Our Palm Springs hotel is close to golf courses and tennis courts, one block from the Botanical Garden, one mile from Downtown Palm Springs and 20 miles from the great outlet stores of Cabazon. In the morning, enjoy your complimentary continental breakfast. Relax in our heated swimming pool and spa or simply lounge on the deck under our poolside mist cooling system. Tours and groups are always welcome.

The world's most famous desert resort, Palms Springs, has something for everybody. And our Palm Springs hotel is minutes of it all. Play on one of the 90 golf courses and 300 tennis courts. Go hiking and horseback riding in the beautiful desert wilderness, or bike trough miles of beautiful trails. Ride the tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto. Or just lie by the pool and get a tan - a very popular activity. Palm Springs and Vagabond Inn are both designed with leisure in mind.

But after a day of relaxation and sun worship, it's likely you'll want to get out and sample the nightlife. And you won't be disappointed. This sophisticated, affordable community offers a vast selection of dining, nightclubs and entertainment opportunities to suit every taste. And the shopping is fantastic, with boutiques, department stores and marketplaces to suit every budget. So go ahead, enjoy!

Dining

Sherman's Deli and Bakery
Why eat bread when you can eat a latke? Sherman's Deli uses a potato pancake instead of bread in their fabulous pastrami sandwich.
The Falls Steakhouse and Martini Bar
Delicious steak, desert romance, and martinis all under one roof.
Elmer's
Once you try a bite of Elmer's Potato Pancakes, cripy on the outside and steamy in the middle, you will agree that this is one of the best family dining experiences in Palm Springs!
Palm Springs Aerial Tram
Spectacular views combined with delectable food provide the perfect dining experience. There are two dining options at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Peaks, a fine dining experience with a breathtaking view of the Coachella Valley and Pines Café, a cafeteria-style restaurant. Both restaurants are open for lunch and dinner.
Hamburger Mary's
Hamburger Mary's is an "open-air bar and grille for open-minded people" where you can count on great food and a fun atmosphere.

Thanksgiving Softball Respite

While searching for a hotel in Palm Springs over Thanksgiving weekend, I thought for sure that rates would be high for all hotels no matter the stars. I was happily surprised that this was not the case. I searched various hotel rates over several internet companies and found the rate and amenities to be good. I researched the positive and negative comments and then decided to select this hotel. My first experience was arriving about 90 before check-in. I had seen a bad comment posted previously about the hotel not allowing a 30 minute early check-in...not true this time. As I walked into the lobby the front desk clerk asked politely if I was checking in. When I asked if I could, she happily obliged. The check-in process held no surprises and was brief. Sh made a room recommendation and have me the type and style I reserved. The stay was comfortable and worth the value I paid. Clean room, comfortable beds, free breakfast, clean heated pool and jacuzzi. Was here for 4 days and no issues. Check-out lasted about long enough for me to drop my keys and the clerk asking me if everything was alright and confirmed I prepayed and a thank you, come again. Would I recommend this hotel...yes. On this trip for me, I found the issues described in the negative comments not to be an issue at all.

My friends and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Aqua Caliente Casino Buffet. A little pricey, but excellent selection and quality. If you like casino buffets...this is a good one Also...I am a pizza junkie. I can't recommend enough Bills Pizza in downtown. What an excellent pizza. You can buy by the slice or whole pies. It was so good, I even tipped the pizza chef. GREAT PIZZA!!

Great Budget Hotel

This is just your average room. If you're on a budget, it's a good hotel. The rooms definitely need to be updated and the bed was a little hard for my comfort, but other than that my stay was comfortable.

Great Room, parking in front of room. Comfortable bed, nice water pressure in shower, close to shopping. Air conditioner needs to be cleaned so the room doesn't smell like mold.

getaway

i've stayed here before and I always know what I am getting. a clean, comfortable room, with plenty of towels, in room coffee, large pool, and a good free breakfast. located south of hwy 111 and not far from palm desert or rancho mirage. the hotel is quiet as well. one slight downside is the TV's are not modern but they do have a good amount of cable programming. ALSO they have microwaves and fridges too.

Best economy stay in Palm Springs so far

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the Palm Springs Vagabond Inn, after many other economy booking at different motels in the area. The room was clean & featured free wifi, fridge, microwave, and even a window in the bathroom letting in genuine natural light. The pool area was very nice, and featured a little "coffee shop" where they offered an impressive free continental breakfast - which, on this peaceful morning, was enhanced by the droves of beautiful French tourists, relaxing with waffles at the bistro tables. The location in town is decent for accessing downtown Palm Springs or forays into Cathedral City/Rancho Mirage/Palm Desert, and the particular lot is interesting, in that it backs right up to the base of the rocky desert foothills. I do believe we will return.

Quick getaway

Great location...but do not stay in the room 341, 241 or 141. There was a tree back there that had a bunch of giant bugs that would fly into our room every time we opened the door. Plus they made so much noise right outside our window it was very annoying.
