Desert Palms Hotel Review - Rooms:
There are few Anaheim area hotels that have as much variety when it comes to room types as the Desert Palms Hotel & Suites. While each room type's layout and bedding configuration is quite different from the next, all of the guestrooms share some amenities. No matter which room type you select at the Desert Palms, your room with come with all of the basic amenities you'd expect, plus a microwave and refrigerator. Those are two musts in my book for traveling with kids. The rooms are also clean and comfortable with a crisp, updated look. Here is what you can expect in each of the room types:
Deluxe Standard - This rooms type is what you envision when you book a traditional hotel room with two queen beds.
One Bedroom Suite with Bunk Bed - This suite is perfect for families with up to four kids and two adults. The room features a bedroom with one king bed and another separate sleeping area that has a double bunk bed. The double bunk bed sleeps up to four kids.

Desert Palms Hotel Review - Dining:
Another huge perk of staying at the Desert Palms Hotel & Suites is the free breakfast served daily. They serve your standard continental items as well as hot items. Scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, country potatoes and so much more.
Then, at night, the Oasis Kitchen & Bar turns into a full service restaurant that serves family favorites like burgers, salads and pastas.
