“Great customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We stayed at this location for our family vacation to Disneyland. It was a great place to stay! We were first put in a room near the freeway. As we had a rough travel to Anaheim, i requested a room change. The girl at the front desk was awesome and found another room for us (the hotel was very crowded as it was New years). The room was very nice and quiet in building 3. The beds were amazing!! I want one at my house! We had originally booked our room for 2 nights, but decided to stay one more night. The front desk again found a room for us at a discounted price. We had to switch rooms as only a deluxe room was available. We were not charged the upgrade price for our original final night. I actually preferred the regular room in building 3. The beds were slightly larger in the deluxe Queen, but not by much.The walk to Disneyland was a little long for me, but still doable! Overall we had an awesome stay and would stay again!

Room Tip: Request a room in advance away from the freeway.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

This must be my 7th stay over the last ten years. HOJO is right for so many reasons,

1-family friendly, we stayed with our 5 year old, plenty of kids running around having fun and never a scowl from any staff.
2-rooms are huge, enough space for bags and shopping
3-clean and comfortable, the rooms were serviced quickly and without fuss.
4-close to disney, a 15 minute walk door to door.
5-free parking, close to the motorways

While an older property, it is perfect for those first time visitors to disney or the local area, all of the tour buses stop off, it is an easy 40 mins from LAX. We arrived early (12pm) and had a room cleaned quickly for us, staying in the tower block we were concerned about the motorway noise, but better sound proofing has been out into place, very hard to hear anything!

The staff are very obliging, friendly and have a permanent smile. My 2013/14 recommendation for all.
