4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We just stayed 4 nights at this hotel. I wasn't expecting a five star resort tho. If I would have wanted a 5 star experience I would have paid $1000 more to stay in the Disney resorts. Our room was clean and well stocked daily. Check in was smooth and friendly and the hotel was within walking distance of the park. The spray park for the kids was fabulous. Our 3 year old granddaughter loved it!!! I would say the only negative was that the room was a little dated. Like I stated tho for what we paid per night we would definately stay there again!

Room Tip: No restraunt or continental breakfast

My mom and I have been staying at the Ho Jo for years. It is the only hotel that we stay at when we visit the "Happiest Place on Earth." It is a very short walk across the street from Disneyland. The hotel staff is extremely nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Love that it is so close to Mimi's Cafe. I hope the hotel doesn't change a thing.

I booked this hotel on the recommendation of family and was so glad that I did. Firstly, only an 8 minute walk to Disneyland. Secondly, our room was great. Spacious, clean, cosy, and comfortable. Bathroom was modern and equipped with everything we needed. There have been some negative reviews about noise due to location of highway. Our block backed on to the highway and we didn't hear a thing. We travelled with two children and were very happy with this hotel.
