The room was clean and the AC worked nice. The parking lot is very small and the breakfast could be better. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

Spacious rooms, very clean and tidy. Perfect for our family Disney vacation. Disneyland is literally just across the street. They have an observation deck to watch the fireworks which was awesome.

You can’t beat the location. It’s right across the street from the South Harbor entrance to Disneyland. It’s definitely an older place and could use some updating, but it’s clean and reasonably priced. We usually stay here because of the their “Parlor Suite” options which have a smaller room connected to the main room which has a closing door. This is a WONDERFUL option when you have little ones that are used to their own space and you don’t have to worry about waking them.

Made a reservation for adjoining rooms and didn't get it. This is not a luxury hotel, but the rooms are pretty decent in size. It's all about the location though. Across the street from the walking entrance to the park which is awesome. They also have roof access with some patio furniture so you can watch the fireworks go off.

Room was spacious and comfortable. Extra electrical outlets were very nice. Even had a light-up light switch as you enter the room. Great details. Employees were polite and helpful.

Check in was easy. Location is great! It’s a very easy walk to Disneyland and many nearby restaurants. Walking from the lobby to the crosswalk to Disneyland is less than a minute. Breakfast was set up to easily keep line moving. We never had a long wait over the 4 days we were there. There was a selection of fresh fruit, toast, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, coffee and orange juice. The room was clean and the daily housekeeping good. There is also a fireworks viewing area on the roof. Parking was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. We would definitely stay here again!

Very reasonably priced hotel directly across the street from Disneyland. So glad i discovered it. We stay here every trip now. Not a 5 star hotel but a clean place to sleep. Refrigerator, microwave and free continental breakfast. What more do you need?

We have stayed here twice now. This hotel is very nice having suites and family suites which are great for our family of 4. The kids have their own room with their own TV giving us more space than a hotel room. The staff is friendly and I like that they will check you in hours before your room is ready, so you know there won't be any problems when you come back from Disneyland to get your room keys. The hotel is directly across the street from the Disneyland entrance. The walk across the street and into the park is shorter and less of a headache than parking in the Disney parking lot and waiting for trams to drive you to the entrance. The free breakfast is self serve. Pastries, toast your own bread, cereal, coffee, juice, etc. Fairly simple but not bad and enough to fill you up before going to the park. This hotel is our favorite as we cannot afford to stay in the park. We will be coming back here.

great location. great place. I didn't give it a 4 because the pull out mattress was horrible along with the under the sink.. the pipes where not fitted correctly so much 6 month old hit it and water leaked out. yet for the price it was great . my family paid under 170 for a family of 6! I do also wish the had a better pool. it's a inside pool... in California.... really.... that needs to change

Very family friendly. Breakfast could be better. Parking is by valet when the lot is full, they are very quick to get your car. Pool was cold and a little smaller than we expected. Incredibly convenient for going to Disneyland. We would stay there again.

The room accommodations are average for hotels that are in close proximity to the parks. The continental breakfast delivers as advertised. For those parents out there, keep in mind that there was a $10 per night charge for a crib. We reserved a two bedroom suite that fits our needs; however, these rooms do not block outside and neighbor noise at all. We are right above the hotel laundry room, and you can hear a loud humming at all hours day and night. We are located on the third floor and you can hear every footstep the upstairs occupants take. Even with a sound machine, this room did not make for a restful environment, and for that reason I am only rating this motel 3 stars.

Second time visiting here. The hotel to visit for large families at Disneyland. Located right across the street from Disneyland's main entrance. A 5 minute walk takes you to the front gates. Has a free continental breakfast in the morning, which saves you a lot. If you need more protein than boiled eggs, there are several neighboring restraunts and one Mcdonalds. For our large family, I prefer reserving the 10 person suite which has 1 1/2 bathrooms. The 8 person suite is actually two rooms with a connecting door and does not have a comfortable flow between the two rooms. It does however have two full baths.

No frills budget option for your next visit to Anaheim. The amenities are extremely basic and the rooms are a tad outdated. My bed was somewhat firm, which is okay because that’s how I like my mattress but I think lots of people will probably be uncomfortable with how firm it is.

I’ve stayed here a few times and it has always been an enjoyable experience. The property itself is well maintained and I’ve never had a complaint about my room. I stayed here for work and a vast majority of the guests are Disney park goers so it is a more family oriented crowd with lots of kids, but as long as that doesn’t bother you this is a nice option to stay at.

