“Excellent location, good clean room. Good value.”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Our 2 beds room has a patio door facing the highway. Our room is on the 6th floor in the building 1 and has the sound proofing recently done. The sound proofing job is amazing and I didn't even hear the highway 5 during the busiest time of the day! One of the problem with the sound proofing patio door is that blocks the Wi-Fi signal (according to the front desk staff)! We can't use the in room Wi-Fi provided by the hotel as the signal is too weak to be picked up by our phone and laptop. End up have to take a laptop to the lobby area to use their Wi-Fi.

The room is a bit old and carpet is old and wrinkle, A/C unit is noisier than the highway. However the room is clean and roomy. The coffee machine is nice and they always replenish the coffee each day. They don't put decafe coffee in the coffee pod stand, you can ask front desk for decafe coffee.

Walking to the Disneyland park is about 15 minutes (and 20 minutes return after a long long day in the park). Parking is free. This hotel will be nicer if free breakfast is provided. Weather was too cold to use the water park at the time of stay.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the park in stead of the highway, lower floor rooms may have less noise. Ask to m...

Just a fun place for our kids. The waterpark was the perfect place to be after a morning at Disney. The kids got to play in the water and we got to relax and catch some sun and sleep. The guys at the front desk were great, very helpful and kind. love it.

Room Tip: So close that u can walk to Disney.

We really enjoyed this hotel. Its across the street from Disney. We'd wake up very early, and either eat in the room, or at Mimi's or McDonalds. Mimi's is next to the hotel, with great food and a full bar. We stayed in a Kids Suite - loved it. There are bunk beds in the second room, and we were happy to have some privacy in our own room. The waterpark at the hotel is really fun. There is also an adult pool (away from the kiddie area, if you want to enjoy some quiet time). The grounds are beautiful. VERY CLEAN. This is a great place to stay!

Room Tip: IF you want a room with a Disney view, note that there are fireworks at Disney every night at 9pm an...

This is a little late but I stayed here in September for my first 5k during RunDisney's Marathon weekend. We checked in really late and they were really nice to us at check in which was a great deal I found via Orbitz. The room was really big! I fit two portable cribs with tons of room to spare. My twin boys and my 5 yr had enough room to play, etc. I believe we were in Building 1 which faced the freeway but it was not loud at all. They store they have is great, one of my boys was running a fever and yes I def. paid more for the advil but I needed it Asap! The best part of the hotel is the Pirate's Cove small water park was awesome. Beat the heat and head back to the park! They have toddler area and a bigger kids area which is awesome. I love it here and I am very picky where I stay. I usually prefer Embassy Suites or the Hyatt but the HoJo is just as Awesome! If you really want to take a look at their rooms go to the HoJo Anahiem website they have youtube videos they made of tours for each room and also pictures of the layouts of each room which is a bonus! Can't say enough about the great place!

Room Tip: Walking distance to Disneyland but it is about 5-10 minutes to the ticket booths. Feet may be be hur...
