We stayed at the Desert Palms Early Feb 2013. It's an easy 8 min walk to Disneyland and California Adventure. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The free breakfast was good, buffet style. 7/11 is next door, we would stop each morning and load up on snacks and drinks for the day, just don't buy a drink in glass as they don't allow glass in the parks. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again. I booked our room direct with the hotel and it was very easy.
