Stayed at the Ho Jo when I was a kid visiting Disneyland and just returned from a trip with my 2.5 year old. Glad to report that I will definitely be visiting again. Location is right across the street from Disneyland and only about a 5 minute walk to the front gate. If you are driving, no need to park at Disneyland as the Ho Jo will give you a parking permit for your stay. Rooms are large and comfortable. One of the highlights is the kids Pirate-themed swimming pool. My 2.5 year old did not cry at all when we had to leave the characters and rides at Disneyland and only cried when we had to leave the pool. This was a definite highlight of the trip. Be warned though...the Disneyland fireworks shoot off literally across the street and while the view is great from the parking lot, the explosions can be pretty intense and even set off a few car alarms. I was surprised at how quiet the place was as well. Sometimes motels can be a bit noisy but this place stayed pretty quiet throughout the night. The fully stocked gift shop stays open until 11 PM and in the morning is a great place to stock up on drinks and snacks before heading over to the park where food is priced at a premium. Overall, a great stay in a great location - don't pass this up.
