Couldn't ask for much closer to the Park than the Desert Palms. Comfortable rooms ( two queen size beds in each room for us) , friendly service through out the hotel and a free breakfast as well. Staff were very accommodating. We asked for an early check in and they were able to provide a great spot for us. Spacious... More

This hotel was very close to disney land, but getting correct information about bus service from the front desk was hit and miss. Breakfast brunch was adequate but nothing special. Housekeeping forgot to give us coffee, and hand towels... front desk did not apologize for this. Lots of kids, so noise level was kind of high. All in all it... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It is set up nicely to be a comfortable stay while you enjoy Disneyland. We liked that we didn't have to pay for parking (hopefully that is still true as you read this). We enjoyed the breakfast and filled up before walking to the park. In the evening the park closed earlier, the kids liked... More

The room was nice and the bath was big. We were quickly moved off third floor, bad air quality because from bath rono's. The new room was ready and we moved without a problem. The biggest problem is the so called breakfast. I know it's free and not to expect much, but I did expect food that looked or tasted... More

I was at ANOTHER convention, which is always tiring & full of unpleasantness, staying at this property made all of that better. Close to the convention, EASY to access & NICE rooms don't always come with staff this pleasant! You owe it to yourself to stay at this great property.

Desert Palms is where we stay for all of our Disney travel trips. It's close to the parks, (about a 7 minute walk), and it's always clean and comfy to come "home" to at the end of a long day. There's plenty of room to spread out in the suites, which is nice so the little one who wants to... More

Stayed here with a group of young basketballs on a tour and the staff were sensational catering for a large group, the rooms were clean and spacious and the location was superb. I would not hesitate to recommend the Desert Palms.

Within 5 minutes, I knew I was in trouble. Even though I had a written confirmation in hand, the front desk staff told m plus a manager, for them to figure out that we DID have a reservation for 8 days! Next issue was the noise in the room directly above us. It was reported to management every single night,... More

Attended CHA in Anaheim and stayed at the Desert Palms for the first time. Plenty of free parking in the garage below the building, great breakfast every morning, a very reasonable rate per night, and a friendly, happy staff made it a great stay.
