In December 2019 I participated in a little contest on Instagram and won a trip to Disneyland and hotel stay from HOJO Anaheim Hotel & Water Playground. As we know 2020 everything shut down, including the hotels and Disneyland! The staff went above and beyond to help us postpone the trip over and over and never once did I feel like a burden. When we finally successfully scheduled the trip it was perfect. Our room was so clean, hotel was decorated for the holidays adorably and the bed!! We both slept so well we could have stayed all day. Haha. It’s a short walk to the Disneyland Resort and is close many other businesses. The pool and water playground were very clean as was the entire property. Thank you so much HOJO! You made our Magical Dreams come true!

We stayed here during a quick trip to Disneyland. The walk to the park is about 8-10 min depending on how quickly you walk. All staff we encountered were incredibly friendly and helpful. We were in building 2 near the garden pool. The recently renovated room was clean and quiet during our trip.

Very clean rooms! Staff was welcoming and it’s a short walk to Disneyland. Definitely staying again! The newly renovated rooms are very nice and loved the balcony feature. The rooms are quiet, I could not hear anyone or the freeway near by. Definitely recommend.

Excellent rooms, fun water play area for kids, with hot tub for adults. Definitely resort quality with all of the nearby amenities. And walking distance to Disneyland. Plenty of parking. I had no problem finding a spot next to my room. Check-in was also easy, with plenty of check-in parking. All around, this is a great hotel.

I went with this hotel after seeing the sky high prices of the California Grand. We wanted to be within walking distance, and with more space/room since there were 3 of us. The fact that there were 2 bathrooms sealed the deal, so I reluctantly booked, not expecting much (I'm a bit of a hotel snob). We went with the 2 bedroom which was a master with a king bed/bathroom and a bunk bed/2nd bathroom suite. Best decision ever! The hotel staff was super friendly and accommodating. This was a last minute trip and they still managed to get some birthday balloons for my daughter in our room even though the gift shop was closed. Our room was recently updated. SUPER clean, PLENTY of room! After spending all day at the park, it was nice for all of us to have our "space" - you could just shut the bedroom door and it was almost like having separate adjoining rooms but without the risk. Our daughter is 16, and that room had a bunk bed, couch, table, bathroom and TV. we could have easily brought another friend. Our room had a giant comfortable bed, tv, bathroom, and refrigerator. The park was SUPER close. easily walkable. There is a McDonalds on the way, so we quickly would grab some breakfast. There are also some other restaurants that we never ate it, but they are literally within a block or two. there is a super cool pool/mini water park area but we never used it. We definitely would have had we stayed longer. This will be my go to from now on. Beyond happy.
