. There’s a few different seating areas with plenty of room to sit and relax. The lobby also contains a small shop with snacks and drinks. A restaurant and lounge are also located here, but these locations were still under construction at the time of this review. The pool, which is advertised on the hotel’s website, is also incomplete and unavailable. The hotel staff said it would be ready “in a few months.” For now Home2 guests can use the pool at the Holiday Inn, which is located next door.
That’s a big room! The studio contains two queen beds and a queen sleeper sofa. You could easily fit six people in here and have room to spare.
The aforementioned queen sleeper sofa and two queen beds. The mattresses are comfortable, but a bit on the firm side. The pillows are the kind that are extremely soft, to the point where your head sinks all the way to the bottom. Luckily each of the queen beds contain four of them if you need to double up. Another look at the queen sleeper sofa. The nightstand with phone and alarm clock. Now is a good time to mention that there are power outlets and USB charging ports all over the place. Each bedside has at least two, along with another half dozen spread throughout the room on top of the desks and dressers. The desk and chair both have wheels. So you can easily place them anywhere in the room. It’s worth mentioning that this is the only chair included in the studio room configuration. Here’s one of two dressers along with the HDTV. There’s a decent selection of channels, including HBO, ESPN, and even the crackpot “news” channels like OAN and Newsmax. I can only imagine why Hilton (the parent company of this hotel chain) would want channels peddling anti-vaccination and election conspiracy theories appearing in their rooms. Another set of dressers and cabinets. This room is definitely not short on storage. In the closet you’ll find a luggage rack, hangers, and an iron.
Near the kitchenette is a second desk and a lamp.
The kitchenette itself has everything you need to heat up food and clean dishes. There’s also a coffee maker with some tea and coffee. A good selection of plates, cups, and cutlery are included.
The fridge and freezer have plenty of room to fit groceries and any uneaten food you buy in the parks and swear you’ll eat before you go back to the airport, but then never do.
Speaking of the parks, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are only a 10-15 minute walk away. You’ll be entering the Disneyland Resort through the busy Harbor Boulevard entrance, so make sure you leave a bit early if you want to beat the crowds each morning. Along the way you’ll be greeted with a great view of the Matterhorn.
Back at the hotel, here was the view from my room. Any rooms on the Eastern side of the building face the 5 freeway. This unfortunately creates a slight noise issue due to the constant sound of cars driving by. It’s nothing major, but bring some earplugs if you’re sensitive to that sort of thing.
The bathroom is solid. There’s plenty of counter space, a lot of towels, good water pressure, and water in the sink and tub warms up quickly.
Here’s a look at the tub a shower. The only downside to the bathroom is that it has an awful barn-style sliding door. It’s heavy, loud, clunky, and offers very little sound dampening from anything happening in the bathroom. Why are these things so popular?!
Home2 Suites Anaheim has a huge exercise room located on the 2nd floor.
Inside you’ll find weights, exercise balls, treadmills, ellipticals, and exercise bikes. There’s also fresh towels and bathrooms if you need them.
Overall Home2 Suites by Hilton Anaheim is a great hotel with useful amenities. It’s functional, but not flashy, which is a good thing. It’s huge rooms, decent prices, and close proximity to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure make this a great option for families. Some negatives I mentioned earlier were noise issues from the freeway located across the street, and expensive valet only parking.
