I called ahead and was told the balcony had child locks on the doors. The premium room facing Disney did not. An engineer came and put one on but not high enough. I had to block the door with a chair at night. The room was not soundproof for traffic noise. I asked to move and it was a giant...

First off... TIPS ON DISCOUNTS: This hotel runs promos a few times a year for 15%, 20%, 35%, and even a 50% off promo code. Granted the 50% off promo only happens like once a year and has a limited number of days of the year you can apply it. I believe the 35% off promo happens more frequently with...

we recently stayed there for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is great for Disneyland takes about 5 minutes to get there. Lots of restaurants and nice and clean. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful experience! The water park is fabulous for kids (and adults). Rooms were comfortable and spacious for a 3 person family. Staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the DL fireworks from the hot tub!

Worked for us. Quick walk to Disney so it was easy to take a break and sit by the pool. The back side of the property is against the highway and is very noisy so if you are a light sleeper, try for a room in the front of the hotel.

Dear Diane W, We are so glad you and your family took advantage of our close proximity to the Disney Parks! We are very saddened to hear your room was susceptible to freeway noise during your stay. Next time please let us our Front Desk Staff know, we would be happy to find an alternative quieter room option for you....

We had a wonderful experience staying at Howard Johnson. Upon request they also gave us a late checkout, as our departure was scheduled for later in the evening. They also accepted to hold our luggage after checkout until our transport arrived. Staff very friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work and thank you.
