Pros: Children's area. Rooms nice and clean.
Nice hotel with area for children to play in water without so much worry of a regular pool. Friendly and helpful. Snack area was a plus. Didn't have to leave to go eat every meal. Valet was very helpful. Hotel was clean and rooms were nice.

Second stay at the HoJoPosted 25-Jul-2014
Pros: Location, walking distance to Disney and close to a good restaurant. Rooms were well kept and had a light and airy feel .
Cons: More places to put things in the bathroom. More hooks to hang towels and more counter space . Poor Wifi signal
We were very pleased with our second visit at the Ho Jo in Anaheim. Even though the property is older it is extremely well maintained and we enjoyed the retro decor . The rooms were bright and comfortable .We were especially impressed with the new memory foam mattresses and luxurious pillows! Nice! It was great to have the fridge in the room as we were able to buy a few groceries and save some money which is always a plus when you are in Disneyland. We usually stayed at the park in the mornings and spent the afternoons by the pool .The pool areas are very well kept and made a great diversion from our hurried pace at Disney. When the kids were small they loved the kiddy pool but now that they are older we were happy to have the option of the second pool to relax in and enjoy the quieter atmosphere.The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly and made our stay very welcoming .

Pros: Water park. Location near to Disney.
Cons: Microwaves in every room. Bigger refrigerators.
Location: About a mile from the actual entrance to Disney because you had to walk to the entrance to the grounds, but then walk through the bus loading area.
It was further from the gate of Disney than I'd anticipated -- probably a mile to the actual gate into the park. It was nice to have all the restaurants nearby. Good (not great) view of the nightly fireworks from the hotel. Really nice grounds. Comfortable rooms. Need to get microwaves in every room. We got one because I asked for one and they changed our original room. Fridges are way too small. Pools are great. Hot tub is great. Waterpark was a hit. Staff very friendly.

Great location and enjoyed the water park.Posted 21-Jul-2014
Pros: Nice spacious room. Great skylights. Water park was small but a lot of fun for the family. Close to Disneyland.
Cons: Carpets could be replaced.
Location: Disneyland and CA Adventure Park are two blocks away if walking. Mimi's Café and McDonald's are close.
Hotel let us check in early which was great after driving 8 hours. Check was easy and pleasant. Parking accessible to room. Room was large and had an extra foldout cot. Appreciated no extra fees for cot, parking and WiFi.

Not a water park experiencePosted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: It was clean, the ground were clean and room was clean. We were allowed to check in about an hour before the 4pm time too.
Cons: It would be nice to have menus of local places that would deliver food, even Pizza or something so that after a long day we didn't have to go out.
Location: It is right across the street from Disneyland if you wanted to walk.
Pretty disappointed in the hotel and size of the water playground. The hotel was clean, however there was no elevators to go to second floor room, only stairs. Made it difficult to lug children, luggage, ice chest, stroller and everything up and down small stairs so that was a negative. I thought the water playground would be a little bit better but it is mainly approproiate for only small children as my 6 year told was bored in less than 5 minutes. The other pool is nice sized but pretty crowded because of there being NO pool where the water playground is, just splash pad. BIG complaint is that there is NO food at the hotel. Restaurants are across the street if you wanted to walk, but hotel gift shop sells bread, dry ceral, and nothing to have a meal and relax in your room with for sure. So definitely disappointed on many levels but the lack of normal basic items. The room had 2 HUGE skylights in it, so the minute the sun came up, it was so bright there was no trying to sleep a little bit.

Hotel StayPosted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: Hotel staff - reception and cleaning staff were exceptional. Children's pool area was very entertaining.
Cons: Hotel décor, inside and outside - needs an uplift in how it looks. Is now looking outdated and old.
Location: Easy to access Disneyland/California Park and food places. Also tour buses were easily available, except they tended to drop us off last.
Excellent hotel service from all staff members - very pleasant manners and extremely helpful. Very patient and understanding - best service we had in America. We had no complaints except hotel probably was starting to show its age and that an uplift in how it looked was required now.

Pros: Size of room, water park and pools, nearness to Disney
Cons: A little updating of the rooms (bathrooms, carpet)
Location: Disney within walking distance, lots of restaurants, outlet mall a 10 min drive away
We stayed here with our two young kids, it was excellent. Walk to Disney in no time, home for a rest in the afternoon, then a great water park to fill the day up. Lots of restaurants close by who deliver, nice big room (a little dated but clean), and a really well stocked lobby store. We will definitely stay here again!!
