Great water park. Saved the vacation as Disneyland was a huge disappointment. Half the attractions were closed but still charging full price. Go to Knottsberry instead and stay at Howard Johnson. Great service/ price at both places.

We just got home from a 6 night stay at the HOJO! This was our first time staying here and we were very impressed! We got a room facing Disney (you can't see any of Disney but have a great view of the fireworks!) and loved sitting on the balcony watching the fireworks! Definitely beats fighting crowds to get back...

This hotel is further away from the Disney parks than the other "friends of disney" hotels but its still only about a 10 min walk to the front gates and its the only hotel that offers free parking.

Spacious room with big windows that allowed us to watch Dineys fireworks from our room. Clean rooms and bathrooms too! Easy access to Disneyland! Fast check in and check out!

Competent, professional staff with a wonderful attitude. 10 minutes walk to the parks. Both pools perfect for kids. There was construction across the street but it didn't bother us. Room was spacious, comfortable beds and nice bathroom. Good price.