This is really a nice hotel option for a family Disney Vacation. Even though we didn’t stay here my husband and I did some recon while driving around to check out some of the other hotels in preparation of our next Disney family vacation. The rooms were all very clean and modern and I know that the kids will love the pool that’s tucked away behind the building and feels very private.   The front desk attendant was very friendly and was more than willing to answer any questions we had about the property. Assuming we can get a good deal on it we will likely be staying here next year when we visit again!

This is a basic hotel that will meet the needs of your family’s visit to Anaheim. Don’t expect many bells and whistles in the rooms. Just basic amenities but the rooms are clean. They do have an indoor pool and hot tub as well which is great for the kids!

Excellent location, so easy to walk across the street to Disneyland! Got a suite, two queen beds each in an adjoined room. Nothing fancy, but we just needed a place to sleep since we were out all day and night. A basic hotel but everything works and is clean. Lots of outside noise but to be expected, although could not hear the fantasmic music or fireworks. Breakfast was pretty meager but it feeds you, three cereals, oatmeal, small danish and mini muffin selection, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, orange and apple juice, milk and toast. We were on the second floor over the parking so did not have anyone below us but didn't hear any one beside or above us, except for people walking by. The bathrooms are loud though. Beds are very firm, if that's what you like. Parking is tight but they valet for free but you do need to pay for parking. They let us park there before we were able to check in (3 PM) which is nice. I'd definitely stay again just for the convenience factor.

Stayed here for the first time this past weekend and It was very clean and perfect location for our trip to Disneyland. Located Directly across from the entrance to both parks. The beds were comfortable and the suite with 4 queen beds was perfect for my large family. Would definitely stay here in the future.

The location is great. The rooms are clean. My family enjoyed the breakfast. We were able to store our luggage for a few hours after check out and visit downtown Disney while we waited for our ride. The only downside was the WiFi was very spotty. Sometimes you could get on for a couple of minutes, then it would be gone again.

Rates and location are great! Rooms are clean. Valet did a good job. Our a/c didn't work as well as it should, but technically functioned (not really a problem since its January). Would definitely stay here again

The place is clean, the bedding is pretty nice, the workers are very nice. There was very little water pressure and it was lukewarm at best in the shower. Pool is closed and we weren't informed so that was a bummer. Keep in mind you'll be charged an extra $11 per night if you have a vehicle however you can park yourself and if there's no self parking the valet parking will do it for free. Breakfast includes Bagels, danishes, cereal, eggs, fruit including apples and oranges, oatmeal, and drinks like apple juice and orange juice.

Excellent location right across from the main Disneyland entrance. Nice swimming pool and hot tub. Swimming pool a little cold for December. Decent continental breakfast. Maid service great. Clean room and plenty of air conditioning. Also super close to restaurants nearby, Dennys, IHOP and others.

Hotel location was awesome. Rooms were decent for the price paid - dated, but certainly great for the $$ we paid and they were clean, functional and we found the beds comfortable. Quiet at night and we slept great. Only reason we didn't give a five star review was that there was mixed service at front desk. One person would be great, helpful and friendly - next person would be surly, annoyed and definitely not helpful. So, luck of the draw on front desk. Maintenance and maids were very nice. Had lack of hot water one day and fixed immediately. We had a suite, so just used the 2nd bathroom that day. Those things happen and they handled it perfectly.

It is very close to Disneyland. Definitely good for walking distance. The breakfast is simple, but I hop and Dennys are next to the hotel. Also walking distance to McDonald's and panera. Furniture is a run down but otherwise clean. The noise from other floors is audible so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. And last but not least the comforter could be a little thicker. So if you are looking for a basic hotel and going to Disneyland I would recommend it.

Like other reviews, this place is a little dated but for the price and cleanliness it can't be beat. Staff was friendly. Parking is little tight. Stayed for 7 days and had a great time.

I cannot give this hotel 5 stars, because it is a little rundown. That being said, it is very clean, which I appreciate. The location is more convenient than even the Disneyland hotel itself. The pool is indoor, which is strange for socal, but all in all worth the price, and much cleaner than legacy or the candy cane inn.

