Guest Recommendations
"Parking at this hotel is a disaster. Not enough spaces for the number or rooms."
Richard from Minneapolis, MN US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 8 out of 10 on June 01, 2006
"Phone didn't work, but we didn't care anyway. Elevators were very slow."
Peter from Santa Barabra, CA US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 9 out of 10 on May 28, 2006
"As Arnold would say "Il be back""
Rudy d from Henderson, NV US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 9 out of 10 on April 13, 2006
Melissa from Henderson, NV US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 10 out of 10 on March 07, 2006
"Beds were extremely uncomfortable - could feel the springs. Seems like they were decades old -- my back hurt after sleeping on them and I don't have back problems. Overall it seemed clean, but the quality did not meet my expectations from the online description. Continental breakfast was to be desired. Idea: Put more money into the rooms, and less into the immaculate lobby! Lobby was beautiful -and set expectations for the room too high. Convenience to Disneland was great! There was one female front desk attendant that I thought was snotty & rude. She seemed put out, and talked to us as though we were stupid. She had reddish hair, long."
Terry from Loveland, CO US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 4 out of 10 on February 23, 2006
"Due to construction there were metal plates in the driveway that clanged loudly everytime someone drove onto the hotel's property. This precluded many guests from getting much sleep. Upon arrival, I found my room in disarray due to ongoing maintenance work. "
Verified Guest from Cupertino, CA US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 4 out of 10 on February 11, 2006
"Can't beat the location!"
Patricia from Davis, CA US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 8 out of 10 on January 20, 2006
"The carpet in our room was not clean. There were several large stains and worn marks throughout the room."
Cheryl from Castro Valley, CA US rated Carousel Inn and Suites 8 out of 10 on October 31, 2005
"I've stayed in up scale hotels and nothing beats a place across the street to the front entrance of Disneyland. Hopping on and off the freeway is so easy, parking is free. The hotel is clean, inexpensive with microwave & refrig. I would give it a AAA rating. For the amount of time you spend in the room, it's great deal. A continental breakfast for hotel guests and complimentary newspaper delivered at your door is a quick, enjoyable way to start your morning. Unless you plan to spend a week in Anaheim with part of your time in the room relaxing or by a pool side or at a gym, this is a better way to go."
