"Great HOJO Near Disneyland"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Best place to stay within walking distance of Disneyland! Rooms were good size and pleased to find two bathrooms in our suite. Bunk beds were surprisingly comfortable. The location offers a terrific view of Disneyland from our terrace.

"Well located family hotel for a trip to disney"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We stayed here with my 5 yo twins for a trip to Disney and were pleased with the choice. As advertised, it is a short walk to Disney (although the ten minute walk felt longer with two wilting kindergarteners in the afternoon sun), and 1/3 the price of the Disneyland hotels. The room has been relatively recently renovated and was very clean, the climate control in the room was modern and quiet, and the pirate-themed splash playground was fun for the kids. I also liked that our room had a little table with a bench and two stools, which we used to eat breakfast together before a day at the park. Four stars only because the splash playground is separate from the pool area— made it hard to truck back and forth, and kids much older than mine would get bored quickly— and the gift shop, the only source of food on premises, was crazy overpriced. However, we got to-go food from Mimi’s cafe across the street on a couple of days, which was great.

Hotel was in a great location right near the entrance to Disney land. Only about 500m away. The water park inside the hotel grounds was great for kids and the room itself was clean and comfortable. The coffee machine in the room was a great bonus. The hotel has a small shop too which was really convenient for late night snacks etc

From the view, the ease of walkability to Disneyland and the retro stylized rooms and the staff that made us feel like family.. we found our happy place with this hotel, and we’re already setting dates for a return visit.

"Fun for kids, short walk to Disney"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 17, 2018 NEW
The Water Playground was a ton of fun and had bathrooms close by and lots of towels. The main pool however does not have bathrooms and did not seem to have any hot water for the showers. It was also quite dirty by the end of the day (pool deck, tables and pool itself). We stayed for 2 night and after many failed attempts on 3 different devices we finally gave up on getting any WiFi....thankfully we were not in our room much so it was not a huge deal. The hotel itself is in an amazing location and has a wonderful restaurant right across the street. At check in the staff was amazing, and the balloon swords were a wonderful start to our stay. There is a great little store on site that is open til 11pm and carries a large variety of snacks, disney treasures, and some adult bevies-this made it so we did not have to drive anywhere. Our main purpose of course was Disneyland, and it is only a 10 minute walk so the location was fabulous and in that regards reasonably priced. We would for sure stay here again.
