Knott's Berry Farm Hotel Amenities

Staying at a full-service definitely has some advantages. The amenities offered at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel are amazing!

Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel Pool, Spa & Splash Pad

Although we visited Buena Park, California in December, we still took advantage of the pool area. The swimming pools is very large and was not overcrowded. My kids had a great time swimming around. Another thing that they loved was the splash pad. It was a blast watching them run through the spraying water and splashing each other. There are plenty of chairs to lounge around in the sun as well. It was easy for me to rest in the chairs while still being able to supervise them while they were playing.

My 12-year-old was most excited for the lighted basketball court at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel. He even brought his basketball with us all the way from Utah!

Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel Fitness Center

The fitness center at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel is larger than most hotels I’ve stayed at. There are more than enough cardio machines to accommodate hotel guests including treadmills and elliptical machines. There are quite a few weight lifting machines as well, but I loved that they also had a large variety of free weights! It makes it really easy to burn off all of the calories consumed at the park during the day.

Guest Laundry Room

If you have traveled with kids at all, you know that they are messy. It doesn’t matter if I pack extra clothes or not, we always need something washed. I love that Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel offers washers and dryers for guests to use. I usually pack a couple of Tide Pods and a couple of dryer sheets so I’ll be ready for the inevitable!

No trip to Southern California is complete without a visit to Knott’s Berry Farm theme park.

Some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever had!

On-Site Restaurant

Speaking of food, the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel has a full service restaurant right on site called, Amber Waves Restaurant and Bar. Amber Waves offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner conveniently located in the main lobby of the hotel.

Breakfast: On our visit, we were treated to the breakfast buffet before our day at Knott’s Berry Farm theme park, and it was delicious! They offered a variety of both warm and cold breakfast items. There was a yogurt station complete with assorted toppings. There were also yummy pastries and a few different cold cereals to choose from. The buffet also included an entire table filled with hot items like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, and biscuits and gravy.

Lunch & Dinner: One of the great advantages of eating at Amber Waves Restaurant is that kids under 11 eat free with a paying adult every day for lunch and dinner! And Snoopy even makes an appearance to greet guests nightly from 6:00 – 6:30 and again from 7:00 – 7:30. He might even show up for breakfast! He did on our visit.

Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel Prices

In my opinion, the price of a stay at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel is very reasonable, especially considering the amenities I spoke about above. From what I saw, the price of a standard room that sleeps 4 is around $100 per night. Of course, this price will go up if you are visiting during a peak time of the year. The price will also be affected by which room you choose for your family.
