Reviewed 27 March 2012

This has been my 4th stay at this hotel im usually here for 3 days. I love it so much but ofcourse it isnt always available so i end up at other marriotts booo. The complimentray breakfast is delicious. I love the waffle maker. The kitchen staff are so friendley. The rooms are always clean i never complain about noise. The only thing they need to work on is their Front Desk agents. They don't have a clue where places are and can't give directions from where your at example i was at food 4 less looking for toys r us they couldnt give me directions like really you couldnt google it for me. i was upset about that, so now i just take a gps to take care of that problem. i have found bugs in my room either in bathroom or by the sink. i understand their just small deert bugs not a big deal to me but spiders oh nooo scary . as long as its available i will stay here.

Stopped in here for the second time in the past 6 months. Both times I found the front desk very friendly and helpful. As others have written, the facility is set up in pods of eight rooms, 4 uppers & 4 lowers. They do have the some giant suites with an upper loft and bedroom (was upgraded to this suite the first time...a lot of room for a solo traveler!!). Mon-Wed night they have complimentary dinner - nothing to get excited about, but if you're too tired to find a restaurant in the area (which is a challenge) it is a good place to fill up (includes beer and wine). Complimentary breakfast us served 7 days a week - again nothing to get excited about. The rooms are spacious and clean, although the furniture is starting to show a little wear. The room has a good desk to work at with plenty of power receptacles - wired internet, no wifi.

Pool, patio, fire pit, fitness, laundry - all the things you normally find at a Residence Inn. My only fault is it is not within close walking distance of anything, but would give it a thumbs up.

This property is built in the style of separate buildings, each with a few rooms. In other words, to get anywhere, including to the front desk, you must go outside. If that's not for you, stop reading and look elsewhere.

But if you don't mind that you'll get a lovely room. Had a studio that was a decent size. Full kitchen included. Bed was comfy.

Nothing that you're going to walk to, but shopping is nearby. There's a Stater Bros. supermarket on State College just south of the 91 Freeway where you can pick up stuff.

Wouldn't hesitate to return.

My husband and I used points for our stay at the Residence Inn Placentia while visiting family in the area. I have to say, the hotel was better than I expected as some Residence Inn's I've stayed at are on the older side. We had an upper room (which I loved - no one above us - bear in mind there are no elevators and you have to climb stairs with luggage) and it appeared recently updated. The kitchenette had everything you would need if you wanted to cook your own meals with new appliances (fridge, stove and microwave). There was a nice work station with a ethernet cable to get to the internet (no wifi) which was fine - we didn't need it as we didn't have computer with us - just our smartphones. The bathroom was also recently remodeled with granite like counters and new shower area and eco friendly toliet (two flush options to conserve water). The closets were a little old and you could tell they just painted over them, but overall the room was very nice. The bed was comfortable, there was a nice little seating area if we wanted to watch TV sitting up vs laying in bed and we had daily maid service. The only complaint I had about the room was when the air would kick in, it would make a really loud noise so we overcame that by just keeping the fan running while we were there vs. auto.

The best part of a Residence Inn was the breakfast (we never made it to the evening reception) - you have a great selection - everyday was something different for your hot selection and they always had your staple continential breakfast goodies (cereal, muffins, bagels, yogurt) to have in a nice breakfas/lobby area. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we would definitely come back and stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor but keep in mind, there are no elevators - you have to climb stairs with your...

Stayed in the hotel for five days and have no complaints except one very big one. The rooms don't have wifi built into them (they do have wired) and if you try to create your own access point then they will completely block your internet connection in your room. In today's world of smart phones and tablets this seems so primitive.

We have stayed at this RI a few times over the years. Just got back from a Dec.22/26 stay, a Disneyland trip. An easy 12 minute drive gets you to D-land. And the staff could not have been nicer. Not a single problem. Everything clean, pool was 85 plus degrees, beds comfortable, handy kitchen. What else do you need? Thanks to Steve, Nancy, Yuri, and Joanna. Don't waste hours looking for a place closer to the park, you will pay at least double ( we paid $150/night for a 3 queen, 2 bedroom penthouse suite, or an old hotel/motel that may be a dive. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!!!

I stayed here 1 1/2 years ago and liked it then. Since then, it looks as though they've gone through a complete refurb. It's beautiful. New furniture, appliances, etc. It's just down the road from Disneyland so you're near the attractions without being right there! Loved it.
My only complaint...though they say in their information that there's a local paper available, on the weekend, there was only the WSJ Weekend. That was the only disappointment.
