    Smile Anaheim Desert Inn and Suites, Anyone?

    Anyone here ever stay at the Anaheim Desert Inn and Suites? If so, I have a few questions about the inn:

    1. Is it literally across from the resorts shuttle drop off/pickup?

    2. What time should I head over to Disneyland in order to be at Main Street for the Rope Drop?

    3. How are the deluxe/ standard rooms?

    4. How is the continental breakfast?

    5. Any other helpful information about the inn?

    Thanks in advance for all responses and tips

    Re: Anaheim Desert Inn and Suites, Anyone?

    1. Is it literally across from the resorts shuttle drop off/pickup?--Yes, it's the third, I believe, motel to the right of the stop light.

    3. How are the deluxe/ standard rooms?--Large sized rooms, but desperately in need of an refurb. Some of the rooms on the higher floors had windows that opened but no screens.

    4. How is the continental breakfast?---toast and fruit, coffee, milk and juice. I don't remember there being danish or anything like that, but it's been 3 years since I stayed there.

    5. Any other helpful information about the inn?--the pool is indoor and extremely small. We had some issues with check in the second time we stayed there, I think I've read other people have also.

    I don't remember much about this hotel (I researched a TON of them for my upcoming trip in October and chose the Fairfield Inn). I have heard that all of the nearby hotels have pretty sad continental breakfasts, only coffee, danish and juice.

    I'm sure you'll get some good info soon.

    I see most of these have been answered but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in as well.

    We stay here every time we come to DL and although they aren't anything special they are extremely close to the most special place on earth in my book.

    1. Is it literally across from the resorts shuttle drop off/pickup? It is. Just a quick 5-10 minute walk away (less if you hoof it.)

    2. What time should I head over to Disneyland in order to be at Main Street for the Rope Drop? I always left early so that I could stroll leisurely down Main Street before the big masses arrived. So I'd say 20 minutes before opening may be pushing it but it might be enough if you once again hoof it. Lol

    3. How are the deluxe/ standard rooms? They are basic. Not the prettiest or newest but the bed is comfortable, sheets always seemed clean, they didn't stink.

    4. How is the continental breakfast? Basics, toast, juice, danishes, etc. . . Once again nothing fancy.

    5. Any other helpful information about the inn? If you arrive before check in they don't have anywhere to store your luggage if you want to pop over to the parks. Well actually thats not true, they have itty bitty lockers that you can put stuff in for a price. They also have a laundry mat (very small) that you can use if you plan on staying a while. And the pool and hot tub scared me so we never got in it. It was always packed and tiny and really loud! Some of the rooms had a good view of the fireworks but most of them didn't. It was nice when we got a room that had that back window because when you go with little kids it is often hard to stay until Firework time and I love fireworks!!

    Good luck deciding!! Hope that helped a little.

    Thanks for the info disneylandmom . Oh, and the Fairfield Inn is perfect and would've been our ideal hotel, but it's so pricey in mid July! Prices were crazy for all hotels in Mid July now that i think of it.

    EDIT: Thanks Disneylandorbust for the helpful insight

    Re: Anaheim Desert Inn and Suites, Anyone?

    We like the Desert Inn. The deluxe rooms are at the back of the hotel, and for us, they are perfect. They are in a garden area and it is cool and a little more private. The rooms are older, but decent. We would be staying there this trip, but got a better deal at the Carousel. The rooms were always clean, the AC worked, the pool is noisy and indoors, and none of the breakfasts at the strip motels work for us, so we figure they are worth their cost (free...) The only motels closer would be the Park Vue and the Park Place. I walk slow, and it is only about 5-10 mins from room to gate.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
