Downtown Anaheim features sites related to local history and historic structures, while the city's suburbs include multiple freeway arteries, Anaheim Stadium and Disneyland, an internationally known theme park. The number and types of accommodations and the city's central location make Anaheim a popular choice for travelers to Orange County.

Travelers also have quick access from the hotel to shopping at the Anaheim GardenWalk and Downtown Disney District, located only a short drive from the hotel. The Econo Lodge Maingate, a budget hotel just over two blocks from the Disneyland entrance, provides access to the freeway and main streets to other Orange County amusement attractions in nearby Buena Park.
