Close to Disney Land

Posted 23-Nov-2014
Decent, if unspectacular, hotel very close to Disney Land (approx 5-8 min walk). Has a small water park best oriented to young families (kids under 5). The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Howard Johnson Disneyland

Posted 23-Nov-2014
Pros: Clean and super close to Disney main gates; directly off the I-5 made for convenient day trips to San Diego and Carlsbad. Kids loved water park/pool.
Cons: Update the bathrooms, fixtures, hotel is getting a little dated.
Location: Very close to Disney gate, excellent restaurants within walking distance, good little gift shops close by for discounted Disney merch, close to I-5.
Hotel room was spacious, the cleaning staff did an excellent job. The hotel itself is nothing fancy. The kids loved the pirate themed water park although we didn't use it very much on our stay. For a good quality hotel, very close to the Disney main gates, this fit the bill nicely. We spent the majority of our time at the parks or on day trips to San Diego area. The hotel is right off the I-5 which provided excellent access onto the freeway and was close to grocery shopping and outlet shopping with transportation. There were great restaurant options within easy walking distance. Great little Disney gift shops close by for less expensive items than the park carries; likely last year's stock (our kids didn't care one bit). Plenty of parking if needed. Overall, really pleased with our stay - can't complain.

The hotel was great. Staff were fantastic and the hotel is super close to Disneyland (maybe an 8 minute walk). Would definitely stay here again!

NOT that close to DisneyLand as most reviewers say

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Pros: Hotel has good sound proofing as we do not hear any noise from nearby rooms
I read all the reviews and most of the positive reviews were related to how close this hotel is to DisneyLand and number of food options near the hotel. The thing is this hotel is the farthest of all the close hotels therefore it still require a lot of walk (challenging when we have 2 small kids), this includes walking to nearby restaurants.

Nice hotel close to Disneyland

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Pros: The access to the Disneyland Parks is great, the pool areas and grounds are well kept, the staff is friendly and helpful
Cons: Move the I 5 freeway LOL
This is our second time staying the Howard Johnson, we a very late arrival the front deck was helpful, our first had a terrible sewer smell, he dealt with that immediately and changed our room without incident. The rooms are quiet especially since it is right beside the Interstate freeway, but it is noisy outside the room.

Walk to Disneyland, Great Service, Clean Rooms

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Pros: Service. Cleanliness. Walking distance to Disneyland. Close to lots of eating options, including Mimi's Cafe across street. Cost.
We have stayed at the Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel & Fairfield Inn by Marriot. My kids (9 & 11) would both choose the HOJO over these hotels. They loved the pool, waterpark & ability to see fireworks. Staff were incredibly helpful for whatever you need. We had left a sweatshirt in a room after we departed and they tracked it down and sent it to us. Rooms were very clean. If you are looking for a family oriented hotel with reasonable rates - this is your hotel.
