We will be bringing my 80 year old Mom along for our next visit in October. Since she will be in either her wheelchair or an electric scooter, we want to stay across from DLR in one of the close hotels on Harbor. All the transferring to and from the car seems to be a real pain. It makes more sense to just leave the room and walk.
I prefer to avoid resort fees and like a place that provides a decent breakfast.
We stayed at the Comfort Inn on E. Katella last time and thought it was great. Clean, quiet (on the non-freeway side) and didn't have to worry about enough parking. The breakfast included eggs and sausage and you could make your own waffles. A lot of hotels provide juice, cereal, donuts and such. None of which I eat.
So what's your favorite Harbor Blvd hotel? Are any more affordable than others? I've done a little research and the average seems to be $125 per night before taxes.
