Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel – Camelot Inn

| August 15, 2014 | 2 Replies

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 Camelot Inn and Suites located at 1520 South Harbor Boulevard. I talk in detail about my stay there on the July 24, 2014 podcast, but continue below for pictures and information.

The Camelot Inn benefits from a great location, located directly across from the Disneyland Resort, right next door to a McDonald’s.

PRICE

I visited the Camelot Inn on a Wednesday night in early-July.  With a AAA discount, I paid $109.00 per night before tax, fees and parking ($134.55 per night total) for a two queen bed room.

LOCATION

As I said, the Camelot Inn is directly across the street, so it’s just a short walk to the Disneyland Resort.  There is no need to take a shuttle or drive to one of the Disneyland parking lots.

PARKING

Parking is $9 per night.  Self-parking is pretty convenient, but valet parking is also available.

BEDS

The Camelot Inn offers the choice of either a King Bed or 2 Queen Beds, both were the same price.  They also offer a King Family Suite that includes a King Bed and Sofa Bed.

ROOMS

The room was actually nicer that I thought it was going to be.  Fairly simple though.

I did have a couple of issues with the room design though, one being the lack of electrical outlets near the desk, the other being the two large chairs blocking the window and the air conditioning unit.

HOUSEKEEPING/MAINTENANCE

The only maintenance issue I noticed was the hot tub…more on that later.

BATHROOM

The bathroom was pretty standard, with the tub and toilet in one room, and the sink outside in the main area.  It was simple but featured plenty of space.

The soap and shampoo were very nice…mango and papaya.

POOLS

The pool is on the 4th floor and is a very simple rectangular pool with a small hot tub.  A small gazebo is the only shade.
The whole area, especially the hot tub, could use a bit of TLC.  At night however, the pool area features a great view of the Disneyland Park fireworks.

WIFI

WiFi was provided free of charge and I had no issues with it.

BREAKFAST

The Camelot Inn doesn’t offer any food on property.  There is a small gift shop at the front of the property and, interestingly enough, a location to rent electric scooters, but no food.

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.

I really don’t know what to make of the Camelot Inn.  The rooms are very nice and location is excellent, but I really wish they would have continued the theme into the rooms just a little, plus the amenities just aren’t there.

Still, if you are looking for somewhere with a great location and a nice room and don’t care about the pool or a free breakfast, you or your travel agent should check out the Camelot Inn.

    I don’t know…the pool area looks kind of grungy, and in the photo of the front door to the room, you can see light coming through the bottom and along the side (which means outside (hot) air, noise, and bugs would be able to get in, too.

    We have stayed there a few times, you can`t beat it for the price. The pool is ok, but lets be honest who goes to Disneyland to go swimming ? Pros: 5 minutes to the gates of either park, comfortable beds(and recently replaced I believe), free wifi and great views of the fireworks. Cons: Lack of food choices, plug-in outlets (you nailed that one), noisy A/C units ( but it does drowned outside noises so its a toss up). Its not a Disneyland Hotel, not even close but it is very reasonably priced and clean.
