We had one of the King Kid Suites which has full length twin bunk beds & two bathrooms, great for traveling with teens. They had no interest in the water play area, but enjoyed the pool.

The hotel is over 50 years old and the design and scale reflect that , BUT it was clean and super close to Disney and fairly priced. My kids absolutely loved the kids pool and splash pad . The rooms were a little small but they did the trick , we weren't really in the rooms much anyways . I'd... More

This is our second trip to Hojos and again it was excellent. The room we had was in Building 2 and was HUGE! Both pool areas were well utilised by the kids and I loved its friendly family atmosphere. I would have given 5 stars bar for the poor/non existent Wi-Fi in the rooms (if you go to the pool... More

The room seemed huge with the extended ceiling. We loved the natural light brought in from the windows. The check in person was very pleasant and shared a tip that Disneyland was within walking distance and that we didn't need to wait for a shuttle. Cleaning personnel started very early and we had not put the sign out but they... More

with all the hotels around Disneyland that are old and dirty it is nice to have an affordable option that is Clean! I have stayed here many times and never found ANY part if this hotel to be even slightly dirty. The staff is suoer friendly and the water park is great for smaller children.

We booked this hotel on the advice of a travel agent and then had lots of friends tell us they used it too. The long and short of it is that it's a great place for anyone looking for a mid range hotel within walking distance to Disneyland. Less than a 10 minute walk (with 3 children), there are great...

We stayed here for one week in July 2016. We choose this hotel because of it's reputation and proximity to Disneyland. We stayed in building number two with a view of the adult pool and DCA's Tower of Terror. We could see the Disneyland fireworks every night through the trees. The beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever... More

This was our first time staying at this property. We really enjoyed it. The rooms are big, great coffee maker, mini fridges actually stay cold, and it has a sink/mirror in the bathroom and a little set-up outside of the bathrooms for extra space. Water Playground and pool were both awesome. Looking forward to staying here our next trip to... More
