I have stayed here at least 10 times. Each and every time, the accommodations are pristine, the staff goes above and beyond to assist the guests, the location can't be beat (10 minute walk from hotel to Disneyland entrance gate) as it is an easy walk but far enough away to be quiet and Mimi's restaurant is right next door. You can call in your order while at Disneyland and pick it up on your way to your room.

Convenient walk to Disneyland, passing McDonald's on the way. This was our first trip to Disneyland and we were very impressed with this hotel. The splash park and pool are an excellent place for some downtime from Disney. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Market downstairs offered everything imaginable and was a the perfect place for us to shop for breakfast items, snacks, etc. Bathrooms could use a bit of a reno but otherwise no complaints. We were able to watch the fireworks from our balcony or the hottub each night and our building was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the HOJO at the beginning of January. The hotel was awesome! And a fantastic location. We stayed in a family room. It was perfect for us-our four kids loved it. The only complaint about the room would be that we were in one with a sky light and very thin windows. Apparently some of the rooms facing the highway have double thick windows. It wasn't a huge issue-but if you have small children who are light sleepers-make sure the room works before you settle in.

Room Tip: If booking a family room. Make sure you know if it is facing the highway or not.

Convenient walk to the parks with Mimis family restaurant and McDonalds on the way. We've been staying here for years and the remodeled retro rooms still look pretty good. The family suite is awesome if you can get it. Two full bedrooms and bathrooms. Definitely worth the price differential. On our non-park arrival or departure day, the kids enjoyed the water playground and hot tub. The on site mini market is handy and reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Howard Johnson late Jauuary 2014 after tourist season was over. We stayed on a ground floor room in building one. We found it to be so convenient and even though they told us we probably would probably not be able to see the disleyland fireworks, we had a perfect view. I found the staff to be so helpful. They have a little gift shop, as does most hotels in the area and the ladies that worked in the shop were so friendly. The location was perfect, it was only a 10 minute walk in the mornings to Disneyland, Calafornia Adventure and Downtown Disney. There is approximately 4 cafés for you to have breakfast at between the hotel and Disneyland, we ate at Mimi's every morning and loved it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it made our holiday special.
