This was our second time staying at the HOJO near Disney. Kids LOVE the water park. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only feedback would be to ask for a room with a microwave (since they cost $10 more).

My son's eyes lit up when he first entered our room. He was so excited to see that we had a view of the Matterhorn. On those evenings when we were at the hotel, the view of the fireworks was fantastic! Disneyland is a short walk away. From our hotel room to inside the park was 15 minutes. There are...

Kids loved the water play area. That's why we chose this hotel. We will only be staying here when we are in California.

After spending 9 out of the last 10 years traveling to Disneyland for spring break, I have to say our family thinks this is the best place we have stayed yet!

We stayed last month for 6 days, my husband, I and our 4 children and the grandparents. They were able to accommodate us with adjoining rooms facing the little waterpark. The rooms were very clean and we always had enough towels. The walk from the hotel to the park really is quick and easy-even a small town girl like me...

We stayed here for Spring Break March 2014. The check-in process was painless and the front desk staff were very friendly. We felt like they genuinely cared that we were there. Our room was easy to find and they put us in a room right next to my in-laws. We had a view of the pool at the back of...

We stayed 3 nights with my 8 year old daughter, and had a wonderful time. Our room was nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The water park is a blast, it was the perfect break from walking around Disney all day. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends with young children.

We have visited Disneyland quite a few times, stayed in a few different places and this one is by far the best for the price, location and cleanliness. It is a nice walk to the park and just far enough away from all the hustle and bustle. The pool area is great for the kids and a nice place to...
