This place beat expectations by far. The little water park and great food next door made this choice a perfect budget choice. Little children can go home from Disney and nap before going back for an afternoon or evening session. Thanks to trip advisor for do of this little gem.

This hotel/motel is of the quality you would expect at this price range. You can get a discount by joining their rewards club through MouseSavers. The kids waking up at 7:00 am and then running around screaming can't be cut out by earplugs, so you should count on early mornings. The walk to Disney isn't the worst I have had...

Near enough to walk to Disneyland. The have a great garden pool and game room for taking a break from Disneyland and we were only disappointed that we couldn't play at the "water park" because they were refurbishing it. The staff is excellent, the rooms are clean and welcoming and it's a very easy walk to Disneyland. We'd stay there...

I have only been able to stay at this property once, but I have had interactions with them many times regarding reservations and lost items. The staff MAKES the hotel. To be perfectly honest, the property itself is fine... nothing fancy and slightly on the expensive side. However, their staff from the reservations department to the front desk to their...

The hotel room was great, the facilities were wonderful. However the Internet connection was very poor. Great location to Disneyland and there is Mimi's cafe right accross the road with yummy breakfast, and dinner. The hotel also has a fun water park and pool.

The staff were all very nice and met my needs. Greatly appreciated. The rooms were large, well appointed, clean and tastefully decorated. The beds were most comfortable!!! Would definitely recommend Howard Johnsons and stay again, if in the area. Very well located to Disneyland and restaurants.
