Had a great stay at the Howard johnson, the location is so convenient and a 10minutes walk not even. The hotel is not right by the main entrance but with the amount of people walking by I wouldn't want to be directly in front of the main entrance. The staff were outstanding and very very accomodating. Our room was clean...

All in all it was a nice clean room. Rooms were kind of dated, or Orange and green are just not my cup of tea!!! Bathroom tubs are really slippery. Myself and my son fell while showering!!! Nice swimming area for kids, but teens and adults can only use hot tub!!!

Hubby left it a little late to book accommodations for a Jan 2017 trip to Disneyland for a group of three adult couples. But HoJo to the rescue! Which was nice, because I remember this iconic hotel/motel from when I was a child, with its curvy and colorful rooftops. The curvy rooftops are still there, but they are extremely faded...
