    We just got back from two nights at the hotel. When I first checked in I was disappointed. There’s a little bit of dinginess to the place and the room felt like a step up from the red roof. However, the service was great, the front desk people couldn’t be nicer, beds were comfortable and the convenience to knotts and the free shuttle to Disney were fantastic. I actually think we would stay here again if we were visiting the park. If not, probably would find a more up to date hotel.

    Convenient but needs a remodel

    My family and family friends stayed here in two connecting rooms. We were greeted immediately and checked in quickly. Our rooms appeared to be clean but there was room for improvement due to how old this hotel is. This location is in need of a remodel and according to their website one is scheduled soon after our two night stay. The Amber Waves restaurant was good and the food we had was fresh and made to order at dinner and breakfast. It’s a bit over priced but that is to be expected in almost any hotel restaurant. All of the staff in the restaurant at night and during the day were very friendly and service oriented. There was a pool and splash pad and the pool appeared to be heated which is a huge plus for the next time we come to Knotts Berry Farm. We paid slightly less than $300 for two nights for one room with no other extras like breakfast. Not the best price considering the small slightly outdated rooms, but for the convenience of being a few hundred feet away from the entrance to Knotts Berry Farm it can be considered worth it. This hotel also hosts weddings on the first floor and we think the receptions on the second floor. Thank you for reading my humble review.

    What’s Knott to like? Well let me tell you....

    I’ve been coming to this hotel for 15 years, and not much has changed. It’s the lowest family amusement park deal in town. The free breakfast Buffett is good ( But the bacon could be cooked a little longer, just sayin) The problem is the room, no fridge ( Now that’s extra) and the NOISE! The toilets run, the maids vacuum in the middle of the night and you can hear people going in and out. All night. The walls are thin. This has been a consistent problem EVERYtime I go here. Everything else is ok.

    Our family stayed at Knott's hotel for a few days right after Christmas to enjoy Knott's Merry Farm. The staff at check-in were kind and efficient. We didn't pay for a room on the Camp Snoopy wing and I regretted it. By the time we checked in, they were all booked. We did add on a Snoopy plush, which was a perfect little addition. Like other reviewers pointed out, the room was a little outdated but ours was incredibly clean. We loved having a view of Ghostrider out the window. We checked in after a long day on the road and after a short walk to Marketplace for dinner were in bed pretty quickly. We all slept like babies and we loved hearing the laughter and excitement as Ghost Rider zipped down the track. It was the best way to fall asleep for our coaster-loving family. Breakfast buffet at Amber Waves was delicious each morning. A surprise visit from Snoopy was a very exciting surprise for our daughter. There was a great variety of food and there were no disappointments. One morning we skipped Knott's for a bit and went to the pool. It was nice to swim around and also enjoy the hot tub. Every staff member we encountered at the hotel was helpful and cheerful. Knott's has always been my favorite amusement park but it was the first time we've stayed at the hotel. I hope to go back and enjoy the hotel again soon. It was a great stay.

    Very unsatisfied

    The way my event is handled is way below my expectation. The customer service from the catering to the bartender,maintenance, front desk is so bad. I dont know if because im only hosting a 170 people guest for my daughters birthday. But i never feel that they want my business at all. Debbie from catering is so busy that she did t got to see my email for my food selection. Good thing I stop by the hotel to pay otherwise it will be a big mess. Next, front desk agent we try to check in at around 1pm, from the time we arrived i can tell that she doesnt want to help us, she looks annoyed to the fact that we are trying to check in early. Next is Steven from maintenance, the circuit breaker blew in our ballroom, instead of them to just reset it this guy argued and lectured me and the dj about to much power in use infront of my guest. This really upset me, i am so embarassed that my guest have to experience this. Then when i got home, i am putting my baby to sleep then, somebody from the hotel called me again and ask for my vendors information. Apparently, one of the vendor hit one of the employees car. Then, i immediately contacted my vendors to find out what happen. It turns out its the vendor from another event. I know knotts hotel is not a five star hotel but i didnt expect to receive the kind of service just like motel 6. I simply wont recommend because its not worthit.
