My husband and daughter loved the pool and our balcony over looking the water park was fun. Also being...

We (2 adults and 2 children ages 10 & 5) spent 9 nights at Hojo's with a Disneyview Room with 2 queen beds on level 3 of building 1. Room 1301, I think. There was plenty of room for the four of us.

Hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. We received a room upgrade at no extra cost, which was fantastic and very much appreciated. Our daughter loved the water park. Any issues we had were quickly resolved. Close to the main entrance of Disneyland, about a 10 minute walk. Also close to McDonald's for a cheap meal...

Overall, I found this location clean and nice. It was close to the parks which was also helpful. It was also close to many restaurants.

Dear Holly V, Thank you so much for giving us a try during your recent Disneyland vacation! We are surprised to hear the brochures you were shown at the time of booking were misleading. Nonetheless, we are so pleased you and your family still had a delightful time with us. Thank you so much for your feedback and great suggestions!...
