I liked the hotel. I booked there after asking for suggestions here on the Disboards and was happy I did. It was cheap, clean, staff was nice, not many amenities, but the location is superb, 10 minutes to the parks gates (including the stops to wait the traffic lights). It is also included in the list of the Disneyland Express stops.
The only downside was the paid WI-FI.

Usually we stay a bit further out but have already booked Plaza Hotel for December trip since I don't want to pay for parking and it will be nice to be so close for my just me and almost 2 year old trip.
Anaheim Plaza does charge for parking, I'm not sure you are referring to the API when you say you've booked the Plaza Hotel, but be aware if you are at the API they do charge $4 per day for parking. Cheapest parking fee in the area. And they will let you stay in the lot the day you check out, so you can check out, go to the parks for part of the day and then leave without paying an additional day of parking.

Internet is not included, it is $10 per day. We just skip the internet and use my smart phone or call the front desk if we need to get more info on something. and yes, it is $4 per day for parking.

We book the $59 a night rate directly through their website, we have also booked by phone but the majority of times we just book it online. It isn't a AAA rate that I'm aware of, we've never shown our AAA card.

We have stayed here multiple times, it's a decent place to stay. Beds are fine for us, rooms are fine. The biggest issue is the water temp seems to fluctuate a lot, it can go from perfect to icy to almost scalding in a matter of seconds. I don't know if it happens when someone in another room flushes, or turns on their water but it does happen. so that's my biggest warning, to watch the water temp. Otherwise it's great, we have stayed there many times and we will stay there again with no problems.

It was fine even if it is older and a little beaten down. It had a nice pool and it was priced well. The counter in front of the bathroom is huge which is nice for laying out your toiletries.
Only complaints were that our sink would back up a little if we ran the water for a while. It was also kind of noisy. The hallways are enclosed and all hard surfaces. Noises from people walking through them are amplified and echo.
The walk the first day to Disney isn't that far. Subsequent days and depending on how many children you have the walk starts feeling long.
Didn't help that we were like opposite corner furthest away from the park though.
Did the breakfast buffet and it was good. Wasn't huge but enough variety for me. Think it was 7.99 and either the kids were half off or free so it was a good deal.

We like this hotel. We have a reservation there for this October. I didn't get quite as good a rate as you did but it is better than the one I had in March so I'm ok with it. lol

I know they offer a AAA rate. They've given it to me in lieu of an AP discount in the past. They didn't ask for a AAA card or our AP's at check in.

I meant pay for parking at Disneyland, lol. Usually we stay at the Lemon Tree which is our absolute favorite and drive to resort (usually have APs with parking included but not this time) but since it's just me and baby, I went for walkability in case she needs a nap or something. We've never been a "take a break" kind of family but I'm letting my Little Miss Stubborn lead the day. Woot!

My sister has stayed here before... she said it is a basic, no frills place. Personally, that's all I need while I am visiting Disneyland! We will be there in October. Maybe we will see you there!!!

Ah, I gotcha. We have the Premium AP too so we get free parking at DL.
