Location is great, probably closer than staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Walk is easy, fairly convenient. One horrendous part of the hotel is staying in the tower and the freeway noise. I mean, it's not just bad, it's BAD, it sounds like a window is open, I'm not really sure what else this hotel could do, maybe dump the small...

We took advantage of the this hotel because they offered us two queen beds at a reasonable price.  Most of the other hotels, either didn't offer double queens or were asking to much. The rooms are clean and there is daily room service.  This hotel does come with a children's pool activity center of sorts.  It has a play area...

Room was clean and spacious. Water Playground was awesome! Perfect for younger kids. Gated and enclosed. Parents can relax in the hot tub.

The Howard Johnson never disappoints! Great location with easy walk to Disneyland. We had a room in building 2. Freeways at the back of the building but we did not hear any traffic noise whatsoever. Very spacious room and large bathroom. Still had a view of the Disneyland fireworks. The hotel does have an old feel to it, decor is...

Our family of four has just left the Howard Johnson hotel and we found it a great place to stay. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the walk to Disneyland and back was so easy. Even after a 14 hour day. Would recommend this hotel

Right across from Disneyland, only about a 5 minute walk. Water Playground was smaller than I anticipated; better for much younger children, probably up to age 7. Definitely not for older children or teenagers.
