There were 8 of us sharing 3 rooms and the rooms were nice and clean. One of the 3 fridges did not have numbers on it so it was too easy to freeze things. The air conditioning worked well but as per usual they were a little noisy. We noticed that large trucks going by on the I5 were vibrating...

Can't say how good this hoteland their staff are. We won a trip tpo the USa and so everything I did was "last minute". They accommodated us perfectly and were courteous and professional the whole time. I think that word of mouth back in Australia now has the Hojo as "the" hotel to stay at if you wish to visit...

We stayed here for 8 nights and were really happy with our selection. Great for families, short distance to Disneyland and many restaurants. Hotel has free Wi-Fi and laundry facilities (at a small cost) which we appreciated. It does not have restaurants, room service or mini bar however Mimi's Café is just across the road which has great food and...
