    Spacious room, courteous staff, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: ~10 minute walk from Disneyland, having a pool was a must and having a water park for young kids was a plus.

    Restaurant on premises or breakfast service would have been nice, the water park seemed small based on expectations: okay for younger kids but older kids would get bored easily and prefer the standard pool.

    Too close to the freeway!

    Our room rumbled all night because it was right next to freeway 5 and a major onramp also. One mattress in the room was completely sunken on one side - very uncomfortable... if you do stay here bring earplugs !

    Very close to Disneyland. Was a very convenient and short walk to Disney.

    Bathroom was quite dated. Needs a renovation.

    We like how close to the Disneyland resort you are, and the pool and water park that are available if you are not at the parks

    We did not like that on the second night of our stay how the bath tub started to back up when we returned from the park. The smell was atrocious. When we called the front desk, they informed us that nothing could be done until 7:30 the next morning. No shower after a full day at Disney. When we woke up the next morning, the bath tub was still backing up. Again no shower. When I told the front desk the next morning at check out, they asked if I had been offered to be moved, we were never offered. Are parking which expired at 3 the day of checkout was comped after that but not much more. We have stayed her 2 other times in the past year and half but never experienced anything like this. Just upset that more wasn't done to fix a stinky backed up bath tub when it was reported.

    Good for my family purpose

    This hotel was 10 minute walk to the gate. It was nice and easy even at night. The staff was nice and very efficient. The Castaway Lagoon was a fun was to spend the morning or afternoon. My 5 yr old twins had a blast.

    WiFi was horrible. Walls were thin. The people above us were so loud my kids had a hard time sleeping the last night. Cleaning crew left cart in hall starting at 8 in the morning was still there 1 pm and did not seem to have been moved nor was there anyone in any of the rooms cleaning

    Great location close to Disneyland - easy walk to the park. Had a room that looked across Harbor Blvd toward Disneyland. Had an AWESOME view of the fireworks. Staff was friendly, pool was clean, just wished there was a hot tub in the Garden pool, not just Castaway Cove, too many kids in it to be relaxing for an adult, pool hours just right. AC in the room. Wished frig was larger, really only had room for a meal/day in it for 3 people, couldn't imagine if we had more people - a bigger frig would really have been nice. Despite the things I'd change, it was still the BEST VACATION EVER!

    Our bathroom sink was quite sloped, things would roll off it. Wish the frig was larger and that there was a hot tub in the Garden Pool.

    Family Friendly

    Our stay at Howard Johnson Anaheim was excellent! Check in was super fast. We arrived early and they allowed us to pre-check-in, hold baggage, and hang out at poolside. Water features were excellent for the kids. While at Disneyland (which is only a short walk away) kids kept asking when we were going back to the hotel to the kid water playground. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Not so much a didn't like, but more so a would've liked- it would be awesome if food and drinks were available at poolside and water playground.

    Not worth the money. Pay the extra $20 and stay at the courtyard mariott next door.

    Super cheat and gross bedding

    The only thing i liked was the tv

    Almost everything was outdated. Didnt like much. The bedding felt so gross; as if had been sitting there for weeks acumulating dust. Then the room felt really moist, almost humid when we walked in. The bathroom looked like it was for an old person. It said I got a deal after paying $200, but it seemed like it was a $100 room. In the pictures it looked like a $300-$400 room.... Super disappointed.
