We kicked off our summer with a fun long weekend stay at Homewood Suites Main Gate. It is conveniently close to Knott’s Berry Farm, Disneyland, and a whole list of other fun places to visit. We entered to a spacious lobby with my favorite high vaulted ceiling and the first thing my kids saw was their favorite Mickey Mouse statue. We were welcomed to a friendly staff with a smooth check-in process. We didn’t have to move our car. We self-parked right by the hotel lobby entrance to where the elevators are to go up to our suite.
It was a very nice surprise to open our suite door to a kids teepee filled with Disney goodies and candy in the living room area. There is a full kitchen with a dining table area good for 2-4 people. The kitchen is equipped with a stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee makers, and kitchen goods to cook right there in your suite. The kitchen opens to the living room which a sectional couch and good size TV. Across is a connecting door to the bedroom with double beds and two cute little elephant folded towels. Beds were approved by my kid’s obligatory bed jump test. There is another TV in the bedroom. The two closet spaces were perfect for all our things. The vanity and bathroom area is a good size for our family. Our suite had the perfect amenities to accommodate our family of 4 comfortably.
A hotel amenity that is on the top of my list is having a complimentary breakfast included. With having kids, this helps so much to start our mornings with ease. We don’t need to rush to get ready and head out for breakfast. While we could cook breakfast right from our room kitchen, they also have complimentary continental breakfast right downstairs by the lobby with a large accommodating seating area for all guest. We rolled out of bed and enjoyed a buffet of different good food each morning including eggs, different meats, and bread, cereal, fruits, a variety of juices, coffee, and more. One of the mornings, the kids were still asleep and I was able to grab a plate and bring it upstairs for them.
A bonus amenity that I loved is besides having a fully equipped kitchen, they’ve made it even more convenient by offering a complimentary grocery service right to your door. It was so simple to put in our grocery order. I just called the front desk to let them know I wanted to use the service. I texted them my grocery list and they took care of the rest. They are very communicative as well. They were unsure about a particular time and had called me to confirm. Within 2 hours our grocery shopping was all done and delivered to our suite. I’ve never heard of this service available at any other hotel. It is the best!
The outdoor area is great! There are two built-in large BBQ grills with plenty of table space to prep our food. The front desk provides with you all the BBQ utensils you need and will turn on the grill for you. There are several tables spread out in the patio area. We combined a few of them to accommodate our visiting family and there were still several tables available. Loved the hassle-free setup here with enjoying a freshly grilled dinner with our family— readily available BBQ grill and utensils, our food to grill was delivered to us, and our eating area was all in the same spot within the hotel.
The pool area is just on the other side of the BBQ grill area. They’ve got a spacious long pool. It is great for doing laps and the kids loved all the space to play with their floaties. While my husband and I hung out on the lounge chairs right by the pool. We were able to relax and still keep a good eye on the kids. There is also a jacuzzi on the other end of the pool and also, my kid’s favorite bean bag cornhole toss game. They also had a bunch of cute large windmill decorations everywhere that my daughter loved.
We would definitely stay at Homewood Suites Main Gate again. We did not want our stay to end. My kids said they wished they could stay here for a 100 years! It was a great experience all around. The suite size and amenities were perfect for our family. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location was in the middle of all the hot spots. Thank you to Homewood Suites Main Gate for a suite summer vacation! We enjoyed the suite life!
