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.

Two day stay for a family of 3 (9yo, 8yo, 5yo) while were were visiting Disney. Of course the main reason we picked the hotel was for the Pirate water park, and it did not disappoint. Just large and interesting enough for the kids (and parents) to thoroughly enjoy it for 2 hours, with plenty of chairs for lounging. The...

We stayed at The Hojo in Anaheim from 25th Oct till 2nd Nov 2014. Everything was perfect. All staff were friendly and helpful! Nothing was a problem!

Great location - 7 minute walk to Disneyland. Limited staff we had contact with were all friendly and happy to help. Great pool area. Disappointing no restaurant onsite especially when traveling with children. Had to buy plastic plates and cutlery to eat with, as nil provided.

Dear Rachel H, We are so happy to hear that our staff was attentive and that you and your family had a great time in our pool areas. Since our rooms do not include kitchenettes we do not provide plates and cutlery. We are saddened to hear that having no restaurant onsite made it a bit difficult for you. We...

We booked this hotel on the recommendation of a friend and were not disapointed. It is just a short walk (5mins) to the front entrance of Disneyland but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet after a huge day at Disneyland. The rooms were spacious, modern and very clean. The beds were awesome so so comfy. We arrived early...
