Best Value Hotel for your Disneyland Stay!

LA Mami, Julie at the Howard Johnson of Anaheim

Planning a trip to Disneyland for the whole family and want to save some cash but still have a fabulous resort-style stay?! You are at the right spot, we stayed at the Howard Johnson of Anaheim to give you all the details!

First off, if you have kids, they will have a blast at their Castaway Cove AKA Water Playground galore! And at their large outdoor garden pool (pack your floaties)! When we stayed, we got to see one of the workers that are responsible to disinfect rooms between cleanings, it looks like a Ghostbusters character with their equipment, they make sure everything is squeaky clean. During our stay, masks were mandatory, check with the hotel for updated health-safety policies.

What we loved about HoJo?

  • Family centered, it was perfect for our little family of 4!
  • Only an 8 minute walk from Disneyland!!!
  • Tons of restaurant options within an 8 minute walk. However, If you prefer not to walk, the hotel participates in the Anaheim Resort Transportation system, which will take you to and from the Disney parks all day for a small fee.
  • Free parking! No resort fee, no energy fee!
  • FUN Water playground for the kids!!!!
  • Resort-style stay for hotel pricing!
  • They disinfect thoroughly between room cleanings.

Pools and Garden area:

  • One 2-hour time slot at Castaway Cove will be available per day for families of up to 5 people per room.
  • Garden Pool is large and you can bring your floaties! Our 9 month old son got to float around in the pool and it was great to see his excited little face in the pool for the very first time! Since you need a reservation, it was very peaceful and never crowded!
