We stayed at the Hojo last year and had a great time. The waterpark was fun for the kids and there was a hot tub for everyone in the same pool area. The other pool was in another part of the hotel. I went once to try to get some "exercise" in but it was too busy for swimming around...

Paula one of front desk managers gave us a great rate since we were staying 4 nights and was so helpful offering advice about other aspects of our stay.

This hotel has a great waterpark. Kids love it! It's a 10 min. walk to Disney and across the street to Mimi's Cafe which has great food too. It's a very good option to walk to Disney and enjoy the Water Park afterwards.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a clean, family friendly hotel. The pirate water splash park was a great way to unwind and cool off.

We stay here every time we visit Disneyland. The staff is very helpful and friendly and any issue I bring up to them is quickly resolved. The price is right, though I wish all rooms had microwaves.

We had a wonderful stay at Howard Johnson. Having a mini fridge and microwave in the room with young children was perfect. We will definitely stay there again.

Howard Johnson Anaheim was a brilliant choice of accommodation, given its close proximity to Disneyland Resort (5 min walk), restaurants and the freeway. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable, clean and were serviced daily. The front of house staff were excellent and extremely helpful throughout our stay. They happily provided information about restaurants, activities, shopping and relevant maps as well...
