“Nice hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and it is always clean and the staff are curteous. It it fairly close to Disneyland and they have a couple of different room sizes to accomodate families.

We stayed here with or 4 young children. The kids had there own room (set of bunks and a rollaway). In the room we had, there would be no room for a cot if the rollaway bed is out.
This hotel is close to Disneyland. It was very clean. We expected it to be noisy given that it is a family hotel, but it was quieter than we thought it would be. We had a room on the 4th floor.
Breakfast wasn't great, and it was disappointing how much rubbish was created (polystyrene plates, cups, plastic knives and forks). It would be nice to have some healthier options at breakfast - more fruit and a healthier cereal.
Would definitely stay here again. Some rooms had kitchenettes (so could self cater breakfast).
Some room have a view over Disneyland, so you can watch the fireworks from the balcony.

We LOVE This hotel. It is so convenient and has more than you could ask for when visiting Anaheim, especially Disneyland. The walk to Disney is super short, and the value and condition of this hotel compared to all the other hotels within walking distance is just way above and beyond. Breakfast included in the rates with a rooftop area that has a view of CA right next to it is a huge plus. The rooms are very clean, very nice, and fun for kids and families. To our surprise we were upgraded on arrival to a suite with a full kitchen. It worked out so nice for the kids, the baby could sleep in the bedroom, and we were able to bring tons of groceries and cook in the room and use the fridge to save tons of money. The pool is easy to get to, right in the middle, enclosed from traffic or noise but still open to the Anaheim sky. We highly recommend The Desert Palms Hotel and Suites!

The perfect location for Disneyland, only a fifteen minute walk away. 7-11 outside as well as many restaurants with in walking distance! Free breakfast was perfect and clean! Only downfall was the noise. Checked in earlier then check in time so were placed in a room near the elevators so heard all sorts of noises including children running through the hallways at 3am? All in all great value for money and location!

Great location close walking distance to Disneyland. Good selection for breakfast, kids loved the waffles. Very handy having the 7 eleven next door which catered for all our needs. In there every day. Also Alamo car rental next door was very handy. Very clean hotel no mould in bathroom and all staff very helpful. Stayed in room with separate bunk bed room for the kids which was great and my wife and I some much needed time out at the end of the day.

This hotel more than met our expectations. Hotel was clean, had beautiful, spacious rooms, and a good breakfast was included. The staff was great too, from the breakfast area to the front desk girls. We had a problem with our transportation shuttle vouchers and the front desk staff went out of their way to contact the shuttle service company for us. Ten minute walk to Disneyland. We plan to stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a "quiet room" on an upper floor.

The size of the suite was apalling, nowhere to put luggage. Very noisy pipes and the kicker was the family staying directly above us...could hear everything! Then there was the substandard laundry on each floor - 2 washers and 2 dryers each on 3rd & 4th floor....dryers never worked properly. ...and the breakfast....ughhh!! Most revolting place ever stayed at. Have certainly recommended that our travel agent NEvER use the place again! Website makes everything look great.....false advertising!
