Overall, we had a pleasant stay at the Hojo. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the grounds are well maintained. Our children enjoyed the pools, and the "walk to Disney" is really not that bad. However, this hotel is due for a major gut job! It's VERY dated, and the buildings appear to have not been touched since about the late 80's or very early 90's. They try to pass it off as "retro", and even go so far as to promote this retro feel like it would be appealing to guests...but it's not. The gift shop is handy if you want something basic like a soda or a chocolate bar, but they focus on selling Disney souvenirs when they should be selling more food products. There is an excellent restaurant across the street called Mimi's, but if you want snacks in the evening your choices will be limited.
It is obvious that everyone at this hotel works hard to ensure that guests are happy, and it shows. If you're looking for a basic room with a great pool for the kids, then you will not be disappointed.
