Desert Palms is a perfectly adequate place to stay during a Disneyland trip. It's about a 10-minute walk from the park, so you get tons of families here. Rooms were clean and had decent amenities. The Desert Palms looks nice and tries to be upscale, but doesn't quite hit the mark, which is fine; we weren't here to hang out... More

We are a family of four and we stayed for four nights. The staff were friendly and the location was perfect for going to Disney, only a ten minute walk. The room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet at night. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready, so we spent a couple of... More

Within walking distance to the convention center. Probably could walk to Disney Parks, but may be to far for young children and elderly to walk. We stayed a Friday and Saturday night. We were considering staying on Thursday also, but when we called to ask the price for Thursday, the price was about $100 dollars more. They would not give... More

Hotel is well located near to Disney park, just 5 minutes walk. You will get all types of food outside hotel, Indian, Chinese, Italian, American etc. Staff is very courteous and friendly. Checked out the room in morning, planned the luggage in locker room, roamed around and picked the bags in evening to catch flight. Nice arrangements. We took family... More

If you stay here then its probably to be near disney. Its a basic, no frills place where the rooms have the essentials and comfy beds but not much more going for them. The check in staff were great, very helpful and went out of their way to accomodate. There is a bar/cafe that serves good fare, ot much more.... More

This hotel while close to Disneyland is probably one of the older properties in the area. I was in Anaheim to watch my daughter dance in the Disneyland parades, so it was an extended stay. Because this was my first time to Anaheim I took the advice of the trip coordinator and booked at the Desert Palms Hotel. The room... More

Don't believe the excellent reviews you will see on this site for the Desert Palms. We stayed there for a week and our room was in desperate need of a renovation. The carpet was awful and really should have been changed several years ago. There were stains everywhere on the carpet, and along one side of the bed, it was... More

I was very impressed and would definitely consider staying again. Breakfast was good each morning with great variety. We arrive about 2 for check and was surprised when the front desk told us we had been upgraded to a suite as a thank you for arriving early. Beds warm very comfortable. Hot water nice shower. Close to Disney. Still recommend... More

We loved staying at Desert Palms Hotel when we visited Disneyland. The location was perfect walking distance for a family of four with two kids who were so excited to get to Disneyland. The walk from the hotel was only 5 to 10 minutes long and was faster than taking the Disneyland shuttles since they made more stops before the... More
