Laguna Hills, CA
A couple months ago I got the chance to stay at the Howard Johnson in Anaheim (aka the Hojo). Yes it??s the one on Harbor Blvd across the street from Disneyland next to Mimi??s Caf. As a first time Hojo guest I was surprised with how super duper clean and classy the rooms were, and it wasn??t just the rooms, the grounds were clean and well maintained as well! The staff was very accommodating with my needs, not that I had many. I checked in quick, paid only $85.00 dollars for the night (and that was the discount with my Disneyland Annual Pass). As for my stay? it was awesome and I was only 8 min. from Disneyland. I was able to get a ground floor room with a balcony. I felt like i was in paradise,and so the first day/night I was in the room I sat outside on the balcony in a chair and listened to the bell on the Disneyland train and the horn from the Monorail??well I could hear it every 5 min.! In a nutshell,the Hojo is the best hotel for anybody??s budget. I consider it a great place to stay for a family! I recommend it to anybody!! The kid's pool area alos rocked!!
Desipite the other reviews of california adventure and downtown disney district--as an devoted park annual pass holder to both disneyland and california adventure, I can honestly say that both parks and the downtown Disney shopping area is a funfest all in it self! With 14 dining options and 26 places to shop till you drop??Downtown Disney is the place to go! With 3 FREE hours to park in the down town Disney district it make shopping and dining even more enjoyable! If you are an annual pass holder for disneyland, you will be able to get discounts on food and shopping in the downtown disney area!!
California is themed to a timeless ??California? setting. With well over 25 electrifying attractions and shows, this parks aims to please. And the puck does not stop there!!
