The Desert Palms Hotel and Suites is a mellow Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel, designed to accommodate families and business travelers in Anaheim. Bunk beds in the signature kids' suites add an element of fun for children, while businesspeople can book a stay in the deluxe rooms. These come with a desk, free Wi-Fi, and use of the on-site business center. Fill up on eggs, sausages, fresh fruit, cereals, waffles and coffee at the complimentary breakfast buffet in the Palms Room, before heading to the nearby theme parks, or dipping your toes in the heated outdoor pool.

Disneyland

Great room for 2 adults and 4 kids. Stayed in the Borrego Suite. One night had partiers next door, but hotel staff took care of it promptly. Breakfast was awful, but free. would recommend for families that want a short walk to the entrance of the park.

Great Price, Great Room and close...

Everything was great untill we got back to the room (444). The exhaust fan (we found out that's what it was) for the resturant was on and made a lot of noise; until we called the desk and they immediately sent a maintenance person up to see what it was. When he figured out what it was, he had them turn it off; then everything was quiet enought to sleep...

2010 Disney Vacation

The rooms were average but clean. The location was great, close to convience stores and shopping and about 10 minute walk to Disney. Suprisingly enough, as busy as it was during spring break, the restruants outside of Disney were really not that busy and the food was good.

Eat outside of Disney if you can (unless just snacking), a sit down resturant there can have up to 2.5 hour wait time.