Our room is very nice and clean and the staff is friendly! Valet parking is available since the normal parking is full. They brought our car up very fast, within about 5 minutes! The best part is we are right across the street from DISNEYLAND so we can just walk!

The proximity to Disneyland is the best part of this place. The continental breakfast was decent and the access to a hot tub was great. If you have to use the roll out couch bed i wouldn't recommend it as the springs are very hard.

great location, great deal, perfect place to sleep, close to restaurants and across the street from Disneyland.. for the rate you can not go wrong.. we even got free breakfast included, and they gave us coupons for restaurants. Room had two tv's, one in a small living room. Furniture is a little dated but still in good condition.

This is our family's go-to hotel when it comes to visiting Southern California. We never enjoyed any other hotel besides this one right here. It is right across from Disneyland, so you could literally walk. There is an iHop and a Denny's right nearby. The staff were very welcoming and did everything they could to ensure our week there would be pleasant. Parking wasn't much of a problem as it was last year. The rooms were clean when we arrived and we didn't have any problems with the maids (actually, they had outdone themselves. Room was spotless) We will totally stay here for our next trip.

It's a very nice room and hotel. The people are nice and the room are spacious and comfortable. With accesses to the roof (where the Disney fireworks can be seen) and pool and spa, it is a very relaxing and family friendly environment.

So, the location is awesome for spending a week at Disneyland and California Adventure. It's right at the parks' entrance. The service was also awesome as any need was quickly addressed. So those are the highlights... The reason for 3 stars is that the accommodations are in desperate need for updating. The place is very run down. Our A/C unit's fan didn't work and they had to bring us a large fan to push the cool air into the room. The shower head had a bad leak and soaked the bathroom floor the first night so they had to replace it. The towels, carpets, furniture and bedding was in horrible condition and need to be replaced. All in all, for the location and great service along with the price, I'd say, nobody would be upset with their stay here but like me, a bit dissapointed over the accommodations but VERY PLEASED over the location and service.

Incredible location for access to Disneyland. Very reasonably priced. Clean enough. It is obvious that furniture and the like have seen better days. However, seeing as one is there only to put one's head down and shower, who cares. Staff nice and responsive as well. Luxury hotel it is not but I do not think you can beat the value and location.

Great location, dated interiors, reasonable rates considering it is across the street from the Disneyland entrance. Busy place, motel style so you walk outdoors to your room. This place is popular with families. 4 stars just because it needs renovating / updating and the service isn't bad but the front desk did seem understaffed when we checked in. Despite being overworked they were very polite and helpful. Not dinging it much because at the price point this is at you should not be expecting the latest and greatest.

Very cosy rooms, but the coffee is awful. Great air-conditioning. Quiet at night. All the facilities you need, for example, laundry, swimming pool, breakfast room,vending machines). Less than 3 minutes walk to Disneyland Resort. Near an i-hop and a Denny's (you get 10% off a Denny's breakfast). We enjoyed our stay at Anaheim Desert Inn very much.

The hotel is located about less than a 5 minute walk to Disneyland. The hotel was very accommodating. We got there late but they still gave us a room. The room was nice, a little hot even with the AC on. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very basic and mediocre.

Stayed here from 1/21/17-1/28/17. The rooms are basic but clean. The staff was helpful when needed. The continental breakfast is OK. You can get enough to eat for breakfast but after a week the lack of options became a bit of a problem. Still it was free. The area felt safe. The best part is it is located right across the street from Disneyland and is closer to the front gate than the Disneyland Hotel.

Very close to Disneyland entrance! We've booked here at least 5 times over the years. Decent rooms, decent cold breakfast, but tight parking. Friendly staff. Indoor pool but have never really wanted to use it.

The hotel is very conveniently located across from Disneyland. The rooms are good for the price. The continental breakfast is very basic but neat and need for a quick meal. A lot of kids. Small pool and Whirlpool to relax later in the evening a lot of restaurants within walking distance. Would stay there again if I return to Disneyland.

We stayed at this hotel specifically for its location. It is a very short walk to the security checkpoint (maybe 8 minutes with a small child walking). The hotels were clean, and staff was very nice. Parking was tight, especially with a plumbing truck parked in the middle of the lot every day we were there. The breakfast was even less than I had expected based on their description of it; there was no yogurt or liquid creamer for coffee. There was only bread and occasionally bagels, hard-boiled eggs, and cereal. The pool area also did not have towels. Be sure to bring one from your room! I would stay here again.

