If you are coming here, the first thing you might want to do is to reiterate to your transfer agent/cab driver/etc that you are going to HGI and not Hilton Anaheim ("Big Hilton"). HGI is just down the same road but it is 1, 2 blocks away and you won't want to lug your bags that far.
Location-wise it is really average - about 15-20 minutes' walk to Disneyland (I am assuming most visitors come here for that). Then again, Big Hilton is just half that distance, plus there are a lot of hotels/inns here to choose from, so...
The area shuttle pops by the HGI block (a cluster of inns) but you might want to check out the very peaceful neighborhood instead which we loved for its serenity (it could have been the weather). Joe's Crab Shack is a street away and many eateries line the way to Disneyland and the intersecting W Katella Ave - so no worries about breakfast/lunch/dinner.
The hotel itself is sparsely-furnished but well-kept, and access to the business center is free for last-minute checks on the internet. Ample parking available right by the entrance. Rooms are a decent size with microwave ovens though an airpot or bottled water would have been great - apparently these are not the norm in hotels here.
Service is about as no-frills as the hotel. Directions and bookings are helpful but one of them was totally stumped when I asked for an adapter for my non-US chargers which don't fit the power sockets. I tried a couple of other names and descriptions so the blank and rather unhelpful responses weren't so nice.
If no one else has anything better to recommend around Disneyland then HGI could be it. Try online for sub-90/night deals which I thought was very good.
