It has a nice pool but they kept running cold water into it making it too cold to enjoy. Most of the staff was very friendly and I would've given this facility a much better rating if it wasn't for one small incident. An item of very little value disappeared off of the nightstand while we were swimming. I searched everywhere for it and am fairly certain an employee took it. I feel kind of bad giving a poor review because of the actions of one person. Thank you to everyone else that works at this Howard Johnson.

Don't stay here.

This place is labeled as "8 minutes walk from Disney", which in reality is a 20 minute drive from Disneyland. Here are some bullet points: The floor was dirty. The bathroom window didn't lock. The staff was rude. Very small parking lot. Very small pool- located in the parking lot around a chain link fence. Attached is a photo of their sign.. trying to get us to come back and visit. LOL NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

Not the best part of town or most comfortable

It wasn't in the best part of Orange and it wasn't the most comfortable. The beds really needed help...it felt more like a Motel 6

Gas Station Entrance

Pros: Even though there is freeway directly behind the hotel, it was pretty quiet
Cons: Entrance and signage for entrance
The entrance to the hotel was a bit confusing, as you had to enter a gas station and drive around to the back to the hotel. It was very poorly marked and it should have some form of separate driveway. Also, due to the freeway on-ramp just outside the gas station, it was very hard to make a left handed turn when exiting. You also have to make a U-turn to enter from the opposite direction.

This hotel was convenient for work.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
This was a case in point where you get what you pay for. I needed a reasonable hotel in town for 2 days for work. It was close to my job site and I figured because Howard Johnson is a trusted name in the hotel industry that the room would be up to standards. While the room was clean it was very run down. The king size bed looked and felt like it was going to collapse. The linens, pillows and bedspread were old and tattered. In short this place is not worthy of calling it a Howard Johnson's hotel. I would never stay here again!!!

Automatic Lights and Cops

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Poor breakfast
We opted for a budgetmhotel because this was a weekend trip for the WonderCon convention and we were not planning to be in the room other than to sleep. The room was average for budget motel. We had two queen beds, the room was clean and it had a mini fridge and a microwave. Parking was limited and if both times we got back to the motel after dinner we had to park at the Sushi restaurant that shared was in the same parking lot. The main issue we had with the room was that all the lights were motion sensitive. That means EVERY time one of us moved in the middle of the night (even just a stretch or to roll over) the light would turn on and blind everyone. By the same token the light would turn off when you were in the shower since the sensor couldn't see you behind the shower curtain and would leave you to shower in pitch black until your arm could find its way out of the shower curtain to wave the light back on. Other items to note was that the Continental Breakfast was lacking in that it was stale cereal and old individually wrapped pastries. And as we were leaving the hotel on Saturday evening there were cops there making an arrest in one of the rooms.