Great access to the Disneyland parks. Rooms are perfect for just spending time in the room to sleep. Otherwise nothing spectacular. Free continental breakfast could be better. Just hard boiled eggs, pastries, cereal and breads.

We have stayed here before and it was fine but this time it wasn't so great. After a long day at Disneyland my wife was in bed relaxing and she screamed, she saw a cocroach going from one end to the room to the other under ending under our kids bed. She was not able to sleep after that. Called the front desk and they offered to give us another room but the kids were already asleep and it would have been a hassle switching rooms at midnight. Needless to say I am disappointed. We were told by the front counter person to talk to management in the morning but my wife didn't want to take time from being at Disneyland to discuss with management the cocroach situation. We will see what they tell us when we check out tomorrow morning.

Rooms were quite small. We had 2 queen beds in ours and there was literally a walkway to the bathroom. We didn't spend much time in the room though so not a big deal. The bathroom was a decent size but the water pressure in the sink and shower was awful. The room came with a fridge and microwave, which was nice. Nice flatscreen tv. Room was super clean. This is literally right across the street from Disneyland so two thumbs up for location. The continental breakfast was horrible. Danish, cold cereal and boiled eggs. We went next door to Denny's every morning. The staff was very courteous, no issues there. We arrived before check in time and they still let us park our car. You do pay $9 for parking per day, which I think is ridiculous, but it's cheaper than parking at Disneyland. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would definitely stay here again.

We didn't spend much time in our hotel room. It was a good stay and great location for Disney. We traveled from Oregon and got there in the morning before our room was ready. The guy at the front desk was nice and let us park our car even though the room wasn't ready. Check in went smooth. The rooms were a little outdated, but the beds were comfy. I did however felt like they were sticky and sweaty all the time even though the AC was on. This could have been just me though since I am not use to the weather in CA. Housekeeping did great coming in everyday to clean the room. We didn't try the pool since we hardly spent time in the hotel. The only thing I didn't like was the breakfast. My husband was really disappointed about this. Not much to choose from so we ended up spending money on breakfast somewhere else. The guys from valet parking were great. Over all a good experience, but hotel could improve you and make a better reputation you know since they are a good neighbor hotel for Disney. Great job guys!

The rooms were very adequate for a budget hotel near Disneyland. The valley parking staff was very accommodating to our large group with multiple cars. The only thing preventing this from being a 5 star experience was the very very poor continental breakfast. They phoned it in on this one and made no efforts above what is considered the bare minimum. Boiled eggs, cereal, and danish pastries are all you should expect. Overall good experience but should plan on breakfast elsewhere

This is the best hotel and staff you can get here and disneyland is right across. Rooms is very clean. Breakfast is not the best but be happy desert inn supplies it for free, at lease you got food to start the day, its better than driving some where or go next door and spend more money on breakfast. Save your money for the turkey leg in disneyland you can feed 2-4 bodies with it. Lol need to stop thinking like the american way, we have to eat eggs, oatmeal, bacon, pork links and hash brown etc. Proud to be an american, but with the economy like this its all about survival and keep our kids happy and enjoy the vacation.

I booked here for my vacation from Arizona to Disneyland. First let's say the good thing about it is that it really is directly across the street from Disneyland so no shuttles! When I arrived at 3:30 (check in is at 3) my room was not ready. Check out time is 11 am so I don't know what happened. They had to give me a whole new room. Now, you would think for the price of this hotel and it's location that they would serve a HOT continental breakfast. The only thing served here is danish, toast, hard boiled eggs, and cereal. Um...wtf $309 a night people. Valet....don't get me started. No parking what-so-ever. Now valet is free so you don't have to tip or pay them; but when they move your vehicle seven times over 3 days you gotta ask, "excuse me, is gas fuc## free?" When the gas pump is $4.79 you don't move my vehicle. They used a whole quarter tank of my gas moving it as many times as they did. The pool looked unsanitary as well. The only thing wrong in my room, which was a suite for 10 people, was the carpet. OMG wear socks. The carpet is never cleaned and there are stains everywhere of God only knows what. The pillows are super hard too. You can punch them and break your wrist lol. So bring your own. Not worth the $1500 spent.
