Absolutely the BEST hotel I've stayed in!
I currently live in Las Vegas, NV but I was born & raised in Anaheim, CA. I had to go back to my hometown for a week & needed a place to stay with my husband and two year old son. I researched online & found Hotel Pepper Tree. I wasn't really expecting much as I did find it onlilne & things always appear better online than in person.
We arrived & the place is beautiful! They have little fountains all over the grounds, & most even have fish in them! It was beautiful. You wouldn't expect such a lovely hotel in that area. Not that it's a bad area, but you wouldn't expect such a nice hotel to be there. When we arrived, we found that guest parking is not in the front - guests have a more secure & seperate parking area. That made me feel better already!
We got to the room, which we just got a regular King bed suite, & it was big, beautiful, & was perfect for what we needed. It had a hall with a vanity area, a LARGE closet, & a bathroom at the end of the hall. The shower in the bathroom had a rain-head & let out a lot more water than an average hotel's regular shower head. In the closet was an iron & ironing board, along with a tall dresser.The room was large with an attached dining/living area. There was a small loveseat, coffee table, & good size TV. There was also a large desk in the room. There was a nice size FULL kitchen. And I mean FULL! It had a good size refrigerator & freezer. It also had an oven, stove, pots & pans, silverware, coffee maker, LARGE & deep sink...the works. I'm sure it had more, but I just can't remember all it had.
There was a beautiful patio off of the room area. It was long & narrow with beautiful plants & flowers. There was also a small fountain & chairs on the patio. Leading to the patio was a sliding glass door & you could open the blackout drapes to let in good lighting & to view the beauty of the patio.
Housekeeping came by everyday, cleaned the room, & changed the bedding. The front desk was open 24 hours a day & you can call them for anything that you might need. If you need an extra hour or two to check out, they are very courteous & nice, as long as you call about a day ahead of time. The room was absolutely perfect for our family. The kitchen worked out great for me because having a two year old, I could store his milk or juice & prepare his meals. Also, local calls (714 area code) are free, which helped as my family was local.
The whole hotel & the room had an old classic Spanish feel. It was very beautiful and very original. The tables and desks were all made of real wood, & almost looked hand carved. The loveseat was made from real wood & leather. It looked quite original. The hallway, entry way, kitchen, & patio all had large tile. The staff was very nice & would go out of their way to make sure you are happy with your stay. The location is great & near everything. It is near Knott's Berry Farm & also Disneyland. It is also near the famous Dad Miller Golf Course.
There was a restarurant on site. The restaurant looked to serve authentic food & it also was very beautiful on the outside. Didn't have time to go there. The hotel was also wonderful because it was a non-smoking hotel.
There is so much more to say about this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised at the condition, as it wasn't a "roach motel" like others in the area. It was genuinely a wonderful place to stay. I felt safe & secure. It was not noisy & I didn't have any complaints. It would be a great place for families to stay while on vacation, or even couples to spice up their love life. It did give off a romantic & seductive feel. Very lovely place & I would definitely stay there again the next time I visit my hometown. I would recommend this hotel to anyone & everyone. AAA+++!!! :)
