Can't say how good this hoteland their staff are. We won a trip tpo the USa and so everything I did was "last minute". They accommodated us perfectly and were courteous and professional the whole time. I think that word of mouth back in Australia now has the Hojo as "the" hotel to stay at if you wish to visit...

We stayed here for 8 nights and were really happy with our selection. Great for families, short distance to Disneyland and many restaurants. Hotel has free Wi-Fi and laundry facilities (at a small cost) which we appreciated. It does not have restaurants, room service or mini bar however Mimi's Café is just across the road which has great food and...

Stayed here Oct 2014 and I was happily surprised with this hotel. We stayed in two rooms-Premium 2 queen beds with fireworks view & a room with 1 queen bed and a bunkbed. The staff were FANTASTIC & FRIENDLY. The housekeeping did a great job and when asked, provided extra cups/coffee etc. The premium room had an amazing view of...

We stayed at HoJo twice on our recent holiday, heading to and from Europe. We love HoJo, but on this trip there were a few little things that added up to only a 4 star rating, not 5. We only had 3 of us travelling this time, so decided to get standard rooms rather than the premium ones we usually...

Short walk to Disney parks and restaurants near by. Kids absolutely loved the water park and beds were comfortable and clean. Would definitely book to stay here again. Only thing was no meals included but staff were very friendly and helpful. Internet access was great through out stay.

We were very comfortable in our Queen/Bunk Bed room with our small family of 5 (one baby in a pop-up crib we brought ourselves). The kids loved the bunk beds and they were very safe with high railings and secured ladders. The toilet was a little loud for middle-of-the-night flushes, but everything worked great and the room was very clean....
