We have stayed 3 times at the Howard Johnson in Anaheim and have never been disappointed. The hotel is in close proximity to the Disneyland park so it's only about a 10-15 minute walk. There are good restaurants close to the hotel also.

This hotel was great. We are a family of 5, and our room was big enough to put a rollaway cot for our 6 yr old daughter with plenty of room to spare. The room was clean with a mini fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. The kids loved the water park, complete with large hot tub, and the other...

This hotel was good but two things will keep me from staying here in the future. First off, the Wifi in our room was so slow that it was unusable.

We have a 2 year old and a 6 year old. The family room was perfect for us (and my mother who graciously slept on the bottom bunk). Walk to Disney takes hardly anytime (never timed it). You walk past McDonalds, IHOP and a few other restaurants along the way. Parking was never an issue and only 10 minute drive...
