We stayed at the Howard Johnson recently for our family Disneyland vacation. When we first got to the hotel I was surprised at how old it was (it was built in like 1965). Despite its age the property is well maintained. We enjoyed our stay and it was great to be within walking distance to Disneyland. I would recommend it to others, especially those with young kids. If it was more updated and our air conditioner would have worked, then I would probably rate it higher.
The hotel is close enough to Disneyland that you can walk. We walked back and forth from the hotel to Disneyland at least once a day. We usually ate breakfast somewhere on our way to Disneyland.
The Castaway Cove waterpark at the hotel is great for kids. I thought that it was more fun than lots of the things that we did at Disneyland. There is also a larger pool, but I never went to it.
There is a large flat screen in each room with quite a few channels.
The hotel is right on the corner of Harbor Boulevard and I-5. There can be quite a bit of freeway noise. Most of the rooms have a sound barrier that blocks it out. One of the families in our party had to switch rooms because of the noise. If you are a really light sleeper some of the rooms may be too loud.
Our air conditioner didn’t work very well. The staff was fairly helpful in getting it fixed.
No breakfast at all at the hotel, not even continental, but there are plenty of places close by to eat.
