The waterpark area for kids is definitely the main attraction and makes this hotel a special location. Seeing the pirate ship themed water area, our son was elated and couldn't get enough. Plus, being within walking distance of Disneyland was a perk. Overall the value is great with the water area and is a good place for families. The kids...

Bldg 1 facing the parks provided an excellent stay. We could see the fireworks nightly. Everything was clean. However, if someone in your party ends up on the roll-away bed, prepare for a lot of complaining and a sore back. I also wish they provided a continental breakfast. but we knew both of these drawbacks going in, so wasn't a...

Simple accommodation, clean and tidy. Great pool for the kids. The shop is fantastic, friendly and helpful staff with a great range of stuff for sale from beer/wine to toiletries and Disney merchandise. The fireworks from Disneyland will wake you up at 9.30pm each night in case you wonder what all the noise is. Short walk to and from the...

This was our second time staying at the HOJO near Disney. Kids LOVE the water park. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only feedback would be to ask for a room with a microwave (since they cost $10 more).

My son's eyes lit up when he first entered our room. He was so excited to see that we had a view of the Matterhorn. On those evenings when we were at the hotel, the view of the fireworks was fantastic! Disneyland is a short walk away. From our hotel room to inside the park was 15 minutes. There are...
