I highly recommend the spring hills hotel bar. Hakem is the best bartender in Atlanta hands down. He knows his way around the bar and kitchen. He will treat you like a friend instead of a number. Thank you and we will def be returning.
Great Quick Disneyland Stay
Sep 02, 2023
We had a wonderful quick Disney trip and stay at this property. You can tell it’s been recently renovated as the lobby is quite lovely. The continental breakfast was plentiful, clean dining area and not too busy. Rooms were spacious and we appreciated the connecting rooms for our young kids to run back and forth. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful for all our questions. Now, about the distance. We chose NOT to walk to Disneyland (again, young kids), but there is a bus stop right outside or the Uber was only $7. I actually liked being slightly away from the park itself. There is a nearby Starbucks and CVS if needed. Overall a great stay for our quick trip.

We have enjoyed the SpringHill Suites Auburn (on the way to Lake Tahoe from the Bay Area) so decided to give this property a shot for our most recent Disneyland trip.
The room is above average in size but by no means a true suite other than it has a desk that kind of divides the room between the two queen beds and a couch with a rollaway underneath it. However it was fine for our family of four and besides we were in the room for under 8 hours a day visiting Disneyland the other 16. TV is smaller than average and not in a great spot for viewing from the far bed--but we didn't use it anyway.
Linens are above average for the price point with a decorative top sheet giving the feeling of a Duvet cover. The linens and towels felt new and the bathroom was well stocked for a family of 4. Shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The walk in closet with a door was nice to have for someone to change in as well while we got ready.
The pool is small but the area was clean with towels and lots of chairs/tables and a 6 person hot tub. Good enough for the kids to jump in and frolic on our arrival day. Water seemed well taken care of.
Check in was smooth and our room was ready at 4PM when we arrived.
The breakfast was as advertised--simple but something for everyone inculding scrambled eggs, sausage patties, make-you-own waffles, hot oatmeal and an assortment of bread, muffins, cereals, coffee, tea and juices. It opens at 6:30 AM on weekdays which gives you plenty of time to rope drop an 8AM disney opening.
What you're here for: How far is it to Disneyland? 17 minute walk to downtown disney for us with another 8 to the park entry plaza (Espalande). Fortunately it's an easy, relaxing walk. The hotel is Northwest of Disneyland. You bascially cut through a Holiday Inn parking lot and then walk 10 minutes on a lighted sidewalk on the perimeter of the disney parking garage. Then you cut in and it's another 7 minutes to the West security entrance to Downtown Disney (where the rainforest cafe used to be--now a Star Wars store). Because there are only a handful of hotels on this side of Disneyland it is very calm and quiet which was nice compared to the hordes on Katella.
Once inside security (which had zero lines at 7:20-7:30 AM each day) it's another 8 minutes to the entry plaza for Disneyland and CA Adventure. In the end, you can definitely stay closer than this hotel, but it was absolutely fine for us. We did take the tram back one night to the disney parking garage which the front desk told us would cut our walk in half--I would not recommend it. This requires crossing back over the street with a combination of escalators and a footbridge that we thought hardly saved a step.
We would consider staying here again based on the low price we paid, the timing of the breakfast, and the easy walk. If your little ones like the small water parks these hotels tend to have, you might want to consider a different property.
Great option for Disney

Great hotel that is modern clean and convenient for Disney. Room was large and spacious with good amenities. It’s around 25 min walk to main gate of Disney but there is a convenient bus that stops right outside. Paid for a fireworks view room but would say this is unnecessary as the view was just the parking lot and a few trees. Only downside was no recognition of Marriott preferences for high floor or recognition of Gold status.

We stayed at the SpringHill Suites for our Disney Land trip. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the parks. Walking back at nigh with family we felt safe and the area was well lit. The breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful in answering any questions that we had.
