Reviewed 28 July 2015 via mobile

Having heard great things about this hotel we were pleased to find it lived up to and exceeded our expectations with a high standard of service and many friendly faces. Our rooms were great, bathroom spacious and beds very comfy. We had a great view of the pool and enjoyed swimming in the afternoon of our first day at Disney to relax our very sore muscles. Hotel staff always provided a smile and advice when needed. The hotel is very close to Disney and about a 20 min walk to Walmart around the corner which was great for us as we were not big fans of burgers and such. We were able to see fireworks from our verandah and found the room rate very reasonable. Thank you hojo Anaheim for making our first trip to Disney easy!!

Room size was ok but carpet/room smell was worst on all our US trip. Well located too see Disney fireworks and to walk to park, although we were disappointed by the Disneyland park compared to eg Europapark in Germany.
