This was our first time at the HoJo Anaheim and overall, it was a great experience. I would definitely stay there again. Our only disappointment was in the room size. We expected a much bigger room and walked into a small box of a room (my son loved the bunk beds though!). Nonetheless, the decor, the cleanliness and the amenities... More

Our ground floor room was way down in the back building near the main pool, it was quite roomy and big enough for 3 of us, however it is a little dated. But it was clean and tidy and the daily room... More

I was on a Disneyland trip with 5 grandchildren ages 2 to 16 and there parents. It was an easy walk to Disneyland, the rooms were adjoining on the top floor with nice views of Disneyland and the fireworks. The kids like the pool and water playground. The rooms were clean and the coffee maker was appreciated. All of the... More

The Water playground is great and my family enjoy it the most even when our plan was to visit Disney! The staff at front desk or... More

We stayed here with the family the rooms were big enough for 4 people, it was clean and tidy although a little old inside. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is an easy walking distance to Disney and we were there all day and night. There was some traffic noise which didnt seem to worry us. It was a... More
