Very clean and spacious!! We were greeted with kindness and front desk employees were helpful with tourist information. The rooms had great views of Disneyland (Matterhorn) and my kids loved they could watch Netflix in the room.

Hotel's Favorite
I thoroughly researched just about every hotel on Harbour Bv before I booked the HoJo and I was so nervous leading up to this trip hoping that I had made the right decision. My family have stayed in a lot of hotels and of course I wanted our first Disneyland trip to be absolutely perfect. Thankfully we were delighted with our 4 night stay at the HoJo. Check in was friendly but brief which was what we needed after a long drive. We had reserved a room in Building 1 with a Disneyland view (and paid a little extra for it) and we were very pleased with it. It was spotlessly clean, modern, spacious with a gorgeous view across to the monorail and the Matterhorn! I loved the vintage Disney touches in the artworks. The blinds were excellent and blocked out the light to pitch darkness which was great for afternoon naps for the kids. Housekeeping knocked on our door a few times the first afternoon during naptime so we quickly found the do not disturb hanger and this didn’t happen again. We’re pretty quick walkers and found it only took us 7 minutes to get to the Disneyland gates- a very easy walk even with two small kids. We visited Castaway Cove - the splash zone- one afternoon and the kids loved it. I particularly liked that Building 1 has internal stairwells so I felt it was a bit more secure than some of the older motel style properties. I was always super keen to get up and going in the mornings, and it was great to be able to get ready in the well lit bathroom as the kids slept a little longer. The coffee machine was a great asset too, as well as the fridge that we stocked up with snacks. Because reception was in a separate building we didn’t really get to interact with the staff too much- check out was similarly brief. Parking on site was easy and free. I would happily stay here again and will certainly be recommending the HoJo to friends planning their Disneyland holidays!

Thank you for reviewing your most recent stay with us. We are so thrilled to see that, even though there are hundreds of hotels on Harbor Blvd, you and your family decided to stay with us for your Disneyland vacation! It is so great to hear that you loved all of the amenities that we have added to our newly renovated Building 1- such as vintage Disney touches, the well lit bathroom, gorgeous view of the Monorail & Matterhorn and our black out curtains which make the room very accessible for an afternoon nap for the kids. We are also so excited to hear that your kids loved our Waterpark & Playground area and were able to use the facility as a relaxing break during your long days at Disneyland. We cannot wait to see you and your family again during your next trip to Disneyland.

We arrived at the HJ about 11:30am on Thursday 3/12/20 for a 75th b-day celebration and Christmas present for my nieces & nephew. Knew we were early for check-in but the HJ had one room ready so we were able to check-in and get situated before we took off for Disneyland. Before we left the front desk called and said the second room was ready, this was a about 20 minutes later. Rooms were clean, comfortable and very roomy for the 6 of us. When we had to check out early due to Disneyland shutting down because of the Coronovirus, HJ was very sympathetic to our issue to get back home. Most definitely will be returning to complete this trip
