Very disappointing that the room was warm and took hours to cool down even a little bit, had to call and have a fan brought up. Tried to log onto The features offered in the room, ie: Pandora,etc. again employee came up and could not get it connected. Paid for a “ Park View” (Disneyland), could only see the very top of Matterhorn, had a view of the rooftop of the two buildings in front of us and the cars going by on Harbor Boulevard. (Pic available). This was part of a 50th birthday surprise for my cousin, and needless to say we were very unsatisfied with our visit.

The children's pool play park was great! Our granddaughter had a blast on the slides and shallow kidde pool. We stayed in building 1 and the rooms were very clean and updated. The walk to the Disney parks was vey convenient; only about 10 minutes or so.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. We are glad your granddaughter had a blast in our waterpark and that our hotel was a convenient walk for you to Disneyland. It’s also great that you were able to stay in one of our renovated rooms. We are currently planning renovations on building 2 for later this year and hope to have the entire property fully renovated within the next few years. We hope to see you during your next trip to the Anaheim Resort.

Had a wonderful experience! Employees were all so friendly and helpful. Howard Johnson by Wyndham Anaheim was such a fun place. Perfect for our family with two connecting rooms. Grandchildren loved the water park. We loved the decor. Was very close and easy to get to Disneyland. Will be back for a longer stay!!

I honestly had high expectations for this hotel since it has such great reviews but unfortunately, I was disappointed. The Pros: Across Disneyland, parking is free, and the kids enjoyed the water park. The Cons: too expensive for the quality, rooms outdated, carpet and curtains looked dirty, there were not enough carts for luggage, no breakfast and the customer service was mediocre. I will not be returning here. For the price, I’d rather stay at the Marriott Suites.
