“Very Good Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We were there for four nights for a conference and Disneyland. The hotel is very convenient to the Anaheim Convention Center. It took us only a few minutes to get to our conference each morning. Disneyland is just behind the hotel, but the walk is a few blocks to the entry gates--still very easy and fast to get there. The hotel's parking and complimentary breakfast make it a great value for hotels in that area. Our room was very clean, attractive, and had all the extras like refrigerator, microwave, iron, and coffee maker. We go every spring, and have stayed in so many of the hotels near the convention center. This was the best.

Room Tip: We were in 116, though it was a corner with the parking lot outside, we heard no noise.

We ended up selecting the Palms because of the breakfast knowing this trip would be expensive enough just getting into Disneyland. We were very happy with our room it was clean & comfortable. The staff was very friendly & helpful & we enjoyed the pool & hot tub one of the nights we stayed there. The location is very convenient to stores & very good reasonably priced food.

We utilized the ART transit and on our first day we waited a little longet than we had expected however the driver was kind enough to point out if we cross the street we will have a bus pick every few minutes. So that was the last time we we had to wait during our five day trip. We started our days with a smoothy from the juice shop by the bus stop and off to Disneyland we went.

We found this hotel to be our pick for future visits due to the breakfast & the convenient location. We'll be setting up our next reservations soon so maybe we'll see you around.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Desert Palms Hotel on March 25 - March 29, 2012. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was helpful to have breakfast there every morning and that was actually the main reason I pick Desert Palms was for the Breakfast. I would gladly recommend your hotel to my friends and family.

My sister and I took a girls trip to Disneyland and stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The room was quiet and extremely clean. The staff was helpful and I hope to stay here every time I visit the happiest place on earth!

We've stayed in several national chain hotels over the years that we have come to Disneyland and we've finally found a place where we will stay again. We stayed in a child-suite with 4 children. The bunk beds and fold out couch was plenty of room for the 4 children. The breakfast was always hot and fresh. We would have preferred a little more variety, however, there was no complaint. The staff was attentive and friendly. We had a situation where one of our children got sick in a bed and the staff was quickly there to retrieve the soiled linens and to remake the bed. We will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Get one of the suites and bring a bathing suit. The pool is heated.
