Inspired by Tinkermonkey & her two kids being in town this week for Spring Break, I decided to take my two kids (ages 10 & 9) down to Anaheim for their own Spring Break mini vacation.
I called the Howard Johnson on Monday to book a last minute reservation for Tuesday & Wednesday nights. The in-house reservation agent was knowledgeable, friendly, and was happy to give me the AP Rate for both nights.
When we arrived late on Tuesday evening, we were able to go straight to our room. We had a great room in Building 3. The location was perfect! The kids were excited to be so close to Castaway Cove. (My daughter wanted us to take the path by the family pool area each time we left our room. ) The room was large, clean, and very comfortable for the three of us.
I have stayed a quite a few hotels around the Disneyland Resort over the years. HoJos is by far my favorite place to stay! The kids were fine with the walk between the hotel and the parks. They especially liked the quiet path on the Disneyland side of Harbor. What I love is that the staff are so friendly.
All three of us are looking forward to the next time we can sneak down for another mini vacation like this!
