5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed for 9 nights on family "dream" holiday. The location to the main entrance of Disneyland is a 5 minute walk. We were able to come back in the afternoon for a rest, whilst our children played in the waterpark and then head back to Disneyland at night. The room was great, very spacious, clean and extremely comfortable beds. The best place to eat whilst staying at HOJO's is Mimi's Cafe, fantastic value and great meals. We have recommended HOJO's to all our other friends and family.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Building 2 lacked a degree of exterior aesthetics at the moment, as they are re-landscaping it all. The room was quite large, with a two sinks in the bathroom. No dining on site, though there was a convenience type store there. The walk to the park was no big deal, maybe three quarters of am mile total distance. We squeezed our six year old in a stroller and off we went! McDonald's was on the way, so getting breakfast was easy. Viewing the fireworks at the park is fun, but also rather chaotic with so many present. After one night of that, we watched from the hotel pool and parking lot. That was equally spectacular and loud!
