Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel – Stovall’s Inn

| April 3, 2014 | Reply

This is part of a series of blogs and coordinating DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast segments focusing on the off-property establishments near the Disneyland Resort collectively known as Good Neighbor Hotels. This time I take a look at the Best Western Plus Stovall’s Inn located at 1110 West Katella Avenue.  I talk in detail about my stay there on the April 3, 2014 podcast, but continue below for pictures and information.

Stovall’s Inn has been a fixture in the Disneyland Resort area since the 1960s.

PRICE

I visited Stovall’s Inn on a Thursday night in early March. With a AAA discount, I paid $123.20 per night before tax, fees and parking ($154.14 per night total) for a two double bed room.  This seems to be the average rate for this hotel.

LOCATION

Stovall’s Inn is on the corner of Katella and West, next door to a Coco’s restaurant. It’s only a 10-15 minute walk to the Disneyland Resort, so that is probably your best option, but there is a Anaheim Resort Transit stop right outside the hotel.

PARKING

Parking is $10 per night. The parking lot is shared with the restaurant next door, but hotel guests are given priority.

BEDS

Available room configurations include two double beds, two queen beds or a single king bed.

ROOMS

The room was clean and seemed like it had been redecorated fairly recently, but to me it seemed very dark.  The room featured a small desk, a dresser and an armoire.  It included a small refrigerator, microwave, small coffee pot and television.

HOUSEKEEPING/MAINTENANCE

I had no issue with housekeeping or maintenance.

BATHROOM

The bathroom was what you would expect for a motel, with the sink outside of the toilet/tub area.  There was plenty of countertop and storage space.

The soap and conditioning shampoo were basic. The towels were of moderate quality.

POOLS

Stovall’s Inn features two pools, plus a hot tub and wading pool.  The problem I had with the pool area is that it is right next to a busy road.  I’m not sure that I could relax by the pool here.

The good news is that the Coco’s restaurant next door offers pool-side dining.  The Coco’s menu was also available as room service, with a $3 service charge and 15% gratuity.  The menu was limited, but the prices seemed reasonable.

WIFI

WiFi was provided free of charge and worked perfectly.

BREAKFAST

Free breakfast is provided 6:00am to 10:00am in a dedicated room located behind the lobby.

The breakfast featured plain bagels, plain cake donuts, muffins, apples, yogurt, scrambled eggs, sausage and waffles.  I really felt that Stovall’s Inn sacrificed quality for the sake of a wider selection of items.

They could have left out the frozen-style waffles and greasy sausages and given me a wider selection of fruit and pastries.  I would’ve left more satisfied.

 

I  hope that you can use this information to help plan your vacation. Remember, this is based on a one-night stay in one room of the hotel. Be sure to check out the podcast for more thoughts.

Stovall’s Inn is a very convenient option to the Disneyland Resort.  It’s in a great location and the rooms are fairly nice, but be aware that the price may be higher than similar nearby hotels.  That said, by all means, have your travel agent check out Stovall’s Inn to see if it’s in your budget for your next Disneyland Resort vacation.
