We were very impressed with the location of the Howard Johnson, the cost and the very friendly service. We LOVED the splash park with the pirate ship. This was perfect for our 5 and 7 year old. They were entertained for hours between Disney Days.

Great location and perfect for a trip to Disney Land. Staff were extremely friendly and kids loved the childrens pool. Wi Fi was a bit hit and miss but rooms were tidy and clean. Dining options down Harbour Boulevard were plentiful although not a lot of variances. (Recommend dinner at Pizza Press!) Would definitely stay there again.

Dear rataturium, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience with us! We are so pleased to hear you had a good time with us despite coming across a few small issues. We schedule tree trimmings throughout the year in order to prevent blocked views of the Disneyland fireworks show from the room balconies. We...

Nice hotel with great water park for the kids... 5 min walk to disneyland with plenty of food nearby... We stayed on bottom floor and could hear foot steps from above when there kids were jumping around... Apart for that it was a good hotel that is kept very clean and tidy.
