Knotts Berry Farm Hotel is in middle of a long remodeling. Parking lot has shifted to accommodate instead of parking in front where the entrance as of this review is closed up one goes around the back to enter. The current office as of my stay is in the old gift shop at the back and the lobby was completely closed off so it and the restaurant were in active reconditioning behind a temporary wall built to block off the construction zone as one walked from the temporary check in to the elevators to get to one's room. I had one of the newly remodeled rooms and it faced away from the park and over the pool area and parking lot to the west. I never had an issue with the old rooms and the theme park pictures (wonder what they did with them) and I'm a bit concerned about losing the neat Snoopy rooms. HOWEVER, though they have gone to a farm motif, I must say I loved the room. Everything was in super new and great condition, the chairs and furniture and bed were all super comfortable. The hotel was quiet I never heard a peep for a Friday night in August that's pretty good, though the park had been quiet during the day as well only picking up some in the evening. I have no complaints on the hotel really it was super clean and made me feel quite at. home in the room which now includes a small fridge as well which I believe not all rooms had before. So yes this is highly recommended I just hope they don't keep raising the price out of reach over time when remodel is finished.
never again! not even for 1000 alpacas!

ive been to this hotel many many times over the years and always had a nice stay.
this time however was different and strange.
the hotel is still in the middle of remodeling. we got one of the new rooms and although small it was a nice look and large tv.
we typically put do not disturb on the door as we were only staying a few days and dont need new bed changes daily. one of the days we come back from park and there is a note said they did a welfare check because we had the no not disturb check on for 48hrs. never heard of such nonsense in my life. i check in with the front desk and they say its in the paperwork i signed in with. i didnt see it but there is a ton of small writing but it was not told to me by the front desk when i checked in. then i was told that all the hotels in the area are doing this. weird ive stayed at over 50 different hotels in this area and this has never happened. the next hotel i go to i ask the front desk and they look at me with a confused look. they had no idea what i was talking about and let me know they would not enter my room if i put the do not disturb sign on the door. my friend who was staying with me at the same time in different room. they were just coming in with housekeeping even with do no disturb on it and then they did a wellness check anyway. like what are they looking for? and why even put a do not disturb on the door if they just going to ignore it.
im wondering what the heck is going on at this place? i could see if i was there a full week or something but this was a few days. i guess they think we were doing something wrong but i dont know why? never seen anything like this before and never since. no way i would come back here again.
they could have been upfront about this at check inn. with all the other bla bla they do this would be important to bring up. i also brought up they always wanted to come in after we leave. no matter when we left thats when they wanted to come in.
they couldnt pay me to come back to this place.
