Searching for a cheap hotel among the many, many accommodations surrounding the Disneyland Resort is a gamble.

Sometimes you lose, and pick a budget motel where the ceiling falls on you while you’re sleeping. And sometimes you win — sort of — by finding a place that is not disgusting or dangerous, but not exactly a place where you’ll want to linger.

I’ve done reviews before on inexpensive hotels where I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality. Stanford Inn & Suites Anaheim wasn’t on that same level, merely meeting expectations rather than exceeding them. For $113 for a one-night, Friday into Saturday stay close to Disneyland, you can do worse.
