Unfortunately we only had two nights to spend in Howard Johnson hotel, so we didn't get to see much of the hotel. But based on those two nights, room was very clean, beds were so comfy and we liked the fact that it's so close to disney land. Room size was also very good.

Room with a view not quite a view of Disneyland, but fabulous for firework watching. Beds were very comfortable! Convenient to walk to Disney or short drive to Downtown Disney.

While our stay at Howard Johnson Anaheim truly met our needs with cordial staff and comfortable, if dated surroundings; close access to Disneyland, reasonable prices & a fun water playground (all very good things), we were dismayed that there was no elevator access to our 2nd floor rooms. I admit, I didn't specifically look for that option, assuming elevators would...

We have stayed on and off Disney property many times yet this was our first stay at the HoJo. I'm impressed! This will be our new spot. The beds were comfortable! The rooms were clean and spacious! The water park amazed my 3&5 year olds. We had a two queen bed room in the large tower. The gift shop was...

$200+ for a tiny room seems like a bit much, but these were the going rates for a Friday night stay in June. What we loved free parking free wifi Outstanding water park for kids, with 2 slides, a 1 ft pool for toddlers, water guns, and the signature big bucket dump. What we didn't like? It opened at 10am....

My kids 2 and 4 loved the water area and pools. The walk to the parks were less than 10 minutes. The staff was friendly. One issues (that is my fault) would be that we agreed to a second floor room in a building with no elevator- he warned us... but it was kinda a pain with a double BOB...
