We were unable to adjust the heat at night, the breakfast was good, but the sausage was not Jimmy Dean. I love Jimmy Dean.

Door didn’t go to floor. It let light and sound in. The windows had shutters instead of curtain and let in lots of light.

It was ok. Nothing extraordinary to report. The price paid was a bit over the top for what you get. But, you can walk to Disneyland and that’s what most people use it for.

Great Bang for the Buck!

Pros: Location, breakfast, space of rooms
Cons: Breakfast was ok but could be a little better; the powdered eggs were the biggest strike against but overall, it was fine.
Location: Disneyland
We made a last minute (3-weeks prior to arriving) decision to take the family to Disneyland. We were looking for a place that was reasonably priced, provided breakfast and was a convenient walk to the Parks. Desert Palms was all of the above. The room was spacious for our family of five, breakfast was convenient and the beds comfortable. For the amount of hours we were actually in the room, this hotel was a huge success.

Perfect for a big family, right next to Disneyland

We got the room with double wide bunk beds (2 kids on top, 2 on bottom). Door to kids room is solid and closes all the way. King size bed for us and plenty of space for all our suitcases. Breakfast was awesome. The place is clean and the staff are very friendly. Put the 2 youngest kids in a double jogging stroller and you're 10 minutes from the park entrance.

Too far from disney

Terrible lighting made it very hard to do make up. Tub faucet dripped all night and tv centered oddly away from tv and wall blocked entire view. Walk to disney a bit farther than led to believe and hot tub was cold. Bed was comfortable though.

Trip to Disneyland Califoria Adventures

Pros: The location, the cleanliness, the breakfast and the staff were very kind.
Cons: Having afew more tv channels to choose from and that includes Fox News. Breakfast menu to include turkey sausage or turkey bacon.
Location: Great location for Disneyland Trip. Very short easy walk for anyone old or young to the main entrance to Disney/Califoria Advertures.
We arrived and only had to wait afew minutes for our room to be ready. The lobby was comfortable and there was lemon water for guest to drink at anytime which was very refreshing. After checkout we had one hour to kill before our ride back to the airport and the hotel had to problem with us staying in the lobby which is quite beautiful and clean.

Very satisfied!

This place was ideal for our 2 days in Anaheim, It was about a 10 minute walk to Disney. Breakfast was good with coffee and water in the lobby during the day. Very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool could have been a little warmer, but we only used it one night. Our room was clean and the bunk beds were ideal for our 2 boys. If we are ever in Anaheim again, we'll use them again

Disney Family Trip

Pros: Clean rooms, nice pool, free breakfast, free parking
Cons: better elevator system so you don't have to take 2 elevators to get from the parking garage to our room on floor 2...
Location: Great location, close to Disney!
The hotel was a great walking distance for my 10 and 7 yr old during our trip to Disney. The hotel was clean and the rooms were updated. The pool was nice. The breakfast was not amazing but it was one less meal we had to pay for on our vacation. There was free coffee and water in the lobby. Free parking too. A really fun trip, would stay again!
