“Friendly Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Essentially right across the street from Disneyland. The place is somewhat older but certainly well kept. The staff were fantastic and unlike others, I have no complaints about the continental breakfast.

My room clean and I really liked that it was recently renovated. I loved having oatmeal for breakfast as that is how I tend to start my day back at home. Check in clerks were pleasant as were the valets. We had an oversized vehicle, but they had no problems getting it out quickly for us.

Room Tip: The king sized bed rooms have a pullout sofa. Great for when you have an extra person come along at...

My family stayed here at the begging of October for four nights, one being Disneyland's Mickey's Halloween Party. The hotel was completely booked because of the event.

Room: The hotel is a bit on the older side (no more then any of the other hotels in the area) but they are in the middle of a remodel. We headed out everyday as soon as the park opened and came back close to / if not when the park closed. There was no noise from the remodel whenever we were in the hotel. The hotel staff come every day to clean the room and bring fresh towels.

Location: It could not be better! You are right across the street from the entrance to Disneyland / California adventures.

Parking: There is parking on site, but they charge a daily fee. Yes, parking does fill up on Friday and Saturday nights but they do guarantee you a spot for at least one car per room.

Breakfast: They do offer a free breakfast. Its the same at every hotel; you get pastries and juice and coffee. There are mini fridges in the room. I would advise you to buy some milk or juice and just have cereal in room.

Clean: The property is clean, but old.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone staying at a good neighbor hotel outside Disney. For the location, the price can not be beat!

Room Tip: Try to get a room near an elevator but not next to the elevator

We have stayed at the Desert Inn several times and are happy with the service we receive every time. The staff responds to requests and issues quickly keeping us comfortable and happy. While the price has risen considerably since the first time we stayed it's still one of the best prices near Disneyland. We find the rooms comfortable and clean. It amazes me when people complain about the included breakfast. When we're on vacation we try to eat minimally and find toast, fruit and coffee does us well. I would like to see peanut butter included but we have learned to bring our own. While there are signs up saying it's a non smoking facility there are ashtrays around and we walked past smokers several times. It would be nice to see it enforced. We are hoping to do another family vacation in 2015 and the Desert Inn will be on the list of ones to check first.

The room was decent and clean. The maid service was quick and efficient. The fridge was a good size for storing food to cook in our room.

My only complaint and room for improvement is the breakfast. There is toast, danish, cold cereal, oatmeal, apple/banana, and juices. Not much variety for 5 mornings. But I did come prepared and brought bacon/eggs and other breakfast foods to supplement with the microwave and waffle maker we brought for our room.

As everyone says, the location is excellent and for a family of 8, the parlor suite was a great option and a reasonable price.

The parking/valet service was excellent. They always helped us find the best spot for our large vehicle and if there wasn't a spot they would reserve one for us to move to as soon as someone left. Well worth the parking fee and the additional employees to help regulate the parking.

Room Tip: The family suites that have more than one bathroom are an excellent very useful option.

We checked in last weekend to a C-1 room for a weeks stay. The C-1 size was perfect. Rooms were clean and quiet. The in-room safe is a nice plus. The beds were so comfortable. Kids used the free Wi-Fi for their handheld devices and said it worked fine. I loved the location, an easy walk to the parks. Restaurants close by for a full meal, before or after a day in the parks. I really appreciated the front desk staff's assistance with a last minute reservation change. It made the stay so much more enjoyable. Juan S. @ DI&S Thanks !!
We have stayed here before and will stay here on future trips to Disneyland!!
