I just got back from my Disneyland vacation with my family(wife and 3 children - 12, 9 and 6). This hotel is perfect for everyone. First, it is a 10 minute walk to Disneyland. Second, one thing you will notice when going from Howard Johnson to the resort entrance is that the other hotels are long and narrow. The narrow... More

This was probably our 5th stay at this property. The entire family loves it and we keep coming back. It is perfect for a family Disneyland vacation. The walk to the parks is under 10 minutes. The kid pool area is great for the little ones. We still haven't tried the adults pool but hope to one of these visits.... More

My daughter and I stayed here when we visited Disneyland. The hotel was fantastic. The staff were friendly, the rooms large and clean and the grounds were beautiful. I highly recommend staying here when you visit Anaheim.

Hotel is in a good location but that"s about all. We were given a top floor room. The first night it was so noisy with the freeway directly behind us. The room had glass at the top of the roof dome and no curtains. As soon as the sun came up we were up. Asked for another room and sorry... More

Helpful, friendly staff; comfy, clean room, close to dining and Disneyland. The kids had a blast at the pool and waterpark. We stayed a week and had a great time. This will be our go-to hotel for all our So Cal trips in the future!

We stayed at this hotel in October 2013 with our son and his family. There was a great little water park for the kids to play in which they really enjoyed. The rooms were nice, comfy bed and quite roomy. The staff were very helpful with arranging shuttles, etc. and explaining bus routes. The location was wonderful. Within a 10... More

This hotel wasn't a big disappointment because I wasn't expecting much from a HoJo. The rooms are typical of a HoJo . . . clean enough but still feels like a motel. The price point is high I think because of its proximity to Disneyland. For that reason this hotel is great. It's definitely walkable for family's with kids in... More

Stayed 3 nights in June2014. For us Texans, the waterpark was too cold for our kids. Of course the only time they had to enjoy it was the evening we got there. I'm sure with the sun shining it would have been perfect. My 3 yr old loved the slides, my 8 yr old preferred the big pool (heated). Either... More

this hotel is in walking distance of Disneyland. Not to far for a 7 years old. Rooms are Clean and spacious for a hotel. Beds where extremely comfy. Mimi's across the road was a great restaurant for having an affordable breakfast. This would be a great place in summer for families with small children wanting to have some water fun... More

We stayed 2 nights - Late June 2014 for a visit to Disneyland! The entire experience was PERFECT! Front Desk staff was great...accommodate both my requests for: 1) Adjoining rooms (although not something they can guarantee in advance) and, 2) Ground floor rooms as my 75 year old mother was with us. Very clean rooms. Nice balcony and view from... More
