Anaheim Hotel Near Disneyland Trades to Sunstone Development

The Mogharebi Group has arranged the sale of the 60-year-old Budget Inn, a 24-key limited-service hotel located at 1042 Ball Rd. in Anaheim. The buyer was local private investor Sunstone Development, which intends to explore long-term alternative strategies for the site including full-service hotel uses.

The off-market transaction completes Sunstone’s 1.1-acre land assemblage at the gateway to the Disneyland Park that included the purchase of the adjacent 44-key Days Inn by Wyndham last year. Sunstone recognized that the combination of these properties was more valuable than the sum of its parts, according to Mogharebi EVP Otto Ozen, who along with SVP Brian Nakamura advised the Orange County-based buyer on both transactions.   

“The economic environment notwithstanding, we had to navigate through a very difficult and complicated process which included approaching a long-term property owner with no intention to sell,” said Ozen.
