Walk to Disneyland® Park!
It’s fun to be in the front row! The Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground, is closer to the gates of Disneyland® Park and Disney California Adventure® Park than two of Disney’s own hotels. Walk to the Disneyland® Resort in just 8-minutes for all the Disney magic, without the Disney price tag. That means even more family fun in Anaheim. So close there is no stress getting back for a nap or a swim break. View Matterhorn Mountain, the Disneyland® Monorail or watch the Disneyland® Fireworks right from the comfort of the hotel grounds. Just 4-blocks from the Anaheim Convention Center and a 10-minute walk to Downtown Disney®, nothing comes closer to a perfect location.

    Disneyland trip

    Howard Johnson was reasonably priced and close to Disneyland, both by foot and by car. The hotel was spotless, and the kids loved the pool areas.

    Great value, clean, and a happy stay for a Disney trip!

    This was a very good stay. From check-in, Kirn did a great job of welcoming us and helping with our reservation. The room was very clean and bright and happy, which helped add to the Disney atmosphere we were looking for. The hotel is very conveniently situated close to the park, so we could go in the morning to enjoy the park, then walk back for a short nap and meal, before returning to the park. All in all, great value and an excellent choice for a Disney trip!

    Paula, Mgr of the HJ Anaheim gift shop is awesome!

    I would like to post a shout out regarding Paula, the Manager of the HJ gift shop. she is ordering a special T-shirt that was not available when I contacted her. She is placing a special order for me and has kept me informed through the entire process. I'm so impressed with her professional efforts regarding a simple t-shirt. My Grandson was so upset when the t-shirt was damaged, and he will be so excited to receive a replacement one ( which he doesn't know is coming ) Thank you, Paula, for all that you are doing for me. I so hope your Supervisors know of how awesome you are! ...Mike Pilat ( yearly visitor from Northern CA )

    Best Stay for Disneyland Vacation ever!!

    We’ve gone to Disneyland every year but this is the first time we have stayed at Howard Johnson. It was an 8 minute walk to the park which made it great for taking grandson back for his mid-day naps. We had groceries delivered and’s they stored them in their fridge until we could pick them up. They were very friendly and accommodating. We will only stay here in the future.
