We loved, loved, loved this hotel!! Room was quiet and well maintained. The kids LOVED the "water park". There were days that they wanted to go to swim more than visit Disneyland. Shuttle stop just outside of hotel was very useful at night when you don't want to carry the kids home the half mile from Disney. Staff was very friendly and always available for help when needed. Can't say anything bad about the hotel. We are definantly going to stay there again at our next trip to Orange County. The free nightly fireworks display was an added bonus, the baby could sleep while our older one got to watch from just outside the room already in her PJ's.

Took the exact same trip 3 years prior but at that time we stayed at the newly remodeled Sheraton Park. This trip was every bit as nice! We were able to walk to Disneyland/California Adventure, plenty of places to eat (i.e. McDonalds, Mimi's cafe). Enjoyed the stay, both pools, and our 7 year old loved the water park on site. The store in Building 1, had everything you could want and for pretty decent prices, especially compared to Disneyland. On our final night (and a 15 hour day at Disneyland) we came back to find our room had been flooded by a AC unit leak upstairs. The management moved us to a room close by, gave a fair discount, and allowed a later checkout. No one is perfect, but we appreciated the effort in making it better for us.

Time saver

Allow for walking time to park, especially on Magical Mornings. Five minutes for fast walkers, 15 for slower.

The Howard Johnson Hotel is awesome! We took our two grandkids, and the little one said, "This is the best hotel EVER!" I think that he was impressed with the small water park that they have on the property. This hotel is only a couple blocks from the opening to the Disneyland Resort. And,almost as good, it is only a couple doors down from McDonald's! It is an older hotel,but it is in pristine condition. The grounds have beautiful landscaping. I was really enthralled by the trees that had giant, white flowers. They were breathtaking! There was only one small problem, and that was that the remote to the tv didn't work. Other than that, it was a great hotel with very helpful people working at the front desk!

The HoJo is close walking distance to the gates at Disney. There were restaurants in the area and they never had a wait. The pirate cove kids pool area is ok; it looks a lot bigger in the online pictures. Rooms are basic but clean.

Money saver

I wouldn't waste money on a shuttle from the hotel to Disneyland. Our daughter, who turned four while we were there, walked to and from the park each day without trouble.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. At the last minute we had an extra traveler come with us and wanted to upgrade to a suite. The night after we arrived they put us in a suite and were very accomodating. The pull out sofa was not very comfortable so they gave us a cot right away. Fridge and microwave were in the suite and the rooms were spacious. The mini mart was well stocked and prices were resaonable. Was surpised they had enough grocery type items for good breakfasts in the room. Rooms were very clean. LOVED the pirate pool. Only drawback was the big pool was a walk from the kid pool. My kids kept me going back and forth. Other than that a fantastic place to stay. Good price, great accomodations and very courteous staff. Also, very short walk to Disneyland and away from the hustle of right across the street from the park. Grounds are spacious and pretty. If others find things to complain about they are being too picky. My family loved it.

Attractions

For Disneyland get hopper passes and use the fast passes. Makes it much more enjoyable.
