It was my children's first trip to LA and Disneyland so were very excited except when we arrived at Desert Palms Hotel! We had a "Deluxe Suite" with two Queen sized beds. The room was dark and dirty and our view was of a brick wall and carpark! The room was noisy and we had a vending machine right outside... More

I and my family consisting of one adult daughter and our two teen daughters had a blast at this hotel. Everything seem to be at our fingertips. Immediately when we arrived at this hotel, we were upgraded surprisingly from a deluxe 2-Queen beds bedroom to a Jr. Suite and at no extra cost. We all loved that our hotel room... More

I booked this room as the ratings were supporting this hotel to be very good. I booked this trip in February for my son's 10th birthday. I called the hotel and requested a room that over looked Disneyland... The lady I spoke with was excited that we choose this hotel to stay to celebrate my son's birthday and his 1st... More

Having scheduled another Disneyland vacation, we again choose to stay here. This trip we noticed things we didn't see before. We've been to the hotel during major renovations, such as a carpet swap and major interior painting. This time, we noticed more of the up-keep type stuff. For example, we did notice in the morning an employee notating places on... More

My family and I had a great stay at the Desert Palms. We are a family of 5, 3 who are teenagers we stayed in a Yula Family suite. It was great as you could close the door to the kids room. We were on the back of the hotel and had a perfect view of the fireworks at Disney... More

Desert Palms is a great family base to visit Disneyland. Disneyland main gate is about a 10 minute walk away. We also arranged bus tours to SeaWorld, Universal Studios and Knott's Berry Farm. The rooms was comfortable and serviced daily. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with good, strong coffee available. The pool is a bit small but just big enough... More

We have tried multiple hotels in the Disneyland area and this is now my least favorite. We were so disappointed with the Desert Palms. We paid for a Yuha suite to allow ample room for our family of 5. We were surprised to find this bought us two tiny rooms with an all-glass shower-type door linking them together. What??? Part...

Stayed at this hotel for a last minute trip to Disneyland. The hotel is very close, and they offer underground parking. $11/day for resort fees to basically park there and use their facility--but we were told all hotels charge a fee. Free breakfast was great for a meal before hitting Disney. Room was smallish, but fine for the 3 of... More

Room service leaves something to be desired... Items on the menu are not available and requested substitutes (that are available) are rejected by the order taker with a snide comment like "you can go order somewhere else if you don't like what we have."
