    Best Pool Off Property?

    Looking to take my daughter to DLR overnight and am looking to find an off property hotel with a great pool. I'd love to take her to the Disneyland Hotel but it's going to be $400+ for one night. Any Thoughts?

    Thanks
    Mark

    Oh, no this isn't good, posters from portland and tacoma, and now me from Salem, sharing about off site pools. My son and his friend really liked diving for palm nuts at the Motel 6. But the kicker is that after a week at Disneyland and ending the vacation at the Desert Hot Springs Marriott pool complex, my mocktail slurping son said, " This is more fun than Disneyland" How old is your child?

    I have never stayed off property, but I have heard many great things about Hojo's pool. It is themed to pirates, and has an interactive kid water play area.

    I will second the Howard Johnson's Pirate park. It isn't very big, but it has the nothing to 1 foot small wade pool and then the splash zones with two water slides. Every time the giant water bucket is going to dump a bell rings and kids scramble to get under the water. Plus there is a jacuzzi where an adult can sit and relax while keeping an eye on the kids. Additionally pluses are the free parking at the hotel and within walking distance even with a youngster and if to far, the ART shuttle has s top right in front of the hotel. They have a Kurieg coffee maker in all rooms and the customer service is excellent all the times we have stayed there. Our daughter loved the pool area at 4 and 5 and in fact enjoyed an afternoon spent there as much as the parks at times (our own little mermaid).

    WE just got back from our First Disneyland trip. We stayed at the HoJo and really enjoyed it. We had a 13, 12, 9 and 2 year old and they loved the water park themed to pirates. Their favorite part was the big bucket. The next time we visit Disneyland we are going to stay at the HoJo.
