We stayed there over the Memorial Day weekend with our two girls (5&9). We had a total blast. We usually stay at the Disney property hotels, but they were totally booked over the weekend. We lucked out and found a room at the HoJo last minute. The hotel is definitely retro, but it is still very nice. The little mini...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim. The location is close to the main entrance to Disneyland (maybe a 10 minute walk). There are lots of restaurant nearby (everything from McDonalds to Tony Roma's) and the Disneyland Express bur from LAX drops you off and picks you up at the front door.

This is our 3rd visit in the past year. I have to say this has been a breath of fresh air from other hotels in the area (including overpriced Disney hotels and hotels that require a shuttle service to get to the main gate). You can review my previous stays for more details on the locations and walking. This visit...

Hotel has a store that carries almost anything you would need. Front desk staff were very attentive. Stayed on the freeway side of the hotel, wouldnt have known it was there besides seeing it.
