Last minute find

Great space. Would definitely stay again. I was in town and needed a last minute room and was pleased with the hotel I found. Would stay again. Was a little odd of what they did with the old restaurant they had but overall great place and great pool.

A great overnight stay

We only stayed here one night but we were impressed by the great location, friendly helpful staff and great value for money. The rooms are spacious with nice decor & ours had pool views. The staff said the hotel had recently been sold to a new owner & had said they may look into reinstating a poolside bar and dining facilities. If these plans go ahead it will make this place an outstanding place to stay.

Palm Springs w/ Ali

Was kind of hoping for an authentic, modern, Palm Springs tikki experience, but it was a little dumpy - like a motel and a lot of parking lot.

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.

get away weekend

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying here for a quick get away weekend. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We had a blast at the pool and enjoyed our room. Close to The Buzz, a free shuttle to downtown and back. Great value for the money. Only downside was that each day we had to go to the office to have our room keys reconfigured.

Family Trip

We have stayed at this hotel for a few years now and we keep coming back. The pool is the main attraction, its nice and quiet and perfect for the family. I wish they would give us a discount now and then since we stay with them every time we head out to Palm Springs. Its a few miles to downtown Palm Springs and i would definitely recommend it to people with families. The Staff is friendly but the ice machine being down was a bummer especially in 120 degree weather.
