We are definitely Disneyland fans and while staying on site is fun, it’s also splurge we don’t do on most trips.
Our go-to hotel for Disneyland trips is the Howard Johnson Anaheim (HOJO). I think we have stayed there a dozen times over the years. Why? That’s easy!
My Top 3 Reasons to Stay at Howard Johnson Anaheim
#3 Convenient & Fun Hotel Features
The Howard Johnson has two different laundry facilities plus complimentary access to a computer and printer. Awesome if you pack light on clothes and leave your laptop at home!
There is a gift shop on site that carries a wide variety of grocery items perfect for easy breakfasts and snacks in your room. Directly across from the gift shop is an arcade that is fun if you are taking a break from the park. Perfect for older kids if the younger ones are napping!
P.S. The garden pool also offers a traditional pool experience.
#2 Great Value
There are several room types available at the Howard Johnson Anaheim to meet a variety of budgets and needs. All rooms include a mini fridge and free internet. Plus most of the room types also include a microwave.
The rates they offer are similar to other nearby hotels but the HOJO offers much more on it’s 7 acre grounds. They also offer special discounts for Annual Passholders and Entertainment Card Holders, and even Super Family rates up to 50%.
There are also a select number of Kids Suites that include 2 rooms with a bunk bed in one room and king bed in the other! Check out my short, silly video tour of our Kids Suite last year.

The Howard Johnson Anaheim is an 8 minute walk to the Disneyland Resort. It’s an easy walk for families that need to go back for afternoon naps. Here is a cute video about the location made by the HOJO.
Watching the fireworks from Castaway Cove is a nice alternative if end up leaving the parks before the show. A great option for families with little kids that go to bed early!
Do you have a Disneyland Trip planned anytime soon? We loved our Halloween visit and I wish we had Christmas trip planned too!
Disclosure: We paid for our own room, however I was provided a media rate for our stay. Of course you guys know that the HOJO is my long time favorite Disneyland area hotel anyway. As all always all thoughts and opinions are my own.
