We just came back from doing the Disneyland thing for the second time. Both times we stayed at the Hojo and rate it highly. This time the weather was great and the kids used the waterpark every day. It is a 6 minute walk to Disneyland and you walk past a cafe, McDonalds, IHOP and Dennys on the way, so...

Room was clean, pool was nice, a little loud at night being on the end by the stairs but tolerable. Short walk to Disney, hotel store was expensive but expected, and the manager was pleasant and helpful.

Very friendly and helpful staff! Location was not as good as some other nearby hotels. A bit of a walk to the parks. Kids loved the water play area. Rooms and property are a bit dated but clean. Price was perhaps too high for the amenities offered. A good stay none the less.

This was recommended to us by our travel agent and we were well happy, so close to Disneyland it was a highlight in itself. Rooms were awesome and comfy. We had a family room and pool and water playground was a big advantage. Little shop on site was handy too.

Our room was clean, housekeeping was very good and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. We stayed for 11 nights in 1619 with a Disneyview. Husband complained of an odor of sulfur but I didn’t notice it. I would stay here again especially if traveling with children. The comfort of the beds will bring me back,...

This hotel is a great place for families. The activities for children are fun. They have an arcade and a pirate ship themed water play area. My children played for hours on it.

Hotel room was clean, large (2 rms - one King bed, other bunk bed with pull out chair) with 2 full bathrooms. I have absolutely no complaints, I would defiantly stay...
