We have stayed at many hotels in the area while visiting Disneyland... And this by far was the most entertaining and spectacular for our 3 kiddos, aged 3, 7 and 12. They all had so much to do with the water playground, the wadding, full size and Jacuzzi pools... Conveniently located about a 10 min walk from park entrance with...

I've stayed at this hotel a few times and every time I do the staff goes above and beyond to make sure my stay is perfect. I was hesitant to to post how much I enjoy it here because I always want there to be a room for me! But this team works hard and they deserve recognition. I called...

The family suite with bunk beds in separate room are great. Parents can have some privacy, kids love bunk beds. The small water park is terrific. I think the kids liked it better than Disneyland itself! Only a ten minute walk to the Disney gates. Will definitely stay again.

I was sure happy I chose to stay here!! The lead up was a long wait, but Heather made it worthwhile. She was extremely helpful and patient with our million and one questions and our multiple airline-initiated changes! The room was in building one, fairly high overlooking the park which was exactly what we wanted. Despite the heavy construction across...

Our stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel was great! The beds were comfortable, and the room was nice. The staff were THE BEST!! They were always pleasant, friendly and helpful. We asked for an extra blanket and they didn't have one on hand, so they delivered one to our room a short while later. Would definitely plan to stay...
