“Great Family Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this hotel by friends & they weren't wrong. We missed our on a family room which is great if you have young kids. Our room however faced the park with a balcony so is great for the fireworks. The rooms are basic but clean. The hotel has a laundry room so good if you are road tripping. Convenience store in lobby. Close to restaurants which we often just stopped in for brekky on way to park. A tip is that the restaurants nearby are cheaper than the park & more variety. The absolute favourite though is the water park. The kids loved it! Disneyland is huge & tiring & all the kids seem to enjoy time just chillin' here.

Always a comfortable and close to disney visit, at least once or twice a year for the past thirty plus years. Hojo's has always been clean and available to me and my family.

Great hotel with a water park for the kids in summer. The rooms are spacious and clean. Being close to the highway the rooms are very quiet! They have free wifi too. The cleaners always gave us fresh towels and lined our daughters toys neatly on her bed.
The staff are very friendly and always willing to help. They have a laundry in the basement and a gaming arcade across the hallway from the convenience store at ground level in building 1.
It may not have a restaurant but mimi's cafe is only across the road and between the short walk from the hotel and the park entrance you have a whole block of places you can eat.
I would definitely stay here again to visit the Disney parks!
