I just wanted to share what a great experience we had at the HOJO!
After reading hotel reviews here, I originally booked a 4 night stay, (March 14-18) at the HOJO using the "Entertainment Rate". Initially, I was unable to get the same room for all 4 nights. Also, the rate was not available for the first night so we were going to pay for a premium room the first night (with Micechat discount) and then have to switch from the premium room to a standard room for the following 3 nights. During check-in I asked if there was any way we could avoid a room-switch but still keep the same rate. "Eddy" found us a premium room for all four nights at the same original "Entertainment rate" of $59.00/night. I was thrilled.
The room was clean and fresh smelling. The beds were comfortable. My young children loved Castaway Cove and were able to watch Disney's fireworks from our balcony at night. It was easily within walking distance of the DisneyLand Park. The front desk personnel were friendly and extra helpful. They even provided us with a map of Disney and a guide to park hours so we could make our plans for the next morning.
I have been recommending this hotel to everyone who asks about our trip. Thank you for your tips on here that lead me to the "Entertainment card", it's discount, as well as the HOJO hotel! Being on a limited budget, the savings, as well as the comfort of the hotel at night, made our vacation a wonderful family experience!
