Great location for visiting Disneyland. Just a short walk to the parks. Our room, which was very comfortable, overlooked the pool and as it was very warm during our stay we used it a lot. The staff were very helpful with arranging tours and offering advice. Restaurants were not too far away either. Thouroughly enjoyed our time there.

This is a really good hotel within easy walking distance to Disneyland front gates. Are there hotels closer? Yes. Cheaper? Yes. But this hotel fit what we needed. Decent sized room that was clean. I've stayed in closer hotels and the rooms were small and felt dingy. Not the HoJo. Plus it has a great water park which the kids... More

Yes, it was within 8 minute walk, but when it was time to be in the room to relax and sleep, the noise from the freeway was distracting, every few... More

Dear 824shirleyy, We are so saddened to hear that you were disturbed by noise during your recent stay with us. In building two we have our Deluxe bedrooms, these rooms all face away from the freeway towards our Garden Pool. Most of these rooms are very quiet and we are sorry to hear that your room was susceptible to traffic... More

only a 6 minute walk from Disney. very good location, but nestled in the corner of the I-5 and Harbour Boulevard, so you cannot escape the sound of traffic in the hotel. Views of the fireworks are great if your room faces disney. The pools are nice, but the kids play pool and pirate area is NOT heated. There is... More

Dear JimCelineSamZachZoe, Thank you for choosing us for accommodations during your recent trip to the Anaheim Resort! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the fireworks view and our pool facilities. During our winter season our Castaway Cove water playground opens at 10am, due to colder nighttime temperatures the water slides and water features are shut at 6pm.... More
