Pleasantly surprised at how great the room was. The staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast was hot and plentiful. I would have gave it 5 stars but the carpet needs some attention. Will definitely stay here again.

We really liked this hotel! The free parking was fantastic, and the free breakfast was great! Your typical fare: eggs, toast, cereal, yogurt, fruit, muffins, but some added bonuses that changed each day (sausage or hot oatmeal or biscuits and gravy). The staff was excellent! We asked if we could get a room with a view of the fireworks because... More

This hotel looked ideal: close to the Disneyland entrance, kitchen suite ideal for families, next to 7-11, free parking, pool and breakfast was included. But our stay was disappointing and extremely expensive. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. AIR CONDITIONING When we first arrived and UNPACKED EVERYTHING. We noticed the fan was making weird sounds. They called maintenance and... More

What a great family hotel. The rooms were spacious, we are a family of 5, 2 Queens and sofa bed. It is only a 10 minute walk from Disney Land. Being able to have breakfast daily was a bonus. The breakfast was great. It is exactly what we wanted, we were there 3 days and our plan was to visit... More

We stayed at Desert Palm December 15th to 22nd. We were very lucky that a room was available early in the morning after a long flight from Melbourne Australia. We stayed in a Yuha Suite and found it to be always clean.The extra bedroom was fantastic and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was nice and sitting outside was great... More

Clean hotel. Complimentary breakfast, wi-fi, and parking. Walking distance to Disneyland...no need to pay $18+ for parking at the Disneyland parking lot. For big families they have bunk beds along with pull out sofa which was neat. Friendly staff.

We have stayed in a lot of hotels. I realise you get what you pay for but this hotel was awful. The rooms are small. Tue walls are paper thin as are the ceilings. We could hear everything the people upstairs were doing. Anytime anyone had a shower in the hotel you could hear the water running through the pipes... More

We watched the Disneyland New Years fireworks from our room, such a great view. The walk to the park is such a short distance its not worth using the ART bus. The buffet breakfast was very good, the staff bussed the tables quickly and food was hot and plentiful.

I come to Disneyland a few times a year and most often stay at this hotel. I find it clean, safe, and comfortable. I believe I have written other reviews on this place before, but this review will focus on the service and care the give you as a frequent stay-er. I called to make my reservation and they had...
