We stayed at the HoJo the last week of May and absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and roomy. I have 3 kids and the fridge and microwave saved us tons of time and money. The kids loved coming back to the hotel to swim/play on pirate ship and then we'd just eat and rest. The walk was no problem and I'm no athlete. You walk past several other hotels on the way to Disneyland but I'd stay at the Howard Johnson again HANDS DOWN. There are two pools. One for older kids and the other is a huge pirate ship with all kids of bells and whistles. There's also a hot tub at that pool where Mom and Dad can sit and still see kids. We felt like we won the hotel room lottery at $75 a nite. We felt completely safe and secure. Big balcony. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Oh-and you walk past several restaurants on the way from Disneyland so it's easy to pick up lunch or dinner and save. (McDonalds, Quiznos, Mimi's to name a few) ENJOY!!!
