first trip to palm springs

Overall it was a good stay. We stayed for two nights. The room was clean, my complaint was the stale odor of the room. i suggest bringing a room deodorizer to add a little freshness to the air. My other complaint was on the second day after swimming during the morning time, we walked to our room and were then notified that they were doing rewiring to the TV's. This interrupted my shower and the nap i was going to take before heading out to do some shopping. it was an inconvenience but i do have to say the workers were nice and polite and didn't come in to the room until i told them i was done with my shower. other than that...no other quarrels about the stay. i would stay here again.

Excellent staff & good value

Hotel is in good location not too far from downtown and pretty quiet. Hotel is older, but maintained fairly well. Staff at the hotel were great - we asked to be moved from a 1st floor room in front of hotel to a 2nd floor room in back, and they made the move for us. Also when the hair dryer broke and we informed front desk, it Gordon replaced the same day. Rooms towards the back of the hotel are more quiet as away from main road. Room was spacious and have been updated room was clean. Only downside was the bed was not that comfortable - mattress needs to be replaced. Overall this was a really good place to stay, would recommend.

Nice but needs some TLC

From ooms almost make up for the curbthe street, very "mid-century" appearing. The rooms almost make up for the "curb appeal". They advertise "luxury bedding"; however, it was nothing special (plain old cotton) and both my sheet as well as pillow case had small holes. The staff was accommodating and, due to the value, I'd make a return visit. They've been talking about opening a restaurant (off the lobby)...but "talk" is cheap and they don't seem to be doing anything to reach that goal!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

La Bella Roma in Cathedral City (corner of Ramon and Landau) serves the MOST delicious lunch specials everyday (except Sunday) for only $6.99, including entree, soup/salad and home baked rolls. You CAN'T miss this place - BEST VALUE anywhere and you can order off the lunch menu until 4pm! DON"T MISS OUT!!!

Mid-Century "Motel-ish"; Fair Value, Location OK!

I've stayed here countless times in the past and a few years back they wen through a renovation. Unfortunately, no "freebies" although they have plenty of room adjacent to the lobby to offer guests (at the very least) a "continental breakfast". No restaurant! Bathroom sink provided no hot water - shower did. There were a total of 5-burned out light bulbs in my room (2-bedside, 3-vanity area) - you would think the houseakeepers would check this during cleaning. The bed was not terribly comfortable but, keep in mind, this is a lower-cost alternative to the usual "pricey" hotels in Palm Springs. They have a "nominal" resort fee and I normally only book with NO "resort fee" properties. Overall, a fair value - just so they don't increase the room rates! The former restaurant/bar on property is history!

Smelly Room

It was an average experience with a non-smoking room that smelled like smoke. I enjoyed the gym, it as small but had everything for quick work-out.

Nice getaway weekend with the pup!

It was very pleasant. Our first time traveling with our puppy and he loved it! The rooms were nice and big. The pool area and dog park were very well kept. We will be coming back!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

We loved that we were able to walk to good restaurants. Twin Palms was great! And the coffee shop down the street.

QUICK STAY!

HAD A QUICK OVERNIGHT STAY HERE, BUT THIS IS MY IMPRESSION. THE HOTEL IS OLDER BUT UPDATED SOME. THE ROOM WAS CLEAN, LIKED THE SINK OUTSIDE THE BATHROOM AND SHOWER AREA. LOVED THE TISSUE BOX (YOU WOULD JUST HAVE TO SEE IT!) EVENING AND MORNING STAFF VERY PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH AND THE HOTEL IS CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN PALM SPRINGS. AT THE RIGHT PRICE, ITS JUST GREAT!
