Our Opinion
A great choice! The Howard Johnson Hotel and Water Playground is excellent for families. There is a large pirate cove themed water park with slides, water canons and a 30 foot pirate ship. The hotel has a cool retro look and the rooms are charming and clean. The games room is another great family perk. Cots are available for a fee, cribs are free but on request. This award winning hotel is great for all families members and is only an 8 minute walk to the Disneyland main gate.
Get soaked at Castaway Cove, the newest water attraction in Anaheim. The brightly decorated and spacious rooms at Howard Johnson Hotel and Water Playground are all within a seven-minute walk to the Disneyland Resort®. This family friendly hot spot is a popular choice for Canadians.
Location: Across the street from the entrance to Disneyland Resort®, 1 block from Anaheim's Garden Walk and 56km from Los Angeles Int'l Airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • gabrielal608 : Walnut Creek, California
Reasonable hotel near Disneyland

Overall the hotel was great, the only negative is that the walls seem to be made of paper. The room was noisy! You could hear everything going on in the rooms next door.

  • John M : Reedley
Great place to stay.

Awesome room. Big and roomy. All the amenities we needed and it's in walking distance to Disneyland. It was perfect.

  • ppbush : Mountain View, California
Great location and pools for the kids

Great location and pools and for kids. The only downsize is the hot tub was constantly full of people, even in the off hours. Large room size and very convenient location to Disneyland. It's less than a 10 minute walk. Several places to eat within walking distance. We would stay here again on our next Disneyland trip!

It's leads a nice stay at the HOJO!

As annual passholders we found this hotel quite a few years ago based on the discount and we keep coming back based on the service and comfort

Family trip to Disneyland Halloween time

Me and my family went there for a Disneyland trip the hotel is just a few blocks from the park so that was nice, the only downside is that there is no breakfast included or a microwave inside the room but there were a couple of restaurants near the hotel, , the good thing was that even if the chek in was at 4:00 they let you have an early check in if there is an available room at the time you arrive,the room was in a building next to the highway so there was a bit of noise from the cars driving so if your sensible to noise you may not get a complete rest
