"Lovely hotel"
September, 2018
We got the suite 2 bedroom 2 bath. It was really big and just a overall great experience with the staff. Breakfast was over the top . It was way different compared to other breakfast hotels. The diner inside was had flavor and the guy in there was very informative. They also give discounts on Disneyland ticket..whaaaatttt!!! They have a big pool . Everything there was great. I recommend for people to stay here. Only thing that kind sucked was that they only gave 2 parking stalls for it. I came with a family of 3 for 2 bedroom 2 bath with 4 queen beds and only 2. So they told us about a parking down the street for 24$ a day. I was hoping to get another parking stall since i paid so much for the room, but overall great hotel great food and great stay.

This hotel does so many things very well. We arrived @ 9.30am from direct flight from Sydney. We were suppose to arrive @ 12.30pm but flight scheduled early. Alex at reception was absolutely awesome. We were able to drop off our bags and room was available by 1.30pm. Our room was located on the 4th floor (room 461) and overlooked cars land (well the back of it) and we were able to watch the fire works each night. The room was all we needed. Had a great sized fridge, microwave, 2 dble beds, a sunken lounge and small table and chairs. This was great for us parents and 2 teenage daughters. There have been a number of comments around breakfast. As long as your expectations aren't too high its fine. Ok it doesn't vary a great deal and for us Aussies the scones (or biscuits) with a cheese sauce is a little weird but the kids enjoyed the waffles and there is enough to get your through to lunch. Is it 5 star? no far from it but its filling and clean. Location- As far as Disney is concerned its perfect. Short flat walk. There are some cheap eats across the road and 711, A Mart and a great pharmacy opposite which sells alcohol, food, clothing and the odd pharmaceutical need lol. The negative is there are a number of homeless next door and some times they were a little aggressive but mostly weren't an issue. The restaurant onsite is open to 10.00pm most nights and reasonably priced, great service and good food. Yes the pool isn't large but its adequate and you are there for Disneyland. Well done Desert Palms for providing our family everything needed for a fantastic Disney holiday. Would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting great accommodation 8 min walk from Disney. Matt

Great spot, I have bad joints and this was close enough for us to walk to Disney everyday. Rooms well appointed and CLEAN, Breakfast was fine - something to start the day but not get excited about. The pool is small, but then its more a place for the kids after a long day. Staff were all friendly and helpful - except when we arrived 1 1/2 hours early, our welcome wasn't the best, the man on reception informed us it cost $35 +tax to check in early...we totally understood that if the room wasn't ready we couldn't get in, and I understand a late check out - rooms need to be ready for the arriving just seemed a bad first impression to charge for a room that was sitting ready, by the time the reception talked to us, stored our bags and then at 3pm returned our bags, and checked us in ( the lady that checked us in at 3pm was very welcoming) it tool the staff 2 times as long and gave us a disappointing welcome and first impression.
