The Howard Johnson is a nice place in a good location. I don't think I'd want to be much further away from Disneyland and still call it
"easy walking distance," but I would certainly consider it close to Disneyland. We were there during/shortly after the California fires and the staff were very helpful on the days leading up to our trip when we would call to check the status of the smoke and wind.
I mainly wanted to address the comments by guests regarding highway noise. Our room was in a less than stellar location overlooking the parking lot and I-5. There are little balconies off of each room, and
I give props to Howard Johnson for the noise canceling doors that led
to our balcony. In fact, I was quite amazed at the LACK of highway noise in our room. We had the fan on at night when we slept, so between that and the soundproofing, noise was never a problem.
I wouldn't say I loved the location or the view out our room, but obviously some of the guests have to fall on the sword and take those
rooms and since we were hardly ever at the hotel, we were fine with it.
