What a great stay! We were here with extended family for a Disneyland trip. We had three rooms. Two of the rooms had one king bed and these rooms seemed a little small. Our room had two queen beds and the room was very spacious. so everyone hung out in our room when we weren't in Disneyland. The rooms are kept exceptionally clean, staff is very friendly and it is easy walking distance to Disneyland. Lots of restaurants along the way like Mimis, Millies, McDonalds, Captain Kidds Buffet, Dennys and Tony Romas.
The pool areas are perfect with views of Disneyland. Saw the fireworks from the pool on te first night. Water play area for the kids is perfect, the Garden Pool is more tranquil with lots of trees and foilage for cooling down.
We will definatley stay here again and again!

We stayed at this HoJo in June for 5 days and 4 nights, 3 of those days were spent in Disneyland. The actual hotel is in a really good location, a pretty short walk to the Disneyland Resort and not that hard of walk even after spending all day on your feet. We'd stayed in the building near the freeway, but were far enough away to not really be bothered by the sounds of road. We had two rooms and and each was pretty different. One room only had one sink in the bathroom, but had a much larger balcony, while the other had two sinks and a tiny balcony, but had a wonderful view of the pool which gave the adults of our party and easy view of the kids playing in the pool.

There is two pools on site. One main pool which also has the hot tub and a small wading pool for the kids, and a much smaller pool. Our room was closer to the smaller pool, so we ended up using that one and were not disappointed. They offer free towels and the seating around the pool is great.

There is a very small gameroom with a view somewhat outdated arcade games, but it's still a decent place to send the kids while you relax in peace.

The actual rooms were very nicely put together, lots of light and plenty of outlets (which we needed). Each room comes with free high speed internet, but the eternet cord is very short and on the night stand, making it somewhat difficult to use.

I would definitely stay at this HoJo again.

We stayed at the Howard Johnson /HOJO for the sole purpose of taking our 4yr old to Disneyland. The price was right and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I admit this is no Sheraton Hotel but you won't get that for this price. All three days were spent entirely at Disneyland so the room was just a place to sleep. We walked each day to Disneyland from here and took the ART back to the Hotel which was the first stop. My 4yr old had no problem with the short walk to the gate. We ate a number of breakfast's at Minnies next door. It's not Denny's prices but reasonable and the food and service there was great. Again if your just going to Disenyland this is an excellent hotel to sleep and get up in the morning and do it again.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Disney. We arrived at 9.30am and got checked in and got our room straight away which was great. Front desk staff were very helpful. Room was looking out on to freeway but we were not disturbed by noise at all. The room was not very large but was adequate for 2 people. The pool area was great very clean and much appreciated after a long day at Disney. Was very family orientated and there was work on a new fron lobby which looked very impressive. Hotel is within great walking distance of parks. Would definetely reccommend this hotel for couples and families alike.

We had a wonderful stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim. Everyone at the Front Desk (Paula, Greg, Andrew) were exceptionally helpful and always warm and friendly. This is our third stay here and we will always stay here when we are in town. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully appointed, and the personnel at the front desk never neglect to go the extra mile. Paula always greets us with a warm friendly smile and is quick, very efficient (we mentioned we would need a rollaway later and it was waiting for us outside the room), and makes everyone feel special and important.

We would like to thank the management for hiring proficient personnal as well as providing lovely accomodations.

We are from Australia and wanted somewhere to stay that was close to Disneyland. What a fabulous place to stay. The location was brilliant. Our room overlooked Disneyland and we were able to stand on our balcony and watch the amazing fireworks each night. The room was very comfortable, large and very clean. The service was great, desk staff more that helpful with any questions that we had. The best thing was being able to walk to Disneyland everyday at a comfortable pace, it only took 5 mins. We ate at Mimi's nearly every day, the food was amazing and great value we were allowed to take with us (in a take away box) anything that we could not eat - that was happening every meal. They have a fabulous take away service, everything on the menu packed into a paper bag, exactly as you would get it if you stayed and ate there. We took it back to our room and ate a couple of times. We would definately recommend staying here to anyone looking for excellent accommodation. We will be staying here again.
