LAwithKids.com is a major fan of the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel. The proximity to the theme park and the low cost are its biggest attractions. We have stayed at the hotel about ten times over the years and it has been wonderful to be able to take a break in the afternoon and take a quick walk back to the hotel. In contrast to the Disneyland Park hotels, the Knott’s hotel rates are about $100-$150/night. There are usually great packages too, such as $200 for four park tickets and one night at the hotel.
When you compare it to the Disneyland Resort, you are a looking at a venue that is about a 1/3 the price.
