    Good Neighbor Hotels

    Does anyone have any recommendations for where to stay in Anaheim? My sister and I are planning a trip for next summer and we are leaning towards the Howard Johnson, but if anyone has a better idea, I'd love to hear it. We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel last time and loved it, but would like to go a bit cheaper this time.

    I expect you will like HoJo's fine. We stayed there in 2003. This summer we stayed at the Best Western Park Place Inn right across the street from DLR. That worked out really well. See http://www.geocities.com/ashpsyche/D...ndLinkMap.html for some other ideas.

    HoJo's is a great place (Won the readers choice at MousePlanet for 2004, in the top 3 at TripAdvisor for Anaheim hotels), here is a link to a discounted rate....

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    How cheap are you looking to go? I just spent a week at America's Best Inn and Suites:

    http://www.bestinnanaheim.com/

    It is a small, newly remodeled hotel off of Ball and Harbor. We got a rate of 35 bucks a night for 2 queen beds. The rooms are extremely clean and nice for the price- everything seemed new and they had all the basic amenities: microwave, fridge, hairdryer, shuttle, etc.

    I would definitely stay there again- if you are on a budget, it is wonderful. It gave us more money to spend on gifts and other useless crap

    There's my .02 if you are looking for the cheapest of the cheap.

    hojos is nice, but I like to be close to the crosswalk. So, we stay at the tropicana, carousel, or park inn anaheim.

    I would reccomend the Staybridge Suites, since you get free hot breakfast and many other great free amenities. It's an excellent place, but not sure if it's a good choice if you want cheaper.

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    Last week we stayed at the Stovall's Inn at the corner of Disney Way & Katella (The old Space Age Lodge.) Nothing special. Clean, comfortable, adequately appointed rooms. Two double beds. $70 per night. A nice mid-range motel room. Staff was extremely nice. When we first got there, our TV was only giving us black and white images. We mentioned this on our way to dinner at DTD. When we got back a couple of hours later, they had replaced our TV with another one that worked properly. Didn't get to try the free continental brkfst. You can see the Remember fireworks from the Inn... well... just the high ones in the sky and the tallest ones over the castle. Will be there again next week and will see how consistent they are.

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    When we go we Stay at the Best Western Anahiem Inn right across the street from the gate, next to Dennys on Harbor.

    We always enjoy our stay, and are able to go back to the room in the afternoon for a break.

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    Hands down, the Fairfield Inn by Marriott.

    It is CLEAN, has comfortable beds, great desk people, closer than HJ or the overrated (and farther away than you think) Candy Cane. Ask for the park view above the 5th floor, if you don't want to go the park that night (sleepy kids, achey feet, etc) you can pull out a chair and watch and hear the fireworks from the balcony!

    Its not 50 bucks a night, more like 100, but I am never worried about walking on the carpets, have a clean bathroom, and is quiet!

    Oh never stay at the ultra-cheap Del Sol ((shudder))!!! filthy carpets, no parking, HARD beds, ripped and harsh bedsheets, dark and horrific bathrooms....nasty overall

    I recommend taking a look at BiddingForTravel.com which is a discussion board that gives advice and details of priceline.com winning bids.

    Now using Priceline means you can't guarantee the exact hotel you will get (but you can guarantee you'll get one of the star rating you choose), so it may not end up a "good neighbor" hotel, but you can save a considerable amount!

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    I always check biddingfortravel before using Priceline! That board has saved me hundreds! One thing I learned....was to not use it for Anaheim if you have a car. Many of the Anaheim hotels on priceline charge steep daily fees for parking....$18 or so. I've read some other things....fridge fees, not being able to get two queen beds, things like that.

    I use www.entertainment.com and have gotten amazing rates. I used it this summer to stay in Bend, OR and saved $45/night on our hotel room. I've used my entertainment card twice at HoJo in Anaheim to get a $45/night rate, and another time for $67/night there during the holidays!

    We love HoJo. It's clean, close, consistently highly rated, excellent customer service, low in cost, comfortable, roomy. We've stayed there four times now and unless we're going to stay on Disney property, HoJo is the place for us!

    Couldn't agree more. Plus, the walk to the parks wasn't too long.

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    We mostly stay at the DL Hotel on site, but when we do venture off property, we stay at the (fairly) new Marriott Residence Inn. Great rates, hot breakfast, very large rooms which are fully equipped like a house and ultra-clean. Free comfortable shuttles to the Parks as well. Rates have been $92-$120/night, depending on how busy they are.

    We've seen a lot of thumbs-up reviews for HoJo's. If it was for a short stay, we would try there to see for ourselves. Most of our trips there are for a week at a time though, so the breakfasts, large rooms and evening snacks are worth it to us at the Residence Inn (when we can't stay on site).

    Where-ever you stay, have a GREAT time!

    Re: Good Neighbor Hotels

    I stayed at the HoJo's in May and really was impressed by their customer service...the pool was very nice and the rooms were ok...a very nice place to stay...

    For convenience, however, we always stay at the Tropicana..average/ok rooms..clean.. but the big plus is being directly across from the park. It is so easy!! We love it.
    Pluse, we really don't spend a lot of time in the room anyway..so we don't need anything too fancy..just a place to rest our heads and take a nap occasionally...
