We needed a hotel w/in walking distance to DL & Ho Jos was across the street. They have nice rooms & friendly staff. Best thing- (from our room) you could see the fireworks rt over The Matterhorn. Worst thing-Zero Public Space-there is no Lobby, let alone bar/coffee shop etc. There is a little store that has decent supplies, but that's...

It "strives for 5" but falls just short off the mark, probably more like a 4.5 for us. It appears to be a favourite among kiwis and Australians as for our seven night stay we met no one other than people from those countries. The deluxe rooms are over looking the pool and despite our disappointment of not getting a...

We always stay at this hotel whenever we come to Disneyland. Closer to main gate than most of the other hotels in the area. Always well maintained and the staff are very helpful.

Great place to stay within walking distance to the parks. It's a retro resort with nice, clean rooms and a relaxing property. Lots of amenities.

Room was clean and well maintained. The pool could have been warmer. If you are a light sleeper do not ask for a room on the ground floor noisy in the morning.

Front desk staff are wonderful! Kids loved the water park area and we loved that we could leave Disney in the heat of the day, swim, take naps and walk back. Gift ship has snacks and souvenirs.

The hotel was ok. I wasn't pleased with the noise coming from the freeway surrounding the hotel. The internet also did not work in our room. I was also not happy that there was no room service available.
