We arrived early and took advantage of the pool and water play park. The family suite was more than enough room for a fam of four rooms were clean staff were very friendly. Across the street to Disneyland resort. Have stayed here before this trip and will stay here again.

Nice stay, clean, bathroom was ok...shower was a little grimy.

The wifi is free and slow.

Air conditioner didn't work, neither did the fridge. I think that is a problem with our suite not the whole hotel.

They didn't make up our room one day. I think they were short staffed. They offered no compensation for this...little things you know?

The best part is how close it is to the park gates. We have a 2 and 4 yeAr old so we could come back from Disneyland for naps and then carry on back to the park. 5 minute walk to the gates.

Stayed December 2013

The rooms were clean, do not leave anything in the refrigerator the cleaning people will eat it, we left some lunch in the frig and it was gone the next day. We had two rooms and plenty of luggage, but the bell person was indisposed and could not be disturbed. We had to take our own luggage and three kids to our rooms a block away.

Hotel chosen by group were traveling without, age of our family group was 9 to 76, 5 of our youngsters were performing at Disney as part of dance school.
There were quite a few negative reviews but many very good reviews, we really had no choice as it was booked by the dance tour organization....We found everything was excellent, staff were helpfull and pleasant, reviews said it it was 10 min walk to Disney and it was to my releife because I had a bad back, I would recommend this hotel.

If you're looking for a hotel that's within a reasonable walking distance to Disneyland, the Anaheim Ho-Jo is a good option. Rooms were clean, modern, beds comfortable, and the staff helpful and professional. We visit Disneyland several times a year and have stayed at many of the nearby hotels. This is the second time we've stayed at the Ho-Jo. Freeway noise is more obvious if you are in Building 2 closest to the freeway, but it's not so loud that it's a problem or it keeps you awake. Pool facilities were very nice, and there's a fun waterpark-type feature for the kids. The walk to the main gate is less than 10 minutes and many rooms have a view of the fireworks if you find yourself back at the hotel before the park closes.
