Convenient and Good Value

Folsom, California

This is a landmark hotel in Buena Park, and if you are visiting Knott's Berry Farm (which I recommend), you should definitely give this hotel a try. Apart from its being literally across the street from the park, the hotel is well-maintained and has very good service. Rooms are currently being updated, so if you go in the next few months you can expect a little inconvenience, but not much. And if you book a package through the hotel, kids eat free in the hotel restaurant. Overall, this is a very good option for the area.

Very pleasantly surprised!

Five - star rating based on value for price, staff and exceeded expectations. After reading the lousy reviews here we definitely had low(er) expectations for our last minute stay at Knott's Hotel. But the location and a great deal on a package that included park tickets, breakfast and parking led us to take a chance - and we are very glad we did. I think the one, two and three star reviews have to be of a different hotel. Our low expectations were completely unfounded. Sure, the amenity list is definitely that of a 3.5 star hotel, but the cleanliness and service were of a quality we have not encountered in many four and five star properties. Our King room was as represented on the website and had none of the issues others have cited - it was incredibly clean, well lit, with a comfortable bed and a nice(although standard def) tv. Rooms on all sides were occupied with many small, excited children yet the room was quiet. Yes, there are no microwaves and refrigerators in the room, but this information is readily available on the hotel website so this shouldn't come as a surprise. And a refrigerator can be requested. Now, they are doing lots of refurbishment, so maybe we scored one of the newer rooms.YMMV. But best of all, and the reason for the extra stars, was the amazing service. I cannot tell you how surprised we were with the level of sincerity we encountered in the service from the staff. To a man(or woman), everyone we met, from the parking lot attendant to the housekeeping staff was cheerful, kind, and more than willing to help. When we asked for a room change for a better view, even the housekeeping employee stopped us to ask if anything was wrong with the room. The front desk agents were sincerely concerned that we be happy with our room and did everything in their power to make it so, even following up to assure our comfort. Restaurant staff the same, from the bartenders to the hostess - efficient, pleasant, and genuinely happy to be of service. Breakfast was an even bigger surprise; the buffet was plentiful and fresh with servers happy to help supply fresh toast, juice and coffee. As a travel agent, I have stayed in many five star hotels all over the world with names like Fairmont and Ritz Carlton. But the sincerity of the service provided by the staff at Knotts' - even extending to the theme park itself - definitely rivaled that of many of those properties and even excelled in some cases. I would even go so far as to suggest this hotel to my clients looking for a cost - effective alternative to the overpriced Anaheim properties near the "other theme park". Great job, Knotts. Keep it up.
