The Closest Hotels to Disneyland

Westin Anaheim Resort Hotel is Walking Distance to Disneyland

If top quality accommodation at Disneyland is what you're looking for, Westin Anaheim Resort is your hotel. It's not the only 4-star hotel in the Disney Resort area, but it's popular due to it's easy and short 10-minute walk from Disneyland and Downtown Disney.

All rooms are wonderfully decorated with modern amenities and excellent views, but by far the best views are from the "The Park View" rooms, which offer a wonderful view of the Disneyland theme park.

Alpine Inn near Convention Center and the Park

In a nutshell, this hotel is: close to Disneyland, affordable, and friendly. What more could you ask for? Let's clear some things up. Firstly, unlike the Westin hotel above, Alpine Inn is budget, good for those of us who want to save a little on accommodation.

You won't get a swanky room at this hotel, there's no amazing lobby and there will be some "inconsistencies" from time to time. No problem, so long as the hotel is close to Disneyland, affordable, and friendly, and that it is. Plus, there's something really heartwarming about this hotel. It's honest, it's family oriented, and it's got charisma.

Rooms are simple, comfortable and clean. Each has a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Beds are good, not great, but perfect for a couple of days. Best of all, it's the perfect distance to the park, about a 15-minute walk, which I find to be a pleasant way to start my Disney-day.

Alpine Inn has a genuineness and it really shows in their staff--they're real people and most seem to genuinely want to engage with guests. There's something magically charming about the staff at small hotels.

Howard Johnson by Wyndham Anaheim Hotel Water Playground

If your kids are ever cross at you, I've got a simple solution to turn those frowns into smiles: tell them you're booking a hotel that's 10 minutes walking distance to Disneyland and that has a w-a-t-e-r p-a-r-k!!! Your kids are guaranteed to love you again.

Before getting into the nitty gritty of the hotel, let's talk waterpark, shall we? It's called Castaway Cove and it consists of a huge pirate ship featuring four mini water cannons, a 200-gallon drench bucket, a curvy waterslide, and 13 spray fountains. Parents: just set your kids loose here to let your chilling out begin!

So there's a water park...but how are the rooms, you ask? This review from Booking.com says it all: "The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was modern and clean (and Disney themed), the water park and pool was perfect for my young child, the customer service was top-notch, plenty of dining options nearby, and under a 10-minute walk from Disney (a very easy walk, at that,) the parking lot is only accessible if employees buzz you in, each building only allows registered guests in via key-card, the deposit is very low ($20 for our entire stay), they are great at offering good/cheap upgrade deals in-office when you check in, they give you discount coupon for Mimi’s Cafe at check in, VERY AFFORDABLE".

Sounds like the perfect Disneyland hotel, right? It just might be. I had a hard time finding fault with the hotel when viewing it from with a budget eye--it's a Howard Johnson, it's not meant to be luxurious, but it's clean, safe, modern, well-maintained, AND IT HAS A WATERPARK!

Residence Inn by Marriott at Anaheim Resort

While not easy walking distance to Disneyland, this hotel is pretty close, and still very walkable at one mile away. If you need a fully equiped kitchen in your hotel room -- like my wife always does -- this is your Disneyland hotel.

On the breakfast front, the reviews aren't so stellar. The biggest complaint is stale, old tasting food. Yes, the breakfast is free, and sometimes that can mean there's little incentive to keep it fresh and high quality.
