3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for my daughters cheer competition this past weekend. While the customer service is good, the interior leaves A LOT to be desired. The rooms are on the larger side, but the decor is very used and old, lots on scratches,dings, and such. The pull out couches are very hard to sleep on. The amount of condensation that... More

We stayed here again for a business convention at Anaheim Convention Center which is conveniently located in the next block, so no parking fees! The hotel had lots of guests bound for Disneyland, which again is right around another corner, so no parking fees for them, either! This is a very well run hotel, with everything you need for a...

They had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. They were able to accommodate us and our 4 kids comfortably in the suite. Free wifi was a great benefit. There seemed to be unlimited amounts of food at breakfast. Great way to enjoy Disney.

I was unsure about staying here, given the busy location. I was attending a conference at the Anaheim Convention Center and also wanted to be close to Disney. It proved to be a great place to stay with excellent service. Everything exceeded my expectations, including the professional and caring service of front desk staff, housekeeping, breakfast servers and the folks... More

My overall experience, staying at the Dessert Palms Hotel was great! There were some minor maintenance issues, but for the money I spent... I would book my next stay at your hotel in a heartbeat. Everybody that I met that worked at the hotel was helpful and courteous. The hot breakfast was fabulous as well as the free parking not... More

Hotel is a couple of long blocks off the Disneyland entrance which is a good walk to get you warmed up. It is self service ( No Valet, No Bell Person) you haul your own luggage to your room and have limited number of luggage carts so good luck if it's a busy time. We stayed in a family suite... More

I don't need a lot of amenities at a hotel when I visit Disneyland, because I spend all my time at the park. My priorities are: o A clean place o Comfortable beds o Reasonable Price with breakfast to help with my budget o Parking (Free wifi) o Close to the park, so I can get off my achin' feet... More

Stayed in spacious double queen room. It and bath were mostly updated and mattresses were very comfortable. AC/Heater was newer & worked great. Room was at end of hall so pretty quiet. Windows were well insulated. Noise from street was minimal. Breakfast room was very spacious but the breakfast food was heavy on carbs with nothing fresh except apples &... More

My business plans required I be near Anaheim and I was looking for a good rate for a couple of days. I found the Desert Palms via a search and thought the location looked convenient and surrounded by things to do. On arrival, I spoke with Victor who understand I wasn't at the hotel for too much of the typical... More
