An extensive property with multiple buildings in a parkland setting. Everything is clean and well maintained. The two water features proved popular with the kids staying here. We occupied a ground floor room in Building six. With two double beds we were able to get up during the night without disturbing the other.

This is our first family overseas holiday and choosing the Howard Johnson Anaheim as our first stop for four nights has been a blessing! Being greeted by Danielle at reception where anything we asked wasn't a problem. Danielle took time to provide maps which she highlighted rides to do first and explained the fast pass process!

Rooms were fine. Nice to have a fridge and microwave and coffee maker! The rug had a odd crusty dirty spot but hey cleaned it up as soon as we told them.

Checked in on Friday and immediately went to the pirate cove. Had a great couple of hours there and my 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed himself. However when we got to our room i noticed that the comforter on one of the beds had a redish brown stain on it. I called the front desk to have it replaced. We... More

We stayed at the Hojo last year and had a great time. The waterpark was fun for the kids and there was a hot tub for everyone in the same pool area. The other pool was in another part of the hotel. I went once to try to get some "exercise" in but it was too busy for swimming around... More

From first contact with reservations at hotel, call directly instead of 800#, great customer service. Paula one of front desk managers gave us a great rate since we were staying 4 nights and was so helpful offering advice about other aspects of our stay. Hotel is very well kept, grounds are beautiful and kids loved pool and water play area.... More
