Great stay!

Posted 25-Oct-2014
Cons: Although it appears that there have been some renovations to other buildings, building 2 could be updated as the rooms are starting to look dated.
Location: Disneyland.
Great location and good pools for children and adults. Although front desk staff were satisfactory with checking in and out, the cleaning staff were great (friendly and efficient).

Easy walk with kids to Disneyland entrance gate

Posted 21-Oct-2014
Pros: Close proximity to Disney front gates. easy walking distance.
Cons: Have cleaning staff report items that are in need of repair or replacement to maintenance staff. Loose toilet seats and doors, are an easy fix
Location: Great family restaurant (MIMI's) is a 1/2 block away and was worth a few minutes wait time.
Two night stay, 4 adults with two children. Both rooms were ready before check in time. Front desk staff were efficient and very helpful. Rooms were on the 1st floor facing the freeway, but the room design eliminates any traffic noise. Beds were comfortable and the rooms are a bit dated. Toilet seat was loose, the toilets flush like a freight train with a very loud pressurized noise. The exterior sliding patio door would not lock. Being on the ground floor I saw this as a security issue and notified the front desk. Within minutes a maintenance worker attended and worked on the door, upon return I checked the door and it was still non functional after opening once. The HOJO advertises that they "Strive for five" (Stars),which is easier said than done when a quick physical check of a room, to ensure all items function properly, would take a few minutes at most. I would give it a 3 star rating at best. Waterpark is very small but great for the little ones to play in. HOJO is situated within a few minutes walk to the Disney front gate and there was a lot of Police presence in the area so it felt very safe to walk the streets after the park closing time.

Outdated but comfortable

Posted 14-Oct-2014
The overall hotel is VERY outdated and in need in renovation. The hotel is pretty much of a motel 6 caliber. Thankfully we were only there one night. Also, the hotel front desk staff were very nice and attentive so bonus points there.

Pros: Very children friendly.
Cons: The hotel has a rodent problem in the outside landscaping.
We always enjoy our stay at the Howard Johnsons. The grounds are well groomed. The pools are excellent. The room is comfortable. The staff are friendly and efficient. Great view of the Disneyland fireworks. We will be back again.

Good value for what you pay.

Posted 11-Oct-2014
Pros: Splash park, pool.
Cons: they should provide hot water kettles in the rooms. It would be nice if there was a restaurant on site too
It was close to Disneyland, literally an 6-8 min walk to the gates. The splash park was great for our 5 year old daughter, she had a lot of fun there. The place is a bit outdated, but for the price, it's still a pretty good value.

Really Good Place to stay in LA

Posted 9-Oct-2014
Pros: Friendly staff, free parking and water play ground.
Cons: None
Location: See above
Visited Anaheim for first time with family of school aged children, did go to Disneyland and California Adventure fro 3 days. Good location and definitely within walking distance. Free parking of your rental car is a plus. Surrounding area is full of food outlets of various price and choices. Will definitely stay again.

Great stay while at Disneyland

Posted 6-Oct-2014
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Check in a bit earlier, we had a 13 hour flight and we arrived 10.00. Our room wasn't ready until 3.30. We were very tired and would of loved a shower
Location: Disneyland, there is bus stops directly out the front for travel to the airport, day trips, shopping outlets etc
We stayed for 6 days and didn't want to leave! The rooms were very comfortable, very short walking distance to disneyland, the pool and water play area the kids loved! Had a laundry, games room and convince store. The Garden and the grounds were very clean. The hotel staff are very friendly. Already planning to go back for our next holiday!

Great if you have kids under the age of 12.

Posted 4-Oct-2014
Rooms are large but need a good renovation. Very outdated!! My kids loved the waterpark as it gave us a chance to relax and cool off. Beds were comfortable and the room itself was clean. The bathroom however was in need of a good scrub. The pool area, waterpark area and outside grounds were kept very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
