“Another great stay at the Hojo.”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

Convenient walk to the parks with Mimis family restaurant and McDonalds on the way. We've been staying here for years and the remodeled retro rooms still look pretty good. The family suite is awesome if you can get it. Two full bedrooms and bathrooms. Definitely worth the price differential. On our non-park arrival or departure day, the kids enjoyed the water playground and hot tub. The on site mini market is handy and reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Howard Johnson late Jauuary 2014 after tourist season was over. We stayed on a ground floor room in building one. We found it to be so convenient and even though they told us we probably would probably not be able to see the disleyland fireworks, we had a perfect view. I found the staff to be so helpful. They have a little gift shop, as does most hotels in the area and the ladies that worked in the shop were so friendly. The location was perfect, it was only a 10 minute walk in the mornings to Disneyland, Calafornia Adventure and Downtown Disney. There is approximately 4 cafés for you to have breakfast at between the hotel and Disneyland, we ate at Mimi's every morning and loved it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it made our holiday special.

Loved the location directly opposite Disneyland and with a 10 day Disney Pass we had a great time coming and going from the park as we pleased. Used the hotel as our base while in LA which worked well and was close to freeway. Would stay there again when we are next in LA

Room Tip: Ask for a fireworks view room on a high level

Stayed four nights, comfortable clean rooms, great location to Disneyland 10 minutes easy walk. Great location to good restaurants nearby. There was a problem with room upstairs leaking water in the bathroom and management phoned us after 11pm to let us know if we had water leaking down into our bathroom they would change rooms. Didn't appreciate being woken that time of night from sleep but understand they were being concerned about potential water in our room.
Hotel lodged between two major roads and was a bit noisy but not too bad.

Small convenience store in our building which we could purchase food and dring to consume in room. Open early and good feature.

For people looking for value and convenience to Disneyland and good food I would recommend it.
