Cheap Rooms for Rent in Anaheim, CA
There are a lot of accommodations available at Disneyland Park or Disneyland-owned hotels and motels close by. This article, however, will talk about rooms that you can rent at very affordable rates in the surrounding area close to Disneyland.
Anaheim is a large city and if you can rent a car, you save quite a bit of money instead of renting a hotel or a motel room very close to Disneyland.
So, what’s the deal, you may ask. Here’s the thing. The farther away you stay from Disneyland, the more money you save. If convenience isn’t really your number one priority, but saving money is, then the distance will not be a problem for you. You will be more excited to know that you will be saving more than 50% of your money that you would have spent on hotel rates.
“Cheap rooms” in this context is relative. It depends on the location and the level of convenience.
A lot of people who book accommodations in Disneyland want to be on Disneyland proper. In other words, they want to just wake up, put on their clothes, rouse the kids, and everybody gets together. When the main doors open at the lobby, they can see Disneyland from where they are standing, and they just need to make a short walk towards the park. Talk about convenience and ease.
Well, if you are more than happy to let go of that and possibly jump in a car and go some distance from your rented room to Disneyland, then you can save a lot of money. We’re talking about at least 50%. In fact, if you use Airbnb right and you plan your trip to Disneyland correctly, you can save up to 70%.
You must understand that the rates of a lot of the rental rooms near Disneyland are dependent on the influx of guest going to the park. In other words, if you’re going to book a trip at peak season for this theme park, expect to pay top dollar. We’re talking about summer bookings for rooms that are several miles away from Disneyland.
You would think that since the location is so inconvenient and so far away from the theme park that you can save quite a bit of money. Well, you will still save a lot of money compared to the resort hotels right on Disneyland or the surrounding hotels, but it’s not going to be as big as you expect. Why? Everybody is trying to do the same thing. The high demand is driving room rates up and you’re not really going to get a good deal. That’s just the way it is.
On the other hand, if you play your cards right and you book your hotel in the dead of winter and taking advantage of the lowest guest season for Disneyland, you are in for great savings. If you think that the hotel rooms next to Disneyland drop their prices, how much more the Airbnb rates for that same time of the year. It’s crazy. Just as crazy as when it goes up during the peak season, it’s also crazy going the other way. You can save up to 80%.
So, schedule your vacation accordingly. The best way to do this, of course, is to look at what else is going on at Orange County during the winter and pair that up with possible attractions at Catalina Island as well as further north. I’m talking about Hollywood, the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, and surrounding regions. Putting together a well-designed itinerary, you get to maximize a tremendous amount of savings.
So, to wrap it all up, you can book your trip during the off-peak season bearing in mind that there are various things that you can do around the area apart from visiting Disney, check in at a hotel or a rental room not too close to Disneyland to get better prices, and rent a car to drive you to your destination. Overall, you save money on off-peak rates and lower rental rates to offset your car rental.
With that out of the way, and if you don’t want to take the Airbnb route, here are some cheap rooms near Disneyland Anaheim.

Please understand that this is a good combination of motel rooms and lower-level hotels. Don’t let the label throw you off. Just because it’s a motel room doesn’t mean that it is smoky, or that it’s badly maintained, or somewhat sleazy and nasty.
The closer the motel room is to Disneyland, the higher end it is. It’s more likely to be newly renovated or in a completely new complex. Also, the closer you are to Disneyland, the pricier it would get. So, you might be staying at a motel, but you probably would be paying lower-end hotel rates. Regardless, these are the cheapest rooms offered by motels and lower-level hotels near Disneyland.
