First family vacation

This was our first ever real family vacation, and our son is almost eight! We had a week at Disneyland planned and I found the Desert Palms hotel during my booking. The pictures looked nice and the reviews were favorable. I was SO HAPPY with our stay. The staff at the desk and in hotel restaurant were amazing and helpful. We had a Yuma Suite and our room faced the fireworks every night. AWESOME! The bed was a little stiff, but the rest of the room was great. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation :)

Great First Visit to Disneyland

We had a great stay at the Desert Palms. Great location. The only thing I would say is...when we went back to the hotel to obtain our luggage from a secure room...the girl did not check our ticket numbers...she seemed bothered that she had to unlock the door for us to get our 12 bags (luggage and shopping bags and camera bag)....a little disappointed by her attitude. We loved the water in the lobby, my dad kept drinking it and the kids enjoyed the lemons in it :) We called for extra towels and blankets...it was really cold, first time in years in December....the hotel was quick to respond. We enjoyed our stay and would definately stay there again!

Desert Palms

the pictures on line are misleading. the rooms are Very small. Get a room with a balcony because you will need fresh air, the hotel is very humid, like the laundry is not properly vented, and it has a bad smell. The carpet and bedding was dirty, worn and must be from the 70's. look

First Disney Visit

For our needs, it was great. We arrived in the late morning and were able to check into our room right away. Hotel is convenient to the parks and we enjoyed swimming in the afternoon. The breakfast is generous considering it is complementary. Overall, we would return.

More than expected

The hotel is older, and a bit of a walk to the park. However, I wasn't expecting such pleasant professional and friendly staff. The hotel is very clean and we observed staff cleaning the common space thoroughly. The extra touch of fruit infused ice cold water, in the lobby was refreshing. The included breakfast was sufficient and the smiling friendly staff helped out if needed. Enjoyed our stay!
