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.

Great place to stay if you are headed to Disneyland!

The Desert Palms Hotel & Suites is a great hotel! Very upscale lobby/check in area, nice pool & spa adjacent to the lobby. Convenient for Disneyland stays, as there is a shuttle that picks up from in front of the hotel, and its the first drop off spot from disneyland! The hotel staff is very helpful, I spent almost 20 minutes on the phone with a front desk employee to ask questions about where the locals go for a good dinner, and they were GREAT about it! The room was a great value for the money, with a safe available in the closet (which is also hidden by a full length mirror), there is an in-room refridgerator.. and best of all, it was a comfortable, quiet and friendly hotel. I would definately recommend this hotel to a friend, and I plan on staying there for my next disneyland trip!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are going to Disneyland, you can save money by leaving your car at the hotel (even after you check out of the hotel, you can leave your car there till midnight!), buy the $3 shuttle ticket from the front desk, and save from having to pay the expensive parking at Disneyland!

Great Value and Great Location

This hotel was within walking distance to the Marriott our group's activities were held at. It was a fraction of the price and had larger rooms, full kitchen comfortable beds and quiet room. Free breakfast had a lot of variety and was very adequate. Parking and internet were free. Our room was upgraded for free. Hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. We were walking distance to Disney and many great restaurants. Highly recommend.

Awesome Location!

Got a great deal on our room, King size suite. Loved the private living room, 2 tvs, ac, bedding... etc etc. Room was very clean, housekeeping was very consistent. Free parking. Decent sized outdoor pool. Didn't eat in the hotel's cafe as we were so close to so many great places to graba bite at. Did get sick of the breakfast after 10 days, but since it's included, can't complain too much about free donuts and juice etc etc. A quick walk to Disney, malls, convention center, near major 1-5 freeways, one turn to San Diego, one turn to LA...

Family Disney Trip

Rooms were very clean, breakfast buffet was great and Disneyland Parks were only a 10-15 minute walk. Garden Walk shopping complex is right across the street. Everyone had a great time!!!

It's All Here

I couldn't find any other hotel in the Disneyland area that offered FREE parking, FREE HOT breakfast, and FREE WiFi. Yes, even though it's on the back side of Paradise Pier of California Adventures, it's about a mile to get out the gate and to the hotel (a long walk at the end of the day but do-able), but the hotel is clean, offered me an upgrade upon check in, and had an extensive breakfast with eggs, potatoes, sausage, make-your-own waffles, cereal, rolls, donuts, yogurt...etc There were many families here, but our room was at the end of the hall so it was fairly quiet. My mark of 5 stars includes duvet covers (which they did not have) but other than that many people seemed to be enjoying other amenities such as the pool and spa (not large but it was popular). Our room did have a mini-fridge and microwave. The soap/towels were a low point...bring your own sundry items or visit Target down the road. The 7-Eleven next door is a great, clean, brightly lit place to get water and items before going to the park. Affordable, clean, nice place to stay for our girls trip. Looked good for families too.

Buy water at the 7-Eleven. 99 cents vs. $3+ in the park.

Great Place

The rooms were great, they let us check in early, even got an upgrade to a suite, the rooms were clean and really well designed, the beds were so comfortable and I am very picky when it comes to my sleep. Would stay again in a minute. Also the 7-11 right across the street is great.

Great Location!

This hotel is a block from Disneyland. They serve a free hot breakfast which saves you a ton of money in the Disneyland Resort area. Super friendly staff and clean rooms :)

Marris Itallian Restaurant is less than 2 miles from the hotal and delivers to the hotel if you want to stay in. Really good food and way cheaper than everything next to Disneyland.
