Editor’s Review of Candy Cane Inn

As one of the oldest hotels in Anaheim, the Candy Cane Inn is a staple to families who travel to Disneyland Resort and want to stay near the park, without paying the Disney resort prices. Originally built in the early days of Disney, the hotel was to be named Cinderella Inn. When Walt Disney himself objected, the hotel needed to change its name, which happened to take place on Christmas Eve, thus, the name Candy Cane Inn.

Do not expect candy canes throughout the property or a Christmas-themed hotel. Instead, the inn is a traditional U-shaped hotel with outdoor corridors and a simple, comfortable setting, just opposite of the Disneyland theme parks. Guests can walk to Disneyland or ride the hotel's free shuttle, while parked
... more at the hotel, also for free. With a complimentary breakfast and free Wi-Fi included, the Candy Cane Inn is a wallet-friendly option for families heading to Disneyland. less

The U-shaped, two-story hotel offers 171 rooms. Rooms began renovations in late 2014 to swap out carpeting for hardwood-looking tiles, new bathrooms tiles, and new bedding. The hotel does not offer elevators (although it is hoping to add them soon), so families with small children and strollers may prefer a ground-floor room. Room categories are Standard, Deluxe and Premium, and all feature two queen beds, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Complimentary cribs are available upon request.

Standard Guestrooms
At 264 square feet, Standard Guestrooms have two queen beds and can sleep a total of four people.

Deluxe Guestrooms
Deluxe rooms are 308 square feet and can sleep up to five with the addition of a rollaway bed ($10 per night). Connecting rooms are available upon request for guests in Deluxe Guestrooms.

Premium Guestrooms
Premium rooms are 360 square feet, and also overlook Disney's California Adventure, with limited views of the fireworks. Rollaway beds are available for $10 per night in Premium Guestrooms, allowing room for up to five guests. Families staying in Premium rooms also receive extended check-out (2 p.m. instead of 11 a.m.), DVD players, complimentary video rentals and microwaves. They may also have breakfast delivered to the room, free of charge. Connecting rooms are available upon request for guests in Premium Guestrooms.
