"Great hotel within walking distance from Disneyland"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 17, 2018 NEW
The hotel is at the southeast corner of the block where Disneyland is, so no need to cross the big streets, you can just along the street until the main entrance. If you have younger children, maybe you can walk to Disneyland and come back by Uber. I made last minute reservation for the hotel, so didn't expect much, but the hotel had small but good enough swimming pool, breakfast good enough as well. I was able to park my car, go to Disneyland and check in later in the evening. I emailed the hotel about this, and they replied it is possible based on availability, of course, but the parking lot was big enough for the hotel that size. Overall satisfactory stay.

"Big, modern rooms, perfect location for Disney"

We loved staying at the Desert Palms on our most recent trip to Disneyland. The hotel is right on the Disney block and just an easy 10 minute walk to the front gate. The lobby and rooms are all recently remodeled and very clean and spacious. The pool is a bit small and can be crowded but it's heated year-round. Love the convenience of the free hot breakfast (the menu changes daily) served in a sunny penthouse dining room with a nice patio overlooking the back of Carsland. Also we appreciated the super thick glass to block out the traffic noise on Katella ave--we slept like babies. Overall the best stay in Anaheim for families.

"Best value within walking distance"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 14, 2018 NEW
Just got back from Disneyland and the Hotel we stayed at was a perfect choice. Flew down for one night celebrating a birthday but would arrive before and after checkout and would have a rental car. They let us park in thier lot and held our bags. Called numerous other hotels who couldn't accomodate, or would charge. Desert Palms gave of a Parking Pass early and held our bags. Check in took seconds, bag check perhaps 1 minute, easy to find parking. We have stayed at 5 other hotels on this side of the parks and this was the best value. 4 of the others were more expensive, (the one that wasn't was sketchy ) and none of them had rooms as nice or new. This also had a better breakfast and was a really easy walk without crossing streets. On a busy street, but we never heard it. Staff was perfect. Fast, polite, helpful and plenty around when needed, especially at the breakfast and desk. Best bargain within walking distance of park if you need to park and would like breakfast.

This hotel was very nice and the staff was very helpful and accommodating to our large group of 24 people. The pool was very fun. The breakfast was delicious with many choices that changed daily. We were about a 10 min walk to disney which felt a little far at night walking home but was still a nice location

"Good rates during holiday season"

Desert Palms is located about a 1/2 mile from Disneyland. You can see the roller coaster from California Adventure from the parking lot. Good walking distance or use the ART Bus which has stop right in front of the hotel (beware of the homeless lurking around the adjacent 7-11 and bus stop). Hotel and room were clean and nice, however you can hear activity from the floor above (a lot of kids). There is a refrigerator, microwave, and safe in room. The bathroom is set off the room area which is nice when you have multiple people trying to dress while the bathroom is occupied. Underground parking. Offered standard breakfast fare of eggs, potatoes, fruit, muffins, cereal and make your own waffles. Nothing special, but a great way to start your morning activities. Great small restaurant/cafe located in hotel. The food was actually pretty good and prices were fair. Looks like a two-man team, but service was great.
