Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 February 2013

I just booked our trip tonight but I wanted to comment on how helpful the two people from the front desk were when I called before and after I booked. Their names were Greg and Paula and they were both so friendly. They took the time to answer all my questions and at no time did I ever feel rushed. They even made some very good recommendations about things to do besides Disneyland in the local area. I am looking forward to our trip at the end of May and feel very confident that I booked a great place to stay.

We stay here everytime we go to Disneyland and just returned from a nice 4 night stay here over President's Day weekend. Our room was in building 2, downstairs and near the end of the hall. We loved this location. It was very quiet. At first, we couldn't get our sliding glass door to latch and were concerned we would have to call maintenance, but then we figured it out. I do think there might be something wrong with the latch. Our room was clean and housekeeping was always done when we returned from the parks for our afternoon rest. The beds are very comfortable. Building 2 is our favorite place to stay-less highway noise and bigger rooms, plus a view of the quiet pool. This hotel just has everything you need for your Disneyland getaway, plus it is just a few mins walk to the entrance of the park. The staff are always very nice and helpful. If you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not it. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable stay, beautiful grounds and landscaping, plus proximity to the parks and inexpensive restaurants, this hotel can't be beat.

We recently spent 7 nights then 4 nights after returning from touring around Cali/Mexico
The staff were very helpful with any queries and even offered to sort out a refund with a transfer we booked from home that did not show up to pick us up at LAX,they also held our bags for the whole day when we were leaving,the rooms were like our second home very comfortable and clean but we spent very little time there as we were as we were always out doing something. As for eating out we spent most nights at Millie's across the road,for the price we would recommend and will go back in our future visits to the US

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2107 ( twice) as it was very quiet down this end of the hotel

Usually I don't think of Howard Johnson when I go on family trips b/c I look for condos to better suit our family needs. This hotel was awesome! It is a 5 minute walk to Disneyland AND the water playpark for kids was PERFECT. My 2 boys (5 and 6 yrs) couldnt get enough of the water park and getting water dumped on their heads from the gigantic bucket. The adults lounge in the hot tub while the kids run around like apes:) Also in our room there was a fridge and microwave. One night we just stayed in for dinner and ordered pizza! Overall I would TOTALLY stay in this place again, especially if you have little kids.
