We recently had a good stay at Desert Palms. In fact, we didn't complain once. Our room was nice. It was a suite where the kids room had a wall and bunk beds (TV on kids wall). It was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was about what we expected. It wasn't great, however, it wasn't bad either. I guess if I had one compliant it would be that the cafeteria was often jam packed in the mornings. They opened a room down the hall to accommodate everyone, which was nice.
We took our 8 and 5 year old and brought no stroller. We didn't think we'd need it. This made for some long walks back to the hotel carrying tired kids. It's about .5 miles to the entrance of the parks, and then you're walking all over all day long. We had to carry the 5 year old a lot. In hindsight we should have rented a stroller.
Anyways, there's a 7-11 next door to the hotel and a Subway across the street. There's a Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang's, and California Pizza (and a few others) maybe .5 miles in a different direction from the parks. We drove to those restaurants during our mid day break. You can get your parking validated when you eat.
We'll easily stay at Desert Palms in the future. The staff were very hospitable.
This was our favorite Disney area hotel in the three trips we've made in the last 5 years. We also stayed at the Staybridge and Fairfield Inn.
