I stayed here with a music group from New Zealand. We were based here for 5 nights as a part of a North American tour. The rooms were ok, a little dated but nicely appointed. They were certainly spacious enough. The pool/spa was good. No complaints here. The breakfast was ok, nothing special. Probably the best thing about this hotel... More

We spent 5 nights at this hotel. The staff was very kind, helpful and courteous. Check in was quick and simple. Our Deluxe room overlooked the palm trees on Katella, and was was very quiet. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. no funny odors, and the towels were soft. The little fridge and microwave was a very nice touch.... More

We booked this hotel through Costco travel. They listed it as a mid range hotel and the reviews put it between 3 1/2 - 4 stars but I say more like 2 1/2-3 stars.Here is a list of pros and cons 1. Old hotel, the roof leaked so much it required a 5 gallon bucket. There are only 2 areas... More

I've stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times. I LOVED the breakfast they have in the mornings, country potatoes and waffles were my go-to. The rooms were clean and the beds and pillows were so comfortable, the front desk was always super accommodating. We stopped at the gift shop for tylenol and looked around, they had cute gifts.. obviously... More

Conveniently located to restaurants and Disneyland, all within walking distance. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed our daily breakfast which was a good start to the day. The service was great and very helpful.

This hotel is very convenient to the convention center but not as expensive as some of the other options. The breakfast was a nice touch. Walking distance to Disney. Would stay there again. Overall, a good value for the money. Also, several eating options close by.

I stayed here with my husband and daughter for a trip to Disneyland in November 2014. First off, we booked the wrong hotel. We were looking for Desert hotel that is across the street from Disneyland. But that was our fault because we didn't check the address. My daughter just turned 6 and the location is basically behind California Adventure.... More

We booked 5 rooms at the Desert Palms hotel (18 people total) for a 4 night stay in November. The location of the hotel was great, we were able to walk to Disneyland and to the restaurants that surround the hotel and area. Check in at the hotel was pretty easy, they tried to accommodate all of our rooms together... More

We stayed here for 8 nights in November (2 adults, 2 kids) We just had a deluxe room but it was plenty big enough for the 4 of us and all our luggage. The layout of our room was different to the photos on the website so maybe our room was larger than normal? Staff were very friendly and we... More
