Hotels Within Walking Distance of Knott's Berry Farm

1. Knott's Berry Farm Hotel

Price: $120 - $200 per night
Best For: Families & Visitors who want to be as close as possible to the park
For those who want the complete Knott's Berry Farm experience, the Knott's Berry Farm Hotel is really the only option to consider. Aside from being the closest to the park (so you can beat those morning crowds), this hotel is undergoing a gradual, multi-million-dollar renovation (to be completed in 2023), so you'll get nicer rooms and amenities in the near future. Even in its current state, the hotel is one of the nicest ones in the area!

Prices at the Knott's Berry Farm Hotel are higher than most other hotels in the area, but it's still a reasonable value, generally staying between $100 to $200. If you opt for one of their ticket or breakfast packages, parking at the hotel is included, which saves you $25 per day and the time it would take to find parking. It's also nice to be able to just walk back to your hotel in the middle of the day if you need a break from the park.

The Knott's Berry Farm Hotel also features the Amber Waves Restaurant, one of the best restaurants on Knott's property. This restaurant is usually not as busy as the ones in the park or at the California Marketplace, so it's a lovely hidden gem during the busier seasons.

2. DoubleTree by Hilton Buena Park

Price:$150 - $200 per night
Best For: Travelers who expect a higher quality accommodation
The DoubleTree by Hilton Buena Park is just up Beach Boulevard, about a mile away from Knott's Berry Farm. It's definitely within walking distance, but a little farther away than most other hotels on this list. They offer a shuttle to the park, so you can skip the walk altogether. This is arguably the fanciest hotel in the area, and if you're driving anyway, the distance is nothing.

The DoubleTree features spacious rooms that are clean and modern. The area is very safe and has ample free parking for guests. There's even a convenient food market near the lobby, which offers a variety of snacks and drinks, along with some other travel essentials.

This hotel also includes a full hot breakfast that will give you a tasty start to your day. You can also opt to have room service any time of day if you don't feel like going down. This hotel also features a few more amenities, like a gym and bar. On top of all that, you also get to enjoy the famous DoubleTree cookies, usually given out near the lobby!
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Restaurant, Free Parking, 24/7 Front Desk, Onsite Laundry, Business Services, Gym, Bar, Room Service

3. Courtyard by Marriott Anaheim Buena Park

Price: $200 - $300 per night
Best For: Families who want to be close to the park
This hotel is a popular choice for guests visiting both Knott's Berry Farm and the nearby Disney theme parks. It's just under a half a mile away from Knott's Berry Farm, making it a very convenient walking distance, especially for larger families. The building is a bit older, but the rooms are more modern than most in the area.

The rooms at this hotel are mostly modern and clean. It feels like a lower-end Marriott Hotel, but it's safe and has plenty of parking.

Courtyard by Marriott Anaheim Buena Park is also right next door to Starbucks and across the street from Porto's Bakery and Cafe, which are fantastic options for a quick breakfast before heading into the park. There is also a food market near the lobby for all your snack and general necessities. There's also a gym and pool for those who enjoy such accommodations.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Restaurant, Parking (surcharge), 24/7 Front Desk, Onsite Laundry, Business Services, Gym, Bar

4. Quality Inn & Suites Buena Park Anaheim

Price: $100 - $150 per night
Best For: Families on a budget
This Quality Inn is about a half mile from Knott's Berry Farm and is off the 91 Freeway. The building and grounds are a bit dated, although the rooms have undergone some renovation since it first opened. The size of the rooms is pretty solid, though, and the hotel offers some rooms with 3 beds for larger families.

