Clean, spacious, breakfast was great. Close to Disneyland, I very much recommend this hotel.

Easy check in , close and easy walk to the parks .

Friendly staff. Enjoyed the pool and spa. Breakfast was a nice bonus.

We love the Desert Palms for its comfort, location, and nicely-appointed rooms. However, PLEASE BEWARE: the pool deck between the pool entry and the newer spa concrete has not been properly maintained and is dangerously slippery when wet... even when walking slowly. We notified the hotel front desk staff of this hazard during our stay in June 2021 and were disappointed to see it had not been addressed on our recent visit (April 2022). The day we were at the pool, my son slipped and hit his head despite the fact that I put towels on the ground (apparently, I missed a spot). I was informed by another mother that, earlier in the day, her son had slipped and hit the back of his head, she slipped and almost fell, and a father of another family slipped and bloodied his knee. So unless you want to risk your stay being ruined by the negligence of the management, throw down at least four towels and make a walkway for all. I notified the front desk staff and emailed the manager. Although they sent a thoughtful gift basket to the room, I was disappointed that they didn't at least take my suggestion of posting a "Slippery When Wet" sign in the area. I will update this review if I receive confirmation that the situation has been addressed.

Love the cleanliness and location. Thin walls are thin- traffic noise woke us regularly.

Area close to Disneyland, great customer service, good breakfast. The only bad things is parking is 22 dollars

The rooms were spotless and loved the convenience of a 10minute walk from Disneyland.

Loved the front staff, extremely helful,friendly.The location was great.The suite was large,very clean.Great breakfast buffet. It was quite noisy all hours,but it is expected as it is a hotel near Disneyland.

Seemed clean and liked the room

The hotel property and room was great. Conveniently located close to Disneyland. However, I did not care for the staff at the front desk. I asked if they could call me if there was a room available prior to the 3pm check in. I was told no. While I was checking-in the system went down. So I had to fill out paperwork that took them forever to locate and highlight while they were preoccupied by looking at their apple watches. While other guests around me were checking-in without any issue.

This property is situated in one of the best locations, 10 minutes walking distance to Disneyland and across the street from CVS and Walgreens in case you need to pick up something. A lot of nice restaurants are around the area too! Staff was nice and there was a daily free breakfast buffet with good selection. Room was clean and spacious. Our family really enjoyed our stay there. We will plan to be back.

It was clean and everyone was professional. However, staying for multiple nights without cleaning service was a bit rough.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

Walking distance to Disneyland. Breakfast was a plus. Television difficult to use, a little outdated.

This property is a easy walk to Disneyland and close to shopping and dining. The property is very clean, well maintained and well staffed. Complimentary breakfast was plentiful with a nice selection to choose from, this is especially nice to offer for the family heading to the park. My initial room lacked a view and when stating this in passing at the Front Desk, I was promptly moved (upgraded due to availability) to a room with a view and no mention of an upcharge (thank you!). This is a family affordable hotel (especially for how close it is to the park) that does not skimp in pleasing thier guests. Thumbs Up!

Close to Disney and restaurants and the room was okay, except we had a view of a concrete wall out our only window. For the price paid I expected a nicer atmosphere, but it was okay. If I would have been spending more time in the hotel I would not have been happy- poor view in room, tiny indoor pool, and restaurant with outside seating is closed.
