Motel was great and close to Disney. We saw the fireworks display from our room (3 rd floor) everynight. Pools were nice n clean. Just would be nice if breakfast was served considering the price that is charged for the rooms.

After many stays at the HoJo, this trip we stayed at the Grand Californian after Disney gifted us a free stay. By day two, we were yearning to check out and take a taxi to HoJo. This hotel for more than 10 years has consistently been clean, comfortable, extraordinarily friendly and helpful, and pro-active in helping fix near-vacation disasters for...

Clean new hotel at a reasonable price for the area. 10 minute walk to parks. Comfortable, clean, no frills hotel. It was fun to relax at the pool after a long day at the park and before going back in the evening.

The positives about this place are that it is located at walking distance (10 mins walk) to Disneyland and has a few dining / fast food options nearby, and it has a pretty good water park and a jacuzzi. Staff is also good and helpful and parking is...

In order for us to compete with other hotels in the Anaheim Resort, pricing during our busy summer peak season does tend to be a bit higher.

We stayed here 10 yrs ago and enjoyed it so much we decided to come back. They didn't have the Pirate Ship waterpark back then, so we remembered how much we enjoyed sitting in the quiet hot tub in the evenings watching the Disney fireworks. Well the water park is now an added addition - which is a hit with...

We were looking for a hotel that was within walking distance to Disneyland & had a pool area for the kids. This hotel met both requirements. If you are looking for a pool, be sure to research and look at pictures of the water playground. That's what it is. Considering our kids were 7 & 8, a water playground was...
