We booked this hotel based on reviews but the real attraction to the hotel was the water park (Castaway Cove) and the pool. Our kids are aged 7 and 11 and they absolutely LOVED the water park. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. We arrived a little early and the room was ready. If it wasn't, they said they would keep our luggage for us until it was ready. We stayed in building #2 which overlooks the pool. Nice sized rooms, very clean and ultra comfortable beds with comfy pillows. I was told that the mattresses were recently replaced. The bathrooms are large and the shower was great. There were plenty of towels too. The housekeepers did a nice job (thank you). There were towels at the pool and they were always plenty of them. The pool can be slightly cool but really after spending a day in Disneyland in the heat jumping into that cool pool was great. Laundry was located on the main floor and priced reasonably. There is a store located in building #1 along with an arcade for the kids.
The HOJO is located across the street from Disneyland. It is about a 10 minute walk to the park gates. We never took the shuttle. Walking was much quicker. Right across the street is a restaurant called Mimi's. I highly recommend that restaurant.
This hotel deserves five stars. I highly recommend it for people with kids ages 12 and under as that water park was definitely a favorite. I do recommend this hotel for anyone as it is quiet and well-kept.
Thank you to the staff at HOJO. We enjoyed our stay!!!
