One of the most important things to do when visiting Disneyland, is deciding where to rest after playing at the park. Hotel Pepper Tree is a good choice.
I have stayed at the Hotel Pepper Tree twice. In both cases, my determining factor is that they didn’t charge an arm and a leg just to park at the hotel. Bear in mind, I live in Las Vegas. When you stay in a hotel in Vegas, parking is free. In fact, even if you valet, it’s free as well. Just throw the valet attendant a $2-$5 tip and you’re set. So, when Southern California hotels tell me I have to pay for the privilege of parking on their property, it’s a bit disconcerting. Especially, when that charge is $15. Seriously?!
Anyway, lets talk about the things that I like about the Hotel Pepper Tree and a few of the things that I don’t like. Not every hotel can be perfect. 🙂
You can see some of the photos that I shot of my room and the surround property in the gallery below. All other photos on this post came from the Hotel Pepper Tree website.
- Free Wireless Internet
- Proximity to Disneyland and Knott’s
- Parking included, guest vehicle as well
- 100% Smoke-Free Hotel
- Very friendly and accommodating staff
- Rustic/Funky boutique property
- Free Light Continental Breakfast is REALLY light
- Walls and ceilings are thin. You can hear your neighbors
- The light on the patio annoyingly stays on ALL night
- Would prefer to see more upgrades while keeping rustic charm (i.e. mattress)
Overall, I would stay here again. My cons are based on the price paid, $100 per night, to what I got. Simple upgrades to the free continental breakfast and a way to turn off the light on the patio at night would be nice. Turning off the light may seem small, but if it’s 10 pm and I want to relax on my courtyard patio (which I’m paying extra for), I should be able to without a spotlight illumination on me. 🙂 I understand the hotel wanting a certain look to the building at night, but your guest should have an option to turn the light off.
