On arrival to Desert Palms we were made to feel very welcome and kindly upgraded to a Kuha Kids Suite at no extra cost. It was great to have an 8-10 minute walk to both Disney parks which meant we could get there for opening times. The room was great, the pool a godsend for the kids after a day at the parks and we were close to many if the local restaurants and Downtown Disney. Easy to park our hire car also. The only negative would be the breakfast, which although plentiful was a little bland or 'manufactured' but given what we were paying for the room, a nice bonus.
This is a good hotel at great value.

My husband, four growing children and I stayed here for a week to do the Disneyland thing. Desert palms is very comfortable for a family our size. We had two rooms with two queen beds each and most importantly two showers/toilets. This accommodation is located 10 minutes easy walk to Disneyland. We used to walk home from Disneyland to enjoy a lovely relaxing spa or swim in the pool. I felt that the hotel was so big and had such a high turnover of customers that there wasnt a lot of personalisation (we were just the customers in room 315!) - but that was fine. Coin laundry on our floor was convenient. The maid service starts too early. A couple of times we returned from breakfast and the maid was already fixing our room. Breakfast, what can I say......you get what you pay for. Coming from Australia my kids were really looking forward to the American breakfast experience. After just one experience they were crushed. Orange juice (as sweet as cordial), toaster (doesnt work properly), waffles (no taste), eggs/sausages (dont even go there) , and I cant even comment on the fruit loops and chocolate doughnuts. In summary, stay here for the comfortable beds, hot showers and convenience of Disneyland NOT the breakfast.

Room Tip: Dont get a room on Level 5 - the breakfast room.

We recently undertook our fourth visit to the Desert Palms Hotel and Suites. We are a family of two adults and two children (5 and 8 years) and find the Desert Palms a nice 10-12 minute walk from Disneyland Resort (although people with older children or teenages could cover the distance quicker).
We stayed in a Borrego Suite which provided that additional space for the kids to play in as well as a seperate bed for each child. The free breakfast provided lots of hot and cold options (great for fussy children) and the free wifi allowed us to keep in touch with home.
Didn't get to play in the pool on this visit but we have enjoyed it in the past. During our last visit plenty of other guests appeared to be having heaps of fun.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and the gift shop on the ground floor has items at very reasonable prices. Having a 'Seven Eleven' store next door was very handy as well. Across the road are a number of eateries and the Cheesecake Factory is just a 10 minute walk away.

Room Tip: The Borrego Suite provides families with just that extra bit of space (for all those Disney souvenirs).

We stayed in a Sahara Suite, which has a fully equipped kitchen. The first night we stayed in a room that faced onto the road. It was very noisy, so we asked to be moved the next morning. Staff were very accommodating and our new room faced inside into the pool area. No noise except the usual of people going to and from their rooms, but as mostly families stay here there was no late night noise. Walking distance to Disneyland and several restaurants including Bubba Gump's, IHOP, Denny's & other fast food outlets. Right next door is 7eleven & Alamo Car Hire. Breakfast was fairly average, except the waffle making machine which the kids (15 & 12yrs) loved. They did have scrambled eggs and some American breakfast favourite called "biscuits and gravy" which we stayed away from. Toast, donuts, pastries & cereals, juice & coffee. Can't complain as it was included with our accommodation booking. Good value family hotel.

Room Tip: Request an inwards (pool) facing room, not on the road.

We all enjoyed our stay, the front desk staff was very friendly. It is a close walk to Disney & the convention center. We will stay again next year, the kids loved the pool area & it was great to have a restaurant/bar area in the hotel though I think it should stay open later in the evening. The breakfast was great for the kids but I think it should be open later as well. Overall a great experience!!

Room Tip: Close walk to Disney & to the convention center!
