This is what it should be. You needed to close the ["IMG"] brackets; the bracket on the left side is missing.


And here's the other one. You posted IMG]http://i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii55/njgumc/2323232327Ffp33Evq3D32423E4923E5-1.jpg[/IMG] Again missing the IMG bracket on the left. This is what you wanted:


I don't know how your pictures got to be uploaded so small. When I upload to photobucket I upload the original photo in its original size, then I resize it on photobucket. Maybe you clicked the wrong link to copy/paste here or maybe resized too small to thumbnail size or something?

Thanks..I figured something happened with the code..thanks for fixing that.
What happened was I posted the first one at work, and I didn't have the pictures on my computer there, so I saved them to photobucket from the site where I order my prints..and I think that explains the tiny size. The next set worked..I learn..but s l o w l y

Thanks, PiperPizzaz. All three of them were so crashed. It doesn't take much to get them to sleep after a long day at the park.

Thanks for the all the pics. We'll be staying at DLH in May, as we reckoned this might be our only visit to California.

However, we haven't even been yet, and I'm already thinking about things we'll have to leave until "next time".

I really have to stop researching and reading these boards!
(Yeah, right, like that'll happen!)

No worries! We all have to learn sometime and that's what these boards are for to help each other out. I'm still learning myself.

I have some pictures of the inside of a room a the Castle Inn, if any one wants me to post it. The room there was adequate.

This is a great idea.

I'd like to have a separate thread for each hotel with everyone's input, and collect them up in the FAQ sticky at the top of the board. It's time to update that information, anyway.

Hi everyone!
We are back from our wonderful trip and I wanted to report back on our nice hotel stay at HoJo's.

We had booked a DisneyViewRoom ($74/night entertainment rate) and received room 1*605 on the 6th floor right outside the elevator. Our room looked identical to DisneySuiteFreaks pictures in post #19 with the exception of our room having only one sink.

At first I was a bit concerned because the front desk reps said that the room had only one sink inside the bathroom. YIKES! How was this going to work out w/ a family of 5 that included 2 teenage girls.... Actually without a problem... the desk area in the room was so large w/ a nice sized mirror that after showers, the girls did makeup and hair without a problem. shooooo.....

Another concern was that we were located just outside the elevator, and I was worried about noise.... this too worked out fine, as the fans in the rooms are loud enough to block out any road or hallway noise. Our family sleeps with noisemakers or fans in our rooms at home to make white noise, and the HoJo's A/C units provided exactly that for us. Because of the fan humm, it also blocked out any street noise. The fan runs consistently (not cutting on and off as some units do.)

Things I loved most about HoJo's...
Size of the room
Fridge, Microwave and Coffeepot
Excellent housekeeping
The citrus scented bath products OMG!
Fireworks from the balcony
Beds

Things that could have been better...
-Internet issues on several days

-When the rollaway bed was brought up, housekeeping said it was the last one and that we may want to put the mattress directly on the floor because the springs were shot. Our little guy didn't notice the springs luckily....a teenager may complain.

-The walk was a bit farther than what I had anticipated, but it was convenient to pop into MiMi's and McDonald's on the walk for an extra cup of coffee or yogurt parfait.

One of the best things that I have learned from our travels, is that it is utmost to manage your expectations. If I set my expectations too high, than I will undoubtably be disappointed. This is why I am so thankful for the Disboards. If I had expected a 5 star hotel in HoJo's, I would have been a bit sad....but it was a great 3 star experience. And you absolutely can't complain about the rate! Had I paid hundreds, I would have expected a premium experience. The pictures that were posted prior to our arrival were right on par, and I am so grateful to everyone who has posted.

I hope others will continue to post reviews and photos to help those who are still questioning which hotel to choose.

Thanks again Everyone!!!

If you can cross to the Disneyland side, at the light right at the corner where Ho Jo's and Mimi's is, you miss out on walking through the crowds, it's a seven minute walk. If the park opens at 10am, be ready to go through bag check and the turnstiles before 9am as Main Street will be open. If it's same park opening time for both parks and it's early entry (MM) for DL, you may want to go to DCA first. The advantage of being on the plaza between both parks is that you can visually see the lines going into each park.

You will love HoJo's. I was on the 4th floor with a great Matterhorn view. I did not eat at Mimi's, just picked up muffins for the morning from there, but I have eaten there in the past and love their food. There are lots of places to eat along the main avenue. (If you are going to DL and getting coffee, on the right side of Main Street is the Market house, get your coffee there and save your receipt for refills, I did this every day and it was fun telling others that I had learned this on the Dis)

Have a wonderful time!!!!
