Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel & Water Playground*

What we love

  • Good location 7 to 10 minutes from Disneyland® Resort
  • Interior corridors and larger, landscaped property gives it a more upscale feel
  • Castaway Cove water playground that includes pirate ship with slides, cargo net climb, 200-gallon drench bucket and heated pool
  • Rooms include mini-fridges and microwaves
  • Standard rooms with 2 double beds or 2 queen beds sleep up to 5

Keep in Mind

  • No in-room dining, although there is an on-site convenience store, and many restaurant chains are nearby
  • Some standard rooms offer 2 doubles and others offer 2 queens Queen with jr. bunk bed room is quite small at 269 sq. ft. and only sleeps 4
  • Most rooms offer balconies—request it if it's a priority
  • There is an additional charge for a rollaway beds
  • Some top-floor rooms have arching windows that don't have curtains
  • Some buildings don't have elevators; request the ground floor or a building with an elevator if it's a priority"

Frog Family Tips

  • Book a standard room with 2 queens if you want the additional bed space
  • Book your preferred room type; there are many options
  • Request a building furthest from the freeway if you're concerned about noise

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families, who want a fun pool option for the tadpoles and to be close to Disneyland
