We really enjoyed our six day stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful, room large and clean, beds comfortable. There are two great pool areas. And, best of all, it is only a seven minute walk to the entrance to the Disneyland parks. I also like the history of the hotel. It was designed by the same man who... More

We just returned from our week long (yes a full week) vacation to Disneyland and it was FANTASTIC. We ended up staying longer than intended because of how terrific our experience was at the Howard Johnson Hotel and Water Playground. Our two young children (2 & 4) had a blast in the hotel waterpark and watching the fireworks from our... More

This hotel had very friendly staff, was clean and up to date but the best park was the proximity to the Disneyland gates, only took a few minutes to get there. Very helpful if you have a young child that needs a nap as you don't have to get a bus and wait just to get to your hotel. Very... More

We picked this location as part of a travel package with WestJet, not really knowing the location or facility. In hindsight, this was a great value for the 4 nights we stayed. The location was excellent for either going into Disneyland or travelling to other California destinations. It is the last hotel on Harbour before the Santa Ana Fwy which... More

We spent three nights at the HJ. It is an easy walk to Disneyland, and its facilities for kids to swim and water play are excellent. The room was fine. We were in building 5, by the freeway, so it was necessary to keep the fan going full blast all night to drown out the traffic noise. That was the... More
