We recently stayed at HOJO and overall were extremely pleased.
As we booked very early we were able to take advantage of a discounted price for a "Premium Disney View" room. On arrival, although the outside building isn't much to look at, the rooms were spacious and very clean. My only complaint was the Disney View - in my opinion there was no view. After speaking with the front desk clerk an arrangement was made which we were pleased with. The hotel is located next to the freeway but with the balcony door closed you couldn't tell.
About a 10min walk overall to Disneyland - and there are some great restaurants across the road including a McDonalds. Also for some good shopping Target is a short bus ride away. Also if you are visiting Knotts Berry the bus stop is right out the front of the hotel.
We didn't get down to the pool area - but overall you couldn't fault this hotel. My only advice would be to save the extra $$$ and stay in a standard or pool side room.
I give it 5 Stars for everything (value as we got a discount - not sure if I would be happy to pay full price). 4 stars for the Room due to the "lack of" Disney view. Oh and the Internet Connection is pretty bad - but it's free.
