Looking for the best hotels near Disneyland with free breakfast? We’ve got you covered! Here is your guide to finding a free hot hotel breakfast buffet near Disneyland with our top five choices.
For me, continental breakfasts don’t provide me the sustaining energy I need to start a Disneyland day off right!
There are a lot of Anaheim hotels near Disneyland to choose from. Some are only a minute walk until you’re on Disneyland property.
Hotels that offer free breakfast that fills you up are the only hotels that we. will even consider. After a lot of research, I have found what, I believe, are the top five hotels near Disneyland and Disney California Adventure that offer a great free breakfast.
I have picked the top hotels at different distances from Disneyland.
For example, Best Western Plus Anaheim Inn has the best breakfast, per reviews, of hotels right across the street from Disneyland.
The other hotels are a little further. Hopefully, the variety in distance will provide variety in price. I want to help you find a cheap hotel near Disneyland with free breakfast.
A good free breakfast can save you from spending money and time at a restaurant and from paying higher prices in the park. It is nice to have a hearty breakfast for many hours of walking you’ll likely do at the parks.
I’ll explain my reasoning in more detail, but, first, here is my list of the 5 best hotels near Disneyland with free breakfast:
- Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn
- Hyatt House at the Anaheim Convention Center

Free Breakfast Hotels Near Disneyland
Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn
I chose Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn because it is across the street from the walkway that leads to the front gates of Disneyland. It has a brand new breakfast room that includes a balcony that overlooks Disneyland. Reviews indicate that the breakfast is way above average, and has a variety that regularly changes. It has a lot of options.
Some say that this Best Western is closer to the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure gates than some of the Disneyland hotels, and it is much cheaper!
Reviews indicate that the hotel might feel a little dated, is not overly decorated with a Disney theme, and might get a little noisy as families head to Disneyland. Incredibly, it has free parking, which is another money saver. The breakfast balcony can serve as a viewing deck for the fireworks of Disneyland. If you’re lucky you can view the fireworks from your hotel room.
Additionally, the inn lists a 24-hr check-in, baggage storage, a pool, and baggage storage. Baggage storage is helpful if you check-out early, but want to go to Disneyland and then head to the airport or your next hotel in the evening.
The Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn is a 3-star hotel with a 4.5 out of 5 rating on Trip Advisor. Click here to read Tripadvisor.com reviews for yourself. To book a stay at the Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn visit GetAwayToday.com!
Hyatt House at the Anaheim Convention Center
Just down the street from the Best Western PLUS Anaheim Inn is the Hyatt House at the Anaheim Convention Center. It is on the corner of W Katella Ave and S Harbor Blvd. It is about an 8 minute walk to the S Harbor Blvd pickup/dropoff location for Disneyland, not including waiting at lights. It is an easy walk.
If you would prefer, you could walk a little south to the Toy Story parking lot and take their free shuttle to Disneyland. It is less walking overall to go to the Toy Story Lot, but it might take more time. I understand that you might feel that you do enough walking at Disneyland on a normal day, so it might be worth it to use the Toy Story Lot Shuttle.
The breakfast is described as above average, hot, and delicious. Reviews for other hotels nearby referenced this hotel as having a higher quality breakfast.
On the bottom level of the hotel is Walgreens, Starbucks, and Blaze Pizza, so in addition to being close to Disneyland it is close to places to get coffee, pizza, and a lot of other supplies. A CVS is across the street. The hotel itself has the H Bar, which seems to be a good place to watch sporting events.
The rooms are listed as having kitchenettes. Their rooftop pool is heated, and grills are available for guest use. Their pool, workout room, and business center seem to be a good size.
The Hyatt House at the Anaheim Convention Center is a 3-star hotel with a 4.5 rating on Trip Advisor. To read Trip Advisor reviews click here. To book a stay at the Hyatt House visit GetAwayToday.com!
