We stayed at the Howard Johnson for 10 days and 9 nights. It was a great place to stay and within a close walk to Disneyland. The staff were very helpful, in arranging tours, hire cars, transferred etc. A good clean Hotel. We got the Superior Queen Room, which meant we had a view of the Disneyland Fireworks each night....

First I'll say the good. The beds were clean and the pool area was enjoyable .. but I'm so disappointed to not have received what I paid extra for. We go to Disneyland every year. I have places I love to stay, but this being our last trip for a few years I wanted to have a room with a...

Totally perfect stay! Near Disneyland and we ALL loved the waterpark inside! (From my 5 years old girl to my 60yrs. Old dad). We didn't get to try the food so I can not tell u about it... but about everything else it was the perfect spot for our family vacation. Definitelly would stay there again!

This is a great hotel if you are visiting Disneyland. Only 10 min or so walk to the attractions (or pay for a shuttle bus ride). Several restaurants and a bakery really close by. Lovely children's water park. Swimming pool in a separate area for adults and children who can swim. It would be nice if this pool opened before...

The hotel was only three blocks away , so fairly close after a long day. But we could not see the fireworks from our room. The staff were super helpful with helping us book a car and baseball tickets. The room worked, nothing fancy about it. I would stay there again in the future.

The water playground was so great that my kids would love to stay there again. The pool is separate from the water playground, which is great for people who want to avoid screaming kids but was a drawback for us. We could not enjoy it because we had to stay with the kids at the playground. There is one person...

We stayed at HoJo in early April for 2 nights. It was close to Disneyland which was fantastic and the splash park was amazing for my 3 and 4 yr olds. The rooms, although décor a little outdated, were spacious and clean, and the coffee machine was a brilliant addition. We were advised that the fireworks from Disneyland was visible...
