Santa Fe vs Cheynne vs Sequoia Lodge?

Following on from my other thread, I'm starting to feel Newport Bay is a bit expensive at 2000+ it seems expensive for just a 5 night break, so I'm now looking at the 3 above, however the reviews worry me, all the reviews I keep reading on places like Trip Advisor keep saying how the rooms are tired, small, and in need of a massive refurb, Santa Fe and Cheyenne I keep reading about lack of AC and as were looking at going July/August, think it might be very uncomfortable without AC.

I really wanna stay onsite, mainly for being walking distance and since we stayed last time at Newport Bay (first time in 7 trips we stayed onsite) always said we would struggle offsite again as the bus we found is just always too busy.

Also how do these 3 hotels compare with NPB, NPB is the only onsite hotel we have stayed at back in 2017 and it was just stunning.

Why does onsite have to be so god damn expensive!

Well, the value hotels don't have AC but they do have ceiling fans. Cheyenne's theming is amazing, the most immersive in DLP. It's maybe a 15 minute walk from the parks - slightly longer than Newport Bay but not much.

Yes, the rooms are not the last word in luxury, but they're fine. To be honest, you won't spend that much time in your room anyway.

The buffets get busy, but you don't have to eat there. Breakfast isn't included unless you have a dining plan. If you don't have one, there are other options in the Village - Starbucks, McDonalds, Earl of Sandwich, or my fave New York Style Sandwiches. There is also a Starbucks in Cheyenne. Or you can take cereal bars or porridge pots. (Remember to ask for a kettle at reception, as they are not always guaranteed to be in the rooms.)

Of the three, Sequoia Lodge is my favourite. Nearer than the other two, more grown up feel, cosy bar. Yes, it could do with a refurb by now but it's fine for a short stay. If you wanted you could stay Golden Forest level, which would give you extras such as a dedicated check in area, separate breakfast area, free snacks and drinks in the afternoons, a coffee machine in the room, and one Fastpass per person per day.

However, in recent stays our budget hasn't stretched to the Sequoia and we had a wonderful stay at the Cheyenne last November.

Offsite doesn't have to involve buses. There are loads of offsite options in Val d'Europe which are reachable by a 5 minute journey on the RER. Much more pleasant than the bus. We have stayed at the Elysee but there are loads of others - Ibis, Hipark, Adagio and more.

I've stayed in all 3 and enjoyed all 3. They are different. Sequoia is obviously closer but I will always prefer the Cheyenne. It's been recently refurbed, got great theming and the room we had had air con. I've been in winter and summer and found no issue with heat or cold. It's about a 15min walk from Santa Fe/Cheyenne and we've walked it in all weather, with pushchairs and more recently wheelchairs. We are staying in the Disneyland hotel in summer but my next visit after that will be back to the Cheyenne. It's up to you and what you want from the hotel/trip. To me it's somewhere to sleep as we are in the park most of the day. We hardly used the facilities in the sequoia and the New York when we stayed there.

Funny you should say that, as I thought I remembered Cheyenne having air con since the refurb, but we stayed in November so can't really be sure!

Best you dont ask me about hotel Cheyenne... see my report...
SL 100 times over!
No you arent in the room much but a comfy bed is a must. Other than that the theming and location of HC was good enough for a budget

To be honest I was slightly worried about the beds, having read they were hard. We had no problems at all with ours - firm, yes, but perfectly comfortable. Maybe it helped that we are two Pooh-sized adults and therefore had a bed each!

I give pooh a run for his money but still my body couldnt cope. I think we were spoilt as had just recently had our Simba mattress delivered and were sleep spoilt. Had it been before this we may not of been quite so sore and dissatisfied!

I, too, have stayed in all 3 and would stay in all of them again. My least favorite was Santa Fe but we stayed there pre Cars refurb and it was a bit tired and I found it a bit school canteen like in the dining room but, though it wouldn't be my first choice, I wouldn't mind staying there again.
I think my favourite is the Cheyenne because of the amazing theming. I have stayed there in August and not found the lack of air con to be a problem. I have also stayed there in February with several inches of snow on the ground and not been cold in the room. I found the beds to be quite comfy but I am usually that tired at Disney that I could probably sleep on a washing line
I loved my stay at Sequoia Lodge but I don't think it is worth paying more money for. The distance between it and the other two is negligible, particularly when you consider how far you walk in a day at Disney. We thought we might use the pool when we were there but we never seen to have time.
