We have tried 3 other hotels in the Disneyland area. HoJo is definitely a winner with us. We have 3 kids--7, 13, and 16. The room was spacious enough for all 5 of us, including the rollaway bed (no extra charge!). Having a real fridge in the room--not a mini-bar--is fantastic when you travel with kids.
The room was very clean, and everything was in good repair--as was the case with other areas of the hotel (except for the video arcade, with some broken machines.) One morning I went out early and saw HoJo employees giving the exterior areas a thorough scrubbing down. It reminded me of the attention to cleanliness you see at Disneyland itself.
Even though our room faced the freeway, there are these gigantic pine trees that stretch all the way to the top of the hotel, providing sort of a screen. We were not bothered by noise at all.
The pool area was very popular with our kids. HoJo staffers kept the fresh towels coming.
It took us less than 10 minutes to walk from our room to the Disneyland turnstiles.
We'll be back, no doubt.
