A Dapper Stay at Howard Johnson Anaheim!

Howard Johnson Anaheim

I headed to Disneyland for my family’s semi-annual trip for Dapper Day weekend! Since we were going to be enjoying a whole weekend at Disneyland, I wanted to stay nearby. For the first time, my family and I stayed at Howard Johnson Anaheim – I went not knowing what to expect (except a short walk to the parks). Upon walking in, I loved the clean, mod retro design of the lobby – it was making me extra excited to see my room! While we waited for our room to be ready, we headed to Castaway Cove, a pirate-themed water play area for the family.

My daughter and I spent the whole afternoon there – it was so fun and relaxing – my daughter could go down numerous water slides, splash pads, and we could all relax in a jacuzzi in the same space.

After the Castaway Cove fun, we went to go check into our two-queen-bed room, which had recently been part of Howard Johnson Anaheim’s remodeling!

The room was just as retro as the lobby, with a clean, mod look and pops of bold colors. The beds were incredibly comfortable (not too firm or too soft). And there was even a mini fridge, microwaves, and Keurig machine. The room was made complete with Disney art throughout the room.

After a good nights sleep, we prepared for Dapper Day in our rooms (in our Monsters University Disneybounds):

The stay exceeded my expectations, not only from the comfort and decor of the hotel, but also that it was so close to Disneyland, plus I loved that you could both relax (they have a second pool outside Castaway Cove) or play as a family at Howard Johnson Anaheim!
