Walking distance to Disney and has a water park

Posted 31-Aug-2015
Pros: Friendly staff, clean rooms, great little waterpark
Cons: an update to furnishings would be nice though we loved our tiki art on the walls.
Location: a 5 minute walk to the disney main gate, Mimis Cafe right across the street
The hotel check-in process was the best i've ever had and we do a fair amount of traveling. The front desk clerk was friendly, informative and quick. We arrived early and had a grouchy toddler who desperately needed a nap. They had one room available and it was freeway facing, we are city folk so are used to some freeway noise but i was unsure if it was a good choice for a grouchy toddler. The clerk took me to the room to see if the noise would be ok for my little guy (who does this ever?!). The noise was minimal if even noticeable over the sound of the a/c fan (it definitely was more like white noise than anything else). The room was on the 7th floor of their Building #1 and had these skylights that let in some ambient lighting. We loved it. The water park part of the hotel was a HUGE hit with our 2 1/2 year old. The hotel is older but really well maintained. The room was clean and comfortable with a microwave and refrigerator. I can't say enough good things about the great customer service we received at the front desk- it really did set the tone for the rest of our stay. We've already booked our winter getaway with this hotel we were that happy with our stay.

Clean and convenient

Posted 30-Aug-2015
Pros: Our beds (and pillows) were comfortable, and the pool areas were wonderful. The water play area and pool were the highlights of our stay.
Cons: The bath and shower could use some updating. Given the water shortage, it was disheartening to have the bath spout wasting water during our showers.
The staff was very courteous and the facilities were kept clean around the clock. It's the most Disney-like hotel property not under Disney management. As a bonus, they also support having groceries delivered to your room, which saved us a good amount of money over the course of the week.

Comfortable, friendly and nicely located

Posted 29-Aug-2015
This hotel was recommended to me by a colleague who visits Hojo yearly. We loved it too. Rooms are spacious and comfy. Staff friendly. The only downside is if you are a late riser the second floor of the two storey blocks are not recommended - the light comes blaring through the ceiling windows which have no curtains. Otherwise great stay.

Stay at the Howard Johnson in Anaheim

Posted 26-Aug-2015
Pros: The kids water park/swimming pool!! My son loved it!
Cons: Door locks
Location: Disneyland
The stay was nice up until my family and I were locked out of our room on our second night! We had a long day at Disneyland 7:30am to 12:05am! We were dead tired and could'nt get into our room! I called the front desk and someone told me they would come up but never showed 20 mins. I called again and spoke with Robbie at the front desk and he showed up withen 8 mins. and unlocked our room! They either need a new key system go back to conventinal locks! Besides that issue the stay was nice!!

Great water park for kids

Posted 24-Aug-2015
We arrived 2hours early. Front desk employees were super nice. There was an room available so off we went to our room, we were so greatful having drivin for 5 hours with twin 8 year old we all needed to settle in. We were there for a Disney trip as were a lot of folks. The boys enjoyed the water park, we took them every day. We were able to see the fireworks from our room witch was nice. The only negative thing that happened was the AC went out in the whole building on our second night when I went to enquire about it at the front desk. The lady informed me that they would be crediting my card back for throne nights stay for the inconvenience. Which in reality made us over look it. Didn't see that one coming. our stay was great and we are looking forward to staying there again.

Wonderful for families

Water playground so fun, my child didn't want to leave. Very nice and responsive staff. Comfortable for a long stay. Could use a microwave oven, though.

Perfect Distance to everything!

Posted 22-Aug-2015
Pros: Distance from Disney
Location: Disney was close, restaurants, only 40 mins from a beach, 40 mins to Los Angeles.
The hotel was the perfect distance from Disneyland that it was quiet but close enough to walk everywhere. My son loved the splash park. Our room was comfortable, quiet. Everything we were looking for!

Not nice

Posted 19-Aug-2015
Noise, uncomfortable, just old. Would never stay there again. Even if they offered it for free. I felt like I was in a apartment complex not a hotel
