SunCoast Park Hotel is a Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel that is roughly a 15 minute walk away from the Disneyland Resort. Located about a block away from Harbor Blvd on S Clementine St., SunCoast is a member of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. Opening in 2019, the hotel offers a beach flare to Anaheim. In this review, we’ll cover the rooms, amenities and location of the hotel, as well as our thoughts on the value that SunCoast Park Hotel offers.
With every Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel Review comes the explanation that the nicer hotels seem to be a little farther away from the parks. Many of the hotels right across the street from Disneyland on Harbor Blvd. are old and locally owned. While there’s a decent amount of cute, and even quality, options there it is hard for those small hotels to keep up with the big chains in terms of what they offer. Thankfully, the hotel options around Disneyland have improved dramatically in the last decade, whether that be an older place on Harbor or a new addition like SunCoast Park Hotel.
Location is one of the biggest factors for us in picking out a hotel to stay in while at Disneyland. SunCoast has a decent, albeit unique, location. Instead of being one of the many hotels that stretch along Harbor Blvd. toward the Anaheim Convention Center, SunCoast will have guests walk along Disney Way and end up across the street from a Cast Member parking lot. A 15 minute walk to the park is not bad at all and the walk is a little dark at night but there are plenty of park guests and Cast Members along the way.
The hotel is also across the street from Anaheim Gardenwalk, which boasts a number of restaurants and a large AMC movie theater. In all, the location is decent but not a mark for or against SunCoast. Being a 15 minute walk from the park is pretty average relative to other hotels in the area and won’t add any difficulty to your trip. Let’s move on to the room!
The hotel offers a King Bed Room or Two Queens Room and I ended up with the two queens because it was cheapest. You can see a good amount of the room in this photo. I like the green(ish) accent wall behind the headboards. The color scheme is rich but doesn’t make the room overly dark. As for the beds, I found them to be comfortable. While I like some of the aforementioned locally owned hotels on Harbor, the chain hotels usually have nicer mattresses. Being owned by Hilton pays dividends here.
Here you can see the opposite side of the room, with a blue wall that has a pattern and photo of the beach. I don’t like this wall as much as it makes the room feel a little more busy, especially with the green behind it. The desk, TV and lamps were up to date, as you’d expect, and fit in the room nicely. Despite the blue wall, the hotel room has a nice look and one that feels more modern.
Here’s a hotel bathroom. The tub/shower combo isn’t ideal but the restroom is pretty large, especially with the sink being in there. The beach décor stretches throughout the entire hotel and even includes the bathroom.
And here you can see the mirror and sink. It’s a low bar to say that the room was clean, but it was! I’ve stayed in my share of old and musty hotel rooms in that area and this was infinitely cleaner than those. That along with it being a modern room was a high mark in SunCoast’s favor.
Overall, I liked the room more than most I’ve stayed in around Disneyland Resort. I’d put it in a similar class as Hotel Indigo, which felt modern and on the edge of being boutique. SunCoast Park Hotel had a clear theme in mind, showcasing some of Southern California’s famous beaches, and that extended into the room in an easy and classy manner.
The rest of the hotel followed that theme while still being comfortable. Here’s a look at the lobby, which has a nice fireplace and couches to sit on. The area is wide open and a good place to relax.
There’s a ton of seating around and the hotel does offer different breakfast options generally. They are all served in the lobby, hence the large amount of seating. While it’s not the nicest lobby I’ve been in, it’s also much nicer and comfortable than many Anaheim resorts.
Continuing on with that trend, SunCoast Park Hotel has a much bigger pool than most in the area. There’s a hot tub and ample seating as well. If you’re spending a longer trip at Disneyland and have a down day, the pool is a selling point here. No, it’s not anything extravagant but it’s nice and worth spending some time at. I guess that’s the selling point of the hotel as a whole. It’s a little nicer than the competition while being at an exceptional price.
I stayed at SunCoast Park Hotel for $105/night. There is a $24 on-site parking fee so factor that in if you have a car. Still, relative to the competition then this is a steal. Other hotels may have better factors like location or amenities but not many of them come as a complete package at this low of a cost. It’s for that reason that we recommend SunCoast Park Hotel and will rank it near the top of our Disneyland Area Hotel Rankings.
Overall Rating – 8.5/10
