Verified Guest from Hanford, CA US rated Hotel Indigo Anaheim 8 out of 10 on June 01, 2006
"They say that they are at the Maingate but they are really two or so blocks from the gate which is just a nice walk down Harbor Blvd. We would definitly stay there if we go again. Holiday Inn Express is about 3 miles from the Pond if you're a hockey fan. We are and attended a game."

Verified Guest from Visalia, CA US rated Hotel Indigo Anaheim 8 out of 10 on December 10, 2005
"Stayed there to go to Disneyland. For that reason, only needed a place to go to sleep and this was a decent place. The hotel says it is a non-smoking facility, however it had a strange "smoke smell". The room was fine, but the bathroom looked like it could use some work! Overall, if planning a trip to Disneyland, I would probably stay there again."

"The location is excellent for the attractions; only 5 minutes walking. There are many restaurants around the hotel. This is also perfect. But the best thing is the breakfast. It is more than enough. Muffins, French toast, cinnamon buns, bagels, cream cheese, butter, jam, honey, 3 kinds of cereal, banana, apple, fruit juices, kinds of yogurt, tea, coffee, milk. These were served every morning. It was really great. We highly recommend for all the families."
