        My kids loved the water park and pool. Room service was great and fast. Great place to relax for down time. We had a pool side room and it was still quiet. Can see the Disneyland fireworks from hotel (we were 3rd floor).

        It was very close to the park. We walked each day. The 4 yr old loved the small water park.”

        It was very close to the freeway so I was a little concerned about noise but no issues at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

        The worst staff hotel experience ”

        I asked for a late check out. I was granted an hour. A staff member came banging on my door 8 minutes til. I’m wrangling up my three kids getting ready to exit. Purse in hand. Open the door and apologize. I try to talk to the lady and she IGNORES me. I try again and she ignores me again. One out of ten staff member were friendly. We were there for Disneyland. These people have their jobs to thank for Disneyland and if they don’t like their job they should not be working at a family hotel. I also was charged for a cot. The tag was the size of a business card VERY UNNOTICEABLE AND it was turned NOT facing me in the safe closet. The tiny sign saying it costs $12-$15 was facing the wall and could not be seen. They ended up reversing my charge but I was furious at the sneakiness of the hotel to get a few extra bucks out of me. The hallways stink of moldy carpet from people walking wet from the waterpark to their rooms. It was dirty and outdated. That’s a hard no for coming back here for me

        Great hotel close to Disneyland! ”

        Great hotel, very close to the parks, lots of amenities & very clean. We loved being able to walk back & forth from the parks, especially when it got super hot & we needed a break! We ordered food/supplies on amazon & the hotel stored it for us (even put the cold stuff in their fridge) until we got back from the parks. The also stored our stuff after check out, so we could maximize our park time! The staff was awesome...very friendly & helpful!! The room was large, had a good layout, we stayed on 2nd floor of building 2 overlooking the pool & loved it!

        Perfect family stay and excellent location!”

        Everything was great. The only con I have to say about this hotel was that there is no elevators for the 2nd floor on the first building. You have to walk up the stairs and it's challenging when you're carrying bags, toddlers and a stroller all at once.

        Was ok, if you have young kids the water park will be fine. Older kids not so much. If your looking for a pool better off to book Marriott next door. Bigger water slide for older kids, bigger pool. Staff was nice We needed some for older kids

        Hours of fun at the hotels water park”

        Pros: Convenience to Disneyland was about a 10 minute walk. Cons: Pool was closed down on the day we decided not to visit Disneyland. However, our kids had a blast at hotels water park. Our shower was clogged and they repaired right away. Wish the hotel rooms had larger mini refrigerators. With a family of four it was difficult to fit so many things inside.

        This hotel was awesome. Unfortunately I was on the second floor and the building had no elevator; traveling with two little ones, carrying all our luggage plus the icebox for their milk and snacks was a challenge. I wish the water park was open more hours (early/ late). My girls liked the face painting and glitter tattoos. Over all we loved this place and would come back.

        We had a great experience. ”

        We booked through Agoda and paid for an upgrade to a Superior rated room, with views of Disneyland, but Agoda messed up and actually only booked us into a standard room which looked at the highway.The hotel was completely booked except for one Superior family room (ajoined rooms), which they provided to us at no extra charge after they saw how frustrated I was when I was left on hold with Agoda reps for 20 minutes. Great staff and experience with Howard Johnson, not so much with Agoda. I highly recommend the property. It was very clean, the staff went the extra mile for me, and my kids loved the splash park.

        Very over priced and outdated! ”

        We called a month in advance to ensure that we would have a crib for our 5 weeek old. At check in they said as soon as our room would be ready they would make sure our crib was in there for us... we got the crib at 11:30 at night. When we finally got into our room it was crammed not a lot of space and they had assigned us a room right in front of the noisy pool knowning we had two very young children with us. Furthermore the shower dripped all night and the alarm clock wasn’t even set to the correct time. The walls are paper thin and there was so much noise from the pool we could hardly sleep. Considering cost of our stay $900 Canadian for 3 nights I expected a lot more! Will never stay here again

        We loved our stay here! Rooms were very clean, staff was very friendly, water park was a HUGE PLUS! Tons of fun for my young kiddos on the rest days between days spent in the parks. We plan on staying here every time from now on, we were so impressed. The price was very competive with places that had far fewer benefits. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, Disney friends!

        Sleppless in Anaheim Resort - LA ”

        In term of size for family, the resort is good. But cleaning standard is way fall behind my standard. Was check-in at night with family but found the rooms is so smelly - I suspect the carpet and not to mention the air-con fan is so noisy. we can not sleep but because we my kids are all so tired, they felt a sleep when I went out to request a room change. So next morning we managed to move to a fresh one. This is my first time check-in in the hotel with smelly and a very noise air-con. Housekeeping was not do their job properly, especially for long haul guest with sleepless experience, I swear I will never ever stay there again and won't recommend my relatives or friend to stay in Howard Jones by Wyndham.