Since it is close to the freeway, this hotel will be a bit louder than the others due to the nearby traffic. We recommend you request a room on the opposite side of the hotel, away from the freeway on-ramp. A nice free breakfast is served every morning, including waffles, pastries, coffee, and a few other treats. This hotel is also just a minute away from a Starbucks and Outback Steakhouse.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Free Parking, 24/7 Front Desk, Onsite Laundry, Business Services

5. Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Anaheim North/Buena Park

Price: $150 - $250 per night
Best For: Families & Travellers who prefer Marriott hotels
This Mariott Hotel is a little farther away from Knott's Berry Farm than the Courtyard by Marriott across the freeway. However, the price per night is more reasonable, and the amenities and room quality are almost identical. This building is more of a tower-style hotel, where the rooms go upwards rather than outwards. Family suites are available, which are the perfect size for families to be comfortable while still together.

The rooms are clean and modern, and the area is safe with good parking (although there is a surcharge). One advantage of this hotel is that it's across the street from Target and a handful of great dining options. There's a little convenience market near the lobby for those who prefer to stay in the hotel. The hotel also serves a great hot breakfast with eggs, pastries, breakfast meats, and more.

The Fairfield Inn & Suites is a longer walk to the theme park, so we don't recommend it if you plan to walk the distance with little ones. With a car, however, the distance should be pretty convenient.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Parking (surcharge), 24/7 Front Desk, Onsite Laundry, Business Services, Gym

6. Days Inn by Wyndham Buena Park

Price: $80 - $150 per night
Best For: Travellers on a budget
Days Inn by Wyndham is conveniently located in the same parking lot as a Target, Wendy's, Denny's, gas station, and a few other retailers and restaurants. Less than a mile away from Knott's Berry Farm, it's a great stay for those who want to be both near the park and near other affordable shopping and dining options.

This hotel is more outdated than the nicer ones across the street, so the difference in room quality is noticeable. The carpets, furnishing, and bedding are reminiscent of hotels in the late 90s, and the walls are a bit thin.

The amenities at Days Inn by Wyndham are also just the basics, with no complimentary breakfast available. Still, it's a clean, decent place to stay for a few days while you're visiting Knott's. The lower price is a great benefit for travelers who don't mind staying in an older hotel.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Free Parking, 24/7 Front Desk, Onsite Laundry, Business Services

7. Best Inn & Suites Buena Park

Price: $100 - $150 per night
Best For: Travellers or Families on a tight budget who want to be close to the park
Best Inn & Suites is just across the street from Knott's Berry Farm and Knott's Soak City. You can see a bit of GhostRider from the entrance of the hotel! It's an easy walking distance, even for larger families, so you don't have to worry about paying for parking at the theme park.

This hotel is definitely a budget hotel. It's old, the walls are thin, the furniture is outdated, and the beds are worn. The area on this side of Knott's Berry Farm can also be a bit sketchy. Although it's still a fairly safe location, there's a noticeable difference between the area around this hotel and the area closer to the 91 freeway.

Bunk bed rooms at this hotel are fantastic for larger families, and the hot breakfast served daily is good. If you're visiting with family and are only planning to stay for a night or two, this is one of the better cheaper options available near the park.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Pool, Free Parking, 24/7 Front Desk

8. Buena Park Inn & Buena Vista Inn

Price: $70 - $120 per night
Best For: Travellers on a really tight budget
I've combined the Buena Park Inn and the Buena Vista Inn because they're essentially the same hotel. These two hotels are located right next to each other on Stanton Ave, just around the corner from Knott's Berry Farm. They're within close walking distance, so it's a solid option for those who would prefer to avoid paying for parking at the park.

Although the Buena Vista Inn is slightly cheaper than the Buena Park Inn, the quality at the Buena Park Inn is also slightly better. The difference is negligible, however, so if you have that extra $10-$20 per night, we recommend staying at the Buena Park Inn.

Both hotels are relatively safe but have older, dingy buildings. The rooms aren't very nice, the beds aren't very nice, and it could be a little cleaner. However, I've stayed at these hotels with my family to save money and it really is fine if you're not picky about being in a more modern hotel. The restrooms work fine, and you'll have a place to lay your head, watch tv, and charge your electronics. It's the bare minimum of what the hotel should offer.
Amenities: Free Wifi, Free Parking, 24/7 Front Desk
