This must be my 7th stay over the last ten years. HOJO is right for so many reasons,

1-family friendly, we stayed with our 5 year old, plenty of kids running around having fun and never a scowl from any staff.
2-rooms are huge, enough space for bags and shopping
3-clean and comfortable, the rooms were serviced quickly and without fuss.
4-close to disney, a 15 minute walk door to door.
5-free parking, close to the motorways

While an older property, it is perfect for those first time visitors to disney or the local area, all of the tour buses stop off, it is an easy 40 mins from LAX. We arrived early (12pm) and had a room cleaned quickly for us, staying in the tower block we were concerned about the motorway noise, but better sound proofing has been out into place, very hard to hear anything!

The staff are very obliging, friendly and have a permanent smile. My 2013/14 recommendation for all.

This is my first HoJo experience in many years because I found them to be kind of pricey. This location however, was far from that, with the convenience factor built right in. I loved the retro feel about this hotel, and the immaculately kept grounds. It was a fantastic experience just to walk out onto your patio/balcony and be able to see colorful fountains and plants.

The best part about this hotel though? It's proximity to the Disneyland Resort. It is literally across the street from Disneyland park, and only an eight minute walk from room to entrance gate. It could not have been more convenient to stay anywhere else, unless it was on the Disney property. I also loved the balcony my room had because I could see the Disneyland fireworks from the hotel, and even hear the music from the parks!

The rooms are huge, and very well kept. The separate vanity and bathroom allowed my family to all get ready at the same time. Another awesome thing that this hotel had was a Keurig brewer and free K-cups too! That allowed us to drink a variety of coffee in the morning!

The staff was fantastic, and very accommodating to my mother who is unable to climb stairs very well, and made sure that we had a ground-level room that worked perfectly! They are always happy to help, at any time, and even walked me through connecting to the Wi-Fi when my iPad didn't want to!

Over all? This is a must-stay location for anyone looking for a fantastic hotel close to the Disneyland Resort!

The room was clean and spacious and the front desk gave us a room facing Disneyland. That was much appreciated, especially by my 5 year old granddaughter.
