Bottom Line

The mid-range Holiday Inn Buena Park Hotel & Conference Center is a typical chain hotel with a convenient location just a short drive (or free shuttle ride) from Disneyland Resort, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Medieval Times. The 249 rooms are spacious but dated in design. Still, they come with mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and Keurig machines, plus sofa beds or patios in some. Features include a large outdoor pool with a hot tub, fitness center with limited equipment, a casual restaurant serving all three meals -- where kids eat free -- a lobby bar, and ample meeting space. Room service is available during the day. Travelers wanting themed digs to enhance their park visits should try the more amenity-packed Knott's Berry Farm Resort Hotel instead.

Scene

Family-friendly chain hotel with outdoor pool and dated rooms

The Holiday Inn Buena Park Hotel & Conference Center is a typical family-friendly chain hotel with generic interiors and amenities. Decor is largely dated throughout -- think multicolored striped fabrics and carpets, quartz restaurant flooring, and uninspired artwork. Fortunately, most guests stick to just breakfast here or take a dip in the well-sized outdoor pool that's heated. Free shuttle service to kid-friendly Buena Park and Anaheim sights -- think Disneyland and Medieval Times -- mean mostly families stay here. However, some travelers may be disappointed that there are no fun characters or themed decor here.  Business travelers utilizing the on-site meeting rooms also make up the clientele.   

Location

Close to freeways and Orange County’s top attractions 

Sitting near the junction of the I-5 and 91 freeways, the Holiday Inn Buena Park Hotel has a strategic location that gives motorists convenient access to the area’s biggest draws: Knott’s Berry Farm and the massive two-park Disneyland Resort being chief among them. The water parks, dinner theaters such as Medieval Times, and assorted minor amusements typically found in such areas are also nearby. The presence of pro sports venues is an added bonus for hockey and baseball fans: the Honda Center and Angel Stadium of Anaheim are 11 and 15 minutes away, respectively. There’s plenty of free parking as well as a Hertz rental car center on-site. Alternatively, guests can rely on hotel shuttles which provide free scheduled transportation to the mega parks and other popular sites within a five-mile radius. Note that the freeways are famously congested, so all driving times are traffic dependent.

  • Five-minute drive to Knott's Berry Farm
  • Five-minute drive to Medieval Times and Pirate's Dinner Adventure
  • Nine-minute drive to the Disneyland Resort
  • 11-minute drive to Knott’s Soak City Waterpark 
  • 11-minute drive to the Honda Center
  • 14-minute drive to the Anaheim Convention Center
  • 14-minute drive to the Fullerton Train Station (Amtrak)
  • 15-minute drive to Angel Stadium of Anaheim
  • 20-minute drive to John Wayne Airport 
  • 23-minute drive to Long Beach Airport 
  • 40-minute drive to Los Angeles International Airport
  • 40-minute drive to Huntington Beach 

Rooms

Dated, albeit comfortable, rooms with mini-fridges and coffeemakers

Rooms at the Holiday Inn Buena Park Hotel & Conference Center are dated but comfortable, done in an earthy color palette. Expect multicolored striped carpets, tan walls plus olive-green accent walls, generic silver-framed artwork, and traditional medium-tone wood furniture. Note that some past guests have complained of maintenance or cleanliness issues, as well as noise in freeway-facing rooms. Standard amenities are excellent, consisting of individual climate control, Keurig coffee machines, mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, desks or small dining sets, and open hanging space with ironing equipment. Some units add sofa beds or furnished patios. Across the board, the white-tiled bathrooms have shower/tub combos, hairdryers, and toiletries. 

Since this hotel is popular with families, it’s worth mentioning that kids ages 18 and under stay for free when sharing a room with parents.

Features

Key features include a pool, restaurant where kids eat free, and meeting rooms

As most guests spend their days off-site at an area attraction, there's not a ton of alluring features at the property. The highlight on-site is certainly the well-sized outdoor pool, which is heated and has a built-in hot tub. The pool deck and landscaped grounds beyond are big enough to play in, which will likely appeal to kids. For food, the casual Ventanas restaurant serves a la carte fare all day, and kids ages 11 and under eat for free when accompanying a paying adult. Room service is available during the day. A lobby lounge serves drinks and food as well. Snacks are sold at the lobby sundries shop. 

Self-serve laundry facilities are on-site. A spacious but minimally equipped fitness center is available. Business travelers or wedding participants can utilize 15,000 square feet of function space. Parking and property-wide Wi-Fi are both free. Pets are not allowed and this is a non-smoking hotel.