Homewood Suites by Hilton Anaheim Resort Convention Center
Homewood Suites by Hilton Anaheim Resort Convention Center is a long name, and, as you would guess, it is close to Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center. It is only a few hotels down from the Hyatt House.
This is the only hotel of the five I have actually stayed in myself. I enjoyed my experience at this hotel.
I would recommend using the Toy Story Lot to get to/from Disneyland if staying at this hotel. Basically, the Homewood Suites has a free shuttle and breakfast–the free shuttle being the Toy Story Lot shuttle.
The hotel is right next door to the Toy Story Parking Lot, and it seems that the parking attendants and Disneyland staff don’t have a problem with nearby hotel guests using the parking lot shuttle.
I feel like the Toy Story Lot shuttles are larger and more spacious than the ART buses, and you don’t have to worry about it being full or people cramming in on top of you.
Breakfast is good quality, not amazing, but it does have the occasional Mexican food dish. I remember enchiladas one day. There is a good variety, which includes staple hot items like some type of egg and meat. I remember delicious fresh fruit, as well!
Often, Homewood Suites will serve a light dinner Monday through Thursday. It is described as an evening social, small plate. It can be hearty, but there is generally one option for the hearty part of the meal. If you’re picky, it might be risky to plan on it. If you’re not, then it could save you a lot of money.
My experience and other reviews indicate decent soundproofing, which is nice when you have little kids. Rooms include a dining area. The hotel offers a small putting green/mini-golf area, a basketball hoop, outdoor pool, a fire pit, hot tub, baby/toddler pool, grills, game room, fitness center, and electric vehicle charging.

Cambria Hotel & Suites Anaheim Resort
Cambria Hotel & Suites Anaheim Resort is a newer hotel. When I last looked at the lot on Google Maps it showed a construction site. Cambria is located to the southeast of Disneyland. It is about a 0.9-mile walk to the S. Harbor Blvd drop off area.
You could use ART, Anaheim Resort Transportation to get to Disneyland. In my experience, you’ll want to make sure that your hotel is one of the first stops, or it might be full before it gets to you. Additionally, it can be slower during peak times. An Uber/Lyft type of service would be a few dollars more, but it would likely be a better option. Though, the drop off/pickup area becomes congested during peak times.
Since the hotel is newer, there weren’t a ton of reviews for the breakfast. However, all of the reviews that I saw were positive. The described the breakfast as having a lot of options and being able to handle a large crowd. I think it is always helpful to remember it is a free breakfast.
The main reason I have added this hotel to the list, as that the hotel seems to almost be a destination in and of itself. It has a free water park with water slides, a restaurant, a movie wall, a putting green, other on-site eateries, two showers, and their mirrors can be accessed with Bluetooth to play music while you’re in the bathroom.
Additionally, there is valet parking, room service, and a fitness center. The reviews repeated mentioned Larry, who I believe is a very helpful valet. They make Larry out to be an awesome guy. Hopefully, he still works there!
The Cambria is a 3-star hotel with a 4.5 rating on Trip Advisor. To read reviews on Trip Advisor click here. To book a stay at the Cambria visit GetAwayToday.com!
Ayers Hotel Anaheim
The Ayers Hotel Anaheim is not exceptionally close to Disneyland. However, it only takes about an 8-minute drive to travel between the two locations. Additionally, it is located right next to the Honda Center and the Angels Stadium.
The breakfast is described as excellent to above average. One review even mentioned to-go breakfast bags being available. Photos seem to show a decent size breakfast seating area. Some critiqued the limited non-dairy options. Generally, breakfast options were good.
I mostly picked this hotel because the breakfast reviews were so positive, it has an interesting location next to sports stadiums, and it might be an interesting option for someone willing to take an Uber or Lyft to get to Disneyland.
Ayers has a pool, business center, fitness center, available inter-connected rooms, and on-demand movies.
The Ayers Hotel is a 3-star hotel with a 4.5-star rating on Trip Advisor. To read reviews on Trip Advisor for The Ayers Hotel click here. To book a stay visit GetAwayToday.com!
