I've seen some threads on these 2 hotels, but here's a slight twist. Which place would you stay at with a family of 6 (2 adults, an 8 yr old, twin 6 yr olds, and a 2 yr old)? Right now I have a suite reserved at both places for 5 nights, but we've never stayed at HOJO's and only stayed once at Desert Inn. My concern is: Will the HOJO's be worth the extra walking time since Desert Inn is right across the street, and also will the kids even want to use HOJO's swimming/water pad area in February? I thought the Desert Inn had a bit of a dirty feel to it, but we LOVED the location! HOJO's splash pad looks awesome though, but it's going to be the beginning of February! Can you see why I debate? Your thoughts?
