The location is perfect: 10 min by foot from the disneyland parks ! We had a room located at the 4th floor with a view on the park which allows for a nice view of the evening fireworks (try to avoid the other side, because of the highway noise) The room was very clean, spacious and with a small fridge....

This hotel has a perfect location for those visiting Disneyland, as it is just a short walk away. It is also near tons of restaurants and stores for you to pick up things like snacks, water and anything you need that you might have lost of forgotten to put in your suitcase. The staff were really nice and helpful, the...

I chose this hotel for the water park. However, our daughter is 14 years old. She was much too old for this park which was very disappointing. I have to say that this water park is perfect for toddlers thru 8 years old. There was an out door pool which was cold due to the 60 degree temperatures at night....

This is the 6th time staying at the Hojo over the years and as usuall, it was perfect! The kids love it here with the two pools and the grounds are truly the closest thing to a resort outside of the Disney hotels...at a better value

Rooms aren't ready until 4. Hotel is old. Need of a major renovation. Our closet door was broken and when I went to report it, the man working the desk accused us of breaking it and then was extremely rude to me. On top of the closet door not working, the bathroom tiles are broken, tub was dirty, and room...
