We got in at 10 am and got our room immediatley it was a second floor sky light room and we loved it , We never heard our neighbors but we came in around 9 each nite exhausted.. My grandson loved the waterpark , though the water is cold ,the heat of the day warmed you up.. The garden pool is usually warmed to 80 + and he loved swimming in that when the sun was low.We ate at the mimi's next door and food is reasonalble and good. They have coupons at the lobby ask for Rainforest cafe ..On the back of the door they have do not disturb and clean now signs for the door and we used clean now often as we always came back to swim..Always cross over to the other side to walk to disneyland after the bus stops on Harbour turn right and go in you save about two disney blocks and it is a walkway just easily missed ! We had a great time and will stay here again , we loved it...

We were very impressed by the facility and how close the hotel was located. Just 10 minute walk to Disneyland and California Adventure. The service is excellent and they even have access to a doctor 24/7 just in case of health issues.

The HOJO is a short walk to the Disneyland Resort. The rooms are large and the water park is cool. I wish there was one for adults! Some of the rooms have a window transom at the top that may let light in early in the morning, but we could also see the firework glow from Disneyland at night.

Room Tip: Book a room that is not facing the freeway, as the subtle noise may bother some guests. Mimis cafe i...

We just returned from a fantastic trip to Anaheim, CA and we LOVED the Howard Johnson! The room was HUGE, very clean and well maintained. Hotel staff were super friendly and willing to help us with anything we needed. Our kids (5 and 1) loved the water playground and the pool although the pool was a bit deep for our kids so we didn't go in there much. We were in building 1 and while the freeway view wasn't great, it didn't matter much for us because we spent most of our time over at Disney :)
Thanks for a great trip, we can't wait to come back! :)
