Stayed for 7 nights. Very helpful front desk, clean tidy rooms - not luxurious but perfect for our needs. A short walk to Disney was so convenient. Free parking available. Breakfast in the morning was good. Recommend this hotel.

Like most hotels within walking distance of Disneyland, this is not an especially modern property. Though recently renovated, its age shows right away. However, over a six night stay, the less obvious but equally important features shine through, the most significant of which is the outstanding customer service. The property is generally clean and well-maintained. There is a rather basic... More

We stayed 3 nights here and were very happy with our stay. The front desk was always helpful and friendly. The room (we had a kids suite) was on the small side for what it was, but perfectly adequate and extremely clean. Plus the bunk beds were a huge hit with my kids and the balcony, though too tiny for... More

We stopped at Desert Palms for three weeks in Aug Sept 2012. We had adjoining rooms which were comfortable and well maintained. Staff at the hotel were always very friendly and helpful. Coming from England they offered plenty of 'local' tips. Breakfast was good. Pool a little small. Overall we would not hesitate in stopping again and had a great... More

We spent 6 nights at the Desert Palms (this is the second time we have chosen to stay here).. The location is good - a 10 minute walk to the main gates of Disneyland - a shuttle is available if the walk is too much at the end of the day ($2 per person)... located next to a 7/11 which... More

We stayed in this hotel for 6 days for our disney vacation. We found this hotel to be great! Since this was our second trip to disney, we had high expectations considering the last hotel we stayed in was a total dissapointment. We had the 2 room suite with 2 bathrooms and 4 queen beds. This room had SO much... More

Our stay was over the weekend of 09-29-12 to 10-01-12. The staff friendly and helpful, Jenny the desk clerk, went out of her way to make sure all of our needs were taken care of, very mindful to my family. Pointed out places to eat, bus routes, shuttle information, just a top shelve stay. The hotel is very clean and... More

OK, so the title can apply to a myriads of hotels along Katella Avenue but this is my first time to Anaheim so for what it's worth, I found the Desert Palms hotel to be well located (7 minutes walk to Disneyland/California Adventure Park; and a few minutes' walk to food outlets). The room I had was a 2 bedroom... More

Staff very friendly, we stayed in a a family suite that can accommodate a family of eight very efficient for older teenage children as they had their own area. Easy walk to Disneyland, the 711 came in very handy just been next door. Plenty of choice for breakfast especially the waffle station would highly recommend this hotel.
