My family and I have been on vacation to the DLR quite a few times and we have only stayed at a select few hotels over the years. We usually find one that we like and for some reason end up staying there again and again. We've stayed at some that were very nice and those that were...meh...just okay. Hopefully the day will come where we can stay at some of those big time hotels like the Grand Californian, Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel, etc. because they are pretty darn expensive, especially the Grand Californian, and are not in our budget. But of all the hotels that we've stayed at the one that is probably the best and our personal favorite would have to be the Castle Inn & Suites over on Harbor Blvd. There is just something about that hotel that we like and keeps wanting us to come back for more. The only thing we don't like though is how they have been jacking up the prices. For our family, we don't like to stay at just any hotel with the attitude of "it's just a place where you sleep so it doesn't matter if we stay at a 2$ hotel or not." We are more on the side of it does matter if the hotel is a piece of junk because the hotel is part of our vacation too and we want a good vacation so we'd like to stay at a nice hotel.
But anyways, please feel free to talk below about which hotel you've stayed at that you think is the best.
