A big construction zone. Do not get fooled with star rating. An old hotel under renovation. Also we are overcharged 40 usd for our stay. I booked a room through Agoda including all the fees. When we checked out we are told that we have to pay 40 usd more. I showed the booking info and we got a receipt... More

I was moved into a king room after my dissatisfaction with a double bed. My room was directly above renovations entailing gluing carpet, my room reaked of glue and had to sleep with my sliding door open to reduce the the smell. (This was during the 188 degree days and there were wasps nests on the balcony.) I asked the... More

We came into town for our Anniversary; we had never been to Palm Springs before. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We were upgraded to the biggest suite I had ever seen, and we even found a lovely bottle of champagne with chocolate covered strawberries in our room when we returned for the evening. You should be aware that... More

I needed a place to stay for one night - nothing fancy just needed a bed and a shower. For the first time ever I booked the room thru Hotwire - I don't know what possessed me to do it but I did. The hotel is under construction - hotwire didn't note that - until the end of the year.... More

This hotel needs room renovations. The double sinks in the bathroom have old Delta fixtures, thought the bath control handle was going to fall off trying to turn on the shower. Linens were dingy white. Carpet was wear worn and not stretched tight. The TV is a 19" tube TV. This is the 21st Century. The resturant was empty, could... More

It has older furniture but it's going under renovations to become a Hilton doubletree. The problem I had was when we called for room service for extra blankets and pillows we didn't get it and the messed up our... More

I ended up needing to stop and found this space on booking.com and the pool looked very inviting with the views of the mountains. i called in advance to confirm they had a gym, wi-fi on site. I was NOT told the property was under renovations first of all. The room was dank and smelled like old pee. The carpet... More
