Other Things to Note

What is the Packing House?

The Anaheim Packing House is a favorite place among locals and tourists and it's always a blast to visit. This is basically a building that functions as a food court--there are so many different vendors that, no matter what you're craving, you're sure to find something you like. I love how there's such a diverse availability of cuisines all under one roof.

The Packing House is family friendly. You will always see a lot of families inside the building, hanging out or just grabbing a bite to eat.

Some recommendations to eat at the Packing House:

The Kroft: Try their legendary poutine. They're downstairs. They feature market-inspired sandwiches and variations of poutine--Canadian-French specialty fries topped with fresh cheese curds, homemade gravies and signature toppings. The fries from this place are absolutely phenomenal because they're made from hand-cut potatoes that are double fried to perfection. Those fries are seriously one of the bests I've ever had; they taste so fresh and The Kroft doesn't skimp when it comes to portion size, flavors and toppings. You definitely get your money's worth. You could order those poutines as a meal or share it with a friend if you want to try stuff from other vendors. I was a huge fan of "Chicken Pot Pie" and "Fried Chicken" poutines are savory and flavorful.

Popbar: This is a great dessert/snack option--especially when it's hot outside--because it's basically gelato, sorbet or yogurt on a stick. Think of your favorite childhood treat redefined. You get to choose your flavor, as well as the dippings and toppings.

The Chippy Fish & Grill: There is nothing but good things about this place, especially if you're a huge fan of fish and chips. This fish grill prides itself on high-quality ingredients and fresh fish. Of course, the specialty is the fish and chips, featuring a crisp, golden brown crust and lemon, malt vinegar and homemade tartar sauce for extra flavor.Georgia's: Real deal Southern-style comfort food. Try the fried chicken as well as the BBQ pork ribs. You also can't go wrong with soul-smothered chicken and some of those Brazilian-fusion entrees.

The Iron Press: This place is known for its sweet and savory waffle sandwiches with dozens of beers on tap. Check out their featured waffle desserts.

Hans' Homemade Ice Cream: All of the ice cream is handcrafted onsite at the original Santa Ana store. There are few flavors that you must try. Cookies & Cream, Pecan Praline, and "Maple Bacon. Yum!

Black Sheep Grilled Cheese Bar: If you love all things grilled cheese, you need to go to Black Sheep because it's a grilled cheese bar! Comparing other units in the area? Here are top 10 Reasons why you should at the Kraemer Building:

Nice Property - Needs more amenities

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice little place to stay for the money. It was clean. I liked that there was a couch in the living that folded into a bed, even if it was not the most comfortable thing to sleep on. One of the rooms was pretty small, but it was fine. We had a plumbing issue and the owner responded promptly and had it fixed in a very timely manner. It was quiet and we never heard the neighbors, and hopefully they didn't hear us! :) The AC worked well for us with no issues and the WiFi was sufficient as well. We don't drink, but there was a bottle of wine in the unit. Washer and dryer was nice to have, and I think a small complimentary soap would have been nice to have, as well as dish soap/dishwasher tabs, as an added convenience.

The property is need of some updates. It looked like there were portion of it there were being renovated. There were SMALL portions of the ceilings there were missing wall plates or finishing around the plumbing fixtures. The towels that were provided seemed like towels that just came out of a dryer, meaning they were not all uniform to the place, like you would expect to see when you rent a property. There was also a lack of towels and no extra towels are provided in the unit (which it states that there is only one per guest, but it would be nice to have a few extras). There was no hand soap, or toiletries hand towels in the bathrooms, or even hooks to hang towels on. The extra toilet paper that was in there, were just random mostly used rolls. There were no hangers provided to hang clothes on or even dressers in the room to store your clothes. There were also no extra bedding (blankets, pillows etc) for the fold out couch in the living room. The kitchen lacked adequate utensils such as bowls, mixing spoons, pots and baking type dishes. Not a big deal, but we were short a larger bowl a one point and would have been nice to have larger utensils for serving. No spices in the unit either and only one extra garbage bag was provided.

Overall. We would probably book there again as it was a convenient location to the convention center away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Knowing what we know now, we will go in better prepared. The location was quiet and we had no problems with the parking garage at all.
