What a wonderful hotel. We were there for spring break, so it was busy.. but the staff still went out of their way to make sure your trip was wonderful!! This was our children's first trip, and a surprise trip at that. They put us at the back of the hotel, we surprised the kids with the news while watching the evening firework show.

There is 2 adults, and 3 children in our group. It was perfect!! Rooms are very clean, well kept.
Breakfast was great to go pick up each morning, it had lots of choices. And close by it was an easy walk each day, we came back to the hotel for lunch/ break each day before enjoying the evening shows.

Would definitely stay again, and would tell friends too.

Room Tip: back of hotel is quiet.. as well as you can see the sites, rides, fireworks from disneyland

We recently stayed here for a last minute mid week trip. When we arrived about 1pm and tried to check in was told no rooms were available and to come back after 3pm. They did however offer us a parking pass and got us all signed in took care of last minute ticket we needed as well as ART (bus) passes. We went and did some shopping and returned about 2pm, yes still early but after driving 6 hours really wanted to get into a room before heading to disney. The clerk remembered me by name when I walked in which was a plus to me. The clerk began calling housekeeping to find out what rooms were available and there were a few ready to go! She then told us she would upgrade (first time ever upgraded) us to another room that was ready. I was pleased with this, once parked and unloaded we headed to our room! We were amazed at the room when we walked in, it was full suite with living room, kitchen and balcony! Perfect for us!

The hotel is close to Disneyland about a 20-25 min walk from room to gate! We did use the bus several times since grandma was not up for the walk, it was close and easy to use bus also. Great option to have if you have young ones or older family members.

The breakfast was a great start to the day and much more than most hotels close to Disneyland. The parking and wi-fi are also free, which is not always the case at hotels near disney. The entire staff that we had any interaction with was always friendly and helpful! There is also a small restaurant and bar on property.

We are pass holders and have stayed at many properties near the parks, this is now probably going to be our first choice when booking our next trip!

We stayed in Anaheim purely to go to Disneyland, and this hotel was perfect. It was about a 10 or so minute walk to Disneyland but the weather was pretty good so I didn't mind. The rooms were clean and the staff we so nice!
The only downside was that we had a family with a baby in the next room who like to stay up until about 2am, and the walls must be thin because we could hear them very clearly through the wall. As long as you don't have a noisy neighbour then it's fine!
Good hotel and I'd reccomend it for Disneyland

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights as part of a convention at the Anaheim convention center. The convention center is about a 5 minute walk, and I believe it would be a reasonable walk to the Disneyland gate too. The room was on the small size, but it's adequate and clean. The hotel internet service was OK, as was the free breakfast (although the breakfast room was overrun by families with screaming kids, which shouldn't surprise anyone, so I generally ate out on the terrace, which was fine too). Service was pleasant.

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.
